This is like pulling teeth

I have three pages of text on my BDE, and every word is like pulling teeth. It is so fucking slow going. Switching constantly between Swedish and English isn't helping any either[1], and I'm out of practice with writing essays.


[1] My current sources are in English, I'm writing in Swedish. There are reasons for this, involving the fact that the second half/two thirds of the essay will be using primarily Swedish sources.

BDE progress 2

It's been damnably slow going today, and I haven't accomplished a quarter of what I had hoped to. On the bright side, I have finished all the reading I wanted to do, and I only have to look up one more thing before I have all I need to write the sections I wanted to finish this week. I'll try to get on that tomorrow. Then Sunday I'll have to prepare for class on Monday, but that's what happens towards the end of the semester - week-ends get discontinued in favour of more study time.

BDE progress

I had not previously realized just how annoying it is when people make all their important points with quotes. In fact, I quite like using quotes myself. But darnit, when you want to refer to that point, you have to go dig up the original reference - rendering articles where all important points are made with quotes, extremely frustrating. Barbara A Babb, I'm looking at you.
