Trusting Skeeter was especially difficult since she was telling Skeeter stories she had never told anyone before, such as why she writes every day.

The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life.
