    What do you do when you're supposed to be doing something else?

    For example, I have a take-home quiz from my "History of the Civil Rights Movement" where I'm supposed to write an essay about the system of white supremacy was built and sustained from the American Revolution to the end of World War II.

    It's due tomorrow.

    So I figured tonight was a good time to start browsing the "Critique Center" and "Sketches & WIP" forums. I also figured that this is an excellent time to start up an absolutely asinine thread in the Lounge.

    And afterwards, I'm considering maybe getting back to Sve about my reflections on the Bible that I promised her (that is, of course, after I start reading it).

    Or maybe I'll work on gathering sources and info for my paper on "The Nation of Islam" movement that Malcolm X belonged to. Because the irony of procrastinating on a take-home quiz by working on a paper that's due much later in the same class is so delicious I can literally taste it.

    So, what do you do when you've got something to get done but decide to procrastinate instead?

    Make asinine posts in an asinine thread in the lounge. (not just yours!)

    Not only should I be using this waking moment to work on my portfolio, but I got some English stuff to do. More importantly is sleep though. I can do the English HW on the bus! =)

    yeah im with you.. i usually tend to do anything but what i should be doing.. which unfortunately includes sleep. i should be in bed right now, or preparing for this weekend, or cleaning my apartment.. or preparinig my files for tomorrow. instead im watching a dvd and sketching.. and posting.

    if it weren't for procrastination.. nothing would ever get done at the last minute.. what the hell else would we do with our free time?? - JAG
    it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..

    I come here.

    Es fließt durch meine Venen, Es schläft in meinen Tränen
    Es läuft mir aus den Ohren, Herz und Nieren sind Motoren

    I'm supposed to be studying for tests I have tomorrow, and also have one essay written that was supposed to be given in by tuesday. My School project is also not done. Which it should've been at the start of this year. Instead I thought it would be better to sit down, draw and play some computer (posting at CA and chatting away) I'm in trouble...
