It turns out that the year above us said that they’d like more assessment in their yearly review…
Guess who already has a essay that counts towards their yearly grade?
Guess who has to submit that essay by 10am tomorrow morning?
Guess who’s writing this post to avoid finishing said essay?
I’ll give you a clue, the answer’s me.
If you asked me what is the one single thing I am best at in the world, my answer would be procrastination.
I honestly do have some kind of deep rooted fear of deadlines. I get so worked up and anxious that I feel sick and literally can’t do any work. I hate tests more than anything. Once the deadline has passed, I’m quite happy to tap away and finish the work…
In fact I’ve just started reading the Odyssey two weeks after it was set…it’s quite good actually…
…I told you I was nuts.
My fear of deadlines is so bad that I literally revised the night before every one of my GCSEs, AS levels and A levels…my English Lit A level I revised for on the day of the exam!
I think I may have found a solution to my predicament…LIE.
I need people to legitimately convince me that my deadlines are a week earlier than they actually are, so that after I’ve had a mild heart attack trying to finish the work 2 minutes before the deadline, I can heave a sigh of relief and finesse it over the next seven days…
I know, I know, I’m far to clever, I’d see straight through the lies.
I also have a strong aversion to re-reading anything that I write. You’d literally have to handcuff me to a chair and put me in a headlock to force me to re-read this post before I publish it…or any of my essays…
Please don’t read too closely…there will be spelling mistakes.
As the sensai of procrastination, I thought I’d give you a few examples of how to procrastinate…
These are just what I’ve done today:
- Buy strawberry laces, plait them then eat them.
- Give yourself a strawberry laces mustache.
- Practice speaking in an Australian and American accent.
- Make tea.
- Play The Sims Freeplay.
- Watch New Girl or [insert any other humorous 20 minute American sitcom here].
- Make oatmeal cookies.
- Snapchat your best friend.
- Make tacos.
- Eat tacos.
- Spin around on chair.
- Read books other than your set texts.
Well now you know what my day consisted of…what have you been up to?
