    • 2 Pages

    I walk through the doors to the fourth building, aiming towards the bathroom but instead, continue to the hallway next to the library and sit across and diagonal from this girl who always makes me curious with the way she looks, the way she acts. Everyday I see her, sitting alone. It’s only seven thirteen and I know her friends will join her soon; I stay sitting across from her. Everyday, my curiosity grows. I see her all day and I know next to nothing about her. She sits alone most of the time,

    1. One of the ways that I try to ease apprehension in students, is by relating to them as a writer. I am not ashamed to say that I have a pile of over 50 rejections from magazines; I don’t let them mock me, but push me to keep trying. I am not ashamed to say that I revise 20 or more times before I’m happy with something, that I still have words I regularly misspell, or that I still get intimidated when a new person is reviewing my work. Talking about some of these things (in moderation), reminds

    Everyday Use

    • 2 Pages

    The saying never judge a book by its cover is brought to mind when I read this story. "Everyday Use" has three main characters; Mama, Maggie, and Dee. The only things we know about these characters are through Mama's eyes. Mama is telling the story, so everything we read is from what she says. It is hard for us to know the true personalities of the characters because we learn of them through one characters point of view. It is also easy to misunderstand the characters because of the information

    thought the play was about. This exercise I found very helpful because when reading the play in class I didn’t pick up on some of the main aspects of the play and was therefore at a loss, but due to this exercise I now knew everything that was going on in “The Visit” and could work and interact far easier. In this workshop we then were asked to pick a prominent member of the town in “The Visit” for example the policeman, doctor or pastor. We were then instructed to walk around the room in character

    day. It isn’t as if I intended it to be this way. It is my choice, after all, to sit here day in, day out. I can’t bear to leave the other boy’s side. Not after this. This is all my doing. Staying here is the only way I can even begin to put things right. * * * * “O-Oliver,” he stuttered. Something was bothering him lately.

    unconsciously blind to and not appreciative of. Seeing explores the idea of what it means to truly see things in this world. Annie Dillard’s main point is that we should view the world with less of a meddling eye, so that we are able to capture things that would otherwise go unnoticed.

From one end, what we see right away tends to be the

    In this story, it is as if the individual is a part of the conversation, but not directly spoken to. It is clear in the language used too that it is country slang and in a way that one is not educated pronounce words clearly.
