Born on October 18, 1997, she knew the mother she was born to would always be one of those three. As she progressed later in life, transitioning at a very young age from life in Brooklyn, New York to the metro Atlanta area she found her other half - Sanjee. Her cousin was more than just family. They were sisters, each other’s “ride or die”, day one, and every other millennial lingo you could think of that signified the lasting importance of a significant other. According to sociologist G.H. Mead, a significant other is someone who makes a lasting impact on your life, not just your non-platonic life partner. But the non-platonic life partner did come later for Fariha, it came in the form of an older, 5 feet and 11 inch, white male that went by the name Daniel Detlefsen. Through the course of her life she became exposed to different situations that proved that these were the three people she would have always come to cherish in her lifetime.
In a split level house in Dunwoody, Georgia, Fariha grew up in a semi-conservative household and a semi-conservative neighborhood with 2 brothers and both parents. She was the middle child, but always felt like the oldest due to her older brother being away at boarding school in Pennsylvania for most of her life and only came around once or twice a year. Her father worked a multi-location business so he was gone majority of the day, resulting in a not so close relationship...

...to come between us like this.”
Daniel gazed at her and sighed, “Look, I promised myself I would not date, not until after I got passed college and the part of my life I should have completed years ago. But I met you and I broke that promise so I could get you before someone else does”.
Fariha stared at him in awe as he left her room and tried to fall asleep.
Ultimately, these three people left such a lasting impression that she could not imagine what her life would have been like without any of these individuals. Each with their own set of qualities and characteristics made them who they were and how they handled being apart of her journey, voluntarily or not. Every situation, both the good and bad ones, were a specific memory to Fariha. And every little moment with her three people are ones she will always remember and hope to create more of in the times to come.

- Ray Bradbury manages to create a highly advanced, dark and desolate cosmos, by including modernistic machines and highly advanced tech, while showing little presence of life and color in his short-story “There Will Come Soft Rains”. The ultramodern technology and presence of radiation suggest that the novel is set after a nuclear holocaust which has wiped out most life, while the robots and houses still strive and continue to serve their purpose, which was to serve us humans. Ray successfully manages to forge an empty, lifeless world by focusing almost completely on machines and strange natural phenomenon like “electric wind” and “mechanical rain”....

- Gender-Bending in She's Come Undone Is Wally Lamb, author of She's Come Undone, "qualified" to write a first-person narrator in a female voice. After all, as a man, what does he know about women's issues. In this essay I will discuss the issue of "gender-bending" writers and discuss Mr. Lamb's use of such tool. The term "gender-bender" usually refers to a pop singer or a follower of a pop cult "...who deliberately affects an androgynous appearance by wearing sexually ambiguous clothing, make-up, etc....

Children can learn by playing in other words learning from what they can and cannot do while they are playing. Learning can also be social and by doing; for instance children can do something their own way and see somebody else doing it another way and they might want to do it that same way as another child did. Or a child can learn something on their own with no help from another child.... [tags: Developmental psychology, Education, Childhood]

- Contemplating the End in Shaving and There Will Come Soft Rains What happens at the end. "Shaving" and "There Will Come Soft Rains" both address that issue, the first referring to the end of a man's life, the second to the end of humanity. Both ends come about through illness, whether that of a dying man or of a society that drives itself to suicide. The microcosm, the macrocosm- both show in their own way that man is mortal, that this too shall pass. The authors seem to have irreconcilable messages about humanity, which are in fact merely two faces of the same coin.... [tags: There Will Come Soft Rains Essays]

- What Dreams May Come When mortality is contemplated, issues of life, death, and the hereafter are usually the first of a myriad of topics to spontaneously arise as if they are from the dark depths of a person's soul. I believe that this is most eloquently stated by Hamlet: For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. (III. i.) This passage served as inspiration for Richard Matheson, the author of the novel, What Dreams May Come.... [tags: What Dreams May Come]

- She's Come Undone: Female Voice One of the most interesting aspects of She's Come Undone is the fact that it is written by a man but is told from a female's point of view. Because of his gender, it is impossible that Lamb could have experienced many of the hardships that Dolores must deal with in his novel. However, Lamb writes with a certain understanding of Dolores and her pain. In She's Come Undone, Lamb addresses issues often avoided by male authors, including female friendships and abortion....
