assignment #13

1.I liked writing my personal essay and i thought it was way easier than writing the play. if i was told to write it again as in with the same experience i wrote my personal essay then yeah I would tackle it again. Its a little easier than writing fiction too, because you don't have to make it up as you go like its done in fiction. The thing that surprised me the most is I actually wanted to write it and share my experience with other people. And I didn't have to think about it while I was writing.

2. I like to read a lot. when you are reading you learn a lot of things from just reading one single book. Be it how to spell a word, how to pronounce it or new things that you had no idea existed. so for writers it important because they like to write and as they write they have to make things up as they go so reading other things that 's different from what they wrote it might help them in the long run.

3.-my favorite writing peace is a story I wrote about from looking at a picture. it was my favorite because I had to make up a whole story from this one picture that had only a flower in it and then I got a good grade on it. I was very creative with that piece.
-Drama. Because I didn't know anything about it and I learned a lot.
-the play. it was challenging because I had to keep reminding myself that I was writing a play not a story that was really hard to do because it was for an audience not readers.
-No everything I wrote this semester I cared for because they are something I created.
-creating and sharing what you created.

1. What is one principle that guides you in life? This may be something you are consciously aware of as a force in your life, or it could be something unintentional. Some examples of guiding principles could be "I value education," "I value family above everything else," or "I won't be happy without money." There is no condemnation for your guiding principle. State your principle, then explain how it shapes your life. Also talk about why that is a guiding principle and why it is important to you.

My most valued principle in life is my family. Family is important to me because they always support you no matter what and they are always there, they also accept you with all your faults. My family is like the best thing and the one true thing that's stable in my life. I wouldn't trade them for anything or anyone else. Sure, they have their faults and annoy me big time but would I be the person I am without their help and nagging? i really doubt it.

2.What is one news event from the past year or so that has had some sort of impact on you, changed the way you viewed the world, or made you think. Explain what the event was and take us through the process of how it changed you.

Globalwarming I don't think its anything that happened in the past year but its an issue that had people nervous, but I think the weather changes are something that affect everyone. Global warming is a major problem and the humans aren't helping with all the pollution.


3. What is one thing you hope to accomplish in 2008? Talk about why it is so important to you, as well as how you want to accomplish it. Write at least 100 words about it. If you can't say anything more about what you want to accomplish, write about other things to help you write more.

Something I would like to accomplish this year will be live life and have lots of fun since its the last year of high school for me. in the past three years I was working hard to get on the same level with my peers because when I was in middle school I skipped a the eighth grade and it was my first time to go to school in the US. I took the BST test as the knowledge test and passed with alot more points than required and instead of putting me in the eighth grade like they planned to I went to the nineth grade and it was really hard adjusting but after alot of hard work I pulled it off. So, this year its all about fun and chillin' some.

assignment #11

As I was writing my play the hardest thing that I found frustrating was that i had to keep in my mind that I was writing a play not a story. that was really hard. the thing that kept reminding me that it was a play and not a story was the names on the margin and the stage directions. I found out that I can actually write a play and I used old fashioned words that i remembered from the previous plays I read. Once I started writing my play it was easy to make up the words, I didn't even have a story to go with my play I rather found it fun writing the play once i trained my mind to write a play and not a story. I didn't find anything unpleasant other than having to skip every other line as you write, other than that it went smoothly. I would be interested in writing screenplays one day if i get the time and the mind to do it and I don't think I would be amazing at it but I would like to try it. I'm more the novel writer type.

If I ever write a personal story it would be about my childhood and what I encountered in Africa. Africa is very different from the states. its like two different worlds. and when I came here everything changed. The people, school, the whole enviroment and it took me a while to get used to the fact that this will be my home for a long time. It changed for the better though, I got the opportunity to get good education and to meet new people.
This the editted version of my personal story. I would write my personal story based o a true experience not a fiction version of my life.

If I was to give a ten year old advice in growing it will be life is hard but never take it too seriously, have fun live a little, laugh alot, don't ever give up on anything if you set your mind to it. I would never give advice on my experiences because people are different and they might not even encounter what i did. I would give advice on their thoughts and their peers and the times they live in and defenitely some advice on schools. the advice on school will be what to expect and the different ways to excell in classes and how the easiest way to study for tests are. the advice on their thoughts would not be to dictate it but to be careful and be sure its what they want to think and stuff like that on what they do that's it because I know how my dad tells me what he thinks I should do and its annoying. The advice on their peers will be choose your friends and not waht they look like and what they wear but ehat is inside them and their personality. that's the advice my mom gave me when I was a kid.

Assignment #10

Theme is what makes whatever you write very interesting without a theme I don't think its worth much. Once i tried to write a story and I didn't know theme was required in a story so i started my story without an anchor which is what a theme is to a story and I showed it to my sophomore year english teacher to read. After he read it he asked what my story was about and I was confused because i thought I gave him the story to read and since he read it he knew what it was about. And then he told me I needed a theme for the story and I had to rewrite the story after I came up with a theme. Then I understood that a theme was very important in whatever you write. A good Literature, maybe needs to express an idea but, maybe not. But then if it has to last a long time then I think it needs to represent an Idea of what it actually is this is where the quote "read between the lines" comes in.

I think they last that long because people like them as well as they express a very strong idea of the past and nobody wants to give up the past. They are very hard pieces of literature that are hard to let go of like the pride and prejudice even to this day that is a very well liked book and they made a movie out of it. The authors from long time have a very different point of view about literature then the modern authors and that is caused by the past and waht kinds of things took place. Even if I write something it will be non-fiction and about my childhood experieance of civil war and that stuff so I don't see that lasting centuries or even years from the time its published.

One-long lasting impact around the world that I would write about will be about animal extinction and the humans role in that matter. Most animals are being wiped out of exsistence and humans are mostly responsible for that. Either be it hunting, chasing them away, skining them or scarin them all that is human caused. I would write about animal extinction even though there might be other authors who have wrote about it annually. I love animals and I hate to see them all gone. The next you know is humans will be in danger of extinction.

assignment #9

1. Something in the world that holds my concern will have to be nature and all the animals that live within the jungle or forest. there are some people who like the forest the way I do and there are the poachers who go to the jungle just to hunt animals. Me, personally i don't like those people at all. I mean I can understand why they do it, its either to get the skin of the animal they killed especially the big cats or to do research on a new species but that doesn't make what they are doing right. I love animals and i think its wrong to do them any harm just because they aren't human.
2. My little brother can be labeled dynamic. He has this never ending energy that most of the time gets him in trouble. He likes to do everything by force, you will know he is somewhere before you even set eyes on him because he is vigorously active.
3. the first book that I read for fun is a walk to remember by Nicholas Sparks, its also a movie. I love reading now that I know there are alot of different books and book genres to choose from.
