Socials DoL #1: Significant Object

INQUIRY QUESTION What is the story of my great-grandmother’s “sunhat”? I had a hard time finding a significant object, as most things I own that are personally significant aren’t particularly historically significant. After talking to my aunt, however, I chose a hat that was owned by my great-grandmother. I never got the chance to meet her, as she passed away before I was born, but I was able to visit her old..

I’ve reached out to a bunch of different people through email, but have not received.. Read More

For this assignment, we were asked to choose a character in Romeo and Juliet, and take the 16 Personalities test in their point of view. I chose Juliet, as I believe she’s a beautiful character and her personality is quite complex. According to the test (this obviously isn’t 100% correct because it’s based on my own interpretation), Juliet is a INFJ-T, or an “Advocate”. A brief description of INFJ-T’s: they are introverted, intuitive,.. Read More
