A Little Bit Here and There

A Little Bit Here And There
I have taken 12 years of English in my past. My experience was good, I always felt like English was my strongest subject and I always enjoyed it the most because it gave me the opportunity to express myself with pen and paper. In high school I finished of the year strong graduating doing extra classes such as college writing. I would probably have to say it was my favorite subject because there was nothing I ever disliked. Even till this day I still remember some Shakespeare quotes I had memorized in high school from “Macbeth”. A major goal I would love to accomplish would be finishing college with a high GPA. I graduated high school in 2008 and have not gone to college because of my work schedule. I’m actually happy that I went through all the trials in my life because now I have so much more respect for school and I understand completely how vital it is to my success. My goal in college is to organize my life in a way that it would help me achieve the best grades as possible in school. I need to discipline myself in ways I never have before. I’m in college now to make a better life for myself and for my family. My major is Psychology; eventually I want to be a high school counselor. I’ve experienced quite a lot of things in my life that a normal teenager shouldn’t have experienced and I feel like I could use it as a testimony to help troubled teens overcome obstacles in high school. My goals for this semester is get all A’s in all my classes and show the world that you can achieve anything if you put 110% of your effort into it. I’m very excited to jump back into school. My goal for this class is to get back in the habit of writing again. I’ve always enjoyed writing a lot because it allows me to drift into my own world with my thoughts. There is no “ultimate” crisis with the world today because everything is messed up in my opinion. The crisis starts on how we live and our environment. American’s are one of the unhealthiest out of all countries. If we step back and open our eyes to what advertisements show our kids and families we’d be devastated. The sexuality expressed in it alone is wrong. Can you believe that some commercials relay that smoking or wearing a certain perfume will make you sexier? Some things about me that make me unique are: I’m the first to go to college in my family. My parents are both from Uruguay which is a very, very small country that not a lot of people know of. I played piano since the age of 8, first teaching myself then picking up lessons along the way. The title of the text book required for this class is The Little Seagull Handbook by Bullock & Weinberg. The mildest penalty for plagiarism is anywhere from failing the class to academic probation or expulsion. Unintentional plagiarism IS penalized. The final date to withdraw for this term is April 1, 2013. HCCS policy states that a student who is absent more than 12.5% (6 hours) of class may be administratively dropped from the class. If I log into Eagle Online regularly, it counts as being present but if I don’t participate in the weekly activities I risk being dropped. If I am not able to log into Eagle Online I am able to email you on your HCCs email account. The news discussion posting must be 250 words. Each comment on a classmates posting must be at least 100 words. The deadline for the weekly news discussion forum posting is 9 pm Sunday of that week. The Research Proposal is due February 4th. The Informative Essay is due Monday, February 25th. The Journal is due April 15th. The minimum word count for the Informative Essay is 1000-1250 words. Major assignments have to be emailed to the professor and uploaded into turnitin. It is very necessary to do both. I should comment on at least one of my classmates’ research topics with a minimum of 100 words. MLA format is the preferred format when emailing assignments. There is generally NO extra credit. Three documents that I’m required to read during week one are: “An Introduction to your Professor and your DE class”, “Myths of DE Classes” and “Online Etiquette”. Gaudi is one of your favorite architects. I wasn’t very familiar with him so I researched about him and his artwork is beautiful and very intriguing. One of my favorite structures would probably have to be Casa Batllo because of the uniqueness and detail of the building. Amazing. The last city you visited was Lihue in Hawaii. I found this pretty interesting because when I was younger I lived in Maui, Hawaii for about a year or so. I remember the beautiful weather, beaches, and exotic flowers. Your favorite musician is Olafur Arnalds. His music has so much emotion it’s beautiful. Being that I am also a pianist I can definitely appreciate this type of music. I definitely enjoy his music as well!
