mon premiére jour en école française. genly est le professeur. il est philippin. il parle les langues anglais, français, latin, greek, et un peu de japonais. il déjà visité les pays de france, italy, greece, et canada (et peut-etre plusieur). he was first an expert in latin. j'ai trois classmates. ils sont vanessa, meek, et virgilia. i already knew most of what we covered. we studied declension for nouns and conjugations for verbs. definite articles. indefinite articles. subject pronouns. and basic salutations. i was as excited about the subject as much as learning it with other people. we were feeding off from each others enthusiasm.
the simple life tv series. i didnt know rich people could be that naive. shallow yes from having heard from a few. but stupid? youd think they have gone the best education available.
during the evaluation period, we were asked to jot down how we did the past year (impression). self evaluation. most of it were in essay. for example. are you committed to the company? then we're required to fill in at the base minimum some guided response. in these cases, i wanted to appear modest because that was what i would look for if i were the manager. i used the third person replacing all the i's into we's which i thought was going to help. three weeks later, i got called in by the manager and he wasnt happy with what i wrote it. he failed to see the subtlety of using the third person. and had me replace my changes back to i's. i hated it because then i sounded like those sorry people who felt the need to brag about their successes (remember that slut/bitch). anyway, i looked it up and i was right in using the third person because it gives out crispier sentences. the downside is, it could become preachy. which was another thing i was trying to avoid.
