I like this daylight savings time thing.

No matter how hard I try not to, I always procrastinate doing anything unpleasant until the last minute. I always get it done, just at the last minute. I try to start things earlier, but my subconscious doesn't let me. At the beginning of the school year, I got up about an hour before I needed to leave. But then I learned I only need 15-20 minutes to get ready, so I hit the snooze button again and again until 15-20 minutes before I have to leave, at which point I leap out of bed with a "damn it". I come home from class at 3pm intent on starting this 4-5 page paper that's due tomorrow. I try, but I don't know how to begin, so I procrastinate. A couple hours later, I think "shit.. I really need to do this" and so I begin. Normally, for a 4-5 page paper, I'd begin 8-9pm since I'm an insomniac anyway. BUT today, I started at like 6pm. I was so proud of myself. And here it is, almost 10 and I'm almost done. I think it had something to do with daylight savings time. It got dark SO fucking early tonight that my subconscious let me start earlier than I would have.

I hate when this happens: I'll wake up, snooze my alarm, and lay back down for a minute before getting up. I get up, start getting ready, then when I'm almost done, my alarm goes off again and I wake up. Damn it, it was just a dream and now I have to get ready ALL OVER again with less time to do it in.

(Yes this is another attempt at procrastinating finishing the paper. I take breaks when I get stumped.)
