Annotated bibliographies are one of the dumbest things ever

Posted March 12th, 2013 at 07:45 AM by hinkage

First off, let me just say that I enjoy writing. I do, honestly, really, which is why I'm technically doing it write now (haha, worst pun in the world). But even though I like writing, I very much hate writing papers, at least expository ones. They're just so BORING.

Seriously, somehow I always end up getting the worst possible topic to write a paper about (usually because I'm lazy and don't pick/research one so I get one last minute) but STILL. Or, I get a topic I really enjoy, but still have to provide "valid" sources (anything not .edu automatically not counting is ********). I hate having to look up info and articles about a topic I'm not interested in, or one that I already know too much about. I don't need this article to prove myself when I already know the facts are true. God dammit teacher, why don't you just believe me?

This brings me to the main subject of this blog: annotated bibliographies are terrible. They're supposed to help you understand your topic and get you organized for your paper but instead they do neither of these things. I can understand the article without having to write about how I understand it, or why it's a reliable source.
"I think this website is reliable because it has an .edu." should be enough. I dunno, it was probably written for some conference or as a thesis. I trust it. It's .edu. What more explanation do you need?

Okay, I am a little biased because I just hate that ****. But if you're going to hate anything, annotated biographies are one of the safest things, because no one likes them enough to seriously defend them. That and pedophilia. **** those people.




That was today's rant.
