I was really excited to get children’s books that I had in my bookshelf that I don’t read anymore, and I thought someone else could enough these books. I was really excited and motivated for the walk by seeing all my classmates bring bags of books. I also enjoyed doing bookmarks for the books. I really like doing crafts it is therapeutic for me, I thought writing inspiration quotes on
The Leap Frog books read us the story and taught us the words at the same time. It made learning to read easier and fun at the same time. In fourth grade, we would always visit the library to check out books. The books I checked out were mostly nonfiction books relating to cars because I liked cars. Learning about cars helped me become a better reader during my childhood years.
I was an avid reader by that time, and preferred books over people to keep me company. My parents encouraged my interest by taking me to the library every week and helping me pick books to read. The gradual exposure to the world of literature eventually lead me to write my own stories. One of my first experiences was a writer was producing my own interpretation of Cinderella after reading Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, who put an interesting twist on the classic tale. Finding the concept intriguing, I set out to do the same.
When someone enters a library there are two things they can be sure to expect. The first being the fact that when they leave they will be taking with them more knowledge than the came in with. The second is that no matter what library they come across it is publicly known that you remain as quiet as possible. This was all true for Bonnie Brown as she spent time working in her high school library on December 6, 1978. One of the tasks she was entitled to complete was filing the new magazines onto the shelves, something she had done time and time again, but this time things were different.
They no longer feel self conscious because their parents could not afford to buy them new clothes so they have to wear the same limited wardrobe each week. Instead they can come in and pick out a large quantity of outfits and every Tuesday and Thursday. This organization is such a blessing for many students and I would not trade my experience there for anything in the world. I also volunteer at my school library form time to time. I have always adored reading.
During my local trip to Cypress Hills library, On February 16, 2016, at 1pm, I entered the library to return some of my overdue books and decided that I would conducted my observation at this located due to the fact that it was extremely packed with parents and their children. I decided that today would be a perfect day to conduct my assignment because all the children were on vacation. The tables were filled of children and their parents. I noticed some of the parents browsing the aisle in the library looking at books. The wait to get on the computer was about 45 minutes and as I looked over to that section three young children were on the computers and three adults sat on the opposite side on the computer as well.
I felt less clingy, less irritated and much more self-reliant. Reading kept me busy so I didn’t have time to indulge in self-pity. More importantly, I could interact with the characters from great books and absorb strength, wit and courage from the best authors of all time. There was also an unexpected twist in my reading journey. By bringing my book collection to school and exchange with my new classmates, I established long lasting friendship with those who shared the same passion for reading.
My professor has provided sufficient time in class and at home which has allowed me to put a lot of thought into writing my papers. During the time in class she let us work on our papers, I gave myself a two hour window on my essays to see how much I could type. This helped me learn to focus on paper content and forget about the other distractions in my life. I found that while practicing this, I could formulate my ideas more effectively and, in turn, strengthen my writing. These practices turned into good habits; and now when I am at home, I can use my time wisely and type thoughtful papers while still not taking all the time in the
Ending a semester usually proves to be a happy event, however, I wrote my entire paper for module four before realizing I selected a topic in the wrong convention. This is just a sign, that I need to continue forcing myself to take English classes. All in all, this was the most challenging college course I have completed by far. Thankfully though, the difficulty I had with this class has highlighted many weak areas I will need to focus on in the future. This class forced me to endure long nights, reading instructions and writing, but in the end, every struggle to improve knowledge is always worth it.
The bible verse, "Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest," from the book of Matthew, chapter 11, verse 28, explains to go reach out to someone if you need help with anything. Moving on, I got into movies that were made from books and they seemed to help me picture the book better. For example, in my junior Honor's English class, we watched the Great Gatsby and it provided specific imagery in the book, which helped me understand it better. Mrs. Jenkins, my English teacher, was one of the reasons I started to read again and journal more often. Something she said had stayed into my mind and it turned around for
