In the old days, authors take long walks before writing a chapter or several chapters (at the most). It's an effective method of letting those creative juices overflow after savoring a bright, cool day. It doesn't mean that a gray, cold morning isn't less effective. (You might be thinking of a Gothic story.) It's more complicated these days, as there are many distractions to keep writers from doing the job right away. In the case of college students, it may be a Herculean effort.
You have time to Google Tarquin the Proud, the last king of Rome. His tyranny led to his overthrow (and the rise of the Roman Republic), but you were more interested in the Sibylline books. You couldn't get enough of the fabled tale behind it, which would be the premise of Rick Riordan's next novel.
The final year in college is a season away, and you're wondering if you have performed as expected during your penultimate year. You may have little time in pondering about your performance during this time of the term, but you can make your conclusion after assessing it for a few minutes or less. If you think you could have done better, then you have lots of opportunities during this pressure-packed month. On the other hand, you can't afford to slack at this point. Not even a bit.
You might be too old to bring out your grade-school kid in you and interpret "Games of Thrones" through simple illustrations on a piece of paper, but this could be THE activity that would save you from procrastinating during the spring semester.
You're thinking of "Arabian Nights" after your imagination run wild while reading those descriptions of exotic places. You can add a brief review of Pier Paolo Paolini's graphic adaptation of the book (or so you think), even comparing it to the Italian filmmaker's version of "Canterbury Tales".
A razor-sharp mind is what you need to pass your examinations. If you can't think well, then you're likely to struggle with your paper writing. It means adopting a certain routine, which might not conform to the lifestyle of most college students.
The air is as crisp as an apple, and the children are keen on picking up cones. Spring is here, and you've been curious about what the kids would do. It quite surprised you that they went back to school. You could imagine how the spring stimulated their zest for learning. Blame it on the morning sun.
The hills are alive during the spring season, but it's a different picture in the university. The term is coming to its final stretch. It's the most stressful moment for any college student, as the examinations and essay assignments are crammed into that short season (or so you've been thinking during these past months). It happens to be a rite of passage for any college student, so you should have a general idea. (If you didn't ask older students during your first visit to the campus, then you could have saved those questions for your tutor.)
You're done with the draft of your essay assignment, which didn't turn out to be difficult as you think. You're way ahead of the deadline, which is a good thing. Submitting your assignment is the farthest thing in your mind, as you need to proofread it.
Consider yourself lucky if you're being asked to write an essay on "The Scarlet Letter". Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel is an American classic, but the Me Too movement makes it more relevant than ever. Some literary critics could point out that this watershed movement shed a different light on Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale, the minister of Hester's church.
