Procrastinators Unite! ~~ Ok, Maybe Tomorrow…

I am a card carrying Procrastinator and proud of it! 

Ok, maybe not always, but it is something I am really good at. Too good unfortunately.

Like many Americans, I am just finishing up my taxes. Yes, the pain of my reality was too great to do any sooner. But that isn’t the only reason. Too much work to do and definitely way too much concentration.

There lies the root of my procrastination:

(A)     30% is just Painful – Not as in painful it hurts physically, but painful like banging my head against the wall, it’s too painful to do this crap. Also known as B O R I N G or I just don’t want to do it.

(B)     70% is from Lack of Concentration – Bad case of “Shiny Thing Syndrome”

Yep, I’m easily distracted. I’ve said it. I’ve admitted it. I have way more fun things that catch my eye or create pleasure. Like a moth to a flame, I can’t help myself. Like a kitty to laser light, I’m off and running by the first thing that catches my eye.

This blog is a great example. I love doing it. I love making you all laugh or smile. I love to see your comments or thoughts and I’m obsessed with now hitting 10,000 views (Ok, this just started to eat at me as I hit 7,500 a few days ago). But darn it! I have more fun doing this than any of the “Adult” junk I have to do.

But let’s be honest, if I didn’t have the blog, there would be some other thing I would rather be doing other than what I should be doing.

I’ve always been like this. Even as a kid I’d put off papers or homework until the last minute. Swearing I did my best work then. Which believe it or not, I still think it true. When I’m in the crunch, I tend to focus 100% on accomplishing what I have a mere few hours left to do. If I try starting early, the darn shiny object syndrome kicks in again and I’m only half ass doing what I should be.

Sighhhhh, what’s a girl to do?…….

I don’t know. Maybe tomorrow I can think of a solution…..

 

~~~till we laugh again~~~

    I am a professional procastinator, too. I have been since I was a child. In high school, we went to FL over Christmas break. I had a paper due the day we returned to school, but since we were supposed to come home from FL on Saturday I figured I had all day Sunday to do my paper. What I did not count on was the plane having to make an emergency landing at a different airport in FL delaying our return home by one day causing me to pull an all-nighter to get the paper written.

    I try very hard to not put things off. Hate crunches … but Paprika reminded me of the very worst time I procrastinated … when I had to sew my bridesmaid’s dress for my BFF’s wedding. Well …almost finished … I went out on Friday night, thinking I’d have all day to finish on Saturday in time for the wedding that night … right? I ended up having a very good time 😉 , stayed out all night and my BFF dropped me off at home. But my parents were gone and I was locked out. I sat on the door step, with a major hangover, for most of the day, waiting. Long story short, I had to tape the hem and the top of the dress was so messed up, all of us bridesmaids had to walk holding our flowers up in front so I could hide my hideous sewing job. 🙁

    I am a grand procrastinator. I justify this by saying I work better under pressure. This is not really true, though, because I get evil under pressure and begin to resemble Cinderella’s stepmother.
