I should be re-drafting my essay on how The Colour of Magic fits into the fantasy genre and what stereotypes it follows.

Just write that Terry Pratchett ripped his style directly from Douglas Adams. You'll get an A.

Getting things done for work. I have a list of 4-5 things I really, really need to get done today. Instead I have screwed around on the internet all morning. I can't concentrate at all. All I can think about is getting out of here for the weekend, and the fact I will spend another Friday night of my 20s at home, drinking by myself.

I should be studying like a madman so I can keep up in Japanese tomorrow. Alternatively, studying like a madman so I can pass a chemistry quiz on Tuesday. Alternatively alternatively, finishing Slaughterhouse-Five so I can discuss it next weekend at the university president's book club.

Doing my homework assignments, which I think I could do all of today if I just sit down and grind it out.

And studying for my linear algebra midterm on Wednesday. But I'm not too worried because the teacher's been going so slow we've only covered one chapter so far.

Finishing reading Heart of Darkness for my Lit class, but I'm really not in the mood to sit down and dedicate the energy to reading it closely...

I should also probably start writing essays for the Presidential Scholar Program... I just feel so intimidated by the program; there is no way I can compete with some of the people who will be up for this. I don't really have much quantifiable traits that stand out, and don't know how to really approach this in a way that puts me on even ground with everyone else.

I should be "comparing and contrasting the effect of liberation on the characters of Lopakhin and Firs" in Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard. Instead I'm... here. Not that there's a problem with here, but this post certainly won't get me any closer to an A.

Writing a little over four more pages for my User Requirements document for my Intro to Software Engineering class. I think I'm doing okay, as I still have a lot to write about, but I'm worried I'm going to miss something and that my professor will give me a bad grade anyway. (And I want an A in this class so I can have had all A's or A-'s for my lower-division Information and Computer Science classes). That, and it's very, very tedious.

*Sigh,* I guess I should get back to work. :(

If you would have told me that a week earlier it could be done, but you will have to lower your expectations to 'Unnatural Selection.' Oddly enough, my last post in this thread still holds true. I would add an anecdote on procrastination, but I will do it later instead.

8 page paper due at 11 am tomorrow. Currently 3 pages are written and the rest is outlined. It is on theology and I only need the Bible as a resource, so that's good. What's bad is I spent 3 hours today purely on procrastination. Dammit.

I noticed a pattern in the textured wall next to me that looks like a mutant hermit crab riding Kentucky past the moon. I stared at it... That pushed me over the edge and I came here to admit I have a problem... That'll help solve it, right? OK, back to writing...
