    make it better. Admittedly, I should have asked for help sooner and much more than I did, instead of just struggling on my own and not getting very far.

If I ever have to do that kind of paper again I will certainly pick a topic that is easier to focus and I will probably work with someone in the writing center to…

    I honestly don’t remember why I did. I believe it was at the suggestion of my dad. I didn’t understand until that book, what it felt like to say, “it was so good I couldn’t put it down!” I literally, would read all night long, forgoing sleep to get to the next chapter.
