To whom this may concern,
I would like to begin by saying that I would have liked to submit this appeal much earlier - and had more time to work on it - however, I have been working on group assignments in all the time I've not been in classes, in hope that my work would end up being worth something.
So, I just wanted to quickly and briefly touch on a few things.
Firstly, procrastination. It bears worth mentioning that this is far from a new problem, though it has been a larger problem in recent years. I believe my primary problem is that the way in which I usually procrastinate is my hobby - which itself is very similar to a large part of the coursework I must complete for my degree. Namely, in regards to the programming work I do for my degree, and the tinkering I do as a hobby. It was recommended that I reach out to Curtin Counselling in regards to the Procrastination Workshop I was informed they held every so often - though to my subsequent disappointment, the last one for this year had already run in
