    Default Just wrote my first undergraduate essay

    Boy is it bad, I mean the content's good but I've completely fucked up every single aspect of the prescribed essay style. Just wondering if everyone's first coursework essay was like this... you fucked up a lot of the style or you got it pretty quickly?

    I'm tempted to send it to someone who is pretty good at writing shitty university essays so they can tell me if it's good but I guess it's a long shot

    "What else?" said the secretary.

    oh yeah i guess some professors use that online program that scans the internet. i wonder if they would catch forums like this. either way it wouldnt be plagiarism, it would just expose your seedy online identity.

    Already wrote a philosophy paper (which I got a B+ on) and a Polysci research paper (which I have yet to get back). I've never found writing style that hard to catch on to, but I think that's more of a personal talent. It was especially easy with the research paper, since the majority of time I spent "writing" it I was reading other papers related to my topic.

    havent written any papers so far. my philosophy class next semester fulfils an 'advanced composition' requirement so im probably going to be writing a fair amount in that class.

    Paper writing is really a labor of love Hicky, NO ONE writes "well" on a first draft. Howard Zin is arguably the best essayist in history in the past 50 years in America and HE had upwards of 4 drafts before getting something published. Mind you his drafts were edited by "professional" editors that spend their lives doing that shit. All and all you are a freshman, don't beat yourself up over one paper.

    Your an absolutely wonderful man, any girl that is yours is lucky and I know that from personal experience. ~KMT

    I'm gonna die when I go to collage. It takes me ages to even start one, and they're always terrible.

    My English class is below my level.
