I put forth too much effort on school I am beginning to believe; I am critiquing a fellow student's paper right now, and everything about it is sad. The section titles must be in 20 pt. font and almost all of the pages are 3/4 full with extra wide margins. I am guessing this paper is around 1500 words at best, when it was supposed to be 10 full pages...

Why do I even try? I am almost at 2000 words just in introduction and theoretical frameworks.... (I have an extension).

It looks like you've been charred. I'm going to say a prayer for you; let me know if it works.

I don't think I ever turned in a paper that was as long as it was "supposed" to be.

Really? I recall that about 40% of my time at university was spent condensing and rewording to get in under the word limit. I don't recall that many people struggling to meet the limits.

Thankfully I never had any professors that were strict about page length requirements. I (as well as they) always took the tack that page requirements are a guideline as to how long a paper might have to be to go into appropriate depth on the subject. I tend to have a very streamlined thought process so that makes my writing pretty concise, bordering on sparse.

I managed to mess up a booking. Going to London for a weekend the 24-25th of November, and booked the hotel room for the 23th...I really don't get how I made that mistake. To make matters worse, I booked a non-flexible one, and the website showed the 24th as fully booked.

Still, I send an e-mail, asking if there is anything that could be done to at least partly fix the mess I got myself into...and they moved my booking to the 24th for a 10 pound surcharge.

TL,DR: booked a room at a 'fully booked' hotel by booking it for the wrong night first.
