In class on Thursday, September 7th we were told to write a piece using anaphora. What the hell was that? I asked myself. I have never heard of that up until now. It is the repetition of words or phrases in the beginning of sentences or phrases. After the definition given, maybe it was familiar, just that word seemed unfamiliar. I wrote apiece speaking about myself actually. It is about how much I work and to get to where I am in my life. So it starts: I work. I work whether it’s my shift today or not. I work on everything and anything. I work whether it’s an actual job or a side hustle. I work to get to where I’m at. I work to become the person I am. I work for the money, for the experience. I work to keep myself busy. I work on myself, my attitude. I work from the ranges of everything and anything. I work on what makes me who I am. I work and that is the type of individual that I am. I work and I work harder. I work and that is something that I’ll always do. (All done). Well this piece shows that I am a person who works, I work to get my stuff and get my money up. During High School, I had two official jobs. I did what I had to do in each of these jobs to be able to get a check every week. I quit playing my favorite sport to start working. Basketball meant everything to me but then again money does too. You need money for the clothes you where, for the sneakers on your feet, the food in your mouth and more. So I chose money, helped my family out as well. I was an expense they could get rid of. I was able to care for them and myself. I had my days where I’d come home to feeding everyone in the household, just because that was the type of person I was. If I had, so did they. When I had it good, Mama Sushi was ordered for the house and when they were okay, I’d come home with a bag of McDonald’s. I think they do enough for me, why not give the favor in return. So I work for them and myself. I work to keep myself financially stable. I worked to get here; I could say I made it to Stony Brook University. I’m making it out of Dyckman; I could be one of the few to change my life around.
