Reading. Gah! I tell myself, "Reading is better than television," and I'll read for hours at a time. Mostly to get out of chores, but who likes chores? I pay my sister to do mine. Yes, I am lazy. I am lzy and a procrastinator.
Plus, I'm always on my laptop or reading until like three in the morning which means I'll sleep in until twelve the next day.

I'm extremely lazy. Lethargic. Sloth. Words that describe me. If it wasn't half as boring as it is, I could really just sit around and do nothing all day, all the time.

The worst though is going on the Internet, when I have it. I can't write when I'm on the Internet. Luckily, I don't have wireless, yet. But I will soon, for school.

So I probably will never write again after that.

Watching tv (sometimes without interest about what i watch - just to do something) and surfing the web ( I lose the time , I start searching for something and i end up searching or reading about something else!)

Ah, I think I voted wrong, I thought it was "what do you procrastinate doing?" and I said "reading" because I tend to put it off sometimes.
Hmm, but I think the internet has the biggest hold on me, when I am trying to do homework or have a list of very important things to do I keep telling myself I have more than enough time but all that time is gone by the time I get off :/

Read...or surfing the net. Or just my own laziness.

Or sleeping.

Well, I voted "None of the Above" but I just realized that nowadays it's that takes up the most part of my free time. When I'm allowed on the computer, that is...

Reading. I spend so much time on it and if I'm asked to do something I usually say "When I've finished this (chapter, page, book)".
