Man in Disguise

| | Comments (0)

Flagstaff: I'll creep into the chimney

Mrs. Ford: There they always use to discharge their birding pieces,

Mrs Page: Creep into the kilnhole

Flagstaff: Where is it?

Mrs. Ford: He will seek there, on my word. Neither  press, coffer, chest, trunk well, vault, but he hath an abstract for remembrance of such places, and goes to them by his note. There is no hiding you in the house.

Flagstaff: I will go then

Mrs. Page: If you go out in your own semblance, you die, Sir John. Unless you out disguised.

This is a very interesting paragraph. She can have no man  in the house that her husband knows of. This makes her lie to her husband in order to save the life of a friend. He must disguise himself as the fat woman of Brainford or be shot.. It really makes it hard for her to be truthful with her husband under these conditions.

My Blogging Experience

| | Comments (0)

I'm a freshman at SetonHill University and in my first semester. I'm a business/ human resource major. I'm returning to school after having been in the workforce for the last twenty years.  I am enrolled in Introduction to Literary Study with Dr. Jerz.

I am currently learning to blog. Blogging is new to me and I'm having problems with it. It seems to be a great new adventure for me to learn, but I have a long way to go. I'm sure that this class will help me to improve on my blogging as I will need it to communicate to my peers.

Freedom of Speech redefined by blogs

| | Comments (0)
We are no longer using a joural, we are blogging. Blogging is very different from keeping a diary or journal. It is the new and improved method. The downfall with this new idea is that it is available for the puplic to view. No longer are our thoughts kept to our diary. No more secretes about our personal life. If you blog it, everyone knows. Freedom of speech exists. But, if you blog something as a thought, you may get a response. ex. Jessica's thoughts about her textbook for her class,were soon responded by the author all the way from England. So be careful what you blog about. Your thoughts are out there.

Victory Comes Late, Dickinson

Victory comes late, And is held to freezing lips (Dickinson L 1-2) This seems to quite a waste, that there was actually a victory, but he would never know. He gave his life without knowing the outcome. This is a sad occassion.

Dear Sirs,

I'm very interested in the position at the daycare that you have available. If you feel that I may need some more experience, I have enrolled in an early childhood course at the University. These activities should give me the experience necessary that I may be lacking. I am presently taking an english class that will assist me with my writimg skills.

Thank You,

Job Descriptions for Rich Farms

| | Comments (0)

For a recant job offer that I accepted, I was asked to prepare job descriptions for each and every job that is offered with the business. I do not have very detailed english writing skills, so this task would be difficult for me. I was new to the company, so for me to sit down and write a job description for all employees was going to take some time. After all, I barely knew what my own job entitled.

Everyday, I met with new personal taat I had not yet met so that I could learn their job and write their job description. When I finished writing all of the job descriptions, I met with the owner, to see what suggestions he may have. Taking his input into thought, and another two weeks of time, I finished the job description sheets. Now, upon hiring a new employee, they would be given a job description. This would make the training a lot easier. In the past, a new employee would spend a day with a present employee, learning what was expected of them. This never seemed to work out. There was always the unexpected to deal with.

The new job descriptions seemed to make new employees feel more relaxed and confident in their new atmosphere.

Song by John Donne

| | Comments (0)
Ride ten thousand days and nights, Till age snow white hairs on thee Song, John Donne ( 13-14) He wants to to find the right person for a relationship when he gets older.

"The parallel between the Two poems seem to close rather than a allusion for contrast, Donne's seventeenth-century "Song" may be a source of Eliot's twentieth-century "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" Hal Blythe and Charlie Sweet.  The very similiar technique and theme in the poems seems that the unnamed persona talks to himself. He wants to believe that the posibility of having a relationship with a woman is possible while the other side of him wants to believe that all women are bad, or unreliable and the possisility of a relationship is imposssible."He desires to ride ten thousand days and nights", and then meet a faithful woman, Dunne, Song (12), but, knows he will not meet thw womwn that her hopes to. "Do I dare disturbe the universe", The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, (45-46) Blythe and Sweet compare the two poems, likenesses and differences tosee how they relate. The two have very similiar theories. Both want a relationship, but thing that it will not happen. The woman that they are looking for doesn't exist.


Merry Wives of Windsor

| | Comments (0)
As the passage says I will marry her, sir at your request; but if there be no great love in the beginning, yet heaven may decrease it upon better acquaintance when we are married and have more occasion to know one another. I hope upon familiarity will grow more contempt. But if you say, "Marry her," I will marry har, that I am freely dissolved, and dissolutely. Shakespear, The Merry Wives of Windsor Act 1 P-12 lines 235-240. He will marry her even though he doesn't love her now. He will marry her for money and because his cousin wants him to marry her. Marriage is hard enough  when you think that you love someone. To spend your life with every day with another person, the same person everyday.To marry someone and hope to fall in love with them at a later date is not practical.

My Mistress' Eyes are Nothing like the Sea

My Mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;Coral is far more red than her lips' red:

lies 1 & 2 William Shakespeare, My Mistress' Eyes are Nothing like the Sea

He compares his Mistress' eyes saying that they are  not bright and colorful like the sun

Her lips are not red. It seems as though he suggests that she is not a very attractive woman.

He doesn't seem to like anything about her appearance, or the way she smells.

Death be not proud

Death, be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. Lines  1 & 2 John Donne. Death be not proud

Death comes to see us all at one time or another. It is a very sad time. Death is not a planned activity and none of us know when it is our turn. I do not like to write about death and would not create a sonnet about it.

Death, be not proud

John Donne

Holy Sonnets: Death be not proud

Death, be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so: (Lines 1 & 2 ) Death should not be proud, It is very sad that comes to everybody sonner or later. I would not want to write about death as a poem if I were the writer. Death eventually sees us all.

Because I could not stop for death, Emily Dickinson

Because I could not stop for Death,

He kindly stopped for me: Dickinson, lines 1-2

This seems as though she was walking across the street and could not stop in time for the carriage. But the carriage stoppped for her, just in time. This saved her life. She boarded and continued.

Victory Comes Late

Emily Dickinson

Victory comes late And is held low to freezing lips Emily Dickinson lies 1-2. This passage is very sad. It doesn't do much good to have a victory if you are not around to see it.  Very cold probably frozed to death, due to the reading, And is held low to frozen lips. Maybe, they won the battle, but this poor man didn't get to enjoy the knowing of it. His life was taken in vein,

Fright Farm

| | Comments (1)

Jeff and Bill were starting out the month of October working at Fright Farm. Fright Farm is five acres of grounds and a haunted mansion, filled with lots of surprises. This would be an adventuros month for the boys, as they would have alot of fun and make some money.

"I'm really excited about my role as a zombie", Jeff said. Shaking his head, "I'm not so sure that I'm going to like my role as Chuckie", replied Bill. "You need to get more involved with your character, have fun with it!" remarked Jeff. "It's no so much fun to scare people when they punch you or push for scaring them", said Bill. Jeff said, people come here to be scared, that is what they are paying for. The rules say that there is no touching". "Everybody doesn't always pay attention to the rules", replies Bill. Jeff remarks,"Well if someone touched me, I would have them removed from the grounds". "This is my first job and I want to enjoy it", said Bill. This is my first job and I love it!", said Jeff. "Let's just have fun and not let one bad customer ruin it for us", said Bill. Jeff answers, "That sounds like the best idea that you have had yet. Let's just have fun!"
