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.
 
10     "Right."
 
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.
