Doesnt sound like it, If my Algebra final is any bit like last year's, I should be fine, last years I passed easy. My history final is only over this last nine weeks of school, so im cool there. Science is easy, period. I can pass that final with minor studying. and french, I hate it, prolly will fail that one.

GOOD NEWS essay fans:

You've complained, and I've listened. The new-and-improved DTF1 essay contest is explained in great detail here.

A lot of you don't care for this particular topic so it is no longer the topic. But wait, some of you did like this one. Don't fear, it's still available. I have now provided 10 topics ranging from history to literature and more!

Damnit! I have to write another 3-4 page essay today rant

Any Hindus / experts on The Ramayana out there?

All 3 prompts suck, but I'll probably write my essay on this:

3. Is Rama really never wrong?

Well he did kill someone so if I can justify that I can say he's infallible.

I had an essay due earlier today that I totally forgot about Smack I'm writing that now. I hope they'll accept it late. I used to care about grades, not anymore. I had an A going in this class but need to get about 40% on this paper to have a good shot at passing. My previous paper got an A so hopefully by turning it in less than 12 hours late I can get at least half credit (most classes take away 3.3% - 10% per day being late...hopefully this one is the same pray ).

After that I'll write the paper mentioned in my last post (due tomorrow).

Well that art essay is done. I emailed the TA a copy of it and will drop off a copy in his box tomorrow. It was only 7 hours late so hopefully I'll get some credit for it. I think 7 hours late is quite amazing all things considered - I hadn't started until it was 90 minutes late. Prior to starting I had to walk to the museum, check out some exhibitions, walk to the art library, and then walk back to my apartment (about 3 miles worth of walking). I then had to do some online research and write a 4 page paper.

Now for the other paper. Due tomorrow.

Will these essays never end? What the hell? I'm not an English major. Most quarters I write like 0 essays. I just counted and this quarter I have to write a total of 10 (3 more).

Due tomorrow:
SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY:
In 3-4 pages describe an experience that you have had either a very positive or a very negative outcome and use the ideas from one or more of the books you have read to help you develop a new understanding of why things occurred the way they did and what factors helped bring about this outcome.
Who cares? I haven't had any extreme outcomes - I like to keep everything neither good nor bad. I suppose I could write about how I broke my arm and how I'm afraid of needles now (although I don't think the two events are actually related - I'll say they are). This will be like the 55th time I've written about this event which is probably the best thing that's ever happened to me - if my arm didn't break what would those papers be about?

I also have to write a 1 page essay for cognitive psychology but I haven't even bothered to look at the topic yet since it's so short.

Paper due at midnight (although the professor made it clear that we can have pretty much a 2 week extension if we want it...I don't). I'll pick the topic that's pick a "chapter" and analyze it. Why not the 2nd one:

All beneath heaven knows beauty is beauty
only because there's ugliness,
and knows good is good
only because there's evil.

Being and nonbeing give birth to one another,
difficult and easy to complete one another,
long and short measure one another,
high and low fill one another,
music and noise harmonize one another,
before and after follow one another:

that's why a sage abides in the realm of nothing's own doing,
living out that wordless teaching.
The ten thousand things arise without beginnings there,
abide without waiting there,
come to perfection without dwelling there.

Without dwelling there: that's the only way
you'll never lose it.

Want to write it for me? I hate writing poetry-based essays. You take about 50 words and write 4 pages on them. Luckily I'm done Big Smile Also, poetry essays always turn out better since you can't spend half a page going "And then this happened followed by this and then this happened and then BLAH! ". No plot summary when there's no plot to summarize!

I don't mind writing English analysis papers, but I hate analyzing poetry. Back in high school we read a poem that had a lot of nature metaphors and someone said it had to deal with life and death and I thought, "how the hell did you get that from this?" I can't remember which poem it was Sorry.

I hate reading poetry but I'd rather analyze it - unless it's a ballad (ballad is a poem telling a story, right?). If it's telling a story I get the same problem - nothing but plot summary. I don't know how to write an essay without mentioning the plot. I always get yelled at for it though.

The class also has 5 2-3 page papers each of which is worth 12.5 points. The best 4 count. They are due once a week starting next week. That's it for that class.

I'm writing my final paper for my history of California class. This one is really boring. After every sentence I take like 30 minutes off rant

I'd like to figure out who invented essays and beat them half to death....and then all the way to death.
