I don't do those papers..or atleast not yet. But, I have been taking mid-term tests all week this week and my last one is tomorrow. They are an hour and a half each and I don't think I did the greatest on my Latin and English one I took today..:-/

There are websites online where people can actually download term papers.

However, becareful because many teachers are aware of this issue, and there's actually many sites created to help teachers find or detect plagiarized term papers. So before trying to download anything, make sure you know your teacher really well.

I however recommend doing the research by yourself, it's safe and you truly learn by writing the term paper yourself. A lot of teachers give the option to students to pick a topic. I for once have picked subjects of my interest and I have to say that I've enjoyed working on most of my term papers.

Now in case you're asigned a topic you have no interest whatsover, then go ahead and download a freakin' term paper. There's nothing more annoying than finding endless information about a boring or complicated subject.

I prefer term paper a lot more to exams. At least you're most likely guaranteed to get a good great on a term paper you worked really hard on, than to study your ass off and then forgetting what you studied for the day of the exam.

My best piece of advice is, pick a topic that will give them hell. Good teachers love a troublemaker.

For example - write a paper on why Euclid was wrong. And, from that, the very foundations of geometry are wrong, meaning that this class we took had no point.

Or write about why John Thomas Scopes was the Messiah (if you're into that kind of thing).

Write about why modern music is hazardous to one's health.

Write about why Dickens sucks. (In more sophisticated terms.) (No offense intended to Dickens or any Dickens fans.)

The trick is to pick a topic that no one else will think of, and write it well. Wins every time. Which reminds me, I need to go finish my paper on the topic of the century. Saviorism.


God wants you to send me some money.

My angel side says Miss James is right and my devil side says Geeks is right! ;)

My Senior year at university, yes good ole NKU Geeks, I had a 50 page policy paper due. I started it in October and finished it in April. I am so glad I didn't procrastinate. That paper was 50% of our final grade in the class. I got an "A" thank God!!! I did it on Nursing Home Quality of Care and our government's role in regulating it. I know that probably sounds morbid to most but I am a Social Worker and although now I work in the education field, I started out doing social work in nursing homes and hospitals with the geriatric population. It was sickening to me on what I found once I started researching the lack of care our elders get when they are ill or in their final days.

I def agree with Miss James on picking a topic that you are interested in and want to learn more about. You'll be surprised how easy it will be for you to write your paper. Everything will flow!

Good luck Kayla!

I must admit I plagarised some of my papers on Mao Tse Tsung and the Long March-Great Leap Forward but that was because I was lazy. Yep, lazy.

Yes! We had to write one on "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens.

Yeah, I know. Our teachers have software now that allows them to scan the product for possible plaigarism. And that's cheating, anyway! I wouldn't do something like that. I wouldn't be able to go very long without admitting it, anyway.

LOL... That's a good one.

I'm currently working on my senior research paper. The beautiful thing is I get to pick my topic. So I either go with Queen or something to do with GLBT issues. I figured Queen would be too typical for me so I'm now working on the history of glbt discrimination.

I would love to see your report on John Lennon's murder.

A couple of months ago I watched this show on the Biography channel about Mark David Chapman and his motives to kill John Lennon.

Actually, I just found out that it will air again, the next Monday. You might want to watch it, it might help your report:

Ohh, I would love to watch that. I've seen several shows on it, but I don't think I've seen that one. My first source was the internet, then the last 3 are books. Well I have to type the final copy so it will be on my computer, I can send it to you when it's all finished. It will be a few weeks though. I'm busy busy busy!


Oooh, How are things going at "the big place" Amanda? :-)
