The problem is that this is a research paper and needs numerous sources and citations. I just don't feel like spending that much time quoting and citing. Maybe I'll write the paper now and just do all the citations on Monday.

That's why Mr. Pussy's is such a cool place to hang out. You can't have guests over there.

bad call. it's a huge pain in the ass to do citations and find sources but trust me if you "dredge" as my english teacher used to call it and come up with the quotes and sources first you can just stick them in the paper. going back to do it is confusing and you'll do more work to edit your paper to make sense. plus you might find that you made an argument that goes against what the sources say is true, so better to be familiar with the literature first.

but yeah, fucking sucks to do. and i only have like 15 pages i need to write but its on 3 different topics!

Pretty much.

A couple of years ago a few of us were involved in an "I've Never" game. It was quite interesting...

Mine's a five page paper on the death penalty. I have some research, probably enough, but not from enough sources. I think we need like six. I've about three. I've got enough information already. My first body paragraph is loaded, about five different citations (not quotes, but summaries of the info). Four body paragraphs to go.

I'm a terrible student so I couldn't ever imagine doing what you are doing. I know I have been throwing a lot of hugs your way but I really can't imagine being able to do what you're doing.
