Studying Observation and Analysis

Writing an Autoethnography gave me a chance to learn how I write my essay without getting distracted. I also learned that while writing essays or any other writing assignments, I usually procrastinate and put it off until the last minute. As I writer, I realized that writing should not be forced upon and instead it should be encouraged. While doing this assignment, I learned that I am a good writer but I just have to avoid distractions and write what my heart desires. Mainly, the purpose of this assignment is to have students spend one hour on writing and then evaluating themselves in the end on how they spend this one hour, whether they are focusing or feeling distracted. I believe this writing assignment can make students learn a lot more about them because after evaluating, we can judge ourselves on what made us to focus and what kept us distracted.  
At 2:14 p.m. on February 02, 2010, I was sitting in my living room with my laptop to spend one hour on writing an essay and then evaluating myself in the end. Before I started to write, I closed all of my tabs that were already open such as Yahoo mail and Facebook. I also logged out of my instant messenger so that people cannot message me. Then, I opened Microsoft word and began to write my essay. At first, I had no topic in my mind and I just stared at the blank screen and thought about on what topic I should write my essay.
Its 2:17 p.m. and I am writing my introduction paragraph while taking a sip of hot tea. Suddenly, I hear rain and I find myself staring out the window. I begin to ponder about other things not related to the essay but I have to keep control of myself and not get distracted. As I was finishing up my paragraph, I heard the phone ringing and my mom picks it up. It’s her friend calling her and they are talking about their upcoming weekend plans. In order to avoid any further distraction, I try not to listen to her phone conversation and I quickly take my laptop to my room.
