In her TED talk, “B”, Sarah Kay describes a writing exercise that she does with her students in Project V.O.I.C.E.
Write down three things that you know to be true. The only rule is don’t think too hard.
1. McDonalds shakes do not contain any dairy; McDonalds French fries contain dairy, wheat, and sugar.
2. “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.” -Margaret Thatcher
3. I leave for Berlin in one week and I’m pretty damn nervous about it but not nervous enough not to go.
