Saturday Confessions: The Importance of Procrastination

I procrastinate like it’s my job. I will be watching an episode of “Friends” when I should be working on a blog post, and will be Googling trivialities on “Robert Downey Jr” when I should be replying to emails.  I will be Youtubing when I am supposed to be doing the dishes, and will be doing the dishes when I am supposed to be cleaning the apartment, but seldom will I be found doing the thing that I actually should be doing. 

“Why such irrational behavior, why?” I ask myself dramatically. And this is funky, I actually come up with a poem to glorify my lazy deeds. Well now that I have written the poem, I might as well share it with you guys. Haina?


I don’t delay,
I just wait for the best time to say,
and do what needs to be done.
And in the sweet taste of waiting,
you start appreciating,
the value of me and this work burden.
What good is something done,
that goes praised and seen by none,
timeliness only brings weariness and sorrow.
In my experience of doing it later,
I've hardly felt anything better,
than the exaltation of doing it tomorrow.

So the next time your mother hassles you for not doing anything on time,
I give you the authority to quote this fantastic poem of mine.
(I am on a rhyming spree, somebody please stop me!)
