Why do I have so much homework and tests and quizzes and presentations and shits like that??? =(
Any why the hell do I always leave it till the last minute!!!
Ha. I left my AP summer homework till the day before classes began. Yup, I left three essays, three books, and 17 pages of notes until the last minute. Needless to say, I didn't actually go to sleep that night.
*sighs* you'll get used to this lack-of-sleep-due-to-procrastination. I know I have, unfortunately =\
?!?! Seriously? That's crazy. I read fast, but really if I had ever done that I would have had a mental breakdown or just gone hysterically insane and run in the other direction or something, or maybe stayed home sick to work on it all. Did you get it all done?
Haha, I had a mental breakdown that night. Not the biggest one I've ever had, but it wasn't pleasant. And then I started sobbing and I started to yell hysterically at my mother, "I'm never gonna get this done and they're gonna throw me out of AP and I'll be in the stupid classes and Darthmouth will never accept me and I'll got to some stupid community college!"
Then I threw my books and ran out of the room.
But well, that was at 7 o'clock. So, she sat me down and consoled me. Then she helped me bullshit my Silas Marner essay (FUCK THAT BOOK!). Then I did two of my other essays.
And then came AP US History. It was about 11 PM. I wrote over 5000 words and read an entire book of 400 pages. I finished at 6:00, an hour before I usually wake up.
Needless to say, when the teacher said he wasn't collecting homework until the next day, I was about ready to strangle him.
From the title of this journal, I thought you were talking about my cat. XD
But I know what you mean.... I just wrote an entire essay that I should have done a week ago. =] Just take some shortcuts.. that's what I did in High School lol.

*wincing* I don't know why you have so much academic stuff, probably because that's just how high school is for teenagers. And your not alone honey, many of us leave it all till the last minute. Like me, I have math tutor tomorrow and I've barely looked at my assignments. I have to work on it tonight, then get up early and work more tomorrow, and also take an SAT Math practice test, because I take the test again on Sat. Jeez, now I'm asking, why do I do this? Why do we all do this?
And good luck on ur tests as well. I HAVE to stop procrastinating, it's killing my sleep time (I finally got to sleep at 4am yesterday)... Maybe we should start an anti-procrastination club! As to why we do it, I guess it has to do with that fact that human brains are really bad at gauging the passage of time, and so we always think that we have all the time in the world to finish something when we actually don't.
Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
I'm so screwed.
I think the second paragraph answers the first paragraph.

You are damn right on that! I'm gonna have to do something about it...
