Procrastination 101

by

I’m trapped in Midterm Limbo.

Two weeks ago it was physics. Last week was health. Yesterday I had a chemistry midterm, and next week is religious studies.

I’m surrounded by tests.

I’m stuck in that special kind of inertia where reading another chapter of my textbook is the last thing I want to do, but I’d feel too guilty to play my Nintendo DS, or read anything even remotely interesting.

I keep telling myself that a month from now, classes will be over. There won’t be any more labs, assignments, tutorials, or quizzes. Midterms will be a thing of the past.

But a month is sooooooooooooooooooooo long.
