|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
Current Mood: anxious
really really sucks >.< makes me want to bang my head against the table and go "argh!! why didn't i start this thing sooner??!!" even though i know i'll probably do the same when the next assignment/essay comes along

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!
ah really?? ok that's good to know that i can do 4 years of this XDDD i always thought ppl in university were like, super intellegent with mad work habits, good to know that procrastination hits as well XDDD

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
Lol, you know I'm doing the same as you right now this second. LOVE THE DC++ CHAT! LOVE IT!
GANBATTE! You get the lucky butt icon for inspiration. (and distraction)
CRAZY DC++!! oh yeah lol!
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!
it's so hard to get motivated enough to do anything before that last minute panick attack to get essays done >.< nothing like motivation through panick and near hysterical attacks eh? XDD ah exams....great..../: gonna die T_T

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)
XDDD omg i do the same thing!! like my f-list page, i'll refresh it every 2 minutes to see if anyone's updated, obsessed much eh? XDDD
OMG THANKS GUYS FOR RESPONDING!!! T___T i feel so much reassured, i mean i knew ppl were probably doing the same thing as me but it's nice to have them confirm it XD *sigh* let's me know that i'm still in the norm...wait...are fangirls ever in the norm in the first place? meh mada mada. anyways *hugs all around* thanks so much, i'm feeling so much more relieved

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
XDD that's a good idea but i can never bring myself to actually disconnect my net >.< need more willpower XD
