How to eat

Ingredients:

Anything edible

utensils,

Empty mouth

available hands

hunger

time to eat

HOW TO:

  1. Pick a time of day that you are going to eat and for how long
  2. Find any type of food that you want to eat, along with a good portion so that you don’t end up hungry too early after you eat.
  3.  Have something to eat your food with, hands, utensils, whatever.
  4.  Take a small portion with whatever you’re using to eat (bite-size/chewable size)
  5. Take a few bites of your food until it is small enough to swallow. (You should know how to swallow. If you don’t that’s too bad because you will die of hunger 🙂 )
  6. Continue at your own risk and pace until all the food is done.
  7. Now enjoy being full for like 2 more hour unless you’re a “fatass” like me.

“Navigating genres” reflection

How I feel writing on Facebook; I write on it every day. Mainly because it became a platform that is very easy to talk on. You can post absolutely anything on there, and you wont have to worry that there will be something wrong with the post. It wouldn’t be the case if it was my grandmother. Not even as old as my grandmother, maybe someone just a little younger like a couple of my professors, they don’t even know anything about Facebook let alone to use it. So Facebook definently has a age group it targets.“‘I Am Under 18’ Button Clicked For First Time In History
Of Internet” was the most interesting topic mainly because no one expected this to ever be a thing. Someone hit the button…whether or not you are 18 you can always you are and the website has to believe you. There is no way the internet would know how old you are. So for someone to click the button to say no is really surprising. One rule that I always had was to never use a I in a sentence, mainly because that rule has been ingrained in me from I was young. And with this rule I have struggled the most with essays as my genre. They are just so long and energy-draining. I would rather do a poem, because it is hard but concise.

Shitty first draft

In this excerpt it talks about writers always having a shitty first draft except one person. So she started talking about how this one person is the exception to having a terrible first draft and I dont know who that is. I don’t normally pass the first draft because of how much time it takes, but it does turn out quite crappy so I would just edit it and call it a day. But what she said made a lot of sense the first time is rarely ever good, and that it takes about three tries which is a good number. But three drafts. That’s alot and whats the crazy part is that you can write a lot and none of it would be good until the last part. That I would not be able to do, but I certainly respect the effort you have to put in. I also didn’t know that writers could have such chaotic minds. So much so they have to go so far and have to mentally visualize themselves shutting it all off in order to get good work done. That part of the writer life I rather not have to deal with.

Influences:

I picked a lot of books because even though I don’t think I read often I spread out different genres, from spiritual, to business, to entertainment form s because I am ver y curious person and  I want to learn something new about everything. Like different life experiences like the diary of a wimpy kid.  Then questions about life and how to get the most out of life. Then financial/business to figure out numerous ways to thrive in this world with money, Especially because there is a lot that people don’t know that I want to.  Then with movies, I pick movies that are broad that had a different back story. Like dragon ball as an anime film that is unfamiliar.  Then black acting films like creed, black panther and,  12 years a slave to show different angles of how black people have prospered. Then I have an old side like Lord of the rings and jungle book.  But I just love a good story no matter how old the film.
