Romantic poets

These were some interesting fellows! They were full of passion and loved nature. They wanted to rebel against the norm and seek for truth in beauty, art, and language. They expressed their emotions, dreams, and desires in poetry.

How do you express yourself? What would you say is your best mode of expression? Explain why you chose that forum?

People express themselves through words, actions, fashion, body language, attitude, the car they drive, the music they make, the art they make, poetry, haircuts, etc. I like to express myself through words the best. It just seems the best way to get my point across.

I like to express myself through art, music, and occasionally writing... most people don't really get what I'm trying to say, but as long as I do I'm ok with it.

I best express myself when I play soccer. My excitement, nervousness, and intensity all come out before and during big games. On a more personal level, I express myself in my devotion journal. In it, I write down reflections, prayers, thoughts, and anything else I'm thinking about.

Music is always a big expressor. People though express themselves through almost everything. Like all the stuff Jonathan said, expression seems to be shown through almost every aspect of life. Expression is a big force in everyones life.

I like to express myself really just by talking to people. I play guitar and I write songs and those are two other ways. But I still think just hanging out with my friends and doing activities with them is my best way.

I guess most of the time I express myself through my words- sometimes I might say something I dont necessarily mean, but it comes out anyway! Other times, I express myself through music- I love to sing so thats another way I express myself.

I don't really express myself in the way the romantic poets did. I express myself through my actions or maybe what i wear. I would say my voice is my best mode of expression. My actions can sometimes reflect strongly what I feel but mostly I express myself through my words. I write my thoughts down sometimes to organize them and remember exactly what was going on in my life at that moment. But I don't really know because I have never really thought about it before right now.

I enjoy expressing myself in my conversations with my friends and just in my words in general. I also express myself in playing music, listening to certain bands, playing basketball, and in other random ways. I think freedom of expression is one of the core freedoms one can have and I enjoy being able to express myself.

I think that my best mode of expression is through words and listening to music. I like to show how I am feeling by communicating it to other people. Also, I like to choose a type of music based on how I am feeling. When I am happy I like to listen to happy music and when I am sad I like to more melancholoy music.

The way that I express myself through me clothes. When I am in a good mood in the morning I dress up or wear cute clothes, but if i am in a bad mood than I wear a t-shirt and don't spend much time getting ready. I also express myself through the type of music i am listening too.

I definitly do not express myself the way the romantic poets did. I usually express myself through words. It is easy to tell my mood by the way that I am talking.

I dont think that i express myself through what i wear or what i write. I would say that i express myself through what i say and the music i listen to.

Everyone expresses themselves in a different way. i am not really artsy, so i probably express myself through what I say. i am much better with words than music or drawing.

I guess I express myself most through my interactions with others, but at the same time, I'm really not that expressive of a person. I tend to keep things to myself.

DorieF5 said...

I think that I mainly express myself through what I say or how I look. I don't mean by the clothes I wear, but by my body language. If I am not in a good mood, you can see it by the look on my face and the way I am carrying myself. Or I will just tell you that I am not okay, and I will just flat out tell you how I feel. I am a very honest person and when people ask for my opinion I will tell them. Sometimes I will write when it is something that I don't want to share with people, but otherwise I will just come out with the truth.

There are many health ways to express yourself. I have a desire to not only paint, but I enjoy observing other artist's work as well. The color schemes and texture are always hints to the emotions of the piece, however what's so wonderful about art is that it’s multi-dimensional it can have many different meanings to many different people. It is always up for interpretation, a bit of mystery is always intriguing.

I would have to say I explicitly express myself in words, mainly to get a my point across. I think I also inexplicity myself by the actions I make.

KatherineK5 said...

I definitely express myself best through my words and actions. Sometimes though, if I can't find the right way to say something, I will write a poem or a song that gets my point across and shows what emotions I'm feeling. I guess I can kind of relate to the Romantic poets in that way.

I guess I would have to say I best express myself through soccer. Soccer is a means of escape for me. Once I step onto the field, I am able to let it all out. I tend to bottle things up inside, so soccer really helps to let everything go.

I express myself through writing. I don't really write in a "journal", but i do have a spiral notebook that some might call a journal. I picked that form of expression because it comes easiest to me!

VirginiaB5 said...

I would say i best express myself when i dance. It is something i enjoy doing which makes it easy for me to expresss myself. Dancing seems to be the only easiest way to express myself because I have been dancing for so long.

I express myself through everyday interactions with my fellow peers. I think the best way/forum to get your views across is through open discussion with others. When we discuss our feelings with other people, we get new knowledge on our views and are able to better understand/defend them.

Since I do not have any artistic ability I like to express myself through words. It is the simplest to just say what you are feeling.

AndersonS6 said...

I would say the best way and only real way I ever use is to just talk to people. However, I'm sure writing or finding some other outlets is fine, it's just not my thing.
