13 January here now, and the ban that I requested from chat room is starting to have the desired effect. My brain seems to finally be waking up to the idea that I need to get my assignment done by the 15th and it has no choice. Yes it is still throwing a hissy fit and doesn't wants to write but I have been trying to make it all morning, with brief breaks to come on here and look at forums. My essay is on animal assisted therapy. Looking into the benefits with 3 to 4 main areas. Prisons, healthcare, children and resthomes. It only has to be 750 words to 1000 words. I managed to pull off the pre-plan with a great result and I'm now kicking myself that I didn't dumb that down a little so that I could get some more feedback from the marking. Guess when someone is a perfectionist it's hard to do that and I'm still learning that I only need to pass not achieve everything. Pre-plan was 500 words and apart from needing to re-write the intro and the conclusion the body just needs adding too. Really annoying by the mark I got, 96%, and yes that sounds stupid, as most would be glad to get that. But the pre-plan was only worth 5% of my final mark and now I feel pressured and worried. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. Might even post my essay here for others to look at and give feedback. If that isn't allowed then the moderators need to let me know. Missing all my friends and feeling isolated at the moment, so if you end up reading all the, even if you don't have much to say would you mind just typing in Hi and let me know you have been. Thanks for listening to the rambling on a person on the edge of insanity over study.
