I'm putting off deciding whether or not I'm going to do my optional sociology assignment. You know you're a bad procrastinator when...

U2dem, that was a cute video! Your rooms are much bigger than ours (I'm assuming you live in residence?). If I tried to do that in my room, I'd probably seriously injure myself.

Yeah our rooms are big, we have some of the nicest residences in the country, it's excellent

Last night I actually studied two hours straight...no diversions onto Blue Crack...and the test isn't until friday!! I'm going to study more tonight too! (If I get my history paper done fast enough).

I just want to get everything done before spring break next week.

Haha, from the looks of that video, it would be possible to fit two MUN rooms into one of yours. I can reach over and touch my roommate's bed if I want to. It's like living in a coffin.

You studied on Tuesday for a test that's on Friday? That's unheard of! Two days in advance is the most I ever do. And boy, does it show.

Then, you have to race two full laps around the Sem pond. If your boat sinks, you're DQed.




I might procrastinate, but I don't have THAT much time!

Now THAT is funny! And is that a cardboard paper tube I see being used as a makeshift oar? Yarrrrr!

I've done this as part of a corporate "team building" exercise. It is interesting the different designes that people come up with when building their cardboard boats.

Duct tape

some of the best stuff ever invented.


I'm supposed to be writing a history paper thats due tomorrow, but its only 3-4 pages. However, I have no idea what my thesis should be. All I know is that i'm arguing something based on John Locke's idea of human nature, but i can only use the primary source of his Second Treatise on Civil Government.

Maybe I can get away with arguing about how it influenced Thomas jefferson

Yeah, Laura, if you did this I think your video is justified!!! I wish I was able to fit in studying a week in advance.

Well considering on my last test I got a 67 I REALLY want to bring up that grade, and the class is frickin' hard. This way if I don't do well on the 2nd test I can at least tell my parents I actually tried.

Yep, same here. Except I think I've gotten to the point where the day before isn't good enough - not enough motivation/panic for me to get anything done, and I sometimes end up waiting until the morning of. Stupid, stupid, stupid, I know, but that's just the way I operate, I guess...last semester I finished two papers (not turned them in, finished them) fourteen and sixteen minutes before they were due, respectively. I got them printed out and to the professor with time to spare, but I know I'm living dangerously.

And why am I posting on here now? Because I have a 5-page midterm paper on American promotion of democracy abroad due tomorrow (in exactly thirteen hours and eight minutes, actually) that I haven't even really started on yet. WTF is wrong with me?!

I only start studying for final exams a week before they happen. Even then, it's usually only four days. Ah, the wonderful world of procrastinating and (in my case) low GPAs.
