Exploration Two: Our first Blog post by Catelyn Millet

My name is Catelyn Millet. I graduated from Hayes High School. During high school I participated in orchestra, choir, and track. I threw discus and shot put. I have four siblings, an older sister, Mandy, an older brother, Cole, and two younger sisters, Ashley and Blair. This is my first year at OSU Marion. I plan on transferring to main campus next year. My area of study is Respiratory Therapy. I enjoy singing and spending time with my family and friends. My dad works at an airport so I get to fly for free. I would love to travel to Italy and California.

One idea that really stuck out to me in Chapter One was that we use multiple types of writing in everyday life. I never really thought of it that way. Taking notes, writing letters, typing a paper, texting, these are all types of ways that we use writing everyday. I also learned that literacy events can happen in multiple places: home, work, school. Depending on where we are, shows what type of writing we will or can use. As long as we are able to write, we will use some type or multiple types of writing each and everyday.

  1. I agree with what you said above. We really do not realize how much writing is a part of our lives. The type of writing that stuck out the most to me is making lists. I use lists in every aspect of my life and I never realized that making a list is like having a conversation with yourself. The book helped me understand why list making is an important kind of writing.
