Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

OH Lord...now what do I do?

I finally got the topic's for the essays I have to write this year. I think to most people this would not to as daunting as task as it is for me. Well most of the Children (and that's what they seem to my eyes) in my class wouldn't they have been taught to write at least something.
I'm SCARED and totally without a clue on what to do or how to start! I only have to write a 3 page agrumentive essay, on one of 3 short storys. I haven't written an essay in 25 years! I have no clue how to start or what the say or do.
How do I develope a thesis?
I may be begging my daughter for help. BIG TIME.
I think I will have to take advantage of the that service the library offers to help write a paper from begining to end.
Breath in.
Breath out.
I didn't realize how far behind the times I really am.
I'm sure once I get through this first paper things will be alittle easier. But just starting may be overwhelming.
Any tips? Advice? Prayers? Sage words or wisedom? And instant A essay pill?

My first analytical paper is due tomorrow. Or would be, except at midnight last night our Professors went on strike.
This paper is only 1 page.
How the heck to you form a strong thesis, reference it, argue it and have a solid ending in THIRTY LINES?

He did say, however that this is the hardest of papers to write, as you have to get to the point quickly, with no BS.

Let me know if you find that essay pill....I could use it too!
