#slice2013 23 of 31


I cannot do deadlines. Seriously, though. I hear about a deadline and it goes through one ear and out the other. I am going to make a new March resolution, since New Years has already passed, to make a habit of writing down deadlines because I honestly miss every other one. It's been a miracle that I've remembered to post every day.

I've missed deadlines for school, deadlines for my friends, deadlines for contests and deadlines for summer programs. It's really, really bad. I'm applying to a Columbia summer writing program and my mom and I originally thought the deadline was March 1st. I didn't make it. However, no need to worry, the deadline is actually April 3rd--my mom and I are just illiterate and I am extremely lucky! 

It's not as if I don't care or as if I don't sometimes enjoy doing the work. It's just that I'm extremely talented at forgetting important dates. There's so much I have to remember on a daily basis, and I often hear the words "due in two weeks" and completely relax. 

I suppose I will go start my biology paper that's due on Monday.


  1. The Columbia writing program is wonderful - so glad to hear that you will be practicing your craft over the summer, Larkin.

  2. Dates do creep up on you and then pow! they interfere with your life and activity. I'm terrible at remembering birthdays and I'm usually in trouble because I forgot someone's. I hope your resolution works, but maybe you need an organizer to write them down.
