I am proud of the fact that I know my topic is one which I am extremely passionate about, which ensures that I will remain motivated throughout the writing process. I’m also pleased with primary research I’m doing, and talking to my supervisor Mr. Hickey has been really helpful in this process from the very beginning. I’ve learned that it’s so easy to forget that everything has to be condensed into 4000 words, meaning my initial question had to be narrowed down, and that there are so many components to this essay, like referencing/citing, which I have not had to do a lot in my previous work, so there is a learning curve there. However, time management is crucial but going to be difficult, so I will need to plan accordingly as I tend to get overwhelmed. Conversations with teachers and my peers indicates that my plan may need more detail.
