11 hours later, half way there, and I have 5 hours until my deadline. I have tons I want to say but I'm really struggling with this. I'm so annoyed I didn't check the deadline earlier because I thought starting today I would have a week to prepare my essay, but alas not and now I'm really struggling with how to format and write this.

How many pages? You said 11 hours n halfway there so I'm assuming an 8 or more page essay?

If you have writers block take a break and go out for a jog an idea will pop up somehow

That shit usually happens to me and I get a EUREKA moment and start writing 5 pages in like 2 hrs

At my uni we use word counts and honestly the word count is small af (2000 words) and usually I can do it but I have bad writer's block. I just want it out the way so I can sleep and not worry until I get the feedback lol. As long as I pass at this point idc.

 

log off OH

I literally only came back to complain/get a break from staring and typing.

True, I am currently on my 5th page so I'm almost there

 

The module this is for is Creative Industries (publishing, theatre, museums, films, etc. and I'm a film student) so I found the best question I could and just ran with it so I'm currently discussing ~~fans as potential political motivators~~ so the act of new media spreading~~ and us all becoming aware of global events and crises and doing stuff about it because we can see it going on and not being limited by old media~~

 

It sounds so dumb but I'm ready for the roasting I already did a lame ass essay on Penguin publishing in West Africa that I had almost no source material for lmao

It's literally so dumb how complicated it is, bless purdue though for helping

 

(Also bless your Cardcaptor Sakura dp it gives me the nostalgic feels)

Group essays are the worst because there is always that one ass who doesn't even write a single letter and looks like he hasn't done any shit wrong.

Thank god film students don't do this (I hope???) we sometimes have group presentations though but that's alright.

 

One of my flatmates had to do like 2 group presentations and a group essay and like everyone was a pain in the ass to her and didn't do anything.

I don't mind the actual essay part it's the whole "I have severe social and general anxiety so the act of having to write something intellectually good by a deadline and have someone assess it and then give me feedback and see how bad I am" is more the issues. Which is a dumbass loop because it makes me put off my essays until last minute, then they turn out average, and then I read that I got an average result, and then I get anxious so the loop continues.

Also, don't mind me blabbing I'm very tired but have the inability to sleep lol

 

Weirdly my social anxiety doesn't stop me from blabbering during seminars (in the UK they're small, like 14 people at most) and presentations where I generally get good scores.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Makes no sense to me. Especially when lecturers tell me I'm articulate lmao.

I totally used to be the exact same way, but I had an english professor who was such an amazing mentor and inspiration to me that I know have immense confidence in my essay-writing.

 

I hope you someday find someone who will so the same for you
