An Embarrassing Moment Analysis

Improved Essays
There I was, after a painstakingly long night, clicking print and falling asleep. After the longest night of my life, I finally got some much needed rest. I had stayed up all night to finish the hardest term paper of my life. My first college semester was about to end in a disaster. I had neglected to write a ten-page term paper for my Logic. I left myself with one night to write this monstrosity. I was a foolish child; I chose to procrastinate the entire semester. For months I had known about the paper yet I chose to brush it off until the last possible moment. I got home from school the day before it was due; I had exactly sixteen hours before I had to hand the paper in. I can not explain why I still could not manage to write the paper. Ignoring all the alerts on my phone, and the awful feeling of guilt, I decided to sit down and play some video games. Video games can only satisfy me for a brief amount of time until I get hungry and require some real nutrients. Luckily, my mother had prepared a light dinner for me, and I could save time by not having to cook my own food. She made her mouthwatering barbecue chicken in a …show more content…
I grabbed some snacks from the pantry, a Naked Juice from the mini-fridge, and my headphones. I planted myself at the counter and told myself I wasn’t going anywhere until I pounded out at least five pages. I put on a Spotify playlist, designed to help you focus, and I began my work. Naked Juice’s are my version of a healthy energy drink. After about thirty minutes of working, my mother walks out of her bedroom. Now in my house, everyone except my older brother and I, is in bed, and asleep by nine o’clock, so my mother to walking out at nine-thirty was a surprise. She told me, “It’s too late for you to be up on your iPad. Go to bed.” I wasn’t about to tell her that I waited until now to write a ten-page essay, so I simply said, “Yes ma’am,” and went to

    Last semester was definitely the hardest for me. I have two challenging research papers toward the end of the semester. I find it hard because I did not know what to write about and which assignments I should start on first. I manage to overcome this challenge by narrowing the topics and start on the paper that was closest to deadline. My stress level was at 10 because I skip meals and stayed up all night long to finish my papers.…

    Never was it in my plan to fall this far behind in my academic plan for graduating college. In fall of 2013 I started going to UIC to pursue my major, in the summer of 2014 I was raped by someone that I was close to and at the time I was not comfortable sharing it with anyone. After holding in my pain for so long I started to fall behind in my classes and nothing was getting better, no matter how hard I studied.

    After vacuuming up all visible ladybugs, the three of us (Me, Emma, and Madi) played guitar hero on their wii for a few hours after we got home from church. At that point, I was still feeling pretty good, tired, but not too tired. I was doing okay, but then Emma and Madi both got tired and went to bed. I was all alone with nothing to do, and I couldn’t think of anything to watch on netflix. I spent an hour flipping through TV shows and movies, looking for something to watch and fighting to stay awake.…

    After my personal hygiene, I rushed up upstair for breakfast before leaving for my writing class starts at 8:00 am. I ate a small disk of sweet sour pork with a bowl of rice that my mom prepared the night before. My life could have been full of depressed without my mom; she has the answers to everything, like where to find my brand new pair of puma shoes, the TV remote, or even how to cure my hiccups, etc.. When I was young, I was stubborn and a sly kid. I would execute my mom’s requests under her presence, but I 'd rather find a way to get away with it when she was not there.…

    Not that I don’t eat hot food at home every day, but it’s somehow different. After having my delicious breakfast, I felt very tired since I didn’t sleep the night before the flight. By doing so, I believed I could sleep deeply on board. I was up for more than twenty four hours at the time, so I asked the flight attendant for a blanket, earplugs and an eye mask to avoid any contact with my giant neighbor. Hoping that I 'd wake up alive, I stayed up for about an hour before I finally went to…
