The writing 102 course helped me understand many things about the way I think and they way I handle things, it improved my Self knowledge .When I left the writing 101 course and entered the writing 102 course I thought that this course would be very easy since it is similar to 101.

Career Objective: My career objective is that I aspire to pursue a career that is exciting and dynamic where I can be a part of giving people positive experiences and memories. Due to my work placement, my career objective has changed in the sense that I’m less sure of exactly what industry/sector I would like to do this in. Things I’ve Learnt About Myself: 1. Through undertaking this work placement I learnt that I am very adaptive, a quick learner and I pick things up relatively easily. I think the fact that I take a lot of notes definitely helps me remember processes and procedures because I am a reading/writing learner as well as a hands-on learner, I have also found that I learn well through repetition, particularly when it comes to complex
The skills that I have learned has dramatically improved those letters, allowing them to appear more professional. In the past, I would search for ways to write a decent paper; now I have the skills to perform my own paper without having to rely on having assistance from someone else. It takes me a little while to develop a starting point, but once I have the first sentence, my words come to mind much quicker. I have also caught myself listening to the words that people speak instead of listening to what they are speaking of. I have improved on my speaking with the public because of this class.
I then found additional quotes from credible sources that could further support my argument and used them to make an annotated bibliography. Next, I collaborated with two of my peers in order to peer edit each other's essays and then made these changes to my essay. Finally, I added in the additional quotes from my annotated bibliography sources. I have gotten better at this kind of work because I have learned how to expand my vocabulary and use formal language with less dead verbs. I have improved greatly upon this, but I have room to improve even more.

For this week I have been using Zotero to organize and look up useful academic journals to use for my three new citations. Combined with Zotero, I have also been using Ebsco to help find some interesting topics related to the setting that I wanted to focus my points on. Zotero’s feature of allowing me to save the PDF and bookmarking useful articles was really convenient and saved me a lot of time. Zotero’s feature of creating bibliographies also saved me quite some time, as it allowed me to go straight to the annotations for my readings. Everything went smoothly and efficiently with the combination of Ebsco and Zotero together.
There are several quotes included in this notebook that focus on resilience. For me, I myself find that quotes also help me when I feel like I want to give up. They’re inspirational and make people feel a lot better and sometimes they even make then want to pursue what they want or need and to keep going. It could make them realise that the the situation they are in right now is not the final destination and that they can change where they are. These quotes are motivational.

The readings throughout those two classes have helped me to understand the dos and
I am proud of this assignment because it took a lot of time and I actually grew to love the assignment. It took time, to find the right format, research my questions on what the font or order of the content would be. It was interesting and fun to write a different type of writing style. I improved on Information Skills by that I learned what kind of sources professors/teachers love and what sources they dislike. I also learned that there is no harm in asking the teacher what kind of sources they suggest.
I have visited my local courts in my town a few times, 'Horsham County and Family Courts ' and I have watched several cases. This has really helped me work out what I want to do with my future and which career path I want to go down after University. My A Levels have taught me more than just the subject 's syllabus, they have also taught me life skills along the way. English has taught me to be punctual, precise and taught me how to work well with a group of people, this is because of the various coursework deadlines and group analysis tasks. Psychology and Law have made it easier for me to work independently as I 've had to do a lot of research in my own time out of class.
Western Washington has a diverse and well trained group of writing centers. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Central Washington University, Highline Community College, Shoreline Community College, Tacoma Community College and University of Washington Bothell . The goal was to find out what the writing centers are using for training, and how the centers operated. The four centers I visited, and the one center I interviewed, were extremely welcoming and have a diverse variety of extensive training programs. Observations of these writing centers enlightened me with an overwhelming amount of information.
With the help of Perdue, it made easier to distingue APA, MLA and Chicago citations. Learning these citations helped me to meet the standard in WRGT 101.

I appreciate the efforts made by the tutor of Arlington Public Library and helped me to develop essential writing skills.
