How do you feel about peer reviews? What have your experiences with them been like?


I feel that having peer reviews are very helpful, because many will give their honest feedback. Also many will advice you in what they might think will make it better or what they would like to know more off from the topic one is writing about. It helps when a peer review gets very interested in the persons topic, because they might ask themselves questions of what they would like to hear more about. Being able to have peers review our papers is great, because at the end we can go back and add on or take off even organize it better to get the attention to our audience. I have had some mostly positive experiences when it comes to receiving criticism, because I try to not take it negatively do to the fact getting advice can make a greater paper. Just like when we write rough drafts it helps to receive as much feedback as we can, at the end many will have a better written paper.

Writing...

My writing process at first was a bit difficult, because finding the right resources that are needed can be a challenge. Since there is many times that many articles are repeated with the same information it can be frusturating in finding something new that you have not came across. When starting my writing process I like staying organized. Also being able to come up with ideas can be difficult ad something that always helps me is brain storming and writing an outline. This technique gets me going on how I start writing my papers. My school up to now has a big influence in my life because it keeps me atriving for the best of my future. Also their are things that i like learning more about of the things I know a little bit about as well things I have never heard off. To me it is like when we write a research paper and only know a couple things and learn more about a topic eitheir by someone or on are own by researching.

An amazing journey







A couple months back I remember a young teenager who wanted to travel on her boat all around the world. Her name is Abby Sunderland I am very amazed how brave she is in going off in such a long journey through the waves of the ocean on her wild eyes. I would not have thought that she would of kept a blog just like we are in class. Her blog is very interesting how it took place and has came to an end, do to trouble she had with her boat. I think she has inspired many people possibly in diff rent ways. I think if someone has a dream or goal to accomplish something it is possible if you make an effort. I know if I was on a boat by myself i would be very scared and its truly amazing how Abby started this journey and has been able to blog about it as much as possible as she could. If you all get a chance you should check it out.

An amazing view

























Pictures are from http://picasawebgoogle.com/ & my camera ( I hope to get some more myself next time)




This past weekend was not the best day to go visit Serra Cross Park, because it was very cloudy, windy and cold day. I took my boyfriend up their since he had never been up their to see sow much view of Ventura County. I find it really relaxing and very nice place to visit and see sow much of where I am from. I took my boyfriend up their, because I know when were In Los Angeles, Ca he wants to go one day by the Hollywood sign and be able to see all the lights late at night, which I have seen part of Los Angeles, Ca but from a different area. In Serra Cross Park I find it really nice to go on a Sunny day and plan to go again soon for my boyfriend can experience that nice view since we did not have any luck. I always wonder what the history of that place and came across

http://www.serracross.org/ and would not have thought that weddings happen up that hill with that beautiful view. I know many of my friends enjoy going up their as well and be able to see that view. I think you all would enjoy it to if you enjoy being in nature and are ok with heights.
