    I've got one more paper to write for a class that I have an A in right now. If I completely suck at it, I'll pass with a B.

    Time for the Dark Brotherhood quests.

    Nice.

    I lost my assassins note, so i have to find another one...

    I got the bookcase glitch, where i put my books in, and they NEVER appear, and i can't active the bookcase. Kind of a piss off.

    No, it's the house in Whiterun.

    And I finished the essay. It wasn't even an essay; more of a reflection on my teaching philosophies. I should've talked about bringing corporal punishment back, cause these little kids are becoming snotty little pukes.

    It's also due in TWO days, thank you very much. However, i found out about it two weeks ago..

    I usually do mine the day it's due. 4 or 5 hours of panic and a bunch of misery about how it turns out.





    .....and then I get an A on the fershnicket thing. Need to get slammed on one.....maybe that'll break me out of this (30 year old) habit.

    Instead, maybe you should just find a school that doesn't require a 30-year enrollment ;)

  15. Mr. Kroger: two C's, two D's and an F. That's a 1.2 grade average. Congratulations, Kroger. You're at the top of the Delta pledge class. Mr. Dorfman?

    Flounder: Hello!

    Zero point two... Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son. Mr. Hoover, president of Delta house? One point six; four C's and an F. A fine example you set! Daniel Simpson Day... HAS no grade point average. All courses incomplete. Mr. Blu - MR. BLUTARSKY... ZERO POINT ZERO.
     
  16. I am killing time right now instead of writing a report. The good news? I have written 1200 words so far today. The bad news? I have another 3000 or so to go, including reading several other reports and including summaries in this report. I am not going to be sleeping much for the next few days.

    I usually think about my essays for at least 3 or 4 days then I write them all at once, even if it takes 20 hours. That's what works best for me. The dissertations that I have done were in the same manner, one chapter at time after lots of thought.

    Got my 5 page paper done in 2 hours today. That's a best for me so far. Of course it was a topic I really cared about instead of the usual bs I write for college papers, but oh well.

    I have a 2 page paper due at 11. Think I will read up on my Cracked first. I can use a full MLA header, so it ain't no thang.

    Got my term task-thingy a few hours ago. Just got home, jumped to TB for a quick overlook. Putting off stuff is great. I'd rather take 10 more minutes than delving into oh-so-interesting points of how pre-marriage claims for assets one spouse has been a part of increasing the value of impacts post-marriage sharing of assets.
