Well, as you mentioned in class, I choose a topic that was too general so I ran into troubles determining what was the most important factors to include within the paper. After doing research I discovered that I could have written an entire informative paper solely off the history of athletic training. Picking out the only the necessary information to provide a solid background was difficult because I was worried I would unknowingly leave out something important. Therefore, I am worried that one of the weaknesses in my paper will be that the information provided is not going to be specific. Even though I wrote much more about the history that I intended to I feel like there is still a lot that I did not get to include. Not to mention, the extension of the history section of my paper left less room for other information that I had wished to include. For example, nowhere in my paper was I able to address how much athletic trainers make today, and how the career is rising in this job market. This kind of upsets me because that is one thing that I wished to learn before I wrote this paper. Luckily, I did not run into any trouble finding reliable and informative sources, which will be one of my papers strengths. I fear though that finding such informative sources is why I fear my paper is so broad. All of the sources I found were full of facts and outlooks that I wished to include but I couldnít fit into my paper. Therefore I feel my paper will seem empty compared to all other informative websites I found about my topic. It toke me more time than expected as well to get to the paper to a place where I seemed content turning it in. so, needless to say, turning in the paper was the easiest and least stressful part of this assignment for me.
