Homework# 6 ENG 101
Interpretation# 1
Arnie Watson is a student of Riverdale high school. He is in his junior year. He has five tests on a spring Friday and unusual events happen due to which he could not study for his tests and has to write on his clothing to cheat.
He spends two hours on the phone convincing his girlfriend not to break up with him and did not learn Spanish vocabulary for the test. He has an argument with his parents and couldn’t go to the library to study history with his friend. Spends more time practicing and exercising after school to ensure his place in the basketball team and thus could not read the novel for the test. Due to his grandpa’s illness he could not study physics and as such events continue, could not study trigonometry too for the mathematics test. Therefore he plans to cheat and writes notes on his clothing wherever he felt appropriate.
We can guess about his personality clearly. Causalities and unusual things happen with everyone but it should not affect the main priorities. It depends on what priorities we set for ourselves. Arnie seems to give least priority to his studies and tests and thus the worst of the reasons affect his studies for the test. It seems he did not want to study, he found reasons to convince himself to cheat. If he had given priority to his test he would have definitely found some time to study. He seems to be a lazy and ignorant boy. He isn’t serious regarding his studies and give the least priority to it.
