OCD As A Positive Way Of Life - I have many times asked the question, "Why?". Why is being obsessive-compulsive a bad thing and why has it been labeled as a disorder or a personality defect. I have found that this 'disorder' is necessary for some people to bring order to their lives. Although it can be harmful to some people, leading to seclusion and inability to act, in me and in others it has given us a way to organize our lives. I do not even believe that the term 'obsessive compulsive disorder' is accurate. The whole concept of being obsessive-compulsive is being orderly; to say that it is a disorder is quite flawed....   [tags: Personality] 632 words

The Amish Way of Life - Many, who have never had the opportunity to witness the Amish culture, may be simply missing out on one of the simplest ways of life. Dressing like they never made the turn of the century, having a horse as the main means of transportation, and not having a camera on hand to take family photos may be just a few of the things that we often observe about the Amish culture from our point of view.

The Combray Section of Marcel Proust's Swann's Way - The Combray Section of Marcel Proust's Swann's Way        The "Combray" section of Marcel Proust's Swann's Way is an extended meditation on an idyllic past. The book begins, though, not with recollections of Combray, but with a description of the narrator's half-asleep state, a state of consciousness where he does not know where, or even who, he is. The expanded memories of his past, then, seem an attempt to establish a stable sense of self, a sense that continually eludes him. In this exploration, which constitutes the entirety of the "Combray" section, we find the narrator, a young man with literary aspirations, struggling to understand the characters of his childhood in a way t...   [tags: Swann's Way]
