Storified by Lizzie Bennet Diaries · Tue, Dec 04 2012 07:58:05

I’ve put it off as long as possible, but I have to finish writing my independent study paper on Collins and Collins this weekend.Lizzie Bennet
So for my thrilling Saturday night, I’m headed to the library in search of a quiet little study carrel.Lizzie Bennet
and either I’m going to finish this paper, or it’s going to finish me. #LizzieVsWordsLizzie Bennet
Making good progress. Think I may actually be able to finish this tonight.Lizzie Bennet
Could have sworn I’d brought the analytics breakdowns @TheCharlotteLu put together for me, but I can’t find them anywhere.Lizzie Bennet
@TheCharlotteLu Any chance you can resend them, bestie?Lizzie Bennet
@thelizziebennet Believe it or not, I’m actually not in the office. I’m not even near a computer. But Mr. Collins probably is. Try him.Charlotte Lu
@TheCharlotteLu :( Lizzie Bennet
@thelizziebennet Sorry.Charlotte Lu
@TheCharlotteLu It’s okay, you’ve already done so much to help me. I’ll figure it out.Lizzie Bennet
Set up a quick call w/ @MrRickCollins in a few minutes to get the info I need. Guess he has even less of an exciting Saturday night than me.Lizzie Bennet
@thelizziebennet I am always glad to be of assistance to enterprising students such as yourself. I eagerly await your call, Ms. Bennet.Rick Collins
@thelizziebennet Of course, you will likely have to cease tweeting in order to utilize your telephone for our conversation.Rick Collins
@MrRickCollins Um, thanks. And I’m actually tweeting from my laptop, not my phone.Lizzie Bennet
@thelizziebennet Ah, I see. You are taking advantage of the multiscreen approach to technology. Fascinating. And exceedingly savvy.Rick Collins
@MrRickCollins Right. Okay. Calling now.Lizzie Bennet
Really hoping I can get away with doing this from my carrel. I don’t see anyone else in this corner of the library.Lizzie Bennet
Whoops, there are some people sitting nearby now. And they’re not my biggest fans at the moment. Should wrap this call up.Lizzie Bennet
Just got the librarian stare of death. Going to need to finish this call outside.Lizzie Bennet
Okay, I managed to set myself up outside on a bench without dropping the call. If you see this tweet, then I can still connect to the wifi.Lizzie Bennet
This call is now entering its second hour.Lizzie Bennet
It’s kind of chilly out here.Lizzie Bennet
I’m thinkg my fingers are frozen.Lizzie Bennet
Do you think I can juggle the phone and laptop while getting a coffee?Lizzie Bennet
Probably not.Lizzie Bennet
Finally off the phone. Back inside. Feeling is slowly returning to my hands.Lizzie Bennet
…and the library is closing in 15 minutes. Looks like I’ll have to come back tomorrow to finish.Lizzie Bennet
and i’m supposed to make a video tomorrow. But I really need to have this paper done by the end of this weekend.Lizzie Bennet
@thelizziebennet Let me know if I can provide you with anymore pertinent information for your work.Rick Collins
@thelizziebennet I’m happy to take the time for such a worthy scholarly pursuit.Rick Collins
@MrRickCollins That’s really okay. You were so generous with your time today. More than I could have asked for. Much more. Thanks again.Lizzie Bennet
Back at the library. Turning off my phone and my wifi. Seriously going to get done this time.Lizzie Bennet
Made some headway, time for a tumblr break.Lizzie Bennet
Okay, okay. Back to writing.Lizzie Bennet
#successLizzie Bennet
It may not be great. It may not even be good. But it’s done.Lizzie Bennet
