I write in this thread often, but I guess it's because I lack the academic support in my life.
That sounds like a good topic. I once did a research project on the legal and ethical aspects of a person's right to die for a Health Policy class. How did you do on the paper?

But an A! Ive never even gotten an A before. *superhappyexplosion*

congrats to you both!!

I think these are my current grades:
Math - B
Philosophy - B
Physical Geo - C
English - ......... C or D?

I made a promise to my brother (and myself ) that I'd improve my GPA and bring it up from my first semester's 3.33 to a 3.5.
I dunno if that'll be happening.
I've been ditching class and turning shit in really late.
I gotta get my motivation back.

hey guys, need your help!

I'm writing a seminar thesis at the moment and I'm not sure about how to quote an internet source multiple times. I would use a footnote the first time and then give the link. And if I use the same source on the same page? I mean is there something like 'see loc. cit.' for quoting a book?

Yep, if you're sourcing it multiple times in a row, without another source in between, you can use Ibid. But, if you use another source in between the two, you have to fully cite it when you use it again.

Does anyone have tips on how to remember the the many rules required to solve specific math problems? I ask because I always forget to do something in long algebra problems that cause the answer to be wrong. I'd appreciate in tips in better remembering them. There are just so many things to remember.

Yeah, collecting like terms is exactly the kind of thing I forget. Knowing when to add or subtraction numbers on different sides of an equation, when to make the denominators the same number and other rules in algebraic math.

I sweep, so if anyone needs help on their sweeping technique, I'm the man to ask.

Roughly speaking, how far apart should I position my hands on the broomstick in order to maximise my sweeping power?

I find the most effective way is the left hand on top, and the right hand about 10cm lower down, this gives me more power in the right hand.
