the secret life of a habitual procrastinator

I have a ten page report due on Friday- MLA style. (Did your ears just close up in protest?) Needless to say, I'm procrastinating. At this moment in time I could be doing something much more productive, but no...I'm writing a blog post instead of my paper. Do you see where my priorities lie? Some day in the future, life will be grand. I will have no more MLA papers to work on and I'll finally have that degree I'm only seven classes away from. I will have all the time in the world for writing and posting on this blog....sigh.

I watched that show "The Lottery Changed my Life" earlier this evening (more attempts at procrastination) and they did a segment on this woman who wrote down the number "112 million" on a piece of paper, folded it up and slipped it under her pillow. She won the California lotto at exactly 112 million. She believes she manifested the money. Tonight I think I will write down on a piece of paper "Formal paper due date extended until next week"...hmm....I suppose this cycle would simply start over again come next week though. So scratch that. I will write "Formal paper canceled. Only counts for extra credit". That would be awesome. Then I could focus on writing the sequel to Wanderlove. Anyway, I'll keep you guys posted and let you know how the paper thing works...;)

In other news, I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and loooooved it. Michelle Hodkin is simply ahhmazing. I do not have enough words to express how much I enjoyed this book! Easily, I could say it has been the best book I've read this year. One reason: Noah Shaw. And you will love him too, so go pick up this read asap!

  1. I am a major procrastinator too! I like your idea of putting it on paper that the paper no longer counts. Good luck with that! Oddly, I find I usually do better on things when i wait to the last minute- maybe the stress motivates me?

    Love the cover of the book and from your review- it sounds fabulous!

    I found you through Book Blogs and signed up to follow you. When you have a chance- please stop by and follow the blog for my middle grade novel that I am hoping to get published.

    Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out how to fix it. :)
