  • If your course work is really troubling you and you just can’t keep up (like yours truly) I’d recommend a website called Digitalessay.net. It’s really helpful and got high quality writers. Obviously if you have the time and the ability to do work yourself then you should but if you’re really down in the dumps then this is the service you should turn to.
