Final Destination: Procrastination

There, there.

Don’t beat yourself up.

You’re young, it’s fine.

There’s plenty of time.

You can do it in the evening.

Actually, I know you’re tired,

How about you do it tomorrow?

You know what, it’s not due for several days, you could just start it when they need it.

After all, you work best under pressure.

Ooops you missed the deadline?

Worry not, you’re more than capable of making up for it.

You are so smart and wise, these time constraints are for mere mortals.

Your teachers don’t know just how great you are.

What? You failed the course?

Don’t worry we can finish it off at a different university.

Don’t beat yourself up.

You’re still young, it’s fine.

There’s plenty of time.

You know what?

Let’s not stress out too much this time.

We’ll do the same thing we did last time, we’ll just be smarter about it.

We’ll sleep a bit longer, since we know exactly how long it takes to get there.

We’ll run to the classes if need be.

Why do we even need to go to classes?

Didn’t we learn all this before?

Let’s stay at home and play games.

We’ll be fine.

Why start studying now?

We can start when the exams are around the corner…

Oh… you failed… again?

Don’t beat yourself up.

There’s still lots of time,

You’ll be fine.

40 is the new 20 after all…


Wow.

I’m the first one here.

To think I’m early…

Early for your funeral.

I know I said you had plenty of time left.

I think I know now why they say I’m the father of all lies.

I’m the only one here,

But I guess I should give a eulogy:

 

Hey buddy!

 

Remember that Sunday when you decided you’d get saved soon?

Yeah?

Me too.

Best day of my life to be honest.

I’m so glad you didn’t.

See you in hell.

 

Sincerely yours,

– the Devil.
