Hello readers. The first thing I would tell someone writing not just a scientific paper but any type of paper for school is to start it early and read it out loud many times. Even though I started mine early and used all the resources that were available to me, I still got hammered. I'm surprised my A & P paper did better! In these 10 weeks, I think my cite/ reference skills strengthened the most. I think I finally got the hang of it. I do think I still need to work on my wording. The big problem is that my vocabulary is not where it should be due to my lack of reading.
I really don't have any finial thoughts. I do wish my grade was a bit higher but I will take it as another learning experience. I did have fun in this class, from start to week nine! Week 10, not so much because of the grade. I take all of it in stride though, what else can I do? Although this is my last post for school I do plan to update my blog every now and then. Like I said, once a week. As for the title of this post… I have no idea myself lol.

Hello readers. Well, it has been a great nine weeks in my Comp II class. I have not made any changes in anything because I have the same schedule for every class, but I have had one challenge so far in these past weeks. Having two 6+ page projects due at the same time is NOT fun. However I did plan how I was going to get through it, and so far it’s going great. In week 8 I started the paper for my Comp II class and this week I started the paper for my A & P class. I only have to add the abstract to my Comp II class then I am done. My A & P class I have about two more pages, so I am on the right track.
I hope to keep in touch with some of my classmates and my professors; they were so amusing this semester. I learned so much from my classmates, and it is a bit sad to not see them again. The seminars were so fun this semester also. First time both classes noticed that the classes were mostly women. Even though women, well talk about women stuff and make jokes about men... I still had fun. I do hope a few classmates will read my blog and leave a post once in a while. I do plan to update it at least once a week.

Throughout this process I have never had any issues; I take one day at a time to prevent this from happening. I honestly don’t mind the lack of comments. I have a facebook and twitter and I don’t get comments from my posts that often so I really don’t mind. It would be great if I did though because I do live alone so comments would keep me at least a little busier. I might continue to use my blog after I’m done with this class. I like to keep in touch with my professors and classmates.
On another note, this weather in Philadelphia is crazy! One week it’s in the late 90’s now it’s in the mid-early 80’s. Next week will be another heat wave. When I am done all my homework for the day I get so bored at home. I do play my ps3 a bit but that can only help me for so long. Before school I played a game called World of Warcraft for hours, and some days I played it all day. I do miss it sometimes. Being a holy knight (paladin) with his trusty steed and creating havoc in the Horde cities was so much fun. I guess we all have to grow out of things sometimes in our lives in order to make them better.
