My First Week

1: No, not at all. I have access to the internet and a printer at pretty much all times of the day.

2: The best learning experience I had was from last year in Dr Preston's class. He was teaching us remixing and different techniques on learning information. It opened my eyes on how to learn and how to teach others.

3: I guess I'm most excited to see what we cover this year, Last year was such an awesome experience that I know this year will be even better. I would say i'm only concerned about the work load, but I feel like it isn't going to be to much. It will make a difference by opening my eyes and mind to knew things and new ideas to create.

THIS IS ABSURD

Absurd- Something that can not be conceived with rational thought.

Something that I find truly absurd is that humans still separate themselves into social, ethnic, and religious groups. The sad part is i have lost all hope for a day where we all stop being so stuck up and just be one whole race that accepts anyone and everyone for who they are.

Reflection on today's essay

I feel I did pretty good on my essay. I know a lot about the book,but what was a bigger achievement I saw today was that I am getting better at understanding the prompts. More and more I have been able to relate my knowledge of (what ever subject) and put it all together for an essay.

I am one who will take the time to observe my surroundings.
I am interest in developing my thoughts into words and/or creating a story out of them.
I am a little bit of an outlaw.
I am hesitant of the future. 

B.)George Orwell. 



FIVE FUN FACTS !  


1.) His real name is Eric Blair. He chose to use a fake name, for at the time his book 1984 was very controversial and he could have got in a lot of trouble.  

2.) Orwell died of tuberculosis in 1950. 

3.) Orwell's wife, Eileen, died in 1945 while undergoing minor surgery.

4.) Orwell lived on a remote island in the Inner Hebrides, called Jura, for several years.

THE AUTHOR’S CREDO 





B.) This song to me expressed what is George Orwell's drive in life. He did change the world because he got people to think, which is one of the strongest things a person can do. He managed to inspire people to look at what is around them and allow them to see (personally) what they really need to. He saw the problems himself and knowing he could not fix them alone he asked for help from others in a subtle way, through his works.   

C.) "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

Joe college

I thought today was a perfect use of time. Finding a persons path in life is something that must be thought about earlier now a days. I am looking into going to a two year community college and than transferring to a four year.  I want to film and edit videos for events and music, I have already built up a good start for my self too. I am the filmer for Oneway boardshop, I've been working on a big film for them for about a year now and I am now beginning the process of having a premiere show and sell tickets for many to come, and I have been in the news on a couple of accounts.

Here are some of my edits if you want to check them out.

Modern Writing (today)

I feel like writing now compared to five years ago is filled with a lot of slange and different means of expression with your words chosen. Five years ago writing wasn't too much different than how it is today but it definitely has outdated frases that we may not use as much today. I would say yes, even though it has only been five years, what inspires me and what the world has giving me to express myself has changes a lot.   

MY MODERNIST

I have chosen George Orwell, he was an amazing story teller. I had never really harmed much about him( Only His Writing) so I am very interested in knowing about his life and him and him as a person.

Fahrenheit 451 in 3 mintues.

Here is a quick summery of all the things you need to take in mind while reading/understanding this novel.

Click Here

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Well I did some research on why Bradbury used "dover beach" this page was very insightful!

Dover Beach explanation  

in that page this line pretty much sums up why Dover Beach was chosen. "The poem Dover Beach can be compared to Fahrenheit 451 because both pieces of writing talk about themes of true love, fantasy and allover hopelessness." 
 If had to choose a poem for this part in the novel it would "Tryin on cloths" by Shell Silverstein. I relate it to this novel because this poem is about finding peace and becoming one with nature, I feel like saying these kind of ideas to the people in Fahrenheit 451would cause a lot of controversy and thought which is exactly what Montag was trying to do when he was reciting poetry.

TO MODERN OR POSTMODERN

I guess I need to read this more but this is what I have got so far.  Start thinking about this quote 

I got that the writers of today are becoming limited to their full creativity, and that they find it easier and more acceptable to tell about what is wrong with our world and hope that you see the problems and YOU fix them. They're like those kids in class that would always point out a mess in the class room but never cleaned it up. I also felt like he pointed out to the read that there is always some sort of stimulation the brain craves but is inevitably unreachable.

THE TIME OF MY LIFE

I used my time well today. I focused mainly on my upcoming assignments which are requiring a lot of thought, I took a couple notes and jotted down some ideas for my work. Hopefully I'll have a productive upcoming week and be able to present all of my work with a noticeable amount of effort.

THE PEEVED PEDESTRIAN

                             Ray Bradbury wrote this novel as a cry for help. He could for see what would happen if we, the people, didn't take care of our lives and just follow in line with everyone else (just cause it was the right thing to do, at the time.) I feel like he wanted to shed light on a really dark thought that everyone some had pondered about but never really felt like it could happen. Eric Blair or who he is better know as, George Orwell did the same thing with his novel 1984 (MUST READ ! it is an amazing book) his book shocked the system and made everyone realize how much of our own government could control us. 

                             Ray Bradbury's novel is written in such a way that you, the reader, learns as the character develops. He uses a technique call a Buildingsroman, and this technique deals with a person's development or spiritual education. He also involves allusions and syntax in parts of this novel to hint on people of things he finds are important and to show how the character is acting at that very moment.

I'M A POET AND I KNOW IT

(i'm writing this as Clarisse)

Title :   "Inhale the Idea / Exhale a Realization"

Some call it the Devil's lettuce. 
To others it stops the pain. 
With so many methods it almost a fetish. 
But you have to look past the Strain. 

It has hurt some. 
But not in the way you think. 
For a rose is beautiful
until it is besmirched by a stink.

Theme for english 3

Dr. preston said
 Go home and write
Your page tonight. 
From your knowledge of English B
and Label it Theme of English 3.


I thought it wouldn't be possible to say who I am.
knowing the rules, the teachers, and the reputation.
I'm with that crowd that "doesn't give a damn"
and who's minds, unknowingly complex, like constellations.

To tell what I do on Friday and Saturday nights.
Might be the same to shoot myself in the foot.
But everyone in high school knows what happens at parties.
Friends meet, drugs used, laughs shared, and memories made.

At seventeen, my age, you encounter the greatest cases of stress.
So whats the shame in relaxing for the week, letting it out,
and making the best.
The best of every set back, every score, every test that you abhor.
Every morning, the late nights, the work to get things right.
Every bit to never quit, for every day that we fight.
There is the sense of delight.

For at the end of the week, the stress is tackled.
Recovery is partaken.
bodies relaxed.

SPRING POST; MUSIC AS LITERATURE

 Of coarse we can define music as literature ! Music has been around for centuries and most, (if not all) music in the early ages of man, told a story. I would say that what we consider literature is anything that gives us insight or a refreshing remembrance on life experiences, something that relates to life/anything around you, or thoughts.
 In my opinion There is no difference between a poem, rap, song, ect... The only difference is how you hear the story, and to take that thought one step further how it impacts you when heard.

Example: The poem richard cory in three ways. A rap, a song, and spoken aloud. 
if you can tell from each one, you get the same understanding and knowledge of the story but each one is unique in how it is heard

 1.) Richard Cory Rap

 2.) Richard Cory as a sung song

 3.) Richard Cory as spoken poetry
