This is one of my biggest problems when it comes to class assignments, projects, and just everyday life. I am the BIGGEST procrastinator. Once the professor gives out an assignment I always tell myself that I'm gonna go ahead and get it out the way so I don't have to do it at the last minute... well, that never happens. I always end up pushing it back and back to two days before its due or the night before. With everyday life, I'll tell myself I'm gonna go to the gym or finish an errand on a certain day and all I do is keep pushing it back until I just don't do it at all. I don't know why I procrastinate the way I do and I figured once I got to college I would change, but I didn't. Even though I am a procrastinator, it seems like that is when I do my best work. With every assignment or project I've procrastinated on I always receive an "A" as a grade. I like the feeling of being under pressure because it makes me work harder. I feel like if I work on an assignment/project right when it's assigned then I will half-ass it. Just so I can say I finished it and it's out the way. But if I do it two days before or the night before it's due that's when all of my effort goes into it. I also will feel happy with my work too. My mom has always gotten onto me about my procrastination but once I brought home that "A" she's nothing but happy. I also know that I cannot procrastinate forever and I cannot procrastinate all my years through college, so I plan on changing my bad habit very soon. But I know everyone procrastinates so I am not the only one.
