they warned you this would happen, but you didn’t listen.. did you?
40 minutes later and the page count is officially 6. I don’t really know why I doubt myself, I always pull through in the end. I’m still forced to wonder, will the day come where I never have to write another research paper EVER AGAIN?!?!?!?!
Yes, sir. It is 3 AM. I am STILL working on this internet research paper. All-nighter is in order, I suppose I can take a nap after my lit class tomorrow morning. I am awake for no other reason than the sheer force of caffeine and determination… at least I’m pretty sure I’m writing in English. Well, 4 pages are officially done. I don’t even care if it flows at this point, I just want to regurgitate thoughts onto the paper and fix it so it makes sense later. I really hope I don’t have a lit paper to do this weekend, this is officially the most difficult summer of my life. 13 summer credits, what the hell was I thinking? I just want to curl up in the fetal position and wait for this all to be over… but for some reason, I just don’t think that will suffice. Hopefully, I can sleep at some point during this lifetime -__-
if yes, refill cup. then repeat.
if no, repeat.
see the problem here? I have created an infinite loop.
so yeah, to answer the most obvious question first: yes, it is really 1:30 in the morning and yes, I am really drinking iced coffee at this obscene hour. I refuse to fall behind schedule though… Scheduling is like setting up a super complex system of dominoes for me, and one wrong move could spiral the whole thing out of control. I CANNOT believe I thought this paper was due in another week. What the hell was I even thinking? No professor in his right mind would want to grade research papers in a rush so he could submit final grades..
I swear, most adults picked up their coffee drinking habits in college. It makes perfect sense.
Oh, yeah.. and my point? It is 1:30 in the morning. I am STILL awake. I am STILL drinking iced coffee. I am STILL not anywhere close to done with this paper…
…but hey, I got a page and a half done ;) that’s a start right?
how do you eat an elephant?
…one bite at a time :)
I’m going on hour 21 of consciousness.. While the research portion has started, I still haven’t actually written anything (lovely). Looks like my diet will consist of caffeine and nicotine until further notice… -__- Though I love programming, I could definitely use a day or two off just to slip into a coma right about now… but the bright side is I have a week off coming up!
i guess what they say is true.. when life hands you lemons…
…squeeze the juice in life’s eye and run away.
i love graphic design <3
programming is like a drug to me :)
The last time I noticed the time it was 7 pm. It’s now almost 10:30 and I’ve been sitting here listening to country music and writing code… and I completely lost track of time. Time to start getting ready for bed I suppose, I feel so accomplished :)
..I guess it’s true what they say: “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”
Goodnight all :)
I am completely incapable of paying attention for long periods of time… I don’t know why this comes as a surprise to me, but it does. I always thought intelligence was what separated the men from the boys, but it turns out that persistence is key to intelligence. The only way to become good at something is through repetition.
