Daily Prompt: Wasted Days and Wasted Nights

“Tell us your tried and true techniques for focusing when that deadline looms and you need to get work done. In other words, how do you avoid wasted days and wasted nights?” –The Daily Post

Hahaha I have some weird techniques for getting work done when I need to whether it’s tucking myself away into random corners or putting my dinner on the line. All of them are pretty effective.

Food is a powerful source of motivation

Most of these ideas stemmed from trying to survive Expos at Rutgers during my first semester of college. Expos is a challenging writing course almost every freshman has to take. The readings require great focus and attention so I had to make sure I couldn’t see anything that might distract me. I figured bricks weren’t very interesting so off to the brick corner I went.

Who needs the library when you have a brick corner?
