Preemptive Procrastination:

If I do the fifteen online quizzes today, which are all of the remaining ones for the quarter, I won't have to do them later and can be lazy and chill when everyone else is stressing in Nov/Dec.

If I do the project now by myself, I don't have to deal with a group later.

If I apply for the scholarship now, I won't have to worry about the due date.

Moral of story: it SEEMS like I'm super productive because I get shit done way in advance, but SECRETLY?


Be told!

I should print this out and leave it on my wall. Or screen cap it and make it my wallpaper on my laptop (schoolwork) and desktop (schoolwork but mostly goofing off). Hah!

What's your success rate at applying for scholarships? Though there seem to be more scholarships for people in the medical fields than people who want to think about photography. Oh well!

Interestingly, I find the opposite to be true:

Many arts scholarships, few for nursing, even fewer for men.

And the ones I find to apply for a VERY narrowly tailored: one big one I couldn't apply to ruled out ER Nurse as an approved specialty!

I think it's more about crafting a compelling essay that overcomes our White Maleness. (It's hard to beg for money from a position of perceived privilege!) But the big one I got for this year was one of 135 given out in various categories, but at the award ceremony, I was clearly in the extreme minority: I WAS TALL. *grin*

But all kidding aside, I spent the last year getting all my pre-requisites and co-requisites done, and if I had $5 for every assignment I did early out of proactive laziness, I wouldn't need a scholarship. Truefact!

There is such joy in knowing that all this productivity is all in the service of abject and utter sloth.

Have you read it? It's one of the stories told by Lazarus Long in Time Enough for Love. It's actually pretty good.

I haven't read Heinlein in ages, gotta go find that!

Don't remember it at ALL!

As my dad used to say, "the lazy person's way to do something is to do it right the first time" - that way, you avoid the re-doing.

That's a good one!

Another one an old boss used to say that was spot-on:

"If you're not ten minutes early, you're twenty minutes late."

There is nothing better than reading your classmates' fb updates about how much work they have to do, omg so busy before it's all due on Monday!

And I've already done it!

An investment in future procrastination?

I think I need to take lessons from you.

Date: 2010-10-24 06:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
It all stems from my realization that at my very core, I just don't want to work that hard.

So I work hard to avoid it.

Seems counter-intuitive, but it works!

That's a nice overview of your course. But I still think I need private lessons. (This is a thinly veiled request for additional excuses to visit you guys when I'm in Seattle!!)

No excuse necessary!

We're rolling out the red carpet for you!

Giggle! Well, that's something to look forward to, then!!

You guys are still living in the Bucephalabode, aren't you?

We have the Second Floor of the Bucephalabode!

It's awesome because Scott's a doll, but also because I walk to Nursing school!

He doesn't have another rentable room that might be available for three weeks in May, does he??? ;-)

As a matter of fact... we do have an extra room!

I'll check with him and see what's what!
