After continuous confusion about what to write about, the final topic I decided on for the Annotated Bibliography is diabetes among children in the United States. I chose this topic because since I am a nursing major, I will be helping patients with the treatment of their diabetes, and I felt it is important for me to know more about it. I also thought that diabetes would be interesting to learn more about because it is something that is becoming more known and widespread throughout the world. I have found that a ton of my sources have been from journal articles, and then newspaper articles following closely behind. Most of them are based off of studies that were performed, and explanations of what was learned from them. A lot of my articles also included correlations between unhealthy diets, exercise and the onset of diabetes. So far, I have found most of my articles off of the library’s website, and I will probably continue to find the last five sources I need from that website as well. I thought that Joyner’s website was very helpful because all the results contained the necessary information I needed, instead of using ‘Google’, which does not always have reliable outcomes. I liked how you can choose key words to search so almost all the results can be used in my paper. It was very convenient to use because it provided the MLA format for the website, and well as basic information about the article before reading it. With the MLA part done, I could just copy and paste it, and begin my annotation, instead of worrying about whether I did it correctly. My main concern about completing this paper would be the variety of my articles. I began to feel as though I was repeating myself within each annotation, as well as throughout the whole paper. Another concern is whether I will successfully change the format of my cited sources correctly, such as italicizing, capitalization, and making sure the structure is correct. Overall, I feel like this assignment is difficult, but also pretty easy because you do not have to continue on the same idea, and worry about the transitions of each paragraph. All you have to worry about is writing that one annotation, and once you complete the summary, you can move onto a completely different idea, which I enjoyed being able to do.
