...any more stress and my head will explode

This will be quick, because I'm supposed to be working on a very important paper but have gotten slogged down in the research. I have to upload a 9-18 page paper by tomorrow evening for my class to read. It's supposed to be 1.5 spacing (greeeaaat), 12 point font, and sound logical (meaning, not like crap). At the same time, I have to take care of my daughter and try to get through 25 issues of Basara so that I can spend the entire day trying to write a cohesive argument. And since this is supposed to be a work-in-progress, so the final product is going to have to be between 18 and 28 pages.

The sound you hear is my soul weeping.

Since I've lost most of today having to go to a doctor's appointment, having a meeting with another professor about another 18-page project due in less than three weeks, and just not getting focused enough to work faster, I've got to try to get through the research portion tonight.

All this with a little girl staring confusedly at my arm as I type this with her on my lap. Yay.

I've got to get offline so that I can get back on track with this project. Pray, wish me luck, or whatever you do for people who need a morale boost.

Give that paper 3-inch margins so you can stretch it out! :)

I'm pulling for you to get through this without a head explosion!!!

Thank you so much! Trust me, if I could've fudged the margins, the font, or the spacing, this thing would've taken half an hour and looked like I had written instructions for a tube.

I've never had to use 1.5 spacing on papers before...I miss double spacing. I would've only had to write 5 pages instead of seven to make the minimum.

Sadly, my paper was turned in at 1:50 today! It makes me the last person to submit. Fortunately, I was last by about two hours, so I wasn't the only late bird. I still think I wrote crap.

Now off to create the presentation. After I finally get some sleep.
