The last ever essay rant!

This entry will be just what it says on the box: my last ever essay rant.

I have one 2500 word essay to complete, and the topic just makes me want to kill myself.

Why do some historians argue that the concept of popular culture has outlived its usefulness; does the concept have any lasting value in understanding the cultural world of early modern England?

This sums up everything I hate about Academia. Can you say "who gives a damn?"

Well, it's due Monday, so time to brainstorm and put together some sort of essay plan.

2:10: Okay, so now I have my detailed plan (plus I ate lunch). Now to start writing. The zokutou word-meter site has been suspended!!! OH NO!!!

3:08: 782 words. 15 footnotes. Who is the Queen of Referencing?

5:00: 2031 words. 28 footnotes. Just an intro and conclusion to go. Mini-Crunchie waiting for me in the fridge. NaNo words with which to reward myself. And... if I'm really feeling slack after, I've even got a Buffy 2-parter in need of viewing.

Just... a little... further.

5:34: 2510. Who da man?

The essay question alone sent me to sleep half-way through reading it...

You reference that little bugger, Kayt! Show 'em who's boss.

You know we're all cheering you on from the sidelines, unless you study in silence, in which case we can mime our support.

I think your answer should be along the lines of "historians argue because they are deluded into thinking that if they opine for long enough on any subject it will eventually be taken for fact... plus they are all stupidheads."

:D

Your last one! I'm excited for you. In fact, the phrase 'the last ever essay' is extremely pleasing, whoever it applies to.

Can you say "who gives a damn?"

My question throughout many a philosophy course.

YAY!!! Go Kayt!!! "You go do that essay, you go kick that essays ass, you are the essay master!" Just stay away from Dragons. And don't ask where that came from, I think it was shock that LJ was back up within 24 hours.
