Mississippi is one of the best places to visit, especially if you are a fan of “soul food.” Mississippi is arguably home to some of the country’s best food, and, especially to non- southerners. Mississippi also have some of the country’s most unusual food. Southerners definitely enjoy their traditional fried chicken, fried steak, fried onions, fried green tomatoes, and many more fried foods. Even when there is not fried food, there’s gravy to smother your food. If visitors were to visit Moorhead, Mississippi, home of the best buttery grits and fried chicken served at the local Double Quick every morning, they would fall in love. Don’t like grits or fried chicken? Go by Discount food market and have a deep fried slug burger, which is made up
The book I read was called Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. The book was about a girl named Willowdean Dickson. She’s not exactly “thin” as most people she’s friends with are. She was always comfortable in her own skin, not caring that she was slightly larger than her beautiful, thin, best friend Ellen. That is, until she started working at a fast food place called Harpy’s. At this job, she meets an attractive young man named Bo, whom she of course, starts to like. She’s not surprised at the fact that she likes him, no, she’s surprised by the fact that he likes her back. This starts to make her feel insecure about herself because she starts to question how an attractive young man like him would like a fat girl like her. So Willowdean does something she never thought she would do. She enters the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet beauty pageant along with
Recently, the video ‘Dear Fat People’ by Nicole Arbour has caused a load of controversy and for good reason too.
As a student, I have grown in my skills for academic success by having to write an essay in my Honors English class. We’ve recently finished reading the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and were told to write an essay about one of the given prompts. Before having to write this essay, I was struggling with the type of vocabulary and perspective, which was third-person, I was supposed to use. I had to find the right quotes from the book and explain in detail how they support the prompt, I felt that was the hardest for me. The words “I” or “me” weren’t allowed in the essay, unless they were in quotes. I never wrote anything without writing my thoughts on the subject. Also, the language that is used in the book made it even harder for me to understand what was really going on in the novel, which made the essay harder for me to write. This was the first time writing an essay like this, so it was difficult to me for that reason.
In the book 45 Pounds, Ann Galardi is 16 and just trying to find a way to accept herself. She starts off by not accepting herself, to having an incentive, and by realizing that she is who she is.
On many levels my style of writing has changed, I believe that I have got a lot better in my writing. It’s still very clear that I have a lot of areas that I need to work on. At first, I couldn’t actually believe the grade that I received on my diagnostic essay, that grade gave me hope that I would be able to past this class. Overall, I believe that I have improved or changed in these areas, writing in a style that clearly communicates meaning, builds credibility, and inspires belief or action, developing ideas and synthesize primary and secondary sources within focused academic arguments, including one or more research- based essays, and formulating a thesis and argument appropriate for an academic audience that analyzes literature and/or
Through years of writing and learning how to improve, my style has been molded by not just writing words and facts, but also not write just opinions and two sides. I put my personality into my writing by, adding hints of my own justifications and commentary. Leading me to consider it a persuasive style, (literarydevices.net) writing ideas and facts all together yet getting my point across without specifically stating it. Thinking about it we just read Jon Krakauer, he gives facts and others opinion in multiple chapters but then inputs his own information and feelings towards Chris using persuasion, I like to balance my writing like that as well.
Throughout my whole life, I never took an interest t writing. I would only write whenever I needed to. I never thought about making it into a hobby, or tried to actually express my thoughts into words. Writing is just something that comes easy to me. If I get a subject or person to write about, I can write two pages in ten minutes because I’m able to elaborate on topics well. If only I was as serious about writing like some other people are, I’ll probably be really good at it. I never found an interest into it when I was younger, so that’s why it’s hard for me to be interested now. My writing has changed dramatically over the years whenever I really apply myself to it.
Transition/Link: First, I want to discuss why everyone should attempt to exercise. Exercise can help to increase energy and help maintain or decrease blood pressure levels. Exercising regularly can help you lose weight and keep it off. According to Exercise Makes You Younger”, published in Nursing Update "Heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the world. But following the guidelines and getting at least two hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week can put you at a lower risk for these diseases" (55).
The South Beach Diet has made a huge impact on people trying to lose weight making it a very popular diet. The reason why I chose this diet is because it seemed very interesting that so many people kept talking about it online and many people I know have heard of it. I have also never heard of this diet before, and figured it had something to do with seafood because of its name. Personally being a seafood lover I had to check it out and take the opportunity to learn more about this diet and how it works. It sounded like a good diet from everything I have read about it so far, and it seems to have its pros and cons like every diet does. The special thing about this diet according to Dr. Agatston is, “The secret of only eating carbohydrates and fats that are
According to the Boston Medical Center and the LiveStrong foundation, “approximately 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion on weight-loss products” (LiveStrong) in the attempt to gain their ideal figure. As you’ve probably heard all your life, diets are known for being unhealthy for the consumer, as the dieter typically reverts back to their original weight while developing “several psychological effects, such as stress, anxiety, lower self esteem, depression and irritability” (LiveStrong). However, some diets, even those meant for weight-loss, can actually be advantageous. If the dieter is willing to sacrifice certain foods and stick to their dieting program, they can reduce their “risk of conditions such as type 2 diabetes,
My revision strategy will be to take more detailed notes. To use the strategies we have learned, like building my key points of evidence. I will also start working on my final essay weeks ahead. This will enable me to receive feedback from the writing center to help revise my essay. In conclusion, I will use my feedback to create a well taught out and a more organized picture of my analyzation of Some lessons from the assembly line.
Losing weight has always been a challenge and hurdle and a person who lacks the knowledge and information as what to do to lose weight will go nowhere but no-satisfaction-zone where there will be no hope but regret that there’s nothing to do about losing weight but to pray.
“People who diet gain more weight than those who skip the diet route altogether (Dr. Axe.)” One of the main arguments against restricted dieting would be that after the
The past four years of my life hold both my highest of highs and my lowest of lows. High school can be a very awkward time period in a person’s life. Four years ago, I made the intimidating switch from St. Mary’s School to Algoma High School. There were certain aspects of high school which made me nervous, but academics was not one of them. I learned how to be a responsible student in my earlier years, and school had always come relatively easy to me. As high school went on, the workload grew, but I also grew, so I was perfectly capable of keeping up with the work. This type of growth came rather easy to me. It was important for me to have one thing I could be confident with through all of the drama and chaos in my life.
