    days after Christmas. I lost her. She was ninety-eight years old. When she passed away a part of me broke; I cried for days. I wouldn’t eat; I couldn’t sleep. My family thought I was having a nervous breakdown and honestly I was. I had lost the person I turned to when I felt I had nowhere else to go, when I was scared and lost and confused. Losing her made me more scared, lost, and confused than I had ever been before. She was my closest friend and the one person I knew would be there for me no matter what. I came to Utah State University to feel closer to her; I did not know what else to do. I knew this is where she found herself and I latched on to that fact. I chose to live in Valley View Towers because they have the shortest walk to Logan Cemetery where my great-grandmother is buried. I go to her grave once a week and talk to her just like I did when I called. I tell her about everything that is going on. Sometimes it is trivial: “I got a good grade on this exam,” other times it is far more substantial: “I don’t know if I can handle this week.” She was my rock and without her I am on the sand hoping the tide doesn’t come in and wash me out to sea. That is how I felt when I finished high school, even when I started college; it is only now beginning to change. During the fall of this year I rushed to join a sorority; my great-grandmother was a Kappa Delta here at Utah State University in the forty’s. All the tales of what her and her sorority sisters used to get up to…

    she shook her head. But that was how she was, that was who she was- what had Logan said? The bravest person he knew… Blinking her eyes closed for only seconds, Veronica took comfort in those words for only a few moments. She definitely feel brave- she hadn’t felt brave when Aaron Echolls had a gun on her, and she didn’t feel brave hiding from her dad. The bravest person in her life was her dad, and with a weak sob Veronica opened her eyes again, to see Logan back from the bathroom, leaning…

    Case conceptualization, (the following presents a hypothetical case conceptualization) Jack is a truck driver that has recently gotten out of the hospital. He was in the hospital because he found himself the victim of a mugging while he was parked at a truck stop, somewhere north of the United States border. The assailant did not come out of nowhere, rather he walked up to Jack and seemed friendly enough. The aggressor began by asking for directions. Nothing really seemed out of the ordinary for…

    In the poem, Out of the Sea, Early by May Swenson, the subject is the love of nature. The speaker tells a story about how beautiful the sun rise is by comparing it to things that have never been imagined before. The speaker however, is a more complex character with different outlooks on the ocean. The way the speaker delivers his tone is through a calm voice, representing the ocean that he or she is conversing about. Based upon the word choice, we can infer that the speaker is a sailor that…

    Racism In The Logans

    Hate. Violence. Racism. This is what the Logans had to undergo in Mississippi in 1933. But why were people like this? Surely you wouldn’t carry out this action! Would you? The truth is, you probably would. The Logan family was African-American, which meant they were a prime target for racism. The Logans did have 400 acres of land, but Harlan Granger, a racist white, tried his best to take it away from them. The land is all they have to keep the Logans viable, but they could just dispose of it…

    “Set in 2029, “Logan” is the closest thing to a valedictory the Marvel universe has yet concocted.”1 ”Unlike any of its predecessors, Logan feels organic and, despite being loaded with plenty of references and Easter eggs, manages to work well as a standalone film.” 2“James Mangold’s Logan is a grizzly and exceptionally dark character-driven tale; one that is unlike any other comic book-inspired story you would have come across before.”² “When the newer superhero films go for sincerity, they…

    Logan Dystopian

    • 935 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Logan is a 2017 Marvel comic-adaptation that strips away the conventional superhero film characteristics, the twists and turns of the X-Men franchise, to revolve around one of Marvel’s most famous superhero, Wolverine. Flawlessly merging both Marvel and Western mythology, director James Mangold has created an emotionally and symbolically significant element, one that focuses on Hugh Jackman’s adaptation of a declining and shriveled hero. The dystopian film, set in 2029, is incredibly desolate,…

    Matthew was something that Logan felt he would never understand. They came from two very different worlds, and everything that Matthew did fascinated Logan. How someone could sit and pour over book for hours, or willingly get in a pool and swim multiple laps, Logan would never understand. He had no idea really what (or why) Matthew did for fun. Logan didn’t know that such pleasures that Matthew enjoyed included sleeping. Logan looked down at the beautiful boy that was in his lap, using his…
