Why I Learned to Procrastinate

When I first started college, I was amazing. I would get the syllabus and start plugging away through it. My goal would be to complete as much of the coursework as I could, as soon as I could. My school life was a fairy tale; it was a dream. That is, all was well until my teachers started raining on my parade. I kept running into teachers who would repeatedly change the requirements of the assignment. Not usually to make them harder but easier or to change the desired outcomes all together. In the end, I began to realize that it was counterproductive and in some cases a punishment to complete an assignment too early. So, you could say that school has taught me that it is best to wait until the due date is coming near to complete assignments. How sad is that?
