Perception Essay Ticked

After a confused start where I was struggling to understand what to do in my perception essay, I finally finished it, I went just under the maximum of 2000 words, based on the theories, the laws and also on the analysis of the film, ' The Truman Show' and a respective poster of the film.

The key to finish the essay and taking Alan's advice was to write about something that i like and yes it made my life a lot easier. once again, I thank him for that, also thank him for recomending the book 'Reading the Popular' by John Fiske, i guess i wont be able to just a read one chapter though. Interesting the way that everything that goes in our head is put on the paper and it makes sense.
