John Carpenter is back this month to commiserate with those students who are at heart procrastinators. In other words, those students who have not completed their applications yet. Read on to share the insights of a fellow travel in procrastination land and get inspired. Regardless of your disposition, the time is now!
It’s the holidays. You’re on break. Time to sleep in every single day if you want. And if you’re like many high school students, you still have some work to do on finishing college applications. I get it—I procrastinate, too, and it’s not as bad as everyone says it is. But there are some real advantages to getting things done early, and of course, those of you who are FINISHED and have submitted applications know this already. But this post is not for you.
For you, those who get everything done ahead of time, congratulations. We procrastinators wish we were more like you, but we’re not. We try. And sometimes we even get better, but the truth is that many of us will always put things off to the very end.
So, if you’re one of those finally getting around to getting your apps finished, good for you.
