ok so it's 3:30am right now, and i am starting my homework due at 12..

every single time at this point i tell myself never again--from now on i will do it before it's due, and i mean it.

but yet here i am.

I swear to god, laziness becomes me.

Come on, give a thumbs up for good old fassion procrastinating...

hey dudes, procrastinating is really nothing to be proud of.

It's a disease that u all should try to get rid of.

We all know but it's a damn hard problem to kick. I think I was born with it. Blame the genes!!!! :p

I have the worst case of procastination known to man. I procrastinate sleeping (sleep around 5am most of the time), I procrastinate waking up (wake up around 1pm-2pm), I procrastinate eating. I don't procrastinate playing computer games, but I think that's considered procrastinating on real work that could be done.

I simply work better under pressure. When I was still in school, I'd wait until 2 or 3 days before a test to start studying. I wouldn't start 2 weeks before like some people. I also didn't wait until 3 hours before like you ATOTers.

I'm an expert... If a paper's due I really won't start till around 12 at night the day before it's due. Sorta horrible but I've gotten through a ton of papers like that and haven't really been doing horribly in school so I don't think i'll stop.

So lame..I can't believe no one's posted this yet.

I put the "PRO" in procrastinating.

My friend and I have that as our away messages sometimes...b/c it's so corny. We have procrastinating contests too.

I should be working on my paper right now. D4mn ATOT! :p

I had a 15 page research paper on Teddy Roosevelt due at 11AM and didnt start until 7AM that morning in undergrad. I got an A. Like most others, its not any fun without the pressure.

It depends.

On easy classes I generally wait till the last minute and then study.

On harder classes I'll start earlier.
