Homework Is My Life

Homework has always been a priority over writing. I wish it wasn’t, but you know… deadlines. I have a week to do my assignments and I don’t have any deadlines for my writing. Except for NaNo months, but… 30 days is more than seven days. So, again, homework wins.


I did really well this morning! I woke up and got an hour and a half in of homework before I went to work. Then I came home from work, did a little more homework for about two hours and viola!

I completed all my assignments for two out of my four classes for this week. For my psych class I have to work on my project (which won’t take long at all) and take a quiz (which takes 15 minutes, but he doesn’t open the quizzes until Thursday so I can’t do it yet). For my Rowling & Tolkien class I need to critique two essays for the two classmates in my group. Again, that shouldn’t take long. I can finish all that (except the quiz) tomorrow morning and after work.

I also have to do the final draft of my Harry Potter essay and do the final draft of the first chapter of Detective Florence (which I sent in for my project in my Fiction class for feedback). Those aren’t due for another two weeks, though. I plan on slowly working on them this week to get them out of the way, but once the homework that’s due this Sunday is completed I am going to take the time to write! Writing will take priority over homework for that time being.

I didn’t write today and probably won’t get a chance tomorrow, but I can write from Wednesday all the way through next week. Next week I don’t have school and only have two and a half days of work because of Thanksgiving.

It’s like a NaNo jackpot!

    1. But I finished it all today! Which is the fastest I’ve ever done in my life… a week’s worth of assignments for four classes done in two days. I’m tired, lol.

      1. What?! You continue to blow me away. Since you don’t have homework, would you consider doing my paper for me? 😉 Oh no, why do I get the sense that you haven’t been sleeping as much as you should be? Rest up Rachel.

      2. No, I don’t think I could handle another paper!

        I’ve actually been sleeping well… I’ve been going to bed at nine and getting up at five. I like getting up early because I work better in the morning, but nine is pretty early for me to go to bed.

      3. Aha, it’s just 2,000 words. 😉

        That’s good to hear. I work well in the morning as well. By nighttime, I’m exhausted. At least, you don’t have homework to worry about for a few days. Perhaps you can sleep even more? 😀

      4. 2,000 words isn’t that bad actually.

        With my job, I am way too exhausted by the time I get home! I get out at 2:30 in the afternoon, too…

        I may or may not sleep more. I want to use these mornings for writing. 🙂

      5. It’ll probably be 4,000 words by the time I’m done. 😉

        Aw, I hope you retire early so you can spend more time writing!

        Sounds good. As long as you’re writing and enjoying yourself.

      6. I hope that once a few novels gets published it’ll be good enough to pay the bills and I can write full-time. I love my job, but I think I would rather be writing all day.

Let me know what you think!
