The Term is finally coming to an end

Well I am so glad that this term is finally coming to an end because I really need a little bit of a break from school. Currently I am going to school full time, working a full time job, and volunteering at the hospital. It is just to much work for this summer. I have to say this is one of my favorite classes that I have taken at Kaplan so far. I feel that my writing composition skills have greatly improved but I also think they need a little bit more work as well. Writing is just so hard for me it seems to take me forever to just get started. I think the thing that helped me the most in my writing process was laying out my paper before hand and brainstorming so I can get the idea of what I want my paper to be. It is very useful and I recommend it to all. Well good luck to everyone and I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer.

Worried about the last Week!

So I have to say everybody that I am extremely nervous for the last week of school. As I finish our final research paper I am starting to get worried about how the professor will feel about. I feel that I did a really good job on it but I think I could of added a bit more to it. I think the problem might be that I have no confidence when it comes to writing and honestly feel that everybody is a much better writer than I am. So how did the final paper go for everybody else. I have to so though after this class that I truly enjoy writing much more and it will not be as much of a chore but actually and joyful hobby. The hardest thing for me in this class was the fact that we weren't writing opinionated papers. Most of my writing that I have done in the past has been creative writing and that is much different the this class. In lots of opinionated papers you can usually add as much fluff as you want and it still is good. But in this class it would just sound much less professional. Well I hope you all do great on the final push of the term. Good luck to you all!!!!

Coming to an end!?!

Well this week I finally realized that I am seriously going to have to work my butt off and nail this final draft of the paper. I can't believe the summer is almost halfway over and the summer term is coming to an end. Then again all great things must come to an end. So how is the writing process going for everybody else? I think my biggest problems are going to be to perfect my thesis statement so that what, how, and why is clearly stated in my paper. I am also sorting having trouble wrapping up the paper. All good papers need a good end that sums the topic up entirely and its just taking me a while to get there. I gotta say after taking this class that my confidence is building up and I sort of have faith that I am a decent writer now. Well good luck to all and enjoy this beautiful summer!!!
