Attention Community Based Master's Students

I know many of us are feeling the strain of work, a new class (for me EC&I 831), and an action research project that is due this spring. I have this nagging voice in my brain telling me, "You gotta get going!" I am hard on myself, but I feel like I'm procrastinating. Well I decided to check procrastinating out on Youtube just to see what I could find; and I found this beautiful little clip that I now use when talking to students who delay getting to their responsibilities. It's a good laugh I hope you enjoy it.

LOL; I am an your blog because I should check my twitter before I get my work done because I needed to get some ideas for my student blogs before I get my work done...

Thanks for sharing...

So this is why I haven't "got my stuff done". I love this video, Stephen. It captures the essence of procrastination. Now, about that oil for my squeaky chair...

Hi, Stephen, this is perfect! I am procrastinating about working on a paper for Val's class, and decided to check your blog, and what did I find but a video about procrastination. I was going to write a book about procrastination - figured that was the ultimate procrastination technique, but I never got around to it!
