I read all this stuff about how much people hate him because of the way he acts (on Twitter and such or the way he acted at JIB) and it’s just absurd to me. That’s just Seb. He’s just being Seb.
Also, it’s ridiculous because sometimes I’ll read this Seb hate on blogs of people who are also Lady Gaga fans and they’re the first to be like “LADY GAGA IS JUST BEING HERSELF LA LA FUCKIN’ LA” and really?! Who the fuck is more ridiculous and ~crude here? So Seb’s a bit of an attention whore and an exhibitionist but he’s just fucking Seb.
You know... the concept of self-plagiarism is really stupid.
Nadia mentioned it and ugh… the concept just bugs me. Okay, using an entire paper over again is not a good idea, but using old parts of text of your own to further a point… what’s so wrong about that? Stealing from others is a no no, but I think self-plagiarism is like taking a dollar bill out of your left pocket and putting it in your right pocket. Stealing from yourself… it’s just stupid. I’m sorry. I’m never going to take a paper from one class and use it for another, but I think it’s utterly asinine for someone to tell me I can’t take some of my own words and use them over again. They are mine, after all.
