>turn it in as is
>get a good score

why live in a world of dualism? why accept disappointment when praise is always given?

>I have done my best

That is about all the philosophy one needs.

As a senior graduating this semester, I can honestly say I've checked out. I half ass my papers and still receive low 90% on all of them. I took a mid-term exam last week expecting to receive a C and I received a 93%. I just don't even give a fuck anymore. I'm more concerned with starting grad school and reading and writing about the kind of shit I choose. I feel like I could write a first draft thesis in 1 semester if I cared enough. I'm sure a lot of you who are grad students or nearly graduated have similar experiences.

Honest truth:

It's 5:00 a.m. and I'm about to call in sick from my job as a copywriter. I threw together a piece in about an hour and I know that my boss will not only accept it but praise me for doing it.

One of the truths that maybe a lot of you will have to learn is that no one gives a fuck WHAT you wrote (let alone wants to read it) so long as that you have written something kind-of-sort-of coherent with 1 or 2 agreeable points.

My poetry is the only writing I care about these days.

>made to read North and South for final year of English in school
>it is one of the most boring and inflated novels of all time, with four interesting chapters and two hundred pages describing the shithole that is Milton and what a pure virginal Victorian slut Margaret is
>literally just skip to the chapters where they're having dinner, never finish the book, use some for roach and just read Hamlet again and again instead
>get given tons of essays on it, pretend I'm a feminist and make up fake critical quotes, do this for every question given and my exam
>get an A** and a copy of my essay is given to the headmaster

Honestly, that book is as dry as a nun's cunt and the Cambridge Pre-U is a bullshitters paradise.

well, you truly plagirized it from your subconscious.

also, which subreddits do you frequent?

>tfw teacher thought I plagiarized one of my essays
>didn't take any disciplinary action or provide any evidence
>instead gives me D- and tells me to write my own work in the margins

I didn't even dispute that shit. Not even worth it.

Feel you m8. Almost all of my essays seem mediocre, but I rarely get anything lower than an A. Professor's always complement me on my writing, and I'm left to wonder why or how my work is good.

I just state information, validate information with a source, and then write a conclusion.
