Song of Myself

My initial reaction to the work was confusion. I knew he was talking about grass and himself but he was using some weird symbols that I didn’t automatically make connections to. This is why I don’t like analyzing poetry. My initial thoughts on our sections was that this man loves grass and dead people. In…

Civil Disobedience

Perhaps government would be better if it wasn’t as restrictive. If government governed less, I really don’t know how people would act. What would that even entail? Less enforcement? Less laws? Less punishment?… Maybe they would act better if they weren’t as controlled by the government and wouldn’t feel the need to rebel. But maybe…

A Transcending Today

Transcendentalism sure is something… This stuff is really reminding of my psychology class and I’m tired. Thoreau and Emerson have some very similar ideas and views in these excerpt. Both of these excerpts include nature and realizing the importance of what the Earth is for. They both think nature should be incorporated into your life…

Debate

My opinions has not really changed over the course of the unit.  If anything, I like debating even less than I did before. I avoid confrontation like the plague, I despise fighting and think it doesn’t solve anything. Neither side changes their opinion on the issue so whats the point of arguing about it? Arguing…

debate 😒😣😭🤢

My debate topic is abortion. Woo! (sarcasm) For this I am pro-abortion, which is my position on this issue anyway. I’ll be honest, I’m tired of this debate. We’ve been debating this issue since 8th grade and I’m over it. I already know everyone’s thoughts on it so what’s the point of debating? Anyway, I…

Virtues Blog

So, I failed. I kinda tried to follow Franklin’s virtues but not too strictly, if Benjamin Franklin couldn’t follow his own virtues I shouldn’t have to either… The virtues that were hardest to follow were: sincerity, silence, and temperance. I talk so much about random nonsense. My parents say I talk just to hear my…

Enough 😒

At first, I thought “The Dodo’s Conundrum” was about Christmas because of the building of the models, the trees, and the train on the tracks references, but it it’s actually more depressing than I thought. I also like the fact that the beginning and end of the poem have a stanzaic form but the middle…

Girl…👀

Part 1: When we began poetry I wasn’t excited. I didn’t want to read, write or analyze any poems at all. Since then, my views on poetry have kind of changed…a lot. I don’t hate reading poetry (most) and I don’t mind writing it, shockingly enough. Maybe its because we haven’t read a poem in…

Poetry? I don’t know her!

Poetry isn’t that bad. When we talk about doing poetry I always dread it but then when we actually do it, I usually kind of like it. The worst things about poetry are learning about stanza form and having to write poems. I did not like writing poetry at the beginning of this lesson and…
