My Journey – Final Reflection

 

Dear Professor,

        My journey throughout this semester was refreshing. It was a totally different experience than my first English semester. This style of the class made it easier for me to break out of my shell. Having the opportunity to share my work in a circle was motivating because I felt supported and acknowledged. Giving the chance to introverts to participate and to be free to express their real thoughts without any judgments was challenging but helpful. With the sharing in a circle, I was able to relate to many of my classmates. We all have different writing format but share the same characteristics in life college, friendship, work, stress, and relationships. Personally, I think my writing wasn’t the best dealing with many grammar issues made realize that I still have problems to fix. However, this class taught me a lot from respecting my classmates to listen to the amazing writing classmates.

                                Unit 1

Unit one was very shocking and confusing for me. The fact that I was going to be limited in using letters in my assignments was strange. We did a constraint writing that was writing without descending letter on fear and one without ascending letters on the cure. The task was challenging in the beginning because most of us are not used to changes and these types of restrictions but it works out okay. I realized a person can bring out their creativity through having limitations. We also wrote a freedom essay in which we describe freedom to our point of view. Personally, I believe freedom is having the opportunity to use time in the way you want. Being free to express yourself and having people around you that support and motivate you to thrive to become the person you are will be what freedom is to me. We also wrote reflections on “Navigating genres” which was one of my favorite.

 

                                                             Unit 2

Unit two was more challenging for me because it requires me finding what my skill is. I believe that I’m a good cook who is not afraid to try new things. During this unit, we were asked to write a recipe for something we do well. We had to choose different genres for our topics. Giving steps to be a cook was tricky for me because my skill doesn’t require much but does need the patience of a person. Then we had to think

about who we were writing this for. We had to impact and teach the audience the importance of our skill. I enjoyed writing the recipe for a good relationship.

Unit 3

Unit three was a little complicated for me at the moment. I know I had to use the previous assignments to write my research. I wrote an essay in which I explained a situation in which women are categorized in being cooks.

 

Unit 4

Unit four was extremely difficult for since I’m not good at making digital versions of an assignment. I got anxious and nervous knowing that I had to create a video about my topic. I decided to make a podcast in which I interviewed a friend about my topic and realize how everyone has different perspectives than me.

Fear

I believe that I don’t have fears. I’ve been hurt by insects. Some even made me lose consciousness. However, there is one fear I have which is fireworks. I know a friend that his face reconstructed because of denotation. Chunks of meat and flesh had to be removed from the floor and walls in case it was needed later on.

Cure

Stay away from that explosive.

Respond to “Shitty First Drafts”

When I write essay my initial routine is to write many thoughts that I have. I was not surprised by the chapter’s title at all. As I read the title I knew I was going to able to relate to the author. When she described that she would sit down with her notes reminded me of the steps I take to when writing essays. In my opinion changing the way I write won’t have to change at all in order to write a “shitty first draft”.

Navigating Genres

 

To be honest I’m not very confident in writing a piece based on the genre of Facebook. Yes, i might have more knowledge about this type of social media than an adult. Some parents and grandparents are not familiar with even using a phone because “it’s a lot of technology for me” what my mom says all the time. Unlike us millennials who are attracted to ours phones. Older people might have difficulty communicating through Facebook unlike us who can text four people in different social media. My favorite tiptoe from Dirks newspaper The Onion would be “Myspace Outrage Leaves Millions Friendless” which made me laugh a bit because I remember that during that time it was one of the most popular social media and now mostly everyone forgot about it.

Essay Research

The purpose of my research is to show that women can be a successful chef. Men dominate the industry as chefs. However many people believe women aren’t capable of having a stressful and tough job like being in a kitchen. As a female I believe that men always try to women look like sassy or arrogant if they are successful chefs. However men are applauded for being strong willed and stubborn. In a article named “ I’m a Women and a Chef. I Shouldn’t Have to Care If You Like Me” in a female chef who participated in a “Top Chef” was winner of the first season. During the competition she got negative feedback on her attitude.

 

She is able to describe the struggle women go through in the industry. Her experience demonstrates that it is difficult to achieve your accomplishments as a woman in a industry dominated by men. Sometimes being power can intimidate others. Meanwhile, many females make their their way to the top pushing aside the boundaries that men might create on the way. That’s the reason why sometimes women might come of as a “Arrogant” referred in the article.
