For my paper, Iím most proud of the fact that I found a subject to write about. When the paper was assigned, I had no idea what I would write about. I was so freaked out about what to write about, it was all I could focus on for a few days. Then one day while talking to my aunt, I realized how much Oliver has changed my life, and that I should write my paper about him. But once I started thinking about what to include in my paper, I was afraid I didnít have enough to write 4 pages about. But I was able to sit down and write 4 pages about him and how heís affected me.
The thing I am most apprehensive about in my paper is the quality of my writing. In class we talked about how this paper was much more casual, and that it shouldnít be written like our papers in high school. I wouldnít say my paper isnít good, but I always get anxious when I do something for the first time. I donít know what kind of writing is expected from me, and I always worry about that. Iím also afraid that my thesis isnít written correctly. Iíve struggled with English my whole life, and Iím really hoping this class will change that.
I did more thinking about this paper than actual writing. Iím not a very visual person, so I knew brainstorming on a piece of paper wouldnít be very helpful to me. The past two weeks before turning this paper in, I would sit on my bed and think about Oliver, and the way he changed my life. I thought about the positives and negatives, and focused on what was important to include in my paper. For my thesis, I wrote it on day in class when we were discussing the paper, and stuck with that. I wrote the rest of my paper the weekend before it was due. I didnít do any other homework that day because I needed to focus on my paper. I did, however, take a short break while writing to take a nap.
