Why People Dye Their Hair
Many people of different ages ask of teens the question, "Why do you dye your hair?" It\'s a valid question. It seems like the fad these days is to have a different color of hair every week. Red, purple, blue, green, orange, it doesn\'t matter, as long as it\'s new. The crazier the better, the brighter the cooler. I feel I\'m experienced in this area, as I\'ve dyed my hair at least a dozen times in the last couple years. Why do we do it? Most hair dyers probably aren\'t entirely sure of their ulterior motives behind the florescent colors, but I decided to figure it out.
When someone dyes their hair a noticeably bright color, they get noticed. It\'s impossible not to see the green haired girl walking down the hall, or the blue haired boy in your gym class. It\'s immediately the way you\'re first described by your peers. This attracts attention to you, and makes you more known around your school. Everyone\'s talking about your new hair color, about how "crazy" and "cool" it is; or maybe how "gross" it is, depending on how it turned out. You could look like a way cool punk rocker, really trendy, or like your hair grew some major mold. It can depend on the dye or the way you dye it, or sometimes on pure luck.
Sometimes people dye their hair because they need a change. They\'re sick of the brown-haired, boring old person they see in the mirror every day, and want to add a little spice to their look. It\'s really hard to be boring looking when your hair can be seen from a block away. It\'s a valid reason to make a change, and seems like a good idea to me.
A more common reason that people dye their hair, but most wouldn\'t admit to, is to try to be "cool". If making friends or getting respect is your reason for bringing out the dye, I would seriously recommend reconsideration, and would look down on you if that was your only reason. Maybe for some people it would be a perk, but it shouldn\'t be your primary motive for going hair-crazy. If it is, and you dye your hair with hopes of being cool, and it doesn\'t happen, you\'ll be stuck with a hair color that you didn\'t really want, which would definitely not be a good situation. It\'s pretty easy, and sometimes even a little amusing, when your parents or grandparents gasp at the sight of your bizarre locks, but if you don\'t have your friends behind you on it, the cons will much outweigh the pros.
Some people simply think they would look much better with a different color of hair. This usually applies with more natural colors, such as blond, brown, red, or auburn. Most of the time these changes are for the better, especially if they aren\'t too drastic. Going from blond to black could be quite a change, and sometimes fair skin doesn\'t go too well with ebony hair. Interesting if you\'re going for the goth look, but not if you\'re trying to make yourself subtly better looking.
Also, a very effective way of rebelling against your family is by dying your hair. Once they see the stain-covered bathroom and your incredible head of crazy colors, yes, they could scream. Beware of emotional mom\'s, I\'ve heard they faint. And if you\'ve got the extremely aggressive parents, watch out for those scissors, they just might try to cut your hair. But, no matter what they do, you will have made the firm statement that you are your own person and you won\'t listen to reasoning or discipline. Hopefully after a few weeks of grounding your parents will figure out that your hair color WILL wash out eventually, and that their social circle will get over their initial shock and thoughts of what irresponsible parents they are to let their child get away with such a thing.
There are many different ways to dye your hair, depending on how committed you are to the new look. In my own humble opinion, Kool-Aid is a beginners\' step to the entire hair dying obsession. It\'s a non-committal way of trying

During the 20th century, there was an evident disillusion and disintegration in religious views and human nature due to the horrific and appalling events and improvements in technology of this time, such as the Holocaust and the creation of the atom bomb. This has left people with little, if any, faith in powers above or in their own kind, leaving them to linger in feelings of despair and that life is an absurd joke.

Sir Gawain and the Green KnightSir Gawain and the Green Knight Sir Gawain and the Green Knight utilizes the convention of the French-influenced romance. What sets this work apart from regular Arthurian or chivalric romances is the poet’s departure from this convention. The clearest departure takes place at the resolution of the piece as the hero, Sir Gawain, is stricken with shame and remorse rather than modest knightly pride, even after facing what appears to be certain death and returning to his king alive and well.

SymbolismSymbolism Colors in Symbolism Colors can symbolize many different things. Artists use colors in their paintings when they want you to see what they are trying to express. Like if an artist is trying to express sorrow or death he often uses blacks blues, and grays basically he uses dreary colors. You automatically feel what the artist is trying to express. When the artist uses bright colors you feel warm and you feel happiness. In the novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald is like an artist.

They were sporting their new fall colors of red, orange, brown, and yellow. The brittle autumn leaves seemed to be having a party. As the party moved out of sight, I beg
The Outcome of ChangeThe Outcome of Change Wuthering Heights, written by Emily Brontë, can be classified as a Romantic novel, because it contains many tenets of Romanticism. Romanticism was the initial literary reaction to changes in society caused by the industrial revolution: it was an attempt to organize the chaos of the clash between the agrarian and the industrial ways of life. Romanticism was developing in a time in which all of society’s rules, limits, and restraints on how each person should act where being

Some of them are equal to the novel, few are superior, and most are inferior. Why is this? Why is it that a story that was surely to be one of the best written stories ever, could turn out to be Hollywood flops? One reason is that in many transformations, the main characters are changed, some the way they look, others the way they act. On top of this, scene
