“Procrastination, procrastinaay-tion…

It’s making me late…”

For those of you who don’t remember, that’s to this tune:

I sing my version of the chorus whenever I realize that I am procrastinating myself into a corner. This week, I should be working on my internship applications. I did do a bit of work on it yesterday, but not nearly enough. I have two days before I need to turn in a first draft – but I don’t have one.

Well, I do have a first draft of the first essay – but it is twice as long as it should be. Here’s the question:

1. Please provide an autobiographical statement. There is no “correct” format for this question. Answer this question as if someone had asked you “tell me something about yourself.” It is an opportunity for you to provide the internship site some information about yourself. It is entirely up to you to decide what information you wish to provide along with the format in which to represent it. 4000 characters

They’re kidding, right? Mamma mia. The worst thing, though, isn’t even the application. The worst thing is that it’s my dad I wish I could talk to about the application. For those of you who don’t know, my dad passed a few years ago. It’s kind of a nasty cycle, missing him. I get to working on my thing, then I think of something I’d like to ask him, then I feel sad and I can’t seem to get going again. Not that I’m blaming my dad for my procrastination – I’m an old pro at procrastinating. This just makes it sadder.
