Make it work


I am staring down the business end of my ‘thesis’ year end project and procrastinating myself into a hole. I made a really awesome colour coordinated list and calendar chart to keep myself on track. Today is day 2 of the last 10 days left to complete this odyssey. I’m hoping after this last bit of putting it off, that I will finish my tasks for today. It’s not too daunting day by day, but when things pile up, it is scary beyond belief.

I keep thinking that saying ‘I’m wasting time’ out loud will make me work harder.

I am very scared to have the finished products shown to family, friends, classmates and professionals… I just don’t want it to be shit!


Should get back to work now.

Ps. Thanks for listening to my personal pep-talk. Here’s a picture! (postcard by me)

  1. Ha! Thanks!

    I definitely turned my internet access off and did some work… until I gave in right now. Ah, I’ll turn it back off now. Thanks dudes!

  2. this is EXACTLY why i’m so freaked out about my own thesis (and the harddrive crash sitch) thanks for putting this out there.. it totally resonated with me. good luck!

  3. I know exactly where you’re coming from, stressful days, these are. It’s funny – I do the same thing in regards to making pretty to-do lists and calendars in the hopes that it will help me keep myself organized, but I think a lot of the time it’s more of a procrastination method in and of itself. Oh well. Can’t wait to see your work! (And I know what you means about exposing our work to the world… it adds a whole new element of scariness to the project)
