It's Chatting by E-Mail, Phone, or Instant Messaging for me Whenever I have homework I try to to do it while IMing but usually it doesn't work out that great(yes, I know very shocking!).
PM for critiques and help? Yes, you may.

What is NaNo? The word-count thing? O.o

Okay, why was I here... Right. I procrastinate because of MSN, Quizilla, Friendster, VF, mini-games... Anything to do with the computer. As long as I'm sitting in front of the screen doing SOMETHING with it, I'm fine.

The thing is, I don't do homework with the computer.

Another thing. I predict that I'm not going to finish my story/novel as quickly as I predicted last week, because I joined YWO. I've bookmarked a few stories here... T_T Uhoh.

But hey, who knows? My prediction could be wrong. Again.
yes, mum! *kicks homework under the bed*

life's so nice to me.

I have this problem were I just can't stick to things, especially with writing.

The internet is mine, I click on one link, then it just gets out of control.

Yeah, procrastination. That's the biggest problem with me.

Surfing the procrastination drug. I'm trying to break the habbit, though.

You should have been able to pick like three choices... I'm the Queen of Procrastination!

Ah. I put everything off, including SLEEP. Yeah, around 11 o' clock at night the light will click on and you'll hear me fumbling around in the dark for my COMPUTER, BOOK, or NOTEBOOK. (Okay, I had some fun with colour there.) If I'm reading a really good book, I'll even put off eating for a while. Not completely, but instead of eating at the dinner table, I'll read. My parents actually confiscate my books, internet, gameboy, ipod, and cell when I need to do homework or chores. EVIL!!

There should be an 'all of the above' option, along with the 'none of the above'.
