Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

From the Free Online Dictionary:

pro·cras·ti·nate play_w2(“P0578200”) (pr-krst-nt, pr-)

v. pro·cras·ti·nat·ed, pro·cras·ti·nat·ing, pro·cras·ti·nates

To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness.

To postpone or delay needlessly.

[Latin prcrstinre, prcrstint- : pr-, forward; see pro-1 + crstinus, of tomorrow (from crs, tomorrow).]

pro·crasti·nation n.
pro·crasti·nator n.

Yep, that’s me. I’ll confess that I am suffering from procrastination BIG time these days. I suspect that the sheer volume of work I have to do over the next seven-and-a-half weeks, compounded with the fact that I can now see some light at the end of the tunnel has me dragging my feet on all things school-related. On a positive note, I am relieved to say that I believe I finally have a research problem for my Masters’ thesis. Now, I need to get started on it.

The funny thing is that when thoughts of having free time do enter my brain, I’m a bit scared at the idea of not having homework constantly hanging over my head. I mean, after five years of ALWAYS having something to do, how am I going to handle not having anything to do? It’s a scary prospect, but I am eagerly (maybe too eagerly) looking forward to dealing with it.

Not much else is new. My reading has definitely waned again. I’ve decided that the only way I am going to get through these next two courses is to become a hermit. I can’t open myself up to any unnecessary socializing or else the temptation is too great to avoid all school.

Okay, that’s enough procrastination…time to get back to finishing yet another paper. Anyone interested in accounting theory? Who would have thought that there would be an entire class devoted to accounting theory? Crazy…
