The Test Craze - Test Jonathan and I are trying to find out what gender I am. Or, rather, we are trying to find out what gender I am supposed to be. I have, throughout my life, been fairly sure I was female, but there is a new test online that claims it can predict genders with 100% accuracy. Jonathan already took it himself, and afterwards seemed even more self-actualized than usual. Jonathan is the only person I have ever heard describe the theories behind Catholicism as "too mean", and, being the sort of person who likes to share love, kindness, and self-actualization with friends, he has made me next in line for testing....   [tags: Personal Narrative Original Writing] 2618 words

Parallels between Emily Dickinson's "39" and the Biblical Book of Job - In one of my favorite poems by Emily Dickinson, ‘39’ or [49] published in 1858, she almost parallels the life of Job in the Bible who lost all he had, but because he was faithful all of his loss was restored; I like that there are so many ways to interpret the loss and blame in this very short poem; for example, her loss could be a loss of possession or a loss of a child because “in the sod” could refer to either to an actual plot of land with its crops and the possessions that would come with it or to burying deceased children; to be a beggar could mean that she is literally poor and landless, which would mean that she had no way to provide for herself, or that she had no children and prayed for them; when she says that angels “reimbursed her store” twice it could indicate either the miracle of pregnancy or to being endowed with property when in need; I also love that in the last two lines that she both blames God and implores him; at once she addresses him as both burglar and father in the closing of the poem....   [tags: Emily Dickinson, Job, Bible, poetry,] 527 words

But we never can tell whether they’re laughing at the Indians or the whites” (13). In this example, Victor is doubtful about this satiric and ironic situation. Even though Thomas makes money from the whites, Victor is not sure if it is right for the Indians to make money from the whites that way because allowing the whites to run their poles across the Indian land can cut apart their land and detach Indians from their inheritance and tradition....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
