It's exam/essay season. To distract myself from mine, I ask you, what essay are you writing (or what was the last your wrote)? How many words? Is it enjoyable?

"Can past and current trends in world population be explained by economic factors?"

I'm a UK university student and all my exams and coursework are done. Because I'm on a computing-based course I rarely got essays anyway though.

I've done all my coursework essays, but I'm gonna revise by re-doing some English literature papers 'cause of my upcoming exam. Last essay question I done was "Wuthering Heights is a bleak and hopeless tale" and then explaining if I agree using page 167 and 169. It's pretty tiring but I'm sure it'll be worth it when the exam comes around.

I was doing a take-home final a little while ago. I've been out of school for the summer for a week now so my lack of effort on it was astounding. I just want to pass.

I'm done with classes for the semester so I'm not currently working on any essays, but I did write one recently based on this book by Alfie Kohn.  It was about 1500 words and I wrote it specifically in relation to the ideas by Kohn that schools overemphasize competition and ideas of schools are too entangled with corporations.  I didn't find this essay particularly enjoyable to write other than the fact that it was pretty quick to write.

Typically I only find essays on history enjoyable when I'm writing them.  The last one of those I did was a few months ago on the Gay Liberation Front, that one came in at a little less than 5,000 words.  It was pretty interesting to write and research.

Done with school now. Just graduated. My last essay was a 30 page paper on Genetic Algorithms (Genetic Algorithms as applied to the Travelling Salesman Problem). I never want to write again.

I'm writing an essay about kids who probably aren't going to get passing grades on their essays. 

I'm doing most of my research in gaming forums.

3 narrative essays due next week based on prompts we have written intros to in the last month. Not too bad, but I'm going to have to work on them this weekend.

Yeah, seems like most of my finals this semester involve writing essays. It's not a big deal, it just sucks that I've been writing essays non-stop this past week. Haven't been able to write a blog in a while because I've been too busy writing about other shit.

Thank God school is out and I am not writing an essay in any way, shape, or form. However, seeing that I am English major, there are innumerable essays in my near future.

My most recent "essays" were a scholarship essay and my personal statement for law school.  I did my personal statement on how Obama considered a repeal of the estate tax to be what he calls "the Paris Hilton Tax Break" and how that relates to me, my life, and my line of work.

The last actual essay I wrote was for a CEGEP English placement exam. Subject was something akin to ''What is the definition of human rights and what are the things that should be seen as universal human rights''.

Been done with school for a month. Now writing my own stuff. I guess the last essay that I wrote was the history of a fake European country that I invented. It is exactly 1400 words.

Yep. "Do you think capital punishment should be banned on a federal and state level?"
