emma; only girl in the world

Paper Trail

It's down to crunch time.

I've got 12 days to finish two papers. Two papers for two subjects I have a hard time in. Great.

Pan Pil 17: The good thing about this paper is that it's about malls. I have to somehow analyze it so that it'll be in the context of popculture. The bad thing is it's supposed to be in Filipino. Whoopee! It's a group paper too (and our final test), so I'm not sure whether this is going to be a good thing or a bad thing. I have yet to see.

Eng 10: The good thing? I can't see a great aspect to it right now, but I know I'm going to have to think positively or nothing will come out of it. Actually, now that I think about it, the good thing is that it's going to be in English, and I can come up with more sentences (that mean something). The bad part is my topic is about the characteristics of Kapampangans based on their Folklore and History (!). What the -- ? How am I going to pull this off?

Apart from having to read on the long drawn history of Pampanga (where my dad hails from), I have to think. I know I should be thinking all the time, but I actually have to really think for this one. I have no idea what to write about, how to go about it and everything else. I am clueless.

I can churn out journal entries because they mean nothing and aren't graded, but a paper on Kapampangan behavior... I don't think so. So if anyone has any paper-writing skills here, please help! I am a clueless idiot who has absolutely no idea what she's about to do.

I can't believe I got into college.
