Today, after finishing an essay at the library, I fell asleep and had a dream about the essay crawling out through my laptop screen and trying to kill me. I woke by the librarian shaking me and telling me to stop screaming. I was mortified. FML

I think that episode was to teach someone the outcome of procrastination. If you put something off till last minute, the teacher will always cancel the assignment.

second year uni is nothing. Wait until you are in your final year and writing dissertations or a research thesis or something. That's scary :P. I read a 500 page medieval chronicle today for my one :L. Second year uni essays are also usually only between 2-3000 words. And I say only... because my one is 12,000 words.


People who always have to insist that they have it the worst make me lol. Its like, i love my degree. I actually enjoy it. I am super psyched for my dissertation. Its gonna be long but I'm going to love every word of it. So no, I'm not dreading third year and long essays. Thanks for your input though.

#28 - second year in my uni degree is the hardest. and the biggest word limit we had was 2500 for an assignment. and in my third, final year we dont have to write a thesis or anything. just because you have to do it, doesnt mean every uni degree does.

second year is the hardest for my degree apparently as well because we have loads of assignments all due in at once at the moment but final year you have less assignments which are spread out more and your dissertation so there's less stress piled on at once

That seems a good attitude! Friends who have done degrees say 3rd year isn't as bad as you've had more practise at writing long essays, plus you know your subject matter better. So even if you have a long dissertation it may not be as bad as you think, and you often get a considerable amount of time for it.
