On my 9th grade school year I had a friend mostly everyone would call him old man.Graduation party most schools would not do this for their senior year students, since they wouldn’t want to waste money.He gave me my phone back and 3 classes later I found out he took my sim card from my phone.Most friends like that are hard to find know a days some friends would stab you from the back and just pretend to be your friend.The last year in high school would have most people panicking on what they going to do after high school.

Until then, have a good one my friend!If I find out anything earth-shattering, I’ll update this blog.(Note: A really useful writing exercise is to pretend that you are someone else giving yourself some down to earth advice about your life and plans.)Think for yourself...that’s a no brainer, but I want to be clear with you: the best way to think for yourself is to use critical thinking.If you aren’t thinking for yourself and if you aren’t taking action in life, then self-help really is just a waste of your time.

After cursing most of those surrounding her, when she reaches Hastings, she predicts ‘And so wast thou, Lord Hastings, when my son Was stabb’d with bloody daggers.In this scene, not much sympathy is inflicted towards Hastings, as although he seems to be deterred by the curse, he puts it to the back of his mind, attempting to impress those surrounding him, especially Richard after striking up a friendship, and therefore appears arrogant.Margaret warns the company against Richard, ‘Thou elvish-mark’d, abortive, rooting hog, Thou that was seal’d in thy nativity The slave of nature and son of hell’ (1.3.line 227-229).This curse comes true and Hastings happens to remember her prophecy in his last speech before his death.Rivers and Buckingham ...

You're in what I call a "comfort zone" and you pretend that it's okay, so you accomlish nothing to take you to higher goals, to make you go somewhere in life, and you end up going no where, and when you look back at everything you've been doing for so long, you don't feel so good about it as the way you thought you would because you have nothing to show for it, especially if you really don't know where you are going in life because life only rewards action and those who know what they want and have goals to achieve are going to get somewhere.For example, if you don't know the answer to a problem that a teacher is teaching you become stuck and therfore, you must ask a question, so the teacher can help you to understand to shed light on yo...

There are many people that believe the compulsory secondary school education movement (‘create 100% HS graduates”) was a mistake too.But it’s just that barrier that makes it possible for others to attend – college seats are not an unlimited resource of which we have plenty.If we removed the cost barrier then the competition for seats would be even greater and we’d still not have solved the problem of universal higher education.While being well educated is very good at the individual level – society still needs people to do jobs that those who keep gaining more education simply don’t want to do.Our society would like to pretend that everyone is equal in motivation and intelligence but we know that’s not really true.

This is because Abigail is the only way he can prove that he is in the right, and that years of studies have not gone to waste.Having considered the dramatic nature of this scene, I believe that it criticises McCarthyism and is an attack on the American society of the 1950’s.Miller does this by repeatedly showing the Salem citizens as ignorant and unintelligent.The innocent characters are the ones who are killed, and the guilty characters are the ones who get away with their crimes.This highlights the very point that during 1950’s America, there was no justice whatsoever, and the only people who ruled were those who were able to put fear into the hearts of others.

The comparisons the author uses makes it seems that writing poetry is somehow pretending, it’s a game of who will win and fail were all pretend and hope to win.This is of course very unlikely and will most probably never happen, but it is often heard of authors being frustrated and completely shattered after a failure of some sort in their writing.But if an author is really frustrated it can have serious consequences on their psyche as they can become depressive and then in consequence die.It sums up in 33 lines the risks of any creative act, be it writing poetry or performing dangerous.Constantly risking absurdity by Lawrence Ferlinghetti portrays the truth of creative writing.

There are 26 letters on the keyboard, 10 numbers, 13 symbols, and yet unbelievably this does not make the same level of interaction as talking to someone.The ‘chat’ system on facebook is the most used one on facebook, pages, walls, games are all good and everything, but what really makes facebook great is the chat system on it, or so we think.Free thinking is gone, it is no more, everything on the internet is a reblog, a reblog of a reblog, and all of this is shared through facebook, people think what they are told, and they are told though facebook, nothing new nothing original.People cloud their identity, pretend to be something or someone they aren’t, and that makes the entire socialisation, well… pointless.When was the last time a pe...

On the other hand, some teachers tend not to focus on the children’s learning through play as they believed that it is just a waste of time and rather follow in meeting the curriculum demands and syllabus given.However, according to Maynard and Thomas (2004), it is only relatively recently since the translation of Vygotsky’s work and through the writing of more recent researchers, that this view has been challenged and argued that pretend play is considered to be the product of social collaboration rather than a developmental process.Like Vygotsky, Bruner also subscribes to a socio-constructivist theory of play in which he emphasizes the important of symbolic or pretend play.Since pretend play presents a much greater cognitive challenge ...
