--In this entry, I discuss a crime we have all committed, jealousy, in response to Mark Twain's "Luck".

·         It is What It is (Hardy, "The Man He Killed")

--This entry is a response to Hardy's "The Man He Killed". I explain my opinion that it is written from the point of view of an out of body experience.

·         How to read? Yes... How to Summarize? Yes... How to Analyze? Not so much (Roberts, Ch2)--Here, I react to Roberts Ch. 2 with a bit of a pessimistic attitude regarding the review of literary basics.

·         Who Am I? (Roberts, Ch 3)

--In my reaction to Roberts Ch. 3, I imagine what kind of a protagonist I would be if I was a character in my own story.

·         Clouded Judgment (Glaspell, "Trifles")

--This entry is in response to "On Turning Twenty". I reflect on how I as well as most other people seem to experience this state of depression during childhood.

--This is my quirky response to Hardy's "The Three Strangers" where I think one of the characters could be the Grim Reaper.

--I may be reaching here, but in this entry I question whether Shakespeare's "Sonnet 73" is about loss of innocence.

·         Those Sticky Pearls Just Won't Come Off! (Plath)

--One of my favorite entries. Here, I discuss the possible reasoning behind Plath's reference to the age 10 in both "Lady Lazarus" and "Daddy" and her hatred for the people who tried to "fix" her. I also did my own background research on the life of Sylvia Plath, a woman who ended her own life at 30.

·         What's the Point (Roberts Ch 5)

--This is a short entry on my opinion of Roberts Ch. 5.

·         Goodnight Juliet, Good Morning Homosexuality(MacDonald, "Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet")
