Hi guys,

I've been a procrastinator ever since young age, when at first I got any real responsibilities.

When I have things to do, especially related to schoolwork, I all to often tend to do anything in my power to avoid it. The funny thing is that I really seem to get more things done when it's not as crucial that I finish those things.

For the last 3 days, for example, I should have been studying for an exam I have on Wednesday. Instead, I've passed by every snippet of interesting tech news, read through every interesting blog, found a few flash games to get addicted to and overslept every single day. I've done about 2 hours of actual studying.

The time has come that I really have to face my problem and deal with it. I'm not very hopeful about finishing the course whose exam I have on Wednesday; I have 163 pages to read now and (it's 5:14 PM where I live) I can't study tomorrow, leaving only Wednesday afternoon and tonight.

This is physiology so it's not simply a matter of reading, you have to check out explanatory pictures and memorise a bunch of stuff, most of which I'm seeing for the first time.

I'm so pissed at myself for allowing this to happen. If I had just taken the occasional hour out for studying over the term this wouldn't be a problem at all, but now I'm looking at failing a course I've had plenty of time to revise for.

I'm glad to be in a community of like-minded individuals who understand procrastination. Unfortunately, I feel that people around me don't appreciate procrastination for the problem it really is.

I hope to use this excellent resource to overcome my problem and hopefully help others do the same. I would really like the life where everything can be on schedule.

Hopefully, overcoming procrastination will help me find motivation to learn new things, such as properly structuring my writing. :-)
