Just wait another minute

Procrastinating is used in the dictionary said as this : To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness.

We all put something aside for later, such as paying bills, making your bed, and for others is might be peeing.

What is the best thing you Procrastinate on ? The dictionary gave 3 descriptive angles of what Procrastinating is, are you able to seperate these (put off doing something, out of habitual carelessness, laziness) and put your bills in under one section, put off peeing in another and walking your cat on another or is it all just one meaning to you ?

In my lexicon, procrastinating is avoidance behavior. I'd rather to this, than mow the lawn, pay my bills, whatever.

ok, dear Cute... your wish is my command I'll post my latest procrastination experience on here.

I am (ehem...) "The Procrastinator" (with Swartzeneggar accent and Terminator sounds in the background).

my writting assignment, 4-5 page essay comparing the educational experiences of indigenous ppls of usa, canada, and australia to one another. using quotes and scenes from the book and movie we had to read/watch to back up our essay. This project i actually *have* been working on all week. I watched the movie and read 1/2 the book... i've got hte ideas all laid out in my head, but will be writing the paper tonight at work. But i think my procrastination... well, part is avoidance behavior. part is just i plan my time to thin and/or things take longer than i plan. (like sending a fax from kinko's... who'd have thought i'd have to stand there 20 minutes waiting for ANYbody to acknowledge my existence? I tried everything short of loudly yelling about it, or walking back and helping myself to their equipment). On the bright side... I work well under pressure. (The trick is... to lie to myself and move the deadlines up a few weeks. but so far it's not worked).

ok... and yep... here i am, procrastinating again much better to blog than to sleep. "i'll sleep when i'm dead". goodnight....

and note: i've had a procrastination blog in mind for about 2 months now. lol. maybe i'll get to it THIS weekend. though i've said that before.

(PS: remember your "super hero or super villain" post? "The Procrastinator" as superhero and villain was born then)

I put off putting gas in my car. I mean, I wait until it is below empty...I don't know WHY I do this. Maybe if I run out of gas on lonely dark road in the middle of the night I'll stop. Is it a subconscious need to live on the edge???? I don't know!

Also, in college I ALWAYS waited until the night before a paper was due to get it done. Thank god I could write lots of "fill in" crap that got me through it...with good grades even! Go figure. You think the professors really read them?
