It's school time once again and, just like you, I also have homework! FrownI have papers to do for my masters class. And last Saturday, I told myself that I was going to work on my first paper — and guess what I did all day? I stayed home, fried myself some luncheon meat — which wasn't so bad because I was starving (but tasted kinda gross after a while), and watched TV all day long! After each show, I'd tell myself it was time to get up — I even put my notebook and handouts on the dining table and turned on the lamp beside it so that I had a spot ready. But after each show, it felt like my butt was glued to the couch! It was sooooo hard to just turn off the TV! Glurps And I kept wondering how I was ever going to start writing my paper. Then, my friend told me that she wanted to come over, pick me up, and have dessert at UCC! I panicked! If she got there and I left the house without making a single dent on my paper, I'd feel disgustingly horrible and pathetic. So I turned off the TV and got to work. I didn't finish my paper — I'm still not done. And I really wasted a whole Saturday when I could have finished it. But I am so glad that I've started — at the very least!

There are seven deadly sins, but I think that Procratination should be made the 8th! Do I have any fellow sinners out there? :)

love, Ines

    This reminds me of one of my fave movies, A Love Song for Bobby Long. In one scene, John Travolta was tutoring Scarlett Johansson, and Scarlett was refusing to cooperate. John Travolta said something about procrastination, but since Scarlett didn’t know what the word meant, he defined it for her as “to drag one’s ass in such a manner as to ensure one’s place in life as a loser.” ;) Scarlett was so challenged by that remark that she finally took her studies seriously, graduated from high school, and went on to college! Haha. I found that really inspiring. :)
