I should be doing the happy dance because it's quittin' time on Friday afternoon. Instead, I am completely dreading going home because I know I have to finish my final paper of the quarter. It was actually due on Wednesday, but my professor offered us all extensions if we wanted one. I took her up on it, and now my paper is due at high noon tomorrow.
I feel completely unmotivated to finish it. So far I have about 4 pages, and it really needs to be about 10 pages. 10 pages is not a lot, especially as far as grad school papers go, but yet I feel completely blocked. I've had 1 surge of inspiration this afternoon, and now I'm back to feeling blah.
I am so incredibly burned out at this point that I have begun to wonder if I will be able to hold it together long enough to actually finish my coursework and thesis. I am feeling very discouraged right now, because I know that I can write a kick ass paper. I've done it before - why isn't it happening for me now?
Hopefully my next post will be much less whiny and much more interesting.
