I believe that being born in Italy was the best place to be born because of the snow and how nice the weather is all the time. I believe that having my grandparents there and going to see the them once a year is great so I don’t forget the language and I get to eat amazing Italian food every day. I believe having my cousins in Italy is also fun because I get to see them and play with them to see what has been happening in their life’s. I believe that packing to move was very hard and I would have to get ready for a new life in a new place. I believe moving to France was a great choice by my parents and unpacking was very hard but got it done quick.
Something that is not often thought about when banning a book, is the culture you’re throwing away with it. Using the same example of “The Great Gatsby” being banned, every young adult misses out on learning about the culture of the roaring twenties. There are other books that could teach high school students about the culture of that time period, but none can do it quite as good as “The Great Gatsby”. It is such a classic, that even if you haven't read the book or watched the movie yourself, you still know what it is, kinda like the Titanic. During the roaring twenties it was all jazz, parties and wealth.
There are millions of books to choose from in the world today, some are about eternal love others about adventurous teenagers living in a dystopia. Oddly enough a very smart naval officer in the war wrote a book about humanity 's true ways and how we genuinely are and who we can become. Lord of the Flies is the book that was popular in its day and still is. Its full off loose ends, foreshadowing and pure evil. But William Golding keeps us all guessing till the shocking 12th chapter when we learn the true meaning of become a savage and what we can truly develop into.
Georgia Daze was very impactful in my decision in coming to the University of Georgia. As a high school senior, I was a bit skeptical about attending a university where the Black population is less that 10%. Georgia Daze showed me that I would not be alone on this large campus. The organization welcomed me into the “BUGA” family with open arms. Though I was with a group of strangers, I never felt uncomfortable or out of place; the feeling of family was overwhelmingly beautiful.
In the first few chapter of Shelley’s novel, Victor describes growing up in great detail. From his loving parents, to his great friendships, Victor Frankenstein had a very happy childhood. He even goes as far as stating that “no human could have passed a happier childhood than myself.” (page 36) Growing up Victor also had a strong desire to learn about things
Fleetwood struggled with many of their problems, but won a Platinum and Grammy award for their music, and got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making Fleetwood Mac one of the most emotional and one one of the greatest bands of the 20th century. Most people think Fleetwood Mac is a Rock and Roll band, but that’s not how they started. Fleetwood didn’t start as a rock and roll band, they actually started as a blues band (Lowe, 2004). They were originally a blues
Much of the writing that has been published regarding the Progressive era has helped propel it forward as a time of “prosper, middle-class control,” in the minds of young Americans across the nation. Generally considered a highpoint of American political history, the Progressive era has been a benefactor of positive reporting in textbooks through much of history. Although, its alleged connection to socialism caused a significant change in reporting during the years of the Second Red Scare. In examination of five U.S. History textbooks spanning from 1930 through 2011, it is easy to see common themes that historians have kept through the years, as well as how current events played into the writing of history. As we have experienced, recent
In Ireland, it’s normal to meet and connect with someone new everyday—on the train, in class, or even just walking along the street. It’s an atmosphere of welcomeness, and I find that is a quality that transfers to the Irish community of Holyoke, near my hometown of Chicopee. Holyoke holds a large St.Patrick’s Parade every year, and during that time, I have fond memories over the years of joining strangers for a barbecue and sharing decorations with children we had never met. I did not at the time associate this with being Irish, but now am certain that this friendliness is specific to the culture. Within the other communities in my town, it would be odd and unusual to invite a stranger into our home, regardless of the celebration.

Serving in the military is a family tradition. I am grateful for all the opportunities that this country gives to its citizens and I felt like joining the military was a great way to give back to it. I took an oath of justice in defense of the liberties; to preserve peace and to calm the winds of war (Scott, 1). Being a veteran is now something that is part of me and describes myself. Since I joined the military straight out of high school, I decided to go back into school and pursue a career in business marketing.
Hi Professor Fernandez, This is Kim Phuong Nguyen. I took your Chemistry 110 course Spring 2015 and I found it to be one of the most enjoyable courses I have ever taken. You may not remember me, as I often came into lab on Mondays when you were there. Chemistry has always been a more challenging course for me, but I was very proud of that A I received from your class. I know that you are a busy professor, so I will just get straight to the point.
