Title: Pip

Pip, a young little pup

applies to Canine University to learn the ways of being a guide dog

however, the journey is not so easy as it seems

for that little pip may experience some issues along the way

his small stature being the big one of them all

 

Pip’s first-hand experiences aren’t the brightest

while tasks seem simple for the other trainees’

little pip struggles with even the simplest of tasks

 

little pip seems discouraged

whilst everyone else is having no problem with their lessons

little pip seems to get everything wrong

however, that won’t stop him from trying

 

instead of going with the norm, pip decides to do things his way

and things start lighting up for little pip

though it’s short-lived

one mess up and it’s all over for little pip

believes that maybe he’s not fit to be a guide dog

as he drags himself off the academy

that is until he sees someone who is in need of help

helping her guide her way back to safety

his heroic act will not go unnoticed

as he is gladly reaccepted into the academy

with open arms and a sense of accomplishment

Fahrenheit 451 Reflection

For this presentation, my role was the Vocabulary Enricher, I had to find vocabulary/expressions that are relevant throughout our section (Pg. 54-62) of the book and explain what those vocab/expressions has to do with our section. I was assigned with a group of 5, and our group decided one person would take 2 roles while the rest would take 1. I was present for all the days during the project, making sure I stayed true with my role and taking advice from other group members on how to improve on my section.

Blog Post #2: Article – How to be more Resilient

The author of this article talks about the mental Resilience and whether its something were born with, or something we acquire later in life. His article then goes to talk about how brain activity has a part in mental resilience; how high levels of functionality in the central executive network in the brain can lead to better cardiac and metabolic health than those with low levels of activity. After reading this article, it made me wonder what actions i should take in-order to live a better and happier life, and though not all my actions will guarantee happiness or more resilience, I should still have an open mind rather than try to exclude myself from new things.
