Journal 2: Understanding Relationship Throughout the course of the semester I have been emailing, The Terminator. I have never spoken to someone without knowing who they were so it was very challenging for, especially when I could not identify myself to them as well. In my first contact with the Terminator I was careful not to state anything that will give away who I am. I did not state my age, I did not my gender, I did not tell him my major, my ethnicity or anything I stated in class that would have given who I was away. The Terminator also did a very good in not telling me things that would not give him away. He did not state his gender but considering the name of the email, I automatically thought is was a male because I could never see a female calling herself the Terminator. One main thing I had to keep to myself was what sport I played in high school because I played softball. Softball is a female sport, so if I would have told him I use toplay softball he would have known I was a female. It was pretty tricky because the converstations just flow so well you do not realize you are giving away hits to the other person without even knowing it. Thankfully I caught on to that and was able to keep my gender hidden and not give it away. My perception of the Terminator did not chang very much throughout the course of this assignment because I started to pick up on things very quickly. For one, I had the idea that he was a male because of his name but once he began replying I automatically and confirmed it myself that he was a male. He is responses were that of a mans, they were very short and simple and he really did not say much. It was one of those conversations where if I did not try to engage ina conversation there will be no conversation. If I were emailing a female that would have not been the case. Us women, we talk and we can ramble on just about anything. As my partner and I continued to speak I did notice him becoming more comfortable with his responses. He was opening up more and responding a little less uptight thtroughout…

Poem Comparison Essay
April 17, 2014
The poems “Her Kind” by Anne Sexton, and “I am Vertical” by Sylvia Plath contain numerous
differences like structure, tone and rhythm. After breaking down both readings, these poems contain
common themes; individual identity, society, isolation, and death are themes portrayed in both poems.
The differences of the symbolism of these common themes help visualize a difference between the
importance of accepting yourself and…
Hey, I know it's kind of late
I was hoping I could take..
a few minutes of your time, I know we needed space
but you've been running Around in my mind as of late
I gotta ask, do you ever think about us?
before you cut me off, can you sit down and just..
listen, I just gotta get this off my chest
am I the only one with feelings that never left?
I know I messed up. I was so insecure
Maybe it's the fact that you were never sure
but whatever we went through, how love turned into anger
I Am Here
By: Brooke Drake
Don’t feel alone, I am here,
I am the sun that shines every day,
I am the leaves falling in autumn,
I am the rain that falls so gracefully,
I am the snow that falls lightly,
Don’t feel alone, I am here.
By: Brooke Drake
Each drop falls gracefully,
The rain dances and sings a song,
A song of beauty, a song of life,
Tink… tink… a song fills the air,
The earth cries….
The sky tears, tears up to this world,
Tink… Tink… the song fills…
I Am Missing
When Wayne Wang was fired from his job as a Director of Soap Operas in Hong Kong, he came back to San Francisco and worked in the Chinese community helping people get jobs and teaching English. At the same time, he collected stories and valuable first hand information that he compiled about Chinese immigrant community, which in turn became Chan Is Missing, a film today that I personally still identify with and feel like it accurately represents the Asian American community.

I Am Me
I Am Me
Have you ever thought about why you are who you are? There are many factors to making each individual unique from one another. From where we grew up all the way to our genetic codes, the vast variables that influence who we are differ with each human being. One might have a strong influence from their environment while others might have a heavy influence from their cultural…
Who am I? I am the result of 4 billion years of evolution. I am trillions of individual cells working together in perfect harmony. I am but one part of a 7 billion piece jigsaw puzzle. I am Sundeep Bath, but that in itself is not interesting. I find that who a person is cannot be found in a birth certificate, nor in a resume or biography, but is hidden beneath all the flesh and bone. Who a person is is too complex for any individual to understand. It is in the crevices of the human mind, heart…
Who am I? I am a daughter, friend, volunteer, granddaughter and a niece. I am loved, supported and encouraged by family. I contribute a lot of who I am by the example of my parents. Many of the significant factors are contributed by parent’s belief in discipline, education and self-accountability. As college student, I recognize that I have an opportunity that some college students do not have. I have the love and support of my parents who have chosen to finance my college experience. I have the…
there is chains about my feet, time I get this far." (Also a symbol for the recent memory of slavery.) Typical of elderly, she talks to herself along the way, and to the animals and even the plants she encounters, seen and unseen. Also, we know that she is old because she is on a quest that she briefly forgets the purpose of, by the time she gets there.
Her journey is along a "worn path," thus we are led to believe this is a trip she has made numerous times. I think that this worn path is also symbolic…
Who Am I
I am a mother who is curious, classy, and witty. I hope to be respected by others and I want to better myself. A mother is defined as a female parent, one that is loving, kind, and caring towards her children. I consider myself a loving mother. Loving isn’t all hugs and kisses. Loving is also discipline. As a mother, I am a strong believer in not giving my children everything they ask for. They should have to work for things. This has taught my children to respect the things they have…
