I have to admit, I am kinda pumped up right now. For a really weird, and some of you will say, wrong, reason. The reason?
My English Honors Research Paper.
Now, let me explain as you pick your jaws up from the floor. This research paper is big. And it is a big part of my grade. i.e. It is counting for my final exam grade in the class; therefore, there is plenty of incentive not to mess up
We just got the assignment two days ago, and it is due June 6th. And the next month is strictly regimented. It is to be in MLA format. Sources are needed to be secured by i believe may 5th or 6th. Each member of the class has to hand in four sets of 25 index cards, with notes written on them. Yes. 100 index cards. And the teacher will be using www.turnitin.com to check for plagarism. Therefore, she wants us to be flipping out over using even one word that is the same in a sentence we are quoting. eep.
ANd now, do you all want to know my topic?
Here it is...(BTW: I ask that you not turn this into a polticial flamefest, that is clearly not the intent of this post. the topic of my paper is not political in nature. it is engineering. architecture.)
9-11: The Role of the Design and Construction of the World Trade Center in its Rise and Fall.
and the title will most likely be...
9-11: Death of An American Icon.
Oh yea. No internet sources. *bangs head into floor* This will make it oh so interesting. Right now, I might be spending around 24-27 hours this week in our public library looking throught microfiche film for old articles on the WTC. Mehh. And they wont let me take out their copy of the 9-11 Commission Report because its a reference book. Whaa. It doesnt help that we need all our sources by May 5th or so.
So for the next month or so, I won't be on much, if at all, because I'm gunna have my head in a book constantly. Then I'm going to a spa.
Wish me luck... 8)
