I have had a very difficult time selecting a topic for my Annotated Bibliography, just as I have with every paper I write. I want it to be about something that is a very important subject to me so I have narrowed my options down to a few. The First topic that I have selected is "Social Media: How it Effects Our Everyday Lives". As my genoration has grown up, social media has become more and more a part of our lives. I can name very few people who dont have a Facebook or a Twitter, and its almost as if people cant function if they can't post a status. The issue has bothered me over the years and I think it would be something very interesting to look into and gain more information about. I also think it might be a great topic for my issue paper that is right after this one. The second topic that I may choose is "The Future of Energy". Right now the world is in a struggle to find the next big source for energy and things like nuclear and coal energy sources are at the top of the list. While fossil fuels are quickly running out, the price of them is only going to sky rocket. I would hope to look into soem alternative means of energy for our future and hopefully could find something that is not as polluting as nuclear or coal energy sources. The third thing that I may write about is "College Life: What Effects Student Success?". Seeing that this is a topic that currently pertains to me and all of my fellow students, I believe that it could be an excellent topic with many things to research. I feel that through my research I could find some things that might currently effect me, so I think it would be very interesting. The resources that I plan to use for my Annotated Bibliography and the different ones within Joyner Library, mostly and hopefully all print sources. I have struggled in the past finding print sources for my topic, so I think that going in as a class this Monday will help me see which of my topics Joyner has the most information on so I can finally choose one of the three. I also hope to use different online articles, websites, the other public library in Greenville, and also maybe even an interview with someone that I know pertaining to a topic. I currently dont have any questions with the trip to Joyner this coming Monday, but I look forward to maybe learning something about it that I didn't already know.
