Do you procrastinate?

I always find myself procrastinating when it comes to school work. Do you procrastinate?

I procrastinate a lot. I wasn't even registered for any classes on the first day of school! I just went to them to sweet talk the professors into letting me in. Right now I'm 2 for 4 and should know by tomorrow if I can get into the other two courses. Wish my procrastinatin' ass good luck!

I really need to find a way to stop procrastinating for at least school. If it's something I don't really care to do, I'll push it off until the morning of, sometimes. So far I've found myself doing it a less in college, maybe because it's different when you're directly paying for your education.

I am an procrastination "all star"

I am getting better as time goes on, but my motto used to be "why do it today when I can do it tomorrow!"

I didn't see a "**** yes" option so I just voted yes. I am a multi-tasker so I generally post on Bikeforums and procrastinate at the same time. Pretty awesome, huh?

I used to write some masterpiece papers the night before they were due.

Do paper 2 weeks before due = C-
Do paper in middle of night, same morning that it was due = A

Exactly, I might have given it up sooner if it weren't for all the positive feedback! I was in the military for 18 years before I ever had someone say, "You know, you're good, but as your supervisor it would make my life easier if you would do your good things sooner than the very last minute."

I know one or two people who don't procrastinate, and most of them don't seem to have time to hang out the internets.

Weirdos.
