I had never gone without my phone for an extended period of time before this trip so I found my experience…

    “On n’est jamais content là ou l’on est.” These words from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novel Le Petit Prince relays in my head while I stare blankly out of the train’s frosted window. The world outside seems like an infinite hole of darkness, everything seems barren and monotonous. I crave to feel the vivacity of what the world had been.

However, Saint Exupéry's use of Archetypal theory, the hero's journey in specific, assists the reader throughout the story and eventually reveals the meaning of it. There are conflicting opinions on who exactly goes on this heroic journey. In my opinion, it's only the the little prince: the pilot on the other…

(Antoine de Saint Exupèry, page 9). He also rejected the third sheep saying that the sheep…
