Today, I realized I forgot to write a 5000 word essay for my English class. I tried to be calm since I had until midnight to finish, and it was only 8pm. I typed for three hours straight,and finished the assignment. I read over the instruction again, and realized it only had to be 500 words. FML

actually, they can count off for extra work, because it shows that you can't be concise. honestly, no teacher wants to read that much and they get pretty irritated when you make them. they give you word limit, because an essay has to be like a woman's skirt, "long enough to cover, but short enough to keep it interesting"

anyway YDI for procrastinating and for not being able to read

You've got to show that you read and understood the question. If you hand in 5000 words for a 500 word essay you will fail.

At least the hard work is done. Now just delete 90% of it, while keeping the structure.
