Procrastination is basically defined as putting off the things that you should be doing now till later. Can you count the number of times you have had to put off on important task till later? Cooking up exercises that are always as good as another? Does an approaching deadline means a crisis to you?  Do you keep hesitating each time you make a decision?  If you often find yourself in such low productivity situation, then there is a big chance that your life is under control of the procrastination habit.
       Procrastination, they say is a thief of time. Whatever the heart conceives to do, it can achieve but procrastination is the number one enemy of success. Do your best at the appropriate time. Delay is dangerous. Once a decision is taken promptly, take it up and follow your mind. Those who procrastinate delay their success.

                                      INTEGRITY A CORE VALUE

Integrity is a core human value of honesty, strong moral principles and uprightness. It is an individual decision to uphold oneself to consistently moral and ethical standards. The word integrity was formed from the Latin adjective integer, meaning whole or complete. In this context, integrity is the inner sense of "wholeness" deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. In others words, an individual is judge as a person of integrity if he or she act according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.
Integrity flows across every aspect of our lives, however as students and academics integrity cannot be separated from academic success, his is why academic integrity is very important to academic action.
Academic integrity is a commitment even i the face of adversity to maintain allegiance to these five fundamental human values: HONESTY, TRUST, FAIRNESS, RESPECT AND RESPONSIBILITY. From this values flows principle of human behaviour tha enables academic communities to translate ideas to action.

Who is a friend?
This is a big question that usually comes up in social discourse almost on daily basis. To answer this question, I have to mention some of the qualities we do not expect from a friend. These include:
1. Someone who gossips with your name is not a friend.
2. someone who envies you and looks for your downfall is not a friend.
3. Someone who introduces you to vices (such as stealing, illicit sexual relationships, greed, chemical and drug abuse, vulgar languages, to mention a few) is not a friend.
4. Someone who cannot give you good advice is not a friend.
5. Someone who reveals your secrets to every Tom, Dick and Harry is not a friend.
6. Someone who cannot stand with you in times of trouble, but will only come around you when the going is good is not a friend.
7. Someone who cannot help you when you are in need is not a friend.
If these are the qualities of someone who is not a friend, then you can easily say who a friend is. Be careful then in choosing who you relate with and call a friend, so that you shall not be led astray.
