  • Rod Serling's The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street

    The civil rights activist Maya Angelou once said, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” Often times, people listen to that song without further knowledge on what it may truly mean and fail to take the time to investigate the credibility of that bird. Along with this, us humans sometimes act as parrots, simply imitating any idiotic utterance that is conceived. In the speculative fiction book Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the episode “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” from Rod Serling’s television anthology The Twilight Zone, and the episode “Once Bitten” from the Nickelodeon series SpongeBob SquarePants, it is clearly demonstrated that the circulation of unverified ideas can bring forth great destruction. Rumors— they can spread like wildfire. Although some may be quite ear catching, they are capable of ruining relationships, diminishing one’s self-esteem, and causing chaos. They derive from acknowledgement of often false information. As such information is spread, it is not uncommon for it to become twisted and exaggerated. This in turn can change a genuine event or reliable thought to something absolutely preposterous. Sometimes it is simply the lack of research that brings us to such conclusions. In thoughts of the story Lord of the Flies, Golding takes the plot of R. M. Ballantyne’s The Coral Island and incorporates his experiences as a schoolteacher to transform a tale of British imperialism and adventure to an…

  • Free College Admissions Essays: Who Am I?

    Who Am I ? “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” Dr. Seuss once wrote this poem which was music to my ears growing up. It fascinated me to think that in this gigantic world filled with 7 billion people that I was the only Amanda A Laryea to ever walk its surface. Until about 8 years later on a random Facebook search, I found about four other individuals who share my name. However, our similar names do not connote similar personality…

  • Personal Narrative: My Limits Of High School

    I always thought I had limits. It all started when my sister and I used to draw human figures when we were both in elementary school. She drew pretty one while I somehow managed to turn mine into Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants. When I asked her how she drew them so perfectly, she merely shrugged and said that she became good when she entered third grade. From then, I waited for the third grade to come. In Korea, there is a tradition of eating a bowl of rice cake soup on New Year 's Day and…

  • Characteristics Of My Core Family

    At the age of 8, my core family consisted of my mom, dad, and little brother. My mom had recently changed her hair color to blonde, which I found odd at first. Mom was usually nice, but at that age I found her to be naggy. My dad was rapidly losing weight, thanks to a special surgery he got. I remember thinking my dad wouldn 't be the same after the surgery and it was a bad thing. Looking back I was clearly mistaken. My brother is very large for a little brother, mostly at the waist. We usually…

  • The Interpretive Dream In Culture Shock By Mr. Squidward

    Squidward, in “Naughty Nautical Neighbors”, ruins a fun game between Patrick and SpongeBob and manages to pit them against each other. Squidward’s meddling casts him as a somewhat devious and unlikable character. He is a fun crusher, and this characterization maintains throughout the episodes. Squidward’s rude attitude is a reflection of his own discontent. Squidward works as a cashier at the Krusty Krab, but the life he dreams of involves luxuries that he could not afford with his current…

  • Bikini Bottom Case Study

    The most appropriate form of leadership to approach this situation would be an authoritarian leadership. Firstly, the time available is limited. This is said as construction is to begin immediately which means that the Bikini Bottom community is under a direct threat, therefore, a qualified leader must be placed in a position of power so that he/she will have the ability to tell fellow citizens the things they must do. Secondly, the citizens of Bikini Bottom lack the skill, and knowledge of the…

  • Huck Finn Character Traits

    In the beginning of the story of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, one of the first things that the author, Mark Twain, addresses is Huck and his friend, Tom Sawyer, finding money hidden by robbers. I believe that Twain introduces the story with this topic to show that Huck is an adventurer and lives for the excitement and possibly the dangers of going on crazy journeys like finding stolen money. There are several different characters in this story that I believe influence Huck’s personality…
