The Grammar Monster and Me[INTRIGUING TITLE.]
[DON’T NEED THIS EXTRA LINE.] Since the very beginning of my days as a student, I have despised literature. English has always been a subject that I dreaded. I do not loathe literature solely for my lack of writing skills, because I do enjoy reading, rather it’s the fact that I tend to lose my train of thought while writing an essay or while brainstorming an idea I want to address. I struggle with organizing my thoughts and making concise relationsHIPS[?][CONNECTIONS?] between literary texts and the assignments given by my teachers. The only time I do enjoy writing is when I can write freely in my journal. By writing in a journal, I do not worry about the grammar and organized aspect of writingCOMMA and it clears my mind. I find that I am able to write what I feel [easier ]MORE EASILY in my private journal versus writing an essay that will be graded. [NICE INTRO – CONTRARY TO YOUR TITLE, THIS SEEMS AS THOUGH IT’S GOING TO BE ABOUT YOUR JOURNAL WRITING VS. ACADEMIC WRITING, NOT GRAMMAR? ALSO, YOU NEED TO GET RID OF THIS EXTRA LINE BETWEEN PARAGRAPHS.] During [my ]seventh grade, in middle school, I had a very tough English teacher. Mrs. Carson was a very nice person outside of class[,]SEMI-COLON howeverCOMMA her toughness really displayed itself when she graded papers. Her main focus[ed] was grammar and clean organization rather than THE ideas of the topic. The entire year I struggled with her; each assignment I struggled to form my papers the way she would want and failed to remember the grammar rules and writing standards. One assignment I can remember clearly, to this day, and I will never forgetCOMMA was the combined research paper for MY English and History classes. Our assignment was to research a period in history and write in depth about the subject[;]COLON why it happened, what was the purpose and how did it...

...During my younger years, we travelled a lot. Though I was born in Manila in 1995, most of my childhood memories lie within the realm of Palawan. I was around 2 years old when we sort of migrated to the province. My parents are both from Manila. But circumstances led us to Palawan where we stayed for almost 10 years. Within the province itself, we had to transfer to other sites for seven times. So by the time I reached 12, I felt that I had been all around. Around Palawan, at least. But don’t get me wrong. Palawan is nice and clean. I enjoyed life there, except for the water supply and electricity that came only a few hours a day. But we were provided with provisions to cope up. We had rechargeable lights and fans. We had a never ending supply of bottled water. We had the means to have things delivered to us from the city. Mind you, the city of Puerto Princesa is some 10 hours trip on a rough road from the place which we stayed the longest. Trip to the city was once a day, unless you want to go by sea, in a pumpboat for at least 5 hours, depending on the height of the waves. My sister and I grew up with nature. Looking back, our pets were the farm animals. My father is a real animal lover. Cows and carabaos were all over. It felt good to hear the goat’s noise…, to give water to the chicken, to chase the ducklings and to feed the pig. Other than our very loyal dog Jaguar, we even had baby monkeys and exotic pets like the squirrel, bat, the eagle, and the owl we all...

...To really understand the significance of how the military has molded me into the Sailor that I am today, I must reveal first some insight into the person I was before I left for basic training. When I graduated from high school in 2000 I was indestructibly ready to take on anything that came my way. I had managed to have had a somewhat decent unsheltered life in that my parents provided a warm and loving environment for my siblings and myself. We experienced all of the normal trials and tribulations as any of the other kids that grew up in the neighborhood with us. After graduating from high school in South Eastern Georgia, I wanted to get out of the small town of Sylvania and go see the world. I had originally planned to take a year or so off to figure out exactly what it was that I wanted to do with my life. My dad did not like that at all, but my mother was super excited. After being out of school for just a few months I began to get bored with bouncing from city to city. What was I going to do? Then right out of the blue it came to me. I wanted to see the world not just the cities on my bucket list. So I decided to go see a Navy recruiter. I swear that recruiter must have seen me coming from a mile away! I did not have the first clue of what I was doing, and the only thing that I can remember about this guy was that he did not look like Navy material and his last name was Rudolf like the reindeer. So as I begin to sign my life away to the Navy panic began to...

Bloodlines of the Illuminati

...Bloodlines of Illuminati by: Fritz Springmeier, 1995 Introduction: I am pleased & honored to present this book to those in the world who love the truth. This is a book for lovers of the Truth. This is a book for those who are already familiar with my past writings. An Illuminati Grand Master once said that the world is a stage and we are all actors. Of course this was not an original thought, but it certainly is a way of describing the Illuminati view of how the world works. The people of the world are an audience to which the Illuminati entertain with propaganda. Just one of the thousands of recent examples of this type of acting done for the public was President Bill Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union address. The speech was designed to push all of the warm fuzzy buttons of his listening audience that he could. All the green lights for acceptance were systematically pushed by the President’s speech with the help of a controlled congressional audience. The truth on the other hand doesn’t always tickle the ear and warm the ego of its listeners. The light of truth in this book will be too bright for some people who will want to return to the safe comfort of their darkness. I am not a conspiracy theorist. I deal with real facts, not theory. Some of the people I write about, I have met. Some of the people I expose are alive and very dangerous. The darkness has never liked the light. Yet, many of the secrets of the Illuminati are locked up tightly simply because secrecy is a......
