With the increasing number of obligations from main core subjects I have found it very difficult to find the time and effort to read throughout this first semester. This has not stopped me, however, and I have been successful into maintaining a daily amount of time purely dedicated to reading. It has helped me discover a wealth of knowledge, in terms of writing, and has sparked an even greater passion to devote more time into discovering the world of literature. At this point in the semester I am at a comfortable level of reading and will be working to read more higher level content as this semester finishes.
