Perplexing: Reading Without Actually “Reading”

Possibly one of the worst feelings ever. My specific woe is the paper I literally have been angsting about writing for approximately three hours only to finally settle down, read the prompt one more tim,e and notice that it is not due tomorrow, in my Psychology of Learning class on November the 3rd. It is in fact due next week. Great. Glad my studying for the Finanacial Accounting Midterm that actually is tomorrow has been effectively jeopardized by an assignment I apparently have a week to do. 

How does that happen? How do we read things and yet fail to retain crucial details? More importantly, if it’s happening with one pice of paper with a due date on it, how many more important occurrences do the eyes miss on a day to day basis? Horrifying…
