The importance of grit was very insightful. Definitely going to rethink some bad study habits.

Class was very helpful today! Got some good insight about my thesis and also got some good ideas based on what I liked about other students theses... thanks! :)

I really enjoyed the poetry reading with Leann, she has a great sense of humor and was great with the audience.

It's always a bummer when I have to work on the days we have oppurtunities for bonus points. I'm glad we went over thesis because that is something I struggle with a lot and it helped going over them as a class.

It was nice writing up our thesis statements today and seeing how everyones differs. The Importance of Grit was also interesting. Practice, practice, practice..it's the only way to get better.
