We're going down we're going down we're going dooown

Points to whomever gets this one.

Don't even ask me how it's going on the Collections Management essay. So far I have about 1400 words, which would be great except for the part where only about 300 of them are actually mine. The rest is just stuff I've pasted in from sources. Hoo boy.

What would be great is a tragedy or natural disaster or illness so that I could get an extension on this one, because man I am having a hard time focusing. Here's what I have been doing instead:

  • Trimming split ends off my hair
  • Writing a CV which I have to mail out tomorrow for a job I will not get
  • Listening to Savannah read me No David! and the Charlie & Lola book I got her, at which point my ovaries started digging their elbows into me and muttering mean stuff about how I never let them do anything good.
  • Almost eating deli-sliced roast beef that had gone bad but the smell stopped me in time. I swear England, does all your food have to be so dang fresh all the time?
  • Talking to my dad and my sister on G-talk
  • Pondering the Futility of it All

Sounds like your being more productive cutting split ends off your hair.

I used to wish that the testing center at the Y would self combust into flames so that I would not have to take tests. I never got my wish. Sorry, darling, but I don't think you're going to get an extension.

Did I ever tell you about that time I was sitting in a hottub with friends talking about how behind I was in school and how I wished I would break an arm or something so I would have more time and not even 15 minutes later I fell down and broke my arm? Yeah, that really happened.

So, are you okay? Has anything happened to you?

Oh hurray for French Kiss! On a positive note: You can do it! You really, really can!

If it helps, I'm in the same boat. Except I'm doing the grading instead of the assignments. Good luck!

For what it's worth, I always wish for sudden illness to give me more time on end-of-term assignments, too, but I have found that without the sudden illness, I always manage to get the assignment done on time. And then I realize that if I had had the sudden illness, not only would I be sick/hurt, but I would still have the assigment to complete. Good luck; you'll make it.

Sheesh. It's, like, from every plane crash I've ever been in.

Okay, I am with you here 100%. I have about 6 very ugly things I am putting off and it keeps getting worse. So what I do is put them all on a list and then do them all as fast as I can and then reward myself with something very big at the end. Only usually I am out of time and money and energy to reward myself and just am glad all the dirty deeds are over. Then I just relax, and eat something very bad for me, like a couple of candy bars, and think, "yeah, I'm bad, I can do it all. Hah ha to everyone else who can't."

Or seriously call cooldad and have a nervous breakdown and he takes care of them for me. Maybe cooldad would finish your paper for you.

There was this one time when I was failing college algebra for the second time. Only then I got mono and my teacher (the grad student that graded our tests I should say, he didn't actually teach anything EVER) took pity on me and gave me a D and I passed the class.

That was awesome.

Sweet sweet sister of mine. Do your professors accept bribes? There probably isnt time for a blackmail campaign. But about the bribes, I can offer you a high interest loan. I know youre good for it. Good Luck sweatheart. We pray for you. That should make everything better.
