I chose to research the genre of fables, specifically Aesop’s fables. I only informed of the basics of fables. To be frank with you I don’t even think there is much to know about fables. What is there to know? They contain lessons, animals, and they are short. From time to time people use them in their quotidian day to back up their opinions. Especially authority figures like parents, teachers, and, well I can just think of those two. Personally I believe that “Don’t let things for the last minute” is their favorite one. “Why haven’t you done your homework?”… oh wait, that does not apply to fables. Well in summation my knowledge on fables is very superficial.
The reason for me selecting fables is because they have an important meaning. Fables are quite significant to the people because they teach us fundamental lessons about life in a short and fascinating way. The average intelligence quotient around the world is quite low/normal. The reason for me to state this opinion is because if fables were to be complex, they wouldn’t be so famous and known. Even if we do not realize it, we unconsciously think of fables, or at least their morals, when it comes to making decisions. We are influenced tous les jours with their catchy morals, at least I am.
I embarked this tremendous trajectory on December 13, 2013 when we received the exciting news that we were starting an I-search paper! Oh yes, writing a six page long essay on only fifteen short stories will be so facile. NOT!!! On the bright side each day working on this project had led me to new insights and fantastic knowledge about Aesop and his fables. Which sincerely I thought there was not much to know. The first step was quite simple due to the fact that it was based on two opinion questions. The second step became a bit more difficult for the reason that I could not find any useful articles about my topic. Primarily I was looking for a book, which was checked out. I spent most of the period in the pursuit of an imaginary book. After becoming aware that the book was not there I commenced searching for an article on the internet. Majority of the articles gathered contained only superficial information of the topic. I needed to list 20 facts and those articles only gave me around two, which I already knew. Switching off to another point let me tell you, five minutes between classes is not enough. On top of the fact that I kept forgetting we were in the library every day, I had to use the restroom. Each day I would exit my fourth period via the restroom then to Mr. Boardman’s room; only to find that annoying white piece of paper taped in the window that read “seniors we are in the libraryJ”. That oh so obnoxious smiley face staring me directly in the eyes burning my corneas, laughing at me because I once again failed to recall that we were meeting in the library.
In summation the whole week was eternal and hectic. Exams were around the corner and there was some...
