Unit 9

Writing and research on this subject of diabetes and obesity has enhanced my knowledge about the disease. Their is more than I even imagined about the disease.During the research, and my assignments from the other class has made my tired and worn out. I would mention the great crash of my computer, which elevated my blood pressure. I feel  more at ease now when I have to write. However, writing has always been a struggle for me. I feel more confident in the subject now. I most exciting event that has happened during this course is my understanding of APA. I am not as nervous  as before when I have to us APA format. The information shared in this class has help me with the use of APA format among other writing skills.
Well, we at the end of another course. Composition II has really been challenging. The writing process has a lot of information. During this course I have learn stategies and skills that will accompany me through the personal life as well as my professional life. APA has been something that I truly did not understand and became very confused and uncomfortable with. This course has givenme the tools and information to help in me in APA. Now I don't feel as nervous when I have to use the APA format. The information that was given in this course will assiste anyone in learning the APA format. Thank you professor you have truly helped me get over that hurdle.

"The Man Who Thinks He Can" by Walter D. Wintle

If you think you are beaten , you are.
If yoiu think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like  to win, but think you can't
Its almost a cinch that you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with  a fellow's will;
It's all in the state of mind.

Words of Wisdom

  Rutation is made in a moment: character is built in a lifetime.

lTapping Into Wisdom

Sometime I feel as thought there is not enough time in a day to complete the entire task you would like to. Many times this seem to frustrate me or make me feel uneasy; in these situations, I often go to the “Basic Instructions Before Leaving the Earth”. The Bible has the answers for everything that a person may need. That is why many people refer to the Bible as "Basic Instructions Before Leaving The Earth." The book of Proverbs is filled with wisdom. This is a delightful book to read.

Many days my daily schedule get's to be overwhelming to me. When this happen's I have to remember the reason why I am still living today.  I open my basic instructions before leaving the earth to get encouragement. My feeling today is as if I were drowning and can not swim. I want to live so therefore, I have to go to my basic instructions before leaving the earth which gives me encouragement and raises my motivation and faith. Today I know to overcome life's challenges I  have to use wisdom and know that: FALLING DOWN DOESN'T MAKE YOU A FAILURE, BUT STAYING DOWN DOES.

Many times my day or situation appears to be impossible, but I know it is only a life challange. I have decided to make all these challenges/ situations a motivational and learning adventure.
