i got 3 As on the little midterm papers I stayed up until 6 am to write, all three on books that i barely read, and 2 of them handed in technically past the due date, for a professor who is known to be a certifiable asshole.
that’s 30% of my grade for that class.
solid A. on all of them.
"GOOD JOB HERE."
that’s what he wrote on one of them.
goodnight now everyone.
going through /tagged/procrastination on my blog

…while I’m just sitting here typing out this assignment that has a deadline that arrives in 12 hours and 45 minutes.
The highest amount of willpower I’ve demonstrated tonight thus far is the ability to force myself to write at least half of this thing single-spaced. That way, when I switch it to double-spaced about three quarters of the way through, I can watch it spring from 7 pages to about 10, and allow a few well-deserved tears of joy to slide down my cheek.
