I enjoy a good challenge every once in a while. In my case, English class is always a challenge because it is not my best subject. At times, I have the outward appearance that I despise English. To prove my point, I pose the question: Who in their right mind likes to write essays or interpretations? I can understand writing blog entries or writing in a journal every once in a while, but for assignments? Who came up with the idea of essay assignments anyway? And how can I say that I enjoy challenges but despise a challenging English class?

As a faithful Catholic, I do my best and let God handle the rest: We should embrace the challenges we face and use them as opportunities to grow in patience, humility, and faith. I take pleasure in making myself a better person (which, in turn, makes the world a better place) because I know that I am becoming who I was meant to be–the best person I can become. Therefore, I can proudly say that I enjoy English class because I enjoy making myself a better person, challenges give us the ability to better ourselves, and English is challenging to me.

I also like English because I never know what profound sermon Mr. Beeler is going to give.
