Drowning in the Forest

I'm drowning in a sea of works cited/is this MLA style/ Did I fall asleep in my sandwich at 3 a.m. again/can't find my flip flops/overwhelmed with the assignments that seem to try to outweigh all of the others. In other words I'm drowning in a sea of paper. How many trees do we need to kill to prove that we can think clearly and function as citizens in this country where you can push a broom or wear an orange vest and make more money than what we're making as college students and even as grads. Oh, Lord, I've slipped into self pity and venting as I always do when every professor decides to assign a 10-20 page paper with bibliographies we won't even use. Do they really want us to write half-assed papers at the last minute? I didn't think so, so why pile it on now? If they want us to succeed, how about thinking of a more modern assignment than writing a paper. I am going nuts, so there's my wildcard whining blog!
