The upcoming issue paper (it is up and coming since I haven't started yet and the only thought I have had about it so far since I have been working on other homework, was a strange dream; but I am not going to go into that, ever). I feel that the paper will be difficult because it is hard to talk about something one is impassioned about and not be biased. Or at least discuss both sides of an argument-like discussion within the boundaries of 'no personal opinions allowed'. That is rather difficult to completely encompass and pass off as accomplished. Flowery words can be great fillers, but I feel some are absolutely necessary at times...The challenges ahead will most definitely include procrastination (let us be honest here)and late nights. They will also include researching more about each side of the argument, which could take a good bit of time and will of course, involve a great deal of frustration and irritation. I am most concerned about taking the time to write out and plan for this paper, even though I already have a good deal, a good portion of the research. I have found information on both ideas, both sides of the abortion spectrum, and both seem well-grounded. I was actually thoroughly surprised by an article I found about nurses employed in abortion clinics. The article states that some nurses have to swallow and subdue their personal opinions on the matter. This is a confrontational matter and one that will be discussed in the issue paper, but I digress... No, not yet. I read another article that dealt with abortion clinic counselors and what they have to do and not do and it can be confusing to work in an environment where emotions run high and some emotions are not allowed to be catered to because it may sway a girl's choice in the matter of abortion. Now I digress... I do not have any other questions at this point in time. Although it is a possibility that I may have one or two tomorrow. *laughs to himself* As for the sarcasm at the end of this post: I have nothing more to say about this.

      In the issue paper, I met a few challenges. It was often hard to separate opinion from fact, and keep my own opinion out of the paper. For every topic, the challenge was different. On some it was... more
