    Please note that while the cover is simplistic, it is intended to be as such. The novel contains a multitude of vintage photographs which are both creepy and shrouded in mystery. This was the theme I tried to capture with this CD cover. Analysis: The first reason as to why I chose this song is that the music/beat is uplifting and almost innocent, in a sense. This is reflective of the fact that all of the main characters in the novel Hollow City by Ransom Riggs are children or teenagers, an often carefree and happy demographic. Secondly, I chose the song Waiting on the World to Change because throughout the entirety of the novel (the second installment of a three part series by Riggs), the characters’ relatively happy ways of life are threatened by evil and humanoid being called wights. The main cast of children in this novel all posses special abilities, like superpowers, and for this reason are considered beings named peculiars or syndrigasti. These peculiar children live in time loops (for decades if they so choose) made and monitored by peculiar women. Called ymbrynes, these women can transform into birds in addition to manipulating time. In a series of events described in the novel previous to this one, wights have been capturing ymbrynes, essentially destroying loops and causing peculiar children in them to flee. This is the case with the main characters of the novel. In my opinion, the aforementioned song speaks to the fact that these children are seeing their…

    Here are two magnificent pieces of literature. One is a poem which is called “If-” and the other a memoir, that is called “Kipling and I.” The poem “If-” talks about how you learn to be a better person through life lessons, morals, and endurance. In the memoir “Kipling and I” reflects back on the poem “If-” because this assists or inspires the person to keep going. It is like “Kipling and I” has “If-” inside.

    At some point in the numerous journeys we embark on, we hit an obstacle and we feel all hope is lost. Sometimes we give up before any progress, and sometimes we give up right before we make it to the finish line, despite putting in so much effort to achieve it. Through Invictus by William Ernest Henley and If by Rudyard Kipling, it is shown that “if you can keep your head”, “yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it”. Both texts insinuate that success comes from commitment and a true sense…

    I realized that in order for me to start the next chapter in my life I have to quit “re-reading” the last one. Which is why I deleted all my social media accounts. I noticed myself putting more time into face book or Instagram then I did my relationship with you and my family and also my school work. I also knew that if I kept those accounts I would sooner or later ruin my relationship with you because it is way too much drama and also because the first sign of an unhealthy relationship is a…

    properties are fixed, then intentional properties are fixed. (Davidson 2001/1970) However, supervenience cannot provide substantial information about the relation of intentional and physical properties, since it is a general and topic-neutral relation. Moreover, ECM encounters an ontological problem raised by Kim (1998). By endorsing the idea of supervenience, Davidson consents to a layered or hierarchical model of world, holding that different kinds of explanations (physical, neural and…
