Pinterest A Grateful Life Lived: Argument

Tuesday, February 19, 2013


     I'm just going to file this one under "Randoms," because I refuse to make another category just for my everyday rants.  Here is your disclaimer though: this is in the realm of rants.  Basically, it all started three weeks ago when my AP Composition and Language class was introduced to argumentative writing.  As part of the unit, we have to write an argumentative essay.  I mean, that's kind of the point.  Right?  I love writing and I enjoy the essays we have done in the past.  This one, however, is giving me a headache.  I can't figure out what to write about!
    This is not writer's block, its I-don't-even-know-where-to-start block.  Understandably, we are advised not to tackle a huge issue within the minimum of four pages, paper.  I've thought and thought though, and can't think of a solid enough idea.  I guess the irony of this is falling short for most of you, because you have not seen me in every day life.  I will go as far to say that I seriously thought about becoming a lawyer because I love to argue so much.  I grew up with two brothers (one older, one younger) as well, so I got my share of expertise in the area of arguing a point.  I had to when my older brother and I fought basically nonstop!  Is that okay to admit anonymously to an internet audience: I like to argue.  Let's put it in nicer terms though: I enjoy "debate."  Granted, I am soft-spoken and overly desire to please others, but inside this head is a roaring flood of evidence for "debates."
     Regardless of the euphemism, I have a problem on my hands: the girl who loves a good "debate" doesn't know what to "debate!"  I have a few ideas, but they're not concrete enough.  To make matters worse, it's not exactly something the world can help me with.  It has to be a topic that I am truly interested in and is relevant to me.  So, I guess I just wasted the past few minutes of your life...Bummer.  Don't try to nail me on it though, I'll probably launch into a full scale "debate" for ya'.         :)
