The Class, The Words, The Understanding
By Samantha Marinelli
This class has taught me so much. I learned things about spanish, about life, and about myself. As a class we saw the lines between reality and imagination, we made connections between friendship and love. We learned who we are and how we learn the best. I dedicate this final blog post to my incredible teacher, thank you for everything that you have taught us.
People use reality to inspire the future and to change their lives. Someone needs reality to understand imagination, their hopes and desires. Imagination creates adventures, and adventure is a way in which people understand themselves. When they understand themselves, the people can create their identities. Identity can change over the years after encountering many adventures in life. While the people find themselves, they can learn how to love. Love can be between friends, not just between lovers, and friendships are just as important. Friendship takes many forms and can transform while the people themselves transform. Friends see all of each other’s character, and because of this they can understand one another’s insanity. Insanity is not bad, but rather, it brings fun to life. With insanity, there is obsession which is the intense love for something. Obsession can be a form of flattery, it should not be feared. People should not be so serious, it is more important to enjoy life. Some people use satire to share laughter and fun. Satire has many different definitions that depend on people’s points of view, and it is always interesting to compare them. Finally, there is religion. Like satire, each person has a different idea of what creates a religion and what makes someone believe in something. Religion is the security of having something to believe in when needed.
Each word has a different definition than the others, but they also share the same ideas. We perceive things in many ways, and what makes the world the most magical is when people unite themselves to discover and learn together.
