I know that I am a great learner just as much as I am a person. I've had a little of my most and least challenging aspects in this class. The most challenging aspect I've had was public speaking. I get nervous quickly when I have to be in front of a lot of people and have to present something. I also get scared that they might not like what I have to say about what I am presenting. My least challenging aspect was writing the controversial essay. I enjoyed writing the controversial essay because I had a lot to say about the subject that I chose to do. I also had fun doing this essay because I liked giving my opinion on the subject and hearing the opposite opinion on the subject. I have learned to deal with all these aspects one at a time. I have very little to regret and a lot to remember about this class. I regret that I didn't take advantage about everything that was offered to me in this class. I regret that I didn't have the chance to learn all I could about the essay writing method. I also feel sorry that I didn't get the chance to improve my grammar. I have a lot to remember about this class. I will always remember the people that had this class with me and I will remember how much fun they made this class for me. I will also remember how much I have learned in this class. Although there are things I regret not doing, I will always remember the things that made my stay most memorable. Yippy!!! I'm done!!! I can't believe how quick this year past me by. I am thankful for everything that I learned and for everyone that I have met this year. I cannot begin to tell u how much this year has affected my life and I am glad to say that it has changed my life in a positive way. I am glad top say that I am ready to move on to the next year, so bring it on!!! Well, what more can I say but yippy!!!
