F- Forums: for all your c-blog error needs

I'm headed up to the Great White North in a couple of weeks and it's really got me under the gun. We'll be visiting family and such for ten days, four of which will have me almost completely without internet. Which means no Destructoid. Which means unimaginable horror.

Plus, while the place we're staying at will be connected in some way to a series of tubes, I have no idea what the situation will be like, let alone have time to do my blogging. So, I've been trying to get three weeks worth of posts ahead of where I need to be (minus the Recaps which will, obviously, not be done by me at that time... you lucky devils, you) and I'm having a really hard time focusing on the task.

I typically work well under pressure. The difference is that I usually only have one thing that I'm deadlining under at a time. To get half a dozen things done (plus some other little projects) is a bit intimidating. I start on one, then get distracted and work on something else for a bit. The whole "Sword of Damocles looming" thing is frustrating as hell and I just want it all done.

So, when you guys have a ton of work to do, how do you manage to get it finished on schedule? I'm probably going to be up all night, right until the time we leave for the airport, trying to grind through. Sleep on the plane, I always say.
