It's a good question. I asked the mods why, they couldn't answer. They also extended it from one to three weeks because............they can I guess.
Sorry to hear life is so boring. My journalism shiz is going ok, still not making any money from it though . That said, I have started writing for a blog and I get by far the most hits, so if someone notices that then........meh. For the meantime, I'll stick to tutoring. God, not much is happening to us at the moment is it?
