I come from a divorced family. I have hateful parents, not towards me, but towards each other. I can’t stand it, the way they look at each other, the way they talk or act towards each other just irks me. I don’t blame my mother for ditching my father, who could? He was a dirty old, good-for-nothing, scumbag. Since he has left us, he hasn’t even given my mother and I a second thought. Since the divorce, I usually go to my father’s apartment on the weekend. The only reason I visit him is because my mother believes that I need a father figure in my life. My mother isn’t all that good of a mother anyway. I know she tries to be a responsible adult, but she acts like an immature little twit. She is constantly going to nightclubs and every night she has a different male companion in our house. I feel sorry for my mother’s delusional mind, her breath is constantly reeking of alcohol and her body encompassed with the horrible odor of tobacco.
Ever since they separated, my life has been difficult and when they got divorced, my life got even harder. I have been to five different schools within two years. Every school that I went to, someone would always find out that my family has issues and that I don’t have the best lifestyle. My so called friends would disown me and spread horrible rumors about me and my parents. They would tell everyone that my mother was a lady of pleasure and that was how she had lured my father. My “friends” also spread the word that I was just like my mother.…

To be successful the players have to be able to take a hit and withstand loss. In families, certain sports are regaled as tradition, the ability to play passed down through generations. A team is like a family, however since birth is not an option, to gain entry into the family worth has to be proved. Despite the entirely negative publicity of hazing in the media, many participants think of hazing as, “team tradition, a way to connect (Kowalski and Waldron, Crossing the Line 297).” A football…

One of the toughest decision that I’ve ever had to make is what majorI want to enter in college. When I became a senior in high school, questions concerning about college were always being asked to me. The first half of my senior year, I felt that everybody around me already knew what they are doing while for me, I was still undecided. I felt the pressure then I decided that my first objective is to research about different colleges such as; which college I should go to, cost of each college…
Television Between the Seventies and Now
From the beginning of the early seventies to the present day, television has changed dramatically. Our views on these subjects have changed and has altered the shows being shown.

Today’s television is all about exploiting everything that isn’t correct, getting the dirt on people out in the open. Topics like racism, women 's roles, family, and heterosexism have…

Comparing to how Thiebaud creates art, Joan Brown, a “second generation” artist of Bay Area figurative movement, integrates more personal elements into her self-portrait “Woman Wearing Mask”. In the work, Brown portrays herself as a woman who wears lingerie and red heels standing in a home setting with a purple cat mask. The redness of bra, underwear, and heels highlights the sexual attractiveness of the woman. With a comic effect, the purple cat mask satirizes women’s lack of identity and…
