The most difficult thing about this assignment was trying to find the right the book and the right information I wanted to use. There is so much history on rugby it made it a little difficult to find the information I felt was most important. Other than finding the information, the hardest part about writing it was getting started. It took me a while to figure out the right things to say to start it off, and I probably still could have done a better job. Also the conclusion was a little tough. The easiest part of the assignment was the fact that we could choose anything we wanted. I instantly thought of rugby. I never really knew about rugby till I came to ECU and start playing. I got really interested in the sport. While learning how to play and hearing all the crazy names of drills and plays. It was very unique. Another part that was very easy was once I got started and I finished my introduction the rest of the paper went quickly. I knew the information I wanted to include. I wrote an outline of the information and the order I wanted it to go in. I had a lot more information that I thought I did. One other thing that was a little difficult is there were a lot of things that I wanted to include but it was hard to paraphrase a lot of it and I didnít want too many in text citations so I left some things out that I would have liked to include. Now that my paper is submitted I feel like the strengths in my paper were how much history I found and the origins of rugby. I wanted to get information of Ellis and that was easier than I thought. All the information I had and being so interested in the topic just really helped my paper flow. The weaknesses of my paper were definitely my introduction and my conclusion I think. I believe I should have probably spent more time on trying to improve them. Another weakness is I realized after I turned it in, I had messed up on my works cited page. I had forgotten to italicize the title and websites. Other than that I feel like I did better than I thought I was going to.
