I’ve never really been capable of actuality of making stories up or having a huge imagination. Although, I do love to read until my heart is content. I remember reading every single Harry Potter when they came out and I would fall asleep reading them every night. Until now, I’ve been really weary of college English classes. I went to ISU back in 2009 and I took two English classes that were absolutely horrible. When I was told I had to take, two more English classes at the same time, it was déjà vu; I was baffled and dreading the long 3 hour night classes, at dinner time and during precious family. Even after taking advanced English in high school and passing both of my ISU classes I was again stuck taking 6 hours of required classes. Fortunately, I was put into Mr. Kash’s class and my whole perspective on English changed. In this reflective essay, I will be showing you how I’ve quickly rebounded from my abstinent from schooling and went from hating English to loving it.

    Even though English 101 is a beginner writing class, it taught me how to apply those writing skills outside of the classroom walls, while helping me more than any of my other high school English classes. English 101 became better than predicted once the fear of procrastination disappeared, the writing became an expression. I feel now that I can write without being judged, and I can make the mistakes I need in order to excel. Likewise, the feeling of being confident in writing is the uttermost important lesson that this class has provided me with. Writing is not something that should be feared, but something that should be…

    I’m not at all where I probably should be as a writer, but I feel like I have improved my writing skills. Through this English class and my amazing Professor, I have gained an appreciation for literature and have been able to write from experience rather than because I have too. My English improved dramatically through finally understanding how to put all the information I have researched into a paper. I feel more comfortable in writing my papers because I know I’m not just putting random information to fill up my word count. I met my personal writing goal more than I thought I would.…

    I began reading huge chapter books and challenging myself to try new things; my English grade continued to remain low. Days became weeks and weeks became months and soon I was entering middle school dreading English, dreading reading, dreading writing and I just lost interest. I plateaued and returned to the same situation, I had at my old school; however, this time, I did not have the aid of my mom and I regressed back to my shy personality. I completely lost hope, my ego and my will to succeed. Yes, I know, I am making this seem like one gigantic Shakespearean tragedy, but at the time I was a stressed out fifth grader and felt like my life was falling…

    My first semester of college has been such a major change from high school because Professor Collins was very detailed about what needs to be fixed and how to fix it. While I was in high school, my English teacher did not do a very good job at giving feedback. Also, having my classmates give ideas on what to write about always played a big part in writing my final draft. I also thought it was a crazy idea when Professor Collins told me that I should read my paper out loud but now I do it for every paper and will continue to do it. My biggest regret this semester was not going to the writing center more and waiting last minute to do my papers.…

    Throughout the course of this English class I have struggled as a writer and as well with myself. Reading the description of the English 104 course I second guess myself as fear and anxiety overcame me, as a rockslide pounding against the floor. I spent a few hours looking at my own writing from high school to developed a sure decision before the 2016 fall semester began. With enough confidence in my high school writing abilities I decided to enroll in this rigorous and accelerated English course. On the first day of being a college student I was already overwhelmed by the amount of work I have already received, and was soon consumed by my own emotions when entering English 104.…

    My first semester at Nicholls State University has led to some major changes to me as a person. The class I had taken have had an impact whether it was positive or negative.

    Throughout my sixteen weeks in English 101 I believe that my writing skills have developed in ways that I never thought they would develop. There is always room for improvement, especially with writing. Before taking this class I thought I was a good writer, but after the first few essays I realized how much I could truly improve upon. The writing topics and prompts we were given each taught me something more about writing, how to structure things, or simple writing tactics that could make my essays better. I’ve never been good with writing formal essays, but this class taught me how to be a lot less informal in my writing.…
