my research question

my topic is should it be legal to sell your organs. i think it would be a very interesting topic that isn't thought of regularly. nobody really thinks of organ donations or organ transplants unless they're personally effected by it. but i believe that organs should be legal to sell. i wanted to choose a topic that was interesting and could catch anybody's attention. i need to learn about the stats that go with organ donations and how many people are actually on the list. also i need to find out if other countries have implemented this law where organs could be sold and see if it tuned out okay or if its spiraling out of control. also information on my main key points like how it would effect the poor and the rich and whatnot. it would be nice to get the opinions of doctors and people in the medical field, but it needs to come from people who have researched this topic. it not a very popular topic so im not really sure who i will be finding as an expert on it. But it will be interesting to see who they are and what they do for a living.

thoughts on peer revision

Like I stated in my last blog on the revision process for my writing project 1, I never really did throughout revisions on peoples’ papers, so with this project it was nice to get solid feedback on my paper. I learned a lot from the revision feedback that I had received from my peers. A lot of things that they didn’t understand, and they pointed out to me, helped me write and revise my paper so it could easily be understood by anybody. Also because one of my peers wrote a paper on the wage gap prior to this class, she was able to give me some insight on the topic that I didn’t know. She was gave my tips on how to write the paper and how to set it up to make it the best it could be. I gained a whole part of my paper from that talk, I added the history part to my paper because I was told it could enhance my final paper. I like the revising process because it gets vital feedback that you might not get anywhere else if you don’t have anybody at home to read your paper for you. 

experience composing this paper and compares your original design plan

The main point to my paper is still the main point to my design plan. I made the design plan based around the facts of how woman are being discriminated against in today’s society and I used all those very informative facts in my final paper. This allows the reader to get a good understanding on the topic because there is a lot of information in the paper. One thing that I did add into my paper that wasn’t in my design plan is the history of the wage gap. I wrote in my paper on how it started in the beginning of World War II to give the reader more of a foundation on the topic. I thought that it was missing a beginning so that is why I added that into my paper, I believe that it make it a better paper overall. The audience stayed the same, it is mainly for people who have a job, specifically women. Based on all the sources that I use in my paper, the logos portion of the design plan doesn’t add up because I have many more facts to back up my topic. I think I did accomplish everything that I set out to do because it is a very well informed and very well written paper. It’s on a topic that many people aren’t fully informed about and after reading it, they can form an opinion on it. My main goal was to just inform people and I think I achieved that goal.

well i just officially voted in my first election. it was fun! its crazy how many positions that only one person was running for. it seems like it would be easy to run for something, seems like there are no other candidates who wants to be it. I'm surprised that they still used paper ballots, i would think that everybody would use machines because it would be easier to count and take account for everyone. but it wasn't bad at all, its like taking a test, all you do is fill in the bubbles. unfortunately there was a lot of people that i voted for who i don't even know what their views are. i didn't know there was so many different positions that are being ran for. i thought there was only couple, not like 10. but I'm glad i went, i want to be apart of society and have a say on who gets to run this amazing country. i think everyone should consider voting, even if they don't have the same exact views as one of the candidates, if they don't vote they lose their voice and can't get mad with how our government is being ran, they lost that privilege.

so were about halfway through the last semester of the year and i couldn't be more thrilled. I'm so tired of being stressed out every day because of all my classes and having work on top of that. the good part about school right now is that one of my classes is almost over because it was a half a semester class. i have the option to take the final which would be on money but I'm not sure if I'm going to or not. if i do, and get a better grade than one of my last tests, then it replaces it. but if i get a worse grade than the others, then that test drops. so there no bad side to taking the test besides having to wake up an hour earlier and going to Lewis earlier. but i haven't decided if I'm going to take it or not. but nothing gets me more excited than the thought of summer break coming up, i cannot wait! hopefully these next month and a half fly by and finals go good so i can start my break out on a good note!
