The last two weeks were really intense work wise, with tons of work and two client trips to NC. It might not have been such an insane two weeks if I had gotten more done earlier in February.
I readily admit it. I am totally a procrastinator at heart. Some things never change. I was a procrastinator in undergrad, in grad degree #1, in grad degree #2, and have been to a certain extent in all my jobs. I like to think it's gotten a bit better as I've aged (and theoretically matured), but I don't know that I can change my true nature.
Its like I need to feel the heat of the fire on my ass (i.e. its crunch time) and all of its associated stress (i.e. f*** me why did I put it off this long again... crap, am I going to complete it in time... shit, I will be getting no sleep and working nights and weekends) in order to be motivated and focused enough to power through something. Strangely enough, I kind of thrive off that stress. Until then I'm just putzing around. Sigh.
Anyways, I came across this hilarious article the other week that proposes 8 new and necessary punctuation marks. Hilarious. I should start using some. I'm sure that I could find a use for the superellipsis since I tend to overuse them (see Exhibit I: Previous paragraph of this post and Exhibit II: Pretty much every single blog post I've ever written).
