I told the roomie that I had a paper to write... but he KEEPS talking! Why? I don't really care about the superficial problems of a 19-year-old. At least... Not now. I've got a paper due in 11 hours. Argh.

Procrastination

So it's 3:38 and the paper *still* isn't done. It's only five pages... And, by golly, I do have the ability to put words together with some sort of order & purpose. So why is the paper not done yet? Well, because it's about bloody El Nino. And I don't know much about El Nino. And I've found that a suprising number of authors and textbooks share my knowledge.

Fletch, if you don't finish the paper... You. Will. Not. Graduate.
Okay... Maybe I'm motivated now. Okay... nah.

Well, Zack & A.C. Slater just saved The Max on Saved By The Bell and I just finished the paper. Whew. It's not as good as it should be (duh). It's not as long as it should be (no suprise there, either). But it's done. And hopefully, this will help me pass the class & graduate.

I was wrong (insert gasp here)

Well, the paper *was* long enough afterall. I was unsure this morning because I was using Windows' WordPad instead of a real, live grown-up word processor... And WordPad doesn't allow for double spacing. So I just wrote until I thought I had enough. It seems that I stopped at a good point and filled up five pages exactly.

I know that is sounds petty to fret over a tookie five-page paper... Especially when I know a guy who is in the middle of writing two 20-page papers that are 3,000 times more in-depth. Yet, so much was riding on me getting it done and done well. And I had a terrible time putting the blinders on and focusing on writing it.

Well, enough about that. Tonight will be my last night at the school paper. This is the final edition for me. No more. Then end of the road. Even if I do fail weather class and have to come back. I'm done with the paper. Of course, I can't celebrate too much. I've got a potentially tricky journalism management test tomorrow at 8 and an American Cinema final tomorrow night. ::sigh::
