Space

Ever since I was a little kid I was always interested in space. The vast unlimited space of the universe, billions of galaxies that float around in space and time. The creation of matter and all the energy that changes into different types of forms. The first ever galaxy that has every caught my eye was the andromeda galaxy. The milky way’s next door neighbor. Scientist say that our galaxy is crashing with this galaxy in a couple billion of years. Where does that collision leave us? Well we would be dead of course when it happens. There just so many questions out there that our human life span isn’t long enough to learn every material. But I believe aliens are out there that have learned everything. I always wondered if you learned everything there is to possibly learn than whats the point of living if you know everything? I always thinks about a lot of bizarre questions and things that happen in space and just try to imagine what its like to float on, into a ever straight line for infinite or if your an astronaut and you jump out into space spinning than you would just spin forever, that would be a really suckey way to die. But if I ever had the chance to go out into space I would definitely do it. One really crazy experience would be to eat floating candy, having nothing holding you down, just float around and chill, maybe read a book when your floating and bouncing off the walls in a space ship or play football in a big spaceship. The craziest stuff we could do in a zero gravity environment! The biggest question I have is how do astronauts work out in space if there is no gravity to resist and hold stuff down? But space scares me sometimes just trying to visualize and imagine everything and thinking that a supermassive black hole is just sucking up everything. But yeah ever since i was small space has always been very interesting to me. I’d like to thank gravity for holding shit down.

Class of June 10

Class today was just like the first day of class, a lot of information was crammed into 2 hours. What really kind of freaked me out was that 3 weeks of class was crunched into one week. To me I thought a lot of information was just going to be shoved into our face and we just had to retain that information. But after the first two days of class I realized that this wasn’t going to be that bad because I got a classroom full of great scholars and one great professor. The best part i liked about todays class was talking about our education. When Bill used a metaphor of a bike and our education. Some students are just riding in the back of the bike, their neither peddling or steering. To me this meant that there not putting in any effort and there not controlling there education, I would say there just going with the “flow.” Todays class also got me really thinking about composition because I really don’t like writing. But Bill brought to my attention that we use composition everyday on our lives. Such as writing and revising posts on social media sites, sending emails are different forms of composition. That changed my perspective on composition by not wanting to write, to realizing that I write everyday.  The most information I’m going to take out of todays class is more knowledge about Language and composition. The more people talk, the easier it is to express themselves. Since its sometimes hard for me to write essays and give my opinion, I’m going to be more open minded for now on. Overall I learned some great techniques in class, my perspective was change about composition and todays vibe was really great!

Language

Language for me has always been about sharing ideas and communicating with one another. The first language I learned was English. I don’t ever remember the first time i started talking but I do remember that when I was middle school I really started focusing on my literacy because at times when I would read, I would sometimes come upon a word that didn’t make sense. Every time I got some of these unfamiliar words it would really frustrate me. Thats when I started looking up every word in my reading and my reading skills really improved. Just by learning these words in my reading, I started using the new words I learned in my everyday vocabulary. My Native Language is Navajo. I don’t really speak much from my language but I do know some basic words in my native culture. For example I know how to say “hello, dad, mom and grandpa” these are just a few basic words that i learned how to speak but I won’t try to spell because I might just spell it wrong. I never really tried to learn more of my words when I was young because a lot of other things grasped my attention and I never bothered to learn more of my native language. Language for me is a big part of my life, without it i wouldn’t be able to talk to my friends and express my opinions if it came to class. I believe Language is a big part of everybody’s life.
