    This English course has turned out quite better than what I would expect it to be for an online student. There was few difficult times for me in this course; however, it was not because of the assignments themselves. It was because of me having to have surgery the last week of this class. Which resulted in having to turn in my assignments earlier than my peers. There were many things that I did learn about the course as well as my thoughts on how a course may be different than what you would…

    Can actions actually speak? Do they speak louder than words? Mark Twain once said, “Actions speak louder than words but not nearly as often.” In society today, many people overuse phrases such as: “I’m sorry” or “I will not do it again,” which leaves the phrases with hardly any meaning.
