Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink. Good luck.
I’m going to give all of the Doctor Who fans second so they can catch their breath.
Okay. So, what could I possibly be talking about?
DEADLINES. Deadlines. Deadlines. We need to talk about these things for a moment. Here’s a little background.
The term came from a time a student forgot about the research paper he/she had, and immediately went into cardiac arrest, making the heart rate monitor go flat, as the student was insisting, “I am dead! SO, so DEAD!” Thus, the deadline was born. There’s your history lesson for today.
All joking aside, I want to remind you that this is NOT a time to relax. We have a little over a month and a half of school left. That. Is. It.
Again, I will give you all a moment to catch your breath. I especially apologize to the Doctor Who fans, who have really been put through the ringer in this post.
Personally, this means that in less than a month I have two research assignments due as well as several scholarship essays due within this time frame. I have to start thinking about packing up and where I would like to work when I move.
Now it’s my turn to take a minute to regulate my breathing…
Please don’t give up people. We are almost done with this semester. Good luck!
