The art of procrastination: How does a break turn into a hiatus?

Procrastination (noun): The act of delaying or postponing something.  You know the thing you tell yourself you’ve absolutely got to do, but didn’t really find time to do it at the end? That’s procrastination.  Like the skirmish little fiend it is, procrastination seeps into your resolution. You won’t really know what happened until it had happened.
