feeling so incompetent at the moment

Have you ever gotten into a circle of procrastination before? When you start to procrastinate and then it turns into more and more procrastination and at some point you even stop feeling bad about it and just accept it. And that feeling of acceptance allows you to procrastinate more. Well, I've gotten myself into a bit of that over the last few days. (Note to parents and those who worry about me: I'm fine. This is normal. I'm a student, this is what we do and we know how to get through it.) So now I've got a lot of writing to do and a lot of coffee to drink in the meantime. Lucky for me, the weather decided to be grey and forboding today, discouraging my feelings of running away into a field.

And just another note to the world: Norwegian's ankles don't get too warm when they are wearing tall socks in spring. I know this from a real Norwegian woman (see Tink's Think Tank).


Tellurium said... find out what this meant I had to go deeeeep into my dictionary. According to which procrastiation is: "to put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness".

And YES, this is something students do all the time.... Exams are getting closer by the minute...
