How to make rice, for Eric

Here's how to make the rice.

Just a regular bag of rice, not minute rice.

It can be any kind of oil. Use a pat of butter
 if you don't have oil.


Here's the directions on the rice. Follow them.
But I always add a little extra rice. I don't like
it to be sticky.
It doesn't have to be a measuring cup.
Any cup is fine. Put the water, 2 spoonfuls of oil, and 2 spoons of salt in pot. Rinse the rice, pick out any bad floating bits. 

Turn the flame to high, to boil the water.
This rice is not ready to be stirred.
This rice is ready to be stirred.
Stir the rice good. Scrape the bottom and sides.





Turn the flame to low
Put the lid on, and set a timer for 20 minutes.
Check if the rice is done. If it's sticky,
cook it another 5 minutes.

English and Writing Studies Thesis 2017-04-27 19:28:00

I feel so proud to say I am basically done. Last week before I even met with my professor, I was already proud and felt like my paper was beautiful and complete. After meeting with my professor, I am proud to say all I really have to do is read back through part two add mini headings and see if I need to make some of my paragraphs smaller.

My parents also had the chance to read through my paper. My dad said it was really good, and my mom said she was so proud. She said my thesis was beautiful, real, and it made her laugh and cry.

I worked so hard. I decided to just leave my thesis as a hard copy, but I am considering doing more in the future.

I know none of this would be possible without God. I also thank my parents Deborah Burr and Dr. Lamont Burr, my professor Dr. Maria (Mia) Christine Zamora, and my classmates Jessica Taylor and David Murphy. I truly appreciate everything.

By Gum, I think I’m Ready to Publish! by Debbie Bagnato


Yes that's the reality, I believe the site is finally ready. BUT then I find some small piece of wording on a page--other than the play I adapted (the actual project) and begin to revise that...So, I wait another day and find some other minute section I want to reword, ever so slightly, and so the tale goes. But, I had wanted to visit Dr. Z and do the actual publishing with her--a sort of security blanket? And that might be what I am waiting for--except my schedule is unpredictable of late--and sometimes erratic. And she is even busier than I am! These next few days will decide it for me--once I see my work schedule for next week, I can either go ahead and take that plunge (actually, push the little button that says "publish") or I can email my mentor and see if perhaps we can squeeze in one short piece of time. The concerns are non-related to the writing; I went word by word and found a few details to change but feel pretty confident it is in good shape. It is in the other pages that are directed to the reading public--the world of the internet. Among which will be my co-workerrs looking to see if they are mentioned, listed in the cast, and if their photos look presentable on my website.
My hope is that they are all pleased with what I have done; the store is the "setting" for my entire adaptation. Many of my co-workers are the modern-day cast members who shadow the original characters Aristophanes created back in 411 BCE. I simply noticed the similarities--and often exaggerated the likenesses--to create this piece set in this situation with these people. I feel a bit like I have stage fright--and the only cure for that is to get out onstage. If I feel the need to publish will remedy these cold feet, I will go ahead. Of course, I will be looking and checking all pages later (I just finished...) and then finishing up my other piece. I think my next blog might be read--if you choose to follow--on my website! Hope everyone is moving confidently towards their big finish and cannot wait to see you all on the eighth. Bye for now my writing chums.
