All of my classes are essay based this term. Which is cool because there's no studying, but really hard to keep on top of without procrastinating.

Yesterday I managed not to write a single character - but I knitted a hat instead. All bow to the Queen of Procrastination.
After exchanging emails with a superhero, maybe today I have what it takes.

Uggggh. Halfway through the paper, and of course I'm beginning to get tired and everything I write sounds like only half-coherent, semi-redundant blah... will put aside and have some Butternut & Kidney Bean Jamba Stew, then revise the abhorrent thing tomorrow.
(Don't get me wrong, I'm so in love with the topic and everything. I just hate deadlines.)

The deadline for the most important and awesome project of my life (so far) is almost upon me, and I'm still spending wayyyy more time knitting than writing. This is normal, right? Please tell me this is normal. And that I'm going to make it.

It's true, and I'm the living proof! Listen to this pro-tip, my fellow procrastinators:
I wouldn't have believed it before today, but if you start doing the stuff that's less pressing and keep the most pressing task(s) till last, you will actually be able to kill off your whole to-do list.
Today, I cleaned the flat, took a shower, went grocery shopping, and finished that thing I was struggling with. It was the last thing on my list, so I didn't have any excuses left and so I just sat down and did it. Whoo!
Bonus: I bought beer as an incentive, so now I can lean back and have a beer with my lovely BF because I was a good student and finished my task.
(Right now it's marinating on my hard drive; I'll look at it again tomorrow when I've gained some distance and might be able to spot one or two last weak points. Then off it goes!)

Nice one Phoenix.

I can't motivate myself. I have too much to do & not enough time yet I'm finding every distraction possible without any effort whatsoever. Aggghhhhhhhhh.

I have to read and prepare to present the current chapter for class tomorrow but I just want to read my outside reading book and go for a walk.

I will start doing research for my paper as soon as I finish this crossword puzzle. Assuming I finish my crossword puzzle.

I just wrote up half of a presentation I have due tomorrow morning. I don't feel like writing the other half now... I think it's time for Minecraft and shoving a fistful of chocolate chips in my face instead.

So much to prepare for my Spanish oral next week and my graphics exam the week after. I need at least BBB to get into Sheffield but I'm finding it hard to stay motivated.

I don't know yet. The thing I sent is a lengthy abstract for an article, and the deadline was two days ago.
I'll let you know how it turns out!

I should be at school doing work. But while I was at REI the other day buying school supplies (I needed shoe repair glue for a project) and got my dad his father's day present while I was there. It's a few different hiking maps of New Hampshire and Massachusetts trails.

So what am I doing now instead of being at school doing work? Sitting at my desk, looking at the maps, and planning out hiking routes for backpacking over summer break.

Soooo many things I should be doing right now. I have 2 papers, 2 tests, and a presentation all about 2 weeks away. I always end up watching videos online or avoiding the work.

The presentation scares me. Last semester a student started crying when the teachers asked questions. I'm never going to be prepared.

My Shakespeare teacher is a super hard grader I know it's impossible to make a good grade.

Can't remember if I posted this elsewhere already because I'm so tired, but I've been doing math homework for most of the past 14 hours or so. I can't wait to be done with the semester.

finnophile, I am saying the exact opposite right now (I"m an English major, too):
Why did I take lecture-based elective credits this quarter? I have zero motivation to go to class because I can just learn it on my own time, but then I leave it until I'm a week behind and cram it all in, then freak out because there's a test. For one class, I had to write a 3-4 page paper and I couldn't do it because it wasn't enough space to write a thorough analysis. Even though she made a point to say it was an essay, not a research paper!
Not to mention I have to ace the two tests and the final in my American Dialects class in order to pass without a miserable grade. yeesh.

Okay, so I have to complete a power point presentation for my final project in one of my grad classes... The problem with that, is I just had a few drinks, and I don't drink that often. I'll let you know how my drunk power point turns out.
