I'm trying to wrap up paper #4 for my seminary class before I leave for Mexico on Friday. This one is to be written about the purpose and function of the tithe in the OT.
I geared my direction of the paper around not utilizing sources outside of the Bible and our assigned course commentary, just like I have in my previous three papers.
I'm wrapping up page 5 (it has to be between 7 and 10 pages), and I just hit the point where I'm seeing the potential discussion points swell, and how much my paper would be enhanced by researching some outside sources for inclusion in this paper.
But I would need more time than I have before I leave to expand it and make sure I maintain cohesive quality. I so desperately do not want to ask for an extension on this. I've done very well in the class so far, and I know I could probably get one if I sent the prof what I have and say that I want to make it better, but I think I care more about not having to ask for an extension. I would rather this professor remember me for not being an inconvenience to his schedule by asking to turn a paper in a week and a half late and writing a mediocre paper, than writing a stellar paper and interrupting his expected work flow.
Okay, now that debate is resolved in my head. I get distracted very easily. Back to writing.
