Two weeks left and NO PAPER

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 


I have 2 weeks left until my LAST semester is over with and I can get my Masters.

However I'm having a HUGE case of senioritist. What doesn't help is that 1) I'm not in the same state as the class and 2) I've had so many other distractions like christmas, wedding planning, new job, no job, another new job, moving, bills, etc.

I've read through most of the material, but it's all in electronic format. I can't read material for very long on a computer screen without getting bored. I also can't comprehend material in digital format. I need to feel the paper and the smell the ink in order to understand everything...and sit through the lecture.

I understand it, but I don't. I can't print the material off because its 500+ pages that I would be printing.

I have only the outline done. As for writing it, I'm clueless.

Inspiration will come promise! I prefer to feel paper under hand too, there's something slightly more "real" about it.


feel the inspiration particles yet?

I have a hard time reading long things on the computer too. Maybe try turning down the brightness of the monitor so it's not so claring on your eyes?

Also, check with a printing firm and see if they would be able to print it off for you? They charge per page, but I don't know how much.

I just did the same thing with an essay for Accounting. I turned it it today(the due date), but I'm not sure it was a very good paper. Certainly not the best I've written.

Yea, I'm just going in strides right now. Read a little bit of the paper, check TCS. Last I looked into having it printed was at Officemax or staples...they wanted about $0.30 a copy...so if my math is right, $150? no thanks...

Can you convert the doc to a smaller font &/or print it as a half-size book? that would cut down on the cost of paper

You're so close. Just keep going at it and we're here cheering you on.

Maybe the university library can print it for you?
Our university library prints for $0.05 per page.

Also, you can print two pages per page if you want to save money (the paper will be in "landscape" format and have two pages side by side)

Or at least, if you have access to a computer with an LCD screen or a laptop, use that. These screens are easier on your eyes.

Good luck!!

Do landscape front and back if you can. Some copy shops around campus will also work deals.

If it makes you feel any better I also big time procrastinated on my thesis and had about a billion other very important things going on during that time. But I did great, despite my procrastination and cramming and going on hardly any sleep for longer than I thought was possible. Good luck on all your big stuff coming up! You will do just fine!
