What do I do when I "hit the wall"?

I reach half-way through the semester, and everything goes down the hole. How can I stop this train wreck?

This happens every semester. I start off strong - complete everything on time (sometimes even days ahead), get a 90%+ on all of my assignments. 6 or so weeks in, I'll run into an assignment or project I really don't want to do. I will ignore it until the due date comes by and goes. Then it's almost like a domino effect - I'm so paralyzed from not completing one assignment, that I can't muster up ANY motivation to complete the others. I plummet from a 90% to a 50% or worse. Not sure what is wrong with me. Yes, it's a very odd case of procrastination, but how I can slap myself into reality? I really detest being stuck in this situation over and over again.
