YEP I GOT A 99% ON MY ESSAY STOP, DO NOT SKIP STRIGHT TO THE ESSAY, READ EVERYTHING BEFORE IT FIRST MODS- IF YOU DEEM THIS WORTHY FOR ANOTHER PART FORUM, FEEL FREE TO MOVE IT Yep you read it right I wrote my first college paper and it’s about Pokemon and I want to share it with you. Well, first of all, my assignment- I had to pick one of 10 topics and write a 500 word (minimum) essay about it. If I didn’t like one of the topics I could talk to the professor about a different one. I did like one of the topics, but got turned off by one word; you might know what it is. If you guessed outdoor you are right. So I ask her if I can ignore the word outdoor and do it on Pokemon and she says yes to both. So I head off to the library after class to start working on it. I got so involved in this paper, I lost track of time and realized that I only had 30 min to save my work, log off computer, hurry across campus to the marketplace (cafeteria), eat and get to my next class. I normally give my self an hour for this. After I was done with my classes for that day I headed to the library and finished the paper. Over the weekend I went to 4 leagues, yes 4 and showed people my paper and got feedback/proofreading from them. Then I did some revising on Sunday night. On Tuesday I turned the paper in. Today, Thursday I got my paper back. 2 funny notes- Look at this screen shot, http://s190.photobucket.com/albums/z139/ACASP13/?action=view¤t=powerpointenglish.jpg, this screen shot is of a PowerPoint she showed us in class. Read the last bullet. When she said this in class I was laughing on the inside, saying to myself….. SHOULD I DO MY ESSAYS LIKE THIS? In case you were wondering NO I DIDN’T TURN MY PAPER IN LOOKING LIKE THIS Also, for you guys on AIM who talk to me (Mainly People from OMAR CHAT)- Spell Check was most definitely the play for this paper and all my future college papers. Before I get to my paper I just found something else about this assignment today. See in this course requires 5 500 word essays (10% of final grade, each), 1 Term Paper (30%), and Participation, Assignments, Test, Quizzes (20%). I thought this was one of the 10% essays, it wasn’t, this was because it was our first paper. I found this out after class today when I asked her the grade I got on it; the returned paper had no grade only comments. Scroll over the quote box below for the Professors comments if you want to read them now, if you want to read the comments after you read the paper scroll over them later. The Professor then told me that she will count this has a grade on an individual student bases, so if someone liked their paper and will think they will get a good grade, have the Prof count it, If a student doesn’t like their paper and know they will get a bad grade on it, they don’t count it. I think I am going to count it. Why that long winded last paragraph was important- I don’t have a grade on it yet, so don’t ask what I go on it. Here are the Proffesor’s comments, read now, read later, your choice. Now that I got your attention, a serious note- As I was writing this paper, I was thinking about other players, why they play and the attitudes they show while playing and not playing this game. Pokegym- your “assignment”- Before you read my paper take a minute and ask yourself why you started to play this game. Then read the rest of the “assignment” below the essay (Note there are errors my Professor caught, not editing this to show exactly what I turned in. Also excuse the bad formatting of the essay, the vBulletin system is preventing me from putting an indent in the paragraph) Here is the essay and topic if you frogot what it was Now Pokegym- Ask your self why you still play this game, how has the game positively affected your personality and life and negatively affected your personality and life. Take the time between now and Battle Roads to reflect on those positives and negatives and determine what you have to do to make those positives aspects come out more and make those negative aspects disappear. Pokegym- Please don’t post any thing of a flaming or bashing nature, this post if meant to reflect on the past to better the future. Lets have a good season, good luck to all. -THE FT. LAUD. LOUD MOUTH.
