Classic Rhetoric Now (CH.2 p.23-28)

At first, the beginning of chapter two talks about the differences of Define and Explain.These two words can be very different from their Latin roots. For example, Define means to make finite, such as "confine." Explain gets more expansive sense from the ex-. To make things more clear, we explain it.
 After, in this chapter it will offer us tips not only for how to write, but also for how to go about thinking. However, we can still keep our own thinking, just learning other method of thinking. Later, the chapter talks a little bit about one of the Plato's dialogue, Phaedrus. And later lead to how Plato said about writing, such as useful tips and ideas for writing.

Practice Makes Perfect (Skiing experience can tell)

I always believe that Practice Makes Perfect, and there are many ways to prove this belief.
Today I am going to tell the example of proving this belief– from my skiing experience. 
This weekend I went skiing with my friends, Evan, Allen, and my boyfriend Lester.
This was not the first time I went to ski, but only the third times. Since my hometown, Taiwan, a tropical island don't snow at all, I never ski before I moved to the U.S. However, the last time I skied was like two years ago, I can't remember how to ski at all.
