    by phonies. Every one of them, the bros gulping down foamy beers as if it would somehow prove their masculinity, the crashers getting stoned in some dark corner, the girls clustering together because they can’t stand alone, even for a moment—every single one is so typically high-school, so full of shit. Where am I? I’m sitting on a couch with two couples who have clearly disregarded my presence, so, trapped in between and unsure of where to look or what to do, I stare into the depths of my red cup

    Her. My best friend, my un-biological sister, the calmness of my drama. She has many titles to her name, well from me at least. But unfortunately bad friend is one of them. It all started last year. Our first year in a new school. Our first year in middle school. I can just remember about how we were wishing things wouldn’t change. But they did. This past year my very best friend has treated me like dirt. I was not the wind beneath her wings, but the dirt beneath her feet. She has treated me like

    Critcal Analysis of CATCHER IN THE RYE 10 Quotes and Responses from The Catcher in the Rye "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth." This statement actually caught my full attention. I like the way that he started this

    Citizenship There are plenty of reasons for schools sending us to work experience. I believe that work experience gives us pupils a taste of the world of work. This would show and give the pupils a rough idea of how working life is. Also it will help them in the future on what they would be interested to achieve and what they would desire to be. In Kelmscott School they send us to work experience in Year 10. I worked in T.K. Maxx during my work experience. In my work experience I was

    As I begin this assignment, I really don’t know what to write. Should I begin with how I was born and rise up in a country that is far away from American? Maybe talking a little bit about my background will help my classmates get to know who I am, and that is the least thing I can do now. I was born in Saigon City, Vietnam, a country located in Southeast Asia, within a big family. My parents have five elder brothers, two sisters before they have me. I had problems after my birth; a little disorder

    Nowadays, people get so pre-occupied with their external environment that they don’t feel attention to themselves. This typical scenario has been the concern for almost every person in this planet. The ones who are affected are mostly those who belong to the urbane society. Professionals, self-employed individuals and students belong to this social order. The paradox of our time as shown here affects us always in our daily activities. We tend to forget ourselves and pay much interest on our day-to-day

    Honesty

    It was my aunt who taught me the meaning of honesty. Not because she actually was honest, but because she lied all the time. I think she felt that the easiest way out of any given situation was generally the best way out. For her, that meant telling a lie that sounded believable. As a young child I thought it was cool to lie and get out of things so easily and being around my aunt was the main problem. Naturally, when ever I would come to her with a problem, concern, or a question wondering what

    The Battle of Two Halves - Original Writing The wind whistled in my ears as I sat on the windowsill. Tears ran down my cheeks. I couldn't believe what I had been told. I was in shock. I couldn't believe it. I wouldn't believe it. My heart felt like an iron weight; it felt like it had sunk down beside my stomach. So much information in so little time; my brain was overflowing. The pressure was high, yet my hopes were low. Life felt worthless. My sheer existence felt meaningless, as though

    Never, when the cards are down, go to the park south of Critchdale. The lights, for one, are always low casting shadow upon shadow onto the ground, which feels as though with every step you are getting closer and closer, to the end. The freshly cut grass pushes the aroma of fertiliser and everything beneath your feet up your nostrils. The air in the park south of Critchdale is dry like nothing you have ever experienced before. Your throat goes dry like a barren desert with just one gulp of

    Hurricane Hits England In the first cluster of shots, the director immediately establishes the setting by showing the wallpaper and swaying chandelier in the room. The swaying chandelier is shown for a few seconds, and then the camera immediately focuses on the swinging swings. The director has shown the strength of the hurricane by using inanimate objects, moving without anyone pushing them. In the background, a narration of the poem by Grace Nichols is heard: "The howling ship of the

    Liz looked at Sarah, regretting she had come along with them in the first place. “Relax, Liz.” she said. “I really shouldn’t be here, Sarah. Can’t I go home?” Liz said. John smiled. “He’s not gonna bite. He’s really nice. You know he is, he’s been at your place a billion times.” He said. Liz nodded, but looked pleadingly at Sarah. “We’ll be right back.

    Real Boys by Christopher Booth Outline What this section of the book is trying to address here I think, is the need for people, (parents especially) to be aware of signs of depression in young males. The first chapter in this section goes through different scenarios and real life stories of boys that have had depression, and have been afraid to talk about it, or even didn't really even know that was what they were suffering from.

    Alice took an unsteady breath, placing her hand on the knob. She was shaking, which of course was quite unusual for a vampire, but given the circumstances it was appropriate. Her slender fingers had an alabaster contrast to the dark bronze of the door knob; almost making it seem she was glowing. It was all just a cruel joke. It had to be… Alice tried to reassure herself. She tried to tell herself that she would be in the house, her and Charlie both. She closed her eyes, turning the knob, opening

    Make-up was 100 percent forbidden, and because of that, I craved it all the more. Each day, while waiting for the van to take me to school, I would creep into my mother’s room, hoping to catch a glance of the mysterious magic and beauty that transformed her from an ordinary housewife into a Queen. That was what she was, I decided. The Queen of make-up. How I loved to watch her bat on a bit of lipstick, comb on a little mascara, and circle her eyes with eyeliner before heading off with a perfume-scented
