Step 1: Don’t check your calendar for deadlines. As we know, that causes stress, and that is something we most definitely want to avoid.





Step 2: Watch some Netflix, browse Tumblr, check your Facebook or Instagram. I mean, it’s technically research, isn’t it? Kind of?




Step 3: Forget about the paper altogether. It’s probably been causing you some subconscious stress, so it’s for the best.




Step 4: A few weeks later, allow yourself to remember your paper. Now that you have psychologically prepared yourself through the art of procrastination, you should probably check that deadline.




Step 5: Discover that your paper is due tomorrow.




Step 6: Allow the panic to sink in.



Step 7: Cry.




Step 8: Cry some more.




Step 9: Drink a lot of caffeine.




Step 10: Feverishly crank out a twelve paged paper with excellent sources – Wikipedia counts, right? – and artfully phrased topic sentences.




Step 11: Go to bed at some point in the early morning and catch an hour of sleep.




Step 12: Turn your paper in the next morning, riddled with coffee stains and misspelled words.




Step 13: Finally, complain incessantly about how CRPs require way too much work and how unreasonable teachers’ deadlines are. How on earth are you supposed to get everything done on time anyways?
