Seriously! The only bad part about this wonderful gift is for the people that spent all night the night before the essay was due making final changes! Dumb, dumb people! HA! (sarcastic laugh)

I love when we get extra time to procrastinate! Bring on the stress of writing another last minute essay. I should get a trophy or something for this.

I liked the Breaking News! Thank you Mr. Peters for allowing us extra time to finish writing our essay. It was very helpful. If I wouldn't have sat down with someone one and had them look over my paper I wouldnt have done very well.
