Research lab...not worth my time.

So once upon a time I walked into the writing and research lab. I go in and there's nobody at the front desk so I awkwardly look into all the rooms until somebody finally comes to help me. Well, it was the guy who explained everything to us when we were in the library as a class, so that made it kind of weird. Then I told him I was there for the class but I didn't know what I was doing, and he said that unless I have specific questions that he can't really help me. Well, I didn't have any questions because 1) I was only in there because I was required to go and 2) I had no idea what the lab even was and why I was going there. So eventually I left without really getting any help. Honestly, I don't think I would have had much help anyway because Google is amazing and can find just about anything. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but I really do have lots of information already so I don't feel like I need any help researching right now anyway. But for people that do need help, I think the research lab might be helpful, it just wasn't for me. The end.


  1. And the worst part of it is the student who works there are making $8.50 an hour playing solitaire waiting to "TA" students who wander in...

  2. I have to agree, it was really awkward when I first walked in there! Too bad the visit was completely useless for you though!

  3. When I walked in I awkwardly stood there because I wasn't sure I was in the right place...haha. I did learn a few more helpful things but nothing significant.
