In “The Jungle” the characters only main concern is to be employed in order to survive. There was no other way to survive, with that, the ability to experience lighthearted pleasure did not exist for people in lower classes. Having fun was seen more as a luxury rather than a privilege to people with no money. On the other hand, in “The Great Gatsby”, it is almost the complete opposite. Even though work was a very significant part of each persons life, it was not shown as a main focus for any of the characters.
In a time before the warring machine, fruits of conflagration and discord were alien to the earths fertile soil. Before the beast of conflict could arise and wipe hope from innocent hearts, there was tranquility. The paramount example of this tranquil character was The Willowwacks Forest. With a lush canopy and a rich quantity of fruits, berries, and roots, there was the watering hole. Now this watering hole was not a luxerious oasis, nor was it a impoverished puddle, puckered and dry from an unforgiving season.
When beginning this course, I had little knowledge of the depth of diversity found in our world today. I lived in a small town, which acted as a shelter from the harsh realities faced by many ethnicities, but also prevented me from experiencing cultural diversity. With my lack of background knowledge concerning diversity, I would say that my level of cultural competence was nearly non-existent. I had never been exposed to any ethnicities, other than my own, until moving to college. It wasn’t until moving away to college that I realized how naïve I was concerning the diversity of our nation.
Albert Einstein once stated, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” I remember that quote from Jeopardy, but I never actually thought of anything of it. The category was transcendentalism and I remembered that pretty clearly because Alex Trebek was complaining about how long the word was to fit in the box. So when transcendentalism was introduced in our class, I felt a familiar wave of nostalgia hit me. I was pretty excited to start my essay, but I didn’t have time on the weekdays, so I decided to work on it during the weekend.
By the time the three of us made it to our hotel, my mom, my older sister Brittany, and I were exhausted. Exploration of this massive concrete jungle would have to wait until another day. The purpose of our trip was to attend my freshmen orientation at Stony Brook University on Long Island, but we decided to explore New York City while we were there since it was our first time in the city that never sleeps. After my day long orientation at Stony Brook, we ventured around the area I would call home in a few short months.
All Inclusive Vacations Mexico Style If you’re looking for all inclusive vacations then Mexico might be the place you want to look into first. It won’t matter whether you go to the eastern or the westerly side of Mexico, or even whether you go to the interior of Mexico without once visiting its beaches. Various parts of Mexico are know for their wonderful beaches, it would be ashame if you didn’t go and see them. All that truly matters though is that you are finally taking some time off for yourself.
Without money you can 't go to stuff like concerts. But if you get a job you overcome it. I had a barrier once. I overcame it but it took a while.
Last Sunday, I went on the fieldtrip to Oakland to gain a view of the gentrification reality there. Initially my friends were all amazed why I would go there since they had thought there was a dangerous place to visit. Prior to the trip, my impression about Oakland is a city with a longer history than those in south bay, since I noticed there was a Chinatown which was a product of the immigration wave happened centuries ago, and those Cantonese immigrants called Oakland “二埠” (the second port besides San Francisco). After I arrived there, I realized that Oakland was not only a city preserved history but also a wonderland of racial diversity. According to what I learned from the lecture, Oakland was once had its own structure of what kinds
I want to make a difference in this world and I can 't do hat if I do what everyone else does. I never planned on going with the crowd before and I never will. I will know I have broken this rule when I am not being myself so that I can fit in.
Special, the word I hated the most is now a word I love and what I am. I guess I always compared myself to others and I never looked deep into my simplest qualities. The things that make me special were always in me, but I just didn’t notice. It is similar to what happened with Dorothy.
Thats the question i ask my self everyday these past couple of months. I feel as if I never made my own decisions in life. I always depended on my guardians and others to help make my decisions . It’s good to get help from others to make decisions but not all the time. There were time where I would like to do certain things and i would ask a friend how they felt about it and if they negatively commented I would automatically change my mind , there would be parties I would not want to go to but the people i surrounded my self around wanted to go I would force my self to go.
Perhaps a researcher or historian will unearth my documents on a thumb drive in the future. Though I value my work, I have never really thought about them in this way before. I am sad to think about all the documents I have shredded, recycled, or even sent to the trash dump because I thought the I would never have a use for them in the future. Looking back, I may have been correct in assuming that I wouldn’t find value in them, but quite possibly someone in the future may have found them to be artifacts of a specific time period, such as my journals from my freshman year of college when the Gulf War started. My mission as a social researcher has been enhanced by this course.
