Unhappy I just can't do it. -.- - October 5th 2010, 02:12 AM

Gah. I have an essay due by midnight tonight. (its 9pm here, so thats like what, 3 hours?) Its supposed to be 1100-1600 words.
But i can't write it.
I'm at my bf's house. He is writing his. But I cannot for the life of me pay attention enough to write it.

Everyone is talking. It doesn't bother him. But it bothers me.

I only have like 33 words written already.

And his whole family is in college. They all freak out if you talk while they are writing essays, but i cant do that. Its not nice in my opinion to freak out on people. So instead, I just cant write my essay, and i'm going to fail it and im going to fail the class.

Gah. I hate tonight.

I hate homework.

I hate essays.

I hate noisy people.


Maybe I'l just not ready for college... :/

Can you drop the class with a W or is it too late? It's possible that you aren't ready for College yet, which is perfectly fine. Not everyone is if College stresses you out. But I'm not trying to sound like a smart ass or anything, but if you have an essay due...the last place you want to be is at your boyfriend's house. To me, I would consider that too distracting. It would be like, to me, hanging out with my friends and trying to do an essay. It'd be near impossible because I wouldn't have the motivation! If you didn't do good on your essay, then just learn from it and do better on your next essays. Hopefully you managed to complete it though!

Before freaking out about it, how much is the essay worth, how much of the course has left to be completed and roughly, what's your mark now? You could end up with a bad mark on it but you still could get a good mark in the overall course. Try next time for better planning and start earlier.

I'd still do the essay and turn it in late. Your professor might not want to accept it, but just tell them that you realize it's late and that you'll accept any deductions, but that you wanted to turn it in anyways.
In the future, maybe doing your essay at the library would be more helpful.

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

I finished it. I was just freaking out until it was done. I actually got a 93% on it.

And being at my bf's house actually is good for things like that. Because I tend to get severely stressed out about it, and thats a bad thing for me. And he normally can get me out of being stressed and get me focused again..

I just tend to get way overwhelmed, and start thinking that everything is way worse that it actually is.

I just have to get my homework done BEFORE the night its due. :/

I'm glad you got it done on time! 93% is a great mark! I'm going to go ahead and close this. PM me if you want it reopened or just make a new one.
