    Thought I'd post a non-volatile topic for once. [​IMG]



    I plead guilty to several of these. [​IMG] Andrew is a good friend of mine, but I haven't gotten to see him since Memorial Day. [​IMG]

    My personal favorite:


    The Effects of Procrastination



    9 pages with title and page numbers.......

    That's all.

    You have no idea how many times I've procrastinated, then launched into an explanation of why my paper/project will be terrible. [​IMG] And yet, it never turns out bad.[​IMG]

    I'd be a world class procrastinator.



    ......If I ever got around to it.

    I got to the point where I could churn out a paper the night before while doing multiple things.My better work was always that first(and only) draft. I have been teaching my dd how to write a paper,but sadly the *flow* of thought just is not happening for her. She is finding it to be such a tortue to write a paper.

    [​IMG] I'm gasping for breath right now. [​IMG] You picked the right friends, Q9. [​IMG]

    I'm guilty of many of those... But #4 is the one I repeat most often. I'll have to show that to other homeschoolers.

    But WHY is it always the Andrews who are the goof-offs? [​IMG] I'm not kidding! It's ALWAYS the Andrews. [​IMG]

    Quote:Here's the weird thing - in person, he is the most grounded, common-sense person you'll ever find. Extremely likeable, but you'd never expect insanity like that unless you've known him as a good friend for 5 years. [​IMG]

    I confess, I've thought about doing #5 several times. Both writing the essay AND throwing the book. [​IMG] Never thought of doing #10. Hmmm... Maybe I'll do my Jane Eyre book report to the tune of "Dixie."
