This I believe reflection

Recently I have written the "This I believe essay" and I am pleasantly surprised on how it  turned out. I usually don't like working on these things but this paper allowed me to express my opinion and views. I think that was my favorite part. Most things we write are scripted and have a strict prompt. This paper allowed me to go in any direction and speak about whatever I wanted. Honestly I enjoyed it and hope more essays are like this.

Hearing voices in writing

Voice in writing is how you want the story or piece to be portrayed. I use voice in writing in most pieces I write. In stories I try to make the narrator sound like they are feeling the emotion that corresponds to the plot. In essays I try to make it sound like I am actually talking or presenting the piece. I feel like in almost all cases I use voice.

Encyclopedia entries

Doctor, tell me the news:
             When I started complaining about being out of breath and tired a lot, the doctor told me I had tachycardia meaning my heart beat way too much. I was put under tests and monitoring for one year. Then they finally preformed surgery on me and I was cured.

Guitar not hero:
              I started playing guitar about 3 years ago. I did it because I wanted to play an instrument I found exciting. I still play today and can barely play a song to save my life.

             I am somewhat of a people person. Meaning I can talk on and on with a person and it will be a blast but I don't really like people. What fascinates me is psychology and how the mind and the person works and thinks. I have always had that curiosity and hope to one day be in that field.
