In regards to the course, I believe I have experienced the greatest improvement in my willfulness to write. It is not a dreadful task anymore, and instead, a way to expressing my feelings and thoughts. This has helped my performance in all classes since it is now easy to explain my logic through my writing. Nevertheless, writing will always be a learning process. As I continue to learn more challenging and thought-provoking material, it has become just as difficult to defend my viewpoints in the most attentive way possible. However, I have made it a priority to continue working on expressing myself and thoughts through writing.
