14 Things That Are Only Relatable If You Love To Procrastinate

This is the year I'm going to make that Halloween costume I always talk about.

1. You have never met a TV or movie marathon that hasn't somehow dragged you away from the mountain of work you have to do.

2. More often than not, you fall so deep into your procrastination hole that you don't even know how you got there.

3. Usually, when you make a list of things you have to do, you think making the list counts as getting work done...so you reward yourself with some well-deserved relaxation.

4. You often make promises to yourself. And when you inevitably break those promises, you bargain with yourself: "OK, every page I read, I get a Skittle and five minutes of Instagram time."

5. Literally every Halloween you think *this* year will be the year that you change your ways and suddenly follow through on the totally awesome costume idea you have.

6. You have never met any quiz that you don't want to take...because it means you don't have to do what you're supposed to be doing.

7. The only times you like to clean or organize anything is when you have something else that needs to get done.

8. And it's also the time you start texting people, "what's up" when you know the last thing you should be doing is making plans.

9. The absolute worst feeling is when you're having a good time and trying to ignore your responsibilities, but you can't let go of the nagging weight of what you know you should be doing.

10. And then once you succumb to the pressure of your responsibilities, you look around in denial as if something is going to drop from the sky and get you out of this situation you dug yourself into.

11. Oh, and it honestly takes a really long time for you to pump yourself up to do whatever dreaded task is ahead of you.

12. Sure, there are definitely some days where you think you're going to change who you are at your core and start actually doing your work in a timely fashion...

13. ...but self-sabotage is basically your best friend.

14. Because, at the end of the day, you know who you are: a world-class procrastinator.
