Procrastination as a Science

So, as a college student I thought I had the art of procrastination down to a T. Let me tell you what, being a senior in college, graduating in three days, It has become straight science. College senioritis is worse than High School. In High School, even though you knew it was over, you had to keep trying because you had four more years of college to get through.

Yet College is different.

College Senioritis = (graduating in 3 days/going to Russia for a year)^regular tiredness

Now if you break that all down and work it all out, you get something like this:

(Graduating/Russia)^Tiredness = an extremely long period of time
Time-BA Degree+Real World Experience= Employer not caring about undergrad classes
Employer Attitude+Ending School= Straight Apathy
Apathy+Graduation= Who really cares about this stuff anyway?

Now for all of you non-mathematically minded people (Like me), what this means is that I just don't care anymore. I mean, I kind of do. But not really. Which is a really weird feeling for me. I've spent most of my life caring about school and how well I did. But I've gotten to the point where it's like "Does any of this really matter anyway?" I mean when it really comes down to it, it's about who you know and your life experiences. I'm not being cynical either. I'm just stating a fact.

Do I feel like the past three years of my life have been wasted on a useless degree? Well, sometimes. But mostly not. I mean SPU has given me a good run. I've learned a lot here. Being at a really liberal campus has given me perspectives that I never would have gotten elsewhere. Not only that, but I've made some really great friends throughout my time here. So all in all, it was worth being $15,000 in debt I suppose. It was worth the experience.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to stop procrastinating these last three projects.
