Inequality: Among the !Kung, the El Eshadda, and the Americans
Written December 10, 2001
This is my final paper for the Anthropology 101 course that I took during my first year at college. I liked the class quite well, but I did not want to write the paper, so I put it off until the night before it was due. I started writing it around 8:00 in the evening and finished at 4:30 the following morning. I then went to bed for a while, woke up, proofread the paper and made a few minor corrections, and then turned it in thinking it was wonderful. I got an A on the paper so I assumed it was pretty good, but when I happened to stumble across it in my AFS space a couple months later, I read it again and noticed a whole host of embarrassing (albeit mostly minor) mistakes that I had failed to catch during my proofreading; due most likely to my sleepless state at the time.
