The most challenging part that I found in doing the annotated bibliography was how time consuming each source was. In the beginning of doing it I was reading each and every source page for page until I got a grasp on what it was talking about. That was really stupid of me to do because it took me 30 minutes to read about 10 or less pages of work. It did not seem that bad in the beginning but as I started to get to do my 4th source it was too much work. I then started to just read the abstracts and take as much info from there and only read the article if I had to. Even doing that it was still time consuming and giant pain in the ass. It did cut down my reading time from like 30 minutes to 10 minutes per source. I found several parts of the annotated bibliography easy. One of them was how easy it was to find sources. The databases the school provides gave me all 15 of my sources in one search. I only once had to look on a normal website to find a source but that was just to change things up. Another part of my bibliography that was easy to do was typing the actual bibliography. I thought it would be a whole lot harder than I thought it was. But going off the example you gave in class and on the website, typing them was easy as hell. Well not easy as hell, but easier than all the other papers I had to write for you. Now that I have submitted the annotated bibliography I feel like I should get a good grade on it. At the minimum a C-, just because some of my bibliographies were bullshitted because I did not understand the abstract or the article clearly enough. Then again I was sleep deprived when I was reading them and I slowly started to rush to finish them as I got closer to 15 sources so my quality probably dropped off a bit. But overall I think I did good on it.

    What did you find most challenging about the annotated bibliography? What did you find easiest about doing the annotated bib? Now that you have submitted it, how do you feel about your Ann. Bib?
