While I appreciated that one of my peers provided feedback on my work, I feel that the feedback that was provided did not fulfill the assignment. My peer did not provide detailed feedback on my paper that could be adequately incorporated in my review and revisions. Most of the information that was provided as feedback were simply statements that reiterated what the prompt question was. Please see the below feedback provided to me by my peer.
What comes to your head when you think of writing? Personally, I think of a long dreadful process, that I am not particular too good at. Even though one half of my brain wants to hate writing, the other half realizes how important of a quality writing really is. Over my high school and middle school years I have learned many of my own deficits when it comes to writing. Attempting to over come many these deficits in my writing, I attempt to seek perfection in my limited strengths. I am going to discuss assets and weaknesses of mine, that make me believe that I am no better than just a average writer.
Ever since I began reading as a small child, I have loved literature and the written word. However, even though this has always been the case, I originally was not a literature major when I entered Arizona State University. Instead, I began my college career as a Physics major. What I came to realize after completing some of the required courses for the major was not that I was not good at physics since I had done exceptionally in all my classes, but that I was more interested in reading the articles and writing the assignments for my classes than I was in actually doing research in the physics department. Therefore, even as I was pursuing an entirely different degree, my love of literature and writing was still fundamental to my learning, and it was this that eventually lead to me changing my major to English Literature. Coming to this decision to switch majors was difficult, however the experience was beneficial in the long run. Not only am I now enjoying the work I am doing as a student more, I also understand that writing, editing, and reading critically is important to all disciplines. Had I not first begun my
The College of Charleston was my preferred college out of the colleges I applied to. A majority of the time this was a good choice. Then there are times when part of me thinks attending a different college would have been a better idea. Then again, it is only the first semester of my freshman year. Freshman year has a handful of requirements for classes, including the First Year Experience and the seminar that goes with it and many other general education courses. There were a good many choices to choose from for my First Year Experience class and The Gullah Community: Ethnographic Research in Gender and Identity was the one that stood out to me the most.

Before I became a student at BCCC I was attending CCBC the college was awesome my field of study was Nursing. I left the college because I needed to be close to my grandmother because she had some illnesses going at the time. My main focus when I attended BCCC was to get all of my pre-requisites done so I could attend the Nursing Program. When I started classes in fall 2011 I started during well, but I fell short in some of the classes because of appointments I had to attend with my grandmother. Fall 2011 I received an F in English 200 and a D in Math 107. I knew this would affect my GPA. So I said to myself, maybe I should take a break and I had a long talk with my grandmother. She told me to make sure I focus on school and she will be fine. So spring
I was a 13 years old when I joined Shamrock in 2007, and it was the first time I was living away from my family. It was pretty hard to get used to everything at first, but things started to get only better and better.
To describe an event or experience in my life and how it influenced my decision to further my education was a culmination of several situations that had happened in the last two years. It started with my place of employment. I had gone up as high that I could in the company and without any further education I no longer had the ability to make more money or to do anything else in the corporation. I began to get frustrated with the situation and with myself. I knew I had more to offer and the desired to do so. As the days passed I had a conversation I had with my daughter. She had questioned the importance of her schooling. I was stressing to her the importance of a good education and how that education will change her life for the better. I explained how an education can give
Writing is the unlimited practice of expressing one’s own ideas and beliefs. It is complicated and confusing at times, but once you understand what the writer is trying to say, it becomes in adventure. For me writing is difficult because I truly never learned how to write. I struggled in English for SAT and in Reading for the SAT, but I always tried to better myself. I learned that writing isn’t about how the grammar necessarily, writing is about what the content is telling you. Writing is trying to grab the audience to read your story. It is your chance to have a voice and have chance for people to hear you. Writing is the necessity to learning and the necessity to life. It connects everyone around you with you. This practice will continue to flourish and will always be an important quality.
When I am not working at my grocery store, I coach a high school bowling team. I have been bowling for many years and coaching for two. Since I took over the team, we have won back-to- back state championships. However, with any sport comes strategic thinking between the head coach and his assistants. Before every match, I and my assistant coach have to create a line-up that obtains stressful strategic thinking. The way bowling matches work is that we have a team of six bowlers and each bowler is matched up against their opponent on the other team. If that person wins their game, they get a point. The most points at the end of the match wins the match. So, when writing my lineup, I have to determine which players to match up to the other team’s players. I could put my strongest player against their strongest player and maybe get a point, or I can put my strongest player against their weakest players and guarantee a point. Also, I could mix up my lineup and place the bowlers in any lineup.
In Aug. 2010, I completed my B.S. in Environmental science concentration in biology at Taylor University. Courses I have taken, allowed me to be familiar with different aspects of biology, ecology and geology. As a result, I was able to experience the tangibility of these fields, for example gathering and analyzing field samples. Furthermore, one summer was spent taking and examining water quality samples, as well as examining plants and animal specimens. For my senior project, I designed and completed a practicum, where I removed invasives plants from a local forest near my hometown. After accomplishing the objectives, the superintendent offer me the position of a natural resource specialist.
I am from Costa Rica, and I came to the United States eight years ago. The first obstacle that I had to face was the language. However, I knew that if I wanted to get a degree in this country, I needed to study hard and learn the language. Therefore, by that time, my goal was to learn English and start my education. After taking English as a second language classes at Bakersfield College and Adult School, I felt that I was ready to start my AA at Bakersfield College. After I got my Associate degree in Sociology, I felt that I could do more. I decided to get a higher education and get a Bachelor in Sociology at California State University. Now, I am proud to say that this coming semester is my last semester before I graduate with my masters
When it comes to reading for information, I tend to go back and forth to the scuba diver and a guy on a Jet Ski. It depends on what I am reading per say, if I find what I am reading interesting then I read more in depth rather than something I find unappealing. Generally speaking, when I look for information for a given assignment, I tend to ‘treasure hunt’ for information and facts I believe are relevant to the topic I am assigned to. I do not give myself the time to actually dive into readings if I am looking for specific information. The reason to why I do this is because I must find information quickly in order to start the writing process and finish the given assignment. On the other hand, when I read something for pleasure, I take
In this self reflection, I will be discussing about my limiting and supporting beliefs, my transference examples, and the primary and secondary function of my major habits. My limiting belief is that I do not have the skills needed to be in a manager position or communicate effectively, and my supporting belief is that I can learn and improve my skills to do the things that my limiting beliefs maintain that I could not do, such as being a manager or an effective communicator. My transference is the fear of admitting my mistakes to my supervisors that is transferred from the experience I have with my father when I was young. Lastly, I talk about my major habits, such as doing homework early, which primarily gives me ample time to work on my
