Procrastination is the norm for most people nowadays. Before it was reserved for that “special” type of person that later became a complete screwup, but now everyone does it. I honestly blame the parents & teachers for letting us get away with this. Who else extends the deadlines and refuses to keep track of faulty work habits? Now there exists a generation of deadbeat young people. I had come to accept my horrible habit then the summer began. The summer means that I can pretty much sit on my behind to my hearts content, which I take full advantage of. The problem now is that with nothing of real significance to do, I now refuse to do anything at all. I have all these very small things that need to get done, but yet I don’t do them. I haven’t cleaned my disgusting room, done any laundry, met a friend for lunch because I didn’t want to take the train across the city, written cover letters for any potential job, pursued any scholarships, figured out what to do with my ever-growing hair, and even put off sleep some nights just cuz. It’s a legitimate problem now and I’m worried of what this means. In the end, I guess I’m just a really unmotivated person. It took me having absolutely nothing of importance to do to realize the extent of my condition. Where’s my Oprah episode?
