    Just finished my fucking taxes and it was a bitch this time, worse than usual. Still it feels good not to worry about it getting it done anymore.

    Do you obsess over unfinished business - papers, howework, taxes, etc - and like to get it off your mind as soon as possible, or do you let it all slide without a care in the world til the last minute?
     
  2. I tend to procrastinate in periods of unhappiness.


    I'm on top of things otherwise.

    Thank God the guy did it for me.

    Ugh, yes and no. I have some things that I can't shake off my mind while others I pass off like a torch from one part of my brain to the back. I have ADD, so normally it's easy to move on from one thing to the next, I'm very resilient and multi-task relatively well. But I do have a tendency to compartmentalize the things that I should be doing with the things that are right in front of me. I do procrastinate - and it's usually the things in the middle on the importance scale that I wind up doing last. I take care of the big things, let the little nit-picking things have their time and place in my mind as kind of a break and then the stuff that falls in the middle tends to fester and has to wait for me to get to.

    I do not obsess over unfinished business,

    If something is on my mind that much I get it done and over with asap.

    I hate having things that I know need to be done.

    Taxes bit me in the ass hard this year.
