Ironically this paper hardly contains a trace of my actually writing style. This is mainly because I am very unmotivated by the subject of self reflection and I knew going in that there was not going to be any profound discoveries in it. While this may be just a bad excuse it is still the truth. My grade school and high school had almost no effect on my writing style. It comes almost entirely from people that I have met and the works that I have read. This paper was also difficult to write because to be honest the class did not have a real effect on my writing style. The problems that I mentioned in this were things that I already knew about going in. What I did take from the class, however, is learning about rhetoric and being able to put names to the ways that I use language. This will be valuable for me in the future when I analyze other people and what they are saying. The best thing that I got out of the class was writing the papers themselves. Practice makes perfect and if I am to continue to advance myself I need to practice my writing whenever I can.

It was elegant, thoughtful, and he commanded a brilliant vernacular. Not to be out done I wrote back in the same lofty, semantic heavy, and metaphoric voice he had given me. This was the first time that I
