Over my many years of schooling I have learned the process of writing a good paper. It requires thinking, planning, doing, and changing.
Oh, thinking! This is a big part of life. Or at least it is a big part of my life. My mom says my brain goes a hundred miles and hour and I say that my brain moves faster than the rest of me. This is where it all begins. In my life, this means plans, creative processes, everything. I mean EVERYTHING.
Planning. This is also where I get caught. Planning is easy. It is easy to plan for everything: life, grad school, work, etc. Sometimes, maybe even oftentimes, I get caught up in the planning. I like planning. I like speculating and dreaming.
Doing: this is where things start to get scary for me. There is opportunity to screw up in the part of life, thank the perfectionist in me for seeing all of these opportunities. But somehow I get through each day, and what has happened has happened and it will all be ok because I have done my best.
Glorious Change! I am so lucky to live in a world where many things can be forgiven and changed. This makes the doing so much easier. Sometimes I mess up but I get a new chance tomorrow!
