ENG 320

Moments after emerging from the birth canal, I was given a label, a label by which I am still known to this day. That label is Benjamin Edgell. Much like this label, which I took no part in choosing, other labels are applied to me each day. Some of my current labels are newlywed, procurement manager for Lockheed Martin, Accounting Major at Strayer University, and music participant.

I have a great interest in applying labels to other people and the things around me through writing. Affixing labels to the things around me allows me to understand them more fully. In this course I would like to take the time necessary to explore my labeling rather than hurrying through the task merely to achieve the approval of a professor. I would like to learn to write for personal enjoyment and expression.
