Group 2 Section 14

Today in class we got to know each others names, we discussed fraternity/sorority life, and how to use the "Runs" system. 


  1. Thanks, John, for posting this stub-summary of your group's first meeting. I hope all the other 11 authors selected on Wednesday and Thursday will follow suit quickly. Again, in the future we'll all do this IN class during the last 10 minutes, and authors can then go home and edit, expand, polish etc.

    Everybody who was not selected as the day's author should now find your group's post before next class, click "comment," and post your FQs, DQs, links, etc. pertaining to the "Next" assignment.

    But remember to have a happy holiday weekend while you're at it!

    Link: http://thisibelieve.org/essay/16702/ I enjoyed this essay because it shows that even without some of the things that other people take for granted, such as sight and hearing, you can still be happy and have a positive outlook on life.
