50 Thoughts I Have While Doing Homework

I'm going to go out on a limb here and make a big assumption - nobody likes doing homework. Some of us don't mind as much as others, but no one gets excited about homework. Or at least no one I know. Most of the time I would rather do anything, including cleaning my whole apartment, but the homework I have. I thought I would share some of the thoughts that crossed my mind as I worked on a big writing assignment for class.

50 Thoughts Everyone Has While Doing Homework

  1. THIS IS DUE IN 3 DAYS!?!? 
  2. Okay, time to get to work.
  3. Well, before I start I need to get a glass of water.
  4. I'll just put these dishes into the dishwasher. 
  5. Okay, now I'm really going to start on it.
  6. I can totally watch TV while I do homework!

Hopefully this was relatable to you if you are taking classes! What thoughts do you have when working on homework? Share them with me in the comments!


  1. These are so relatable! For me most of the time once I actually get to work & get past the initial 'oh god I don't want to do this, it's going to take forever' mindset it's actually not that much of a problem anymore because I then usually get into a productive phase. It's more that my thoughts hold me back from even starting cause I'm constantly telling myself 'this is going to suck so much' or 'I'll never get this done' or 'OMG I have no idea where to start' x


  2. Wow, your article is very funny and interesting ! :)
