Victory is mine!!! I drink from the keg of glory!!! Bring me the finest bagles in all the land!*
…Or rather, get me bagles later. Because it’s almost three in the morning and the mere thought of food just made me nauseous.
But I have accomplished my mission and kept that deadline. And it only took me until now.
Because I’m a Stupid Procrastinator who will apparently never, ever learn.
Because I’m a Stupid Procrastinator who will react to an e-mail stating „You have 3 weeks from today to do X“ with 1 week’s worth of agonizing over whether or not she is even willing to do X and being generally weltschmerz-y, followed by a week of „taking time off because I fucking deserve it even if I don’t really, but I want to, so there!!!“, followed by (almost) another week’s worth of agonizing over what shape X will take and whether she is even capable of doing X.
Because I’m a Stupid Procrastinator whose reaction to the realization of „OMG THE DEADLINE IS TOMORROW AND I’M SO SCREWED OMG!!!“ was to watch three episodes of Torchwood, go out for a coffee, go to work, come back, make dinner, eat dinner, watch Law&Order, watch CSI, and read 100+ items from my RSS-feed.
Because I’m a Stupid Procrastinator, as in not merely a professional Procrastinator, but also a FUCKING stupid one.**
But, I did it.
And now the questions in my life are as follows:
Do I sit down and brush up on my Latin grammar because I have two Matura-level tutees tomorrow and can’t remember what an ACI is?
Or do I *finally* write those Blogposts that are overdue already? (The promised ones and the ones I thought I should write because there’s stuff I’d like to rant about)
Or do I watch more Torchwood?
Guess what I’m going to do? Yeah. More Torchwood.
You know why? Because I’m a Stupid Procrastinator. That’s why.***
* Because no-one does moments of triumph better than Josh Lyman, the dominator of congressional sub-committees. And those of you who don’t get that reference have clearly not spent enough time with me ^_^
** Who apparently overdosed on a heady cocktail of caffeine and self-loathing, washed down with a chaser of hysteria.
