As you can tell by the time that I am posting this I know a thing or two about procrastination. I'm pretty sure all college students procrastinate at some point because the life of a college student is very crazy sometimes. One reason that procrastination is so much worse in college is that for some reason all teachers like to give you all of your work in the same week. Not only finals week but that random week in the middle of the semester when you have 3 tests and 4 papers due. If we did not procrastinate it would probably be a lot easier on us but than we would also have less friends and social experiences, which is essential when attending college so you can remain sane.
Something that I thought was really interesting in the book was that they talk about the positives and negatives of procrastination. Since it is a college level book I would assume that they would tell us that we should never procrastinate and they would list all of the negative effects but they actually go into detail about the positives and negatives of it. There was an experiment done in which they divided students into procrastinators and nonprocrastinators. They asked them throughout the semester how stressed they were and they recorded the results and put them in a graph on pg 177 of our book. It basically shows that procrastinating becomes more stressful the closer you get to the deadline. After seeing this I think that I am still going to continue to procrastinate because I would prefer to have all of my stress at once instead of being mildly stressed throughout the whole semester.
