Where's MLK When You Need Him?

Inspiration and motivation are two very important things. I have neither at the moment. Procrastination and hesitation, on the other hand...

Quite frankly, I need some Martin Luther King in my life. Someone to give me a guide to a goal that the tutors have set me. I need someone to make me want to lift myself out of bed, walk to the library, sit myself down and at least open Microsoft Word. NOT FACEBOOK.

Like tonight, I've been here, sat with people who need to get their essays done. I've just dragged them down with me. We've sat filling out a 12 page application form for deal or no deal, played Draw My Thing, and now scrolling through Twitter just to see what's trending. I've written NO WORDS. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Rien. Niente. 0.

I mean, what would the great MLK say if he saw me straggling, doing nothing with my life. Simply, I bet he'd kick off.

No one wants an angry MLK on their conscience. I need to do work. Now.
