Procrastination Sucks

It’s now the end of the winter semester and finals are here. This semester has been a mixed success. I have enjoyed getting to meet and talk to new people. Overall I have enjoyed my time here at college. However, one major lesson I have learned is to not procrastinate. College is fun and all and you basically have free reign to make your own decisions. However, those decisions don’t always result in the best outcome for you. For example, I put off the majority of my writing classwork and assignments. Mostly due to not having any idea of what to say for most of them. Regardless of the reason, this action has resulted in me having to write late into the night and early into the morning. This is something I take full reasonability because it was my choice to put off the work I knew I should be doing instead. A quote by William Shakespeare reads

“What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute’s mirth to wail a week?
Or sells eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy?
Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown,
Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?”

To me, this quote means to me that is getting the thing you wanted really worth it? For example is it worth to play games instead of doing your homework. Sure it might be more fun but looking at the long run it is not worth it at all. So learn from my example and don’t do what I did.
