I thought I had long cured myself of a disease I suffered from in elementary school : procrastination. Apparently not. Today was what I like to simply call "one of those days." I couldn't focus on anything, thus I have spent my evening relearning the lessons that were taught today. I would blame it on my math homework, but in all honesty I could have had that done two days ago. (I didn't miss the deadline of course; it was turned in on time). 
    Unforturnately, it caused an unnecessary blow to this morning's quiz grade in my World Literature class.
NEVER. PUT. OFF. READING. CHINUA. ACHEBE. UNTIL. THE. NIGHT. BEFORE. AND. THE. MORNING. OF!!! 
    Big mistake. Last night after I had finally completed my math homework and latest scholarship application (despite the fact that I love ALL my classes, including my algebra class, it's very hard not to blame math for any school-related troubles that occur), I read the first thirty pages of my assigned reading section, and the rest this morning. This morning, I managed to mix up the main character's son with his friend and, even worse, managed to completely confuse the main character with his father! Procrastinating is not something I typically do, especially in college. Procrastinating leads to verrrry bad days. 
    Some words of "wisdom" : 
    1. DON'T PROCRASTINATE. EVER.
    2. If you're tired and you have reading to do, drink about five glasses of tea, soda, or another caffeinated beverage so that you're lucid enough to understand (and remember what you read). Still, remember most of those This was something I did not do.
    3. Applying for scholarships is good, but unless the deadline is the next day, it can wait.
    4. Techno music (Basshunter, for example) can help you with Algebra. I don't know why, but I seem to understand my math better when I'm listening to techno.
    5. Rock music is really bad for focusing. It may help keep you awake, but you won't remember any of what you've done. Rock music causes literary amnesia.
