Some years ago, I tried to be a planner and I found it caused me stress that was really unnecessary in the grand scheme of things. So I stopped planning. Now, I have a mental priority list (that's always changing hahah) and I cross off things from it. I usually try to keep a balance between tediousness and fun with a very obvious preference towards the fun (aka I procrastinate).
Example of a conversation I had yesterday:
J-friend: There are only 2 days left. Stop browsing all over the place and start the paper. Now. *breathes slowly to not scream at me but is still obviously stressed on my behalf*
Me: What do you mean "only"? I have 48 h! Do you know what I can do in all that time? *grin*
