My Turn

Procrastination.


Ah, what a beautiful word for such an ugly habit. Take me for example. Megan is my real name, but my title is the Queen of Procrastination, a small city in the land of Avoidance. I am the defender of the faith of Why Do Today What You Can Put Off for the Entire Semester. I have millions of things to do instead of studying for, oh, I don't know, a mineralogy test. I can play solitaire (just one more win...okay, one more) or I can, let's say, type a column. But I don't want to be accused of being just one more bum in a whole generation of slackers. After all, my generation, contrary to popular belief, did not invent the word or concept of procrastination. Actually, Webster was probably avoiding his studies when he said to himself, "No won wyl thenk I em prokrasstinaitinge if I rite doun all th wirds in th inglish langwige." (Before him, spelling was more objective) Webster is the role model for all procrastinators. He got rich creating something important for all people. I wonder how much homework the first guy who wrote the encyclopedia had? He must have been a physics major.
