the subject of my paper
I have a midnight internet curfew again…. *sigh* won’t be on after then. :/
bibliography and then I’m dooooonneeeee
I think we’re grammar spirit animals.
you might be right there, my dear. XD
update on paper: Conclusion thesis-restatement sentence refuses to come
Another gem would be “what does ‘catharsis’ mean? Maybe you could just say ‘letting go of emotion.’”
because we all know how lovely it is to read a paper that’s been dumbed down a bit, right? Or when they don’t understand the way commas and listing works, and that’s third grade.
For a paper (or anything really I suppose) It goes after the closed parenthesis. Four years at a college preparatory school, hellz yeah ;D
does the period go before or after the parenthesis?
My favorite peer editing part is when the person looks at your paper decides it’s “too long” and then gives up.
I liked the bit where he said ” ‘begs the question’ is weird, take that out.”
listening to “Radioactive” while writing a Hiroshima paper… is this a thing I do now?
This is another reason why I hate group work…
and then the part where it’s required to have peer edits and the other person’s an absolute numpty…
I HATE WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT. It frustrates me to no end. I thought I was the only one.
Bahaha, no, I wish. People just write like they talk and then complain about bad grades. >:(
Try finding that same sentence in a College English class. It’s pops up a million and seven more times than in high school papers. And it’s actually depressing.
Sounds depressing, yeah. I just wish people would actually pay attention to the kind of material they make people read and edit for them. :/
I hate peer-editing. “Basically, Japan said ‘no comment’.” is NOT an acceptable sentence to be in an essay.
