Procrastination queen strikes again! It’s nearly 11 pm, and I got out of class about an hour ago. My hands are covered in charcoal, I have class at 9am, and two incomplete projects due for it — my rhythm and repetition project I’ve posted about previously, as well as a collage set I was supposed to turn in last week. I’m currently slacking off on the couch making friends with the wonderful invention known as “Netflix”.
The collage project is to create six “puzzle piece” type compositions using two high-contrast colors, as well as black and white. Fortunately, I finished five out of six of them the last time I was in class and have the majority of the pieces already cut out; it’s mostly just a question of arranging it and gluing it all down. However, I could also be sitting on my butt on the couch watching Heroes and stuffing my face with pumpkin pie, because that also sounds like a grand idea.
Weirdly enough, I’ve never been able to get work done unless I’ve done a few hours or days or weeks of procrastination. Give me a month to write a paper, I’ll write the whole thing in three hours the morning it’s due. Give me three hours to get something done, I’ll wait until the last half an hour. It all depends on the amount of work there is to be done, and I’ve always been the type to work better under pressure than if there is no real “incentive” to do it just then, so to speak.
Enough of the being a slackass, though, for I desire pumpkin pie as well as finish these projects so I can get some amazing sleep.
