Growing Apologist

Becoming a Defender of Truth

Ahh, the Joys of Procrastination

I must confess– I’m an avid procrastinator.  I practice this hobby all the time.  I even compare methods as I’m deciding how to put off all dreaded tasks that require my attention.  Let’s see, do I pretend to just forget this time?  Perhaps I will think about it and say, I really really need to get this done– but right now is not convenient.  First thing tomorrow, I will do it.  Or come up with an excuse of why it can’t be done– But I have friends coming over this weekend!  Never mind that I’m just inviting them now, they are coming and that leaves no time for other things!

Ahh, my great friend, procrastination.  My most recent (okay maybe not recent, but definitely long time standing) procrastination is this blasted graduate course that I am in at the insistence of my boss (okay, another confession, I volunteered to take it).  So this class started back in January and it was suppose to end in May, but I got a really long extension on it, promising myself that I would get it done in July.  Then August… September………

But dear friend, Procrastinator, you are such a bad influence on me.  We cannot be friends anymore!  I must grow up!  Again.  This time its for good.  No slipping back– I will finish this graduate course!

I have a long weekend ahead of me.  For once, I am not excited for the end of the work week.  This evening, I start my take home midterm that I will have until Monday evening to complete.  72 hours of joyful mind boggling questions, banging my head against a brick wall, exhaustive watching and re-watching of lectures…… Maybe it can wait until next weekend…
