At first I found this essay not interesting because it is not a topic that really catches my attention because it seemed slow and boring. George Orwell spoke about his experience going to the mines and seeing how miners work and do many things so that we can have electricity. It taught me to value what we have, and that there are people working very hard for us to have and fill our need. He went out of his comfort zone to learn new things and show us the hard work they do. In the end I realized that everything can be boring but it leaves us with a lesson to value the work of others.
