Well, my Sunday estimate of 17/30 pages done wound up being a bit of an understatement, as a week of all-nighters (and, shockingly, more than a couple wake-uppers) just concluded with the completion of an unintentionally lengthy PR paper about Dracula and his effect on Romanian tourism, which clocked in at sixteen double-spaced pages. Not monstrous, but still the third longest paper i’ve written at Drexel, and long enough to meet the class’s Grad-student length requirement even though I took it as an undergrad.
Add that to my Directing analysis and my discussion of France and the forces Globalization, plus four sundry reponse papers that Aim and I managed to dash off at the last possible second, and I come to a grand total of seven assignments, accounting for 15,329 words over 43 total pages, researched from 37 cited sources, compiled over seven days of intermittent work, including one three hour hit-n-run at Penn’s library with Erika, two separate login names to the Drexel library eResource site, and a total of over two solid days’ worth of reading and writing.
I’m tempted to go downstairs to do some shots as celebration, but i was just informed that i owe my Ethics Professor another paper by Monday. Since when can a Professor make me do a paper that I want to drop as my lowest grade? Just drop the friggin’ zero, goddamnit, I was smart enough to do well on the first two. I have half a mind to turn in a blank piece of paper; she’s from the philosphy department, maybe she’ll find me ironic. Not to mention that I have about three hundred pages of reading to do on Sunday and Monday to prepare for my PolySci final, as I skipped about three weeks of class because i found it to be insipid.
Okay, maybe just one shot…
