Paper Topic:

describe a positive or negative experience that you had in college and how you handled that experience

Negative Experience that Became a Positive Experience

My first year of school , I had a negative experience with another student . For most people , college is when they are able to experience their first adult relationship , yet most people are still making that transition from child to adult and are not able to handle all the responsibility that it brings . For me , it was not a relationship that brought problems , but the lack of a relationship that created those problems .

He decided to sit next to me like he always did , and by this time we were both good friends , but there was still something that bothered me about him .
