Whoops. Turns out the civil liberties class I signed up for is intended to weed out students who think they eventually want to go to law school. I do *not* want to go law school.
Biggest argument on why proofreading and copyediting is important in today's age according to my journalism professor: "If you don't, you'll become a meme. You don't want to become a meme."
