    Within this essay there was a lot of reasons that I put in as to why Chipotle is the best place to grab lunch. In this part of the essay, like I’ve said I learned to be able to pick out details and be able to put it on paper in a way that would convince people to go to Chipotle for lunch.

After the first essay, I was able to stop and focus on the rest of the essay, and everything just seemed to click in…
