    After twelve years of school, college is the last place to go until I'm finally out in the real world. No one knows what the future has in store for them, they can only try as hard as they can to make it what they want it to be. From as far back as I could remember I've always wanted to be a nurse, doctor, movies star, teacher, etc. , but there is one thing that goes hand in hand with growing up to become that, which is school.

    Stranger On A Train According to me, the model of 'the classic cinema' is respected in the movie Strangers On a Train. The movie starts on a train, where we are introduced to the two main characters, having a conversation. The subject of the conversation is basically the most important part of the setup. By listening to them, we could predict the direction that the story was going towards. Throughout the rest of the introduction, we are introduced to the rest of the important characters. The fir...

  • Momentum Elastic Collision

    Abstract Measurements of velocity and mass of two objects colliding, support the conservation of linear momentum. The dynamics of different masses distinguish velocity values experimentally. Video recordings of two colliding masses can be manipulated to extract frames displaying distance verses time. Computer software enables us to derive the velocity. Different masses were tested to determine an increase, decrease, or equal effect. From this data, we ultimately derive the momentum of each cart ...
  • Things Fall Apart Chinua Achebe
    326 words
    I felt the ending of this story was very insufficient compared to the rest of the book. The story was very good about asking questions and answering them through later text. The ending really leaves you hanging about the entire story. Did the clan ever accept Christianity? Was the church ever re-built? What happened to the other elders after Okonkwo's death? Was justice ever taken to the guards who tormented them when the people who claimed themselves to be godly held them captive? How can the a...

  • The Pedestrian One Rest Story
    406 words
    The odd one is often confused as the strange one and never considered the right one. For this matter, I enjoyed reading the works of Ray Bradbury in "The Pedestrian." Leonard Mead, whom was the main character and protagonist in this story, was considered by many as being antisocial. Yet the ironic view of the story showed that he was the only social being in the world of Bradbury's literature. For many in the story, social was translated as being normal and indifferent. Depending on how you defi...
