If someone take advantage of a writing I published, and plagiarized it as theirs I would press charges to the fullest exist of the law. I know for a fact that if you use someone’s writing there needs to be name and date of that passage for approval. The author doesn’t know about the doing, but at least you know that you are covering yourself from plagiarism. The Center for Writing Excellence has a plagiarism checker where you can submit your paper to help with you better site your assignment.

I have to juggle school, work, and family responsibilities on a timely mattered schedule, because if I don’t I will lose all the coordination that I worked some hard to organize. I really have no time to waste or then watch TV sometimes, so time is real factor in my life. I really find myself wasting a lot of time stopping my homework to play with my baby, which I know its mandatory for me to do so. This really will decrease a large amount of stress on a individual by actually planning ahead.
