TPCASTT poem anal.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Well that takes care of all the catching up I have to do for the most part.

Now Ive wanted to do this particular blog post for awhile and this seems like an oportune moment so here goes.

To my class mates I ask the question of why? Recently Ive been struggling with the drive to put out my best quality work because i figure why go all out when i can do the bare minimum and pass. Especially when all I have to do to get in to the collage I'm going to is basically ask to be let in. I realize this is flawed logic but humor me. So for any classmates who can offer up some kind of nugget of wisdom or reason I should care leave a comment below.

Anyway Thanks


So its been brought to my attention that i did the Spectator sport thing wrong. I was supposed to add Monty Python music in the background but being that i have a particular disdain for Monty Python and his works(not bashing anyone who does just not my thing) I opted to go with some classical remix music. Hoping this wont be a problem for most

Re post Writing as A Spectator Sport

For the sake of having these assignments in order I'm re-posting my video here! Again Enjoy.

Semester Quarter Review

1st : So i think we've established by this point that i need to put more effort in to it i get that part by now cant say its gonna happen but at least i understand it nerds too.\

2nd: Goals are as follows... do the work that I need to do so that I can get a passing grade, graduate and leave high school. Pretty good goal if you ask me but then again nobody really did.
Expectations things are only going to get harder and i guess in my case more uninteresting so i just have to make it a point to focus on it.

3rd: I have no constructive criticisms or  suggestions besides I'm sure even if i did they'd be overlooked or disregarded  there fore i have nothing.
