Grey sky outside
the window sits by my side
concentration is lost, gone
for my bed I long
This cycle I must break
Lest I want to be working late.

The Truth: Procrastination is fueled by weakness in the face of impulse and a failure to think about thinking.
Netflix reveals something about your own behavior you should have noticed by now, something which keeps getting between you and the things you want to accomplish.
If you have Netflix, especially if you stream it to your TV, you tend to gradually accumulate a cache of hundreds of films you think you’ll watch one day. This is a bigger deal than you think.
Take a look at your queue. Why are there so damn many documentaries and dramatic epics collecting virtual dust in there? By now you could draw the cover art to “Dead Man Walking” from memory. Why do you keep passing over it?
Psychologists actually know the answer to this question, to why you keep…

How is it possible that when I find an interesting degree, it’s either in a super small city (9.000 inhabitants, 20.000 inhabitants, etc.) or too north or, or, or?!
