  • Clique Groups

    The breakfast club was to say the least a boring 80's movie. But it was a good movie for the purpose of analysis. Simply put, it will not be on my list of movies to rent next time that I am at the rental store. I chose to explain the points of view of Andrew, the jock, and Allison the loner / quite person. I will also be making use of the key terms Clique Groups, and Identity Crisis. At the start of the movie, Allison was a person off in a corner by herself. She didn't talk to anyone, she knew t...

  • Hot Girls

    Losing my virginity. Getting my driver's license. Taking my first shot of vodka. None of these even comes close to comparing with the feeling that ran through my frame as I read through my first MAXIM. To a blind man, it would just be paper without any Braille on it. But to me, it was paper with hot bitches and words on it. I could almost feel the two-dimensional sex radiating off it as I thumbed through the articles: "How to get Any Woman You Want" and "Three Girls in Bed at the Same Time". I q...

    What is war? Is it explicitly limited to an external conflict between two or more countries, or can it be a conflict that occurs within a person's emotions, thoughts, and beliefs? That question can be pondered by anyone for countless hours without any real sway to either choice, but there a few examples in literature that could prove the latter choice is the more adequate definition of what war is. Novels such as The Things They Carried, Caucasia, and Funny Boy are great examples of the war that...

    "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman" was written over 200 years ago. However, if it were not for some of the language clues I quite possibly could have been led to believe that this paper was written yesterday.

Corsets and pet...

    PE 17 Fellows, On a special occasion like this, I urge you all to lie on your back for a sec, free your minds, and think back to the first day you step in here. Your memories are definitely varied, your expectations might be totally diverse, but I firmly believe there are two things in mind we have in common. One is the impression on people and place; and another is the impression on the steady, freshly-permed look on "Mr. K" hair. Isn't it nice to know that in this ever-changing world there is ...
