Fear hit me.
“I have a research paper due tomorrow morning,” I said aloud, startling everyone else in the movie theater who was watching Kevin Costner hit a golf ball.
How could I have forgotten? It was 8:00 on a Sunday evening and I had an 8-page paper due in twelve hours.
When I arrived home, I sat down in front of my computer and tried to think of a topic. My professor said our papers needed to be about technology in some way, shape, or form.
“How can I find, research, and write about a topic in one night? I have a few hours to do a few week’s worth of work!”
I was in trouble.
