How you are *supposed* to write papers...

Yes, it is five am. Yes, I'm about to go to bed. Yes, I have to be on campus at 7:30. Yes, I have been up all night. No, it wasn't fun.

I had a brilliant idea for a paper for my English class. To save time, sort of, I decided to write our paper that is due today on a topic I thought I already knew. I'd done a project on it in high school, and read a little here and there on it since then, so I figured I was more than qualified. I'd write the paper, and then find a hand full of sources, prove myself right, and voila, the easiest paper of my life.

Next time I'm finding all primary peer reviewed sources and writing on the mating calls of the extinct dodo bird because that will be waaaaaaaaay faster. Yeesh. Trying to prove yourself right is just too much work... Hence why it is 5am.

  1. I was wondering what inspired our 1 AM chat session last night. You seemed WAY too awake at that hour... Well, did your paper at least turn out well?
