*sigh* I really should be more diligent as far as my school work goes. Every semester I tell myself that I'm going to keep up with my work and not slack off by spending who-knows-how-many-hours a day reading fanfic, but somehow I always find myself in the same position come the end of the semester: Screwed.
Take right now, for example. I have 3 weeks of classes left and then 2 weeks of finals. I have a 2000 word position paper on Natural Law due tomorrow (it's about 3/4 the way done), 2000 words on the great depression for my macroecon class due on Friday, a 3000 word research paper on Samsung electronics and a 2000 essay for literature both due the Friday of next week. I have not started any of the papers other than what is due tomorrow. On top of it all I have finals coming up in the near future and I feel like i've done nothing in my classes all semester. Some of the finals will be okay, I think, but some (like Natural Law and Econ) are going to be downright painful.
Why do I do this to myself? I know that life would be much easier if I just did the work as I was supposed to. I'm a student...I go to university...It's my JOB to learn and whatnot...if I don't like doing this stuff then I shouldn't be here. On top of that I'm paying some ridiculous $40,000 a year to do this, so I'd better actually learn something. Do you realize how much I throw away every time I skip a class? (not that I do it that often!) Gah!
Anyways, I'm going to go now, and hopefully finish this essay before my brain is completely fried. I haven't even looked at the macro work I need to do for tomorrow. I'll be doing that in the 3 hours I have between the lecture and the tutorial!
I'd bet you anything that come the beginning of next semester I'll be telling myself that I'm going to be better and keep up...but will it happen? I doubt it.
