End of the Road…Almost

As the semester comes to a close, and this class comes to an end, I wanted to write one last blog post that acts as a capstone to my experience with English 229.  This class has primarily been divided into three units: Observe, Create and Intervene.  It’s funny, because when I try to narrow down…
