10am : Organize entire bedroom and line up homework on my desk in the order that I plan to work on it. Start up computer and open grammar notes on Word. Read one sentence of textbook, “La règle n’est pas qu’un instrument normatif.”
What does “normatif” mean? Better look it up. Open Wordreference and search “normatif.” While Wordreference is loading, open Facebook. Scroll through entire newsfeed. Realize I haven’t checked my email. Respond to all emails. Somehow get trapped in a string of Facebook chat messages. Remember that I haven’t posted my Mardi Gras photos yet. Post Mardi Gras photos. Tag all of them. Add descriptive comments. Respond to messages that people have sent me while I’ve been uploading photos. Think, “I can’t start taking notes until these are loaded!” Scroll through newsfeed again (maybe something new happened! It did! Kayla posted a photo of her cat wearing a heart-shaped hat! Lololol, comment on everything.)
Okay, photos are loaded. Sign out of Facebook and Gmail. Search “Dictionnaire français” and read another sentence of the textbook, “Elle est, depuis les années 1960 et la grammaire générative, un outil qui permet de créer des phrases et de donner sens à la grammaire.” Wow, that was long. And boring. Maybe I’m not ready to study yet. Search “Jenna Marbles.” Watch “Better names for animals.” Re-watch “Things I suck at,” because it always makes me feel better about myself. Look at clock. AAHH! It’s 12:00! Panic. Close Youtube window.
12 noon: Read another sentence of textbook, “La grammaire scolaire en a retenu des pratiques, notamment celle de la transformation.” Take a sip of coffee. Realize it’s cold because I made it at 9am. Microwave it. Decide I need a bathroom break. Respond to some text messages. Realize I haven’t checked Tumblr since a few days ago.
