Here are some essays and such that I've written for school assignments. I'm posting them here because I hate wasted effort, and I might as well do something with them. You might get something out of them; who knows?
By the way, have you ever noticed how double-spacing seems to do much more than double the length of a paper? Most of these were at least three pages long; single-spaced in the browser, they seem to come to about a page, if that.
If you like these, or even if you don't, you might want to see my thoughts regarding my school district and paranoia in general.
Yes, the English is somewhat...archaic. I saw a quote from Tolkien 5 minutes before writing it, and decided I should try for epic and lyrical myself. I don't know if it worked or not.
I got a B-. My teacher said my ideas were "unique" but "without clear organization".
5 out of 7. I got in trouble for not spelling out MIT and GNU, as well as not backing up my claims. I wanted to, but unfortunately was restricted in length. I think if I had gone into detail on all my points, the paper would have run to 10 pages or so.
This is the first essay in this whole series that I wrote without intentionally setting my own "unique" views against other views mentioned in my class that annoyed me.
No grade on this yet, either.
