The Last Paper
Posted on Saturday, April 9th, 2016 by Kelsey Rausch
As an English major, I have written more than my fair share of papers. Every single class that I have taken has usually assigned at least one 10 page paper that was to be completed by the end of the semester. Considering this is my last semester in undergrad, it is also my last semester writing papers. Sunday night marks the the last deadline for my last college paper. For my final paper, I have to analyze a random chapter from a 100 chapter book and write about all of the daoist, confucianist, and buddhist elements within it! It’s kind of a difficult last paper, but just knowing that it was the last paper that I have to write got me through it. Fortunately, at Concordia, the liberal arts education values writing as the foundation of all majors. I even had to write a paper in my mathematics class! I thought that maybe I would catch a break from writing in my math class, but no. Honestly, when I was writing my religion paper, I realized how good I actually was at writing. From the continuous practice over the past four years, I have actually gotten quite good at writing papers! Just in time for my last paper ever!
That is…until grad school.
