    I wrote an essay summary for an as yet unwritten essay and a full essay yesterday and still have one more essay to write that is due tonight. I hate that I am such a procrastinator, but so far I am sitting with 90% in this class after 3 essays, all of which were written on the day they were due. I realise I am one of those who tends to do some of my best work under pressure, but I really hate that feeling of pressure and walking that very fine line between last minute, but doable and too late and impossible.

    Feller is exactly the same- always producing at the last minute. What a pair we are.

    Anyway, I just needed to take a minute to get that off my chest so I can focus on my last essay.

    Tomorrow is French test and homework panic!

    Thank goodness there are only about 4 weeks left of class and then I get my 2 weeks in off-grid paradise.

    Gee, thanks "mum".

    This one is only worth 5% of my final grade and I am seriously considering blowing it off. The reading involved for it is very dry and I am having a hard time keeping my focus.

    We're exactly the same way. Hence the name "11th hour furniture" [​IMG]

    Good luck- you can get it done [​IMG]

    You say all these things and how you need a lot of work to do, yet you're posting on BYC!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] Get to work!!! [​IMG] LOL I sometimes do the same thing. But only when I have a lot to do and not enough time.

    Good luck! Next week is Thanksgiving break! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah, but it was a pretty quick post. I am on my last paragraph. Just struggling a bit with the wording for my final sentence.


    I already had thanksgiving last month (we Canadians like a bit of a break between turkey feasts [​IMG] ), so no break for me now until the middle of December.

    Done!

    Thanks for all the support. I think it did help to just make the post and then the thought was completely off my mind and invading the minds of others.

    Time for a nice cup of tea.
