The biggest fear of any student that hides in your closet, under your bed, or even in the fridge, is the Procrastination Monster. It rears its ugly head whenever you are compelled to do something important and you suddenly have the urge to clean your room, with a toothbrush. Excavate ancient alien technology in your background that you were meaning to do for the past few years, or alphabetize your socks. Even recreating the Cold War would be easier than to get rid of this burden, heck, even creating a time machine to go back in time to stop yourself from procrastinating is more interesting. Although, creating a time machine might prove useful. Hold on a second there. Did it work? Note to self, never use time machine in broad daylight.
We all enjoy a quick glance at the fridge to see what we could munch on, however when you are infected with procrastinitis, yes, that is a word, look it up, you tend to open the fridge five to six times, in a minute. Procrastinitis is highly contagious, for example you wake up in the morning with thoughts that you will actually do something that day, and just a second of letting your guard down, BOOM, you already rolled over and are back to sleep.
Scientists are already working around the clock to find a cure, so far nothing seemed to prove effective, however there is a wild theory that if you unplug your Internet, you can make a remarkable recovery in under five minutes. But let’s face it, who in their right mind would just unplug their Internet, intentionally, for no particular reason.
We have all been in that state where you just aimlessly look at images in hopes that you will overcome your feeling of procrastination and actually start doing something, never works out, does it? Here’s what you should do next time, DO NOT OPEN ANY BROWSERS! Do not under any circumstances, no matter how many e-mails you have to check or how many social networks require your attention, do not. Finish your work, then reward yourself with aimless oblivious mind indulgent and, um, what was I writing about? Oh yeah.
Stop procrastinating. Go do your work. Now. Stop reading this. Go.
