While many of you are reveling in the luxury of being done with finals and watching movies with friends, napping, eating chocolates, etc., I will still be sitting here in the library wrangling with the intellectual problem of Ataturk and how to write 4000 words about the historical debate over his reforms. (Due tomorrow, of course.)
This is not a topic that interests me, which is mistake number one with a research paper. I feel like a freshman who has picked a broad topic which supposedly will be easy to write about (global warming, anyone?).
That's really all I have to say. I figured since every else got a chance to whine about finals on the blog, I could too. After this paper, I have four history finals to take, so I will be living crisis-to-crisis for the next seven days, playing whack-a-mole with my tests. But--the consolation--this is the last paper I will ever have to write!! (theoretically) These are the last four finals I will ever have to take!!! Oh joy, oh bliss. After this week, life is just going to be one big peaceful sea of smooth sailing.
