The things they teach at a liberal arts school...  
The topic of my first paper for my Daoist Tradition class is, "What is Daoism?" Basically, it's a summary of the scholars we've read thus far and how THEY define Daoism.

My professor would appreciate it if I handed in a blank sheet of paper, but I doubt it would be the first time or the best grade.

One page out of five done, so it's not all that bad I guess. Just the principle of the matter.

turn the blank in first, just to test him ;)

or compile it like a report...cover page, blank page, then the 5 pager in the appendix

Yeah, I'm planning something to the effect of the latter. She's a cool professor, I think she'll dig it.

Heh, yea, I was going to say blank first page. :)

Or go for something dramatic and large, by putting the definition on a single piece of paper. (Although these things always look cooler in my head.)

is there anything I could help you with?

Thank you for the kind offer, Mr. Daoist, but this paper is just basically a summerization and comparison of the folks we've read in class. I have to state five scholars points, how they define different categories, and how they do or don't agree. It's pretty straight-forward, just tedious. I'm sure you could write something far more interesting.
