Procrastination is a huge issue in modern society. At a time where tasks are no longer imperative to survival, doing chores that may be wise to complete but in no way required is becoming less and less sought after. I don’t pretend to be above it all as, I too, put off schoolwork, chores, and mostly waking up for as long as I possibly can. Asking other students throughout the halls if they have finished assignments time and time again leads to the saying, “No LOL I’ll do it during CWP.” This procrastination is present in many students which often makes adults interpret them as lazy. But the question is… is it laziness or exhaustion?

On a day where I have track, I will likely not get home until 5 PM. I take out an hour for eating dinner and sometimes another hour for volunteer work. Starting my homework at 7 and trudging through AP Chem for 2 hours does a number on my brain, and oftentimes, all I want to do is lay down. If I know I have 30 minutes in CWP to finish up work, is it lazy to do Religion Gordon’s note-taking during that time?

Continuing with what I said before, even adults aren’t exempted from the I’ll-get-the-car-washed-another-day or the I’ll-clean-the-house-the-day-company-comes. In that sense, they are the same as kids, cramming for a test the night before. I think oftentimes adults just look for flaws in kids in order to nail them for something. It’s like when you see someone and you know they are up to something, but you can’t figure out what. So you call them out on something different and then slowly shift the conversation to figure out what they were up to.

In the end, what I’m trying to say in this article is that yeah sometimes it’s better to get things done early, but don’t bear down on your kids or others for doing things last minute. People are busy, and sometimes you just don’t have the mental energy to chug out an Omega article like this one. But as long as people get there stuff done, what’s the harm? Remember… Diamonds are made under pressure.
