During this first week of school we did many group activities. I believe the purpose of all the activities was to engage all students and break the ice. The activities that were done consisted of wild voices and noises, listening to others, opening up to others, interviewing classmates, joining write club, creating and listening to slam poetry. Out of all of the novel activities my favorite was doing the interview, because I saw a side of someone I never thought exisited. I found a new friend in someone I thought I knew.
Some advice I would have for the creative Dr. P is that I greatly enjoy writing daily and just getting raw ideas out there. I feel confident as a writer but I do want to take my writing to the next level. Honestly I have no idea how to get to the next level, so I would like some help with that. I have a love hate relationship with writing. Writing to me is an art that I can express myself in ways I can't say, but at times it's the hardest task I could do. Also I did slam poetry last year and I feel like I'm reliving last year; I am just worried I might not grow academically through this project.
I would love to grow in my writing abilities; for instance, I would enjoy writing different types of papers. I need more practice in my vocabulary and flow of my writing pieces. I know I also need more practice getting out all my ideas, because I stifle my own creativity by holding back.
