It's just the beginning of this terrible terrible story of three noise kids were walking down a cold street on Halloween night they stop at house it look warm and they were sleepy so they went in. As soon as they walked in the lights flickered and it happened the ghost took Soey. I guess I should tell you the characters first they are Soey, man-man and Joey. So man-man and Joey ran for the door but the ghost shut it with his power. then they heard three voices one said help so they assumed it was Soey another said come closer the last one said I will find you man-man wet his pants then Joey ran and let man-man behind. So then running as fast as he could man-man tried to catch up with Joey. He finally finds him in a room so they both go to sleep thinking they are safe but they weren't. the next morning Joey tries to wake up man-man but it was too late. So Joey goes to find Soey in the basement but all he found was bones. So he went up in the attic to find her but instead he was the one being found. The two people he saw were the ghost and guess who Soey. He tried to save her but she was one of the ghost slaves. she came at him with a knife so he ran for his life. But the ghost was getting bored so he killed them both. And their parents still call them till this…...

...In this essay I’m going to look at some of the important elements in the short-story Wood Grouse on a High Promontory Overlooking Canada. The ones I am going to look at are: The setting of the short-story, a characterization of the two characters in the story, the theme(s), and the ending of the story. The story takes place on a high promontory, the two brothers Gary and Bud are fishing in the lake, but the fish don’t seem to bite. The promontory overlooks Canada on one side and the United States of America on the other. The scenery is peaceful and almost perfect, though in a realistic way. Bud is the younger of the two, being only 15 years old and seemingly an average active teenager. He seems carefree and happy. We are told that he likes baseball and that he likes throwing stones and that while doing so he imagines himself a hunter. Gary on the other hand is quite a bit older, I’d guess about 20-25, as he’s just returned from the war in Vietnam. Gary appreciates the peace around him and notices the beauty in the small things, unlike Bud who is more interested in throwing stones for fun. It’s not because Bud is evil, but simply because Gary has been changed by what he’s experienced in Vietnam. He carries a heavy burden around because of the war, but he doesn’t want to talk about it and when Bud asks him. He simply says to him that he wouldn’t want to know. It also seems like it’s hard for him to admit that he killed people in Vietnam when Bud asks, though I......

Personal Essay

...Personal Essay: Twenty and Serious I was 19, and it was my first week on the job as marketing director for a leading financial services organization in North America. Our awkward exchange was one of many I've experienced as a young woman in a big job. People expect a much older-looking person, not a girl who could pass for a college sorority sister, to be speaking to them about life insurance or finance. I guess I have always looked young for my age. When I was a freshman at a community college, people mistook me for 16. Now that I am almost 21, bouncers still eyed my ID suspiciously checking for validity even at an 18 or older event. Looking younger than your years is a bonus when you're over 40 (or so I hear) but a bummer when you're a 20 year old kid like me, especially a kid who landed a dream job and is trying to command some respect. Before I started my career, being mistaken for someone younger was no big deal. But during my first job as a Marketing Director, I quickly realized that looking "too young" could be a curse for me at work, one that would keep fueling my insecurities even when I landed a position of authority. In my first marketing director job, I had an encounter that scarred me for years. An older woman I was meeting with about our finance services looked me up and down and squealed with amusement: "Well, don't you look all of 12?" Her voice dripped with snobbery. It was hard enough being the lowest person on the totem pole in the office, but having my...

Introduction to Essay

...Advice on Writing an Introduction – Your essay on the text should always include an introduction. In the introduction you indicate what is to be the central focus of your essay on a given text. This may be done in several different ways: A. You may choose to define your focus right away in a very direct manner. "Miranda" tells the story of how the love of a young girl is destroyed when it collides with the cynical, pragmatic world of the adults. The story is an initiation story in which the young main character goes through a development which, in this case, involves disillusionment and loss of innocence as her sincere love is destroyed. B. You may want to start in a more indirect fashion. Perhaps with a central quotation from the text which leads you on to the theme. "But she did understand and she sat hating her mother, whose eyes and smile were telling her that making love with Michael was a natural but subsidiary part of growing up; that what she felt that night and since was nothing" (ll. 164-67). This quotation from the story "Miranda" illustrates what is at stake for the main character in the story and points to the central theme of the story, the destruction of a young girl’s perhaps naive but sincere love by the very people she puts her trust in. C. You may prefer to start with a more general description of the main idea/problem and then move on to the specific treatment of this theme in the text in question. "Growing up and......

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary film making styles and which focuses more on the evolution of a theme or an idea. A photographic essay is an attempt to cover a topic with a linked series of photographs; it may or may not have an accompanying text or......

