I apologize for not posting the past few days, as I was writing several essays. The reason I’ve been away is that this week is the beginning of my school final exams, so as you can imagine, all of the students are frantically working to finish their assignments and spending hours upon hours in the library.
Yet, while I do enjoy writing, essays sometimes can become a bit frustrating. Basically, you’re writing about the same topic for several paragraphs, only to restate your entire argument at the end. It’s a never ending cycle of citing sources (properly of course), then analyzing them, then connecting them to your overall topic, all in an eight to ten page paper. Every specification and detail must be perfectly met, in order to achieve the highest grade possible. You stress about making things perfect, yet deep down, you know there can never be such a thing.
Sorry for the bitter rant today, as you might of guessed, I’m a bit stressed, and will continue to be for the next week or so. Then finally next week, my exams will be completed, and I will be on my way back home, after finishing my freshman year at college. It’s an exciting thought that is a motivation to get my work done in these next weeks, and hopefully, I will be able to keep up with a semi-regular posting schedule.
Hope you all have a great week!
