Citations

My least favorite part of writing papers is citations. I can do the research and write my thoughts down and connect them in a logical way, but citing things is the worst part. There are so many different formats and rules, it is very confusing. Wouldn't it be easier just to write the article/book title in the text and then put the title and link (if applicable) in the works cited? It would be much more time friendly and would make a lot more sense. I also don't understand why we put all this work into the works cited when most teachers don't even check the sources. Citing sources is just a big headache that most people won't use once they are out of school.
