1.Things aren't working out as I expected.
2.Things aren't working out as expected. My question is this, are #1 and #2 natural?
Re: ... as expected/... as I expected.
As an NES but not a teacher, both would sound natural, to me, but there's a possible slight difference in nuances.
To me, 1 refers to what I would expect, whereas 2 could refer to what anyone, or at least most people, would expect.
