I procrastinate with homework all the time (currently doing so while typing this).

How many aspies out there actually have a good work ethic?

I have a horrible habit of procrastinating. I always wait until the last minute to do my homework. I rarely do my homework as soon as I get home from class.

I have a good work ethic, just bad work habits. Then again, at this point, I'm not sure my ethic is untainted. I'll see soon enough.

This is what happens when you work too many customer service jobs. Work ethic goes down the drain, because it's about quantity over quality.

I'll happily spend hours upon hours studying, or even doing relevant work, but as soon as I get busywork like a lab writeup I just wander of and fall asleep or something

It's very hard for me to begin doing my homework. I know I need to do it, but I just can't start studying when needed. When it comes to essays, I never do them on time..

I procrastinate a lot - for example, I have yet to complete Science revision, AS English Coursework, History homework, Geography Revision and other things.

Definitely. I wouldn't do it at all but I have a phobia of getting yelled at by people other than my immediate family. I used to always do my homework right when I got home and I'd do every question completely, now I almost always have 3-4 questions that haven't completed. :D

Sicne I'm studying graphics design, I won't procrastinate as long as I have a snappy computer that can handle a lot. The other day, I was quite un-productive trying to make an Adobe Premiere 2D animation with a bogus school computer that hung up and lagged everytime I made a minor adjustment. I basically ended up playing solitaire while the computer was trying to recover from the pressure.

I then decided to do my work at home on my trusty iMac, and viola! Snip snap zip zap, I was already halfway of my 10 second 2D movie in no time!


Ask yourself if you are doing something you really enjoy...

I procrastinate my homework all the time, sometimes chores too.

If I have a huge amount of homework, I will make myself do one thing a day, until the day(s) they are due.

Minor stuff like daily maths I often do in bed at night or in form class or break times.

I almost always procrastinate, though some semesters, depending on the quality of my life at the time, I was pretty on the ball. However, my procrastination hasn't really gotten in the way; in fact, some of my best research essays, properly referenced, were done mere hours before the due date. Sometimes I think of myself as an essay machine, and some of my peers agree, because I've been paid by many lazy neurotypical students to write essays for them (secretly, of course).
