I considered calling out of work today, but I didn't. I thought about going into work late tomorrow, but I am not going to. Apparently, I am still not feeling the crunch of my due dates. I have a paper due tomorrow night that is about 90% done and then one due Friday by 6pm that is maybe halfway there and that is if I am kind to myself.
Now, helping my stress levels is that the one due Friday is a rough draft of sorts, but I am not a lame-ass who turns in a mediocre job just because it is not the final draft. 1) I don't do things halfway and 2) If I do a half-assed job now, then that's just more work to do later when the final draft is due. Oh, and also, we have to have these effing papers be peer reviewed and I don't want someone wondering how and why I ever made it to my last semester of grad school.
So here is my schedule pre due date:
430am: First alarm
445am: Second alarm. Get up and get ready.
545am: Leave for work.
600am: Stop at Starbucks even though I don't have the time or money.
700am: Work blah blah blah
330pm: Leave work.
400pm: Sit in traffic.
600pm: Class. Kill me.
900pm: (At the latest, I hope) Home to work on paper #2.
700am: Wake up. Curse the world. Send paper to professor because I must wait until the last possible moment.
900am: Work. Sorta.
530pm: Clock out.
630pm: *FALL FUN CELEBRATION STARTS!
Anyway, the point of all of that is I have a lot due quite soon and not enough time to complete it all. And I didn't even procrastinate with this stuff. I did research weeks ago and really, some people do their best work all at once instead of working on it a little bit at a time. With that said, I need to go to sleep. 4am is oh, FOUR HOURS AWAY! GOOD NIGHT.
*What is Fall Fun Celebration you ask? Oh, just wait...
