First Journal Entry The countdown to graduation has officially begun! A senior means I only have a few more courses to take. Of these courses, the field experience course is the one I have looked forward to since I declared my major because it is the pedagogy of my social work education. Last year, when school ended there was this nervousness and stress that was starting to consume me because of the unknown, this unknown was because I had no idea of where I would be doing my field placement. However, after I received an email from Dr. Russell describing a field placement at Western State Hospital (WSH) I became really excited and felt the stress and nervousness slipping away, but only for a moment.
Throughout the term there has been many writing assignments —big or small— that helped reflect my writing process or the process itself. In the beginning of the course I felt like I was an “ok” writer, but lacked some skills such as: organization, sentence variety, and vocabulary. Also, I did not like to write and had a feeling of dislike when forced to write. I felt like I improved on everything I wanted and was seen throughout the semester. I know how to organize my ideas, the worksheets given in class to work on sentence variety really helped, and vocabulary was built on some level.
In May 2013, I was awarded a Bachelor degree of Science in Management Information Systems from KFUPM. When I look back to my journey to achieve that B.S., I see an amazing adventure, full with extensive learning, experience and personal achievements. Since the beginning of my B.S journey, I faced major obstacles that strengthened my personality, gave me confidence, and a great deal of experience. I had to work in several low salary jobs while struggling to maintain my collage studies. In some days, I worked for 18 hours a day, and that was the case until September 2006, where I was hired in a decent full-time job at KFUPM.
Using imagery to bring a new life to my writing. I began to actually understand what metaphors were and incorporated them in my essays. By listening to Mrs. Jackson during class I began to learn more about grammar. The few lessons which we had improved my writing a lot, just going over how a verb should interact with a noun in a sentence helped. Most of all though, the thing that helped me the most was practice.

It was a challenge for me because I had final exams and I didn 't have any time to read the book. Once I had the chance to read the book ,I saw that there were a lot of chapters that I have to read. On my first semester I was successful with my second presentation which was about the three

Computer Programs I am familiar with the Microsoft office suite, and I hope to expand my knowledge of computer programs. I am willing and eager to learn how to use new programs. As a fast learner, I would welcome the challenge to add to my computer
The beginning of this semester, I decided one goal for my English class, and I tried to accomplish it. My problem was grammar of writing essays. So, I was trying to improve it as much as possible, even by studying outside of class time. In particular, I think that I have improved in three different areas from the class: writing process, using quotes, and MLA citation. The writing process is a very big problem for me, but Dr. Wenzell has the step-by-step teaching style of these which I took heed to.
I had my first official coding class last year, and I learned more than i thought i ever would. I was fortunate enough to have some friends as classmates, and be able to talk to them about the projects we had to complete. Being a freshman who has had no prior experience to coding, in a class full of people who have at least an idea of what methods, parameters, and booleans were made me feel inadequate. I tried my best to pretend like I was doing fine in the class, and that it was really easy, I was just taking my time to work on other things. But in reality, I struggled a lot.
On the first two days of taking notes I struggled a lot on taking good notes. I think I still need a lot of information besides the information I took on Naviance. So I asked my brother about what websites should I use since he already did this before. He recommended websites such as ProQuest and Google scholar. In addition to those, career websites such as Career Zone, Naviance, and Explore Careers help me a lot on doing this paper.
Each one of us will discuss three to four sources. Furthermore, the most difficult part for me on this project is not how to communicate with my teammate and how to prepare my writing, but how to manage my time. I have three classes on this summer session and I have two midterms needed to review. I am struggling with planning every minute of my day around studying for the midterms. I am afraid of if I have enough time to prepare my own part at work days.
The connection between my CID and English 101 & 102 is that all these classes help me to design, draft, and edit a variety of business message types. Use a reader-friendly approach to balance the needs of the audience with the desires and objectives of the writer and develop and give an oral business presentation using effective visual aids. As I mentioned earlier the two main things I learned in English 102 are rhetorical analysis and the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarism. These are the most important things I learned in this class and will always consider before writing an article or
The first table I stopped by was the McGladery booth. To be completely honest, going into the conversation I had no idea what it actually was the McGladery actually did. In elementry school I had a friend whose father worked for the company, and since then I had always been curious. But after briefly introducing myself to the recruiter, I informed him that I was a first year smeal student who was looking for general information on different companies. The recruiter, who I believe was named Kyle, was incredibly nice and informative.
In fact, I went in virtually every lunch time into the “IT Lab” to edit my letter. Each day, I would make slight changes, and this all eventually culminated together to form the product that I was happy with. At this point, I was half way through the year, feeling more confident about my writing. Entering term 3, I continued to show the development of my writing as I produced a “description” of an invention I needed to design. Whilst creating the prose, I practised my adjectives, adverbs, etc.
