Writing an essay is difficult. And yet, it is required for nearly all classes in all levels of education. I remember fondly my kindergarten essay on domestic economic policies of 1930’s United States. In some career fields, essays are a necessary part of the workload as well. Thus, it is important to know the stages of the essay in order to better create standard and super-standard quality of essay. I hope this is informative to you, the reader.

Stage 1: Procrastination

Whether you wait a few days, or until the night before, procrastination is something every student does. Sometimes you procrastinate because it’s not the most pressing thing on your to-do list. Sometimes it’s because you have not quite figured out what you’re going to write about. A lot of the time it is probably just because you don’t want to do it. You just put it off and put it off, you might even forget about the assignment entirely until the day comes where you have to get it done.

Stage 2: Procrastination + Dying Internally

The time has come… you’re finally getting started. Except you’re not. You’ve got your materials out, you’re ready to work, but you’re not actually working on it. You’re checking your various social media accounts, watching tv, or finding literally any excuse to not do it. But as you do these things, your conscience is constantly reminding you that you need to get to work. You try to work, but inspiration doesn’t come. You just stare at your blank Word document, hoping that the words will just start to flow. You keep trying to figure out how much time you have left to finish in your head… hoping you’ll get it done in time.

Stage 3: Clinical Death

Yes, unfortunately, you have failed your assignment. The spiral of procrastination and its related stress has lead to your death. You’re dead. On the bright side, I guess you don’t need to worry about that failed assignment anymore. Yeah, you probably should’ve just started early.

Well, we just told you the stages of writing an essay. Hope this helped. We tried to be realistic instead of idealistic for the better purposes of your growth in knowledge of this topic. Anyways, good luck with your future essays, and bye.

If South Carolina Colleges Were Characters From 'The Office'

Who's Jim and who's Meredith?

"The Office" is one of the best shows on the face of the planet. Don't believe me, you obviously haven't watched it. It has a character for everything, including all of the South Carolina colleges.

The Citadel

This one is probably the easiest. Creed Bratton. Hands down. Military all day every day. No one knows what really goes on behind closed doors, except the people there. Just like Creed's mind.

Coastal Carolina University

Consistently voted one of the top party schools in the nation. #It'snotcollegeit'sCoastal.

Winthrop University

Winthrop is the place for future teachers. We all know that Meredith is the mother/teacher figure in the office, which is kind of scary in and of itself.

Columbia College

Erin just seems like the type of person who would go to an all-female college.

Bob Jones University

At what other school do you see people wearing things that could be from the American Girl large colonial dolls Spring line?

Wofford College

The pearls, Greek Life, and Southern fashion are so real.

Furman University

Let's be real. Pam is a bit of a nerd. But at the end of the day, she does know how to get down. I mean she WAS on the party planning committee. And who doesn't want that Ring By Spring?

College of Charleston

Nard Dog is definitely in an a capella group in Charleston, taking in the city and the history while dressing like a frat star.

Medical University of South Carolina

Andy isn't alone in Charleston. Dwight is down there becoming a doctor. Yes, someone who can save lives and is able to do surgery. Although, who else would you expect to be a doctor?

University of South Carolina

There would be no South Carolina without the University of South Carolina. There would be no office without Michael Scott. The later seasons prove it. They're large and in charge.

Clemson University

While Michael thinks that he runs the office, it's no secret that Jim is the mastermind behind the operation. The office would fall apart without him. I'll just let that sit.

Even After Family Weekend, I Haven't Gotten Homesick And I'm Not Ashamed Of It

It's really OK.

Now that we have successfully drifted into October, I am about a month and a half into my freshman year of college.

As the leaves on the trees start to change colors and the skies start fading to grey, Family Weekend rolls around. As a preface, I used to live in Connecticut. I think it's safe to say I still #BleedBlue even after living in South Carolina for my high school career. Regardless, it's safe to say me attending the University of Connecticut is a little ways away from my parents and cats.

That being said, the last time I saw my mom and dad was move in day. Exactly six weeks without seeing my dad or giving my mom a "huggie". I have been away from home before, for example I went to Ireland and Scotland this summer for a week with a teacher from school and a few other kids that went to my high school.

I don't miss high school and I enjoy living in a dorm with my amazing roommate and hanging out with people pretty much everyday and just doing my own thing, but it's weird not coming home and seeing my parents every night.

See, I can't describe this as home sickness, because I talk to my mom on a pretty consistent basis, she sends me pictures of my cats, and I just haven't had that cloud of sadness over my head because I miss home. Not to say I haven't been sad in college, stuff happens, but it hasn't been like what sooo many other people talk about it to be.

Even now, a few days after seeing my parents, I miss the people not the place. I'm not going to guilt trip myself over this either. I think it's healthier! It was super nice to hang out with my parents again. I got fed well and spent a night off campus for the first time since I got here. Another positive was not having to jump out of my bed the next morning or wear shower shoes while showering

I'm hoping while writing this, that the stereotypical home sickness doesn't catch up to me in the near future (preferably not at all).

Even just six weeks in, I feel like I have grown as a person and changed. I will say it was amazing to see my parents, but I'm glad I'm away from home being able to blossom into an educated young woman.
