Update on my "Stress" #2

It is 11:24 and I am finally finished writing my paper :) Eric has already edited half of it and now he just has the rest tomorrow. I feel so bad that he has to do this, but hey I cook dinner for ya, you can at least edit my paper because you are a genius at it, right? I have always wondered why that boy didn't major in English, its probably because he didn't want to put in the work of reading all those books and writing all those papers.
Anyways, thanks for following my little stress story, but don't be sad I am going to have to write another 10 page paper pretty soon. Goody I get freak out and stress out again YEAH! Hopefully the 2nd time around I 'll start a little sooner. Oh who I am kidding, I am a procrastinator! :)

Update on my "Stress"

Ok, day 2, I have a total of 9 pages with maybe 2 more sections to. I was so worried about getting 10 pages.

Through this whole experience today I have realized something.....

Ok, so today I stayed home to write my paper because I did not want to walk to school in the rain with the computer in my backpack, so I stayed home. I brought the computer up stairs so I would not have the distraction of TV or staring out the window in lala land (I'm good at that one). Well, I have figured out what I do to distract or procrastinate myself from doing homework at home. Well, it's not the TV, or sleeping,or talking on the phone or cleaning (which might not be a bad thing), guess what it is.... EATING. Yep I eat to not do other things. Now that I have come to this conclusion it has explained a lot of things, I don't only do this for homework I do it for other things as well. I guess I did learn something through writing this paper, but it wasn't what I was suppose to learn.

So as some of you may not know I am a huge procrastinator! I seem to have a habit to but things off. So a few weeks ago we were assigned a 10 page paper and to have 10 empirical articles to support what we are writing about. Well here it is Friday 4 days away from when the paper is due and I only have 4 1/2 pages done. You see, instead of working on my paper I am writing this post. This is my problem, I have an attention span the size of a Nat. You know whats even funnier, I came to the library to focus because at home I can not (I can find something to distract me, even if their is nothing around). You see I am in the library and nothing is around me cause I found this little room and I am already distracted. That is the problem by having to use the computer to write and do research, the internet is readily available. You see I am just rambling on because I do not want to write this paper. I am thinking..well, i have written 4 1/2 pages today, maybe I can just write 4 1/2 pages tomorrow and then I'll have 9 pages. You might be thinking you have 4 days to write this, don't freak out. Well, on top of this paper I have and exam on Tuesday, the same day this paper is due. Oh yeah! I wish I was a more on the ball kind of person. I would rather be out doing things than doing homework.

I am so jealous of Eric. Seriously! I don't know how this boy does it but he could write 10 pages like its nothing, you ask me to write 2 pages and I like have a heart attack. You should see him edit my papers, can you just say pathetic! And when he studies he can have music playing and everything, me I need complete silence. Eric and I were talking about this the other day actually, and he was like why can't you listen to music like techno, and nerdy me said because I would problem start thinking of twirling routines. I haven't even taught or performed a routine since 2005!

Anyways, I think I have procrastinated long enough. But just on a side note, the other day I was thinking how I use to have to hand write my papers in high school and junior high. I am so thankful that we don't have to do that anymore because my grammar sucks. But on the upside if you write big enough you don't have to say much :)
