Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

Why do we write?

Inactive
Aalaysia T.
Answer:

We write for education. We write for documentation. We write for entertainment. We write sometimes for our survival. We write sometimes for companionship. We write when we have to, and then sometimes, when we don't. We write because to write, for some, is to breathe. I can't speak for all who write. That would be like trying to vocalize for harmony within the entire country. Something it seems that can't be done. For this, is also why we write. To heal, and to inspire change. We write to influence the world, and to express our placement within it. We write to make sense of things, and then to confuse them all the more. We do it to be vulnerable and honest. We do it to believe in something. To believe, in anything. To believe in...ourselves. We write and we continue to do so because writing is how we make a mark.

Subject: English

Question:

What does English mean to you?

Answer:

Many possibilities. Infinite opportunity. English, to me, is more than reading, and more than writing. English is an art form, and a lifestyle. English is the lenses to the way I see the world. The way I process and understand the life I live, and those around me, is through my appreciation of this art form. English means traveling; Many worlds, many lives. English is time-traveling through space, and time; and pushing the limitations of gravity, and humanity. It is growth, and healing. It is learning, questioning, discovering. It means being confused, and then enlightened. It means being angered, and then inspired. It means feeling helpless, and then, suddenly, all the more powerful. English does mean reading and writing, and it is because of this reading, and this writing, that I was able to see the world around me as being lively and beautiful, and dark, and twisted, and completely worth living. English is reading and writing, but it is also so much more. It means more, of everything. English means getting everything out of this life.

Subject: Communication

TutorMe
Question:

Communication is one of the most basic functions a human can possess. Communication can be complex and multi-layered. It knows no bounds, and no limitations. We communicate in our everyday life, verbally, and non verbally. Believe it or not, non verbal communication is the most common form. Why might this be? List two-three examples of communication that are not verbal.

Answer:

Non-verbal communication is the most common form of communication because there is less opportunity for us to filter ourselves through body language. With speech, we are able to think cognitively, and somewhat work through the things we want to convey, and chose how to do so. With non verbal communication, the luxury of sorting out our thoughts is not as common. Two types of communication that aren't verbal is body language, and, the second, which is tied exclusively with speech, is writing. Writing can also be filtered less than speech. Writing, freehandedly that is, is our way of noting down the jargon of our own minds, without filter, without the corruption of accuracy and literacy. But the most common form, the most underrated form of communication, is the art of communication through the body. The body works directly with our subconscious, showing and telling to the world, outwardly, how we feel or how we think. How we process things. The body speaks, vividly and passionately, and more honestly than we do.
