Why I Binge Watch TV

Television is the epitome of my summer. I know summer was a handful of months ago, but I can still visualize how I spent my unproductive days: I’d be on the couch, blankets sprawled across me, as I begin my fifth-ish hour of Netflix watching. If I didn’t have time for my daily intake of the latest shows, I MADE TIME. Procrastination, laziness, and distractions filled my 15 hours of being awake- most in front of the tv eating ice cream(or whatever junk I put in me).

Of course there’s my dad coming in with the occasional, “You should off the TV, Esha” but pssshhhh it’s not like that’s ever gonna happen. 

But, WHY do I enjoy this rather unhealthy addiction? Because it’s inhumane to miss the last episode of the season for this new baking show! Nor can I just NOT WATCH what happens when Barry Allen realizes that his father-like figure’s from the future! Most importantly, the pain of being two episodes away from the season finale but you realized “Maybe this should stop…”

None the less, I am looking forward to summer.

The 5 Steps of Procrastination

I have an amazing talent: procrastination. Even my parents know that by now. Just the other day my dad asked me, “Finished all your homework?” And I sat there slow to respond. “Um, I still have a little left.” And then he asks, “How much?” And I say something but whatever it is basically means, “Just yesterdays homework.” 

So here are 5 steps of procrastination-

***disclaimer! I always turn in homework on time***

1. Debating. This is the step were you basically think to yourself, “Do I really want to do this?” And eventually… You don’t.

2. Conscience. You’re conscious of all the work you left behind, but that doesn’t matter!

3. Karma. The next day you have realized that you didn’t do the work, and you keep asking yourself, “Why couldn’t I just do it!”

4. Panic. By know you’re just panicking, and trying to figure out how you can finish all the work that you left behind.

5. Conclusion. You have either: barely succeeded with the little time you had, or completely failed.

And that about sums up my life. Just kidding!
