Procrastinating – Does it lead to Anxiety?

Well if it does – Then I’m glad that I’m not as bad as I used to be! During University, I was the worst!

I am the procrastination queen, and people close to me know this very well. So I thought I would do some research on it… It’s not good news. I swear this could have been written for me.

Theories around the causes of procrastination;

Latitude Review: Screaming singing and passion make duo Slaves a success

The young two-piece garage punk band turned a few heads on the Lake Stage with their heavy rock and angry lyrics.

Slaves are Isaac Holman, 22, on drums and vocals and Laurie Vincent, 20, on guitar. Holman attracted the crowd with his screaming singing and cockney accent which received a positive and rebellious response from the audience.
