I'm rather pleased with the way it has turned out and I'm hoping that it's what my professor was looking for. He told us that he wanted us to get the experience of Buddhism this semester and to write a "journal style" essay about it, so that's what I've done.
He's given us the option to hand it in tonight or, if we need the extra time, to hand it in next week. I think that I'll probably just hand it in tonight since I have it finished and can't add anything without going way over the page limit.
I haven't even started the other essay and I know that it is going to be harder for me to write than this one was. Thankfully, as I reread the book that I'll be writing on, I'm coming to understand the question more clearly. The only problem is that this essay is due on Monday and it's a very hefty penalty for lateness, so I have to make sure I get it done on time. It's going to be really tight since I have class tonight and my Reiki course from 10-6:00 on Saturday. I'm planning on bringing my laptop to Jboy's with me this weekend so that I can work on it while I'm there and still get to spend time with him.
