When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

I use processes that are most common among my peers to select my books. I usually have one of my parental units, usually my mom, to go out and look for books. This is the way it happens because up until now I had no mode of transportation.

The Night Nurse - 1,009 words
Grace has many meanings in the English language today. One of these meanings is to be pardoned from ones actions. In The Night Nurse, by Joyce Carol Oates, Grace Burkhardt is pardoned many times in her life. She is pardoned from dying, pardoned from her actions toward others, and eventually pardons herself from her actions. In life, we are given grace, a pardon for our actions, many times, The first example of grace being given is Grace Burkhardts life being saved physically. She could have died, but was instead saved, and was given more time to live. The doctors saved her life, not because they chose her, but because of their job. Grace was not pardoned by the doctors, but by God, who allow ...

The Scarlet Letter - 1,037 words
When one ponders the thought of innocence, one thinks of a young child who has not been privy to the outside world. Innocence denotes one who were to argue fault, or to be even more specific, one who does not sin. Yet if one were to argue that everyone sins, than that must mean that the term innocent is just an illusion of reality. It is ones perception of these terms, which in it defines whether one is innocent, or one who sins. In The Scarlet Letter, the term sin is clearly defined, but it is defined by those who hold power in the community, and not the community itself. Yet one could argue that it is the community as a whole which ascribes to this theory, but their elders have ultimately ...

My Epiphany - 542 words
In my seventeen years, I've heard the saying "the truth hurts" more times than I can count. I agree with this statement, for I believe my greatest moment of truth caused me the greatest pain. This is when I realized that my first love was my worst love. Unfortunately, it took two years for me to figure this out. Two years of good times, bad times, and finally, the event that led to my realization. I must admit the good times were worth remembering. I met Shawn at a dance in high school. Soon, we were a couple and no one ever saw us apart. He was really great, he'd play with my little brothers and spend most of his free time with me. We went out for a year and then broke up for such a stupid ...

Fiona pulled a daisy from the ground and, when she did, there was a sudden burst of light coming from a single petal. A miniscule figure emerged, retaining the glow of the light. Fiona laughed and said, Hello, Aquitaine. How are you doing this fine evening? Tim watched the scene in quiet amazement. He was waiting for the right time to exit the shadows and approach Fiona.

Religion And Its Effect On Stephen Dedalus - 1,174 words
Religion and Its Effect on Stephen Dedalus Religion is an important and recurring theme in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Through his experiences with religion, Stephen Dedalus both matures and progressively becomes more individualistic as he grows. Though reared in a Catholic school, several key events lead Stephen to throw off the yoke of conformity and choose his own life, the life of an artist. Religion is central to the life of Stephen Dedalus the child. He was reared in a strict, if not harmonious, Catholic family. The severity of his parents, trying to raise him to be a good Catholic man, is evidenced by statements such as, "Pull out his eyes/ Apologise/ Apolog ...
