“The Great Tri-State Tornado” Geography Essay

This is a research essay written for my grade 12 geography course. The subject has to be some sort of famous weather event. The essay has to be written in “university” style, my geo teacher said. This means the essay has to have a rigid structure, be about 1500 words long, with a full bibliography and proper citations. I did my essay on a devastating tornado in the 1920s. This is probably the longest essay I have ever written, and I heard that there’ll be a lot more of these in university. Damn! I admit that this essay is a bit of a bore and is not as humourous as my other works, but this is a different type of writing. I had about two months to complete this essay, and I had the teacher check my drafts many times, so of course I got an A, and so did most of my class. Oh, if you have been assigned this essay, as my teacher and some of his friends undoubtedly will assign in the next few years, you are welcome to look at my essay for some hints and pointers, but don’t copy word for word, since you’ll probably get caught. If you get caught, it’s not my fault. So here is the essay. If you want to waste a few minutes of you life (just kidding), please read on.

“The Taming of the Shrew” Film Adaptations

Woo hoo, something to do with Shakespeare. This is a response I wrote comparing two film versions of the Shakespearean play, The Taming of the Shrew, to each other and to the original text. Personally, I don’t like Shakespeare at all, but they are always taught in English classes, so there’s not much I can do about it. As with all schoolwork articles on my site, I got a good mark for this response.

Movie Review: “Of Mice and Men” (1992)

Okay, I know nobody reads these reviews anyways, but I’ll put them up just for fun. This movie review was actually written for my English class, and not for film class. I got a fairly good mark on this assignment. The review is on a film adaptation of the famous John Steinbeck novel of the same title. It’s not a very interesting film, but it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever seen.

“Miss Brill” Short Story Response

This is an response for the short story Miss Brill, which I have studied in English class. The response is sort of an analysis on how the story was written. I tries to explain why the author chose this perspective to write the story. I did pretty well on this assignment, so that’s why I chose to post it up. I do realize that a lot of people might also study this short story. Remember, you can read this response for hints, but don’t copy word for word.

“Youths of Tomorrow” In Class Essay

This article is an in class essay I wrote during a grade 12 English class. The teacher gave us a quotation and we had write a structured essay that has something to do with the quote. We had to hand the essay in at the end of the class and we had very limited resources, so I just BSed everything. The result was I got a near perfect score on this essay. It’s a pretty big improvement over my first in class essay, which was not all that well written. I sort of knew I would get a pretty decent mark since even though the whole essay was all bs, it was good bs, so the teacher bought it. Haha. The first little section below is the quote that was given and below that is the essay.

My Experience: Upgrading My Computer

As I have promised, here is an article about my computer upgrading experience. I bought all the components on a Boxing Day sale and spent about two hours working on my computer to make it what it is today. Benchmarks and other test results are obviously included. Even thought I didn’t have a particularly pleasant experience doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t personally upgrade your computer.

“Everyone Talked Loudly in Chinatown” Short Story Response

This is another article that once was an assignment for school. This particular article came from my grade 12 English class, where I had to read this short story, Everyone Talked Loudly in Chinatown, and do a response essay on a chosen few aspects of this story. I chose the conflicts in the story and of course I got a pretty good mark for my work. For those who are reading this essay in order to respond a schoolwork question (since this short story is part of some curricula), feel free to integrate my ideas into your response, but don’t copy this essay word for word without giving credit, since that would be plagiarism. It doesn’t do me any harm for you to copy it, but you might get an zero or other punishments if your teacher catches you. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Movie Review: “Dead Presidents” (1995)

As some of you know (my fellow students), I took a film class in my grade 12 year so I had to write movie reviews as assignments. This was my first movie review of the year, and I got an A on this assignment. I only put my better efforts on my website. I got my good mark by writing in “technical” movie language as the teacher wanted. Anyways, this review is about some obscure film that came out in the mid nineties about the Vietnam War and black people in America. My teacher made me watch obscure films such as this one so this is the review that you will get. Hope you enjoy it. You’ll probably understand my review better if you’ve watched this film. For those of you who haven’t watched this movie, don’t bother trying to rent it since the movie isn’t worth the money anyways.
