Phase II: Bib-Trad paper. Write paper using what sources I scrounge up. Take short break to go to Cove with a friend (by short break I mean <= 30 minutes or so), who is mad about not being able to have meat in the commons on Ash Wednesday, an issue which I’ll explore sometime after the persuasion test on Friday. Tomorrow is Phase III, which is a bit relaxed early-on, and Friday is Phase IV, or Phase Try-Not-to-Die-From-Persuasion-Midterm. Once the plan is complete, I’m less bogged down and only need to implement the neverending Phase [n in Roman Numerals]: establish better study habits.
k-po said: distractions....hmmm. what can we do to help you stay focused on the #1 priority and then work down the list to the least of the priorities. i could come and visit you and act real weird and scare all your friends away so they will leave you alone and then you can study.
Please don’t.And remember that it could backfire on you like when you visited at DLSNC. My friends might actually like you. Again.
if you would just get your work done first you would see that you will actually have MORE time for socializing. But we live in a society where we want what we want and we want it RIGHT NOW. Instant gratification. What you think you want right now and give in to will bite you in the butt later when you are up late, tired and scrambling to get homework done. Then you are kicking yourself about the choice you made to par-tay your studying/sleeping hours away.
There is always time and there is always someone to talk to. There is not always time to get your work done.
True, true. That’s part of the reason I always try not to put stuff off till the due day (exception: Bib-Trad editing is happening tomorrow, but unless I discover I wrote a total crock of a paper in the morning that won’t be an issue.) Once you go to sleep, you really cut down on the time you have. And yes, I know that’s not the point.
If you get your work done you will be less stressed in those social situations and will be able to enjoy them more because you are not thinking about all the HOMEWORK you need to be doing in the quiet of your OWN room - not at the cova, cova cabana where there are TOO many distractions. and what about the women. what is going on there. hopefully nothing because that is the biggest distraction and biggest time waster. i know. i am one :P)love you. now get to work!!!!!!
Okay. (Sometimes I do leave the Cove to go to Christie’s study rooms, but that’s more an issue of lateness than anything else. Why not my room? My roommate is a light sleeper.
