Did you know that it’s possible to procrastinate on your homework by doing other homework?
That’s right, it is! Alternating between assignments and chipping away at all of them is one thing. However, whenever a student chronically neglects a pressing assignment in order to focus on others of less urgency, that student is procrastinating.
This specific form of procrastination can be especially insidious because often it involves lulling oneself into a false sense of security. We feel ourselves working and getting stuff done, but we are probably no closer to doing what really needs to get done.
That being said, I think I’ve done enough reading for one night. Time for me to start that essay!
