During my first year of college, I have made things for me way harder then they had to be. Specifically in my spring semester of college when I began to take the class of English Composition 1. Taught by the brilliant and marvelous Ms. Ravick, English Comp. 1 was by far my toughest class of the semester. Throughout my semester of English Comp. 1 I have gain the enjoyment of writing essays, coming up with my own ideas, and stop repeating my writing when I write essays.
Coming into English 101 freshman year was something that I was kinda afraid of. In high school English class never served as my strong point and I found myself constantly frustrated and confused as to why I never got the grade I felt I deserved. I would write essays to get it over ...view middle of the document...

With this class, I have learned to enjoy writing again. I have made it a point to communicate my own thoughts and feelings opposed to simply the thoughts of famous writers and authors before me.  This class has built up my confidence in my own writing and for that I am grateful. I would have never obtain a major increase in my writing skill if I have not taking this seriously.
One of the main issues I needed to tackle in college was to stop being repetitive; I needed to learn to narrow down my thoughts and ideas. This is something that now I can do with ease. I am able to sit down and revise my thesis and my ideas with structured outlines so much that in a way it forces me to come up with specific examples directly relating to my thesis. I have learned to write freely structured outlines to get the thought process going, something that saves me a lot of time when I am making my full drafts. Before this course I wrote three body paragraphs with two to three supporting quotes in each one and a basic summary of each quote. The only part of the paragraph that would be mine would be the topic sentence, everything else was evidence I found from other authors.
This year, I have learned to use my own voice to communicate my ideas. I have learned to utilize outside sources in a way where they simply keep the flow of my paper, and are not the main focus. I have also stopped “jumping around” throughout my papers. I now stick with one point and after a thorough discussion on it; I am able to move on to the next concept, without constantly bringing in old ideas and things that I stated earlier on in the paper. Throughout this semester I find myself getting better and better with each paper and truly demonstrating that I have learned and I have grown, and I hope to continue this growth throughout my time here at Jackson State.
