Specifically this essay will look at a couple of pages that include her most interesting panels in the whole book. I compare the panels to others and discuss the feelings I have toward her choice of drawings and dialogue. By looking closely at and analyzing her artwork, I will show how Bechdel arouses curiosity with only two pages. First I will discuss a few panels on pages 220 and 221 that include Alison talking to her father after she has returned from college.
In this paper, I will be reflecting on my first year as an Occupational therapy student at the University of The Witwatersrand. While reflecting, I have come to realise that my viewpoint and understanding of the profession of Occupational Therapy and the importance of occupation to Occupational Therapy have developed substantially throughout this year. In my opinion, my previous understanding of OT and occupations in OT was very basic and shallow compared to what I understand of this topic currently. This growth in understanding came about due to many learning events such as lectures, fieldwork and activities, however, two of the most significant learning events I have personally experienced this year have had a major impact on my learning experience. These two learning events, which are prominent events within my first year of studying OT, include the OT June exam and making a chair in APT (Appropriate Paper-based Technology) for a child with Cerebal Paulsy and Microcephaly.

I wanted to start a club about cups. Ever since I was 7 years old I wanted to start a club for cupstacking and teach others this wonderful skill. Cupstacking involved stacking cups in sequences while also trying to get the fastest time possible. It started in the summer of 2015 and I taught summer camp children cupstacking just for fun. Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor.

I am very excited to analyze and review my close friend, Lizzy Klingens art piece, “Sheets”. I was able to see it in the Worth Ryder Gallery at UC Berkeley, it was a part of the Fall 2015 Honors Studio Exhibition held last week.

Klingen is interested in her human form and how her perceptions of her self determine and shape her. This was another reason I chose Klingen, we live in the age of “selfies” but selfies are more than just a cute picture of yourself, it is a way to explore yourself and your body.
