Personal Response about "Names and Faces Project"

  The biggest problem of our group members, including me, was that we trust each other too much. We thought that since we are doing a group work,  each of us only have to do a bit of work, and didn’t pushed our selves hard. It was a big mistake. As a result, at [...]

Poems are written by the real lovers, so we can see some real love thorough the love poems. But actors are “acting” love, so it’s not real. [...]
