I am bored to pieces as I type up a paper for a friend on the Lost Colony of Roanoke. I have always hated research papers. Always, but my friend has the misfortune of thinking in Spanish first and English second and while she speaks English fluently, writing and grammar are not her strong suits. Usually, I just edit papers and retype them for her since I have first hand experience with her issues since my mom is originally from Central America, but I needed more money than usual and she just couldn't fathom how to write the paper. I did give her the references so that she could read them, so that she will be up to date with what I am writing, in case her professor asks questions for clarification. 

I do lecture my friend, that there is only so much I can do to help her since I cannot take exams for her. She still needs to KNOW the work herself. I am on page 3 of a 6 page paper and have 3 of the 5 references needed. Rough draft is due later today. Final draft is due tomorrow. I feel like I am back in college. I also have two papers to edit for her. At least that is an extra $135 for our family this month while DH looks for a job.

Page 5 of 6. Hopefully, I can do a smooth transition to a conclusion and not be too repetitive this last page and a half. Oh, sleep! How I miss thee!

All done and emailed to her. Thank goodness for google docs. I even set it so that she can edit it herself if need be. Nighty night peeps. Or, well, good day :)

Because I'm a dumbass and didn't do sock laundry. Yes I wait until the last possible second, until all of us are completely out of socks before doing sock laundry. And I meant to do it this morning but I forgot. So now I'm waiting for the wash cycle to finish so I can put them in the dryer so I can go to bed and hubs can have dry socks in the AM.
