Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.
First Light: This morning I woke up thinking ‘oh shoot’! I have not done my assignment yet. Most participants have completed and published their replies and now breathing a sigh of relief.
I am probably the only one who did not get my work done. The topic is such I have nightmares thinking about it. I know I can write it if I spend some time organizing my thoughts and then write my reply.
This morning I told myself this is ridiculous, I have to at least attempt it, good or bad once I get it done, I’ll be stress free.
I wrote it, I was aiming at proving lack of equality in certain places and why there is so much chaos there.
I’m feeling great I know no matter how difficult the task was the fact I managed to complete it, I deserve a pat on my back!
We’ve all had exchanges where we came up with the perfect reply —- ten minutes too late. Write down one of those,but this time, make sure to sign off with your grand slam (unused) zinger.
It happened when I was a student at the university, there were over a hundred of us in that particular class, most of them were male students, only three of us were female.
The prof gave us an assignment in our tutorial class, my two classmates did not understand the question ,they requested me to show mine, I thought it doesn’t hurt they’ll know how to write the assignment.
With our papers in front of him, the prof. gave a curious look and then, he said,”Who copied whom?”
I was stunned, nothing came out of my mouth, afterwards I felt I should have said something.
I should have said, “Sir, they were having trouble with the question, they didn’t know how to answer. I gave them my papers to see how to do it, I did not know they’ll copy mine.”
Those words never came out, to this day I wonder who the prof. thought had actually written the assignment.
Q is the letter I will not use. Let me see if it works.
I have an assignment to do. I’m not sure how long it will take. I have to write what does the lesson tell me about myself. It tells a lot,or let me put it this way, I have thought about it long and hard and I’m amazed to find there are things I have learned which I’m totally unaware of.
I am of the opinion this is i.e., a lesson that can be helpful to a lot of people.

To me it was the nicest thing I’ve ever done. To others it might not be the case. Still I thought I did something nice back when I was studying in the university.
We were three female students in our class, rest of them were male. Two hundred fifty were male and only three of us were female. I thought if I could help my two female classmates complete the assignment given to us, it would be the nicest thing I could do for them.
My classmates were having trouble with the assignment. They didn’t know how to do it. Being a nice person like I was, I let them look at mine. Was I thinking they’d copy my work word for word, no I didn’t? That’s exactly what they did!
We handed in our assignment. The Prof. read our assignment and then without missing a beat he barked, “Who copied whom?”
I thought it was the nicest thing I ever did. The Prof.’s looks clearly indicated it wasn’t the nicest thing. So I leave it up to my readers to make the final decision!
