I consider myself an overachieving procrastinator. What’s that? It’s somebody who, while they are procrastinating from doing something, ends up completing everything else!
From cleaning the bathroom sink, to starting a blog (yes that’s right, I started Dani Dearest while procrastinating!), I will gladly do anything besides what I am actually supposed to do.
This covers up my procrastination, and makes it productive!
