It's the second week of school and it's just reminding me how much closer I am to actually graduating and moving on with the rest of my life. I love the thought of graduating and being on my own when I leave for college but I also fear that I'll make mistakes somewhere on my journey and it'll impact my life in ways I can't imagine. I will admit though, I have different opinions about school. I love coming to different classes and learning new things and I also love seeing my friends that I haven't seen in awhile. But school can be very stressful sometimes especially for the students who have a lot going on at home, work or even with homework.
This week in AP literature I learned to better understand poetry and even respect it more than I did before. Something that we learned this week that has really helped me to better understand poetry was the TP-CASTT. I really didn't know much about poetry, at first I would just read the poem and think Okay the author is telling us exactly what he wants us to know, but after breaking down and analyzing the poem "The Eagle" I realized that even a poem that's only two sentences can really make your mind think about all the things that the author could be implying.
I'm really enjoying myself in this class, this is the first AP class that I've ever taken so I was a bit worried and honestly I still kind of am. This is only the second week of being in this class and I definitely believe it's going to help me in the future, not only by helping me become a better writer but by helping me with my reading and opening up my mind with different possibilities that could happen in any story.
