It's been a handful of days since I actually did a post. The month is ending soon and June will be here soon. You better enjoy every moment of the summer you can. They say time flies when you are having fun. In this post, I will give a commentary or remarks on the articles that I shared this week.
As you can see from previous posts, I have read a few good and interesting articles both from magazines and online news. They are among the other random articles that I read through the week. I can't say that the article on the Buket guy was a random act of kindness, but random acts of graffiti. It is interesting how daring he marked his signature on public transportation? Also, he decided to do a little decoration on the overpass. I don't think I am brave enough to go that far with my artistic skills that I lack. I am impressed with this type of art work to an extent. After all he vandalized property and is now facing the consequences. This could be a hobby for Buket or public property is his form of pen and paper.
In one of the articles that I found worth reading in the first place , plus it talked about college education, comes from June's issue of the Atlantic Monthly. I only shared portion of the article, but I found it fascinating in the way that the professor who wrote the article shared with the readers that a college education is not for everyone. If it is not for everyone, then who is to have a college education? The writer talks about his perspective of teaching two English Composition courses. In my opinion, he talks about how one student lacks the requisite skills that are needed for the course. It generally a good idea to go straight into college during after high school so that you will have a continuing education without really having the worry of forgetting certain concepts. I'm not bashing older adults who want to go back to school after years of graduating high school, but there is a point where you should want to go back before you reach that age of being too old of returning to college. Getting a degree is easy for most and sometimes hard for others. You can also start with a community college and transfer to a university. It's all about the choices that you make that will change the smallest detail in your life.
I didn't provide a link to the rest of the article on procrastination. Procrastination is not a good excuse to tell your boss or teacher if you have a report that is due or a big paper that you are putting off until the last minute. I think the article says it all. Though the entire article is not posted, it is a nice article to read and you could learn something from it. Instead of putting the "to do" list on the back burner, you should actually complete the items that you have to do that is on the list. I even procrastinate during my first year of college. I still procrastinate with the tasks I should be doing rather than just thinking about doing them. Thinking about doing a paper, house chore, or any other task is not going to get completed that way. We have to get off out lazy butt for a day and force ourselves to do something we intend to do, but we just are lazy! If you don't feel like doing anything it can be consider being lazy. Laziness and procrastination are two different things. I don't have much else to say on this subject. The word speaks for itself.
On a personally note, I have been thinking about my changing my major. However, I wouldn't know what other major I would choose. I would mostly like stay an English major and have a minor or two. With this said, I have to keep these factors in mind as I start my second year this fall. College students, especially in their first two years, should find a major and stick with that one major since it will be difficult to change once they start the classes beyond the chosen degree.
