"Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way."

Every student knows that when they're assigned an essay in class, they're in for a multitude of emotions. The emotional rollercoaster that is entailed in writing an essay has its ups and downs, and ultimately leaves you questioning every word you've written. No one understands an inner conflict like this more than Michael Scott, and his daily emotional struggles can be applied to writing your perfect essay.

1. Getting your assignment:

You're sitting in class and your professor suddenly hits you with bad news--you have an essay due in two weeks and its time to freak out. It's hard enough when you don't even understand the question.

2. Trying to think of a topic:

You find the motivation to start researching topic ideas, but in reality, you're Google searching "what should I write my essay about?" and hoping to get lucky.

3. Finally sitting down to start writing:

You're beginning to write the first few sentences and you're feeling good, but as time progresses you have less and less of and idea of what you're even writing.

4. Having to change your topic again:

You have to accept the fact that your last topic made absolutely no sense, and it's back to the drawing board. This time, you're looking for a topic that is much more simple.

5. Having a huge surge of energy:

Suddenly your brain starts to work and you turn into an absolute writing machine and nothing can stop you. Before you know it you're on page three and feeling good.

6. Reaching an extreme low point:

So you thought nothing could stop you, but maybe you were wrong. You've reached a wall and your mind is completely blank.

7. Procrastinating for hours:

Now the procrastination begins; social media is your worst enemy and you find yourself looking up cat videos on YouTube and Instagram stalking people you don't even know.

8. Finally finishing at 2:00 a.m. and printing it out:

You feel as though your life's work can been completed, and as the pages print you just want to curl up in a ball and never type another word again.

9. Feeling relieved that this experience is officially over:

After you hand your paper in to the professor you feel absolutely blessed that this experience is over and that you can finally sleep for the next 12 hours.
