I am building my first home. Lucky me because it is in the woods! It is an adventure I surely will not forget.

$4,000 Paper

Looking over floor plans, interiors, and exteriors of log homes is a full time job, or it could be if I wasn't in grad school, working, and trying to do laundry. I love doing it (the house research, not the laundry) and use it as a filler to break up the monotony of working on my paper.
You, know, The Paper. The one I get six credits for. The one I am now referring to as the $4,000. paper.
It may become a year long project or even longer. I started it in August as an Independent Study and am working on it now as my final project.
Wow! Now that I think about it, it is a $6,000 paper! I am getting 9 credits for it, inadvertently, because I already got 3 on the beginning research phase, as indie study, and now 6 more. Wow!
If you want to see $6,000 paper just ask me to send it to you.
It is becoming my Opus, my academic Opus.

I am glad it is calling your name. I hope you like the revision. It does make it beter, thank you. It is a huge paper isn't it? Wow. I gave daughter a copy last night and she couldn't believe it. Some of my classmates are excited about it and have asked to read it and my one tutor is always so excietd when I come in to work on it. She loves memoirs.
