free from the squared-edges of [her] life.” In this one line, the author switches fromthe literal post-its to the figurative post-its. The repetition of “square” and thedenotation of “rip” and “break” make a smooth transition. The use of “rip” and“break” in this line also signals that the author change from the frantic tone to acalmer tone. She then introduces her desert island disc, Instant Pig by the ClazziquaiProject. Again, the author employs the techniques of repetition of “nonconformity”and “conformity” to reveal the fact that the desert island transitions the authorfrom her dull but hectic life to a relaxed state of mind. In doing so, the authorinforms the audience of her mean to escape the island.In the consecutive paragraphs, the author transports the audience to her island.Though she transports the audience to her island, they are still only looking inwithout being part of the island itself. Throughout the essay, the author uses thefirst person “I,” and that does not change in these paragraphs. The use of I herereveals the fact that the album is her album and she does not expect all of heraudience to agree with her. The author then employs the use of exemplification toshow why Instant Pig is her desert island disc. Using different aspects of the albumsuch as “the sound of a scary movie” and “chirping sounds,” she reveals how “thealbum breaks the conformity” of her life.” The author has entertained the audience,informed them of her life and her way of escape, now she encourages the audience,those who leads busy life, to take a break.The author’s last paragraph addresses not only herself, but “everybody.” Here, sheexpands her own thoughts toward other people as a way to connect to her audience.The author makes a bold move and claims that “everybody is on their own island,trapped by time and trapped by responsibilities.” However, the author transitionback to “I” when she mentions Instant Pig because that’s her “ticket off that island.”In doing so, the author encourages her audience to find their own ticket. As theauthor ends with lyrics from the first track of the album and ellipsis, she is no longerfrantic and wound up, no longer confined in her post-its, she is there, away from herdesert island, if only temporarily.
