Writing Essays/Reports
Posted 3/10/12
Essays can suck my imaginary penis, but they must be done unfortunately!

I used to leave stuff to the last minute but they get pretty hardcore in higher education so you haven't really got a choice but to start way in advance. I tend to:

- write notes first/research
- sort the notes and then transform them into paragraphs
- read books/paraphrase PROPERLY or you'll get done for plagiarism
- Reference quotes used
- Go on Amazon to get information for books I haven't even read LOL to fill up the Bibliography. But I do read books, but only what I need to read.


How do you cope with them?
How many do you get per semester?

Essays aren't to bad, research papers though?
Major stress attack and I usually end up in the fetal position after I'm done.

This is the one type of assignment I actually enjoy doing. : /

i still do it last minute. if we get to site our own sources, the chances of them getting the book is pretty slim. and i still pass with flying colors. though my last minute sucks when it comes to exams from larger lectures where i play games during class in which it pretty hard to do such as organic chem.

I hated essays. I tended to leave them till the last minute when I did it, and barely get a pass. I've never been much of a writer. Luckily, I don't do them any more, 'cause all I do is maths, maths and more maths. It's like heaven but better

They are a pain in the ass but it really depends on the assignment. I have to write about abstract and vague and interpretations on poems and use "critical conversations" to related other sources. I don't even know where to start.

HAHAHAHA. I dunno. I kinda hate essays yet I gotta say it's better than say doing Math or physics. Essays can be fun if you don't leave everything to the last minute and even then... you just hand it in knowing you're gonna fail. It's cool. Also highly depends on the topic. I can put a hell of a ton of effort into researching topics I'm interested in.

Well, from my past experiences, I cope with essays/reports by NOT procrastinating. Cause when you procrastinate, this happens @ the last minute:



I just take small steps and do like one paragraph per day. Then, on the final day before it's due, I just review it and volla!

P.S. Do not attempt to plagiarize cause when you get caught....

Essays are really easy, all you have to do is write a thesis statement and from there it all comes out. It isn't rocket science.
