Steps to writing a paper:

1. Realize the scary paper is due in 7 days. Thursday.

2. Convince self that writing can't possibly begin until Monday.

3. It's Monday! Time to write that scary paper! Look at guidelines for the scary paper for the first time in three weeks.

4. Dither.

5. Get coffee.

6. Write for 20 minutes.

7. Get car from shop.

8. Visit thrift store; wow, great deals!

9. Go home, eat lunch.

10. Go to computer lab.

11. Oh yeah, I have to design a logo for myself.

12. Google images does not bring success; start playing Youtube videos for background soundtrack. If failure there be, at least it will sound awesome.

13. Oh yeah, that paper!

14. Ooo, makeup tutorials. Fun!

15. Wow. When did it get to be 2 o'clock? It's only 3000 words, this should be easy. Today's the only day I'll really have a chance to work on it, I better get started.

16. Or I could take a break and do some sewing.

17. Maybe it's time to leave the computer lab. It's impossible to get any work done here.

Heh, when I'm working on anything that's not for school this list stretches even further.

I'm halfway through the scary paper! :)

Normally I'm a bit better, but I just don't want to write about attachment theory and traumatic memory. Even if Star Trek is involved.
