Perhaps there is nothing more frightening than staring at a blank word document wondering how you are going to fill a few pages for an assignment that is due tomorrow. Well actually that's not true. There is something more frightening: when the water in the toilet starts to rise after flushing. Then you know you are in trouble. I promised myself I would write my paper at work today. So far I've pulled out the assignment sheet. But, I do have 4 hours left at work so I'm hoping that I'll get it done. For some reason I feel like I work better when I wait until the last minute to do things. I can't do the whole "get it done early" thing. That just doesn't work for me. I'd rather think about doing it for a week and then wait until 10 o'clock the night before it's due and freak out because I haven't started on it. That's how I roll...
Update: I have 2 hours left at work and only one section of my paper left. Oh yeah!
Update updated: I finished my paper and I had 30 minutes to spare! Yes, I took the occasional break to look at celeb gossip. And yes I got distracted when I started thinking about the season premiere of LOST that comes on tonight. But alas, I have finished the paper. Well except for editing it. I never said I was going to edit it at work. I just said I'd write it.

I was talking to my friend Kiri one day online and asked her why people start blogs. She informed me that it's a way for people to share their personal drama with other people when other people could really care less. So I thought since I'm so busy with life right now and always complain that I never have enough time that maybe I should start a blog and unnecessarily add something else to my life to waste time. I have no idea who will read this blog. I actually think it's dumb when people have a link to their blog on facebook, but inevitably one will be placed on my facebook page. I don't really have any great insights on life. Although I thought that what I came up with as the URL for this blog was pretty clever. I would actually bet that within a week I will delete this blog. Why? you ask. Because I'm really busy and don't need something else to waste my time.
