So Near, So Bad?

August 20, 2011

“So, you were just hiding in level 1, huh?”

What if Mario used the idea of “outlining?” Was there a chance he could’ve found Princess at the starting round? Oh, poor, poor Mario. If he had just planned first to look for more unfamiliar places on the 1st level, he could’ve finished the game instantly! Guess that same aspect goes for what Eng 1 discussed last Wednesday, August 16th: outlining. Not only that it gives clearance to the flow of ideas in a given set of system, but also it points out details helpful for understanding concepts on what these ideas are all about.

Now, to tell you honestly, this blog isn’t really focused on talking about what an outline is. This blog is actually meant for writing a blog about how I encountered UP life so far, and so without further ado, I give you my outline! Clap for it please before anything might go wrong? 🙂
