I really did enjoy my English 111 class and teacher this semester. Paul Gasparo is a great person and nice teacher. I just wish I knew this class was going to be more of a computer base class. To anybody that is not a computer geek, maybe you should take ITE 115 first. You will be sending your assignments through emails and receiving emails from Paul about your assignments. I was okay with the emailing part of the class, the assignments that I dislike the most was the power point presentation. You have to speak in front of the class and I was not okay with that. Paul ways of teaching is different from most teachers I have ever had. Not to say his teaching is not a good way. But not everybody learn the same. Paul method of teaching is to make you try and figure it out on your on. Not to say he will not try to help you if you have a problem, he never answer you question directly mostly indirectly.This is okay sometimes if you understand the assignment, or have some kind of idea how to get started on the assignment. You are told where you can find thing and it’s up to you to find. One of the activities I like was the peer view were your classmates review your work and tell you what changes need to be done. I would take Paul class again he really pushed me to work hard because it was like I was working on my own and teaching myself as I was going. So you truly get the grade you deserved.

Super Trips

When my dream came true, and I woke up with ability to move like the speed of lighting. I really did not know what to do. I always knew I wanted to travel, so I sat my mind at seeing the world.
Before I got caught and being locked up in this place I am now. I took a trip to New York and Vegas. I stayed in both places for about a week. I had so much fun when I was in New York. I lived my life like a city girl. It is true what they say about the big city, the city does not sleep. I spend my days shopping and my nights partying. I did not know anybody in New York, but I found out that money talks. When I was out partying at night I would pick pocketed all the males in the clubs, and spend there money in the morning shopping. The guys never suspected me, they did even know I had move. Each morning I would get a call telling that my cab with here. My taxi driver would take me to well known streets, so I could shop. I would spend some money, but I would also take what I like and if it was over price. Then New York started getting boring to me so I knew it was time to leave before I would do something silly.

When I arrive in Vegas it was dark and I though it was going to be a lot like New York, but it was not. There were so many casinos, and I wanted to go to every one of them. I never gamble before so I spend my first night learning all the different kinds of card games. My next day I was ready to have some fun. I map out my days, I plan which casino I was going to hit and how long I would spend in there. It was finally time to use my super powers to get rich. I started with the Royal Casino I sat at the table moving around as fast as I could looking at my player cards with out them even knowing. Within thirty minutes I had won over a thousand dollars. You know what they say money is the root of all evil. I wanted to see how much money I could get in one day. All I could see was green. That night I had gone to four different casinos and had made twenty thousand dollars. The next day I started early, I skip breakfast and made my way to the casino, sat at my first table and got start by six hand I was started feeling very tired, did not understand what was going on. I trying moving at lighting speed but could not, when I look at myself I was standing behind one of the players trying to peek at their hand she started yelling “you are cheating”, security look over at me and I start to run. But I can not use my powers because I skip on breakfast so I have no fuel to burn. I run out of the casino, and I notice I am not being chase anymore. So I stop running and go grab a bite to eat. While eating I decide that was enough excitement for me and decide it was time to go home.

When I got home there was a man waiting for me and he start yelling at me that he seen me, and that he knows I have super powers. He also told me if I did not rob these banks and bring him money that he would let the world know about me. I called the man crazy and ran off. Little did I know that this man follow me home and he would have the T.V reporters, scientist, and police at my door in the morning. Now I am over here at a dislocation expiring away.

Diagnostic Essay: Super Powers

29 August 2009

Never in my wildest dreams would I ever think that something so amazing could happen to me. You only see or hear about people with special abilities or superpowers in movies and books. And you think to yourself if I only could have those abilities and you stop to think about all the things you would do with them. Never thinking about all the problems these superpowers could cause.

It was a Friday morning nothing was different about that morning that I could remember. Got out of bed and started my usual morning routine; shower, brush my teeth, and fix myself some breakfast. There were no signs that something had happen to me over night. On Friday’s I do not have to work so I always sit at my bay window, eat my breakfast, and think about what I am going to do for the day. While eating breakfast nothing came to mind, so I decide to go to the park for a little excise. I went and put my dishes in the dishwasher and put some clothes on and head to the park. When I got to the park I started off with a light jog then built my way up to a nice running pace. While running I notice that I was moving very fast, and the thing around me did not look like they were moving at all, so I stop and I notice that I never seen this place before. How did I get here I ask myself but I had no idea. How was I going to get back home? Just then an idea pop into my head I will try running the opposite way and see what will happen. When I stop running I look around I was back at the park. I look at my watch and I notice that only two minutes had past. I walk to my apartment and sit down and think what just happen to me. How can I move that fast? I do not know but what I do know is that I can move as fast as lighting. A weird smile came across my face, and then an idea came to my mind I will travel I will go to places I always wanted to go like New York and Vegas. I pack something’s I knew I was going to need like money, credit cards, cell phone and my driver's license. When I got back to the park there were a lot of people at the park, so I tried to find a place where I did not see anybody and I just started running. I make it to New York and Vegas and had a great time. I went back to the place where I came in at and started running so I could get back to the park. When I got back to the park it was dark, but I could see a man in front of me I thought he was sleep but he was not. He came up to me and said, “I have been waiting for you to come back I knew I was not crazy I saw you running and then you disappear.” I ask him, “what do you want from me?” He then went on to tell me he wanted me to steal money and if I do not do it then he would let everyone know my secret. I decide not to help him. I left the man standing there and went home and lock my self in my apartment. The next morning I got up and turned the T.V on and there was a picture of me on it. Then I hear a knock on my door but I did not answer, but they did not go away the kept on knocking until they knock the down. These people were dressed in all black, and told me I had to come with them. They bought me to this white build where they started running all these test on me. They told me they would not stop until I told them where the source of my powers came from. I told them everything I knew but they did not believe me.

That man from the park got T.V time and his money for selling picture of me. And I got nothing but to be locked up like a cage animal. Superpower or abilities whatever you want to call them are great when you can use them. I only used my powers one time and I have been lock up every since then. I do not know if I will ever get out of here, but when I do I will not be using this special ability any more.
