EL312: How Not to Do Homework, by Karissa

Folks, just a little hint before you start reading things. Make sure you mark in your book or whatever you need to do so that you know exactly what you're supposed to be reading (so that you can later blog about it).

I forgot to do that tonight and, in my state of tiredness and laziness, took my own memory for what I thought was truth. As a result, I ended up reading an essay that I have only now realized I didn't need to read. Well, I'm not regretting it... except that maybe I could have used that precious time to read something that's actually going to be discussed.

(I read "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Denise D. Knight, for anyone who's wondering. We didn't have to... but as a side-note, I also hate articles whose titles are nothing more than the same title of the work the article discusses. How uncreative.)

Resolution: either don't do homework when you're tired (hahahahahaha. Okay, glad I got that out of the way...) or make sure you clearly mark for yourself what you need to read. I guess I forgot that... and I also forgot that my seat for reading is a whole three steps from my computer where I could have looked up the readings online in a matter of five seconds or less... Okay, now I'm just feeling bad for myself.

Regardless, it was an okay reading. I'm just sad we didn't actually have to read it.
