So I've been putting off writing an essay all day... now it's 3am and the essay is due at 8am. What is wrong with me? Why have I been browsing the internet for like 17 hours straight, while telling myself I'll start writing it on the next hour mark? Why am I typing this right now? Maybe I should just get like an hour of sleep first... that's probably a good idea... right? .......help me.....
@KiritoSAOHero, Great idea man! Just get some sleep, hell you're probably sleep deprived, before you know it you'll be talking to yourself! Get a few hours of sleep and you'll feel well rested and ready to write! You'll still have like 2 or 3 hours to write the essay when you wake up ;) good luck!
@KiritoSAOHero, okay what you need to do is turn off your internet, and write your essay. You can finish it in 2 hours get more sleep than if you woke up to do it. Next time, start it the day you can get enough information to start it.
@XannDak, 2 hours and get*
Woke up early to do it*
@XannDak, haha I do this like every time I have to write an essay, I need the Internet for research and resources and whatnot so I can't turn it off. Luckily I'm a pretty decent writer so the worst grade I've gotten is a B and that was when I only gave myself and hour and a half to write a 5 page paper. This time I have to write a 12 page paper though.... so I'm actually probably super fvcked...
@KiritoSAOHero, See here's the thing, you need the internet for preliminary research and to clear up any incongruities you may come across, but you don't really need it to actually write the essay. I've always been a subpar writer so I've needed every advantage if I wanted to get a good grade on an essay. If I had the ability to write a 5 page paper in less than 2 hours I would floored with how great I am. So be thankful for your gift and write your essay lol
@KiritoSAOHero, its 6:30am here and I've been up all night trying to fix a toilet I clogged
@KiritoSAOHero, sounds like you need a convenient virtual reality videogame to get stuck in for 2 years so you can be excused from doing schoolwork
@KiritoSAOHero, I did that go every essay for 2 semesters in college. Always wrote it the morning it was due
@KiritoSAOHero, should watch that Ted talk on procrastinating, it won't fix your problem but it'll resonate with it.
@KiritoSAOHero, sooooo... how did your essay turn out?
@Xig, Pretty good, I didn't sleep so I had 5 hours to do it. I got through all 12 pages, plus it was on the Meiji Restoration, the effects of colonialism on the Japanese populace, and early 20th century Japan's expansionist policies. I know quite a bit about Japan so I didn't have to do much research, all in all I expect an A.
@KiritoSAOHero, Niiiiiice. Who knows why we do things like that. I always used to do that in college too. I guess it's postponing suffering for present joy, but then you get all tired .
@KiritoSAOHero, I hope you got off and did your paper rather than. Kept thumbwhoring. I've been in that position, but I didn't go procrastinating and post my problem here
@rnf73, wow harsh judgement... read the other replies and you'll see that as always I came through. Honestly I get better grades when I procrastinate until the last minute, I probably work better under pressure
@KiritoSAOHero, I do the same thing. I procrastinate and will wake up at 2:00 a.m. to do my paper due at 8:00, and I think being under pressure helps. I've written whole genetics research paper, sources include, in one night. You finished, good. It just gets me when it people spend time when they're on the clock like that typing out a comment on their phone rather than working
It shouldn't be embarrassing. I moved back in twice with both pregnancies cause the place we got was always too small. So went from 1 bedroom,parents 2, bedroom parents, now a 3 bedroom awesome place. My parents are awesome and I thank them every chance I get.
Can't be traumatized by your uncle if you traumatize him first
You can't be embarrassed about moving back in with your parents if you don't have any
