I just finished watching the new HBO series Girls written and directed by Lena Dunham. It follows a group of recently graduated university students, with arts degrees, as they fail to figure out how to live. I just had a search of reddit and found that many people think the show is just a shallow comedy, but being in a somewhat similar demographic as the characters from the show, I thought it insightful. Worth a look.

The standard way to do double spacing which everyone recommends as clean and neat is to use the setspace package since it doesn't double-space your footnotes which is generally desired.

Turns out that (a) this isn't the typographical standard of double-spacing (b) it's not the same as Microsoft Word which everyone else's extended essays/dissertations/theses will be written in.

\usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}
\setstretch{2}


and if you change the spacing be sure to do it again:

\singlespacing
[...]
\doublespacing\setstretch{2}
