I have made a very good amount of progress on my annotated bibliography. I am in the process of reading it over and making sure that it is in MLA format. I finished all my summaries and source finding this past week. I am really relieved that I did not save it until the last minute because I did not know it would be that hard to write and find sources for. This paper has differed from all the other ones that I have ever done. I have never written an annotated bibliography before. When I found out we had to write one I got a bit nervous because I did not really know what it entailed. Most of the other English teachers in our high school made their students write annotated bibliographies but none of mine ever did. At first I thought that it would be a big disadvantage for me not really knowing what to do. One I got in the swing of it I figured it out and I felt like I was writing like the same thing over and over in the summaries because all my sources had similar information. I did not know that that is how most annotated bibliographies are. This was a whole new challenge for me and now I know how to write them. It was kind of challenging trying to find sources that were from the time period we were assigned, 2007 to the present. In the library I found so many great sources that were not in that time period and it was frustrating and I would realize it after pulling the book. Another challenge I faced was figuring out the MLA Internet citations. Some of those sources are so annoying trying to figure out authors, etc. I was very worried about formatting this entire paper. This was a mind over matter situation for me toward the end. This process was so tedious and annoying that sometimes I got so frustrated I had to walk away then come back to it later. I have never really been like that with a paper but this one defiantly frustrated me and made me dread having to work on it.

    What progress (if any) have you made on your annotated bib? How has this paper differed from others you've done? What challenges have you faced doing this assignment?
