I don’t think I have ever procrastinated a paper this much. I just finished writing a paper that is due in one hour. Usually I am the type of person who completes a paper at least two days before it is due then re-reads it the day before and turns it in. Not the case this time. I didn’t even start the paper until Tuesday afternoon. That’s two days before it was due. The problem was that I just did not want to write the paper. It was supposed to be about information that I had already done a class presentation over, so I just did not look forward to re-hashing my thoughts again. The professor had already heard my thinking about the film and the scripture, so I didn’t want to put it all into words. While the paper was only 5-7 pages, my fingers seemed to move very slowly across the screen.
The lesson I have learned: Don’t procrastinate. It just doesn’t work for my writing style. I like to write something then let it sit a few days before re-reading, and I did not have time to do that this time. Thus this paper is one of the poorest I have written. Thankfully it’s not for an English class, so maybe the poor quality won’t matter as long as the information is there.
