I cannot remember how often I put things off until the last fifth. I am starting to suppose that this is how I operate the best. I suppose a lot of us perfect procrastination in school. Every one of us learn how to work best under pressure. Every one of us enroll in as many classes as the school will allow to optimize our tuition. Then when it’s time for the work to be turned in, the two of us have to turn to a system of need. I have to or need to do a particular thing. Whether the two of us wait until the last fifth because of our hectic schedule or because the two of us need the pressure to work our best procrastination can often lead to unnecessary cost or inconveniences. I experienced this first hand when I was planning a trip while I was in frigid weather. I was worried that the pipes would burst in the home while the two of us were away while I was in the frigid weather. I didn’t want to leave the furnace running as normal so that the two of us could conserve energy and save some on our utility cost. Of course, it is tempting to save a little on the electric bill by turning off the heat while I was in this time. I rationalized that using the heat system while I was in this time is less extravagant than a plumbing repair work if pipes freeze and burst! At the last fifth, I did some investigating into the best ways to prevent pipes from bursting; One pick was to keep the control component set to the same temperature both while I was in the day and at night, but since I would be away while I was in frigid weather, the recommended temperature to leave the heat on in our home, is to set the temperature no lower than 55° F.
