So, how badly do you procrastinate, and for what?

I still haven't gotten around to doing my club because of it :p

I'll answer this question tomorrow.

Pretty badly. Mostly because I'm too caught up on video games or whatever it is I'm doing to go do some work.

My apartment has no tv or anything really so procrastination usually isn't too much of an issue. And there's only so much time I can spend on the internet.

I used to procrastinate a lot in high school, by not doing assignments until the last minute. I'm in my second year of college right now, and I don't find myself doing that anymore. I like to do my stuff right away now and get it over with.

On a scale of one to eleven, I'm a thirteen and a half. I am absolutely terrible about procrastination, though not as bad as when I used to do all the work of an assignment or two the period(s) before they were due and end up either doing it completely wrong or skipping over a part of it. It frustrated me, so I tried to stop procrastinating but it's a difficult habit to break after such a long time doing it.

I have a research paper for my sociology class due on Saturday and I have an essay that I have to complete by Saturday and I have another research paper that's due next Saturday that I haven't started either. My weekly schedule doesn't really allow me room to procrastinate like that, either, though, because I work full time at ridiculous hours.

I procrastinate for everything ever. If I can put it off, it gets put off until the last minute. It's to the point it's one of my major flaws. End of story. >_<

If it can be procrastinated, I'll will procrastinate doing it. I actually stay up maybe 3 hours later than I should because I'm either procrastinating doing homework (which usually takes 10 minutes) or going to sleep. I don't know why I procrastinate going to sleep, as I crave it so much in the morning.

I really need to fix this. :/

I'm a mild procrastinator. If I like doing something or am looking forward to doing it I will definitely get on with completing it as soon as possible; but if it's something that I don't particularly like, then I will procrastinate. XD; I'm not the biggest procrastinator out there, but I am one at times nonetheless! :P

I've become really bad with procrastinating. Now I'll read my VMs when I wake up in the morning and then I'll get distracted and suddenly it's after midnight that night and I think "oh wow I should reply to them now" whereas I used to do it right away. I should get back to doing things as they come!

I procrastinate all the time. Its a bad habit of mind. In fact, I'm here instead of doing homework. xD But my brother's the exact opposite. He gets everything he needs done ASAP and I'm still sitting there watching TV while he's bragging about he's finished.

I procrastinate but never past when I absolutely need to do something. I know some people that will procrastinate past a deadline and come up with excuses for it, but I almost always get things done BY the deadline haha.

I'm pretty bad at procrastinating, but I will do stuff when I need to, even if it involves staying up and going into a mad rush to get things done. I wasn't this bad regarding procrastination in the past, I seemed to get worse as I got toward the end of my undergraduate studies in college... mainly because the subject matter got harder and I'd have to spend more time studying and I'd get bored and want to do something more fun. It always starts out as "Okay, I'm going to take a 15 minute break from this work" then 15 minutes turns into hours...

My problem that leads to me procrastinating is that (a) I'm too easily distracted by other, more fun things, and (b) I find myself feeling drowsy far more often than I should be. And when I feel like I'd rather be watching anime or going to bed, it's hard to get stuff done that I need to.

Procrastination. That's what I'm doing now, when I'm supposed to be studying for my finals. My procrastination activities include facebook, twitter, playing pokemon, watching youtube videos and of course, being here. Not that I dislike this place, I really love it; making my procrastination even worse. To sum it up, procrastination is one of my major flaws. Trying my best to kick the habit, but old habits die hard.

I procrastinate everything. Chores, homework (especially homework), and even simple stuff like taking a bath. Yup, I know, I have issues. I'm a good procrastinator though. I get **** done even if I do procrastinate it. Homework, I "plan out". By that I mean I have a designated time that I will do it and I make sure to give myself enough time to do it. If I'm given work over the weekend, I usually just relax until Sunday, which is when I'll do my homework.

My teacher gave us a research project back in my 3rd year of high school, and she made us continue that research up until now (I'm in my 4th year now ) and I haven't made any progress... I have group mates though, and they're procrastinating too...

If I procrastinate it is only at the start of something, and only enough such I can still finish early

I'm a chronic procrastinator. :( I constantly put things off--anything, even fun things sometimes--because I'm too lazy to do them or they seem too hard.

I've gotten a LOT better in the last year about taking charge and getting things out of the way as soon as possible but I'm starting to slip a little bit. :( I've been procrastinating the last question on one of my assignments all day and I'm really hoping when I wake up in the morning the deadline adrenaline will kick in because otherwise I'm not sure I'll have it done by Wednesday haha.

Ms. Procrastination is Q1 of the four Quadrants of ... whatsis of the book called 7 Habits of teenagers or what...

In my high school years I procrastinate a lot. Ever since I stepped into college I developed the habit of planning ahead. Helps a lot.
