Stop

There’s something to be said for procrastination. Yeah, it makes you put off your work and causes you to panic at the last minute, but the work still gets done, and you still have fun beforehand.

I have the opposite problem. I can’t relax if I have work to do. Everything needs to be done before I am content. It’s Monday right now, and I’ve already finished all my homework for the week. That may sound good to you, but it isn’t. The only reason it’s done is because if I didn’t do it it would loom over me until I finished it, like a black cloud of my own laziness. It’s terrifyingly stressful.

I pull all-nighters to get my work done. 8 days before the work is due. I need to stop but I can’t. I have to get it done.

Help.
