So I have to write a decent-sized paper today (right now, to be exact). 5-7 pages for my Humanities class, and it's due tomorrow. And right now I have a 92.3% in the class, so I need to do pretty well on this paper if I want an A since there's just this and the final exam left to contribute to our grades.
In spite of that knowledge, however, suddenly I "have" to check my email, go through my inbox to categorize emails and sort them into folders, answer Relief Society emails, check Google Reader again to see if anyone has posted in the last ten minutes, login to Facebook, check random people's blogs, text my husband, login to Blackboard to see what my grades are, etc. etc. etc. If I had a twitter I'd probably get on that, too. What's the weather going to be like tomorrow? Or I haven't checked our online bank account balance in a few days.... and if I were at home I'd go into the kitchen and open the fridge.
It's a little frightening when no matter how hard you attempt to motivate yourself you can't seem to do what you need to do when you really need to do what you need to do.
(Insert long sigh here.)
It's gonna be a long day and a long night and a long next day.
