So, instead of going to the Writing and Research lab simply for the sake of fulfilling the class assignment, I went with some intent in mind. Since it was mandatory for us to go, I thought I might as well get something useful out of it. I had two questions in mind as I got there, and then I left with all the answers needed. I might as well say that I thought it was somewhat helpful--or at least I persuaded myself to think that way. I wouldn't say that I would run back there for help if I end up needing any, as I do get really self-concious when getting individual one on one help like this. I know it is helpful, and that they are trained to be at our service; however, I still cringe at the thought of doing things like this. Maybe it's a phobia that I need to get over. Oh well, it's done now. I'll consider going back there one day when I'm feeling courageous and deeply in need of help.

Oh and I forgot, I did get some more good sources and he really did help me narrow my topic down with more keywords to think about.


  1. I think my phobia is more like the whole assignment! That's great you went in there with a positive mindset. I'm sure that really helped.

  2. I can see what you mean, especially when giving my underdeveloped idea of what to do some people might get frustrated or think less of you but my experience at the writing center was pretty helpful.

    1. I have the same phobia! But I actually think my phobia is giving my ideas and work to someone close to my age. Because.... when I went to the research center the only person there was this cute older lady and I felt totally comfortable having her critique and help me. I guess I fit better with the elderly.

  3. I'm glad that you got help! I am excited to read your paper.

  4. Im confused as to why my experience was so worthless. Crap, maybe it was that I had absolutely to intent in mind.

  5. Getting help is one of the best things you can learn to do in life. So many people love to give help; so many people are trained to give help. I ask for help like crazy in my classes. Sometimes I feel dumb, but the test scores make it worth it. Good job!
