Golf is more than just a game to me it connects me to my family, teaches me something new every time I play, and be part of a team. I haven’t been playing the game long but it is now a part of me. This sport gets me closer with my family. It is a chance to spend time with family I normally wouldn’t be around. Too me the most important one would have to be getting a chance to play golf with my father. My father and I don’t have a lot in common so it makes me happy when he asks if I would like to
America is the most well armed nation in the world, with American citizens owning about 270 million of the world’s 875 million firearms (Marshall). Indeed, this is more than a quarter of the world’s registered firearms. The reason why Americans own so many guns is because of the Second Amendment, which states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” (Rauch) This amendment guarantees U.S.

recognition as slingers in the 1850’s. The founder of gunfighting was “Old Man Clanton”, or N. H. Clanton. In 1816, Newman Haynes "Old Man" Clanton was born in Davidson County, Tennessee. On January 5, 1840 Newman Clanton married Mariah Sexton Kelso in Callaway County, Missouri and together they had five boys and two daughters. John Wesley, Joseph Isaac, Phineas Fay, William Harrison, Alonzo Peter, Mary Elise and Ester Ann made up the Clanton Gang. He did not participate in many gunfights though he instigated
Formalism disregards the influence of authorship and contexts – to me, the antithesis of the study of English and History in conjunction. How can a text be completely devoid of a writer’s influence, undoubtedly shaped by specific historical contexts? For example, female representation in literature and history often mirrors the cultural attitudes of the time. Exploring these relationships is an element I enjoy and a key reason why I’d like to study these two complementary subjects at university.
My favorite part of growing up was playing night games with the neighborhood kids and awaiting my father’s vociferous shout to get inside for dinner. Older generations know even more about the familiar experience of playing outside with their peers until the sun set. It would seem as though the fluorescent youth could not be stopped from staying out late. However, in light of new technological advances in social media, a new “hang out” spot has become increasingly popular right from the security
energy overwhelmed my body as I walked onto the floor that afternoon. It seemed that within a second, the tryout was completed. Once again, I was forced to calmly wait for the crucial results.

Celia, a Slave, a book by author Melton McLaurin, shows the typical relationship between a slave woman and her master in America during the 1850s. The story is the perfect example of how relationships between slave and their masters and other non-blacks within the community. This is shown through Celia’s murder of her slave owner, Robert Newsom. It was also shown through the community’s reaction that was involved in unraveling her court case. The Celia personal story illustrated how slave women was
