How Not To Finish a Research Paper

1. Eat chili and poultry at school, knowing that neither will agree with your stomach.

2. When you're not feeling well, lie down with a cup of tea and watch a 45 minute episode of Castle.

3. When you start to feel better, go to your computer and watch Whose Line Is It Anyway on YouTube.

4. Get leftover pumpkin pie and apple juice to "motivate" yourself.

5. After you've finally got the courage to open the word document, format the heck out of the paper in order to make yourself feel as though you've accomplished something.

6. Download music off iTunes. I haven't quite figured out why, yet...

7. Even after remembering that you have to give a 5-10 minute talk on your paper (in a mere 12 hours), you should definitely blog about your misadventures until you start to feel that "crunch" time...

....which doesn't usually kick in until 11 o'clock pm.
