Ok. Now try to imagine what you would do before there was The Internet? When I was in college (and I’m not ancient — I still get carded at bars — sometimes), we had not even heard of a World Wide Web, only Macs had mice, and we used Word Perfect on an MS-DOS operating system. However, we also couldn’t broadcast what we did for fun. We didn’t even have cellphones. So we had to hang out at the quad or go to the library with pockets full of change and stand over copy machines in hot, sweaty fluorescent lit rooms in order to meet people and find out where everyone was hanging out while they procrastinated, so we procrastinated with lots of other people, and we did some wild and crazy things that no one ever tools pictures of or broadcasted around the world. We never made the evening news. I think I miss those days.
I have a Senior Thesis due in two weeks for my Economics major… so I drew a picture of this giraffe.
My paper is about the Massachusetts Health Care reform and writing this thing is so… Incredibly. Dull. But you know what’s not dull??
This is a picture I drew of a polar bear cookie that I got from Starbucks… a couple of months ago.
For me, writing long research essays happens in stages… and it’s the same thing every time.
Stage 1: Google the topic
Stage 2: Watch some of Olan Roger’svideos
Stage 3: Print out articles
Stage 5: Surf Pinterest indefinitely
Stage 6: Underline things in the articles
Stage 7: Pretend the assignment does not exist. Surf Pinterest indefinitely.
Stage 8: Solitaire
Stage 9: Make a new Pandora station
Stage 10: Begin Rough Draft
Stage 11: Make Coffee
Stage 12: Made too much coffee… can’t let it…
