I promise. I don’t know what it is about being in college but it brings out the worst in people. You typically won’t notice it at first but as soon as you get your first writing assignment, life will come at you fast. There used to be a time, which for me was back in high school, when I could get a paper assignment and wait to do it the night before. However, when I got to college, I found that some of my biggest distractions would be basic things such as eating or sleeping.
Which is fine and all because food is important but not when you have a paper due the day after and all you’ve managed to do was open up the Word doc. So how do you balance out all the distractions and getting work done? Well, first you have to remind yourself that you’ll hate yourself the next day. Believe me, nothing is worse than going to bed at 2 am and waking up four hours later to get to class because you didn’t want to do the assignment early. Not only are you going to diminish the quality of your work but you will probably look like someone ran you over with a truck. I learned that the best way is to turn off your phone, log out of all social media accounts, and focus on getting your paper done because your professor WILL definitely be able to differentiate between the “A” paper and the “C”
