"Whadda ya mean carrot?"
"Nothin\' don\'t worry about."
"Dude, what\'s yer problem?"
This work sucks! God I hate havin\' to do work. I wish I could just crawl in a big hole and stay there. Today sucks. Oh well it\'ll get better after I ask that girl out later. She was totally flirtin\' with me.
"Dude, ya know that chick I was talkin\' about the other day."
"Yeah, what about her?"
"I\'m gonna ask her out today."
"Hey, you two, be quiet back there," said the teacher harshly.
"Dude, I\'ll talk you, later."
Well I guess today\'s not all bad, yet. Being a psychic sucks. I already know somethin\' bad\'s gonna happen. God I wish this class would just end. I wish school would end. I hate writing. It sucks so bad. Was that the bell? No, crap everybody\'s still here.
"Dude, how much time does this class have left?"
"Just pack up bro the class is almost over."
O.K. now that was the bell. I hope she\'s here. Alright she is. That\'s cool, maybe today won\'t suck after all.
"Hey, yo, ya need some help wit that?"
"Sure could you hold this for just a second."
"So did you go to any parades this week-end?"
"Yeah, I went to the one in Slidell with my family and my boyfriend. His friend showed up and we all had a great time. It was so much fun. I caught a whole lot of beeds and stuff."
Well then again today might suck after all. I can\'t believe this. God this sucks. This sucks more than anything that has ever sucked before. I wanna go home. I wish I could just go home and listen to "Suicidal Dream" and maybe some Smashing Pumpkins. Ohh crap my freakin\' C.D.\'s still at my aunt\'s I wish she\'d mail it back.
"So what did you do this week-end?" she said, obviously not realizing that she had just completely screwed my day all to heck. Maybe the whole piece-a-crap-week.
"I went to some parades with my family. I wasn\'t all that into it; mostly helped my sisters get beads."
"Oh that\'s so sweet."
Oh well if that didn\'t just brighten my day right back up. Get my hopes up, shoot me down like a wounded duck, and then calls me sweet. How stupid can you get? Can she not see where this conversation was going?" I wish I\'d have know yesterday rather than thinkin\' an\' rethinkin\' this conversation over an\' over in my head ‘til I was almost obsessed.
"O,K, well glad I could help ya but I gotta go do my work. It\'ll probably take me the rest of the period ta finish so I gotta go start now."
I shoulda known that a girl like that would have a boyfriend anyway. I hate myself. I\'m so stupid.
"Hey, yeah, what\'s up bro?"
"Nothin, much, it\'s all good."
This work isn\'t that bad. I can do this. At least I ain\'t gotta write or nothin\'. I still don\'t wanna be here. I don\'t wanna be any where at all. It\'s amazing how I for some reason even if I\'m totally bummed I always sound happy when I talk. It makes me sick. Everything\'s just stupid. At least this class almost over. I wish she didn\'t have boyfriend. God she\'s so hot.
At least there\'s a lot of people I know in the halls. (Time Lapse) Well that class sucked.
And this one sucked so far, but it\'s almost over.
"O.K. mark the spot and we\'ll start there tomorrow," said the teacher to my relief.
God that girl\'s hot. She has the most beautiful hair I have ever seen. I might dye my hair that color. Or purple. I\'m gonna read my magazine. Dude, "Monster Magnet", if this article is as funny as the one I read about them being protested for having nude lesbians on stage at a underage concert then this\'ll rule. Reading reading reading. O.K. enough reading. We\'ve only got a few minutes left anyways.
"Hey, can I see that."
Dude, it\'s her. She is so hot. I always figured she wasn\'t in to "METAL".
"Sure here ya go."
I bet she wouldn\'t be half as hot if she didn\'t have red hair.
"I love Monster Magnet."
"Really, I figured you were into like rap or somethin\'

