Kid: So, for the definition, do you want us to, like, write it what means?
Me: (Staring, not sure what to answer). . . Ummm…..yes.
Me (Looking over a student’s oration): This day and age is a cliche.
Kid: What does that mean?
Me: It means that people say it all the time.
Kid (indignantly): But I only used it once!
If there ever was a “go time” in my life, it’s right now. I paid my graduation fee yesterday, which means I MUST take the MA exam in March, and I MUST write three papers (before May!). Looking at the weeks ahead with Forensics season starting, a forensics meet to host (my first meet by myself!), and FCA activities, I’ll have no choice but to schedule every single free minute I have as “study time.” Or “writing time.”
Ugh. If only I’d written more papers as I went! I don’t know any fellow classmates who didn’t struggle getting papers finished. I guess the good thing about it all (and the cure to anyone whose ailment is procrastination) is that the $50 and the pressure will force me to get it finished. Right?
It’s go time!!
