I wanted to improve my writing skills, make my writing pieces stronger, learn how to keep readers engaged in my writing pieces, and work on my MLA formatting coming into the class. When I took English 113, I discovered that MLA formatting was something that I needed to work on. There were certain elements of MLA formatting that I would forget to incorporate into my papers such as putting my last name in the right hand corner of my paper, not double spacing my header, and remembering to not underline nor bold the title of my papers.
As I began to write my college essay, I had to think back about the important deciding factors in my life. Because I chose to write about prompt five I was encouraged to choose something truly impactful to write a good essay.

It is not common to include courses on death and dying in nursing curriculums (Jonas, Simpson, Pilkington, MacDonald & McMahon 2013, 2). Patient death and dying may impact nurses adversely, producing feelings such as depression and guilt (Martins, Chaves & Campos 2014, 172; Gerow, Conejo, Alonzo, Davis, Rodgers & Domian 2010, 123; Shorter & Stayt 2010, 160).

In the summer of 2015 I received a full scholarship to attend Jonathan R. Reynolds Young Writers Workshop at Denison University, an opportunity that shaped a simply hobby into an enduring passion. As a writer, I am highly critical of my work, however being accepted to the eight-day program merely by my own literary merit definitely served as an example that not only am I capable of writing something worthy, but that I have the power to achieve any goals laid before me. While I attended the program I greeted 35 peers from California all the way to Zimbabwe, South Africa. My core classes consisted of Fiction and Poetry, where I was taught by award winning authors and poets. To be honest, I felt entirely inadequate the first few days. Here I was
English isn't one of my favorite subjects, but it was interesting to learn much more about English through this course. This course, overall, taught me about how to organize my ideas and the importance of clicking the button that checks one's spelling on the paper. Even though, I improved throughout my time in this course in my organization and expressing my ideas. I still have some mistakes to improve on in my writing. English 101 showed the importance of writing and the ability to express my ideas throughout my academic career.

Our first lesson was to learn to work together, as a team, to prepare a short memo, long memo, letter, and email for use in the business world. This is a lesson that will experience many times as we do our daily work. Punctuation and grammar are so important to present to the client and other organizations that we are professionals. It could mean the loss of a sale or acquiring new business. It’s like dressing for work; looking professional or unprofessional.
The dreaded English 102. Could this be my final English course in my career as a student? I don’t know for sure. I still need to decide what my major will be in. There is something that I know for sure, that is, needing to take this class to move on. I am not certain how my time in this class will go, but I plan to work hard to get the best grade that I can. Hence, I have decided to get this out of the way now, I look to fine-tune my writing skills, and I expect this course to help me understand my writing style.
During the course of the quarter, I feel that I have progressed somewhat. I've gained a lot of knowledge on rhetorical strategies and how to present arguments effectively. In the writings I have written, I feel that each writing works towards meeting the course goals. Logos, ethos, and pathos were strategies and ideas we were introduced to (if not already in the past) and were built upon throughout the quarter. The knowledge gained over the course of the quarter weren't only those three types of appeals. Rhetorical strategies like proposals helped reinforce the course and using rhetorical analysis in different situations have become easier throughout the quarter. I believe that I have made sufficient progress towards becoming a better
