I've always been that kid. You know, the kid who actually enjoyed her home work? Who did a little extra on her assignments even though it wasn't required? Yup. I'm that girl.

But about two weeks ago I was working upon another assignment and accidentally wrote over a journal for my U.S. Government class that was to be an eight weeks worth collection of essay's, answers to questions, and so on. The whole thing was gone! Gone before my very eyes! Five weeks worth of work totally completely gone! Poof! No more. Nada. I cried. I actually cried.

It's week eight, my journal is due today, and I've been up all night rewriting the whole thing. The whole damn thing.

Oh my gosh! [Eek!]
The same exact thing happened to that other crew girl!
I think you two would have really hit it off.

No. Way. I though I'd gone mental when it happened. Thank God I'm not the only one. That makes me feel better.

There must be a lot of rowers here then hu? People keep mentioning it to me, which I don't mind, I love it, but I'm only in my third season of it. [Smile]

I guess that teaches one to procrastinate because either way you have to stay up the night before somethings due wrecklessly trying to finnish. Personally, I think my procrastination taught me to work well under a dealine. Now, at work, in the real world, I can kick @$$ compared to those students who did thier homework before they went out to play. They spend thier time whining they don't have enough time and I get things done.
