Campus Life

Since I was in elementary school, all I can remember is always writing.  It could be making a picture book with short captions underneath the pictures, to journal entries, to diaries, to research papers, to narrative stories and poems.  I never realized how writing is important in our daily lives.  However, experiencing this throughout my childhood to my adulthood, I have seen the importance of writing.  It allows creativity, critical thinking and problem solving.  Writing has been a unique process for me throughout my life.  Going back to my childhood, I have seen how much I have grown as a writer.  I have more experience in writing and can put ideas together a little easier than when I was seven. However, I am still learning throughout my adulthood.  My journey in writing will become a life long experience.  Ten years from now, I will look back at my writings and be able to see how I have become a stronger writer.
