Why can't I stay focused on this paper that's due in 6 hours? Is it because it's on a topic I already know pretty well, and I get to fill at least a quarter of it with implications and reactions and other bullshit that I don't need citations for?

I'm supposed to be spending half those 6 hours in class, so I don't know how much writing time I'll get in then, especially since we're working on group projects instead of just getting a lecture today. Should I just blow off my group and cut today, staying here in the library to finish this paper? This paper's worth 30% of my grade, and the project is a lousy website (I could probably do my section of it in 15 minutes at the very most).

What's your favorite citation style? I've been using MLA forever, so coming to library school and finding out we have to do everything in APA is making me absolutely nuts. I hate it.

EDIT: Do you procrastinate worse when you're pretty confident in your work?
