pro·cras·ti·na·tion \-ˌkras-tə-ˈnā-shən\ noun

The origin of PROCRASTINATE comes the Latin word procrastinatus, from pro- forward + crastinus of tomorrow.  

There always come a point in the time-line of our lives when it becomes quite apparent that we suck at schedules. Then you realize the two months you originally gave yourself to finish a million projects has just turned into one month due to the above mentioned procrastination. Now you're going to have to work like a dog to get everything done in time. Absolutely magnificant. Please note the sarcasm in the use of a (.) instead of an (!).

Without further ado, here's the list of crap that needs to get done before January 31st. Why, the 31st you may ask? Because my last semester of nursing school starts on February 1st and them professors aren't taking any prisoners. Boo.
