Excerpt #1:
  
I never wanted to bacome a writer, but when I decided on a career in sales, I found out that being able to write was a skill that would help me. So much of my daily work involved Writing that I sometimes thought i’d fallen asleep and woken up in someone else’s life. Messages, about actual sales, were the least of it. In order to attract customers, I have to send notes to people I already knew, asking them for sales leads. Then when I got a lead, I’ld write to the contact asking for a few munutes of their time.If I got to meet with them or even have a phote conversation, my next task was to write them a thank—you not. Oh, and the reports-I was always filing out reports; for my sales manager, tracking my progress with each customer and each lead. If someone had tell me how much writing sails would involve, I think I would of paid more attention to my writing courses en school.

Excerpt #3

My favorite book is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, he was born in 1894 and died in 1963. Written in 1931. A futuristic society where humans are born out of test tubes and kept in rigid social classes. This may not seem like a humorous premise for a novel, but Huxley uses satire, which is a type of humor that is used to make a serious point. The humans in Brave New World learn through sleep teaching, Huxley calls this “hypnopedia”. Everyone is kept “happy” in the brave new world by taking a pill called soma, there is one character named John the Savage who does not take soma. because he comes from a different part of the world where there is no technology, and he believes in natural ways of living. It turns out that John has a big problem with the brave new world and how people live there. Will he be able to survive living there, well you will have to read the novel to find out. Brave New World is considered a classic in English literature, it is one of the best novels I have ever read.

Excerpt #4

The original United States Declaration of Independence sets in a case at the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom as part of the National Archives in Washington, DC. Since 1952, over one million visitors each year of passed through the Rotunda too snap a photograph to capture they’re experience. Although signs state, “No Flash Photography,” forgetful tourists leave the flash on, an a bright light flickers for just a millisecond. This millisecond of light may not seem like enough to effect the precious document, but supposed how much light could be generated when all those milliseconds are added up. According to the National Archives administrators, its enough to significantly damage the historic document. So, now, the signs display quit a different message: “No Photography.” Visitors continue to travel to see the Declaration that began are country, but know longer can personal pictures serve as mementos. The administrators’ compromise, they say, is a visit to the gift shop for a preprinted photograph.
