I arrived at the office building early and sat in the parking lot, but soon I found sitting there was making my nerves cringe, so clutching my document called “The Forgotten Girl”, I locked my car and hurried inside to the large professional looking lobby, fearing the whole time I was being watched from windows above for no reason other than to see how fat I was. I tried to think of the words my husband would say “I’m so proud of you, you can do
I ended up getting the letter the next day during homeroom. While I sat there reading it, I not only laughed about how apprehensive I acted the day before, but I realized how bad I wanted this. I started thinking to myself that I was competent. I had the requirements to become part of National Honor Society. Why was I so nervous in the first place?
Mrs. Amling running after me asking where I am going. I run to Mr. Dunnings office and the secretary stopped me right before I could push the door open with all my might. She asks, “What do you need?” I stutter for a second, “Some pants.” She gives a questioning look and asks, “What 's wrong with yours?” I stand there still feeling my face turning red as a tomato. “I pooped.” She repeats, “Its ok”. She leads me to the nurses office where she opens up a cabinet and asks, “What size?” I
Red herrings are used many times throughout this book to try to throw readers off track. At the beginning of the book, Matheson made it seem like this book would have a happy ending for the couple, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis. When Mr. and Mrs. Lewis got a “cube-shaped carton sealed with tape, their
A few seconds later, after silence had filled the courtroom, I spoke up and ordered Tom to answer. He later said that Mayella hugged and kissed him, and then left the house immediately because Mr. Ewell was coming back home. I pulled the cigarette from out of my mouth, one-third of it was already gone. I actually wanted to believe Tom, he seemed to take things seriously, rather than Mr. Ewell, who acted as if the whole trial did not matter, as if it was some big joke to him. A few minutes later, Mr. Gilmer began to question Tom.
I spot a pencil and paper, and write the angriest message for her.That is, until I get a message from Thomas Longwoods Acting Classes. They 've comfirmed my application and have enrolled me. This must 've been a miracle, I havent enrolled or applied yet and theyve accepted me. Out of sheer joy, I forget my hunger and race to my room. "Dinners ready!"
She looked at me with big eyes and mouthed, “I’m so nervous.” I sat there nervously picking at the label across my suit and listening to music at an unreasonably loud volume. Soon the official who was getting us all in order called for us to stand
She only needs one reference to Harry Potter and then everyone knows who she is. She uses a lot of energy on humor in the first part. Maybe because she is nervous, which she indicates that she is with “But the weeks of fear and nausea I have endured at the thought of giving this commencement address have made me lose weight. A win-win situation!” (Page 1, column 1, line 7-10) maybe she wants to get rid of her nervousness or perhaps she just wants a bond with the audience before talking more serious. She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now.
But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently. She pretends to be happy with Tom, although she confronts the fact that she does love Gatsby and his material. Gatsby uses the fact that Daisy’s life is filled with materialism to sway her to fall back in love with him. When she first sees Gatsby’s house she exclaims, “that huge place there” (pg 90), showing how the first thing she looks at are the material things, such as how big Gatsby’s house is. (add a final
This hesitation helps build the suspense and makes the reader question what is on the paper and why Murayama has not told the woman why he carries the folded piece of paper with him. Finally, he allows the woman to see the paper which “was soft, the worn folds releasing a leathery smell, and at once I saw that it was my son’s handwriting, [...] releasing a swell of memories that soon crested with gratitude for this scrap of Yasushi that made it back” (427). This realization made it clear to the woman that Murayama met Yasushi while waiting for deployment. Knowing that Murayama knew Yasushi, the woman knew Murayama shared truthful information about her son. Although she has memories of Yasushi and his belongings, this paper was the last thing he wrote before he passed away.
