According to Parkinson's Law,

"Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion." via
This is especially true with me.
I've only had one day of class, but somehow I feel booked solid.

Some people procrastinate so that they only have an hour to work, and, as a result, their work only takes an hour.

But I can't function that way. So I end up starting way in advance and spending six hours on a task that should take half an hour.

I'm already overwhelmed by what isn't done.
Why is my new apartment still a mess!?
Why haven't I studied for the GRE more?
Why does my brain feel like applesauce?


It's like I only know how to get stuff done when I'm stressing about it. This is a problem.

In other news, 
I am happy to be back at college. I missed everybody a lot. I don't ever want to graduate.
(I would just be happy never to do schoolwork again.)

  1. I kind of giggled when I read this. Sorry for your pain. I just really related to starting it early and having it take longer than it should. I really can't stop bugging myself until I do it. Sometimes I wished I procrasinated. :)

  2. I know! Sometimes I wish I could procrastinate, too! Procrastinators still get stuff done; it just takes them less time.

  4. Idea: tell yourself, "After X hours, I absolutely am finished with this project no matter what."
