Metacognative Essay Going into AP Literature and Composition, I thought I had an idea of what I was getting myself into. However it was nothing like AP Language and Composition, on the contrary, it was ten times harder. From all the essays needed to be written, to the confounding pieces of literature that we read and analyzed, to the daunting Socratic discussions-Incomplete fragment (Need to add: from the essays blah blah, there has to be something that comes after it. Cause/effect). One very important skill that I have learned during the class was time management. I used to procrastinate and not do half of the work that was assigned either because I had other work to do or because I didn’t have anytime to do it. There was a great difference in my academic work from first quarter to second quarter. I didn't try first quarter as much as I did this quarter. My mother told me that instead of giving up on school because it is my last year, I should do my best and get excellent grades so then I can say I finished high school strong. That's when I started raising expectations for myself and setting a goal for where I want to end up at the end of this year. Once we began to write the AP essays, I did all my that my last year teacher told us to do to acquire a well written AP essay. However, what I wrote did not meet the expectations for a good grade, so the second one that I wrote was not written well either. I began to quit and not do so well on the rest. What was the point, right? The point was that if I don't strive to do my best this last year, I will be no where near ready for college. Around the beginning of second quarter I had to write my personal essay. I knew exactly what I wanted to wrote about but I wasn't sure how I wanted to word it. Once I realized that fear was what kept me from accomplishing (writing?) great things, I decided to put that fear aside and work harder for what I desire. That's when I began to put effort in my assignments. Parallel to that, my grades began to rise. Even though they still weren't incredible grades, they still showed that the harder I try and the more effort I put into my work, the more superior my grades become. Nonetheless, I wasn't very proud of my Beloved paper. I knew what I wanted to assert in my writing, but my the time I was done with it, I noticed how repetitive and cipher it was. Expectantly, by the time it is time to take

Exploiting the Vulnerable.
The fast food industry sees children as a future as well as current market and hence brand loyalty at a young age helps in the quest of continued sales later. $15-17 billion is spent by companies advertising to children in the US. Over $4 billion was spent in 2009 by the fast food industry alone. Children are naïve about advertising and are easily controlled and exploited by the…
In the article “The Great Housing Rebound of 2012,” Christopher Matthews discusses how there is hope for Americans in the housing market, and on how the Federal Reserve is the most important factor in increasing home prices. Matthews argues how unemployment plays a large role in the housing markets recovery, and how in order to have higher prices, buyers need to be able to make enough money to afford the house. Unemployment needs to decrease in order for America to truly be a strong economic force…

hydrogen atoms polarly and covalently bonded with a single oxygen atom in the liquid form. Homogeneous goods, such as water, are perceived as identical to the consumers’ eyes. Essentially, they are the same in size, taste, quality, and value. In this paper, I will be discussing another commodity and how it is perceived in the market as a homogeneous good. I will be discussing white rice and the implications of the economics of rice as a homogeneous good.
The good that each firm produces is identical…
The RV industry has been around for a very long time. Americans, it seems, have been destined to be RVers since the earliest days that explorers set foot on this continent. Adventurers at heart, settlers came in search of freedom and opportunities to grow and discover. And discover they did, first by ship, then by horse, in groups by Conestoga wagon trains and ultimately, by motorized vehicles that ushered in the RVs of today (Gorving.com). A century ago, the popularization of the automobile…
