As i began my research paper, i was afraid that i was going to struggle.

November 12, 2009, 9:40 pm - [1]

I gathered all of my research and put together an outline for my paper.

November 12, 2009, 9:41 pm - [2]

As i started my paper i started to gain some more confidence and it started to flow pretty well.

November 12, 2009, 9:45 pm - [3]

The topic for my research paper is Social Networking and its effect on teenagers.

November 12, 2009, 9:46 pm - [4]

I proceeded to use a lot of information into my paper and felt like i had a strong introduction.

November 12, 2009, 9:47 pm - [5]

My content discussed in the paper was specified for teenagers.

November 12, 2009, 9:47 pm - [6]

I talked about the dangers of social networking, including cyberbullying and sexual predators.

November 12, 2009, 9:54 pm - [7]

I also discussed dangers of teens becoming obsessive and glued to Facebook and other social media.

November 12, 2009, 9:57 pm - [8]

In my research I included social network sites such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Bebo, and Freindster.

November 12, 2009, 9:58 pm - [9]

Next i discussed how social networking can create a distraction for many teenagers.

November 12, 2009, 9:58 pm - [10]

I took a few minutes to interview some fellow college students who happend to be on Facebook in the computer lab.

November 12, 2009, 9:59 pm - [11]

They gave me some pretty insightful answers, in which helped me as i included some of their answers into my paper.

November 12, 2009, 9:59 pm - [12]

I also brought up and discussed how teenagers use a different lingo on the internet.

November 12, 2009, 10:00 pm - [13]

This lingo, or different language used online, creates trouble for students in the classroom.

November 12, 2009, 10:01 pm - [14]

After researching and involving these main points into my paper,i tried to perfect the stuff in between.

November 12, 2009, 10:03 pm - [15]

I made sure that i had plenty of research to back up my points.

November 12, 2009, 10:05 pm - [16]

After writing all of my paper and citing all of my sources i felt that it was a good paper.

November 12, 2009, 10:05 pm - [17]

The paper took about two days, and after editing it a few times,i found several mistakes.

November 12, 2009, 10:06 pm - [18]

I noticed that i had went somewhat out of order with my research so i had to fix that.

November 12, 2009, 10:07 pm - [19]

I had to make some minor changes throughout my paper, but nothing too major.

November 12, 2009, 10:43 pm - [20]

Reflecting back on my finished paper, i realized how much time it took.

November 12, 2009, 10:44 pm - [21]

Writing a solid research paper takes up a lot of time. I spent hours throughout the school day and at night working on it.

November 12, 2009, 10:44 pm - [22]

The difficult task was trying to finsih the paper, while working on another research paper and other projects, along with work and practice.

November 12, 2009, 10:45 pm - [23]

Although it was difficult to work around this schedule, i got the paper done and feel confident in it.

November 12, 2009, 10:47 pm - [24]

I also felt that the content in my paper was very accurate and informative for the reader.

November 12, 2009, 10:49 pm - [25]

I felt that it would be very helpful for someone who has never involved themself in social media, and would be able to avoid it.

November 12, 2009, 10:49 pm - [26]

I chose to take the stance that social media is not necessary for teenagers.

November 12, 2009, 10:51 pm - [27]

Teenagers face too many dangers online. Especially younger teenagers, who are vulnerable to sexual predators.

November 12, 2009, 10:51 pm - [28]

I also felt that they didn't need to be on these sites because of how it is distracting.

November 12, 2009, 10:52 pm - [29]

Along with those main points, i went on to discuss several other points, and made sure to give specific details and support.

November 12, 2009, 10:53 pm - [30]

After all of my research, and completing the paper, it made me feel even stronger on my opinion.

November 12, 2009, 10:53 pm - [31]

I felt like i could find plenty of appropriate research without trouble.

November 12, 2009, 10:55 pm - [32]

All of the research used in my paper was professional, as opposed to lots of blogs and other sites about networking.

November 12, 2009, 10:57 pm - [33]

I also thought that my topic was good to talk about just because it was easy for me to understand the topic.

November 12, 2009, 10:58 pm - [34]

Being personally involved with social networking helped me to prove a point.

November 12, 2009, 10:59 pm - [35]

It also helped me to realize things that i had not known about social networking before.

November 12, 2009, 10:59 pm - [36]

It was good to have my own experiences already, and i was able to interview others who frequently use social networks.

November 12, 2009, 10:59 pm - [37]

The students i interviewed helped my paper out with their answers that were more than sufficient and very informative.

November 12, 2009, 11:00 pm - [38]

With everything complete, i feel like i did good overall.

November 12, 2009, 11:01 pm - [39]

I will go through my paper a few more times, and also have others review and edit with me.

November 12, 2009, 11:01 pm - [40]

After some minor touch up points, i feel my paper will be good to go, and i can work on my presentation.
