I feel most proud in choosing good detailed events for my paper. I thought they were really helpful for getting the reader to fully understand how I felt about the topic I was writing. Organization has always been difficult for me, especially in writing. I definitely think putting them in chronological order is what made it so difficult because I would remember something and then have to go back and find the specific time in which it occurred. I tried really hard though to keep it in order and have it make sense. My process for writing the paper went something like this: I waited all week before for you to talk about what we should write and how we should write it so I thought, this is obviously valuable information, I should just wait until he's done giving all the advice we would need. Well by the time you were done giving out your advice, it was Friday and the paper was due the Monday after. So after class, which is my last one of the day, I came back to my dorm and worked on the online discussion which was actually about how we planned and wrote our paper. Well it was hard to write about seeing I hadn't even started. After that I started my paper and had a goal for myself. I love to go out on the weekends and hit up Pb's so I told myself to write half of it now, and finish it Sunday before chapter, because Sunday is the day of rest in my room. So as I started writing my paper I realized it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I actually got to three pages before I even went out that night. Then I did my weekend right. Come Sunday I found myself with a bunch of time to finish the paper. I actually slept till about three but that's not the point. The part about the paper that bummed me out was the thesis and conclusion. I just feel like they are always so cheesy and it's so annoying to me. That's another thing I hate about writing papers, they are the same thing over and over again. And I feel like they are always so cheesy. I don't know, that's my personal problem with writing papers but whatever. Back to the story, so Sunday just felt like the longest day ever half because I layed in bed but mostly because my roommate never likes to have the blinds open or the lights on except for this one dimly lit lamp on her desk and it really hurts me because I need sunlight or really just any type of light and I'm also scared of her so opening them while she is there means she could kick my ass. But yeah so I finished the paper and had to use her printer to print it but also we had to print out this 26 page thing for chapter that night and my roommate didn't even know about it until I told her and she got to print hers out but not mine which I can't tell who is in the wrong because I know that it's her printer but she wouldn't have even known if I wouldn't have told her. She's in the wrong actually.
