  • Every Year

    MY SPECIAL PERSON "When I entered the classroom, for the very last time, I looked around at every little detail, many of which I'd probably ignored, for the past four years. Birds were singing in a synchronised melody as they flew past our classroom window. There was the natural aroma of fresh coffee coming from the teacher's lounge next door. My classmates were sitting at their usual desk waiting for the first lesson to begin. But something was different today, something wasn't right. And as I ...

  • People Base Stereotypes On The Media
    359 words
    Prejudice In Society The world that we live in today, although improving, is tainted with cruelty and hatred toward different races. Personally, I have never considered myself to be racist. Growing up attending predominately white catholic schools, though, really sheltered me from any type of diversity. Between first and twelfth grade, I could count on one hand how many African-Americans I knew. Living in a society like this, I had a tremendous culture shock upon enrolling at the University of C...

  • Their Friends And A Need

    I know it's Christmas and everyone is filled with the holiday spirit, or at least I hope you are. Instead of giving you some sappy holiday story though, I'm going to pitch you something real. Are there some days where you feel you just can't stand people because of the way they act? Or, are there just some people that you can't stand because of their clothes, appearance, or maybe even the people they chill with? Just let me ask you one question, why? Don't know? Of course you don't. A study done...

  • Pessimistic My Friends

    Environment or Hereditary? How do we become the people who we are? Is it the environment in which we grew up or, is it passed on through genetics. Throughout my life I have seen my personality traits differ from the traits that my parents carry on. I think the surroundings you grow up in have a major effect on how you turn out. Genetics only influences the child's appearance. First of all, in my life I carry the trait of closeness. I prefer emotional intimacy and close ties with others. For exam...

  • My Circle Of Friends

    Who am I During all of high school, I seemed as if I were hiding behind a mask. When I was at home I was a totally different person. At school I was trying to be a person who could fit in, but the more I tried the more it didnt seem to work. Everywhere I went I would censor what I said depending on my surroundings and the people that were with me. Most of the time I would not say anything at all because I was afraid of being embarrassed. I would always have to change my mode when different peopl...
  • True Friend
    762 words
    Dying Softly "Nobody heard him, the dead man, / but still he lay moaning:" (lines 1-2). This is how many people go on through life. Many are dying inside but you would never know. It is possible for people to create masks to hide their emotions. Sometimes these masks are so deceptive that even close friends or family members cannot see through then until it is too late. In Stevie Smith's poem, "Not Waving but Drowning" the writer effectively highlights how someone's cry for help can be mistaken ...

    Life is an unpredictable thing and one does not know what he has until he faces something that would turn his life around. We tend to take many things and people in our lives for granted. In my case, the people whose love and care I took for granted were my friends. I also underestimated the significance of living among people versus a complete isolation. One particular incident made me rethink my values. It was the month of July of 1991, and I just graduated from high school. My two classmates ...

    Morning yall... Yesterday I was reminded that I had to do a talk on friendships, and unusually nothing immediately came to my mind. However, last night I was looking through the red book that Mrs. Larkin gave all of us a number of weeks back now and realised how complex friendships actually are. I took note of some of the points involved in creating friendships and maintaining them. There were six words written in bold. Loyalty, commitment, honesty, trust, generosity, and understanding.

    Dear Richard Wright, Hi, this is one of the millions of your admirers who love and read your book, "Black Boy.
