Continuing Work on Research Paper Compression

I continue this essay:

...a way to provide gifted kids with their needed levels of difficulty. Every now and again we'll get students who exhaust the honors and A.P. curriculum in a given subject (typically math or science) but, for the most part, students get a sufficiently engaging education. The problem with this is that, in every subject but math, they're stuck waiting until ninth grade to get it....


This isn't coming out right. I don't know if it's writers block or what, but I just can't produce anything worth reading. I'm not sure if what I wrote before is worth reading. I'm not at all certain that anyone would care enough to read the piece in the first place, and, even if they did, whether my writing would be interesting. I don't know how to make it interesting. I don't know how to take this awful, painfully dry piece of crap and turn it into something a bit more fun.

But maybe I'm not looking for fun.

Or maybe I am. I have no clue. I'm confused, and tired, and I have another application to finish tonight, and I can't do the math homework, try as I might, and I'm going to fail my test on Tuesday.

I'm resisting the urge to write FML here.

Also, if it makes you feel any better, at least your teacher cared enough to read your paper. And it is an interesting topic.
