This semester was really enjoyable. At first, I was really scared because the first day was really intimidating. You were super blunt about the way class was going to be everyday and I was not prepared for that on my second day of college class. I really liked everyone in the class and I feel like everyone contributed to make it enjoyable. It was different from other English classes in many ways. First of all, my other English teachers did not use cuss words so freely. In high school, teachers always had to be so careful about what they said in class and to the students but you had your own way of doing things, which made class really funny. It was also different because you were not strict about how we had to structure our papers. In high school, teachers were so specific about how many paragraphs our papers how to be or how many words there needed to be. Also it was really frustrating having to get papers approved about structure and not so much the content. With you, I felt like you were more concerned with our content and not so much the structure of our paper, which made things much easier when I was writing it. I feel like the most beneficial part of this semester was going to you for office hours to get my papers revised. I told myself I was going to go to you before every paper was due to get it revised and I am so thankful that I did because you helped me so much. I feel like the least beneficial part of this semester were the unannounced in class essayís. I really did like the short stories in the TC Boyle book but I counted on you going over the stories to help understand them. When we had the essayís I felt so rushed and unsure because they are such in depth stories and have meanings that go so much deeper than what I think. I am glad we have them because it makes me think about the stories more but the essayís make me so nervous and stressed.
