Konad and Procrastination

It's that time of the semester again and I have to give a presentation in one of my classes tomorrow (as in, Wednesday morning.  Sadly, I have to do another on Thursday too).  I'm not too hot on public speaking, so I'm dreading it - a lot.  So instead of finishing my presentation, I've done just about everything but.  I think it's this whole perfectionist thing.  I put it off because I can't handle trying to make sure it's perfect - then I end up pressed for time and therefore have 'an excuse' for why it's not perfect.  Of course, the 'excuse' is just for me.  It helps me feel better about the fact that my presentation (or paper) isn't perfect.  Instead of blaming myself for it, I blame my lack of time.

So instead of being proactive and dealing with this perfectionista procrastination, I instead totally gave into it.  My house is now sparkling, the dishes are washed, the pets are fed, and I even cleaned out the pellet stove (one of my most dreaded tasks).  My outfit for tomorrow has been selected and, of course, my nails have been polished and Konaded.

So without further ado (I can't keep procrastinating all night, unfortunately), here are my presentation perfect Konad nails.  Now if only I can get my presentation as polished as my fingers, I'll be in great shape.

Have a lovely Wednesday all!

Haha, I'm a procrastinator too. My excuse for putting something off is that I can't focus unless everything around me is perfect. Otherwise, I get distracted... Good job with the Konad. Your nails look great! Hope the presentation went well!
