Homework on the Weekend

| November 13, 2011

Let me just preface this post by saying that 45 minutes ago, I opened a new Word document, titled it, dated it and then went on Tumblr for over half an hour. Why does the Internet have so many wonderfully distracting websites for me to waste time using?

As Thanksgiving approaches, the work just keeps piling up and my motivation keeps getting worse. Between Facebook stalking, discovering Tumblr and Pinterest, Tweeting, skyping friends abroad and discovering that I can now watch Vampire Diaries on Netflix, my productivity is shot.

Not gonna lie, I just got distracted by Facebook for 20 minutes.

So you won’t be shocked to hear that I haven’t done much in terms of schoolwork this weekend. I spent Friday interviewing for two internships for the spring (and scored one!), watching some good ‘ole Vampire Diaries, and going to the Foo Fighters concert at Verizon Center. Exciting, right?

Naturally, I woke up at noon on Saturday (which is actually very uncharacteristic of me), watched some more Vampire Diaries (noticing a pattern?), skyped for two hours, finally left my dorm at five p.m., went to see the Wizard of Oz for the girl I babysit, and went to bed by midnight. I’m just overachieving all over the place, right?

So, having done absolutely no homework for the majority of the weekend, I woke up early this morning to get to the library. BUT, I also went to breakfast with a friend for 2 hours – 2 hours of productivity I’ll never get back.

But, you know what? I’m not stressing. I still have the entire day. I’ve finished everything that’s due tomorrow. So, here’s my advice for the week: it’s great to get ahead on your work, but if you don’t need to spend the entire weekend doing homework, then don’t.

If I thought I needed to be in the library all day long today, I probably would’ve started doing work Friday afternoon. But I’m pretty good at anticipating my workload and staying in my dorm for the majority of the day yesterday just happened to fit into my schedule. Sue me.

So, if you don’t mind – and don’t judge – I’m going to leave the library as soon as I post this blog entry, shower, watch some Vampire Diaries, go to my chapter meeting, do a bit more work and go to sleep at a decent hour.

Happy studying!
