Writing my This I Believe essay was pretty hard for me. I was apprehensive about the whole thing, since I am not good at talking about personal experiences. I have learned so much in my life that I believe in so strongly, that it was even very difficult to pick one. As a thinker it made my mind want to "blow up." As a writer even though it was hard for me, I really enjoyed it because it is easier to write about since it is relatable and makes me think more as a real person. Writing "I"'s in an essay really threw me off a bit because I wasn't trained and taught that way. The word count of the essay made me aggrivated as well, because I had so much to write about and the limited amount of words made me stress. I felt like I wouldn't have gotten my point across. Even though writing this essay was a struggle for me I really did enjoy it and was proud of myself that I could actually write about a personal experience.

So far, English has been really good. I have been up to date with all the assignments. I've also been really into the assignments as well. Even though the 6 Word Memoir process was really hard for me to make one up, I still really liked that assignment in general. The 6 Word Memoir process made me feel really overwhelmed because it made me think so much. It was really hard for me to describe myself in just 6 words, but that is what makes it so interesting. Coming up with my 6 Word Memoir was very straining, but I am proud of what I have come up with. Everything in english has been going well so far and I hope it goes well for me for the rest of the year.
When I was little I used to hate reading with a burning passion but used to love writing. It turns out as I grew up it switched. In elementary school, I used to have a really hard time with reading. I remember when I read I would just sing the words in my head and not remember what I read afterwards. Unlike reading, I used to enjoy writing. It was easier for me back then since I had a crazy imagination. Now writing is more complicated for me because I find it hard to get my thoughts into words. If I get a writing assignment I feel a bit overwhelmed, since writing is not my strong point. There are some writing assignments that I do not feel as overwhelmed with. Like creative writing assignments are easier for me since I am not as restricted if I were writing an essay. Now reading is one of my hobbies, I guess. I really enjoy reading now I think I didn't like it as much before because I have finally found what types of books I like to read. I like to read realistic fiction I realized that I like when it stories are relatable because its sort of on a personal level. It is just pretty ironic how I used to love writing and now I don't enjoy it as much and how I used to hate reading and I love it now.
