I have just ‘finished’ my draft of the summary and evaluation assignment. It is quite possibly the worst paper I have written while in college. But there is not much I can do about it. You see, the articles in which I was to write about were very [insert favorite expletive here] dry and boring. I found it hard enough to read the articles, let along write about them.
Also, I still have no clue what the purpose was of this assignment. As John Mulaney says in his comedy special The Comeback Kid “I don’t know. I know you told me. But I am very small. And I have no money. So you can imagine the kind of stress that I am under.” While Mr. Mulaney is referencing elementary school aged kids in this particular bit, I relate wholeheartedly after this assignment. I truly do not know and not knowing is stressful. This assignment has broken me to the point of not caring. At this point, I do not even know if I will be able to return to this paper to revise. I think it is a lost cause and my time and energy will be better spent on another paper that I actually get what it is I am supposed to be doing with.
Paul McCartney’s 2018 release I Don’t Know states, “What am I doing wrong, I don’t know.” This. This is how I am feeling right now about this paper and this class as a whole. It is only the beginning of week 5, however, and there is still revising and 4 more assignments. Hopefully things will get better and maybe they will if I just get some sleep.
