"I am required to use physical resources from the library. To go into more detail, there is a check-out log for the material he's reserved for me (and my classmates) to use. If our names aren't on the check-out log for all of the material, we won't get full credit (as we obviously didn't use the required material as reference)." soo go on the internetz be resourceful, and do the paper. If the library opens before your class go sign the check-out log thingy before the class and pretend that you used it. Alternatively if you have time before you need to hand the assignment in go to the library, get the resources, write the assignment paper in the morning and hand it is in the afternoon.
What I do when I get my course outlines I write out all the details of assignments (class: date: time: topic: type on palm cards as well the names of the months. I then organize them in vertical rows, in order of date. IE
February March 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5
etc etc etc
First semester last year I had about 9 assignments due in 3 weeks.
I know the being swamped thing. I was doing five classes: three on campus, two online (one required weekly papers, the other big chunks of weekly textbook work), and also working 30+ hours each week for over a month. I had to ask for extensions so much that at one point I'm pretty sure my instructors were just ignoring me. I ended up barely keeping a GPA that wouldn't cost me scholarships.
It's not a pretty situation; you're kind of screwed. You may have to end up doing a bit of Sophie's Choice with your assignments. Story of my fall semester. Good luck. Though since it's early in the semester you probably won't be so deep in that you can fix yourself afterwards.
I only expected it because my professor for english last semester actually helped me out when I was swamped with other work. She would just tell me to turn it in a day late or whatever and it would be fine.
Just go wikipedia whatever subject the assignment is and use their footnotes for your reference. There were probably quite a few days between the 10th and the 22nd where the library was open, right? So suck it up, be resourceful this time, and procrastinate less next time.
Alright, allow me to explain again. I am required to use physical resources from the library. To go into more detail, there is a check-out log for the material he's reserved for me (and my classmates) to use. If our names aren't on the check-out log for all of the material, we won't get full credit (as we obviously didn't use the required material as reference).
I haven't been assigned a single piece of homework ever since the spring semester has started. You might THINK it sounds great, but the fact is, I keep having small panic attacks that I may have forgotten to do some homework, when in fact there is no homework to do. Goddammit brain.
i'd hate to see you in the business world then. bosses hate excuses, especially when they hand you that amount of time on a silver platter and the words "i had other things more important than this project" roll from your tongue.
