Drowning in Homework

Posted by thisisjay , in School 02 July 2012 · 111 views

Taking a break from my homework for the moment. I've been at it all day. I'm only taking two summer classes but I feel like I'm drowning in all the homework I've been given. No matter how much I get done it seems like I have double that left to do.

In my first class I've finished all the reading I have to do for this week, but I've got an essay that needs to be done by Wednesday that I haven't even started on. I'm completely blanking on it. I have to define what I think women's literature is and then use evidence from what we've read to back it up. I've already got a pretty good idea of my definition and what I'll us to back it up, but the idea hasn't fully formed in my brain and won't until I start writing. Problem is I can't figure out where I want to start. Everytime I decide where I want to start my ideas start evolving in my head into something else and then it doesn't make sense to start in that place anymore. I also have to review at least two of my classmates essays for that class and there's this other project I need to start because it's going to require more effort than this essay, but I hadn't yet because I didn't realize it was due next week. I'm trying not to worry about it thought until this one's done.

In my other class I have a test to take Thursday and I'm not even close to being ready for it. Now this schedule is my own making. We have free rein to take these tests whenever we want but I've been taking one once a week, mainly because we have about one test for each week of the summer semester. Also, I'm a big procrastinator so I have to stick to a firm schedule or absolutely nothing gets done. I did all of my reading for the other class over the weekend so I could focus on just the essay and this test during the week. But this lesson plan for the test is just so long. There's to much information to take in.

I guess all written down it doesn't seem like that much to do. It's just taking for ever to do it.
