You tell yourself you can’t work at home, so you load up your things, and go off to the library. Once you’re there, there’s more roadblocks, like coffee, to distract you.
Sit down, organize your books, setup your laptop. Open up your laptop and realize you can’t actually start until you have coffee. Close laptop and pick everything back up.
That’s what you get for leaving for that coffee. Now spend the next 15 minutes looking for a good enough seat to get the mojo going.
There’s all those emails you haven’t responded to yet, that you must suddenly respond to …
You told your mom you would call her back last week, and you just need to catch up on that right in this moment.
You haven’t actually started yet, but you don’t want to get started and then have to stop again.
You are about to get serious, but then you run into that classmate from that class you took together one time, and this exact moment happens to be the best time to catch up.
All of a sudden you have taken a huge interest in what’s going on outside the college bubble.
You must find the right jams to get you going. Whoops, there goes 2 hours.
Time. What is that, again?
Their presence only serves to distract you even more …
It’s 3 A.M. and you haven’t eaten in 8 hours. The words on the screen are starting to resemble rain, as you scroll up and down the page that you have no strength to read.
You look at that monitor and want to cry, but instead you get up and start dancing.
Get lost in the World Wide Web. Lose another 2 hours.
It’s 5 A.M and all of your friends are asleep.
Yes, you survived an all-nighter. Now it is time to take a delirious morning stroll through campus.
