P for procrastination, incase you were wondering. Lord, taking on the International Baccalaureate over the past 2 years has made me an absolute queen of procrastination. This is quite evident by the fact that I’m writing this post because I’m putting off doing some music homework.

I think procrastination is like one of those natural processes, like a white rose living on in the garden, where it will always happen. It happens to the best of us and can strike whene –
Oh sorry, a link for a qooh.me popped up on my newsfeed and I got distracted. Anywho, where was I? Ah yes, discussing the devil that is procrastination. And that’s exactly what you’re doing now, yes YOU, I’m talking to you directly as the reader. You are a prime example of a procrastinator, get out of this post and do what you’re supposed to be doing! Or do it later.
