Oh, the tribulations of a college student...

Posted May 3rd, 2010 at 12:17 AM by Hiidoran

Mhmm, spent the last couple days doing nothing but writing essays and creating distractions for myself... kinda wanted to rant about it, but I felt a loss of energy, so I kinda just rambled on about it.

Spoiler:
In addition to the traditional finals I have this week, my History course decides that the best way to test all of your knowledge in the course is to assign four whopping essays that make you want to crawl into a hole and never emerge.

Being the wonderful, excitement-seeking person I am, I put all of these off until yesterday when I realized there would be no conceivable way I could write them all and study for finals at the same time. So, I sit down... and I stare at a blank screen for literally two hours before I finally get a sentence down. With the aid of some research and a little caffeine, I was able to churn out two very vague essays right around the time the sun started coming up. Then, I did what I knew was a bad idea... I went to sleep.

Wake up at around three in the afternoon, go to a study session for Statistics, and come back to finish the remaining two essays. Let me just say that's it's now 4:10 in the morning and I've written only about three paragraphs for the first one, and they just... sound... awful. Magic word = potato. It's like I just threw random words into random sentences hoping someone would be able to piece together my point.

Needless to say, I've pretty much created a wonderful ordeal for myself these past few days and I have no idea how I'll overcome it. The good news, however, is that the light at the end of the tunnel is very tangible at this point. By the end of the week, I'll be free... and that's all that's keeping me going.

...that, and around three energy drinks.


If you actually read all that, post the magic word hidden within and I'll give you a kiwi from my magical chest of wonders.

I think I lost all ability to speak coherently or form complete thoughts.

    Check your font color. I can't read your entry on my current style without highlighting. :(

    In other news, I hear you. Writing essays is hard. Don't miss that about college. You just have to force yourself to do it. Even if it's crappy, you'll at least get some sort of points.

    Yeah, apparently my font just follows that of the skin. I keep meaning to get around to fixing that, but I'm sooo very lazy.

    I finished the essays... I'm not proud of 'em, but they're done.
