An Indepth Look at Procrastination

turbulentSince I am a master of Procrastination, I thought I should look up the word’s definition. After all, what am I “pro” of? The Online Etymology Dictionary says, “1540s, from Middle French procrastination and directly from Latin procrastinationem (nominative procrastinatio) “a putting off from day to day,” noun of action from past participle stem of procrastinare “put off till tomorrow, defer, delay,” frompro- “forward” (see pro-) + crastinus “belonging to tomorrow,” from cras “tomorrow,” of unknown origin. So there. Now, I will pretend to go do some stuff I am supposed to do. Fauxpostcrastination? Perhaps.
