I have a 30 page paper due in three days and look what I'm doing...absolutely nothing.
Why does any paper have to be 30 pages long?
It difficult enough to explain and give opinions in more than one paragraph.
I'm on page 8 and it's starting to sound like I'm saying the same thing but I'm rewording the sentences.

Yes, yes. That is how it goes.

Is it a research paper or more of an editorial?

It's a research paper. I've finally finished it, but I'm afraid to read it over since I know I'll cringe since I can just sense how bad it is.

I'd offer to read it for you but 30 pages is a bit much. Best of luck to you!

Anyway, right now I've got very little work so not much to complain about in that department.

Don't worry, I wouldn't want to torture you (or anyone else for that matter) with 30 pages. Pretty much everything else is going okay for me. But that just ruined my entire sleep schedule.

45 sounds much worse. I don't even deserve to complain. I did end up completing it, but I've yet to hear anything about it since turning it in.

Hey, at least you are done!! Be proud of the fact that you actually completed it haha, Id actually be interested in reading about the history of book binding, was it a difficult topic to research?

It wasn't necessarily difficult. Though it did take a while to find good information. Once I found something to write about t wasn't hard...it was just long and painfully boring. I know more about the history of books then any person should know right now.

HAHA, yeah im in the same boat i can ramble on for hours about the Maya's land and sea faring trade before Spanish colonization, on the bright side you now have a plethora of knowledge that you can bust out randomly and i guarantee you other people will not know what your are talking about (comes in handy when dealing with people who constantly say things to attempt to impress others with their knowledge)

So I can't read it . I like reading no matter what it is. Your head can never be filled with to much knowledge.

Yeah, I'll be the life of every party with my random bookbinding facts! I do find that every now and then if I meet new people and the conversation turns dull I'll come up with a random fact. That either gets people talking or it makes them fall into a terribly awkward silence.

Perhaps if I get a good grade on it I won't be ashamed of showing it to others...so until then :).

I can see the awkward silence happening, its not everyday the icebreaker in a conversation is something along the lines of, "Did you know that *blank* (since I don't know) was the first resin used to bind books!?"

I started the essay by talking about scrolls and only got to 'books' by either page 3 or 4. The oldest "book" was The Book of the Dead from good ol' Egypt. I'm not so sure how great that would as a conversation starter though, especially with the artsy students I associate with every day.
