I use Wikipedia quite frequently. Whenever I'm studying something and I don't understand it, oftentimes I'll search it on Wikipedia to see if it will help shed some light on my confusion. I also use it a lot when I am writing papers to search for good sources. I did not have a Wikipedia account, nor did I think I would ever have one. I'm too scared to edit stuff on Wikipedia. Maybe after I get my Ph.D. I'll have a little more confidence and try to edit articles that talk about stuff I'm familiar with, but until then I don't think I'll be doing much editing. I don't know which features I'll use, maybe when I get into grad school I'll start following certain posts? I have changed the layout though. I chose the timeless layout because I thought it looked really good.

It was a nice story with a lot of details. Story source: English Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs with illustrations by John D. Batten (1890).

As they grew older, one of the girls, Evelyn, became the spitting image of her mom, and the other, Flor, became the spitting image of her father. Unfortunately for Evelyn, this meant that she developed the same ugly character that her mother possessed. Flor grew to be a very beautiful and charming child just like her father. Because of this both her mother and Evelyn grew to be very envious of Flor and treated her poorly. Her mother instructed her to do all the household chores while Evelyn got to go hang out with her friends. One day while Flor was mowing the lawn her mother told her to take out the trash immediately. She grabbed the trash bags and took them down the street to the local garbage bin where she met an old lady asking for chang
