    Pretty much what the title says. Post here whenever you're procrastinating doing something important.

    Me? Oh, no. I'm not procrastinating right now. Definitely not. I'm definitely not spamming OPF with low quality content to avoid doing work. I never procrastinate. N-E-V-E-R. And you guys shouldn't, either. Take that as advice from your new man in black. Procrastination doesn't lead anywhere good. In fact, it usually leads somewhere bad. If I could have a superpower, it'd be the ability to never procrastinate. Oh wait, I already have it because I have never once procrastinated. The other superpower I'd pick is to never have to eat or sleep. You know how much time that wastes? A lot. Like, people like to be all quirky and say "oh I love food and naps lol", but really that's just code for "I have no personality and like to waste time". That's a hard left swipe from me, Big Marky P. Time efficiency is what gets me up in the morning, and what stops me from sleeping at night. Anyway. You lazy bum. Stop procrastinating, get off OPF and get that beautiful mind of yours to work!

    I’m totally not procrastinating (anymore). In fact, I’m only still on OPF because I’m pre-heating the bathroom so that I can shower and move forward with the day’s activities. That’s the ticket. I need to be able to do a fitting so that I can finish sewing. Then do other cosplay niceties. So there. I won’t get caught up in these other threads and forget about the heater until goddess knows how long has passed. Nope. Not me.

    Yay! Somewhere to hang out when I'm writing fanfiction! (Though right now I'm in class so I won't be able to write fanfiction anyway).

    Oh wow. I used to call myself the procrastination queen - how I loathe and cringe at myself..

    I mean, I am a full-grown adult now. I don't procrastinate anymore. I mean 2 hours of lurking in OPF not posting on a single thread and just reading everyone else's posts - that's not procrastinating, that's me being smart. Sure, I have Korean class tonight and I should go study cause I suck but - that's at 7PM. I only have to go to the train station at 5PM, which means I have to be ready by 4PM- to catch the bus, which means I should take a shower at 3PM. It's only 1PM right now. I have enough time to study. Yep.

    I mean, I can take information fast. I'll be fine. Surely. I mean, there is no test today. At least. So what if I missed the last two classes? Yeah.

    Disclaimer: To all children below 18, please do not become an adult like me.

    I should really close discord so I can write this one-shot without checking back every 5 seconds to see what messages someone just sent (right now a server I'm in is busy doing a roleplay in their roleplay channel and although I'm not participating I can't help but check back so I can get the red thing in the Discord desktop tab icon to go away). But at the same time I really don't want to skim through a hundred messages later. Then again, I have a deadline for this one-shot because it's for their birthday.
    Also, as a side note, why the hell did I decide to start writing a birthday one-shot less than two weeks before this character's birthday? Writing usually takes forever for me because of the procrastination thing yet I decide to do this. Maybe I'll just mute that channel since I'm not participating and only skim the last few messages.
    Now I can safely get back to writing (unless I find another reason to not do so).

    I am now looking for another job but first, let me just organize all the bookmarks in my browser. I'd like to put them all in different folders and maybe arrange them alphabetically or something? What else is there to do?

    Suppose to send my report as a time keeper, but there's more time for that. Amma do it later instead.

    EROR. Already became one like you.

    Like studying for PSATs?

    I’m supposed to be doing my morning meditation since the boy is out the door now but I’m still on the forum because I was here and it’s interesting—alerts were coming through plus I realized the number of watched threads that hadn’t alerted me so—down the rabbit hole I fell.

    Nah, that's already come and gone (draining my soul in the process). I was talking about a one shot. I could also stand to finish that thing for a cosplay.

    OHH a cosplay. Totally speaking my language now! I basically came up with and created a cosplay that I don’t need until November 7th when I should’ve been doing OP tournament battle strategy. There was other stuff distracting me but I had creative brain that wouldn’t quit. *shrug* Go be creative! ^_^

    PS. sorry I can’t relate to the PSAT problems. I never took them.

    I swear, all of y'all adults like flexing your lack of soul crushing exams on us. Not that I blame you.

    No, the flex is that I didn’t take them because I took the SATs in 6th grade so the PSATs were moot.

    It's okay, in exchange our every day life is pretty soul crushing as it is.

    The fuck? Are you okay? No child that young should be exposed to that crap (forget not knowing what the fuck a constant is, I'm pretty sure you don't learn any Algebra stuff until at least 7th grade).

    Umm I took advanced math at an early age—I was part of a pilot program testing out a new series of books. You don’t wanna know why I took them then... okay here’s the deal. There is/was a program where they (Duke University) had kids across the country take the SATs and then if you scored high enough, you got to come take college courses on their campus for three weeks over the summer. (6 hours one class, maybe it was a separate class after lunch, it’s been years—3 hours in the AM 1 hour for lunch, 3 hours in the PM). I took the test again in 9th and 10th grade and didn’t bother anymore I think. I wish I was as smart as I used to be. Health issues have impacted my processing ability so I’m not that swift anymore. *shrug* I am who I am. I respect those who know how to study and work hard for things.

    This is not untrue in many ways.
