    I have an ass-ton of homework to do. I really don't want to do it. I know I'm desperate when I start cleaning, like I did earlier today, or when I spend too much time on Talkbass, like I am now. My stupid semester STILL isn't over; I have all of my finals next week. Which means I have papers to write and projects to finish.

    Maybe I have some laundry I can do.
     
  2. I feel you brother. Nothing puts me in the mood for reading, cleaning my room, practicing my bass (or mandolin), or getting around to all those other things I want to do, like a good chunk of homework.


    Free time? That's for video games.

    Ah, that is SO true.

    I feel kinda bad bitching about being priveleged enough to go to school and study what I want to so that someday I can have my dream job... but Madden is calling me and I really don't care what the MLS says about my referencing system. Oy.

    I know how you feel. I'm homeschooled, am 18, still have 6 courses left to finish, so i can take music theory classes in the fall at LA tech college. the real tech,, not a tech school. But for some reason,,, i just spend all my time on talkbass, or playing bass, or listening to music,, and when i have free time,, i use the bathroom,,,, god i need to get my priorites strait.

  7. huh, procrastination-what is that. ummmmmm, well, does being on talkbass instead of cleaning house mean that. or finding better things to do than cleaning. hmmmmmmm, yeah, i guess i am one also. i like a clean house, however, sometimes it seems that is all i do, clean, cook, wash, work. so i have fun instead at times:D
    wow, bigwill, did not know you played mandolin. i could sit for hours listening to the sound of that. it is so unique. :D

    Last night I was at home with no plans, so I decided to go to a meditation class.

    I mean, I figured it beat just sitting around doing nothing...


    ...:D

    Yeah that's why I almost failed out of college. There was an assignment that was suppose to take us like... ohhh 2 months to finish. I started doing it the night it was due. But I also suffer from being a dumbass... so I've got two strikes against me right there.
     
  11. I know about procrastination. I have a Pathology exam tomorrow morning, which i missed most of the lectures for, but yet I'm currently on TB and I can't quite seem to drag myself upstairs to revise. When I do, I'll probably just end up playing GTA3 anyway :p.

    Yeah...I'm a huge procrastinator...thats like all I do.

    Every so often I may get the urge to do something productive, and I'll focuse a good deal of time and energy on it(cleaning my room, building something, practicing Turntable stuff, doing homework)

    unfortunatly for me my School schedule is so lax for me that I can afford to procrastinate on homework.
    I don't have a 2nd or 3rd period so everyday after English class, I do the homework for 4th and maybe 5th
    6th period(music Theory AP) we rarely have homework, and when we do its easy. Its really only 4th and 5th that I have homework, that is time consuming, all the time. English AP homework is easy.

    So since I CAN I do...but then sometimes someone wants to do something during 2nd or 3rd period that involves me, and then I can't get my work done because I'm so set on my easy schedule that I don't think to do it any other time.

    oh well.

    one thing I've never slacked on is Practicing bass, no matter what mood I'm in I can always pick up my bass and play.
     
  16. Not I. It's been on my to-do list for over a year now, but I always seem to find an excuse to put it off for another day. I guess I'll just never be a good procrastinator.
     
  17. Mandolin gets you major chickage

    :D :D :D
     
  18. I am in the act right now, actually. Half an hour ago I came up to the computer to start my paper on Local Govt. that we have had for a month and it is due tommarow, and so far I've only been on talkbass. It is only due in 13 hours, so really I don't have start it for another few hours or so.

    True story here......A month or so ago, AOL had a link to a quiz on their sign on screen titled "Are you a procrastinator? Take this quiz and see". I instantly was interested, and just before I went to click the link, I thought to myself "nah.....I'll check it out later". It took me about 30 seconds to realize what I actually did.....I laughed off and on all night about that, and never did check out the quiz......I guess I failed lol.
