SOLSC: A Visit: The Conclusion - 22/31

The Slice of Life Story Challenge 
is hosted by the Two Writing Teachers.

A Visit: The Conclusion
     Part 1  -  Part 2  -  Part 3

I read her twelve page research paper many times over.  I thought to myself, "I didn't have to write anything like this until I was in college!"  Overall, I was impressed.  She did it.  She was able to thoroughly defend her thesis with evidence supported from her research.  My fingers are crossed that her teachers agree!

Re: Thank you!

Thank you so much for all your help today. I'm sorry that it was last minute, but you really helped a lot and I greatly appreciate it!  I just finished and it feels great.  

Of course, I wanted to include you.  After all, you're where I got my start :) And I will definitely include you in my future college apps and essays. 

Again, thank you so much for everything! You're the greatest!  :)  You know I will keep in touch, I always do!


  1. And that's the reason we do the things we do for students--the sincere thank-you. That appreciation for someone who went above and beyond to help. You have obviously meant a great deal to this student.

  2. How sweet! It must mean SO much to have her value your opinion.

  3. I love her words "after all, you're where I got my start." Notes like this mean so much. Sniff! :)

  4. It's quite a special gift you were given, & you helped her one more time! She has a mentor in you, maybe for a long, long time. I really liked these installments, anticipating what was going to happen next.

solsc: comments matter 18/31

March Slice of Life Story Challenge  hosted  at the  Two Writing Teachers Join us for a month of writing! After two days of writing struggles, I was slowing moving out of the writer's block quicksand that was sucking me into that stuck world of "I don't wanna write." I wrote a different post for today.  I was ready to press on with this challenge.  I did not fear the orange publish button.  I was going to just write. Then throughout the evening, I read the comments from my slice from yesterday: struggle . I had tears in my eyes.  I had goosebumps reading the comments other slicers, writers, teachers, mothers, friends wrote for little ole me and my writing struggles. Thank you for sharing in my
