Mid-Self Evaluation Essay As this semester has begun, and I have begun to adjust to this course’s requirements, expectations, and goals I have found myself taking more risks and challenging my prior writing style. I’ve been a little apprehensive with my writing style this semester and feel that at times I may be missing the entire ideas of the topic. Although I do the work and get a good grade, I always feel uncertain before posting a blog or turning in my final assignment. Although the entire courses topic is nothing foreign to me it has become a challenge for me to write about. The homework reading materials and blogs have been very helpful for me so far in this semester.

I think that I do a quality job when blogging and doing homework assignments on time, I do read the materials as well as annotate and blog when I’m done so I can fully understand the pieces.

I couldn’t possibly make the length quota without being entirely redundant which became a huge difficulty for me when completing this assignment. Throughout the entire semester I’ve found difficulty and ease within assignments, readings, blogs, and attendance. At times I over think a certain assignment or reading and underestimate my abilities. With the help of sources such as the handbook, writing center, materials, and your advice as well as my peers I think that I’ve overall achieved a good grade in this class and I hold high hopes for myself in continuing this semester.
