This first writing assignment I found to be enjoyable because it was something that I have done before. My topic was on mental health of college students during the pandemic. It was important to me because I believe that there are many young people struggling with mental health problems and it is often looked over. During the writing process I had a challenging time starting the paper. I found that it was helpful to free write messily and just get all my thoughts and ideas out on paper. Additionally, breaking down the topics I want to discuss in each paragraph made the process a lot smoother. I was able to write about my own experiences which I liked because it made the paper more personable and also therapeutic. I prefer this style of writing assignments more than academic papers because we had more freedom and we got to learn more on topics we care about. Overall, I enjoyed this project and I am looking forward to the next assignment.
