What advice would you now give to someone writing his/her first scientific paper?

I think, I will write this blog about everything. This class was great. This class helped to become a better writer. My advice that going to be writing his/her first scientific paper would be, chose something that you have interest in, do a thorough research about the topic, chose a reliable source, don’t forget to use text citation and full citation. The important thing would be know your reader, keep them engage throughout the paper that they can leave still wanted more.
Thank you.

With your paper done or almost done, how do you feel !!

It feels pretty good to be done with the paper. It feels like a huge accomplishment. Paper looks good to me so let’s hope it will get me good grades too. Now that it’s done, I can finally relax and try to have some fun which is over-due, but I don’t think I can relax till I get my result. 
Thank you.

How do you feel about the comments, or lack of comments, that have been made to your blog posts?

Hi everyone,
Last week was a little emotional week. I was so nervous so post my paper. How I would feel if someone gave me a bad review because this is my baby. Your baby is always perfect in your eyes. But then after posting the paper, there was a disappointment, no one was reading my paper. I had to wait whole week for someone to read my paper, “please someone read my paper and tell me that you liked it”. I don’t know why no one wanted to read my paper. I had the same experience in my last class too; no one wanted to read my paper. Is something wrong with me, why no one likes me when I am so nice with everyone else? I always try to be friendly and always try to reach out to others, made me a little sad but I guess there is nothing you can do. This class is almost over and we will just move on to other. 
Have a great week everyone!

Peer Review!!

I haven’t had any bad experience with peer’s review yet, so I don’t know how I will feel if someone’s gave me a hard review. Last week, I got a small lecture from Prof. that we suppose to give constructive review on D.B. I am such a chicken to say anything bad to other people. Believe me, I try my best but it’s just not me. I am a people-pleaser. I understood what Prof was saying to me and how it should be done.
Ok back to the subject. Peer review could be a great thing. They can point out your mistakes that your eyes can’t see. Peer review can help you to become a strong writer. A fresh set of eyes cannot hurt anybody in my book. You just have to keep your head high and take it in a positive way; hopefully something great will come out of it.
Have a Happy and Save Thanksgiving Everyone.

The Past Six Weeks!!

The past six weeks have been pretty interesting. Some time it feels like a roller-coaster ride, the struggle, disappointment, happiness, and stress that comes with it throughout the term. I have always struggles with writing. It’s not me. I am a person who always had a hard time conveying my feelings through words, so this class has been a little challenge. When this term started, I took the Prof. Peter’s seminar. I really liked what he said that if you have a paper due at the end of any term, start your research today and start writing your paper from this week. Write 5 minutes a day, finish your paper as early as possible that way you will have enough time throughout your term to twit it. So I just did that. I wrote my rough draft weeks ago and have been working on it to make it better. But I have been dying for someone to read it and tell me how I did. I am glad that I did it early as I am not stressing myself right now.
 All this stress and hard work makes it a worthwhile in a sense. I am keeping my eyes on the finish line with the reward “my degree”.

Going back to school have given me a new meaning to life!

School has given me a new meaning to life. I mean, I was getting to a point where I needed something new in my life. I needed a new direction in life and going back to school was too scary. How I would feel sitting with teenagers? How embarrassing it would be if I don’t know the answer or need to ask for help? This entire question kept me away from school for a long time, but going back to school was the best thing, I did in my life.
 Online school is so great, yeah you have a lot of homework to do but still easy to fit it into your busy schedule. It gave me confidence. I feel so happy. I have something to talk about with other people. It has totally changed my life. I am never bore any more. I always have something to do now. Something to look forward too.
