further and farther [grammar schmammar]

         Did you there is a different between further and farther. to me I used it any how and any where, didn't really acre about using the wright word for the wright sentence. Grammar schmammar is always the best it put you on the wright part. Farther is used as a comparative of far.you use farther for a distance..use to indicate the extent to which one thing or a person is or becoming distance from another. for example the farther away you are from your home, the better you should behave. you can also you it over a greater expanse of space or time  for a longer way. Further on the other hand is kind of the same has distance. you can say I am going   to college to further my education. further can be use has a verb. Examples are: I refuse to walk one step farther. Another examples is the mountain peak was further away than she expected.

beyound class ( say good night Gracie}

     I take theatre appreciation and we are suppose to watch a play and write a critique for the play. I went to the Virginia repertory theatre to watch "say good night Gracie". the ticket for the play was $38 and was $10 for students. looking at the ticket I thought the play will be awesome but guess what the play was so boring to the point I was dozing off but I try not to sleep because I have to write a critique for it. so the play is basically about Gracie and her comedy show she use to have before she died. the man who is suppose to be the husband of Gracie was the only character on stage narrating the whole story.The play say goodnight Gracie is basically about the life of a Jewish man called George Burns, how he straggles and ended up in a comedy showbiz and meet Gracie Allen. They happen to began in a radio as a comic relief. He fell in love with Gracie and they got married and earn their own show. The audience loves Gracie.  Gracie had a chest problem and died at the hospital. She always ended up the show saying’’ good night’’ to the audience. The theme of the play is basically about Gracie and how funny she was.


      my group had grammar schmammar 7, which was the different between good and well. my group consist of Tiara, Jacob and me.Tiara did all the power point this time, all we had to do is come together as a group to present it in class. well deals with health. good is an adjective and well is adverb. Well is related to health. for example you will say I don't feel well today not I don't feel good today. sometimes we say stuff which is not the correct word but since we are use to saying the wrong word,  it sound normally but when it comes to the writing aspect of it, you have to write the write word. we can say whatever, the wrong English and shorten them but when we are writing it is suppose to be the right word. so looking at good and well, they may mean the same but is actually not the same. for example you cant say Tiara is not feeling good so she didn't make it to class. which some people may say that but is not the right word. you should say tiara is not feeling well so she didn't make it to class.

fall break

the whole off last week, all at I was thinking of was my fall break. I been in school ever since my car broke down on my way for shopping with my room mate. I use to go home every weekend. the school is deadly quiet on weekend so I end up going home. but ever since my car broke down have ben on campus so fall break was the only chance fore me to go home and eat some healthy food. well the very reason I wanted to go home was because I miss home food and I cant wait to go home and eat. I left the school on Wednesday after I was done with my classes. the first thing I did when I got home was to check the food mom got at home. I mad my self some delicious food and ate it all. am not a fat kid but trust me that was how I miss home food. I worked on Thursday and Friday morning, and was suppose to go out on Friday evening with my boo. but for some stupid argument we couldn't make it. I relax my hair on Saturday evening and blow dry it on Sunday morning. my hair is pretty long but it came out more longer after I relax it. my fall break was fun.

grammar schammar

 today in english, the grammar schmammar group three had their presentation. they were in  a group of five people. I think they have many people in their group but all the same the presentation was the best presentation so far from the other two group. I was part of group two but it was a little bit messy but I guess is going to be ok in the next presentation we got. they did a presentation on commas an they had a power point on it. the most interesting part of it was the group had candy for the class. whoever had the right answer to the example they got u get a candy for that, and that made every one participate in the class.  after that we discussed about movie posters. how the nature of the poster makes you wonna watch the movie so bad. it was interesting and fun. we used the other 20 minute we got to work on our blogs and that's what I just did.
