Mondays…

The week hasn’t even started yet and already today has been a write off. I got an essay due on Thursday and I was planning on starting it tonight but that didn’t really happen.  I’ll tell you why.  

First off, I can’t sleep these days and so I went to bed last night at around 12ish or so but didn’t fall asleep until around 5ish.  I ended up watching a movie on TV and it was only then that finally sleep came to me.  And then, I got up at 1 in the afternoon.  I could have slept more but my mom woke me up.  Mondays are bad for me because I only have one late afternoon class.  I should be going to this class, especially now given that the semester is almost over.  But not today.  I miss the one and only class I have.  So then I get onto campus at around 5ish in the evening, fully intending to work on my essay; gathering sources, reading them over and coming up with a rough outline of what will write, etc.  After briefly socialising with some friends, I went to the top floor of the library and sat in a cubicle.  I started off slowly but eventually began collecting sources, books and journal articles.  Since then, It has gone downhill from there.  

I’ve been on facebook for the last like three hours.  I’ve been listening to the same song for that long as well.  I’ve been talking on the phone, chatting on MSN and looking up useless stuff on the net.  And now the library tower is about to close in 45 minutes and I am too tired (even though I literally did nothing today) to begin studying.  

The worst part is, there is a free concert on campus tomorrow that I fully intend to attend that interfers with my prime studying time.  So tomorrow is another potential write off day.  So that leaves me only Wednesday to really begin this paper, write it and finish it if I plan on handing it on time on Thursday.  

I have two options here.  One, I can work really hard and get as much done as possible by Thursday, regardless of what time of day it is or Two, I can ask the prof for an extension.  

Hmmm….what to do; what to do?
