stupid essay is finally finished

Posted August 15th, 2012 at 11:42 PM by s0nido

I finally finished my Extended Essay. It's basically a mini-research essay which IB students are forced to endure if they want a diploma.
I should've gotten it out of the way a long time ago (I actually had a complete draft done but it was nearly 1000 words over the limit, nothing a bit of word-trimming wouldn't fix), but then I handed it to another teacher and she basically told me to rewrite the essay. Okay, so she didn't tell me that directly, but when I received the corrected draft back, it was covered in corrections, annotations and statements like "structure poor" and stuff. A teacher's way of saying that your work is complete garbage.

So I basically procrastinated for about 2 months with my useless 5th draft, dreading to start it again until suddenly, there was less than a week until the Extended Essay was due and I had to hand in something to the IBO or else I'd fail. So I took my crappy 5th draft, added some touch-ups on the formatting, introduction and abstract to score the giveaway marks and reference everything properly to score points on referencing.

I'm hoping I don't fail, because if I do, I don't get my diploma and thus, will have a very hard time getting into university. >.

    I loved writing essays in school/college. ;0; I loved school/college in general, but especially the work. Here's to hopefully getting good marks!
