This has been a couple hardest months in a very long time, so school and trouble does not mix well. I have been trying to get focused and complete all of my assigned work but I only end up doing some of it. I did all of the workload last semester, it is just the simple fact that right now in my life I am personally not in a steady strong mindset. For the work I did do I feel like it was mediocre for the quality of work I did last semester. I had a strong feeling towards the covering aspect essay and how these everyday people who are just different by a label, color, clothes, just the simple way they identify themselves can cause the society around them to bash them, physically, mentally and emotionally abuse these normal people. I feel like I felt so strongly about this topic because I dealt with discrimination towards my identity before, not to the extent of the way these people get treated but I felt their problems first handedly. I feel as if my ideas and the way I personally felt about both of these essays were laid out on my paper very well and I helped build a strong underlying support towards the topic at hand.
There were a bunch of techniques that we were taught either this semester or last semester and I used a couple of these techniques but I definitely believe I could have put more of the techniques that I was taught into my essay, which would make my essay a whole lot better and probably elevate my writing skills. Another thing that I could have done as a writer would have been just to simply try to manage my time better, which is hard given the circumstances I am being put in right now, but that’s no excuse. I will continue to try and do my work fully and on time.
