Out Of Mind March 6th, 2004 English 12 Research Paper Imagine a world where one has a familiar, or a daemon, running alongside them at all times.

She has the same age as me and I probably will found common every day themes from her life that I may have to deal with too. Then many question popped

The Romantic Era (1850 - 1920 C.E.) The Romantic era was a period of great change and emancipation. While the Classical era had strict laws of balance and restraint, the Romantic era moved away from that by allowing artistic freedom, experimentation, and creativity. The music of this time period was very expressive, and melody became the dominant feature. Composers even used this expressive means to display nationalism . This became a driving force in the late Romantic period, as composers used

Creative Writing Bob Bob had never been exposed to outside life. In fact, he lived on a small remote island, deep in the Ocean off the coast of South America. He had been pampered as a child, destined to one day become King and rule all that was around him, Bob had been fed only the finest, most refined foods, and had never seen the tragic elements of life that plagued the world around him. Bob had been taught to be indifferent, not to stand out in any way, and to conform to the general thought
Virginia Woolf Virginia Woolf was a member of a group of writers known as The Bloomsbury Group, named after a residential section of London where Virginia and her husband Leonard lived in the early decades of this century. According to Kathleen McCoy and Judith Harlan, “Woolf’s group rejected the restraints of propriety and the sexual prudery of Victorian society. They were avant garde in art and literature and remarkably free in their interlocking personal lives. Marital fidelity was not honore
Creative Writing My hands were slick with sweat as my shaking fingers cautiously pressed the button. The doorbell rang inside with a clang, and echoed so close to my ear I jumped in spite of myself. Suddenly, the door cracked open, and a pair of eyes shyly peeked out at me. The next thing I knew, my friend\'s face was grinning back at me, as if I was the Christmas present she had always wanted. I was pulled by the hand inside the house, and standing in the doorway, I shouted as loud as I dared,
Creative Writing It was a hot day in August during the summer of 1997. I woke up and felt full of energy. I took my shower, and made my bed and was ready to start a new day. After I made my bed I sat down, and turned on the television, and I watched television for about a half-hour, and my phone rang. I answered the phone, and it was my friend Matt. Matt wanted to know if I could do anything, and I said yes that I could do something. At that point I told Matt to come over. After Matt arrived at
Clever People One of the things I like about writing this column is that I hear from (and about) a lot of clever people. In fact, I\'ve been keeping a file on them for some time now.

The categories and winners are: Best lead for a newspaper column. Mike Nichols of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, for his lead to a

Creative Writing On an exceptionally hot evening early in July a young man came out of the garret in which he lodged in S. Place and walked slowly, as though in hesitation, towards K. bridge. He had successfully avoided meeting his landlady on the staircase. His garret was under the roof of a high, five-storied house and was more like a cupboard than a room. The landlady who provided him with garret, dinners, and attendance, lived on the floor below, and every time he went out he was obliged to
My Two Dads Table of Contents Topic Rational pp. 2 Internet Resources pp. 4 Abstracts pp. Topic Rationale The reason I chose homosexuality as a topic is because it is queer to me. What I do not understand is what would drive people to this way of life. As far as I can tell, people had weird lives when they were younger. Maybe they were dropped on their heads as babies. Maybe they were abused as children, be it emotionally, sexually, mentally, verbally, physically, socially, politically, economic

Creative Writing As a young child I had a most favorite place. It was a tree fort that I built with my big brother on our wooded property up north near a cedar swamp. Back in those days I would play all sorts of games there with friends that I would bring up to our cabin. Behind the island there is a swamp with little islands that we give nicknames to. It is a great place to play and forget schoolwork. The tree fort is not big. It is about 10 feet off the ground. That was high then but not any m

Frederick Douglass Frederick Douglass, a slave in America until the age of 20, wrote three of the most highly regarded autobiographies of the 19th century, yet he only began learning to read and write when he turned 12 years old. After an early life of hardship and pain, Douglass escaped to the North to write three autobiographies, spaced decades apart, about his life as a slave and a freeman. The institution of slavery scarred him so deeply that he decided to dedicate his powers of speech and p

