Portfolio 3 Struggles and Accomplishments!

Struggles and Accomplishments!

"Sadly" this is my third and final portfolio for news writing. Throughout this semester I have learned many important things that will help me regardless to my career choice. I also am proud to say that this semester I have done my best in keeping up with all my work. Although I do find myself procrastinating to a point, I believe exercises and assignments such as blogs have prevented me from falling far behind! When I do fall behind it is evident in my work, and I am not proud of this. But I do feel that in my eyes I have shown improvement and to me that is the important thing. Sure A's are always nice, but as long as I know I tried my hardest I am happy with the product.

Not only do I think this was my best blog, but I feel that the topic got me thinking the most. I also had a lot of good discussion and interaction on this blog. If I could go as far as saying I was most proud of this blog I would, but it sounds rather silly. I feel that this blog, one of my final for the semester, shows my growth and improvement in this class. I hope you enjoyed it as well!
