Anybody else a strong writer here? I always do my best work under pressure, so I usually procrastinate until the night before to do my work. So I have a 3-5 page paper due for my composition II class tomorrow...probably be up till 3 or 4am doing it.

I had to do an 4-6 page paper on Nature vs Nurture that was due last week. I waited till the last minute, and ended up typing an 6 page essay in like 5-6 hours, which I don't think I will really get a good grade though. I should really start writing my 10-15 page research paper on A.D.D.

I always like to leave them till the day before. Gives you really good motivation and that normally pays off for me, i might do planning earlier on but i find it difficult to care that much about actually writing anything.

Exactly, Tom...exactly. I find no motivation to write until the day before.

What do you guys recommend doing to stay awake to write the papers? I can't drink coffee as it makes me drowsy then makes me hyper.
I get easily distracted too by the internet. Takes me all night to do some papers (no sleep), but only 2-3 of those hours are actually typing the paper.

Any hot drinks make me sleepy, so i just make sure i've had something to eat, so i'm not hungry and not really stuffed. Then just get a cold drink i like drinking, and crack on. I don't ban my self from msn, Facebook or anything like that, but i like to just do an hours work then like twenty minutes socialising. That way, by not going too heavy with storming on, i work better if i'm relaxed

I'm on my 6th call to Microsoft as I attempt to get W7 Pro 64-bit installed on my computer.

Just got home premium installed on my old computer. Install went just fine except as I anticipated, it would not support the sound blaster live 5.1 value card. No aero either. That sucks. I wish they made more colors for the basic theme
