Procrastination - The Thief Of Time
It's a well known saying, and if you read any blog by someone who is studying, procrastination is a word that occurs frequently. I have had a bad night where I haven't managed to get much sleep. That's a bit strange as the thing that I expected to cause me sleep problems was cancelled and I should have slept quite well.
As the making of the video has been cancelled it means that I can now spend the day working on my TMAs, something that I should have been doing for the last couple of weeks but I have managed to find reasons for not doing as much work as I should have, although to be honest depression has made concentrating on anything more complicated than a Ladybird book somewhat difficult.
So this morning I must get down to it and try to finish off a 600-word essay about the Dalai Lama. Then it's on to another essay, this time relating to two poems. If I knuckle down to it, it should be well within my capabilities, but that thief Procrastination comes sneaking up and distracts me. I have decided that today I am not going to let it influence me too much, so I shall close down my browser so that I don't get lured into reading blogs, shall get my books and notes, sit down with a drink (diet Coke) and pull these essays into shape.
I am determined that Procrastination will not win today.
