|Thank the Goddess all this free time is behind me

I have a 4-page paper due in legal writing tomorrow. I have written almost half a page of it.
My problem is that I have far too much time on my hands. There is always some nebulous "later" in which I can accomplish these tasks. And the really frightening part is, I have managed to use up all the "later" on two separate occasions.
I really need to be working.
My working schedule is planned out like D-day. Every hour is accounted for, and if I am not accomplishing in that hour that which is on the schedule, I am concretely, definitively falling behind.
Not so, now. Now I have great rolling meadows of time, puffy hours within which to do as I please. so every day I fall a little further behind.
Intellectually, I know I should not be allowing this. Yet the time spins on.
Next Tuesday, Jeff and I go back to work. We hit the ground running in a new firm, where we will have to build a practice from scratch. The stress will be high, the hours long,and the work strenuous.
Thank goodness. I might otherwise flunk outof law school.
