It hasn't been a week, but this section is empty. Don't forget you can submit your own poll ideas, which would be neat if we got a bunch.

Anyway:

Which procrastination monster is most effective against you, and why?

I end up surfing the web when I should be writing or doing homework or something else... sometimes I wish I didn't have internet access for the sake of productivity. I'm considering buying some nicotine patches to curb the addiction...

But you know, I've realized, I don't really go to very many sites... I go to my school's website, this message board, one other message board, I check my e-mail, and Facebook. I just go to them repeatedly... checking if anything has changed... in the 3 minutes I wasn't looking at it.

Same, Nick. I found that going to class/the library with my laptop and leaving my power cord back at the dorm is a help. It lets me have some time on the net, but other than that I have to do homework and read in the time between classes.

I'm living at home this semester, so I can't really do that now, but next semester when I move into my dorm I'll do that, but I still fear that the urge will be too great.

I can't decide between Internet and reading. With the Internet, I can just turn off the wireless, but with reading, I MUST FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS .... so ....

I haven't voted yet.

On the plus side, since it's NaNo, I've been procrastinating from writing my novel by doing my homework. o.O It's very odd.

The Net. That's the major reason why I never got anywhere with NaNo.

That's foolishness! NaNo is more important than an education. Actually, it's funny, because you could procrastinate either one with the other. I guess it depends on which one you want to do more.
