I've found probably around 10-15 articles that I can use for my final paper for flavors, and am working on developing a skeleton outline for what I am going to discuss in the paper (it's to be 25-50pages long, and I want it to be good. I want to prove to Lawless that I'm not the complete slacker he's seen thusfar. Though perhaps the damage is done. I'd like to prove to myself that I'm not a slacker, as well, though). I already found five articles for my Dairy paper/presentation (three weeks from this past monday).
I need a timeline so I can see what I need to prioritize... what I have to finish before graduation.

It's kind of a relief to have that written up.
Now I can start transcribing to my planner, and writing down notes as to when I need to send out emails and etc.
Oh, something I didn't mention that I need to set up: Exit interviews for loans and other stuff related to graduation.
Kind of thinking I want a nap before the staff meeting. So long as I'm awake and feeling awake by the time I have to head out for that....
So I told myself no WoW for 2weeks. My friend from the game said, "I call your bluff... even though I won't be around to witness it" (he deleted his acct and it will be deactivated by the time I would be returning... in fact it should be up a bit before then?)
2 weeks from today places me at April 16th. It'd be a great birthday gift to myself, to see, "Wow, look, you do have self-control and you CAN motivate yourself, even still. See? You aren't a waste of space." And then to reward myself with some WoW.... but not allow myself to get sucked in the way I have been the past few months.
I can do this. I know I can. And I've said it a million times. But this time... it doesnt feel different. Yet.
I'm not deleting WoW from my computer. i need to prove that even with it there, I have the self control.
It's about control. I need to be in control. I need to feel in control.
I have the next couple weeks mapped out. Now to map out the individual days.
Tonight, perhaps. After the staff meeting.
