College student in dire need of help
Hello all, I'm new to this forum but I've been a procrastinator as long as I can remember.
I'm a freshman in college and aspire to one day become a surgeon. Unfortunately, I leave everything for the last minute. Today I needed to turn in a very complex paper for a philosophy class that I thought that I would be able to do the night before...I failed. I've actually just finished e-mailing my professro as to why I'm staying home and missing his class. "I need more time to finish the paper. I thought that I could do it last night but I was mistaken. Attached is what I have written so far"-that's what I wrote to him (in a nutshell).
I'm so easily distracted. I begin watching T.V. knowing that in the back of my mind I'm procrastinating, but thinking that I'll be able to finish it in a snap.
I'm sure I'm not the only student with this problem. Does anyone have any advice?
