Thoughts I've Had While Writing An Essay

A few relatable things for anyone struggling to write essays at the moment.

Thoughts I've Had While Writing An Essay
Northstar Technology Group

Just a few of the thoughts that crossed my mind while I was writing a history essay last week.

1. So does he want a thesis? Does he not want a thesis?? Can this man make his MIND OH MY LORD.

2. I don’t understand how this is supposed to be four to five pages. What is the purpose of making it that long?? I’m just going to put useless fluff in to make the page requirement anyway so why have one?

3. Who cares about this essay topic? No one. I bet he doesn't even care about this topic.

4. If I type it single-spaced, it’ll trick me into thinking I’m actually writing less; but when I double-space it, I will be pleasantly surprised to find out I wrote SO MUCH.

5. When was the last time I ate? I think I deserve a snack break.

6. Would he notice if I cursed the syllabus halfway through a paragraph? I feel like he’s not going to read this in full anyways.

7. Why doesn’t this have a rubric why why why.

8. Why are we writing in a style that isn’t MLA? Just make us do it in MLA. We aren’t historians. Please.

9. Wow, this textbook makes me want to rip my eyeballs out.

10. What is that noise outside? Are the aliens finally coming to take me away??

11. Nope. It’s a snow plow. Great.

12. … And we’re ten words in. I’d say I deserve a nap.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City.

Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
