Week 8 Assignment 1 The thing that I enjoyed the most about this course was learning about the correct use of different symbols (quotation marks, slashes, colons, etc). Because I currently hold an administrative job I have to write most of the time. I noticed that my writing improved in such a good way that I received complements from some of my co-workers in several occasions. On the other hand, the thing that I hated the most about this course was outlining. Not because of the actual assignment, but because I literally had to outline the whole book. I would not recommend taking this out of the course. Although I thought it was boring it was actually a very good way of learning. I definitely think that the part of this course that helped me the most was learning about the different types of writing. For instance, when I e-mail my girlfriend back in the states about what I did on the weekend, she replies to me and tells me how much she enjoys reading my e-mails. She says that she imagines herself being there, doing what I was doing. Also, being able to write in all these different writing styles gives me confidence about my academic potential. I become encouraged when I have to write a paper for any of my classes. I know that I will do a good job.

On the other hand, they had items like pictures, which brought memories and dreams. They carried a human thumb, which might be considered to be an item of good luck. They also carried a bible, which represented beliefs and many other things. This is
