She even states, “I could do some things well. Some things I was god at, like math or painting or even sports, but the second a boy put his arm around me, I forgot wanting to do anything else, which felt like a relief at first until it became like sinking into muck.”(Minot, 295) This is such a powerful, and eye opening statement due to the fact that she loves the feeling of being in the moment, and knowing that it was a relief that she was appreciated for something that she could be “good” at. On the contrary, she then takes the audience aback when she compares her passion of sex, to sinking into muck. What could she have meant by that? Could it symbolize the experience of when you step into a lake and everything is beautiful with crystal clear
Throughout the book Holden describes phoniness in different ways and what each person he is describing that is phony. In the beginning of the book Holden believes that everyone at Pencey Prep are phonies because they are more interested in becoming a part of soceity to look good. He also feels that people at Pencey Prep don’t say anything honest and are super judgy. In the 4th chapter he says that people in movies are phonies beause they use fake emotions and lie in the part that they are playing. Overall in the book holden uses the word phony as that when people lie or have a certain tone to ther voice that seems phony.
A contradiction that was found in the the text was when the children let Margot out of the closet. This was a contradiction because beforehand, they were all too happy to lock Margot in the closet. Text evidence that shows this is “Hey, everyone let's put her in the closet before teacher comes!” (Bradbury 130). Since they hated her so much, they even went so far to as imprison her in a closet, so this shows that they really did not like her. Another example of them being mean to her is “‘What’re you looking at?’ said William .
Everybody in the world knows the saying, “treat others the way you want to be treated”. A colossal amount of people don’t realize what this quote actually means, or maybe they just don’t accept to be treated how they should be treated, all people should be treated equally with respect, manners, care, and love. However, for a weird reason people on Earth don’t choose to accept what is right for all of us. Furthermore, the show “Spongebob Squarepants” has numerous actions that remove a frame or gesture off a character. For example, if Patrick was melancholy, Spongebob would make him feel superior by buying him something, or doing something to make him chuckle.
The discussion about gender beauty often leads us down many paths, we can discuss how women are mistreated, we can discuss how men don’t have to conform to the same ideals, we can discuss how misogoney has cast a large shadow on how we view beauty, or we can discuss how men are often left out of the conversation while they suffer in silence too, we can discuss the historical aspects of gender beauty, explore the philosophical reasons behind it, or research the biological motivation for such standards. But something we seldom investigate is how discussing gender beauty can easily lead to an adverse effect than the one we set out to achieve. It is a phenomenon that we’ve all been guilty of, one that I, myself, am guilty of, even during this very report.. It’s the
As everyone is dissimilar, the author is aware that the differences we all have, are not as contrasting as it is believed. Moreover, she deems that even though we are all unique because of our background, appearance, and ethnicity, we are all humans and we all live in this world together. She states that she “if we do not learn how to accept each other and our own selves, who we think we are and who we really are will keep us confused.” In other words, the author believes that society seems to be so engrossed in our ethnicity that as a result, will end up blinding people from the diverse possibility of a multicultural
Furthermore, because I know humans are affected by stress, I secretly trigger conversations about things that have her stressed out, because we all need someone to lean on. My help has always been at their disposal when they need it. We recently finished building a storage and putting tile to the floor, I am always optimistic to new projects and perspectives. What I am aiming to do by being unconditional, is give them back a small piece of love, just like they have been doing over many years with people that cross their way. I have had a great impact on them, and so have they on me.They dug deep and discovered one of my fatal flaws, I told them about my past and why I hesitate to speak about myself.
She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening. (Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not.
People always get misjudged and want to say who or what a person is like before they even meet him or her. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, has many examples of misjudging people, and some of those people could be better, or worse, than what that person judged. Most of these characters in the book do not have the sense to meet someone before they judge them. Even if a character knows a character, they still judge, and they judge wrong most of the time. People just don’t have enough sense, or manners, to not judge.
In the end of these musings, however, I am left feeling somewhat bereft and irresponsible. I am all too familiar with this cycle of disenchantment and alienation. I get moody, melancholy, and withdrawn because I feel that no one appreciates my efforts. Although my mood becomes a bit sordid, I do not become envious or resentful of friends living the perfect, blithely, Instagram life. Perhaps I do not envy them because I have never caved into wanting fun and blissfulness in excess; I simply find it more self-rewarding to work.
