This (Killer) Essay

I am currently a college student and I have been really struggling with this final assignment for last semester that I still need to turn in. I have a lot of pressure because it is worth a huge chunk of my grade and so far I am not doing so great in this class.  And yes, the semester is complete so this is long overdue but the professor is willing to submit a change of grade documentation to fix my grade which is currently a big fat F (largely because I am missing the most important assignment of the semester).  So why am I telling the internet this when my parents do not even know the whole story?  Because I am hoping that by submitting my predicament to the world wide web, I will get some angst off of my chest or alleviate some of the things that are preventing me from finishing this darn paper.  I have enough written quantity wise, I just need to fill in a couple of quotes and I will have a decent paper.  WHY is this taking so long, proving to be so difficult, and why most of all am I seemingly unable to simply finish up and turn it in?  I am thinking a lot of it has to do with fear of actually failing the course – especially since I am due to graduate this fall and have a good GPA of which a F would dissolve.

So fellow bloggers, students, writers and anyone else that may read this, if you have any words of wisdom, advice, suggestions, et cetera – PLEASE  drop a line!



P.S.  I am sitting in Starbucks at the moment across from my college trying once again to get this thing done – and I could use all the help I could get so really, any inspiration or motivation is GREATLY APPRECIATED!  (Especially since it is technically summer for me anyway so I have more or less lost my school mode mentality which surely is not helping anything at this point.)

  1. find your quotes, put them in -proof it – turn it in. Bite the bullet on this one. You have nothing but an improvement to the F that is the current grade. The longer a professor waits after agreeing to submit a change of grade form- the more stellar the paper needs be, and the less patience with your procrastination.