Marcus Garvey Marcus Garvey Historians familiar with Garvey's career generally regard him as the preeminent symbol of the insurgent wave of black nationalism that developed in the period following World War I. Although born in Jamaica, Garvey achieved his greatest success in the United States. He did so despite the criticism of many African-American leaders and the covert opposition of the United States Department of Justice and its Bureau of Investigation (forerunner of the FBI). As a young man, Garvey had
The Red Badge of Courage The Red Badge of Courage The Red Badge of Courage is now universally recognized as a masterpiece, although when it first appeared in book form in 1896 (two months later in England than in the United States) it provoked mixed reactions. The English critics, in fact, brought it to the attention of the American public, which had generally ignored it. Those early readers who approved saw in it a true and complete picture of war, a book which thrusts aside romantic machinery in favor of dramatic
Discrimination Discrimination The struggle for social and economic equality of Black people in America has been long and slow. It is sometimes amazing that any progress has been made in the racial equality arena at all; every tentative step forward seems to be diluted by losses elsewhere. For every Stacey Koons that is convicted, there seems to be a Texaco executive waiting to send Blacks back to the past. Throughout the struggle for equal rights, there have been courageous Black leaders at the forefront of
The EPA Can It Will It Save Our EnvironmentThe EPA: Can It, Will It Save Our Environment? Pollution of our environment is an issue that concerns each and every one of us. The threat of environmental degradation now looms greater than the threat of nuclear war. Patrick Henry said, I know no way of judging the future but by the past. In the past man has trampled on the environment. The word 'ecology' means 'a study of home.' It means discovering what damage man has done, then finding ways to fix it.The Environmental Protection Agency
Buddha Buddha The word Buddha means enlightened one. It is used today as a title to the one who has given us more religious beliefs than almost any other human who lived in this world. However, he was not given this name at birth; he had to earn it for himself by undergoing long, hard hours of meditation and contemplation. Buddha has changed the lifestyles of many cultures with new, never-before asked questions that were explained by his search for salvation. He began an entirely new religion that d

Poet and philosopher Archibald Lampman 1861-1899 Poet and philosopher Archibald Lampman (1861-1899) led not a life of his own, but an existance forced upon him by peers and an unfeeling and cold society. Dying far before his time, Lampman led a life of misery. He was supported only by a few close friends and his immortal poetry. This essay is founded around one particular of his works but I feel it necessary to discuss the conditions in which he lived in order to fully understand what he was trying to express and/or symbolize. Lampman really
A Prose Analysis on Sonnet XIX A Prose Analysis on Sonnet XIX John Milton, a poet who was completely blind in 1651 wrote Sonnet XIX in 1652; this sonnet is his response to his loss of sight. The theme of the sonnet is the loss and regain of primacy of experience. Milton offers his philosophical view on animism and God. Furthermore, Sonnet XIX explores Milton's faith and relationship with God. Sonnet XIX suggests that man was created to work and not rest. The supportive details, structure, form, and richness of contex
A Violent Illumination of Salvation A Violent Illumination of Salvation Flannery O'Connor uses violence to return characters to reality and prepare them to accept their moment of grace. The New Encyclopedia Britannica defines grace as the spontaneous, unmerited gift of the divine or the divine influence operating in man for his regeneration and sanctification (401). At any cost, a soul must find salvation. O'Connor states, In my own stories I have found that violence is strangely capable of returning my characters to reality a
Christianity in Dostoyevskys Crime and Punishment An Overview Christianity in Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment: An Overview Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote, “ If someone succeded in proving to me that Christ was outside the truth, and if, indeed, the truth was outside Christ, then I would sooner remain with Christ than with the truth” (Frank 68). It was by no means easy for Dostoyevsky to reach this conclusion. In Dostoyevsky’s life, one sees that of an intellectual Prodigal Son, returning to the Father In Heaven only after all other available systems of belie

CHARACTERIZATION CHARACTERIZATION The main characters of DostoevskyÕs novel The Brothers Karamazov are, as the title suggests, the members of the Karamazov Òfamily,Ó if it can indeed be called such. The only things that the members of this family share are a name and the ÒKaramazov curse,Ó a legacy of base impulses and voluptuous lust. References to this tendency towards immorality are sprinkled heavily throughout the novel; phrases such as Òa brazen brow and a Karamazov conscience,Ó Òvoluptuary streak,Ó and ÒK

