How last minute have you ever procrastinated on doing a paper?

One time I had a paper due at 9am and I didn't even begin to start it until around 3am that morning lol😳😳

  • This onetime for psychology class my teacher gave us options. Either a super long paper, crazy elaborate presentation or a 20 min long voice podcast. 2 days before it was due I started research, the night before I recorded myself and at about 3 AM the morning of, I edited it together.

    I remember the teacher was so excited because he gave us months and thought that everyone was gonna put in all this effort and my podcast was so boring and long.

    I remember the last day of school I meet with him. I got like a B+ and I confessed to him that I was sorry it was so boring, he honestly told me he was entertained by it and that he was gonna use it as a benchmark for next year. I thought he was screwing with me until I found out he actually did.

  • I took art history... absolutely horrendously bad class by the way... and there was some paper we had to turn in that required us to go to an art museum on our own time and analyze some piece, which was absolutely not happening, haha. Anyway, days late turned to weeks late, so with like 5 days to go I went to the chick who was my T. A., pleaded senioritis (I went to schooln4 more years after that😂), "D is for diploma", gave her a wink and a smile, threw on the WhiteSteve charm. She tells me to do it over the weekend and get it in to her, so I did. Definitely saved my grade. So I guess it was probably 4 or 5 weeks late all in all, haha. I suck at school😝

  • I once wrote a paper in 10 days and it was absolutely horrible. 10 days might sound like it wasn't too bad but in Switzerland, undergrad papers have to be 15 pages and you need to include a lot of research. You need to have a minimum of 10 sources (scientific journals or monographs). Oh and I didn't write it in my mother tongue, which also made it tougher. I swore to myself that I will never do this again.

  • I think it was my first (?) semester after going back for my degree. I had a comparative paper about English Romantic poetry due, and somehow it totally slipped past my radar.

    Anyway, I churned something out about William Blake (and his Songs of Innocence and of Experience) in like... four hours?

    Never again, I said. LOL

  • Last semester, I did a paper in 12 hours straight, from 9PM to 9AM.

    Turned it in at 10AM. Somehow didn't fuck it up too badly.

  • Not really, when assigned homework I've always either did it early or I choose to not do it at all..

  • I'm the worst at procrastination. In English last year we had three weeks to read a book and we had to write an essay and make a poster on it. I didn't chose the book I was going to use until 10 PM that Sunday night before it was due.
