Which extended essay did you choose?

Hey y'all!

So I just find it interesting to see what everyone choose as the extended essay prompt. So please, feel free to share which prompt you chose, and if you like, give a little description on how you wrote your essay.

I personally chose the "between living and dreaming" prompt, and approached it from a purely scientific/psychology position.

    "Time you found something you weren't looking for." I wrote about finding a robin's egg in my yard when I was five and breaking it accidentally.

    I picked the dream one, and wrote about literally nothing. I was really happy with the finished product but I feel like I didn't really have a strong and direct thesis...

    I did between living and dreaming, like it seems almost everyone did. I did mine in sort of short story format. It was really like 3 little snapshots into 3 peoples lives.

    I did the from Play-Doh to Plato one. It's about an aspect of my development and finding my true aspiration.

    Living and dreaming. I wrote about guessing :) I have a very limited science background, but I threw in a Schrodinger reference. It is shorter than most, but I think it turned out well.

    Daughter responded to the from Play-Doh to Plato prompt.

    I'm torn between playdoh-plato in which I use stream of consciousness and a time I found something I wasn't looking for in which I explain how I concluded there's an order to the universe.

    I wrote 6 words for the 'reverse psychology' prompt.
    You read it right. 6 words.

    ^You might get in on sheer cheek alone...

    I did the between living and dreaming one. It's a little over a page, double-spaced...

    Am I the only one who chose the prompt that allowed you to ask any question!?! I think it was the fifth one...
  • helloicarushelloicarus Posts: 16Registered User New Member
    I did pose your own question as well
  • jake1313jake1313 Posts: 173Registered User Junior Member
    Yup, I made my own question.

    Am I the only one that did the "unscientific" method?

    What 6 words did you write?

    Complying with policy on plagiarism I can't disclose what I wrote. But I could vaguely describe my 6 words as breaking-the-fourth-wall and hyper-critical.
