That is one thing that I really like about college. Nobody ever asks me to write the date.
I have to do it for MLA
either cover page
or at the beginning
it's usually the due date though
I'm an engineering major, so nobody cares about the date Even on exams, the date is printed on the paper.
Also, I finished my English requirements in my freshman year, so I don't have to take any classes that require me to write papers anymore.
you don't have to write any papers?
I have to force myself to like writing those
Yep. The reason why is that I took AP classes in high school, so instead of 3 English classes, I only had to take 1 (although I took two by accident)
Why do you have to force yourself? Writing papers should fill everyone with natural joy
lulz natural joy
I plan on spending decades writing papers
so I might as well start to love it
I took AP classes too
and my ACT tested me out of intro writing
but English classes aren't really the main theme here
the papers are for my other classes
like the sciency ones
or the historical ones
Decades? Doing what? And you'll be fine once you accept the natural joy that is part of writing papers!
And what kind of science classes are you taking that are making you write papers?!
my psych classes have papers
it makes sense because they're about research
to prepare us for grad school
I wanna become an industrial organizational psychologist so I might be a professor for undergrad/grad students
it depends though
there's the practitioner side and the researcher side
most psychologists do both research and practice
they do research and apply it to practice
and the research requires a lot of writing
Oh, that makes sense. Do you at least like learning what most of your papers are about?
Also, what is an industrial organizational psychologist? Do you want to just be a professor?
yeah I love learning about it
it's the writing part that gets to me
I/O psychology deals with the workplace and workplace behavior
they're the ones that create the tests for potential employees
help come up with solutions to workplace issues such as discrimination, inequality, etc.
and I would probably do that and be a professor
Hmm, do you want to do that at the same time? They both seem like pretty time consuming jobs. I know that many professors also do research, but this seems different. How would that work exactly?
there's a professor who teaches, researches, and he works for a private company
I'm not sure exactly what I'd
what I described before was teaching and researching
the research part would be coming up with solutions
I'm also interested in self-employment
and if I was able to do that
I would drop the teaching
Oh, I understand now. I'm always interested in what other people's careers are, and how they work.
And you can always do self employment! I think that it's something that you have to plan for though, because you need to be prepared to devote pretty much all of your time to it (at least at the beginning) to make it succeed.
OOORR I could just take projects as they come up with different companies
I can choose my hours
that is self employment I think
freelance, i think
it's not self employment
haven't written yet the date this year.
somehow you just did!
I'm still not used to writing any date after 2005.
Nope. Don't know why but I haven't had that issue since 2010. The next year's always arrived right about when it felt like it was supposed to.
