    I have always been a K9 lover. It never fails to amaze me how ordinary people trade in dogs for these hissing, stubborn, self-centered felines we call cats. Dogs embody characteristics that we wish all humans could possess: unconditional love, joy, unabashed love of life, and never being one to rush to judgment. Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don 't even know we have. Ryder is my good boy. Ryder is an Australian Shepherd, who has coloring the same as an old man’s. He is a smoky gray with midnight black and caramel brown specks. Ryder’s chest is majestic and fully white. His fur feels like a wool rug that you want to keep grabbing to feel the softness between your fingers. One eye is chocolaty brown, while one eye is half blue, the color of ice in the winter, and the other half brown, a very rare trait. His feet seem to have white socks on with brown polka dots. Ryder has no tail, so when he becomes excited his fluffy butt starts to shimmy and shake until he can’t contain it any longer, and his whole body starts to wiggle back and forth. At the words “Bed time,” his ears perk up like a rabbits, and he goes straight to the stairs, waiting for me to keep my promise on a sleepover every night. “That’s my good boy,” I respond with a smile plastered on my face as I follow him up the stairs. As I get ready for bed, he is constantly perched on top of my toes, gazing up at me expectantly with his unique eyes that I never get tired of…

    As characters arose from various situations, a glimpse into the upheld idea of wild thinking became overt. Mr. Wickham, for instance, posed the first series of uncultured acts that applied such conclusions of independent thought. His first such exploit was introduced later in the novel, yet provided a great deal of insight to his character. When Wickham seized the opportunity to, in unguarded moments, act irresponsibly under the Darcy family’s care, Fitzwilliam Darcy took note of this and knew…

    Women’s Lives Back in the 20’s it was normal for a woman to marry a wealthy man for his money.

In Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice, the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, is different from all the other women of this time. She believes that you should marry because you love someone, not because they will be able to give you the most expensive gifts. There are more women…

    It is quite gripping to view the oppressions that women faced in the early 1800s through the lens of a writer in accord with the push for feminism in literature. The story of Pride and Prejudice revolves around the Bennet family, a penniless group of women and their father, attempting to emerge into a predominantly wealthy society. The five Bennet daughters face innumerable challenges with men, the notion of marriage, and their lack of finances. Elizabeth Bennet defies the conventional idea of…

When most of the women dedicate their time and effort to be adequate suitors for men, she believes that falling in love before marriage is the more reasonable decision. For example, she stands out amongst every other woman when she walks many miles through…
