11 Signs You're A Professional Procrastinator

We’ve all been guilty of procrastinating before. Whether it be that you’re just super busy or just flat out don’t want to, you’ve put something on the back burner. But there’s a difference between procrastinating every now and again and being a full blown professional procrastinator. Here are the signs you are one of the latter:

1. You do assignments by their due dates

And then turn them in with five minutes to spare.

2. You wait to put gas in your car until that automated warning is literally screaming at you

3. You wait to shop for groceries until you only have half meals and useless condiments

Cereal but no milk? Peanut butter and jelly but no bread? Yup. This is a regular occurrence.

4. You have to set at least five alarms in the morning just to be able to open your eyes

5. Your homework is sitting there staring at you but you're scrolling through Netflix suggestions instead

6. You feel the urge to check all of your social media before starting a task

Even though you just checked everything thirty seconds ago.

7. You wait to do laundry until you have a mountain of clothes forming on your hamper

8. You make a to-do list before you do anything

And then you stare at it contemplating what to do first or stash it away for tomorrow.

9. You look at your phone and realize you've ignored people for two days

Maybe I'll reply now... I've got nothing better to do.

10. You convince yourself you will be productive after a short nap

It's never a short nap.

11. You tell yourself you'll eventually stop procrastinating

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
