Chapter one reveals the attitudes of Victorian England towards class and society in general.
Blog Brown University Sample Essay My friends most of whom toiled away at summer jobs this summer are sick of hearing about my trip to Paris.
And, rumor has it that I am not allowed to write about Paris in my college applications. Apparently, it sounds too privileged and anything I could say would be clich. Spending five weeks gallivanting around the most beautiful city in the world with my friends, living with a family and taking interesting classes is privileged.
The clich part could be true, although I think there are subtleties in my foreign experience that can be applied to good old Boston. I learned that I like to think in Paris. I think a lot in my daily routine at Milton. But the Paris kind of thinking is different, namely, because this contemplation was done on my own terms.
The homework got done because my mind found the topic worthy.
I discovered I love art, in the context of life, not a paper that was due. Granted some of this inspiration was due to extraordinary surroundings, but I think it was more than that. The experience provided the time, the people and the forum to contemplate life.
At Milton, time is always the issue. A Frenchman told me that the American system is like a serpent. It swallows you, you travel through its body, until it passes you out at the end.
This analogy seems to ring true in the pressures of senior fall. Unfortunately, learning on your own terms and being successful do not always coincide. The best way to get the best grades is to work like a machine. There is always the tradeoff.
My only advice is to fully understand the trade off. Sneak in as much personal thinking time as possible. Of course with all the artwork and new people swirling about you, it is almost impossible not to do any internal thinking. The swirl of incredibly confusing thoughts in my mind bled onto paper in the form of a French Journal.
I am a huge fan of keeping any kind of journal, because everything you write, good or bad reflects you in some way and is therefore good. I prefer to do mine in the third person, because it is more removed and therefore one does not feel as much pressure to report purely fact.
It is more creative, less of an accurate journal. However, ones English voice can become stale and suffocating because it is used so often. But to write a journal in a foreign language is even more fulfilling because it is a new voice.
They say that one becomes a new person in each different language. All of this journal writing served to add dimension to my self-image.Tom Brown's Schooldays is more a junior Pilgrim's Progress than the jolly romp most of us remember.
