Whenever I have an assignment due, even my friends become nervous for me because they know what it entails. I tell even the closest of all my friends that I complete my papers on time, because I am all too familiar with the disappointment and disbelief reinforced when they find out I have done this late yet another time. Procrastination seems to generally be associated with things such as laziness, bad habits, lack of responsibility, etc. College students are famous for it. While some do it more often than others, there is no one who is not guilty of it every now and then. And why not? Who would really rather write a research paper over some other immediately enjoyable activity? But when looked at more deeply, procrastination can become a problem for some, and even begin to interfere with one’s normal functioning. It is even connected with other things such as depression and anxiety. Exploring my issues concerning procrastination with the help of various sociological theories, I come to realize where they may have stemmed from and why I might behave in such ways. With this knowledge, I hope to be able to change this everpresent factor in my life.
