Complex Vs Simple Lifestyle - 346 words
I agree with Tom Robbins that life is complex opposed to Thoreaus view that life is simple. The only way that life could be simple for anyone, is if he/she lived all alone with everything needed for life already provided. Even the company of another person would complicate things and make everything a little more complex. Another example of a simple life may be one of a dog or a cat. The only thing they have to do all day is go to the bathroom. But then again, even animals get sick, which in turn makes life for them complex. No matter what, life has to be full of challenges that make it harder. For example, the other day I was driving home from school, when a police officer pulled me over fo ...

Tupac has always been the person who's made up the game-always," says Afeni Shakur, Tupac's 47-year-old mother, a week after his New York arraignment and a day after a hearing in Atlanta. A tiny, dark-complexioned woman with close-cropped hair and deeply etched dimples, Afeni lives in a modest apartment in Decatur, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb, and speaks with an urgency that, she says, comes from her lifelong political activism. "He would have make-believe singing groups," she continues, "and he would be Prince, or Ralph in New Edition. He was always the lead." But life wasn't quite that simple for Tupac Amaru Shakur.

In his first performance, Tupac played Travis in A Raisin In the Sun. Tupac leans back on the sofa and beams at the memory. "Right now I can remember the bug biting me right there.

Blind Conformity - 692 words

When this is the case, we sometimes feel forced to change, thus we are susceptible to blind conformity. The word conformity comes from the Latin words con, which means with or together, and forma, which means to shape or mold. Therefore, blind conformity is actually a molding of ourselves tog ...
