LOL, I did the exact same thing to memorize my valedictory address. And as for procrastination, it's like any other bad trait--easy to pick up, hard to let go. You can't expect yourself to say, "I'm done with procrastination starting tomorrow.", because it doesn't work like that (and you'd procrastinate on your promise ). Gradually, start finishing assignments earlier in small increments (such as a day or two). Forcing yourself to think a long-term assignment is due earlier than it actually is--that's a very nice method.
