Another thing I felt I could get better at would be detailing without flying off topic and losing that main purpose for the audience. The detailing could use some work (like everything else), but it is not too bad, at least to me. I could be more specific in certain cases such as, “To me, my older brother was my biggest influence when it came to my reading and writing.” (Sheffield, Eric Major Assignment #1, 2017) where I could have elaborated more, or just used a better sentence in general. But in that first paragraph, what I attempted to get across to my readers was, how important that memory was to me and how it impacted my literacy. Then I explained that memory along with some background information to help the audience understand it a little more.
In addition, a prince that strays from generosity will be regarded as a miser. While stinginess might lead to shame, generosity will lead to contempt. Therefore, a prince should avoid being benevolent and, instead, treat his subjects with a reluctance to assist. As a parsimonious leader, a prince will have plenty of money for defending his state and embarking on tasks that will not burden his people. He will be perceived as generous to those he does not take from, the majority, and perceived as miserly to he does not take from, the few.
It starts with him concluding that suffering must be the purpose of human life, because there is evidently too much of it in the world for this not to be the case. According to him, happiness is just the absence of pain, which is why our expectations of it are usually too high. And when we find a brief respite from pain, we are thrown into another state of suffering – boredom. Yet, Schopenhauer views misery as necessary, since if all our desires were instantly fulfilled, we would lose our sanity due to lack of purpose. This is why the philosopher believes that non-existence is preferable.
In his work, Machiavelli asked the now famous question of "whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? It may be answered that one should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved, when, of the two, either must be dispensed with" (Machiavelli 409). He proposed in his writing that if all men were good, there would be no need for these tactics, but since this is not the case, violence and fear is a necessary evil. This comes back to the main synopsis of Machiavelli 's work that is the ends justify the means. A ruler may want to be favorable among his subjects and be considered a good ruler, but at maintaining power and peace in the kingdom is top priority.
He telling the audience that bad things in life are going to happen to you and there is nothing you can do besides get over it or fight for what you want, but you are going to have to make that decision on your own. It also hints that you shouldn't just give up just because something bad happens you have to just never give up and move along with your life. The thought about your future ahead of you is different for everyone. Some people have it all planed out and others just pay it by ear, but
I prefer to sign with my classmates, but when they talk to me speaking is faster for me to respond rather than writing my response or signing it. It is difficult to stop because English was my first language and I am so used to using it in every other class. Breaking the habit of talking is possible, but it is a challenge because I am not as used to signing as I am speaking. By choosing to sign more instead of talking you show improvement in ASL because you can naturally and instinctively respond to others in ASL
Than have their life cut short in a moments notice. It is not depressing to age because aging just shouldn’t be depressing, aging is something people should be excited about, and aging shouldn’t be feared. Aging shouldn’t be a depressing thing to think about. People are incapable of controlling on how anyone will age, on what day they age; how they look when one ages. There are most depressing things in life than aging like, how some people’s life is cut short because of someone else’s actions, the choices they make in their life; the way they behave when dangerous events occur.

Sacrificing time, safety, life, and many more things for the sake of something bigger than one person, such as morals and others. Sacrifice I believe is the epitome of heroes, the defining feature of the heroic minority. But sacrifice is an easy word to say but hard to put into action, because sacrifice is hard to achieve in a world where prioritizing yourself is always the most important thing. I'm not saying people are extremely selfish but we aren't very selfless. Altogether sacrifice is something I'm sure all heroes share, but is something which separates heroes from average
Before I needed help but now I need a little help. I’m getting better at analyzing a character in the text. With learning comes good or better grades, in my case this was true. I get better grades when I have to write a paper on analyzing a character from the text. When I had to write on a paper I got a low 90 on the paper, which is better than what my grade was previously.
