Better Late than Never

by Toni Jarnigin

Procrastination! Every student knows what this word means; simply because it is his or her right-hand-man. Let me give you an example relating to my own experience:


Well to start off, it took me twenty-seven days to finally start this blog. I knew I had a blog due by the end of February and on February 27th, I finally sat down to start it. In all honesty, the only reason I actually started it was because my boss told me that I had to get it done. Before I started my blog, I noticed that my boss’s paperclips were not organized correctly, so I spent a good fifteen minutes putting them exactly how I wanted them in the little container on his desk. I would not be able to think to write the blog knowing that the paperclips were not in the container correctly.
 As I sat down at the desk, I felt the ribbon in my hair sliding off of my head. As any girl would do, I decided that the ribbon was more important and that there was no way that the blog would get done unless the ribbon was fixed. I fixed the ribbon.
Since my hair was just how I wanted it, it was time to blog. As I started typing the title, I decided that I wanted to watch a video about procrastination first. Naturally, I walked into the other room and watched not one, but two videos on procrastination. The information was extremely needed in order to write this blog (but as we all know, that information will not be included because it really is not that important). It was time to start writing.
Sitting in the chair, I could see the big, green exercise ball mocking me. It was sitting in the middle of the floor, and I knew that it did not belong there. I had to put that away before I could write the blog. I weighed my options, and decided that putting the ball away was more important. That took longer than expected because I am short and I could not get the ball to stay on the high shelf. When I finally got it, I sat down at the desk and wrote the blog.

Everyone knows how I felt while writing this blog. Procrastination is one of the most prominent college student “disorders”. In the words of the great Ellen DeGeneres, “Procrastinate now, don’t put it off!”
