so much to do. [Feb. 25th, 2001|04:45 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
this sucks.

I've got 3 pages done of my "7 page paper", but the boring half+ remains.

I love how they give us a page length for it... in high school we were always told that it doesn't matter how long it is, just so long as it completely conveys your message. Oh, but not in freshman college classes.... we aren't allowed to think on our own. Every step of what we're supposed to talk about is listed on one of our colored handouts. "Refer to the yellow handout"... "Refer to the pink handout." And if were get confused, the handouts are also on the website, with the appropriate <body bgcolor=..> set.

i'm upset that I have to work on this instead of doing fun stuff like going to canada or going to the magic peace farm. *sigh*

i think it's time to start a count-down until finals are over:

hmmmm.... seems like a long time.

I know what y'mean, it's a pain in the ass to have a set page length. Though I've found that with some of my professors they don't mind if I'm a page off (when it's something as long as 7+ pages anyway) so long as I have a well written 6 pages. I dunno, maybe it's just my school. You're lucky about having finals already, we're just now having midterms! *envies you*

So I should start appreciating what I've got now, right? lol

utterly unrelated to your post... however thought I'd mention that LJ got a mention on MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.com/news/535681.asp)

Not sure of where would be an appropriate place to place that.

Good luck with your finals!
