During this reading, halfway through once Haltman started to bring up objects and how one is to interpret an object. As he writes in his essay, he says “attention not just to what they might be said to signify but, as importantly, to how they might be said to signify.” After reading the first part of this essay and reaching this specific paragraph with this quote, it hit me that this is what we would be doing with the AIDS foundation and panel we were to write about. It took my a bit to realize it until I read through the essay more.
My writing was mostly working on asking questions rather than answering them as there was so much to be discovered. Whenever I felt like I had an answer, it only led to more questions and jotting down more quotations that related back to what we needed to write about the panel.
What my writing/thinking could do differently is maybe try to answer more of my questions and bring up other points or connections. By reading the essay, there was a lot of things my mind was starting bring up because of all the connections it was making after reading certain sentences. My thinking was starting to make more sense and everything started to become more clear as I continued reading which led to my writing and thinking to be more clear when I continued to read and jot down more notes.
