I'm trying to write a college essay using an extended metaphor comparing my desire to pursue education in the future with the creation of a yoyo. This is probably a bit confusing, so I'll try to explain.
I have four separate sections in the essay.
- The Design - a.k.a. The Inspiration
- The Machining - a.k.a. The Vision
- The Testing - a.k.a. The Assessment
- The Production - a.k.a The Envisionment
The first is about how I got the inspiration to become a teacher. The second is how I molded my high school extracurriculars around that goal. The third is how I want to continue testing whether or not teaching is something for me in university. The last is my end goal I guess.
At the moment, I just have it so that it's one paragraph about the yoyo followed by a paragraph about myself and the whole teaching thing. Is there a way for me to join them together using a metaphor to make the essay a more literally coherent/excellent piece? Any help/advice at all would be very much appreciated - thanks in advance!
