Future Autobiography  (in-class writing)

Write one of the following:

1.  Imagine it's about forty to sixty years from now, and that you are looking back on your life after you graduated from Le Moyne.  Describe what you have done, and what you think of it.   If, when you have completed this essay, you want to turn it in for comments, please do so. (These tend to be great essays!)

If, after writing them down, you decided to keep your plans to yourself,  then turn in a brief note (less than a page or so) explaining that you have completed the assignment and letting me know what you thought about and/or learned doing the assignment.


2.   Think about question number one.  Outline a brief answer .  Write a letter to your future self reminding him or her of whatever you are concerned that you remember  and know about your goals now.

If, after writing this down, you decide to keep your letter to yourself, please turn in a brief note (less than a page or so)  explaining that you have completed the assignment and letting me know what you thought about and/or learned doing the assignment
