This year, the junior class, along with the senior class, was assigned the famous job shadow project. I was extremely excited knowing that I would get the chance to experience my dream career, first-hand. Before my classmates and I wrote our job shadow request letters, Mr. Shoji made us search different careers that we might be interested in. For this part of the assignment, I chose three totally different careers: General Dentist, Obstetric Sonographer, and Environmental Lawyer.

To help explain this, H.L.A. Hart provides the example…

    and even the author, are unclear. The protagonist, Daniel Quinn, embarks on solving a mystery for his unknown employer, but as the plot unfolds, he becomes increasingly unsure of his own identity. Thus, while Auster initially presents his novel as a work of mystery focused on the secrets of the Stillman family, his novel ultimately tackles the uncertainty of identity.

He wants it this way because he wants the world to know that people are basically more chaotic than orderly, which makes people, or readers, wonder if this is actually true. Finally, the one…