6 - Illusion and Reality #6 - Illusion and Reality Is illusion necessary to life? Discuss the role of illusion in the play. I believe that illusion is not necessary to everyone’s life but rather it helps them to avoid the harsh realities that they may have to deal with in their lives. I also believe that a major theme of this play was how our lives can often experience a fierce battle between these illusions. In the case of A Streetcar Named Desire there are many examples where the characters are simply hiding in or
Jude the Obscure Jude the Obscure In Hardy's Jude the Obscure, Hardy shows his views on religion and commitment to the Church which were said to have declined in the latter years of his life. (Ingham, xxvii) Throughout the book Hardy displays his feeling that religion is something that people use in order to satisfy themselves by giving their lives' meaning. One instance in which Hardy clearly displays this is when he writes, It had been the yearning of his heart to find something to anchor on, to cling to. (
INNOCENCE VS EXPERIENCE INNOCENCE VS. EXPERIENCE It is believed that the world exists in two fashions, innocence and experience. Neither can exist without its opposite. Innocence is where humans begin, and they must pass through experience on their way to heaven. One figure from turn-of-the-century literature are prime examples of innocence lost which characterize this idea. Maggie, author Stephen Crane's main character in Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is a soul whose story shows the trauma of the loss of innocence th
Once And Future King Analytical Paper Once And Future King Analytical Paper Sir Lancelot’s intense desire to perform heroic deeds was brought on by his lack of confidence and insecurity. His childhood was spent in seclusion, training for a job desired only to escape the hellish life that his hideous face would otherwise hold in store for him. Lancelot’s adulthood was spent trying to overcompensate for this ugliness by performing Herculean feats and good deeds. And the twilight years of his life were spent in remorse for the bad thi

Hamlet went through various emotional states because of different unfo Hamlet went through various emotional states because of different unfortunate circumstances that confronted him. Yet Hamlet never went so far over the edge so as to not come back from reality, yet for reasons psychological, he procrastinated actions that he should have taken, until it was too late. I will first discuss Hamlet, the origins for his queer behavior and if it twas feigned or not. In the first act we see that Hamlet is a sort of idealistic man coming back to the world from universi
Hamlet Hamlet In Shakespeare’s tragedy, Hamlet, there is a prevalent and almost overwhelming theme. All throughout the play, all of the characters appear as one thing, with one standpoint, and one outlook. However on the inside, all of these characters are completely different. This ‘mask’ theme, the way that all of the characters portray themselves as one person on the outside and one different one on the inside, is not in the least disguised by Shakespeare. Claudius, the murdering king, appears to b
English Shakespeare October 5 1996 English: Shakespeare October, 5 1996 Redemption In Shakespeare's Henry IV, the character Hal, the Prince of Wales, undergoes a transformation that can be characterized as a redemption. Shakespeare introduces Hal, in the opening act as a renegade of the Court. His avoidance of all public responsibility and his affinity for the company of the Boar's Head Tavern, have caused serious concern for the King, because Hal is heir to the throne. The King realizes that to keep order, a ruler and his heir
Lady MacBeth Lady MacBeth Lady MacBeth is one of Shakespeare's greatest and most intriguing female characters. She is evil, seductive, and witch-like all at the same time. However, during the play we see her in two different ways. At the time when we first meet her, she is a brutally violent, power wanting witch, and later on she turns to a shameful suicidal grieving woman. At the beginning of the MacBeth, Lady MacBeth is very savage and vicious. She thinks nothing of killing King Duncan. She has no sense o
Pesaresi 1 Julia Pesaresi Pesaresi 1 Julia Pesaresi Burns 3rd Period Pre-Ap English 20 February 96 Solitude and Isolation: Three of Hawthorne's works Solitude and isolation are immense, powerful, and overcoming feelings. They possess the ability to destroy a person's life by overwhelming it with gloom and darkness. Isolate is defined: to place or keep by itself, separate from others (Webster 381). Solitude is the state of being alone (Webster 655). Nathaniel Hawthorne uses these themes of solitude and isolation for th
The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society since the earliest civilizations and continues to be used as a form of punishment in countries today. It has been used for various crimes ranging from the desertion of soldiers during wartime to the more heinous crimes of serial killers. However, the mere fact that this brutal form of punishment and revenge has been the policy of many nations in the past does not subsequently warrant its implementation in today's society. The

The Shawshank Redemption The Shawshank Redemption For my film analysis, I chose the movie The Shawshank Redemption. Frank Darabont directed Shawshank and wrote the screenplay based on the novel Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by author Stephen King. The movie was made in 1994 and produced by Niki Marvin. The movie stars Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins as two convicts serving time in a New England prison named Shawshank.

