Do the Right Thing

Posted on March 17, 2008 @ 4:37 pm

I did something that I am not proud of the other day. I purchased a custom written essay for my college English class. I really struggle in that class and there is one girl who gets awesome grades in it. I offered her twenty dollars to write me an essay and dummy it up just a little bit, so that the teacher would believe that I wrote it.

I have a friend that will buy term papers for every assignment, so I guess I should not feel so bad. But, I really do and I am finding that it is starting to make me physically ill. I am not the type of person who can even tell a lie and get away with it because I always feel too guilty. That is why I knew I had to go to the teacher and come clean.

She was actually not as hard on me as I thought she would be. She said she was proud that I was telling the truth now and she gave me some extra assignments to make up for it. So, because I did not want to write one paper, I now have to write five book reports for cheating. But, at least I did the right thing and can live with myself now.
