Challenges vs Smooth sailing

The hardest part of my personal narrative has been starting itÖ as well as organizing it. I have the majority of my thoughts collected for this narrative and I have them written down, however, organization has been a large issue for me. Putting it in the right format so that it flows smoothly is key when writing the paper. I have had issues connecting all of the elements of the story plus explaining how each affects me and keeping it formal at the same time. My words always run into a less formal pattern which is not suitable for a formal narrative. Speaking to your audience as if you don't know them is how it needs to be set.
The easiest part of this paper has been the fact that the personal event is still so clear in my mind so there is no difficulty relaying the event. Another aspect is how it has affected me in my life and I understand very well how it has. It has changed many things about my personality as well as about the way I view people and how I choose to treat them. I also volunteer my time more and put in more effort for other organization to better benefit people's lives.
The most difficult thing about my paper is find the time to do it in. I have a ton of other things going on in my classes as well as meeting for my clubs such a pirate planners which likes to be very active. College is proving to be a schedule changing stage in life. I'm learning how to reorganize my time so that everything fits as well as having time to study and still make friends and have a life on campus. My past couple weekends have been spent studying for tests and not doing as well on the tests as I had hoped. Many late nights have been spent avoiding low grades by losing sleep and solving roommate issues. So very little time has been set aside for my paper, however, this weekend is dedicated to it although i have a feeling that a single weekend is not the best time allotment for writing a whole narrative paperÖ. I will do my best though as see where it lands me.
