Nothing Like the Last Minute

I'm pretty sure Grandy has mentioned that she is taking a I'll get to it when I can self-study course. I had signed up for it quite a while ago, and then had my lovely health matters. It got put on the back burner.

Well, Grandy has received a letter indicating that I need to get this whole section done by July 7th. See that picture up there? Yep, that's a whole section. Just one binder...all the books fit in one and each binder is a section.

How many books are in this section? 8
+
How many books has Grandy so far completed? 3
+
How LONG do they give you to complete each book? 30 days
=
Grandy is HOSED!!!

Yep...Grandy feels A.L.I.V.E. as she is forced to recall her cram sessions in college. It's been a while, and we have to leave town this week to go pack up Grandma's house, but Grandy is determined to get it done.

Anybody got any cliff notes to "Pleadings and Practice"? No? Oh well...back to studying.

Any other last-minute Charlie's out there? I know there must be. Why don't you de-lurk and share your story. I promise to come back and respond...because let's face it...I'd rather be here anyway and I'm always looking for a way to get out of this.

Sorry. Just hearing you talk about it is giving me a panic attack. But good luck!

I must admit, that I...am...a procrastinator who actually believes that she does her best work under pressure!!! It hasn't failed me yet...so it must be true!! I am the queen of the "drop back 5 yards and punt" philosophy of doing things...again...I'm lucky because this almost always works for me (knock on wood!).
I say...grab your books...go to Denny's (or somewhere else with a "drink coffee 'til you're seeing double" deal) and dig in!!!
I'm there with you in spirit!!!
Go Grandy Go!!!

Lol, Grandy, I so feel for you! I am the world's biggest procrastinator (you would not believe the crap that I have done in procrastinating!)......it is my greatest flaw!

That said, you CAN do this! Just do it, and we will all be so inspired and proud of you when it's done!

Oh man, so sorry to hear. Wanna hear my last minute story?....Freshman year through college-

Coffee+ coffee+ coffee+ coke+ pepsi+ mountain dew+ 2 Vivarin + no sleep for 30 hours = 20 page term papers spell checked and printed out 1 hour before class.

What? Some of my best work was created under pressure ;)

wrekehavoc said...

eastcoastlife said...

Do you still have time for blogging, surfing and commenting!? Gosh.

Hit the books, grandy!

Do I sound like your Mom? hehehe....
Pardon me, I have several kids in my house and I have to nag them every day.

Appoint me your official nagger and I will come to check on you daily. wahahahaha.....

Procrastination is my middle name. I wish I could say that my best work is done under pressure, but unfortunately that's not true. The stress gets the best of me. But, I have faith, Grandy that you will get all of the work done! Because you are a strong and brilliant woman. Not to mention the fact you have a wonderful support system in your husband, son, family and friends. Sending all sorts of positive thoughts your way. :-)

Travis said...

Hang in there! Pace yourself as well as you can and try not to let it overwhelm you.

Tina Coruth said...

Wow - that's a big pile of books! Everyone has already given you all the suggestions I can think of. I especially agree with Travis' advice. Good luck - you know we are all rooting for you!
