-You have a 15 page English Essay to write, and you've known about it for 3 months.
-You decide your topic with 2 week to go (did I mention that we weren't given a prompt to begin with. AP classes, indeed)
-You write up a thesis statement with 6 days to go.
-You begin writing the actual essay with 3 days to go.
-You go to school and brag about the massive amount of content you have while other people stress out. You laugh at them. This is a required step.
-The night before it's due, you write from page 2 to page 15.
-Turns out you only have 12 pages of content. Mess with font size, and hope you don't get caught.
-When you're finished up, you hang out on BZP for a bit, seeing if anybody's replied to your work and see that the topics haven't been touched since you last left.
-Realize that it's Midnight and that you should be asleep.
-Log of the computer and go to sleep (and hope you don't have a Zero period).
That pretty much sums up my experiences. My essay is indeed only 12 pages long (13 if you count the bibliography) but I'm not going to risk changing the font or margins... I'm sending it in via e-mail (to save trees... hey, the teacher suggested it!). I should warn you, don't try this at home unless you are a qualified procrastinator. I am indeed qualified- I bought the shirt, and I've had plenty of practice. Now I just have to hope that what I wrote actually is
quality. But why bother stressing over it? My Eagle Scout Board is in a couple of weeks... that may be something to stress about.
-Recycle, reuse, repeat.
-And listen to some good music along the way. (Tom Petty is my preference right now)
