Attempting to Write an Entire Paper the Day Before It’s Due

By Camden Rose

My charger only works when

it is placed at a certain angle

so naturally I spend a total of 20 minutes rotating it around my finger

at different intervals until my 98% percent charged phone buzzes

and then I place a pencil under the spot

to hold the charger in place.

Also, my room is obscenely messy from the

trip I just came back from and

there is no possible way I can get

anything done if a pathway is not cleared—

even though it’s been like this for the past week—

so, I must figure out where all this junk goes now.

My paperclip is going to snap if it

holds any more papers, but I know

I have a bigger clip somewhere.

I think I have a bigger clip somewhere.

The only way to find out is to do a massive

reorganization of all my desk materials,

just to be absolutely sure that I am wrong.

I’ve always wanted to try experimenting

with my craft supplies, mixing tools and whatnot,

and I just now got a brilliant idea for how I must

arrange these papers to create something new

and beautiful.

I think Netflix recently notified me that

a show on my list that I haven’t watched in over 2 years

just came out with a new season. What

a great time to be alive. I’ll have to catch up

on the season that’s in between what I’ve watched

and what just came out but that’s okay cause

I have all the time in the world.

For the next few weeks, this blog will be undergoing some changes. Please do not be alarmed. Even blogs have to grow.
