Dream Job

I might consider taking up that line of work... Writing papers for others about subjects you have no idea about sounds interesting, demanding, and fun.
Well, probably not so much fun...

As the deadline for the business-ethics paper approaches, I think about what's ahead of me. Whenever I take on an assignment this large, I get a certain physical sensation. My body says: Are you sure you want to do this again? You know how much it hurt the last time. You know this student will be with you for a long time. You know you will become her emergency contact, her guidance counselor and life raft. You know that for the 48 hours that you dedicate to writing this paper, you will cease all human functions but typing, you will Google until the term has lost all meaning, and you will drink enough coffee to fuel a revolution in a small Central American country.

But still,I'm intrigued.

So... does anyone need something written?
