This thread is so dead. I rescued it from the bottom of the 3rd page. Come on, juniors. We're all stressed overachievers. We should have plenty of things to talk about
Today I was freaking out.
So about 2 weeks ago I discovered this awesome summer program, and the deadline was today at 7:59 PM. All week, I've been chipping away at this (very extensive) application, which includes 5 essays, a teacher recommendation letter, a parent recommendation letter, a mailed consent letter and a transcript. (Thankfully, all the mailed stuff is due next month, but anyway.)
So, being the fantastic procrastinator that I am, I put off everything until the last minute. Today I wrote 4 essays, the last two of which I started at 7:04 PM.
7:25 PM. Frantically typing.
7:42 PM. Finished one. Crap, application's due 17 in minutes.
7:45 PM. *Starts last essay* OK, I have time. I'll be fine.
7:55 PM. Oh. My God. I'm not even done. *Startstypingnonsense*
7:56 PM *LOGS ON* IT TAKES SO LONG TO LOAD.
7:58 PM *COPY AND PASTE.* Breathe. *COPY AND PASTE.*
7:59 PM Why isn't it working? What...one of my essays is over the word limit?
NOOO, this is not happening. *deletes important sentence, hits resubmit*
8:00 PM *crosses fingers, waits for blank page to load, prays that the time stamp will say "7:59 PM"*
It doesn't. It says "8:00 PM."
I missed the deadline by one minute.
