John Marsden Writing Topic #484
‘Obstacles are a stimulus to him/her.’ Is that true for you? Give examples.**
I believe this is true for me as it makes life interesting, that being said it all depends on what the obstacle is. Examples for me include all of my uni assessments as they were obstacles to completing my subjects so I could graduate. My uni assessments were stimuli to me as I had to use what I learnt in lectures and at home to complete the assessments and get the best marks. Another example was the final exam that I was required to pass so I could get my full driver’s licence, especially since it took me four goes to pass.
