SOCSunday: Procrastination

Undoubtedly I should be asleep right now.  It's 2:49 a.m. But I'm not alas and I'm excited to actually be posting. Right now I'm in the stages of deciding whether to completely move to blogger or stay with  I'm unsure as of yet.  (Post can be found at both places: and - what do you think?)

Anyway, I'm bad about self-sabotage.  My nemesis is procrastination. I will wait to there is almost no last minute.  Whether it's planning meals, or waiting until after it's time to close my mailbox to forward incoming mail, or still not having written the first line on my doctorate school application.  I have a getting started defect apparently.  I have students test in my bag that I need to grade.  I've been meaning to do my "weekly" mask now for two weeks. Good thing, I have it on right now.  Has to stay on five minutes. Lucky.

So, today, I've decided to grade the papers, and start the application. I'm sure the advisor is wondering what my issue is... Well, he can join the club, I wonder too sometimes.

This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes only.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
  • Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post.
  • Link up your post at .
  • Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.


  1. I saw either move to Wordpress self hosted or stick with Blogger. I think Blogger has made a lot of strides in design and functionality. And it's super easy to use. But Wordpress self hosted offers a lot more possibilities.

  2. Although I have my domain on Blogger at the moment, I sometimes miss Wordpress. They do have some rules, though, so I'd check into that unless you plan to do the self-hosted.

  3. Wordpress. I'm trying to move to self-hosted, but I'm frightened I'll break my blog.

  4. I moved from Blogger to and it makes me cry!

  5. Hi! Popping in from SOCS. I've been wondering whether to move to wordpress or stay with blogger. I have to say, I like some of the improvements that blogger has made. I think I'm gonna stick. Good luck in what you decide!

  6. I used to have an issue with procrastination because I felt overwhelmed by the amount I had due. I found once I wrote everything on a calendar on the fridge and the dates they were due, it helped me prioritize and then I knew what I had to accomplish each day and what I would let slide until the next day. Then I accomplish something each day and don't feel like I've procrastinated... too much! ;)

  7. Procrastination:I am the queen bee! lol Hope you get all your stuff done!

  8. I think I invented procrastination. You must be like me and that's why you don't mind the 5 minute brain dump. Just post and go!