Other conventions are the same however, despite this key difference and serve to maintain interest in an apparently evolving genre". Steve Neale (Genre Theory) Stuart Hall (Audience Theory) Audience Positioning and Dominant, Negotiated, Oppositional Readings: "Some texts, like The Mighty Boosh may have a number of readings, dependent on audience - a dominant reading could be that it is a postmodern representation of celebrity culture while a negotiated reading could be that it is simply surreal and funny while an oppositional reading could be that it is childish, subversive and offensive". Stuart Hall (Representation Theory) Dominant, Oppositional and Negotiated Readings of Representation: "Stuart Hall's theory (see audiences) is also useful in understanding how some representations reflect the dominant culture e.g. patriarchy, women in The Sun and in Men's Magazines like FHM. However, some representations can be negotiated or even misunderstood (oppositional) as in Four Lions which was accused of being a racist text due to its representation of British Pakistani Muslims".

...An essay on Claire Anderson Wheelers “Vernissage” B When a child is growing up, the parents’ relationship affects the child a lot. A child views the world with fresh eyes. They have not seen many things before and their lives are about learning and exploring. As children grow into adults something changes, their thinking changes and it’s different how a child becomes a grown-up. “Vernissage” is a short story about Alex and his parents, from 2008 written by Claire Anderson-Wheeler. Alex is the main character and he is in the transition from a child to a grown-up person. In the beginning of the short story, there are several things that show us that Alex is a child. He asks many questions like children often do: “What’s in the bag?”, “What did you buy a dress for?” (l. 22-29) In the beginning, Alex shows signs of how he is about to grow out of his childhood, but first we see that his mother still picks him up after school and he asks a lot of questions. He also lets his childish imagination run wild by picturing a man by the name Vernie Sage every time he heard the word vernissage. Alex likes banana sandwiches, which he himself admits is a bit childish “There was something about banana sandwiches, sweet and soft, that made him think of babyfood.” (l. 48-49) and “Suddenly the taste in his mouth was sickly-sweet, and he gulped it down quickly” (l. 77-78). This is point of no return, the banana sandwich symbolises the childhood and the fact that Alex does not want to eat the......

Vernissage Essay

...Vernissage essay Have you ever peeped on your parents? Well Alex has. And he isn’t just peeping. He describes every little thing. Maybe that’s just how it is, to be a child, or maybe that is the stage where a child wants to show, that he turns into a teenager. Describing his banana sandwich as baby food normally means child food aren’t good enough for Alex. He wants to be a grown up and eat grown up food. Making projects about earthworms in Nature class is also one of the childish struggles, you have to go through, if your name is Alex. He even needs to have a babysitter for one single night, while his parents are out for something called a vernissage. All this means Alex hasn’t turned into a teenager yet, but he really wants to. It seems normally for the parents to contact a babysitter, like it happens pretty often. It means that his parents, often are out for something. But that’s not the real problem. The real problem is between Alex’s parents. Alex’s mum Frances sighs several times. She is unhappy with something. Her husband John is always working, and when he gets home, all he thinks about is the next thing he’s going to do. Frances feels used. And she doesn’t earn her husbands respect. She shows up in her new dress in front of John, and his response is “It’s very nice”. You can easily feel the ironic and sadness in the answer. When the parents are out for something, for instance the night in the text, John is not even out with Frances. He’s only at the......

Anime vs Being Childish

...Anime lovers are called Otaku, which is western for 'freak' or Japanese for 'fan.' Those that enjoy anime are shoved into that category for no reason aside from the fact that they like cartoon stories. They are seen as childish, immature, and having no real life. This simply isn't true. There are many reasons that anime is a legitimate art form and "otaku" should be viewed as no different from people who love action movies or love stories.. Many heroes in anime are not typical Western heroes. Our heroes are Rambo, Dirty Harry, and Indiana Jones - somebody with a gun, an attitude, and a way with women. Sometimes the hero is a woman, but these cases are few and far between- women are usually just romantic interests for the hero. You don't get swordsmen, space-age heroes (since Buck Rogers, anyway) or children in our movies-until you go to movies based on history, 80's kids shows, and kid's movies. In anime, the heroes tend to be younger and less capable. Their shows focus on the growth of characters instead of how many explosions movie makers can stuff in. (though there are still lots of explosions). Anime is Eastern-style cartoons, not Western.. Most American adults see cartoons as kid stuff. They 'grew out of it' by the time they were eleven, or so they'll claim. Why do so many people love anime, despite their 'cartoon' roots? The simple, wrong answer is that they don't have the mental capacity to deal with seventy-three seasons of "Friends" or "Everybody Loves Raymond."......
