Okay... So I Lied

So... Because of a thought that hit me the other day, I decided that THIS will probably be the last post on the blog, not the last one I posted.

I realized that there are new seniors and such that might take a look through older blogs for help, inspiration and such. So if that's the case, then HELLO new senior taking this fine AP lit class, have a good year, and please take a look through my blog if you think it will help with yours.

Oh, and I updated the playlist too, so if you're here for the tunes, then cool

That's All Folks!

Well, one of the biggest days of our lives has just happened. All I can say is thanks. These four years have been a blast. To all my friends, family, and teachers that I had the pleasure of being in their class. Thank you.

It's officially time to read through the book and flip the page to a new chapter in life. So, sadly, this might be my final blog post. But I hope that I can still keep in touch will all my fellow comrades.

I will keep my gradustion playlist/music player up here for a few more days, then I will either put a new playlist, or remove it completely. I'll figure that one out later.

Until next time, farewell.

But this won't be the last, I promise

Masterpiece Academy Question

We were given tools of choice. And where exactly we wanted to take these tools and what we wanted to do with them. And what we took with these were our great masterpieces. I just found it so astonishing how people took something that they were passionate about and were about to share with everyone something that they loved, were passionate about, or just something on their mind that just needeed to get out... It was great.

With mine and Ricky's masterpiece, I was easily able to connect with something I love. Then being able to put it in a video and being able to show off fellow classmates a passion of mine was just a great feeling. And it's a greater feeling when they understand it as well. So, question, are we a hero? In some way we are. Our journey was learning the tools of open source, and the mission was our masterpiece. After it all went together, then we accomplished our goal. So, it was almost as if we were a hero to ourself in some way. And it all felt so great to accomplish

Title: We'll Go No More A-Roving

Paraphrase: Love between people will be put to an end

Connotation: Uses romantic terms like "the heart be still as loving"  and "by the light of the moon"

Attitude: Slightly gloomy, since what was is now about to end

Shift: A shift occurs in the last stanza. The focus goes from ending love to the daylight coming out and ending the night

Title Revisited: It makes a better understanding of the paraphrase. It gives the implication of love or relationship ending

Theme: Life goes through changes, yet life goes on

One Last Playlist....

Well, tomorrow is the first day of May. So, that means the countdown to graduation begins. The school year finishing up, big senior events like Prom and Grad Night happening, people making college plans, or just staring at the clock and calendar waiting for that big day to happen. Whatever they're gonna be doing, that big day of walking on the stage on the football field is gonna be here before we even know it.

In honor of the big countdown to the big day, I have made one last new playlist (for people who look at my blog for the music player, which I hope is a few people) for this blog with graduation-themed, graduation-related, or just graduation-sounding songs. I hope that you enjoy, and make sure you blast this on the week of graduation.

It is also up on Spotify on my profile. If you have Spotify, just search my name and it will be there for listening pleasure.


The Seventh Reading

After reading "Hope" by Emily Dickinson. I suddenly started using my imagination and started thinking of a picture. I imagined hope as a bird, I then took the literal text and then compared it to the metaphorical sense that is supposed to be taken out of it, which helps gives it a deeper meaning to the poem itself.
