School update: I had to read 44 pages for just 1 chapter in my Interpersonal Communications class aka Com-101, and my assignment was to post a 1 page response single spaced starting with a thesis about the chapter and then finishing with a reflection on something I found worth writing about. My choice was CMC(computer mediated communication) and how the book said its users found this to be a positive way of communicating. I gave my opinion that even though I agree with CMC (and choice to be lazy in my own home by texting my other family members) that it doesn't replace face-to-face communication on the whole. After posting my response electronically I am happy to say that I got 20/20!!! Here is my instructor's comment : Really excellent response, Rachel. Well written with a great personal reflection at the end. Nice job. Keep it up!
Woo hoo! Feels good to get a comment like that especially when you are first starting a class and not sure what to expect. Plus I'm a horrible communicator and this just goes to show that maybe I'm a better paper writer.
