Don't Put It Off!
By Beth Beutler
1 Since it was near the beginning of the school year, our teacher, Mrs. Carmichael, decided to have us celebrate "Do it! Fight Procrastination Day." It fell on September 3rd.
2 "Class, can anyone explain what procrastination is?"
3 "It's when you choose to do something fun instead of something necessary," said Wayne.
4 "Good, Wayne. You are on the right track. Anyone else?"
5 "It's when you have a habit of putting off doing a task," Marla answered.
6 "That's right," Mrs. Carmichael responded. "Does procrastination feel good?"
7 "Sure," Blake offered. "Then you get to do only the fun stuff!" The class chuckled.
8 Mrs. Carmichael smiled. "Okay, let's say that is true. What happens when what you have neglected comes due?"
9 "Like a school paper?" Susan asked.
11 "Well, you either end up working all night and doing a poor job, or you feel very stressed, or you get a poor grade because you turned it in late," Susan answered.
