Well I can say that I dont know as much as i thought i did about MLA format. Its crazy how structured everything is.

I felt the opposite. I didn’t know I knew that much, I was kind of impressed. I tell you one thing though; it is definitely a group effort. I can’t wait for the next round!!

Raise your hand if you’re excited that we don’t have a full-on-sit-down-no-sleep-the-night-before-final-test.

MLA Deathmatch was a lot of fun. I did not know i was so good at the MLA format. Though sometimes things seem very confusing MLA is always consistent.

Kirsten said...

I agree Eric =]] We may be in last place but were gonna sneak up behind everone and win the 5 bonus points =]]]] GO GROUP THREE!!!

I am very excited that we dont have a full on sit down no sleep final. I already have two of those and if i had a third one i would go CRAZY!!

Abby said...

Okay, this says that the papers are due Friday... Why was I under the impression that they are due Thursday??

Is it Thursday or Friday?!

Raise your hand if you're super excited to not write any essays for a while...

MLA is so weird. I wish I could just watch other people participate in the deathmatch. It wouls be much more entertaining.

Amy said...

I will raise my hand abby. I enjoy writing the essays, but i am ready for a break. It seems like here at the end there is so much to do and adding an essay and revision and cover letter to it is a lot.

I loved that video clip. That guy was such an a-hole. it was awesome how everyone just listened to him. good stuff.

Crazy to think this quarter is already over. Maybe time does fly when your having fun. Or when life is just insanely busy and chaotic and you barely can remember what day of the week it is yet alone when its the end of a class. Hm. Just a little venting on the ol' blog.
