    Procrastination is an amazing thing.

    Just this morning, I woke up and thought it was about time to get some books out and do some much needed revision. This idea remained in my head until I stretched my arms out in my bed and happened to clatter my old Gameboy. I picked it up and looked at what cartridge it had inside and raised a little smile when I saw that it was Tetris. I looked up at my clock and, because it was still only 10:50, thought I'd have a go... just one.

    Half an hour, six go's and a high score of 238,768 later, I set the Gameboy down and had another, much deserved, stretch. Time for a shower I thought, and then I'll definitely do some work. Another half and hour later and with all the hot water used, I got changed and toddled downstairs. I sat down on the sofa and quickly realised that I'd left my pencil case and required notes upstairs. Blast, I thought, and was just about to mosey back upstairs to fetch them when hunger crept into my mind.

    Another half an hour, four hot-cross buns, a cup of tea and most of a crossword later, I took out my empty plate to the kitchen and realised that all that eating had made me a bit tired. A quick five minutes in front of the TV should cure that, I thought, so I switched on ITV1...

    An hour and an episode of Columbo later, I was nice and refreshed and could now start the revision. Blast, I thought again, I needed to check my Durham Emails to find out the new homework questions. So, I turned on the computer, fired-up IMP webmail and jotted down what I had to do. I could now really make a start, I was adequately fed, watered and rested. I was just about to turn off the computer when I thought that it would probably be best to check my bank account balance while I was still online...

    Another hour, three Facebook messages, a game of Microsoft Pinball and a Google search for "Why is a monkey puzzle tree called a monkey puzzle tree?" later, I'm still sat here, writing this account of my day...

    ... Exam failures are quite likely.

    I just can't get up early if I don't need to be up early. It's SO annoying, and why I wish I had more 9am/10am lectures, at least then I'd be up and ready nice and early, rather than getting up at 11am and taking 2hrs to get ready then realise half of the day has already gone

    One reason why I love rowing & coaching rowing, it MAKES me get up!

    You'll all be pleased to know, (of course) that I've done a bit of work, finally. I should do more... but the pub calleth!
