i was coming to post that i was procrastinating on a project but i didnt know why. i typed "procrastinating" in my google search to make sure i was spelling it right. the first entry was from wikipedia & said this:

Procrastination is the deferment or avoidance of an action or task to a later time and is often linked to perfectionism.


Traditionally, procrastination has been associated with perfectionism, a tendency to negatively evaluate outcomes and one's own performance, intense fear and avoidance of evaluation of one's abilities by others, heightened social self-consciousness and anxiety, recurrent low mood, and workaholism. Slaney (1996) found that adaptive perfectionists were less likely to procrastinate than non-perfectionists, while maladaptive perfectionists (people who saw their perfectionism as a problem) had high levels of procrastination (and also of anxiety).[3]

yep thats exactly why. i better go face my demons.
