Three Favorite Texts from This Semester

- ... One reason is because it’s a play. I like to read plays because you get everyone’s opinions and how they view different scenarios. Another reason I liked it is because it is so popular. Everyone knows the title Romeo and Juliet so it was nice actually getting to learn about what the fuss is about. It has been around for so many years, and it is still famous. The way Shakespeare is always dragging things on to make you believe that things could still turn out for the better amazes me. When reading the play people still have hope that things will turn out even the outcome is already stated in the Prologue....   [tags: reading, play, characters, tragedy]

My Favorite Hobby As A Doctor And Education

- For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a doctor and education has been the most important part of my life. Why did I choose this career path.

When I was in third grade, my cousin showed me a video of childbirth to gross me out but I thought it was fascinating....   [tags: High school, College, Anatomy, School]
