weekend snippets: procrastination

Chocolate cupcakes with sugared violets

Whew. This is my last month of school. Like maybe ever. 

Days are busy. Tense. There's a lot of anxiety around here, folks. 

My head won't stop turning over all the papers I need to write, meetings I need to attend, and jobs I need to apply for. Ugh. 

I am longing for May. 

Strawberry jam testing

Lately I have fits of energy during which I clean or make cupcakes or crochet a few rows. Or, you know, begin making a pot of jam the moment I wake up.

Vacuuming is surprisingly satisfying. Cupcakes seem like such an accomplishment when everything else feels so hard. 

I like to think that I am a productive procrastinator.

Not all my procrastination strategies are so productive, though. I will confess that the only time I read People of Walmart is when I have a paper due. It's not the best way to spend my time, but I can't help myself!

Are you a procrastinator? What do you do? 


  1. Is it strawberry season in your neck of the woods now? We've got another few months before it is here. You must feel such a sense of relief that school will be over. Wow. That's a huge accomplishment.

  2. hmmm i wonder who those beautiful, delicate cupcakes could have been for....? ME! they were DELICIOUS and almost too pretty to eat. ALMOST! i am so excited i got to see you sunday and we went on a crazy dinner adventure with daddio and korey lol

  3. They say procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday! ;)

    I'm a pretty productive procrastinator. But I have my not so productive procrastinations as well. Sudoku on my iPod is probably the worst.

    (PS: Lovely creations, Allison!)
