When I think about this, my first though is, "It's over already? That was kinda fast." It's true. Even though we started at the end of October, it seems like it went by really quickly. It's kind of scary to think that I'm almost halfway done grade 10. That means 2 and a half more years until I'm done. WOW! Okay, back to the topic at hand.
For the most part, I'm pretty proud of the work I did in this unit. I learned a lot about myself, and how I see myself. It was really neat. I did a lot of really good writing, and I really am proud of my Identity project. I talked about the changes in my life, and about how they had affected who I was. It was really cool to examine myself, look in the mirror, so to speak, and see who I wanted to be, who I am, looking back at me.
If I could, I would try that Poetry Analysis again. I guess that analyzing poetry isn't a strength of mine. Sure, I understand it. I can write it, but I can't tell you what was going through the author's head when he or she wrote it. I can't tell you why they used the literary devices they used. I can tell you the devices used and how they make the poem or song better, but that's about it.
I'm really impressed with myself. This course is proving to be a challenge, but I love it. Let me get this straight though. I'm not trying to toot my own horn! I just want to say what I think I'm good at, and what I need to work on. That's all I'm trying to do.
P.S. Maybe my next post won't be about Humanities. Maybe it'll be a more personal post.
