I haven't finished the book yet. I quickly read a chapter this morning at 6:30 AM when I woke up although I'd stayed up until 1:30 AM to read for an hour before going to bed. I’m usually very excited when a new Harry Potter book comes out but this time I wasn’t so thrilled with the timing. I have a new project that requires a lot of my attention at work, my regular project still requires my attention, I’m in the middle of putting together a section of a group project, and finals are less then 2 weeks away. So my downtime to actually read and finish a 700+ page book is slim. I really thought about taking Monday off so I could finish the book but then thought about all the work I had waiting for me in the office and realized I couldn’t in good conscious do that. So I steal away some time and read a chapter here and there hoping that this weekend I will have a few hours of free time to finish the book.
I’m really in this predicament because I am the number 1 procrastinator, I procrastinate at every aspect of my life (except for time, I’m pretty punctual). I’m not sure why that is because I feel such a sense of satisfaction when I actually get things done immediately. Why am I not continually striving for that constant sense of satisfaction by getting things done? I sometimes have this constant feeling of dread because of all the things that are on the constant “to do list” that I just put off because of the time it would take to get it done. I’ve been browsing the Internet looking for some self help tips and hopefully I can get it under control. I even procrastinated with this post and have been thinking of updating the blog for about a week now.
