essay life

Finally finished my essay, I feel a bit relaxed. This is the first essay to me, so it is not easy for me to. But through this time, I learn a lot, for instance,   before I worte the eassy I had to read many books whatever from the text books or the books from libruary. Than I had to learn that how to rewrite, summarize, quote and other writing skills that I have learned from the previously classes. 
The most difficult aspect to me is to write academiclly. Sometimes, I used the words that from the spoken English or from the informal situations. Academic writing is not easy to write, you have to remember many academic words and learn how how to use them in your writing instead of other easy words. Then, another difficult aspect is to write logically. I know that writing eassies is not just listing facts or theories, but to logically write them in an academic way, which is earlies and which is later; which is more important and which is less important; which needs to give more ditails and which just have to show in facts.
If I could go back to when I started writing the eassy, maybe I will write something differentlly, for instance, the examples in my essay, because I think many examples in my essay that are not very typical and specificfrom that time, and some of them can not very will proving the theries. in addition, I will write the conclusion differently, because my conclusion seems lack of logical sentances and a bit subjective.
From this eassy, I learnd a lot, maybe the essay is not perfect or some aspects still need to change, but it help me prove a lot whatever the knowlage of the course or the writing of my own. In the next eassy, I am sure that it will be better than this first one if I keep thinking and progressing.

    I can see from your comments that you certainly have learned a lot from writing the essay. I am glad to see that you have used some of the the techniques we covered in class (summarising, quoting etc.). Do you think there are other topics we could have covered which would have helped you write this essay? I’m sure you will continue to progress if you keep working hard.
