I improve the best when I'm put under pressure, and that's no less true here.
Whether it's my own mistake missing some important information or just being overwhelmed by how much I need to take in, this course is challenging me in ways I didn't expect. It's hard, and it's stressful, and I'm excited to see if I can do my best with the limited time I have available.
Being up against adversity really adds something to learning experiences, and so far, I'm having my writing challenged in a way I didn't expect. I've had success with my writing online, but that's a very different story to writing for a professional college course and degree - some of the conventions and habits that I rely on simply won't work here.
The most important thing is that I keep moving. I just need to get over a few hurdles and things will begin to snowball - hopefully in a direction that will see me improve in the long-term.
