It’s final season, which means sudden shortages of chairs in the library, increases in coffee sales at the café, and frantic typing on view everywhere, as people try to stuff into their heads the things they’ve forgotten, or never put in there in the first place. For me and a lot of other people most finals are papers, not tests. While there’s no need to create and memorize a couple thousand flash-cards, there’s still the problem of procrastination. A friend of mine thinks he can write 40 pages in a weekend, even though he could have spread it out over a month. What a lot of people don’t realize, though, is how good it feels to not procrastinate. If you realize that you have to do something, why not just do it? Cross it off the to-do list, double-check your work, do whatever’s left, and then relax while your friends panic.
