    Victor needed to take responsibility for his actions because he did not his future ended up with revenge, and bloodshed. Nobody wins in a war built on revenge. “‘I gazed on my victim, and my heart swelled with exultation and hellish triumph: clapping my hands, I exclaimed, ‘I, too, can create desolation; my enemy is not invulnerable; this death will carry despair to him, and a thousand other miseries shall torment and destroy him (Shelley 104).’” Victor isn’t a very good person, nor is he a good father; however, he’s done something that no parent should ever do. Victor did horrible things to the creature, and by doing so he had to expect what was about to ensue. Victor needed to act like a parent and take responsibility for what he did instead of ignoring the being that he created. How Victor ran away from his responsibilities and neglected the creature reflects on why the creature ‘acted out’. “‘Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had just created, I rushed out of the room, and continued a long time traversing my bedchamber, unable to compose my mind to sleep (Shelly 36).’” Victor could not stand to see his own creature to come to life so he runs away from it. Already abandoning the ‘child’ that he had created. Victor had ‘so miserably given life’ to this being that he created. He is being bitter to this creature and he expects this creature to not be bitter? Victor feels sorry for himself that he abandoned the creature, and now the creature is trying to get his…

    “Internal Despair” Human behavior has been discussed repetitively as any experience we endured to be a lesson, whether it be bad or good experiences.

    five pages long, front and back, and the vocal range needed to complete the piece, as a soprano one, was insanely large. The vocal range for the soprano one line ranged from an alto one, the second lowest female singer, to a soprano one, the highest female singer, covering two entire octaves. It was bursting with crescendos, decrescendos, staccato notes, and retards. This was the musical piece of all pieces, by far the hardest I have ever had to read. But that was only the start of my show choir…

    choral singing The importance of singing is very interesting to me. I have sang my whole life and find it absolutely fascinating and i would like to show you the importance. When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape. Group singing, for those who have done it, is the most exhilarating and transformative of all. It takes something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you, shares it with a roomful of people and it comes back as…

    An introduction informed us of the great inventions of the Renaissance in every field. Orlando di Lasso 's ‘’Conditor alme siderum’’ had the excellence of harmony dissolving into a full choir, now and again making organ-like sounds. Antoine Busnois ' ‘’Gaude, caelestis domino’’ was the soonest piece and was loaded with vivacity and complex cross rhythms working to a euphoric completion, and the singers were seriously vigilant and aware of each other. Robert Parsons ' ‘’Ave Maria’ ’was…

    Journal #5 Riley Parsley said “um” a lot and did not have good pronunciation or talk loud enough. I could not understand him at times and he did not have good posture. He explained the process of becoming a game warden well and he was talking to the audience, but he did not express his transitions clearly. Heather said “um” and “stuff like that” a lot. In the beginning of her speech she was banging on the podium which was distracting. I think her transitions were rushed but she clearly stated…

    suited mainly for pop due to me practicing how to enunciate words, getting a stronger chest voice and learning how to control glottal stops so I can use them for emphasis of words rather than unintentionally which would result in vocal damage. These qualities are found within most pop singers. I have learnt this from analysing singers voices to see their qualities and through me going to singing lessons every week where this is a common topic of discussion as having my voice be suited for pop is…
