Success - 776 words
"Success is counted sweetest/By those who ne'er succeed" Emily Dickinson Since the beginning of my life I have been studying.

Psychoanalysis - 1,742 words
As I sit in my apartment, waiting for my friend Heather to pick me up, I begin to feel very frustrated. It is neither the first nor the second time, for that matter, that she has been late. In fact, she has been late so many times that I have lost count. She used to make external attributions for her constant inability to be punctual, such as telling me that her alarm clock broke or that her mother called her just as she was about to leave. Once she even externally attributed her tardiness on a dog attacking her right before she left to come and pick me up, but she looked fine and had no wounds on her, so I started to wonder. I slowly began to realize that all of the external attributions th ...

The Blind Man - 1,225 words
The narrator in Raymond Carvers Cathedral is not a particularly sensitive man. I might describe him as self-centered, superficial and egotistical. And while his actions certainly speak to these points, it is his misunderstanding of the people and the relationships presented to him in this story which show most clearly his tragic flaw: while Robert is physically blind, it is the narrator that cannot clearly see the world around him. In the eyes of the narrator, Roberts blindness is his defining characteristic. The opening line of Cathedral reads, This blind man, an old friend of my wifes, he was on his way to spend the night. (Carver 1052) Clearly, the narrator can not see past Roberts disabi ...
