Greetings, I'm Fermiona... and I am a procrastinator. :-P

Procrastination has been a part of my life for such a long time, that it seems nearly impossible I could ever get rid of it. It brought me problems in school, I'm always late, I procrastinate even when it comes to sleep... I often go to bed at 5 AM, I eat microwave-melted cheese just because I'm too lazy to cook myself a dinner.

I postpone everything up to the point, where the task starts to terrify me (because I know there isn't enough time) and that makes it even more painful to begin working on it. As a result I am tired, often sick, I postpone and/or fail exams and, most of all, it makes me sooo stressed.

I have been fighting this problem in many ways, but nothing worked at all. I don't think I can do this alone... And this is where PA comes in. :) In fact, this forum has already started helping me. The (10+2)x5 method is amazing and it helped me so much this weekend! So thanks to all, I already feel better about myself.
