Dear APA, Thank you for squeezing every bit of joy out of writing. Appreciate that. The only comfort is it's so complicated most professors don't care(or maybe don't even know) if it's correct, as long as they can find it to double check your work.

Thanks for the video, haven't had to write a paper in about a year due to being a Computer Engineering Major, and found this video very helpful!

Thanks for explaining APA.

Hardest time I had/have with APA is getting the formatting straight for all the sections (indents, centered, italicized v. underlined v. bold...) MLA was the first I learned and it always confused me and seemed excessive. Chicago Style isn't as excessive, but at least equally confusing. Having to jump b/w all 3 in college doesn't help much. Neither do the "flexible" rules they all seem to have to some degree. I've picked my poison. Good thing I'm already a psych major I guess. lol....

@AsifShadat --> Yes, when called for by the guidelines. However the link should be text only. Not a hyperlink.

@MyStacey84 --thanks for your comment. I ask out of ignorance: what is "two-finger spacing?"

@ItaloBen -- What's all the anger about? Not that I'm saying your profs are or aren't idiots. Some are, some aren't. Nothing new there. Remember that we can't always control what happens to us but we can always control our reaction to it. Don't let your anger get in the way of the importance stuff--learning, for example.
ItaloBen (8 years ago)
Thank you for clearing up the APA guidelines. I hate my goddamn idiot college professors who make up use this, but I'll give them what they want, and get the fuck out of school soon enough. Thanks again,

@peakdavid David, I tend to speak too fast. I envy people who can slow down and speak clearly.-- Hey, thanks for the kind words, malicea. Looks like you had a scary Halloween.
David Taylor (8 years ago)
Important topics as humanity gradually realize we are all connected, all co-dependent on each other.

Thanks, it went very well! It was about the Chilean earthquake and social response to it in light of the Haiti quake and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Thanks again.
David Taylor (8 years ago)
Good luck on your paper!

While I agree you could have talked a tad bit quicker, it is nothing to worry about because it's nitpicking. Those who need slow speech will be thankful, and those who do not need probably wont be annoyed by it, as I wasn't. Thanks for posting these videos, they really helped me a lot. Now I am off to write my paper using proper APA format .Cheers bud!
David Taylor (8 years ago)
Hey, slow--thanks for the good words. I debated over doing this over cus I thought I was talking too slow. Maybe it's your handle, but glad it worked for you.
David Taylor (8 years ago)
