Abstract
Description
Good news: you’re not a hypocrite. Or, if it’s any consolation, I don’t think you are. I see you sweating over meticulous to-do lists, penciling, in excruciating detail, the tasks you need to accomplish this Sunday from 1:00-3:00 PM. I hear you courteously decline that movie because you “need to study for chem tonight.” And yes, I feel your frustration after accidentally spending those two hours procrastinating, accomplishing none of what you so dutifully planned. How can you claim you’re working when you’re just wasting time?
