I don’t wanna do my work! [stomps feet] And you can’t make me!!
I have forbidden myself from watching any clips from Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report or I-Film until I’ve finished revising my lit review chapter. You’d think that the looming deadline of needing to have the whole thesis revised by May 19 would be motivation enough to keep working, but I’ve had to resort such punitive action to keep myself from procrastinating*.
Plus, it’s sunny out. And a balmy 16 degrees! I’d much rather be outside doing… well, pretty much anything other than sitting in my dank, mouldy basement apartment doing thesis revisions. Boo!
OK, I’ll go back to work now. But I’m not happy about it.
*Writing this posting, of course, is not procrastinating. You’re procrastinating.
