    So I have a senior thesis due. I actually took the course titled "Senior seminar" during last year's spring Semester (Jan-Jun '05) Everyone that was a senior has already graduated, and recieved their diploma. I walked with everyone at the graduation commencement ceremony. And yet... I have this freaking paper that was due in May.

    Currently my grade for the senior seminar is an incomplete. I have until the next semester begins before the grade becomes an "F" and I have to pay for the course all over again. I am currently jobless and without a diploma in hand, am planning to go to grad school. My Dad thinks that I am done with undergrad and that I have my degree.

    Right now, I have the books for the Paper, but I haven't actually begun writing anything.

    Putting things off is a theme in my life: I haven't washed my car in 2 years.
    I have a broken rear tail light I've been meaning to fix for a year and a half.
    I have a load of dress pants I've been meaning to take to the dry cleaner for 4 months.

    The list goes on.

    I invite all procrastinators to do their best to trump my masterful game of post-poning life's events.

    Bring it on.

    I didnt ask this girl out for 6 years, never did and I never saw her again.

    I did my entire Senior and Junior papers 1 day before they were due and I got 2 A's. How did I get 2 A's? Well im just good like that.

    Ive been meaning to replay FF7 over again, even though its a great game, I just havent come around to it.

    Last year of highschool, I had my final paper due in December. I wrote it on the last day before the exams which was uhm... halfway June. I passed though.

    I was suppose to get a job and found a nice place to work, but I had to hand in my resume. Handed it in 3 months later...of course the job was already taken xD

    You can't be a procrastinator, you started this thread in the A.M.! No real procrastinator wakes up before 1pm. ;-)

    I once read a book, and wrote a 15 page essay the day before it was due. The book was Joseph Andrews (the satrical comeback to the 18th century novel Pamela Andrews), and it wasn't a short read either. When I told the teacher what I did, after he gave me an A ofcourse, he started laughing and was a little disapointed and proud at the same time :_

    I've been meaning to ask a certain girl out for 2 years, I'm missing 50% of the assignments in my Biology class 'cause I never got around to doing them. My first huge repot I did in seventh grade. We had the whole year to create a huge science experiment thing, I didn't research anything till the day before it was due and I ended up with a B. I'd say that last one was the best one I ever did.​

    Hmm, usually I don't finish my games even though I can at anytime and I always do my homework the minute before it's due.


    >_> And I always get good grades. Pathetic.

    Misery loves company.

    My paper was due at 4pm today and I just started. (I want to stab myself.) Never started a major paper earlier than the night before. Never studied without cramming with an all-nighter. And I'm ALWAYS screwed when it comes to finals because we have self-scheduled exams so I tend to take all of them on the last day possible. But not this year!! I swear.

    lol, i think i'm the biggest procrastinator!:nuts


    I have like 15 RPG games that i bought and i still haven't play them, and i tell myself everyday, that i would start the next day playing, and never do. To busy thinking how many hours would be spent and when the next game comes out.

    If i have a project due in a week, i get myself pumped saying how i'm going to organized my time and how i'm going to ace my presentation. I spent 6 days repeating that to myself, until i get a reality check in the night before the presentation.


    Thanks god i ace them or i would be in deep shit.


    I tell myself, i will read all the books that i bought during the summer vacation and then when the vacation come to an end, i remember that i wasn't able to read none of those books.

    I don't know about extreme, but all of my college work are finished an hour before class starts. The other hour for traveling. Best of all, it always gets about A-C range. Once I had a Geography essay 3 hours before class which I had totally forgotten. Everyone was saying how they worked days for it. Finished it up in that 3 hours. I was the highest in the class with an A+ LOL.

    Another is guitar. I told myself that I will learn to play a guitar. Bought the guitar. But I was just too lazy to go buy the amp. It was only about 3 years later, today, I bought an amp, and learned to play the guitar.

    And just today. I'm supposed to have my medical checkup 6 months ago, or I couldn't signup for next semester. I've just made an appointment today, and they were saying like it was supposed to be due the first week of 6 months ago.
