Although I embrace change, I am pretty set in my old ways already and that can be difficult to change. If for some reason I absolutely needed to adjust my writing environment, I could probably switch to typing without much of a delay. If I needed to write outside in a busy crowded area I would need to make myself comfortable and then play some music on my phone to block out the
Reading and writing have been a struggle for me since a young age. Even though I still consider it to be one of my weaknesses, I am very pleased with how far I have come. I hope that in the future, I am able to continue my desire for reading and writing to ensure that I am able to better communicate with others that I come in contact with my daily
One assignment that I found intriguing was when I had to write things that I carried to school and each sentence had to be a literary device. This was one task I enjoyed because it was time consuming, challenging, and also using my previous writing knowledge to create an entertaining writing piece. In the end, I was more confident with my writing because whenever I had an essay due, I would receive feedback about my improvements in my writing. Senior year was more writing than reading. During college application season, I had to write many essays and make my own résumé.
When I have an idea on my mind, I always struggled to write it out as a legit sentence. Although I know that I should change my wording when I am writing down my thoughts, I cannot think of a formal expression in a short time. This is the most time consuming process when I am writing. I find an interesting fact about my writing that I can write faster when I am writing my journals on real paper. It is not because the contents of the journals are easier since I can write both reading responses and unscripted entries faster than typing into my laptop.
Every student coming into the upcoming school expects to learn things from an academic standpoint, and quite often personal growth is overlooked. When students are taught how to properly read and analyze literature, the students mainly focus on their improved abilities and miss lessons that can be learned from the stories themselves. When papers are due and are being written the night before, sometimes thoughts such as “this is stupid,” or “why does this matter,” arise instead of thinking about not procrastinating and understanding that paper was put off. As a senior on the verge of graduating, I can say I have finally realized the best parts of academics, the life lessons learned and the social aspect. Yes the content learned is very important,
Then, when I get home, those thoughts transform into words. My writing doesn 't pry on my own intimate feelings, but rather on fictional adventures. I love writing stories, wild, crazy stories that I dream to be formed into a physical book and sold on shelves. There is not one subject matter that I focus on, but rather, I write about whatever calls to me.
Writing essays and other types of posts has always been difficult for me. But, throughout this composition class, I have learned many interesting and new things about the different types of writing styles. When starting this class, I considered myself to be an average writer with run-of-the-mill vocabulary, ordinary sentence structure and typical finished products. This class has helped me greatly improve my writing skills in a variety of ways. I have learned multiple things by taking this class, such as new ways to approach writing and that there is much that I still need to learn about composition.
When I was about four years old my mother taught me how to write my name, my address, the numbers one through twenty, and the alphabet. Although I consider myself a better reader than a writer because I have writing issues, but I still enjoy writing whenever I can. I also include a journal, and I write in it mostly everyday on what I experience that day. First, writing has impacted my life so much, and some of the affects that got from learning how to write at a young age is that I was able to start writing bigger papers in college. I still have struggles with the grammar, but with a little courage I am sure I can become an even better writer.
These past few months have been interesting. I procrastinated (more than I should have), written a few papers, but I have also learned a lot about writing. Walking into this I had some writing experience but not nearly as much as I should of had. I knew how to summarize, cite, and work in groups but this class gave me the opportunity to fine tune those skills and learn new skills. College should not be taken lightly and The first new skill I learned was how to write a college level paper.
Looking back at the beginning of this semester I was unsure of why I was in this class to begin with. I had thought that my writing was good enough to pass any class that Lake Land had to offer, but I was completely wrong. The things I have learned this semester of what not to put in my papers is a lot more than I think I have ever learned in a class before. I have learned to proofread my papers better, proper punctuation, and just to relax and not overthink my topic. Proofreading my papers has always been a weak spot for my writing.

I too, find myself loving the act of texting far too much. I have had some similar experiences when it comes to others giving my personal information through text, when I would have much rather heard it in person. Some of the experiences like that I feel we are losing, because they have been replaces with texting. That is why I feel our connection with one another is being tampered with in a negative way. This is the new norm though, and it would be hard to change.
They have taught me that structuring your paper is the key element to good writing. Somehow, I have learned a great deal last semester, which was difficult but I will be able to put towards me up and coming writing intensive courses. The readings throughout those two classes have helped me to understand the dos and
Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. 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. During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking.
