I like a generally quiet environment while I work, because I need to concentrate solely on one thing and I find if there is more than one audio distraction I try to listen to everything all at once. I learned I can’t type out notes in class, despite being a fast typist because the information just doesn’t stay with me the same way as it does when I write it down longhand. I appreciate smaller groups, particularly in subjects I feel uncomfortable with like mathematics. I’m a returning student who hasn’t been in a true college setting in 20 years. I don’t remember how to “college” and I don’t even know that I did it right the first time around.
I think the main problem I had was not believing in the thesis I chose and not picking a better one. Since I left this piece unfinished, there was a lot to be improved on it. There was only an introduction, so I did my best to add the remaining parts of it. This included writing support for my thesis and providing sources to do this. This revision was more difficult than the polished revision since I had to basically write an entire essay from the
You must be made all of iron, when you will not let your companions, worn with hard work and wanting sleep, set foot on this land, where if we did, on the seagirt island we could once more make ready a greedy dinner; but you force us to blunder along just as we are through the running night, driven from the island over the misty face of the water,’” (pg. 155-156). Here Eurylochus praises Odysseus of his perseverance and mentions how he is so determined that it is as if his body is made of iron. Penelope also expresses this theme for she lives through those ten years without Odysseus while many others told her to forget about her husband. She did cry, indeed, but the
In the distance, I hear the final bell ringing; I 'm going to be late once again. My legs ache as I climb higher, each step posing as its own challenge. My steps echo through the silent hallways as I head to my locker. I turn the dial on my lock and pause briefly as I recall the last digit of the combination. I knock twice on the door to my math class and then enter.
In fact, she won 't even touch the food until after I spit in it." (Remember: The Alpha dog always eats first!). So there you go: Further proof that some of my more outlandish dog training techniques really work! Even if you may feel
I hate it! I have never been good at spelling, so the editing part takes a toll on me. I often confuse words that may sound similar, such as whether for weather. Punctuation is also not my favorite part of writing. However, I do learn different punctuation when I’m editing because I look up information to help me correct or add punctuation to my writing.
I relate to Odysseus and his obstacles with monsters of my own as I strive to reach my goal of living a successful life. My monsters are getting distracted, laziness and fear. Life is full of distractions. On my journey there will be times where I would rather slack off than do something productive with my time. The Lotus eaters are a symbol of the distractions I will face.
The narrator even states “So I take phosphates or phosphites - whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to “work” until I am well again. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good. But what is one to do? I did write for a while in spite of them; but it does exhaust me a good deal - having to be so sly about it, or else meet with heavy opposition.
In his article “ The Limits Of Authenticity, Ben Yacobi talked about the limits of authenticity and its challenges. He talked about it by giving examples and long old history of philosophers to prove his point. Unfortunately, his over long illustrations fall apart. His essay is not appealing because it does not connect with the audience with its over long and complicated examples. Length of his essay is too long to be focused on the point he is trying to prove with redundant examples.
You just read what’s written on a piece of paper,” is what an uninformed person might say, someone who obviously doesn’t know about my passion for annoying the tired and melancholic with smiling positivity. While expression and humor has not historically been a part of this process, and while ad-libbing has been strictly advised against, I go for it anyway. And why not? The worst possible outcome involves only a stern lecture and an expulsion from the job. Fortunately, there is not much going on this week, which means I have some wiggle room with what I can say.
