wow, day 42, it's hard to believe we've been in class that long and that this quarter is almost over! it's almost sad in a way when you think about it.

I didn't have Mr. Peter's last quarter for english, so i'm kind of nervous for this whole MLA deathmatch thing he was talking about. But i'm curios now.

It was really hard to turn my essays in, I almost felt like they were missing something; I hate it when I feel like that about an essay.

I felt the same way, my essays weren't complete like I wanted them to be. I wished I had more time, but I have too many things and homework to do.

I'm very exited about the deathmatches he is talking about and also very nervous about them. I have no idea what he is talking about. do we have to know the MLA style and memorize certain things or what?

I was really amazed at the in class essay this week. As Peters said my rough draft done in that 40 minutes was the best I'd ever written.

Does anyone know what the MLA death match is... sounds very intimidating. I guess we will seee who is up for the challenge!

I am excited and curious about the MLA death match. I also did not enjoy turning my essays in. I don't think I did very well as it is hard to have a good argument, quotes, and solution in about two pages. Mine was over four.

I am looking forward to the peer review tomorrow. Seems that I get some good points of view and some peoplehave good solutions on how to make my paper better. I always learn something from the peer review.

I hope this time i get my point across i did so much reserach on my second essay that i made so different then it was before.

This class was alot of fun. I enjoy the way we take off on tangents no where close to the subject at hand. As far as the "Deathmatch" pad up, if you wear your feeling on your sleeve, run, if your a smart ass run, if your a serious English student, bring a baseball bat for protection.

Day 42, this class has passed by really quickly. This is my second quarter and I can't believe its almost my third. Life goes by really quickly. One more week, next week and it's done. I'm going to try to get my paper done by friday, no I am going to get everything done by friday so I don't have to worry about it over the weekend.

Stupid revision. I really thought that my essay was ok to re write but how wrong I was. Now I gotta do it again...
