01:10 am - This is getting a little ridiculous...
Is it really really bad of me to leave my 10 page term paper (double spaced, so 5 pgs single) to the night before it's due and pull an all-nighter on it? It's worth 40% of my mark <.< This is probably a habit I should get out of *sigh* But I can't seem to pull it together, I'd write a few sentences, then check lj, or hotmail, or fanfic sites, or watch a few minutes of anime/live action/tenimyu; then write a few more sentences, then check lj/hotmail/fanfic/anime/live action/tenimyu again and repeat >.< I just can't sit and write it all out in one go no matter how much I try. Is it really my fault since all of them are open in my little toolbar on the bottom here and a click is all it takes to distract me? Well I guess it is my fault, but I mean come on!! You can't seriously expect me to compare to us to the days before internet/compute.

Please tell me other people are doing this too, please!! Anyone?! Everyone?! People on my f-list please tell me at least some of you are finding the exact same thing when it comes to essays and assignments!! =T__T= I thought I had fairly good work habits in high school but my self esteem's plunging these days because of these darn essays and my lack of ability to get them done within a decent time range.  And it's like, now when I get an essay assignment I've already decided to do it at the last minute instead of even trying to do it a bit at a time.  *sigh* Can I really make it through 4 years of University doing this??

Hey,Koneko, relax. You are not the only one. I have my final next month, I am constantly on my LJ or visiting other LJs. Worst I been having this terrible pain for a month (Nobody seen to know what's wrong with me). I feel liked I'm gonna die soon. But I must get my MBA. So now I go for the 'cold treatment', ie. LJ for a hour, then hit the books. Yeah, you can make thru' 4 years of University. I was liked you, maybe worst but I got my degree. So, if I can, You can too! Just go for the COLD TREATMENT! Good luck! Ganbare Yo!

You know, the thing about LJ is that you get suck into it. It's likes you have to login every min & when you're in, you stay there for good. Not all in university are super brainy... well have fun in your university life. Stay cool, stay calm, stay logon to LJ! :P

yup, and it's not limited to assignments/essays, it's even for online article readings, and EVEN WHEN I READ THE TEXTBOOK XO!!
(I'd always have my laptop on and in front of me)

sometimes when it's too stressful, I even allocate my time such that checking stuff online is a "reward" for doing certain tasks, e.g., finishing up one essay paragraph...

man, I'm so sad >_< you think if we overdose ourselves with LJ/tenimyu/whatever distracts us we'll get sick of it..??

XDD overdose?? wow i actually never thought of that...hmm........we should try it, take one month out of summer v. and do nothing but Lj/tenimyu/anime/whatever and see XDDDDD we either 1) overdose, 2)go blind from staring at the computer screen, or 3)have the best summer ever....i'm thinking 2 or 3 XDD

LJ is hell to my marks. I left my History essay to 2:30AM on Tuesday morning... it was due at 3:30 that afternoon. -_-
I try to get stuff done beforehand... that way it's not superly shitty or anything when I hand it in (such as my last English essay), but there are SO many better thigns to be doing other than writing essays and junk.

I will tell you though... don't leave exam studying until the last minute. *shakes head* Don't do it... absolutely not. Start now. It's a pain, I know, but seriously... trying to cram two-three months worth of infomation into your head the night before does not work! Tried and true. Nothing worse than failing an exam!

ohhhhh yeah

like, my 10 hr vector assignment is 4 days overdue and i haven't started...

vectors = computers = opening computer = LJ

i really wish LJ will go down or something, but I know that instead of doing my work I'll just keep refreshing the error page (probably)

I have a wireless internet router, so I unplug it whenever I want to crack down and get some work done. It's either me or my parents doing that. XD
