In order for me to get to this conversation with writing started I need to set aside all of my intimidation with writing and need for perfections aside just to get something even written down. What gets written down may not be the greatest, but no one really has a life changing conversation with someone that they just met anyways so my first draft of anything does not really have much high expectations. Once I get past that writing is not intimidating and that I am going to have a conversation with whoever might read this it becomes an easier process and outlook. Previously I’ve always thought of writing as something I always dreaded because it would suck the life out of me and usually bring my grade along with it, but as I have gotten older writing has become a part of my life and something I have changed my perspective on completely in a way that I look at it as something friendly, like a chat with a close friend. While I find myself not upset when I am not writing papers in class, if it were not for writing in general I might have to strain myself to not pick up my phone every five minutes just to send a text message or post
Typically, I would go through and just read a piece of writing without taking the time to really look into the meaning/purpose and message. But this project really taught me to not be as oblivious and what to pay attention to. With that, I was able to take address a few learning outcomes; which among these are, Language and the Individual, Language and Social Relations, and Language and Belief. Instantly, I knew that I wanted to incorporate a poem when doing this assignment, but I had no clue or idea what one to pick. I read through tons and tons of poems until I found The Road Not Taken.
The student shows her teacher and her class the value of her writing by not letting Mr. Sedaris devalue it with his criticism. The only person who knows and who can determine the true value of writing is the author. Even though the teacher thought his students’
I need to learn to get use to books that I never imagined me reading because I don’t have a choice but to do it. Also, I would get very lazy to even try to take a glimpse at the text because I’m not use to reading the books the teachers like to read. My last goal is too use context clues. This is not a big deal but I would like to get a little better at it. When I am answering questions about the book, I don’t pay attention to the big clues.
Wilfred Owen uses contrast in this poem to help show the major changes for example “ There was an artist silly for his face, For it was younger than his youth, last year. Now, he is old; his back will never brace” This talks about before the war he would have people wanting his picture. But now no-one wants to see him, he looks old even though he is still young and his back will not support him. Many soldiers lost their limbs in battle and this poem helps people realise the pain the soldiers went through both physical and mental. “Mental Cases” is about the men who went crazy due to the events of World War I. it helps explain how these men looked with the use of half-rhymes, metaphors and similes “ drooping tongues from jaws that slob their relish, Baring teeth that leer like skullls teeth wicked?” This talks about what the men looked like after going crazy.
She seemed illiterate. However, later she realizes her ignorance was really a gift: she finds if she had read the books at an earlier age, she couldn’t have understood 90 percent of their content, and to reread them later would be unlikely. Fortunately, she realizes she can now read, and understand more. In this essay, Schine wants to show us that reading is life-long process. Her life experience is a good example that it is never too late to start reading.
Although I recorded audio of myself and was not able to use video, I know myself well enough to know how the speech would have looked in person. I felt as if my voice was a little tense, but my instructor said that my voice was clear and the delivery was well paced. Neither my instructor nor myself felt as if there were other signs of anxiety in the presentation. I did feel like the pacing of my presentation was great, but this was also one of the things I was working on that required a second and third try. In this class I would like to work on my delivery, but mostly, I would like to stop being so monotonous and be able to use gestures and movements more effectively.

I could only imagine how worried they were when they thought I was doing the same thing as my older siblings. They called me numerous times and I never answered. My friends would text or call me and tell me that my parents showed up at their house looking for me and I just said, “Don’t tell them where I’m at.” I shouldn’t have been selfish; I should’ve just stayed home. My brother wanted the best for me even though we weren’t close. Sam and Shelbi were best friends but they weren’t the best for each
Gregor's search for his identity seems hopeless, but, because he never had an identity to start with. He finds his humanity only at the end, when his sister's playing of her violin reminds him of his love for his family. What we don’t realize is in that someway everyone is alienated.
