My Procrastination Takes Place Essay

Improved Essays
Everyone in the world procrastinates about something; whether it be washing dishes, doing homework, or getting dressed for work or school.

One time I cooked dinner, and my mom told me to clean as I cooked which I did for the most part.

In the Article, the dishwashing scenario relates to my life because I did not want to do the dishes, so I put it off until someone else did them. Another example is that I always wait until the last minute to do my homework. When a teacher assigns homework, I always say I will do it right when I get home, but that never really happens. Take this essay as an example of pushing back homework. I received this assignment on a Tuesday and it is now Sunday, the day before it’s due, so that goes to show that I do not do homework right when it’s assigned. This affects my future self because I must spend all day doing an assignment that I could have worked one days ago, and it might not be as great as it could be, if I had started on it days ago. Every day when I wake up, I never want to get ready for school or work. I will always snooze the alarm as late as I can, and when I do wake up I sit around doing nothing. When it’s finally time to get ready I will walk slow and slowly get dressed, until I must run out the house before I am late. This could

    Unfortunately, perfection is not attainable and it has been something I have struggled with my entire life in my classes and in work. In school, no grade less than an A was acceptable.
