Am I The Only One?

Am I the last to complete the personal statement? I'm about to resort to the plan where I lock myself away somewhere with my laptop and resolve not to come out until I have a decent first draft. The logical to-do-list-obsessed part of me is screaming, "Just write it! Just do it! It's not going to get any easier! Do you realize it's September 21st already? Do you?"

I will write it. I swear. After I write my Dante paper. And my engineering paper. Oh, and after I study for my Econ test. Maybe this weekend...

I'm definitely not done yet. I'm started, but I expect I'll go through at least three more drafts before I'm ready to send it on.

I seriously don't get the anxious rush to get things done so early. I plan to have everything sent into my schools before Thanksgiving. I can't imagine that adcoms don't get annoyed with people sending things in in September.

I'm still sitting on my first draft. Not because I've been procrastinating, but because I really have not had the time. I'm planning on doing it this weekend (again...) I even had someone try to make lunch plans for Saturday & I lied and told them I have a friend visiting and can't do lunch (not a complete lie, a friend is visiting, but just Friday night).

Ahahahaha. You're not the last.

And I'm a particular...nitwit...because I really need at least a complete draft to give to one of my recommenders. This weekend, man. It's all about this weekend.
