Remarks: I told you to double space it! *remarks from my prof.


It's a common situation:

You're sitting in front of your computer with Word open. Tomorrow, a 10-page paper is due yet your screen is blank. Luckily, those 10 pages only have to be double spaced, so you go up to your Paragraph settings to change it, right?

NO.

You will endure writing all of your pages with single spacing. Even if it seems like it's taking longer. Even if it's harder to read. Even if it makes you think you have less.

Why, in Puff the Magic Dragon's name, would someone ever want to go through such torture?

Wait, my friend, for the very reason so many people do this is nigh:

Although the paper must be ten pages in length, once an entire (yes, entire) five pages have been written in single spacing, the trigger can be set.

For, by only going to the Paragraph settings window, one can set the spacing to "Double," click "OK" and...

Rumble...

Rumble Rumble...

CRASHHHHHHH!!

By the mere click of a button, your paper has magically DOUBLED IN LENGTH.


Dont deny it. Its FUN. and your going to do it again all your term paper writing life.

I'm allowed to make the font 30 times bigger than font size 8.

I'm bad citing resources.
I usually end up writing bunch of quotes and not talk much of what I think about the subject.
It's like the common saying, "they already said everything I'm going to say" kind of thing.
Adding my view on the paper just makes it more redundant.

You're lucky. We have a prescribed setting (single space, tahoma/arial 12) when writing those things.

At our school, we don't type up essays.
We write them by hand.
