Crunch Time

The last 2 hours before a deadline are the worst. It starts seeming possible that I'm not going to make the deadline and so the panic sets in and so I become less and less able to concentrate on the task at hand. And so I start sending random acquaintances links to pictures of baby sloths and blogging compulsively and seeking out sounding boards around campus.

Once more to the breach!

(and searching online to remind myself of the precise wording of Shakespearean idioms)

  1. Things I have searched online in the last week:

    "I must be cruel only to be kind/thus worse begins and bad remains behind."

    "Seems, madam! Nay, it is; I know not "seems."

    "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal"

    Can you imagine the time when you actually had to remember these things? Gah.
