So, yeah, I'm supposed to be writing this paper for my terrorism class about Jihad - more specifically Jihad in Egypt (because that's the international terrorist group I picked) that's due at 8:30 in the morning and is supposed to be 6-8 pages.

I've written my name. *headdesk*

On the bright side, I've got my sources, it's just a matter of sifting through it all and picking out what's relevant and what's going to look like filler. Like this thing on the history? It goes back to the year 622. o_O Whaaaaaaaaaaaat? Uh, no, I don't need that much history. But thanks.

I think I'll look and see if the books are going to point me in the direction of relevant history.

Oh and I have to do all the citations in APA. *flails* I don't know APA! I've never had to do it! All my professors always want MLA! *may freak out*

......and I may have mostly made this post because I wanted to use this Buffy/Sam icon. Because Lani will tell me that Sam belongs to Faith only and probably use a Sam/Faith icon to reply and it'll be funny. :D

Also, I'm watching The Fog with Tom Welling and laughing. Because it calls for it. (Hey, I before I was watching Because I Said So in Spanish despite the fact that I pretty much couldn't understand it. *shrugs* No different than when my roommate decided watching the fourth HP in Spanish and I sat there with her....huh, we did that for one of the Star Wars movies too come to think of it.)

First, BREATHE. APA isn't actually all that much more difficult. (Though I'm surprised they want you to to do it for a history paper. It's usually for psychology and science, but if they want you to document and format a research paper, I could see them wanting you to do this.)

Secondly, start here, here, and here. These are the things that got me through APA. If you need anymore help, though, I've found my English textbook from last semester, and would be more than happy to email you anything you could possibly want to know about it. ^_^

Third, Buffy/Sam is my sooper sekrit pairing. You get much love from me. ^_^

It did surprise me since usually in my Criminal Justice classes, they don't really ever assign a format (or maybe I'm just used to my law classes, lol).

Hee! I actually did end up using the Owl at Purdue. It helped tons. I'd sing something in your honor or something but I can't sing. *grins*

Buffy/Sam is a pairing I just love. There needs to be more stories out there of them. I've exhausted the Buffy/Sam section at TtH already, lol. And no, I'm not considering writing a Buffy/Sam.

....well, okay. I may be considering a one-shot or two. But nothing multi-chaptered. My muse couldn't handle it! LOL. So much love back to you. :D Yay for people secretly liking Buffy/Sam! Hee!
