I tried to get my revenge on him. After all he killed my dear wife! Boy I was wrong, turns out Tom had just retuned back from the city. He told me everything. He was not behind the wheels of that damned car. But he knew who was drivin it. That rotten Jay Gatsby. Gatsby borrowed that clown car that afternoon. Tom said he knew Gatsby well. He said that Gatsby had been sneakin’ all around town and having affairs with god knows how many women all over the place, and my beautiful Myrtle was probably just one of his picks. I swore things won’t end well for that son of a…. Everything is crystal clear now, “God sees everything,” (8.102-105) I swear thing will not end well for this fool. I will get my doll’s revenge, even if it is the last thing I do before I die. Excuse me officer, but I have no further
Tom Walker was on his way to his home in the big city of Boston, MA. He was headed home from a busy and stressful day of work. On his way, Tom started feeling reluctant about going home. He knew as soon as he had gotten home, his wife would start whining and complaining. Tom was miserable with his wife because all they did was fight and argue. Instead of going straight home, Tom decided to take a little detour. As he was driving, Tom noticed a path he’d never seen before, so he decided to go down the path.

Tom read the name multiple times in his head before coming to the conclusion that it was his co-worker. Suddenly there was a rustle in the bushes and out of the darkness Tom heard a voice.

Since I was young, I have been passionate about lending a hand, to a person I felt needed support and this passion helped shape what my future may hold.

Many numerologists believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear to be chance. Some believe that 11:11 is a good sign or represents a spiritual significance. There are also other superstitions like Friday the thirteenth. The number thirteenth is probably the most common of all superstitions. Many places, countries, and people have tried to stay away from the number thirteen. For example many people will not get married on the thirteenth of any month. Tall buildings will skip the number thirteen as a floor and room number. It is also said that if there are thirteen people seated together one will die within the next year. People fear that if they have anything to do with the number thirteen they will have bad luck. One exception of friday the thirteenth being unlucky is if you were born on it.

I believe I was stuck down here in the recesses of Leon’s subconscious because of the lack of oxygen we experienced at birth. I see and feel what Leon does, but I have no say or control over whatever he does. Leon is not aware I am part of his psyche. My circumstance is somewhat comparable to that of a stroke victim or person in a coma, they can hear and feel everything around them, but they can’t respond and are totally helpless Leon and I tend to see things differently. Up is down, black is white, right is wrong; everything has always been backwards with us. This is why to keep my sanity I decided to call myself Noel. It’s been a long and frustrating thirty years of never being able to relate to the outside world what I think and who I think we are or should be. There is a single process whereby Leon and I have acquired two distinct personal identities; it is how we were singularly exposed to the norms, values, behavior, and social skills growing up, but the end result was we were
Bicycle Thieves is an Italian film about a man who loses faith in every sense of the word, figuratively and literally. Antonio pawned a Fides bike (“Fides” is Italian for faith), which was then stolen from him. The movie follows Antonio and his son looking for his bike around Rome. Antonio is a pessimistic man with no faith in anything and he is awfully quick to feel defeated. This could be a result of the chaotic time period in Italy he is in; a time of great economic depression. He turns to two traditional institutions that are known for instilling hope in people during troubled times for help finding his bicycle. The first is a spiritual institution, the church and a fortune teller, which at this time in Italy was exceptionally important.
