I hated writing it. But they still want my reflections. Plus, I'm not giving a detailed discussion of why I regret it. It could be that I'm a square guy (it is, after all, the only violation on my otherwise nonexistent record) or it could be that I regret my violation because the fine I paid was a hefty one.
I searched the forum before writing this addendum to get an idea of the scope of this sort of thing, and the most relevant thread to the topic at hand is this one:viewtopic.php?f=2&t=48697
The poster who started it wrote the following addendum for his two speeding tickets:
In the fall of 2003, I was ticketed for speeding in ****, Ohio. I pled no contest to the ticket and paid the fine handed down by the court. In the spring of 2005 I was again was ticket for speeding in ****, Ohio. I again pled no contest to the ticket and paid the fine handed down by the court. Furthermore, outside of these two traffic tickets I have had no other negative interactions with the law. I realize that these tickets reflect poorly on me, but I have matured and I have learned from them.
The last sentence of this seemed disingenuous to me, and when writing mine I purposefully stayed away from any declarations of my infraction being a learning experience. Additionally, the above sample seems incomplete to me. If you say that you learned from your experience you must say what it is that you learned from it, and that seems even harder to do if sincerity is your goal.
Given the fact that my reflections on the matter are a requirement, what would you suggest I write?
