Johnny Cyberpunk

This short story by William Gibson is about a guy who has put a data system in his head and it lands him in trouble and realizes that he needs to take the data out of his head because it doesn't lead to good situations. This short story is postmodernist because it blends non fiction with fiction. The shirt story is cyberpunk because it uses science fiction to mix high tech and low life. 

Best of American Lit

I myself feel like this year I really got to understand more of the concept of collaborative thinking and using the Internet to show more and learn more. I feel like this year I was able to understand essay writing and do a good job on them when I fully understand the topic. I feel like I was able to practice something that a the other English classes weren't able to go over.

My Review of The Great Gatsby Movie

This weekend I went to see the movie The Great Gatsby with my mom and sister. The movie was very helpful for my understanding of the book. The movie was full of like and captured everyone's personality way better then I was able to with the reading. In my opinion being able to see a visualize to the characters in the story I'm reading lets me understanding way better. I would definitely recommend anyone who was thinking of seeing the movie definitely should.
