Flexibility is a virtue

The phrase above is often used at my work as a tutor with ELL students, but I’ve found that it is also applicable to graduate school. The saying proved true today when one professor provided a later deadline for an upcoming paper and another offered an alternate date for the course final. I was personally thrilled for the changes because it freed up my weekend to watch a friend complete her black belt test. If only I can keep myself from procrastinating my work given the new dates!
