I've procrastinated and now I can't find the time to finish what I need to finish. Why do I keep sabotaging myself? ::)


Yeah. :sad sigh: It just seems simple. It never is.

The problem I have with procrastination, isn't simply putting things off until later. That's part of it, but I have never put things off just to put things off or because I was lazy. Everything I put off until later were things I honestly thought I had the time to still get done. So all the common "helpful" advice doesn't help at all because it comes from people that do not understand what the problem is.

And then there are all the times when I had a huge project due in the morning and I could get it done just barely in time and still come out better than most students. That doesn't help me when I'm deciding my priorities.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I focus better when time is running out but stress myself out, perhaps unnecessarily, which is why I don't like it when I procrastinate, though I keep doing it. Priorities change on a daily or even hourly basis. :grin:

"A little procrastination never hurt anyone", I often tell myself. I just never get around to doing it.

Oh, hush you lot, I just have no time to procrastinate, I've put it off until I have a few minutes to spare! Manhā . . . Maybe.
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Google Translate helps, but it's still a lousy program for translating. Probably the best one free programs out there though.

Syntax, is Google translate's biggest obstacle.

To be fair, it used to be much worse. They still sometimes come up with funny word choices though and you can forget about translating language-specific expressions.

I was in the middle of typing an email to a potential employer when the cat walked across my keyboard and sent it.

I'll take it! :point&giggle:
I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

I can do a nice line in keyboard fences: traditional white pailings, wrought iron spears, razor wire . . .

Not really :grin: !
