    paraphraseing

    could you please paraphrase this for me:

    Well, this semester is killing me. I have so many projects due, two tests on Friday, and I work 20 hours a week. There is not time to do anything I want to do and I am feeling more stressed than ever!

    Re: paraphraseing

    Welcome to the forum.

    1. Why do you want to paraphrase it?
    2. Why do you think we should do it for you?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please read this forum rule, ayoung:

    Homework

    1. Please don't ask us to do or correct your homework; this is a place to discuss language. We do not do homework or assignments for people. If we suspect that a question is an assignment, we will not answer it and may edit or delete it.

    Re: paraphraseing

    I am NOT asking you to do my homework for me! I was simply asking for reassurance of what I was trying to do. Thank you for you concern.

    Perhaps:

    I only have time to work and study. I am all worn out, and I have not time for fun.

    Thank you senior member for your suggestion. I will compare it to what I have written.

    Re: paraphraseing

    You have been extremely lucky that Tarheel has chosen to help you with homework.

    It was made clear to you in post #4 that we do not do people's homework. You asked us to paraphrase it in post #1. In post #3 you said it was part of your homework assignment. I don't see how, in post #5 you can say "I am not asking you to do my homework for me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: paraphraseing

    Additionally, if you had shown us what you had written, we could have compared it to the original and maybe offered suggestions for improvement.

    Re: paraphraseing

    Well, he/she said:

    "I am NOT asking you to do my homework for me!"

    I guess I forgot the other part.
