    whoever it was that Randy sent up with you to keep an eye on me that I am more than capable of taking care of myself and that he should remember that, as well as the incident in Charlestown. Make sure you say that exactly, the incident in Charlestown.” The whore nodded in acknowledgment and then left the room and close the door behind her. “I take it then that you are Darcy.” Ben asked. “And that puts me at a significant disadvantage to you Mr.?” “Hollingsworth, Ben Hollingsworth. I came here to see you because indeed answers about...” he as cut off by her raising her hand to him. “I want to say that I am very saddened to hear about the fate of Fisk. He was a good man and I enjoyed his company.” Darcy said. “His company?” Ben quipped. “if that is an inquiry as to whether that company was social, professional or between the sheets of my bed I dare to say that it is none of your business, but then any man who would have the balls to come here and look for answers from me as to his death I would assume is a man who he held in very close regard so I will grant you the consideration of an answer. It was all but the third Mr. Hollingsworth; I do not allow the men that work for me in any way to ever remove their pants at the foot of my…

    “Your dad is dead!” I remember the statement so vividly. I remember the looks on everyone’s faces. I remember it all like it was yesterday. I was nine when my world spiraled out of control.

At first alcohol was his answer to the pain; but in the end it just left him hurting more than anything else. Things weren’t always miserable in our house. There were plenty of…

    and compliment my work, work ethic, and accomplishments once they hear where I am going to college and my plans when I get there. I do normally go along with the compliment and take credit for my successes, in part because compliments make me recoil, and explaining the extent to your influence would be too expository and frankly unnecessary in some situations. Your effect on my life goes beyond what I could ever expect, or even consciously like, and your influence I constantly feel at rare but…

    After reading this book I thought to myself that I have never really experienced anything as traumatic as Sittser, or really anything traumatic compared to his story and the stories of those he had shared. Then, after that thought I then remembered that toward the beginning of the book he explicitly stated that everyone’s pain is different and cannot be compared. In addition, through out the book he consistently spoke about the difference between a fracture and an amputation. He explained that a…

    One of the aspects I find strong is the organization of the essay and the smooth transition between the main ideas. The author has a very attractive start, which sets up the credibility of his argument that Flint is stereotyped. He began by stating some sentences from a philosopher’s speech on graduate school, which, also, addressed how students are not valued for being from Flint. O’Dea begins his essay, “She wanted to be gentle, but a philosopher does not hide the truth. ‘It’s tough to get out…

    jumped into the shower and got out 10 minutes later. 'What the hell do I wear? Are we going somewhere nice or casual? Should I text her and see? Fuck it, I 'll surprise her. ' Carmilla decided to wear her black skinny jeans with the tear on the kneecaps, her leather boots, and a black top that slightly showed off her stomach. She had the abs, so why not impress Laura?

    For as long as I can remember, there is a specific question that I have asked myself: Why am I here and where am I headed? The fact that I am unable to answer this question completely drains my energies. While I am sure that a number of individuals struggle with this question, I have found that I do not even understand the question itself, much less its answer.
