Wallace, David Foster "This is Water" Kenyon College Commencement Speech 2005 The general argument by David Foster Wallace in his work "This is Water" is that sometimes the most obvious realities are the hardest to comprehend. More specifically, he argues that thinking negatively is not a choice but a natural setting and we need to start thinking cognitively and outside the box. Wallace performs this speech for a group of graduating college students to prepare them for the future life they are about to embark on. He includes the grocery store example so that the reader's can connect to the story because they have gone through that situation themselves; he is trying to connect to the audience.
In most adaptations of the book Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, Ichabod Crane, the main character is depicted as a police officer instead of the goofy teacher as the book goes. From the standpoint of the book, a teacher was a fitting position for Ichabod to be goofy and advance the plot by eating at student’s houses by eating, which was his favorite thing to do. This character is great for a short fun cartoon but, when the story is made to bring in a profit and appeal to a larger audience the idea of staying true to the story line changes. One reason why the change from teacher to police officer would have been made is the fact that there are more opportunities to introduce action and adding plot that is interesting and intriguing. For example,

Should Students be allowed to eat during class hours? Eating snacks during class hours is one of the few causes of occurring problems to teachers and some students who is not in favor of this. Generation by generation, our working force and time is being changed; including in academics, there’s a lot of work to do off and in school especially to students. Whereas in our history there is still enough time for taking snacks before and after class, where in today there are factors in which taking snacks in the usual time is disabled.
On that fateful day, he and his friend had ran into the bakery with knives and demanded bread, only to be taken aback by the shopkeepers cool demeanor and strange request- instead of simply giving them whatever they wanted, he strikes a deal with them. If they can sit with him and listen to an entire Wagner album, he would give them the food for free, without ever speaking of the incident to a soul. They awkwardly sit down and listen with him, then take everything they can fit into their bags and leave. The event left the boy
“Hey, come sit with us!” , he offered. I was surprised at first, but then overjoyed at his offer. I practically sprinted over to his table, which I promised to myself I would never do later on. I barely ate my homemade lunch trying to listen in and involve myself in conversation.
While in between classes I went to the vending machine to fix my hunger I was really craving a bag of chips at the cost of $1.25 I didn't have any change so I put in $2. After getting the bag of chip, seeing the I left the change in the vending machine for the next person use. Later that day, while in class I noticed one of my classmates got a haircut recently and I told him I like his haircut he then replied thank you because he felt self-conscious about it. Finally, to end all the acts of kindness, while on my way to my car I saw a random stranger and just
In The Divide, author Matt Taibbi conveys to the reader the inner workings of temporary assistance offices. Taibbi argues that in order to receive benefits, one must wait hours in line at the offices and hopefully be accepted to get benefits. Even after waiting, they may be rejected for discrepancies found in their homes, such as clothes not suiting for a single mother or a child at school when you are asking for food stamps for him. An example that Taibbi discussed was a couple working at a fast food restaurant that was expecting a child.
As I walked into the cafeteria, I caught a whiff of the food being prepared in the cafeteria and thought to myself, “Why can’t we go off-campus to get lunch?” While SLA, the lunch program at Catholic High, provides the school lunches, there could be an alternative solution to this. Unfortunately, students are detained at school during lunch hours and are not able to leave campus during lunch forcing them to be served by SLA or bring their own lunch. If Catholic High School were to introduce an open-campus lunch, students and faculty would benefit greatly. While SLA does provide the lunch at CHS, they do not live up to their standard of “high quality, nutritious, and cost efficient”.
Dear, James Patterson The book House of Robots by James Patterson,taught me about acceptance and that everything is done for a reason. My favorite part of the book is when Sammy has too take E too school with him and the embareses Sammy at school when Sammy goes too the bathroom and E says don 't forget too wash your hands buddy and when Sammy comes out and gives him a hug,and says give lots of love too get it. E causes trouble at lunch when he starts a food fight at school and tries too show off in class,english class.
The most popular snack was always an icee, and as I sat around my friends they would teach me how to say it in Spanish. Raspado- and I with my imperfect accent would never say it correctly, but it made no difference, to my friends and I, I was apart of them now. Most may think in order to fit perfectly within a community
It gets confusing just like the other eighteen things about school, which class you should try the hardest at and what classes don’t matter one bit. I entered in my locker code and grabbed my superman lunchbox from 3rd grade. It’s funny how in elementary you are so cool if you have a character lunch box, but in middle school if you have one, you 're then the awkward guy. “Hey Justin, what’s up!” Tom shouted from across the lunchroom.
