This has been my first semester back at university studying fulltime in 2 years. 

I'm feeling pretty stoked with myself because my grades are, effectively, the highest yet in my whole 6 years studying. 

I completed three courses this semester. 

(Australian Tertiary Grading System in ascending order: Fail, Pass, Credit, Distinction, High Distinction)
In Aboriginal Education I've received a High Distinction grade.
In English Teaching Grade 7-10 I've received a Distinction grade.
In my Children's Literature course I have yet to submit my final research paper. Due to my high marks on my previous assignments, I will still receive a Pass grade without submitting the final assignment. However, my lecturer has given me special consideration and is allowing me extra time to submit my final paper in order to achieve a higher grade. 

My query is - Do I submit the paper or not? Should I settle with a pass? My brain is really struggling to write this paper for some unknown reason. I began writing the paper but then realised my thesis argument was contradictory so I erased & started from scratch. I've done all the research work, and have all my sources and references lined up...It's just a matter of compiling all that into a concise argument. And it just seems too stressful. I think I'm thinking about it too much. I'm not seeing my psychologist until the 17th of Dec. so I thought I would seek EP peeps' advice.

Go for a walk, take a deep breath, and realise that a pass isn't a fail.
Missed you

Thankyou :)
I need to be told to do exactly just that sometimes. Missed you too, friend. Good to be back.

Took me two months to complete the assignment, but I finally did it. Probably my worst ever bout of procrastination. Got a HD though. **** yeah.
