I feel that I dealt with the situation correctly because he is the type of person that no one can get along with. This engagement relates to material covered in class because aggressive behavior is behavior expressing personal feelings in an inappropriate way where another person feels violated. He did not convey his feelings to me because he did it in a way that I wasn’t willing to listen to him and his opinion didn’t make any sense at all. I became aggressive when he told me how and what I should do to make my situation better when the advice he was telling me didn’t sound very appealing and I didn’t agree with it. He became aggressive when he realized that I wasn’t listening to any of the information he was telling me.
But never fear my writing got better! In my second draft, “Why can’t I just express myself”, I wrote, “Sometimes when I couldn’t find anything, I would make assumptions. When I did this I was giving false information. I would feel really bad for this, almost “shameful” for not providing my reader with an accurate representation of my feelings of the topic. Anzaldua expressed that she “cannot accept the legitimacy of [herself].
I would be incredibly honored to be admitted to the graduate program for English Literature at Vanderbilt because I’ve always had a passion for learning and teaching. I went into college with the idea that I needed to teach children overseas how to read and so for my first year of school I was unmovably focused on achieving that end; however, within a year’s time I would change my tune and set myself on a slightly different course. I tested out of both the required freshman English courses, so my freshman year I decided to dip my fingers into as many different pots within the Humanities as I could, which is how I ended up taking Existential Literature. I was utterly enraptured by the teaching methodologies Dr. Bringle utilized, she was engaging,
I went on to get more assistance with my third and the final essay as well. My final essay for this class, on the status of our 2016 presidential election, was I think, by far my most advanced work of writing ever. Previously I had always had difficulty reaching minimum page limits because I did not properly know how to explain my ideas. As stated earlier, I would word vomit or add extra fluff to my paper because of this very reason. This final paper was the first time that I feel I have ever fully analyzed the outside information that I have included in an
Not only am I in college now but I plan on earning two degrees. The opportunity to be able to do what I love everyday can only be achieved through education. I want to advance my life and help out others at the same time. I believe people learn just how important education is in different ways. It took me a six year break from college to understand that not only did I need an education to advance further in life but I also craved the learning experience.
Each time I was presented with the task to write in new ways to me, I would take a step back and think to myself for a while. On one occasion, I recall me receiving a low grade on a paper where it was supposed to be in APA style format. Instead, I used the format of what I knew and followed an MLA style format. There was also a time when citing was something crucial in our paper reports. I would not even know the format that would be required to make a bibliography or how to cite in a research paper because I thought papers like these were difficult and complicated to understand me.
Moving and waving it around in front of me was distracting on the video, and I can only imagine it was the same to the audience. While my use of poor transition words like “um” were not as bad as I was expecting, I did use them frequently enough to be noticeable when I viewed the video of myself. I also didn’t make as strong a use of eye contract as I initially thought. Using a stronger vocabulary coupled with a stronger personal presence is really something that I need to continue to work on. I would like to complete a speech without relying on hesitant transitions and looking down.
It was not easy finding evidence to support my ideas but then, I realise that it was better to find evidence and then built my ideas and opinions on those. When I received the mark I was really proud of myself because I did not know I could get such a high mark in the first essay, moreover if we consider that I am not a native English speaker. The feedback was an important component to the understanding where my work was not good. In this essay, I reckon that there were both good and bad things. The good things were relating to how I answered to the main question, the structure, the introduction and the use of multiple sources; moreover, the writing was clear and well referenced.
I’m not validating Michael’s desires but I am respecting him for so boldly announcing them to Frances. I’ve learned in my relationship with my fiancé that communication and honesty are two key factors in a thriving relationship and even though Frances’ feelings were evidently hurt, I believe Michael did what was best for him and his relationship with Frances. So by analyzing the text, and setting aside subjectivity, I believe Michael is more right than Frances and can only hope that if these characters were based on real people, they lived happily ever after.
One idea to take into consideration about the "persuasiveness" of these letters is that Seaver's letter has no goal, whereas Herbert's did. Therefore, one may say that Herbert's was, in fact, more persuasive simply because he was asking for compliance, and Seaver just replied with an elongated "no". I agree with this, but only to a point. I still think Seaver's letter is more convincing because he uses more examples and details to prove himself. He incorporates humor, irony, exaggeration, and more into his response which, in turn, goes on to make his letter the most successful.
