December 21, 2007
This is the first time that I write my essay. Because an essay not only contains good grammar and formal sentences but also contains good and new ideas, I found it ¡s really a tough work. Therefore, when I was writing the essay, I met a lot of difficulties.
I think the most difficult one is to collect the materials which is related to my topic because I need to spend most time finding and reading. What ¡s worse, sometimes I spent much time collecting but finally I found nothing, so I felt frustrated. In addition, reading all the materials was very boring. The most unfortunate thing is that after reading most materials, I found they were not useful at all. That made me crazy. However, sometimes I could find some useful references but they were difficult to understand because they were quite academic and formal. If I wanted to read them clearly, I had to spend lots of time but the time for my essay is limited. Consequently, I had to stay up to write my essay.
Although reading all the academic books are very boring, I found that I read more quickly than before. In fact finally when I read some academic books I did not think they were difficult as I imagine.
If I could go back to when I started writing the essay, I think, I would not know which topic I should choose to write because I knew every topic a little but I could not write more.
Although I spent much time and energy to write my essay, I think I still get a lot. On the one hand, I can write more formal and academic and when I am writing, I care much about the grammar, vocabulary and sentence structure. On the other hand, I can read more quickly and understand more clearly. Though I don not like writing the essay, I still think it is a good way to improve my English and acquire knowledge.
