the hardest paper for me to write was the critical analysis of the movie we watch. I did not know how to put my thoughts on paper about the movie so that they would flow correctly. when I used the format ts cm cd it became alot easier for me. I am still learning how to paraphrase my thoughts so that they come from me and not directly from the person who wrote it.

It was very hard for me to create my thoughts and put them on paper. I always think about the person who is going to read my thoughts being able to critique me and judge me on my writing. this makes me feel uncomfortable and become withdrawn in critical thinking.

I love the challenges that this class had helped me to overcome. I do not think of myself as a failure and I learn to trust my thoughts on paper. I know that the reader can not judge me because I am entitled to my opinion of how I view things. I need to make sure that when I do my topic sentence and present my concrete details that is allow the reader to understand what I am trying to say instead of creating confusion.

I wish that majority of our prerequesite classes have more teachers like ms. peters. she makes you feel comfortable about understanding and english. ms peters does not judge and gives the person creative ways to understand how to write essay papers.

blog 7.

1. define style. I believe style is creating a perception about one character and likes in terms of material possesions. one person can like driving a beat up car and feel superior. another person can drive a lexus and feel superior. what it boil down to is one's perception.
2. define humor. being able to laugh at something inspite of how you think it should sound. enjoying jokes from others without being super critical.
3. I love to write papers on different articles, but it is very hard to put my words on paper for someone else to critique. I just feel that it is making the person so vulnerable when it allows another person to pass judgements on their thoughts.

when I was writing this informal summary, I learned that I am not a writer. It is not fun for me to sit down at a typewriter and create thoughts that are private to me and put them on a piece of paper for others to read.

I wish I would have take the time to carefully read my paper over and over before turning it in.
I saw alot of typos on the paper and grammatical errors that needed to be corrected before turning the paper in.
I also wish that I would have put more thought into the paper and talked more on the topic of obesity. this issue is really a crisis in America. I should have talked about how so many African American women of all ages are battling with obesity in their families.

I thought my critical analysis was fair on my opinion of the movie. the director lead you into different scenes that were controversial and confusing. Everyone in the town knew each other business.
