  • Does anybody know how we can print out or blog posts? And also how long the reflection must be?

  • As my freshman year of college comes to an end, and today is the last day of the seminar class, it kind of all feels bittersweet. I can’t believe how much I grew up within this past year and how much more independent I became. Dorming was definitely a worthwhile experience for me here at […]

  • Last Wednesday, my group as well as the business group (I think that’s what it was called) presented. I believe the business group did a far better job at relating each and everyone of their majors to the others within their group. However, I must admit, I am very proud of my group’s ending conclusion. […]

  • So I just remembered the thing I read before our first or second seminar meeting: that article by William James that talked about passing judgements. I found it extraordinary! Before I continue, I feel as if I should mention that when I talk about all people and human beings in general, I am only referring […]

  • So I took the liberty of repeating this exercise again. The three words I started with were “she was there”; here it goes: She was there standing as everyone around her applauded. She may have physically been there with all these people clapping and honoring her with eyes of admiration, but little did anyone know […]

  • After my junior year of high school, upon completing my first accounting course ever, I knew this would be the career path for me. However, beginning with my senior year, my mother tells me about this vastly competitive/interesting field of speech pathology. At the beginning, I wasn’t interested in it all because I had my […]

  • I thought a good and efficient way of completing one of my required blog posts for this class was to post my transcript for the interview I had with Prof. Eva Fernandez which I included in my groups final presentation. I thought this would be an excellent idea because it might help people in the […]

  • Another post I found saved as a draft on March 9th, I have no idea what is going on and why my computer never posted these posts. But anyway, I will try and pray it posts it now. I had fun during last week’s seminar. What I found most interesting was the enthusiasm that Professor […]

  • Hi all, Sorry for the delay, I was looking through my posts today and found this post saved as a draft since 3/30. So I thought I would post it now, I have no idea why I never actually posted this but here it goes: So last week I had my group meeting during free […]

  • ok so I know this post is long overdue, but I thought it might be fun to do it now as finals approach to see the difference between mine (completed towards the end of the semester) and my classmates (completed beginning to middle of semester). So here it goes: Skechers, complete french final study sheet, […]

  • So today I stumbled upon this website and thought of the freshman seminar upon seeing it. I believe many of you will enjoy this site. Enjoy and feel free to post any comments you have! 🙂 http://www.oneword.com I found my stumbling upon this site very coincidental considering we were talking about this during one of our […]

  • The man walked into the room and suddenly realized that this is where he was meant to be in this room he felt at peace with the world yet at the same time didn’t care much for what was going on outside of the fiberglass door in here he was safe and nobody could make […]

  • I agree with most people on the blog about what they have to say in regards to the Bloomberg caricature. I believe it represents the fact that more and more people in New York are getting tired and frustrated with the mayor and his tactics. This, in part, could be because of the snowstorms and […]

  • As Wild states, “The emphasis and development of critical thinking skills lies in the act of revision, of re-seeing one’s written work, illuminated by assertions, commentary, and classroom debates.” This quote has aided me in my own views on revision and writing in general. I now understand how to look back at my essays and […]

  • Beatrice Pana commented on the blog post Kino Pravda 6 years, 11 months ago

    I really loved the fact that Carlene really made this sound like true program notes with uses of such phrase like “directorial debut”, etc. Though, at some points in the program notes it felt like Carlene was praising Brad and his work without any negative comments. I don’t know how important negative comments are to […]

  • I kind of agree, the story was simple, but I think that’s what made the movie okay. I didn’t quite find it unbearable. It was a nice break from present day movies such as the Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Inception which make you think.

  • I think the stationary camera technique was majorly beneficial to this movie, partially because the whole movie was basically about Japanese family life, and partially because all of the action just seems to unfold around the camera making us, the viewers, as you said, “were there during every scene.”
