Putting things off til the last minute?

It's going on 2am and I'm still sitting here trying to do a 2 page research paper that I have yet to start on that is due on Sunday by midnight. I can't concentrate. I'm wary about drinking coffee because I don't want to stay up all night. Any moms who are students who have study tips?

  • don't try to do homework if you are too tired, it's never its best then. Go to bed, wake up earlier than every one else, give yourself time to shower and refresh and do it before everyone wakes up.

    If it was due tomorrow that'd be a diff story, but if you have it due on sunday, I say get some shut I and do it in the morning when your mind is fresh

  • So this is what happened to you.
    I am a last minute person when it comes to some things.
    School, taxes, etc.
    At this point stick with it and get it done.
    Get off of here.
    Make a list of how you will complete it on time
    Decide what you have to do before you take a break and hold yourself to it.
    Then take your break.
    Get back at with your next deadline and so on.
    You need to make plans so this doesn't continue to happen.
    What is your paper on?

  • I have to write a paper on a cyber crime and come up with a plan on how to reduce it

  • Get some shut eye tonight and work on it tomorrow. You won't write a good paper on no sleep. Believe me I know. Good luck. I am bad about procrastinating as well.
