This week, we learned many things. From reading very hard articles, to some kind of easy to understand, to going to the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD). In all honesty, reading the article Diving up the Brain because it was easy to read and I was happy I could understand so much. On Wednesday I showed my friends my annotations on the article, and they were surprised because I annotated so much. They were saying things like, “You actually liked reading it?, You wrote so much..” This reading helped me understand so much more about my brain, and about my The Power Within Story. I wish I had read this when I was writing my personal narrative. I was able to make greater connections and understand even more why the even that I wrote about affected me in the way it did. I’m kind of upset I didn’t read this article before because I know this could’ve made my biological connection stronger.
This week we also started our social topics. This is a project in which we’ll create zines advocating for a social justice topic. Right away I knew mine was going to be Body Image. This is not only a problem I’ve faced, but also the most important woman in my life, my mother. I am very passionate and excited to dig deeper in this project. I want to help my mother, friends, and many people this way.
