  • I'm so excited

    AHHHH!!! Omgoodness, I just finished my 20pg research paper :yea: and my roommates aren't here to celebrate with me, so I thought I'd come to MC! I've been working on it for just about 20 weeks (with a 3 week break--Christmas break--in between), and I am sooo glad to be done. Tomorrow morning I will turn it in. As much as I loved the topic, I'm tired of writing and editing and all the lovely stuff that goes on with writing a major paper (I am a history major, so I do like writing). This also means I'm that much closer to graduation! 1 class and 10 units left to complete for next quarter. :yea: I just had to share my happiness with someone!

    Ah, while it has been a couple of years since I've had to write papers, I know the joy of turning one in all too well.

    I did a thesis back in 2000, and that was about 25,000 to 30,000 words (however many pages that was). Spent a year on it. It's just a relief to get the damn thing out of you hands and into someone else's!

    Congrats.

        Finishing. That's always the best part of an assignment.

          My goodness! I am so glad for you. I finished my thesis back in 1999. Wanted to drive screwdrivers through my eyeballs! It was too much! And I had pneumonia at the same time. But I was so motivated to finish the blasted thing, I would write early in the morning and late at night, when my meds would hit. And I had a full time job at the same time!

          In other, more concise words, congrats.

          And peace,

            I'm happy to say I haven't had to write a paper in years...

            Though, I guess I'm going to have to type up an essay in Japanese in a couple of quarters.

              :yea: Congrats!!!!
              Good morning, son
              In twenty years from now
              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                  Congrats! There are few feelings in the world more satisfying than handing over a long research paper that you're proud of and never have to work on again-- like a 50lb. weight lifted off your back...

                    LOL, yeah, and when I return all the books I have from our library, it'll definitely be a literal 50 lbs, haha. )

                    Thanks everyone! I turned it in this morning, and everyone in my class was giddy with excitment of being done. Finishing really is the best part of the assignment. I, too, hope I get a good grade on it....and I've gotten positive feedback from peer editors and from the professor, so it looks good!

                    And the 2 page paper I have due tomorrow for another class doesn't seem like anything...
