Foundation for Futures My shirt is clearly getting wet from all my sweat, yes I am nervous. This EWRT 211 class is my first class as a college student and is also the first class I took in U.S. I was quite surprised as how my first class are not as hard as I had prepared. Ms. Wilson, my professor was late for more than half an hour on that day. This gave me quite a bad impression of her, while on the other hand this much spare time means that I am allowed to get to know my classmates better. It has always been fun getting to know people from other country. Since I was placed in EWRT 211, means that I need to work hard, be serious, correct my mistakes and learn what I had not learned to climb my way up. When Ms. Wilson finally arrived, yet again I was surprised this time, by her appearance. She is quite an elder, she might even be older than my grandmother.

There are a lot of things that different when I write an essay before and after attending Ms. Wilson class. The most outstanding differences is how I learn to write thesis statement. It has been normal for me to write essay but to write thesis statement is a completely new for me. I understand that the ability to write good thesis would make it easier for me for future when I am about to transfer to UC or to apply for a job. This class has been my foundation that would build my career and future and by understanding this, I would say that I am prepared for the next challenge and to be able to grow more. I would pass EWRT 211 and take English 1A class next quarter which is winter quarter 2014. I will not spend another quarter learning things I have learned, it would be waste of time and money. The reason I would be able to handle English 1A is that I have learned about PIE. The three important keys of writing a well organized essay known as Point, Information, Explanation. I understand that when I focus on these three the reader
