Originality is obsolete

Today I must write a ten page first draft of my senior art thesis paper. You may be asking yourself why I choose to wait until the last minute to do things like this, and I have realized I'm not entirely sure I know any other way. It's not that I haven't been researching, I am surrounded by a pile of library books and articles which have mostly been sifted through for relevant information to support my thesis.

Additionally I am sick, which contrary to the usual experience, I am quite enjoying. It just seems like life, to be sick and sniffling in the autumn, bundling up to keep warm and drinking tea.
