Have you ever heard of snow falling in July? Maybe in the really cold regions of the world, but not here in the USA, at least that I know of. However, I’ve accomplished something that I never thought I would accomplish and therefore, it will snow. You all remember reading my ‘Not in 2012’ post don’t you? If not, let me jog your memory a bit. This post consisted of a list of things that happened back in 2011 that I did NOT want to repeat in 2012. On my last update ‘Looking Back at Not in 2012’ I had managed to accomplish avoiding and improving on some of the things that I had listed; however, there were many I had not. I want to take a moment to look at one item in particular: #5 Procrastinate Much?
This week I have had the pleasure of having to take my first summer course. I’m now three days in (only two to go, woo-hoo!) and so far everything is going really well. There is one problem, however, especially for a procrastinator like me—we have an assignment due every day of class. That means the Procrastinating Queen has a choice: do the assignment the night before or wake up early to do the work in the morning.
Day one, I did half of the assignment the night before and the rest of the assignment the morning before I had to leave. That was a bit of an improvement for me, right? I split it up so I did not have to rush to do everything in the morning, I think that’s progress! But this evening, well yesterday evening by the time you read this, I did the unthinkable. I broke my bad habit and I actually completed my homework assignment before my head hit the pillow. The question is, of course, can I keep it up? If I can, you can expect to see some snow, wherever you may be.Photo Credit: Ayla87
