High School Self is officially ashamed of College Self  
In high school, I would've been able to knock off a five page paper in a forty minute period, no problem. Now, I've spent all night on this paper and I still didn't finish in time. And I can't even say that the work was harder or that I was actually trying. It wasn't, I wasn't. I just wanted to get it done and didn't care about the quality.

So College Self is actually the same as High School Self, I've just gotten worse at everything. AWESOME.

For someone who loves learning so much, I am awfully bad at school. I literally have no idea how I manage to make decent grades. Let's hope my dumbass luck holds out.

Also, Word 2010 is, if it's even possible, more annoying than Word 2007.

WHOA. Seriously? I am incredibly impressed by that rate. That said, just BREATHE, okay? You are not worse in ANY way. College self has just recognized that there's more to a paper than spewing things out in a structured form. *hugs* We all have our down nights. It's finals! There's so much going on, it would take a miracle to produce only our best work. You're amazing and incredibly smart. Stay strong, okay?

Thank you so much, I needed that. I'm feeling much better now that that paper is gone from my life and the exam I felt very unprepared for went pretty well. I just need to remember to keep calm (and carry on) and stay away from the Internet. It will always be my downfall. This is my last break for today. I just have to stick to my schedule for the next two days and it should all be good. I've made it all the way to sophomore year, I can do it! *deep breaths*

Yeah, my high school was not very challenging and it let the nerds get away with a lot. I'd usually skip a class or two and write the paper the day it was due. Now that I think about it, I could probably do that because I was in a library where I just had to sit there and not draw attention to myself (since I was skipping) and all the good internet was blocked.
