For those who don’t know my brother or any of his talents, this is a candid take I got of him burning off some artistic steam while I beatbox for our version of Sam Smith’s stay. #candid #brother #samsmith #cover #beatbox #sunday

So I finally finished writing my essay today. It took up 7 pages. I don’t know if that was because I have 2 large citations, or because I went off topic. It’s quote difficult to take out pieces of the puzzle when it all fits so well nicely. I’m still two pages over though, so what do I do? I’d paraphrase my citations, but they are too crucial to the message I’m trying to convey. I feel like they if I paraphrase it, it will take away from the credibility of my message. Decisions, decisions…
Didn’t get a chance to post this on Sunday but I worked on my essay a bit before I had went to work. I continued to write my essay about how intercultural relationships are just like any other relationship out there, but just require more attention and patience. As I was writing this, I quickly discovered that I was already at 5 pages… I hope I don’t go over too much. Citations take a good portion of your essay space, plan accordingly.
I discovered that the more you write over a paragraph, the more and more it sounds strange. I think that sometimes when you look at something for too long, you start to over analyze it, and then something so familiar becomes so foreign. this could prove detrimental to your your writing because your original thought could be skewed so far from what you intended that it domes come out as right. But then again, it can also help with illustrating something better than what you had originally thought. Tip of the day? When in doubt, Write it out. seeing other words helps your brain make connections to ideas that may not have been clear beforehand.
So as I’m sitting trying to brainstorm more ideas for my paper, I find that it is quite distracting to write a paper with 10 tabs open. However, sometimes this helps get more ideas. I actually was able to get more information about intercultural relationships from a first hand interview with my friends, whom have been together for quite a long time. I’m not sure if I will include their quotes in the paper, but I will definitely see if there is more correlation with other couples.
