While song lyrics are on-topic here, this question is extremely broad. Placing on hold for now, but can you edit this to ask a more specific question?

comment How do I explain personal details to my professor without being inappropriate?
@Standback - Let's see what kind of answers this attracts, but I suspect that specifying an appropriate level of personal detail might be better done by the Academia site.

This question is very, very close to asking what to write. However, @TommyMyron has provided an excellent answer.

comment How do I avoid tradeoffs with showing vs. telling?
@Standback I think the focus of this question is somewhat unclear, and it could do with some editing to that end. Maybe edits that bring it in line with the answers pointing out the active-vs-passive voice would help, although since I think OP's basic assumptions need to be addressed as well - showing-vs-telling isn't an either/or thing like they assume it is.
