Another late night

Another night facing down the dreaded history paper. My laptop is sitting on the bed across the room with the document staring me down. Luckily I have finished the summary of the article and my opinion of it. Now I have to analyze it. I have written a page and a half and I need to write at least two and a half more pages.

It is now 1:11 in the morning. This paper is due at 11:00 tomorrow... well technically today. Yes, I am the winner at procrastination.

Ok, so... I am going to go work on it now, but I will leave this post open and keep you updated on how I'm doing. You know how in the old days when people wrote letters to each other, they would write the letter over several days before sending it? Well this is kind of like that, except on the internet, and with minutes instead of days, and I really don't have anything important to say. Luckily I don't have to pay for postage either.

I now have almost another page completed. It is very poorly written. I will look it over in the morning after I have consumed coffee and I may be able to make it better.

Just to keep things interesting, every time I jump back on here to continue my lengthy and rambling post I will say something new and rather random. Let me think of something.

It is very late.

No wait, I already said that.

Today at work (the library) I saw a lady standing at the catalogue computer on one leg. She had her other foot up on her knee and she was balanced like that while she used the computer. In Tae Kwon Do that is called the "crane stance" and it is actually surprisingly fun to do (Although I probably wouldn't stand like that just for fun while I was using a computer in the library.) Kevin (my brother) and I used to stand in a crane stance and see who could stay there the longest. It took awhile for either of us to fall.

Looking at my last paragraph, I seem to be fond of parenthesis. (I do like parenthetical remarks.)

I almost just fell asleep. Fortunately I am almost done. I have begun on the third page. The paper must be 3-5 pages long. I'm close. If I can just write a little bit more, I will be able to finish the rest in the morning.

It's time for another interesting fact.

I am considering a haircut. My hair has gotten really long, and I like it a lot, but it's inconvinient. It blows around and gets in my face and gets caught in the car door... I shut it in the car door twice today. I don't recommend it. Make sure your hair is out of the way when you shut the door.
So I was thinking about cutting it to shoulder length with maybe a few layers and some sweeping bangs. I also want to dye my hair (with henna dye, which is non-toxic) but I am not sure when/if that will happen. If I ever do dye it, I will go with sort of a dusty red/auburn color.

I am fully aware of the fact that that number right up there above this section means that I have been awake for two hours and eighteen minutes past midnight.

Midnight + two more hours + eighteen minutes = tired.

There is only about half a page left that I must write to make it three pages long.

I'm not sure if I can think of anything interesting at the moment.

Well, here's something interesting. Today I found out in Creative Writing class that instead of a final, we are going to have a party. It will be a potluck type of deal, and our teacher is going to try to reserve a private dining room for us. At this party we are welcome to read any of our work that we didn't get a chance to share in class. I think that is a brilliant idea and will be very fun.

It is time for bed.
