Hmm... I wonder if I should even bother revising my term paper. It's supposed to be 8-10 pages; mine is barely 5. If it wasn't worth so many points, I'd blow it off instantly. Problem is that I'm very terse when I'm explaining things I don't want to explain, and this carries over to research papers on literary figures very well.

Adding fluff to lengthen the paper just sounds like... fluff. It doesn't work.

Maybe I'll find a quote or two to sprinkle around, but that's it. I've said what I wanted to say about Coleridge (he's a failure; he wrote some nice poems, he was a real idealist, but he failed in everything he did in life) and I'll leave it at that.

At least when I get to Maryland (have I mentioned that that's where I'm going to college yet), Technical Writing fulfills a core writing class :P

I reiterate that I should be sleeping now, but sleep does not come. And I'm not desperate enough to aid it with nyquil yet.
