As you grow into who you will become, sometimes it is wise to look back on your life and reflect on things you've done, things you want to do, and things you'd change or keep the same.
While you're still young, now is the opportune time to make mistakes because at this stage in your life, most of them can be corrected. Whether it's in your personal life, school life, work life or relationships with people, you want to always strive to do your best and not blatantly be a sore.
You are in the exact place in your life where you want to pause, look at how your life is going and make plans on how to proceed. This is also the time to assess what kind of person you are. Do you give up easily? Do you look at mistakes as just that, then move forward as you correct them? Or, are you the kind of person who blames everyone and life for all the things that have gone wrong in your life?
Now is the time to look at the person in the mirror, and while you're young, reflect and decide how you will adjust moving forward. Your adjustments may be to stay the same, continue to improve, or make a total makeover of your actions and life as it is so far. Either way, it's not too late until you wake up one morning and know that some mistakes you've made have completely changed your life in such a way that it's too late to change.
Comment on the following prompt: Discuss any regrets that you might have about this school semester and also what you will do to adjust moving forward.
INCLUDE: First initial AND last name AND class period.
You MUST respond to at least TWO other posts from any student. Your replies cannot be identical comments on different posts and posting shallow comments such as "I agree" or "I disagree" will earn you a zero. Make sure your reply addresses the comment that you are responding to.
Be sure to--
CAUTION!! Do NOT embarrass me, yourself, your class, the English department, the school or your parents with tasteless, meaningless comments. This is for a grade.

Mixed Ink is our class blog, the window into our souls. It was designed to improve students' writing, critical thinking and communication skills by giving them a platform to provide meaningful content based on their interpretation of what they see.
Although the students receive a grade based on a rubric for completing this assignment, they are not graded on complexity of thought. This is a place where students of all levels can freely, confidently and creatively express themselves and their opinions in a nonjudgmental platform. They are required to respond to and critique each other, but degradation, slander, lewdness, etc., will not be tolerated.
All subjects are vital to learning, but English is the bridge of communication. So let's build the arch, one word at a time...
