Don't Panic.




It just seems like I needed that. 11,521 and today is the halfway day, meaning I should have 25,000-ish. So I'm out $6 + a tank of gas (what I said I'd buy mom if I didn't get to 15k last night) but I'm surprisingly ok with that. Probably because SOMEONE is giving me $100 to do his homework....? Idk...I asked mom about the morality of the whole thing and she said that I was just doing a job (one that I love, might I add, because it's writing) and it was all on him whether or not he was actually going to turn it in. So, yeah....still really inky-feeling, but she does have a point. I need money, he has money, he's willing to pay me for my talents. The whole thing sucks, but I'm not the one paying people to do my papers for me. I'm the one who needs money. Especially since I'm about to make a Meta order with Sarah. Especially since I want to go to Ren Fest this year. Especially since (though I am still living at home) I pay for my own rent, insurance, gas, and most of my groceries (when he doesn't). Especially since I need that money so I can go to Matsuri next semester.

You see, it goes on and on. Really, all it comes down to is that I'm providing a service that he is paying for (similar to selling a gun I guess...?). It's not on me what he does with that service (hunting, shooting at a range, protection, murder). I have no control over that. I don't like it. But I need money. It's done.


Don't Panic.




I just need to remember that.

Found Keene essay. Still wondering as to whether it constitutes plagiarism if it's your own work. Big moral dilemma. I really want to write a new version, but I just don't have time. I'm not well enough to pull an all-nighter. *le sigh*

Thoughts?
