Who I Am - 849 words
During all of high school, I seemed as if I were hiding behind a mask. When I was at home I was a totally different person. At school I was trying to be a person who could fit in, but the more I tried the more it didnt seem to work. Everywhere I went I would censor what I said depending on my surroundings and the people that were with me. Most of the time I would not say anything at all because I was afraid of being embarrassed. I would always have to change my mode when different people were around me. It was horrible; I hated it. I was getting sick and tired of always being someone I was not. It was about the middle of the summer of 1999, after my junior year, that I realized that being tw ...

Drinking Reality - 713 words
There is nothing in the world I love more than coffee, I thought. The aroma that calls you from a million miles away. The bitterness it sends through your soul, filling you up; giving you the warmth that you so desperately crave. And the darkness the blackness that reminds me all too much of my life. I didnt know what I was doing there, but somehow it made sense. I skipped my first class that day. My first class ever. I didnt know why. If I had to think about it, I never knew why I did anything. All my life, I was guided and told what to do by others. I never realized where I was going; I walked a tight rope of others expectations thinking that if I ever took my eyes off what was ahead, I wo ...

"I'm not sure, I haven't decided it yet. Linda, just sit down on the sofa for a minute, I will bring you the diary, ok?" I was waiting for him for more than a minute, and started to be curious and suddenly, I could hear a song. It was "Happy birth day to you" from The New Kids On The Block. And John was bringing a cake with 20 candles on it with the music and 20 roses. "Linda, you were so sad because you thought that I don't remember your birthday, right? I was going to do a surprise party for you tomorrow, but because you came ...

At this time, women were tattooed by making a series of closely drawn parallel lines extending from the center of the lower lip to the chin.

Robert Altman Short Cuts - 1,189 words
The purpose of the initial scene, while the credits are still rolling, is to introduce us to the abundance of characters, situations and interpersonal relations that take place in an urban setting and to see life beyond the control that its characters have upon it. It observes the inevitable and unpredictable changes in relationships, their evolution and the interactions between the different couples that sometimes enrich but mostly threaten their fragile stability. Altmans camera can be perceived as an exploratory eye that inquires into the daily chaos while attempting to make it comprehensible to the viewer. I chose the first five minutes because that scene is, in my opinion, the most repr ...

Mythic Patterns In Movies - 1,146 words
Mythic Patterns Within Movies Often in literature there are mythic patterns that can be seen throughout stories and fairytales that make reading more interesting. However this is also true for many movies. It may not be apparent to avid movie viewers that there is a similarity that can be linked to most movies that are available to watch. A considerable amount of them contain one, if not more, mythic patterns that make the movie more interesting and provide a higher level of insight to the viewer. This is obvious in action movies where the star of the film almost always experiences a heros quest and in romantic movies the star undergoes a loss of innocence.

Along with maintaining an ironic balance within Rape Fantasies, Estelles personality revelations introduce other ideas into the story. Her casual friendly banter can take a complex, weighty topic such as rape and simplify it into one naive workingwomans thoughts. She mentions growing up as a Catholic girl and how that helped to save her from the fantasized basement axe murderer. There are two religious references made by Estelle, and both mention the Virgin Mary. This possibly expresses two thing ...

History Of Rap Music - 3,600 words
Rap music is truly an American minority artist creation of which students need to be proud. Unfortunately, rap music is not perceived by many Americans as an art form, but as a fad which they hope will soon fade away. One of my intentions with my unit is to show that rap music is not a fad, but a musical art form that has been around for over 20 years in the United States. In fact, one can trace the history of rap back to the West African professional singers/storytellers known as Griots. However, it is not my intention to discuss in my unit the connection between the Griots and American rap music. Although, I will assign my students the task of doing a brief report on the African Griots pri ...

Conflict Resolution - 986 words
Throughout ones life, one establishes many relationships. Some are built upon, and become strong and unshakable, some are broken and left to dissolve. While some are paved slowly and with love, blossoming to become something wonderful, others are blown apart - the pieces scattered, never to be put back together again. Though these relationships vary, from professional to personal, they are all prone to encountering some form of conflict. John Dewey has designed a problem solving sequence with 6 (six) steps, listed and explained below, to facilitate resolution of these conflicts. Since the way one deals with conflict within the relationship will affect how the relationship progresses, it is v ...
