Procrastination happens to the best of us because sometimes you just can't bring yourself to focus on all of the tasks on your to-do list! Now that syllabus week is long behind you, those due dates that you marked on your calendar are fast approaching. A month ago, it didn't hit you that you had tons of major assignments for every class all due within the same two-week span.
