I am always getting inspired to talk and have discussions on topics about current events going on. When I start writing, I find myself having trouble putting my words

Another reason why I don’t like English class is because I don’t like reading. The fact of sitting down and actually reading a book was not cutting it for me. I thought I had better things to do like playing sports or hanging out with friends. English has probably been the most struggle because it’s not that I can’t read it’s
