You see, as I've mentioned before, I am pretty much constantly taking a grad class here or there to finish up my Masters degree. I'm thisclose to finishing. After this class (which ends FRIDAY), I have only three more classes and I'm done.
But, to finish this class...I have to write a paper. A quite daunting paper in my humble-been-out-of-school-for-way.too.long opinion. There was a time in my life during my senior year of undergrad that I wrote 12 page papers WEEKLY for my education classes...and now...? A 6 page paper has got the best of me.
This paper...is due Friday. This paper...must be written in the useless "APA" format. [Why do they do this anyway?! Let us just WRITE without all the little rules...pleeeease.] This paper...is going to be boring. This paper....seems like it won't.ever.happen. Honestly.
I even drove myself to a little cafe...laptop and books in hand...to sit, with no distractions, and get this paper done this morning.
I just had to check facebook.
I just had to check blogs.
I just had to answer the facebook chats that I heard "pop" up on my screen.
I had to check my favorite forum.
I had to email some friends.
I had to upload a picture.
I had to comment on someone's picture.
I had to tweet. (Okay. I did not have to tweet. Considering I do this like...once a month. Obviously--someone was trying to procrastinate....)
And all these things...led me to do absolutely nothing. NOTHING.
Okay, well, to my defense-I did at least type out the title of my paper into a word document. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
So, here I am-blogging, when, this paper is looming over my head. Friday may seem like a long way away, but with the week I have coming up...it will be here before you know it.
Without further ado, I'm going to go now to
Wish me luck.
