It's Crunch Time

Hi, my name is Kinsey and I'm a procrastinator.

Hi Kinsey!

I think there should be a serious club on campus for procrastinators. Of course, the officers would have to be non-procrastinators, otherwise nothing would get accomplished. You see, I had all the time in the world to work on my website for my Web Development class and study for my two tests that I have tomorrow, but I haven't even started my website or studied. Talk about waiting until the last minute.

Even now, I should be studying...but I'm blogging. I even went for a run after class, because it is b-e-a-u-tiful outside.

I know procrastination is a problem for most college students. Facebook, myspace, Twitter, video games, and the internet in general are the main culprits. Blogging and reading other blogs are part of my procrastination problems. YouTube too!

To add to my "problem," I'm a senior with a bad case of Senioritis.

Procrastination and Senioritis aren't as bad as they sound. Honestly, I always turn my homework in on time and I always study (even if it's for a little bit).

This led me to look up adrenaline addiction, because I remember watching on TV about procrastination and its connection to an adrenaline rush. I found this article "Did School Teach You to Procrastinate?" and I think it did.

So now I must leave you and actually start doing something. It's crunch time and I'm kind of craving some Cap'n Crunch. Maybe I'll eat a bowl of cereal and then start studying.


  1. Your post reminded me how OLD I am. When I was in college, way back in the late 90's, there was no blogging and You Tube. Heck, the Internet was so new that it wasn't until my senior year that I had to cite 1 internet site in a paper. But anyway, procrastination in college is universal, regardless of the means of procrastination. Enjoy it while you can!

  2. I know what you mean sister! I am the same way!

  3. Count me in if there's such group! Haha :)

  4. There is no way said club would ever exist. It would make the procrastinator that started it a non-procrastinator...

  5. Procrastination is a horrible, horrible thing. Take it from me, if you have a 100 page senior thesis to do, DON'T wait until the last minute. It will make you a burned out, caffeine addicted hermit. But at least I know I can bust out 50 pgs of scientific BS in a span of 2 wks. :)

  6. Stephanie Ann - this is exactly what I'm talking about. Procrastination and pride go hand-in-hand.
