It's 2:07 AM. I, very recently, finished my chemistry homework. A little before I did that, I finished my physics homework. Prior to completing my physics homework, I busted out my history and capped that off too.

That's three pretty big assignments that I dominated between 11 PM and 2:05 AM. I honestly didn't think I was going to do it. I thought I'd fall asleep. I nearly did with history.

But then, as I contemplated whether I was going to do it or not, I remembered a lot of stuff. Because this stuff has to do with the lessons version two post I'm going to write in the near future, I won't elaborate too much.

Basically --> I told myself I'd finish. I said I'd do it.

And so I did it.

I was almost falling asleep, so I had to get moving or else I'd die.

So I started dancing like that weird old guy we saw on Saturday. You know who I'm talking about Annie. I totally busted out his moves.

And then I did some cool calf work outs. And then I pretended to be a boxer.

And all the sudden I was awake, and I busted out those physics answers. It was intense, that was a way involved little work sheet there. I have no idea on two of the questions. I'm alright with that though, I got the other four or so.

And then chemistry. I finished it. This was the hardest one. It was getting late, and I had about seven problems left. I kept on trucking. The first two took quite a while to calculate. I moved on to the third one. It was talking about van't something or others. I had never heard of that, so I had to go back and read. I read it, learned it, then finished the problem. That took a while.

I looked back on the page that tells us what questions to do. Yeah, I had just done 59. I was supposed to be doing 52. Hrm. Oh well, I learned something.

So I go back. I do two more problems, and then I realize something awesome. The next two I have to do are just theory problems. Nothing to do with my TI-86. I just have to answer something about colloids. No plug and chug. No conversions. Just answers.

I have to look some stuff up for those two. It doesn't matter though, I love theory answers. I'm excited, only one left.

And then I read the question. I was hoping for theory.

What I got was the bearded lady from the videos we watched in Olsen's class.

It was a three part question, dealing with two different solutions. Apparently I was putting benzosomething acid into CCl4, and then the same ammount of Benzotastic acid into C2H5OH. I had to figure out the mole ratios, the molality, and the molarity of each of em.

It took a while. It was the last problem, that wasn't nice of them.

But that's not what's important. What's important is that I finished it, and that now I'm going to bed. I am victorious.

I finished my homework. I didn't think I'd do it.

And yet, I stuck with it. I got it done. That feels great. I beat it. I was [] this close to giving up and just going to bed tonight. Oh no, none of that slackerpants business for me. I'm raging. I'm a homework machine. I was born to read text books. I'm not giving up.

It's 2:16- I'm going to bed.

Dang straight.

Good job! See i figure that if you start earlier than you can go to bed earlier... I think that works better...
