I honestly hated writing the Boyle paper, it really confused me. I thought the personal narrative was easier to write. I just felt like I kept bullshitting the Boyle paper and I think I kept switching in and out of theme and compare and contrast. But I felt like you had to mention the themes for the comparison. It was just all a big mess for me. I used the tools you gave us on how to quote and explanations and observations but it was just not fun for me. It probably shows. Honestly I am a biker girl in your class for today. I hope it at least looks like I am so you aren't like what the heck is she. But last night some guy knew exactly who I was so I have a feeling you'll be able to know too. It's honestly a little cold outside and all I want to do is lay in bed and watch Halloween on re run. Or Friday the 13th but I don't think they would play that today seeing it's not the 13th, but it is Friday. Actually yesterday night I slept at my brother's house in the grid and my kind of boyfriend sorta called and asked me to come over but I had class at 9:30 that I was walking to but I hadn't been to that class in like two weeks and the only reason I was going is because there was a quiz that was due and I actually went to a lot of trouble to get it but anyways, so I got to that class at 9:20, gave my quiz to some random who sits in front of me, I should have mentioned it's a class of 100, and I left for the hill. I got to the hill and went to my room in Jones and freshened up because I had worked up quite the sweat from the grid to Flanagan to the hill. So as soon as I got ready I walked over to his dorm, Scott, which is two dorms down from mine. He just got a tv in his room and I asked him to see what was on AMC because they play all the scary movies during Halloween and the actual Halloween movie was on which is such a classic so I had to watch it and uh it was so good. Well I had personal finance at 11 which I've never missed because you can only have two absences and we were talking about cars which I kind of wanted to go to but it was in Jenkins and the semester is almost over so I mean why not? And I stayed and watched the next two Halloween's before leaving to get the rest of my second costume which didn't even work out so I'll just be Beyonce on Saturday because we aren't really supposed to go out tonight because of our sorority. We are the only sorority with sober driver and this girl complained so this is the first time DZ hasn't had sober driver but we still have to stay in so older sisters don't kick our ass.

    BOO! How did writing your Boyle paper differ from writing your personal narrative? Which one did you find easier to write? What do you feel were the strengths of your Boyle paper? Weaknesses?

      Writing my Boyle paper started off really hard. The term literary analysis is super scary for some reason so I was unsure how to start the paper and what needed to be in it. It took more thought and... more

      The Boyle paper differed from writing the personal narrative in many ways. One reason is because the Boyle stories already had themes in theme, so after going over it in class it was pretty easy to... more
