Ladies and gents. It is fair to say I am experiencing total burnout. You see, yours truly is a chronic procrastinator. You know how some of you think you are procrastinators? Well, shove it. I am the king, so much so that if death comes to take my life, chances are, I’ll procrastinate dying.

It works well for me because I prefer having sustained bouts of very intense hard work than a light sprinkle of tasks spread over a much longer period. It’s a rush. A most refined rush. And when you make a habit out of it, you become well acquainted with your limits and you push their boundaries. How else can one be said to truly grow?

Or maybe I’m just your garden variety junkie and the rush is my razor delineated thin white line? Addicted to working in a burnout. One long sniff and I feel like a seraph in paradise. Burnout paradise.

Anyways, in my current situation, there’s a slim chance say I don overdo am. But make we dey watch.