The Significance of the Cross The Significance of the Cross The significance of the cross has changed over the years. In the beginning before Christ gave himself up for our sins the cross was viewed as a sign of pain and suffrage. The Romans used to execute criminals and enemies of the state on them. The were hung along the road showing the sarrows of people. It was the most shameful way to die. The pain and anguish it caused was unbearable and feared by all. Except Roman citizens. The pain and shame of death on the cross w

Priest and Chaplain The characters of the chaplain in Albert Camus The Priest and Chaplain The characters of the chaplain, in Albert Camus’ The Outsider, and the priest, in Franz Kafka’s The Trial, are quite similar, and are pivotal to the development of the novel. These characters serve essentialy to bring the question of God and religion to probe the existentialist aspects of it, in novels completely devoid of religious context. The main idea visible about these two characters is that they are both the last ones seen by the protagonists, Mearsault and K., both n

FRANKENSTEINFRANKENSTEIN Frankenstein is a reckless character. He is the true monster in this story. Discuss. Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein (Shelley), like many texts of the gothic genre, describes the actions, and resulting grave events, of the main character, Victor Frankenstein, who discovers how to create life and then uses this knowledge to create an intelligent being. Although this being is later responsible for the murder of many people, Frankenstein is not a monster for creating it, as he has re
Hemmingways The Sun Also RisesHemmingway’s The Sun Also Rises The central theme in Hemingway's works has repeatedly been heroism. Much of what has been read so far does not reflect gruesome death, nor, does it simply transport us into the scheme of the lost generation. His stories have all been essentially the portrayal of a hero; a man (until Brett was introduced) sets the standards for those around him. But most of Hemingway's works do, in fact entail the reality of death. The hero is defined by how he reacts to death, and
Abortion is it okAbortion, is it ok? ENGL 1201 EC 7-28-03 Abortion is a very controversial topic that is hard to take a stand on. It is difficult to understand the loss of a fetus which hasn’t been born. On the other hand, studies show that most unwanted pregnancies result in child abuse, whether it is physical or mental. There are also many cases in which the mother has no means to financially support her child. All of these infants, which are born to mothers who never wanted a pregnancy, have the odds set agai

Spiritual Journeys in The Winters TaleSpiritual Journeys in The Winter’s Tale Throughout the semester we’ve been discussing the importance of spiritual growth to the development of characters in Cervantes’ novellas and Shakespeare’s plays. The concept of a spiritual journey is certainly not unique. Many authors have employed the idea that characters do need to change and grow in order to hold the attention of the audience. In stories like “The Jealous Hidalgo” and “The Liberal Lover,” Cervantes shows how some characters absolutely n
Jesus ChristJesus Christ Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. He was born in Bethlehem in what was then called Judea. No one knows the exact date of the birth of Christ, but he was born some 2000 years ago. The principal sources of information concerning Jesus' life are the Gospels as read in the Bible.

To what extent was Alexander II a Tsar liberatorTo what extent was Alexander II a Tsar liberator? Alexander II did introduce a number of reforms, which were quite revolutionary for that period of time. Many historians therefore believe that Alexander II deserves the title ‘Tsar Liberator’. Views of Alexander II do, however, differ to a great extent, When regarding Alexander II Saunders says “his enthusiasm for change lasted a mere four years, it may be that his reputation as the ‘Tsar liberator’ is ill deserved“ 1this strongly suggests that A
Anthropologys Symbiotic Relationship with PhotographyAnthropology’s Symbiotic Relationship with Photography 9/25/1999 Anthropology 174 It is by no coincidence that the fields of photography and anthropology have evolved together.

Leonard Cohens Song The Future The PhilosophyLeonard Cohen’s Song “The Future” The Philosophy Behind His Lyrics Leonard Cohen, famous songwriter, wrote a song that has a disturbing yet tragically realistic prophecy of the future of human civilization.
