  • Personal Experience: Beauty Queen Of Leenane And All My School

    Todd, I quickly realized my skills for comprehending reading and relating to situations in my life, would not be sufficient moving forward. The format and style of reading was not something I was familiar with. Then, as we analyzed Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats in the forum posts, I again felt uncomfortable and out of sorts relating the very short poems to the detailed assignments. Lastly, as we read and discussed Watership Down, I was initially overwhelmed and predetermined that I would not enjoy the novel. This perception was grounded from your introduction to the novel when you indicated that it falls into the same category as Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Game of Thrones. I normally do not find that genre of reading or film of interest.

Thus, I failed to develop the essay. More importantly, I struggled with completing the assignment, opposed to recapping the play, Sweeney Todd. I also felt the feedback from the SmarThinking Tutor Response on my 1st submission was not constructive of the assignment. I included the assignment details, yet, the response did not suggest a redirect from focusing of recapping the play, to the assignment.…

Just you and me on a quest to track down the golden key.” “I just hope we can find it soon. This stuff is awful,” I choked. “I even have grit between my teeth.” “What’d you say?” he shouted. “You’re a pit beneath my wreath. What does that…

However, this all changed when one day I was just sitting in my bed studying for an upcoming history test, and a name popped up across my screen: *Zach.
