Jason, I couldn’t agree more with you on the specifics you gave and your topic overall. Discrimination has been a problem for a very long time and over all this time, little progress has been made to fix things. For as long as this stuff has been going on, not much has been done. Thank you for bringing this up and adding to the conversation of…Read More
Did you know that anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States, or 18% of the population? Over the years, anxiety disorders have become a3 Comments
I am fascinated about your post, “Anxiety Disorders,” because it brings more awareness to our society about how many people are conditioned with anxiety disorders. Although I do not have an anxiety disorder, I was able to get an idea of how this affects them on an every day basis.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “…anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States, or 18% of the population.” I think this is significant because it indicates how anxiety disorders are very common yet not everyone knows about this or pays much attention to it in our society.
Another sentence that I found important was: “From the my brief research, I realized that I really care about this topic because all throughout my high school career but more importantly this year, I have dealt with so much anxiety and for the longest time I thought I had some type of anxiety disorder.” This stood out for me because many middle and high schoolers face anxiety, but not many teachers nor adults can cope with those students well.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because spreading awareness about anxiety disorders are important.

Jordan, thank you for sharing this piece. I really like the simplicity of this and how you introduce the very beginning of the novel. Keep up the good work!
Kait commented on the post, Dialect Journal – Huckleberry Finn
Emily, I really like how you talk about Huck’s background, his time briefly living with the widow and his relationship with his father. Our background and roots make up who each of us are as individuals and you raise a lot of good points. I really like where you are going with this. Good job!

I agree with this, when we first picked up the book this opening “notice” was entertaining because I knew that the reason we were reading it was because of the complex plot and big picture. This section does show Twain’s great writing with literary devises.
