no ordering books online ... boo hoo

So.. I am having a bit of a crisis. I have been in school for the past three years working part time on my masters degree. I am completely finished the program with the exception of one class I am in the process of "making up" because I missed it and writing my thesis.
The program for all intents and purposes is complete. The people who chose to write the comprehensive exam have written it, they have been graded and they have all passed. They have received notification that they have graduated and now there is just the formality of the actual graduation ceremony to participate in. I have procrastinated since last May working on my thesis at all. Basically I submitted my first proposal draft, received the feedback, put it away and didn't look at it again.
My instructors have been calling me and putting a bit of pressure on me to get going. I appreciate the fact that they are aware I am alive. However I am mentally "spent" and have no desire whatsoever to work on either of the two assignments. I have now been given a deadline for one of them - the stats class I am making up - and that should spur me to some kind of action.
In the meantime I am SOOOOOOO enjoying reading books just for the sake of reading right now. I am having fun in the library. I am having fun reading friend recommendations on goodreads and I have no desire whatsoever to stop ordering library books right now. Unfortunately unless I stop with the library books I KNOW I wont start with the classwork. It's a sad, sad day for me today as I went to the library online site to order books today and then shut down the site without placing an order. So sad. So sad.
