This last assignment was so easy that I have to think that I did it wrong! It was the easiest out of all of the other essays. Guess we'll see what the damage is soon!

'Fess up: What do you do that's bad for the environment?
 I must admit that I go through 6-10 bottles of water a day! I know I should just drink tap water, but it just doesn't taste right! Also, I usually use paper plates, plastic cups, and plastic dinnerware. I feel bad about it, but at least I'm not using water to wash dishes! I feel that even if you do the common things to conserve, you are still using some type of resource. What's the right balance?

Even the most descriptive instructions aren't descriptive enough! In my opinion, when adding a new location to post homework, aside from the many other places, it would be very helpful if that location was explained. If there is an assignment given and three people submitted it, although many others submitted rough copies, that's probably because they didn't know they were putting it in the wrong location. I guess I'll quit crying over spilled milk, as it is what it is.

Well, I must admit, it takes an AWFUL lot to upset me, but that has definitely been achieved this week! If someone could please tell me where the drop box is, I would greatly appreciate it. I thought my assignment was submitted, but apparently not. When I say "please tell me" I mean step-by-step instructions how to get there. I hate having 10000 different places to look to do one thing. I am doing what I have to in an effort to make it work, but this is absolutely insane and now I have no chance of getting an "A" in this class! And to no one in particular-yet- I say: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

What do you think is the worst job?
I thought about this question, and even the worse job, in my opinion, has it's good side. I think it would have to be a job in public waste. I'm not sure if sewer worker is worse than garbage man, but they are both pretty bad! I'm not sure, but I think the pay is pretty good and I know the workers get benefits,of some sort,  but those jobs take a certain type of person!

I wasn't sure of what I should be posting, but since it is a requirement, I am doing so. I think things are much more effective when they aren't forced. On the other hand, if it wasn't mandatory to do 5 exercises on this thing a week, would anybody? I know I would, but I'm sure there are many more who wouldn't, so it has become the rule. Since there are no length requirements, I think I have fulfilled the posting requirement.

What's your favorite thing to order for takeout (or takeaway)?
Hands down, I absolutely love house fried rice with steamed broccoli and brown sauce. I think I could eat that meal each and everyday for years! I am very picky about where I order it from though.

What was your favorite fairy tale as a child?


As a child, I always liked Cinderella. It felt like me in an abstract way. I always loved her dress and the fact that she had a fairy god-mother that could take her away from anything bad. I really did love her. It made me feel that if you worked hard, no matter what, good things would come your way. As I'm older, I'm not sure how true that is to me anymore.

I'm not sure about all animals, but I do think that dogs feel the emotion we humans call "regret". It's evident when a dog knocks over a plant and they put their heads down and whine. But just as humans, some dogs will knock over a plant on purpose or merely look at it and walk away. Who knows?

After reading chapter 12, I realized that an informative piece of writing requires the type of preparation and execution as stated in chapter one. I think that all writing is based around chapter one, because it is the basic strategies needed to begin any writing assignment. the basic rules apply to chapter nine as well. After reading both chapters 12 and nine, both chapters state that papers should be written in language that is understood by all audiences. If the language is questionable, there should be captions to explain such. Writing instruction manuals, newspaper articles, and magazine entries require a lot of detail about a specific subject. Informative writing may be used to bring attention to a specific topic. Because of this, informative writers often stay objective, as to not push readers away with their own opinions and experiences. In reflective writing, it is based off of personal opinion and past feelings.
