Do you procrastinate too much?

I don't know why, but for some reason it seems like it's some sort of deadly sin for me to get a homework assignment or project done immediately after it's assigned. I always sit up until about 3:30 a.m. the morning it's due rushing to get it done on time, and for some reason I always get good grades.

At this very moment, I'm putting off writing a ten page paper that's worth 50% of my grade in one of my classes. It's due tomorrow, and I haven't even started.

The funny thing is, when I actually take my time and complete an assignment with a lot of time to spare, I NEVER do as well as I do when I procrastinate. I guess it's because I don't have the time to go back and second-guess my work or critique it as harshly. Is this a singular phenomenon or does anyone else seem to do better when they procrastinate?

I'm at the point where I don't get around to it at all XD, but in high school I did the same thing, and yes... I work better under pressure. "I must get this done, and make it look like I didn't stay up the morning it was due," so I usually poop out a better assignment/paper at the last minute.

Once again I restate "Procrasination is like masturbation, you're only fucking yourself."

I'm the same way, ferengi. It's a natural thing. The pressure makes for better work because you have to make it look like you took your time.
