have you ever had something you needed done, but felt lazy, so you said "i'll do it later?"

I have. it's called the "i'll do it later" syndrome. here's how it works:

you have a project due, but you are currently engaged in your favorite activity: watching TV, reading a book (seriously... who reads anymore?), watching porn, posting on wtf.com, or whatever you do. so, you say "i'll do it when i'm done this."

so, you finish whatever you're doing, but your project isn't due for another 3 weeks. so, you say "i'll do it tomorrow." tomorrow rolls around, but you feel too damn lazy. "i'll do it after supper." "i'll do it tomorrow." "i'll do it next week."

so, finally the day before the project is due rolls around, and the thought flashes through your mind. "Oh fuck, i have that project due tomorrow." then you get mad at the teacher/boss/whoever gave you the project for "not giving you more time."

it is something that affects lazy humans all over the world.

Ok, a little update. I went to do my paper after i got off around 11:40 and as i'm going through my notebook for a clean sheet of paper i realise that holy shit, I have a test in the morning. So I ended up staying awake until 2 am studdying on top of writing the paper.

Ahhh fuck it. I'll do it later.

procrastination is like masturbation. at first it feels good, but in the end, you're just fucking yourself.
