    i knew it wasn't a good idea...

    this week has been finals for winter quarter at my uni. my final final paper is due at 10am tomorrow morning (by tomorrow morning i mean in 7 hours) via email. Why did I wait until 7pm to start a 7-10 page term paper, which is worth 35% of my total grade?

    I've been starring blankly at microsoft word for a few minutes...clicking back here...then starring at word...and coming up with nothing for the past 1/2 hour.

    As soon as this is done, I can send it on it's happy little e-mail way--and begin my spring break by sleeping as looong as I want...but NO! I am unable to work continuously for more than 10 minutes....*bleh*


    why can't i just be spiderman? :spiderma:


    / rant.

    I used to go through situations like that in before-internet-times, so there was nothing to run to while sitting at a computer (what is a "computer"? I was sitting at my type-writer in those days) ... which is why every time I had to work on a paper the sinks and taps in the bathroom were always SHINY and as clean and spotless as never before nor after. I had to find other things to run to, but believe me: I ran away from my desk once in 10 minutes, too!!!

    See?
    Side-effect of having to compose a paper!
    But it does not do A THING about that PAPER!
    How will you get it done within the remaining 6 1/2 hours now?

    well...I'm just about finished with page 5...but I've got a lot more material to get through :-/ I tend to ramble when I'm tired.

    ways i've distracted myself tonight:
    made my roomate dinner
    took "glamour shots" of myself
    messaged people online
    cleaned my kitchen
    changed clothes 3 times
    edited photos
    posted a thread on here (*wink wink* check it out!)
    posted THIS thread
    rearranged my bookshelves (now in order of height instead of by author)

    .....all these things NEEDED done, I swear....

    the shins tend to help me focus when I'm writing...but i think relaxing music would end with me asleep with a keyboard impression on my face.....

    ...tea however...is in my very near future!

    Good for you to have arrived at Page 5 already! *clap on shoulder*
    Carry on.
    (To work at night would have killed me ... even back then ... I would be asleep now and up by 4, thatwould have worked for me, never the other way round, I am an early bird, not a night owl).

    My son asked me to proof-read his paper (8 pages on C4-plants -> biology), and while I did not understand a thing of the contents of his paper, I am well able to detect typos and dodgy sentence structures :D.

    So if anyone is in need for some proof-reading.... ;)

    I'll keep you in mind!

    Desperation: realizing you've ripped open the last tea bag of your favorite flavor of tea...then stapling it closed and using it anyway. (this can't be healthy)
