    I eventually found where I was supposed to go and made sure I sat way in the back by myself. The service started off with a band playing a few songs which I found to be weird. Also the music was terrible. The band tried to make the music sound like Christian rock. I watched a few people stretch their arm out and dance to the music. I felt uncomfortable because I didn’t know the lyrics and I just stood still with my arms crossed. Once the horrible band finished playing the preacher came out onto the stage. I was expecting him to be wearing a robe but he was dressed in normal attire. He talked for about an hour about family struggles. I mostly tuned him out and kept checking my watch to see if time would go by faster. Most of the things he was saying made no sense anyways because they were straight from the bible.I opened my bible in an effort…

    We came in very well-dressed for service, but when we walked in people are wearing sweatpants and are so relaxed. People kept coming up to us and saying hi and asking their names. The pastor’s secretary came to greet us and asked if we had met the pastor already, we got to speak to him for a couple moments. He seemed very open to allowing anybody to join the church there 're no criteria which I found odd. He said we could email him at anything or follow them on Twitter or Facebook. They told us…

    Being in a church setting, I did not want to break many norms, or be overly intolerable because I knew that many people would be very upset. From breaking the norms (sitting down while everyone else stood up to sing, texting, ect.) the people got upset, but not upset enough to leave the service. I think if I would have continuously been disruptive and annoying, people would have left, or told me to leave. I thought that it was very interesting that while they sing, they stand up, while at my…

    Did you ever have a friend growing up that made it his or her ultimate goal to gross you out? Wether it be by cracking their fingers, telling jokes, or tortures through smelly socks, it is guaranteed that you did not appreciate when your your friend teased you about such matters. Most people as they get older they mature and grow out of this kind of humor. What if I told you there was a man that never grew up.

    Pietro della Vigna, a character from Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is the focal point of this paper. Pietro’s introduced in the Inferno Canto XIII, corresponding to the Second Ring of the Seventh Circle of Hell. Of all characters that I have come across in the Divine Comedy, Pietro to me is extremely significant as he does not claim that he was wrongfully punished in hell but worries of being recognized as an unfaithful person in the world. The concept of this paper surrounds the idea of Pietro and…
