Ruined for Life: Phoenix Edition

The most hilarious, smart sitcom I’ve seen in a long time is the BBC’sOutnumbered. Each week the parents Pete and Sue valiantly try to survive the chaos inherent in raising precocious children: Jake, Ben and Karen. The plots are loose and the dialog brilliant. Like Curb Your Enthusiasm, much of the dialog is improvised, which is probably why what the kids say seems so real, unlike the average show where the jokes are clearly written by 27 year olds and mouthed by 7 year olds.

The great value since September is art. I like art and I want to learn more about art, so when I have this class, I felt very exciting. In this art class, I know many interesting artwork and artist. How amazing they thought, how surprise they mark. Every time after I watch art video, I felt unbelievable. I need to learn art because I want to be a designer, art is basic in design. The other class is vocabulary class, I learn and remember many words in this class, once a week take a quiz is good for me.

For example, when I need to play a song on important festival, I must cut the song accurate, so I do this work all day, when I want to give up, I told myself, this is important work, you have to do that and everyone need you to do that. That’s why I can persist to do.

I think I have learned a lot in Susan’s class, Biology class and also the TOEFL class. First, I have learned a lot about the writing skill and how to be well prepared before I go to college. Second, I learn some knowledge that I didn’t familiar before. In TOEFL writing class, even though the class is just make sure we get ready for the TOEFL test, but the teacher truly taught us few amazing skill to write some good essay.
