Why is it that every time I have a paper, I find literally everything to be more interesting than finishing it? I become particularly industrious, but none of my new motivation pertains to the academic task at hand. It's not that I don't find my schoolwork interesting - truthfully, I really like the subject material that I am studying and the assignments are actually relevant to my life. But, I think the imposition of deadlines, the requirement that work be done in a specific way, and the pressure that I put on myself to submit work that is close to what I perceive to be perfection actually causes me to freeze up for a brief time, and oddly impede me from working as efficiently as I normally would.
I'm relieved to be finished with classes for the quarter. 7 quarters/21 months left.
