This was the week that we started watching the movie se7en. I ended up missing the first class that it was shown but I was told what had happened the first 40 minutes of it. When I showed up to class the next time, I had started watching at half way and watched the rest of the movie. It was a very gruesome and violent movie. The acting was really good, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman did a wonderful job. We ended up having to write about the movie. I chose to write about the se7en sins because I watched a show that dealt with them, it was called FullMetal Alchemist.

I happened to go to another concert in Richmond. It was for a group called Adventure Club. They played at The National and it was spectacular. It wasn't as good as Flux Pavilion but it was very fun regardless. They don't play that hardcore Dubstep which actually is a good thing because I am not really into the Dubstep as much as I used to be. Their music is really good and everyone was so hype when they came out. I had a blast seeing as it is the second time I have been to a concert! I will definitely keep going out to concerts because they tend to be a good time for me!

This essay was a bit harder for me only because I have to decide on my own what to talk about and I was not exactly sure what I wanted to write about. I did want to write on the dogs and relate them to the poems but I also wanted to write about abortion and why it can be necessary at some points in time and why it should be not used just like Hills Like White Elephants. I am probably going to change what I wrote about because I turned in a rough draft of writing about dogs. I think I can also write about more when it comes to abortion even though it is a touchy topic. It is not bad to voice my opinion at all, so that's why I am changing my topic.

So this week was one that happened to go kind of fast because it was Halloween and everyone was excited to dress up and get candy or go out and hang with friends. In class we had just been going over poems such as the really sad dog poems. I am not a big fan of poems but i did like some of the ones that we went over in class. I thought that the best poem was We Real Cool, it was literally the shortest poem in the whole book and I was in a group that had to talk about it which was just silly. I did have a good week this week, even when i had to start writing my essay.

In class, we peer edited our second paper that is going to be due at the end of the semester. I wrote about the symbols in the story. There were a few actually but I only had to write about three main ones. We really did just go over papers the whole week. We did do a reflection of the paper and than we got assigned a third paper. I think this one will be easier only because we can technically write about whatever we want. I am hoping that next week is a little better when it comes to doing things in the class. I am assuming that we will be doing something different tomorrow.

There were only two days of class this week that I had to attend. It was a rather short week since students had fall break this week. It was not really a Fall Break but honestly, it was better than nothing. This past week we literally talked about The Glass Menagerie. We played a trivia game and my team got second place out of three teams which isn't that bad. It was not a big deal because first place didn't get a prize for winning. On Wednesday, we just tried to do some research for the paper since our rough drafts are due tomorrow in class. I am actually almost done with it. I hope that it meets all the requirements and that everything sounds good. This paper is surprisingly not as tough as tough as I interpreted it to be. I am going to get back to doing that, so deuces!
I am writing about the first event that I attended since I need to do two by the end of this semester. The first event was actually a music concert that happened at The National in Richmond on Thursday. The person playing was a DJ called Flux Pavilion. It was him and a few other people. He was the very last person and It was a great thing to go to. I have never been to a music concert and that was my first time. I really enjoy music and it was good to see someone I enjoy listening to live. There were so many people there and it was crowded but I did not mind it one bit! He is actually from the United Kingdom as well and he still played even when he had a broken arm which was amazing! Music honestly makes things so much better in this world, I wouldn't know how I would be if I did not listen to it. It always sets the mood and helps whenever I need to calm down or focus. Music is a blessing.
