The Seven Deadly Stages Of Procrastination

To do this now or later is the question? Later.

The Seven Deadly Stages Of Procrastination

Procrastination is an awful, awful disease that can eat you alive. At one point in your life you have probably put something very important off until the last minute. Everything usually works out in the end okay. But if you want to quit having panic attacks and stressing out then I would recommend starting assignments earlier than the due date!

Stage 1: Putting It Aside

I'm busy, I'll do it later. I have plenty of time to do this assignment.

Stage 2: Unfounded Motivation

Okay I'm ready to begin this assignment! Even though I only have one night to write it now, it'll be great. It's totally OK. I've got this.

Stage 3: Other Important Priorities

You know what... I just noticed how dirty and organized my room is. I'm going to clean my room first because the mess is really distracting me! I also should organize all my notebooks for class. And maybe go through my emails and sort them. I'm glad I did all that first, now I can start writing my assignment again.

Stage 4: The Not So Important Priorities

I haven't checked Facebook in a while. Or Instagram, or Snapchat, or Twitter. Now that I've checked all those I should read the news. The news is important right? This COULD be very resourceful information for my assignment.

Stage 5: False Start

Okay this time I am really doing it. I am startingggggg, now! I'm just going to open this word document first and think about what to write..

Stage 6: False Accomplishment

Wow I wrote a whole page in one hour! I'll finish this in no time. I can't believe I put it off this long. I guess since I wrote a page I can take a break and check Facebook now.

Stage 7: PANIC

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
