Journal Question #5

Ok All, a few of your fellow students asked me in advance what the next topic would be and they weren't too thrilled. Because they were good students and because I'm (generally) a nice person I'll let you choose from three different options for your last blogger.  The first two were suggestions from one of your classmates and then from Lucas Dickerson. 
(P.S. Send me your
 Bowling Pictures!!!!) 

Option # 1 (Given to you 
from a classmate)

What is the most surprising thing that has ever happened to you? Has there been a huge coincidence that has happened that has made you shocked? Like I used to know a family when I was a child that had 5 children. All 5 children were born in the same hospital 
as me. That doesn't seem too shocking but we met in McHenry, IL (near Chicago) and we all were born in Balboa Hospital in San Diego, California! Also, the hospital I was born in is now a Museum! It was a pretty building! (It's the one in the background of this picture). Personally, I don't believe in coincidences, but this is an example of the type of story you might want to tell. 

Option #2 (Given to you by Lucas D.) 

In the US there is a popular "debate" among teenagers that is really rather silly, but it's fun to talk about. "Who would win in a fight; Pirates or Ninjas?" This seems silly but it's a real debate that goes on in the recesses of the internet. Why? Because they can and it's fun. I recently saw a commercial for a TV show that simulates duals between all of the different warriors of the world. This week was for a Ninja verses a Spartan. So if you want to create your own pair of warriors to compare then by all means, feel free to describe how you think a fight between the two would go. (In all honesty I think Samurai trump all). 
Here are some links that reference this "debate":  (beware the pictures, some are risque)
And the Show I was talking about:

Option #3 (What I was originally going to ask you all. I thought it was easy.) 

What is/was your major and why do you want to study it? I started out college with one major, Journalism, and I have slowly shifted to another; Linguistics. College has been a long journey for me, but it’s pretty much over for me. I have graduated and now I get to go and face the “real world.” For a little bit though, I plan to go to Grad School in about 2 years, but plans can change. You never know what will happen! So, tell me about your College journey. Are you just beginning it? Have you recently finished it? Have you been out of school for a long time? I’d like to know what you studied and why your chose it. It’s always good to think about why you set out on this journey of schooling. If you forget the reasons for something it becomes meaningless. 

I don't care which ones you choose. I think the first two are more interesting, but have fun and be creative with whatever you write! This is my last one of the last semester that I have as a student here in Carbondale!!!! Wish me off with something fun to read! 

Due 4/27 at 5pm! 10 SENTENCES for EAP1 and 20 SENTENCES for EAP2. Pictures desired.
