    Growing up, I had many problems with my left leg and foot. Looking back, going back and forth to the hospital and doctor’s appointments really made me into much stronger person that I am today. As a result, it made me want to become a nurse so I can help other people out the same way those doctors and nurses did when I needed help. I had multiple surgeries done on my leg which prevented me from doing a lot of activities growing up. At the same time, I feel like I let my leg problems get in the…

    “And while I had to lack after the savage who was a fireman…to look at him was edifying as seeing a dog in a parody of breeches and a feather hat, walking on his hind legs…he was useful and had been instructed (www.SparkNotes.com).” As a result, it seemed that no matter how educated the Natives became, they were still seen as being a lesser people to the whites. From racism, the idea of civilization vs. uncivilized life came about. Conrad used the “light and dark” difference regarding this.…

    If one might find some of them less appealing, they can be skipped by the reader since there are still enough left. Even one who is not particularly interested in food could find the book useful, since it deals in general with cultural meaning, symbolism, political economy, gender, and consumption. I liked especially the papers that dealt with the roots of thinness, since it is such a prevailing paradigm today in many parts of the world, and so heavily promoted by the media as an almost…

    The troll bit her lip, trying not to scream as Jade's stocking covered foot slammed into her testicles, pinning them against her own pelvis. The thin panties Vriska wore doing absolutely nothing to stop the pain. "Now what do you say Vriska?" Jade asked, her voice just as kind and sweet as ever. How she could keep that tone while throughly dominating her was something Vriska could never understand. "Th-thank you Jade," Vriska squeaked, legs wobbled slightly. This was the seventh kick in a row…

    down the hurdle, hopped over the obstacle, and regained my velocity. Putting what had happened aside, I came back to face the hurdles. This time I did not need to convince myself. I gripped my hands tightly into fists and thought of nothing but finishing the race. As the second hurdle came I took a deep breath and simply leaped. Though I could very well hit the hurdle and fall flat on the ground, I thought about none of that. Flushing the thoughts of embarrassment and humiliation from my mind,…

    wondrous creatures that might be hiding around every bush or low hanging branch. Oblivious to my actual surroundings, I was suddenly ripped from my daydream as my right leg plunged deep beneath the snow. I had forgotten about the water trench that ran from a small hill into a grated hole in the ground. My left leg remained on top of the snow, so it was crumpled together and squeezed against my chest and chin. I was amused at how stupid I was to have forgotten the trench and at what a comical…
