    It happens to the best of us.

    Procrastination...

    I have a ten page paper due in about fourteen hours, and I have three written... It's going to be a long night.

    Lol. In high school I liked writing stories and stuff but this scientific stuff I had to write was so BORING. I didn't like that. Oh well...it's over. Luckily my boyfriend has done many like that so he helped me a lot! :) Good luck!! What books??

    "All the President's Men"
    Which wasn't bad, considering I loved the movie.
    And
    "Breach of Faith: The Fall of Richard Nixon"
    That one was a real sleeper. Take a look at one of the sentences I wrote for it... oh, and I only got through thirteen pages. : D
    Breach of Faith successfully managed to detail the happenings of Watergate, sounding like a mix between a textbook writer and a journalist.
    The only thing that may be a major downfall for the novel is when those who are not historians pick it up, they may find themselves turned off by the two-minutes a page read, and may find it hard to keep going when the writing gets less exciting and more monotonous.

    I fell asleep twice on the same page, so after that I quit and read a summary online. I love Watergate, but I possibly chose THE worst book out there.

    Ugh... I am glad I no longer have 10 page papers worth 50% of my mark lol

    The worst is when you have to read German novels and texts. The sentences last, no kidding, PARAGRAPHS! For one sentence!! And the verb is usually like 10 feet away from the subject.

    Ehhhh. Thanks for that. I will be trying to avoid that in the future.

    I was supposedly supposed to choose a book that had a bibliography...oops. Neither of mine do. >.<

    I'm getting there. One big part for one of the books left, then the conclusion.

    I never had that feeling because I never had any exams over 3 hours. The ones which were 3 hours I never studied so use to leave right after 15mins of start

    Regards
