Assignment procrastination

Sometimes I really suck at being a student. Today is one of those days, and I’m sure it happens to everyone, but it’s really disheartening considering how often it happens to myself.

Assignment due on Tuesday and it involves one of the more basic yet frustrating topics, which is subnetting networks. I know I can do it if I give my brain time, and just look at the damn information, but everytime I do I rage against it.

All I want to do right now is make my D&D cases, tidy the flat, build some stuff, write some stories, etc. Basically anything but this.

I’ve spent most of my day attempting to get this assignment done, and I know once I get started in earnest I can do it, but in all honesty, I’m writing today off. My reasoning is that if I’ve spent the day attempting this, and no progress has been made, I’ve wasted my energy and time when other things do need to be done.

Tomorrow is a busy day, but I’ll have time again in the evening to tackle it. What I can do however is make things a little easier for myself and make sure the information I need is ready to hand so I don’t get distracted dicking about the internet finding what I need to do.
