I'm only permitting myself water and tea until I finish writing at least 1,200 words of my history essay. It's nearly 8:20 p.m. and I haven't eaten dinner yet.*

The key to my heart is through my stomach. And since my heart just isn't into this whole essay writing nonsense, I've always decided that the key to ending procrastination is denying myself sustinence.

I'll let you all know how it works out. I'm at 791 words.

And I'm hungry.

*Although, let it be known, that in a moment of confusion and frustration about my workload, I did eat an ice cream sandwich about 2 hours ago, because it was the only concrete decisive action I felt capable of making at that given moment in time.


  1. This is pretty much the worst idea ever. Sure, you might be more productive - or maybe gluttonous and time-wasting binges are the only thing that keeps us procrastinators from throwing ourselves off of cliffs in the final hours. EAT. And then eat again. Then do some brainstorming. Then reward yourself for brainstorming by eating.

  2. I think it's a pretty great idea except that your brain will probably function terribly with no food in it. Maybe you should add fruit to your tea and water diet. Or maybe you should just boycott blogging until you make serious progress on your homework.
