    give out a sense of positive vibes and an overall sense of joy. For example while looking through her Facebook page, I came across several positive quotes that were inspirational and motivational. Her about you section has a quote that states: “Happy people don’t have the best of everything, they make the best of everything”. She has several more quotes around her page that are just as thoughtful and positive. For her cover photo, she has a head shot of herself, which she admits to be fond of because it is “super filtered” (meaning it was altered to take away any flaws and made to look better). On her Instagram under her introduction headline she had two personal quotes: “stay humble” and “be thankful”, which express her positive outlook on life. When it comes to pictures Janet is in love with photography and it is evident to see in her profiles. The main theme in Janet’s social media when it comes to pictures is that she displays pictures of her family, friends, and nature. There were not as many “selfies” as I thought I would see. In fact, there were not many pictures of Janet by herself, what I mostly came across were pictures of her with friends, family members and samples of her amateur nature photography. If there were any pictures of her alone, they were taken from afar. Anyone looking at Janet’s social media can tell she is also in love with nature. In looking at her Instagram I could see how much she enjoys the outdoors and the nature scenery. I came across…

    “Social Con Artist Created From Fear” Picture life as a stage. The stage is divides into two parts, the front and the back.

    In Erving Goffman’s novel from 1959, The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life, Goffman uses a dramaturgical approach in order to further exemplify the ways in which there is a connection between theatrical performances and the kinds of acts individuals put on in their daily lives. Through these social interactions and performances in everyday life, the self is informed, changed and thus produced.

    Erving Goffman is an American sociologist who wrote The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life and views social interactions amongst people as individuals or “team performances.” He believes that we, as human beings, are actors and that the world is our stage.

We are always “performing,” which refers to everything that we do in front of an audience or an observer. This gives an impression and…

    The most extraordinary things are also the everyday. —Henri Lefebvre, Critique of Everyday Life This presentation takes as its starting point Marjorie Perloff’s assertion, in the context of a discussion of Ludwig Wittgenstein, that poetry is not “the expression or externalization of inner feeling; it is, more accurately, the critique of that expression.” (Wittgenstein’s Ladder, 1996: 184) As such, poetry provides a vital occasion to examine, and reexamine, the language of our everyday life.
