does anyone else do this?
im about to start my 2500 word english coursework right now.
Why now? You have the whole holiday to do it.
out. Work good. Internet people baaad.
I pretend it's because I work best late, but I just delay and delay.
Though it eventually got less and less as I got a better work ethic...
I *can't* write it unless it's the night before it's due.
I'm starting to fret a little about the 2 essays I have due in within the next 3 weeks... I have done *nothing towards either of them so far
...But I know, deep down, I still won't start writing them til the day/night before.
for doing this. Every essay I've ever been set has always ended up being a last minute panic job, the problem is it never shows through in the grades so I just do it over again even though I just get so fraught and stressed. Will make it my new years resolution to not leave things to the last minute.
accounting and finance though
Which suggests insanity, until I explain that the big 'uns (essays, that is) are usually in English
Lightening the load somewhat
Get Carter's closing scene makes me feel, via cinematography.
What's it on?
Started at 9pm ended at 10am. Went to seminar, handed it in. Came back and went to sleep for like two days!
(although i was set 4x5000 word essays in the same time :P )It is a nightmare. I've managed to get two done, but I tackled the easier ones first, so now I've got 8 days of pain lined up. As a result of my pathetic procrastination, I think I've also watched more TV in the last two weeks than I have done in years.
But for different reasons. Our university is somewhat over-populated and this can make finding a computer in the peak times - i.e. daytime - a comeplete nightmare.
I've discovered a way around this. Come to the library around 7pm and work until 1/2am. This way you benefit form being able to locate a free computer and enjoy the relative silence.
It's ironic that a library should be anything other than silent, but during the daytime hours it's terrible.
over the course of 3 sleepless nights and four days of bloodshot eyes and imitation red bull hysteria.
i probably would've got a much better final grade for my degree if i hadn't.
the world is more serene at 3am? Essay writing is always best when accompanied by bird song.
that really tests your resolve. so peaceful and tempting to just pack it all in.
