Staring at a blank screen will never solve anything. It would just be easier to be buried under a hole and die, but then again that’s not what it means to be persistent. Nope, to best explain the word persistent is to show it by finishing this struggle of an essay and proving that even if it’s a pain then it can be done. If that’s finished then surely the point will be made clear. Being persistent is the key to properly completing this essay.

Two individuals get into a disagreement over which flavor from Fruit Loops tastes the best. Either way both of the ding dongs are wrong, because all the Fruit Loops have the same flavor, but for them it’s about the argument that’s presented which proves who is correct.

Questions came and went such as “What word is really accurate?”, “How can an essay be made out of this word?”, “Will it really fit 3-5 pages?”, “What is there to say to best explain it?” Trails of questions such as those continued for days on end. To end it there had to be a reason for one word to stick out more than another. The reason behind the word persistent was for the question that the prompt was. There’s no end to discovering who someone is, what one word best defines an individual, it’s always a discovery so for one person to truly figure out that singular word to describe them it’s through being persistent and not quitting the process of rediscovery.
