Language Arts: 2,520 Hours 13 years on this Earth. 4,745 days. 678 weeks. 6832800 minutes. Within that time, I have spent 6 hours in school for 180 days every year since I was 5--7,560 hours in school. From the time my homework was coloring the pages of an art book, to today, where my homework is solving 30 pages of linear equations, Language Arts has been relevant. In this learning institution we call school, approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes is spent teaching students like me reading and writing. That is 2,520 hours out of my total 113,880 on the face of our solar system spent on this single subject. Language Arts will always be a key element in my life. This subject that we praise is teaching us speech, reading, and writing. And of course,…show more content…
Although Language Arts may not be my best subject, I really do enjoy writing narratives. Because I am an imaginative and creative individual, creating a plot and characters is something that comes easily to me. With this, usually while writing any type of passage, whether informational or not, I do not need to plan out what I am going to write. When an idea pops into my head, I want to start plotting that idea on a Google doc, not brainstorm and break it down! In my mind, planning out writing pieces is a waste of time. Yep.

While I jot things down, millions of thoughts are going through my head. Although this may seem like a bad thing, this allows me to grab the most interesting of those thoughts and put them into my…show more content…
Actually, it applies to almost everything you do! When presented with the word illiterate, you think of a person with the inability to read. Of course, then this would lead you to believe the word ‘literate’ is the exact opposite. Although this is true, this is not quite what the two words’ definitions are. According to Google, the word ‘literate’ means having or showing education or knowledge, typically in a specified area. To put it simply, being ‘literate’ at something is just being good, knowledgeable, or gifted at a certain task/topic/activity. Personally, I am literate at all types of art. Writing, design, painting, drawing, architecture, and music are all things that I know like the back of my hand. Coincidentally, all of these things strictly correlate with my Language Arts literacy, which helps me grow and prosper in the subject. For example, I play 4 instruments: Bass Clarinet, Clarinet, Trombone, and Piano. As we all know, to play an instrument, you must quickly read the notes on the music sheets and remember how to play every single one. To learn the notes, I would study the finger charts and names of each one in order to train my mind. Doing such things exercises my mind and trains my brain to absorb information quickly and efficiently. Not only this, but music also helps me with my writing strengths. When writing music,
