Macbeth success

Success
1. What is your definition of success?
2. How do you judge whether or not people are successful?
3. How might the interpretation of success differ depending on who is judging?
My definition of success would be that it is the point when one have achieved something significant that you have want to do for a while. Then reaching it and feel content. Most of the time you tend to think that people who are rich are successful but I also think that being successful can aplly in sports like win a championship or being able to do something that you have always wanted to do. Well like I said before people my age see rich adults as successful most of the time being everyone likes money.

Long life

1-Should scientists try to help people beat old age so we can live radically longer lives? Why?
2-Do you agree with the author that “adding years to a life doesn’t necessarily make it any fuller?”
3-What would be the benefits of a scientific breakthrough that allowed people to live radically longer lives?
1-I think that they should so they should because if they have the technology to save older people then may be they can save sick children and younger adults.
2-I do agree with that in some aspects but what if they could add years to your life and keep you feeling young and pain free.
3-well the most obvious one would be that people can live longer and like I said before it could save people dying at a young age.

Problems


  • Identify a problem you have had in your writing this week and talk about what you will do next to try to solve it.
  • One of the problems that I am having is thinking of ideas to write about in this new piece. I have had this problem in the past but I keep running into it. I have tired writing about things I like but I still have trouble starting and keeping the story going. I am also running out of ideas on how I can fix this. I have tried everything I can think of but nothing is working.

Blog reflection



     This year has been like all my other years of English. There has been a lot of assignments and papers. And I think I have done good on all of them. The areas that I have struggled on are finding out something to write about.  And all most every time I write about snowmobiles. Another thing I struggle with is my iPad. In the beginning it was very hard for me to get used to. But it is still a pain to type on. The places that I succeed in are getting most of my work in on time and having good details.
     My first piece is called “excitement”. It is a story about when my brother got a snowmobile for his birthday. The project was a writers craft and it is probably my best one yet. It is very detailed, descriptive and a interesting story that is 100% true.
     The next piece is the McMurphy characterization paper. It is pretty short because I am not good at adding fluff to my papers. I also like to just get to the point and then done. But it is good work.
     The third one is the video. It is. A book summary of the book holes. I talk about all the main events that happen in the story, like when Stanley gets accused for stealing the sneakers. But it is actually his new friend that did it.
     Theses are the goals that I set in the beginning of the year
    “I want to work on developing ideas and incorporating more details in my essays, I would also like to make it flow better. Another thing i need to work on is get a 90 or above. To complete my first goal I will write ideas on a flash card about  the topics I need to cover. To complete my second goal I will try hard as I can on all my work and check your website frequently and make sure all my home work is done.”
I have completed one of my goals and that is I have been developing my ideas and incorporating them into my work. In my excitement piece I think that it really proves that I have achieved this goal. As for my other goal I still have more work to do to achieve that feat. But I am doing the things that I had wrote in the beginning of the year that would help me to successes in my goals. They have been working well for me but I now know that there are other things that I must do to achieve my hardest goal which is get a 90 or above. I just hope that this paper that I am working on now will help get my grade to where I want it to be which is a 90 average.
