The problem is that I did not remember this advice when, on Thursday night, I told myself that I could split up the report into reasonable chunks to do on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and sat down to read Game of Thrones. "I'll finish the methods and intro on Friday, do the figures and results after the gymnastics team CPW event on Saturday, and then finish up with the discussion section and abstract on Sunday. That way I only have to proofread on Monday before I turn it in." That's what I told myself on Thursday.
Friday night rolled around and I buckled down to finish the methods section. But being the master of distraction that I am, I got wrapped up in last-minute planing for the CPW event. By the time I realized what I was doing it was clear that I had a choice between writing the introduction and sleeping enough. I chose sleep. I would need to be fully awake in order to impress the pre-frosh into joining the gymnastics team. (Note: you should all join the team!)