Rome The trial and ultimate death of Socrates may possibly be one of the most unjust verdicts imposed in the world’s history. Socrates was merely a radical thinker in a transitional time in Athens, and after Athens lost the Peloponnesian War to Sparta, Socrates’ principles were just not tolerated. Roman westward expansion and militant domination had yet to happen, as did the trial and death of Jesus Christ. The year was 399 BCE and Athens was a strong and proven democratic government. Athenians
Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini As the twentieth century comes to a close, the world can now look back on a century filled with war, technology, revolution, and growth. When looking back upon the most powerful leaders that shaped past century, it can’t be assumed that all of them had good intentions in mind. In fact, it is these leaders, the ones who set forth goals of destruction and massacre, that have affected the past hundred years the most drastically. The two men who fully represented th
My Writing My writing has always been kind of a surprise to me. I am never quite sure what I am going to come up with. Most of the time I am aware of the subject matter, have an idea of how to approach it, and know what format I will use. It is in the getting started phase that I have the most difficulty. I spend a lot of time stressing about what I am assigned to write. I believe that this stems from the fact that I am always writing for an academic purpose. I am trying to impress the reader (u
Creative Writing Justin- it had been a long winter with lots of snow. Food had been hard to find and the Four Billy-goats Gruff were very thin. Do you know what a goat is? A goat is any of various hollow ruminant mammals related to the sheep but of lighter build and backwardly arched horns, a short tail and usually straight hair. But now the snow had gone from the pasture and the grass was looking fresh and green. Heath - I shall go to the top pasture today Justin – Said the first Billy goat gru
Creative Writing It\'s very dark. So dark it almost hurts my eyes just straining to see into it. While I\'m trying to peer into the darkness my eyes feel like they are glaring and squinting so hard they\'re just slits that I could hardly see out of anyway. They are actually willing themselves to see something-anything. They seem to scream out to my brain to conjure up an image just so they could prove they still work. I suddenly become aware that the blackness that surrounds me is deadly quiet,
Teresa of Avila Catholics recognize some people to be in heaven because of their holy lives. Such people are declared by the Pope to be in heaven. Most saints are people who have died rather than give up their faith. Saints are recognized as having the power to pray to God for specific persons. This is exactly what Teresa of Avila is known for, and in the following paragraphs it will explain it all a lot better and what Teresa of Avila is known for. Teresa of Avila was born in 1515 in Avila, Spa
Creative Writing As a child, on any hot, sunny summer day there was always a good chance that my family and I would be going swimming. Going to our cousins’ house to swim in their pond were exciting times. We parked in their driveway and walked through the very tall pine trees that went up as far as the eye could see and as far down. The trees seemed like an entrance into another world. If I looked up, I barely saw the tips of the trees swaying back and forth by a light breeze. I faintly smelled
Creative Writing From the time I was nine or ten years old, I have had many adult responsibilities. My parents are not always able to do the normal functions of the household, so I had to learn at an early age. My three responsibilities include cooking, cleaning, and taking care of my dog, Libby. Looking back now, I really have had an advantage from doing chores around my house. I feel it gives me a head start for when I am out on my own. I have been cooking dinner for my family since I was ten
Creative Writing Cardboard boxes played a significant role in my childhood days. Don\'t get me wrong; toys were wonderful, too, but nothing could out-do a cardboard box and a few kids to go along with it-especially my two best neighborhood friends, Chris and Nick, brothers who lived three blocks away. Summer was always the perfect time to have a cardboard box. The long, lazy days offered sufficient time to experience the true essence of a box and to truly bond with it. However, in order to bond

Creative Writing As I see her walk in from lunch her brunet hair bounces and she cracks a wide grin that stretches from ear to ear. Her entire body is a perfect picture of bouncing joy. I first notice her lips as she begins to talk about her day. My eyes gaze down a little from her eyes and notice her sanguine cheeks that look as if she has just come from out side. And as she begins to tell me how I should have come with her I notice an interesting aroma on her breath and about her. It is an aro
Creative Writing She takes one last glance at her reflection in the glass door. She pulls it open and slowly enters the office building. As she walks across the floor, her heels clicking on the wood panels, she tucks a stray lock of hair behind her ear. She stands, feet shoulder-width apart, the hem of her navy blue skirt brushing her knees. "Excuse me," she says to the receptionist behind the desk, "I\'m here about the position." As she says this, she hurriedly makes certain that the clasp of h
Handglider Creative Writing On vacation this summer I glanced out the window and saw a beautiful handglider hovering in these pretty mountains. A great looking background surrounded the mountains. About four-hundred feet above the mountain soared the handglider. The pilot who appears about five foot eleven inches wears a yellow jacket and black snow pants. The handglider hangs with a span of about twenty-nine feet. It consists of many wonderfully made colors, such as orange, red, and yellow. As
Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove, or How I learned to stop worrying and love the Bomb is a black comedy about nuclear war. Kubrick\'s original intention was to make a straight thriller about a possible nuclear "accident," and, as is his custmary method, he began researching the topic in earnest -- subscribing to Aviation Week and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, conferring with NATO officials, etc. According to Kubrick: "I started our being completely unfamiliar with any of the professional

Sherman was one of those kids who was small for his age and wasn\'t the brightest crayon in the box. His heart was always in the right place, but his actions weren\'t always thought out. His dirty blond hair drew your attention to his eyes which were a dark green and away from his torn overalls and dusty white shirt. His family was known for their dirty habits r
Pages of Dreams Americans do not like sleek lawyers. However they apparently love to read about them, and in this art form nobody can surpass John Grisham Jr. Grisham’s writing evolved from dreams and inspirations to success. On February 8th, 1955, John Grisham Jr. is born. His father, John Grisham, was a cotton farmer and construction worker, his mother was a homemaker. Growing up in a very small, close-knit, southern Baptist family, parties were off-limits, and so was television. During his sc
Creative Writing as an adult so cash in your chips early and live very dangerously in the now. Do one thing that scare the shit out of you each day, like walking through a P.T.A meeting with an "I am a child molester" sign aroung your neck or if that\'s too tame for you announce medicade cuts at an A.A.R.P meeting. Be ruthless with other people\'s hearts. If you don\'t "Fuck\'em" over first, you\'re just asking to get you\'re ass kicked. But if someone is busting you\'re heart, throw yourself at

Ideology There are effects to any ideology. An ideology in the most common terms is simply a belief. The question is how does ideology effect people? The communistic ideology has greatly affected millions of people. Under communist ideology the individual had to work for everything he received. A man could not keep a draft horse, which he found because that was considered to be an, "unlawful source of enrichment without work." (Drakuliº 2-3) In communism everyone has to be equal for the governme
