Chasing Anna - April 15, 2002

by Joe Ruelos

Well income tax returns are due (postmarked, at least) by the end of today, which is midnight (12am Tuesday morning, 4/16/02). Mine are still incomplete, though I could have finished them (or at least started them) yesterday, Saturday, or even Sunday evening, but I seem to keep bumping its priority for other things like filling an empty stomach, doing laundry, etc. You might have an argument that I'm a classic procrastinator.

However, I tend to view my procrasting habits as sort of "slow cooking". Really, I simmer the thoughts or calculations in such a way that when it comes time to act, the process is cake, or flows easily. In most cases, mainly in the academic world (but slow progressing into my professional life), I have reason to believe (and proof no less!) that I do my best work at the last minute.
