    Imagine the softest stuffed animal you have, and then imagine it being hand-sewn my the sweetest woman in your life, your grandmother. Back when I was 3 years old, my grandmother, Eleanor, sewed me a snowman and gave it to me as a Christmas present. When I opened the present, I immediately saw the pure white fabric, a bright orange nose, and two black buttons as eyes. Quickly after unwrapping the present, the snowman and I, whom I named Eugene, quickly became best friends. When I first received him, Eugene was a pure white snowman with a carrot nose, and two black buttons as eyes. I took him everywhere with me, the beach, the doctors, and even sometimes school. However, over the years, Eugene lost his pure white look, now only has one eye, no longer has a nose, and his stuffing is falling out, but he is still the most prized possession I owned. If anything ever happened to him I would be devastated. Eugene was able to help me out a lot over the years. When I first entered middle school, all of the friends I had since kindergarten thought that it would be fun to no longer talk to me or want to have anything to do with me for that matter. I would walk by myself from class to class, and eat lunch by myself day after day. Every afternoon when I got home from school, I would just go straight to my room and sleep with Eugene. On the weekends I would see all of my former friends hanging out and having a good time, and for comfort, I would grab Eugene and cuddle with him. Nothing…

Emrich sets her stance by stating that she’s “never understood it,” and that she’s “perfectly happy to flaunt what she’s got – to a point.” Emrich…

    According to the article, “Treatment of Methamphetamine Cravings With Bupropion: A Case Report,” by Dr. Timothy Berigan and Michael Russell.

    As a whole, is going to a summer sleep-away camp as a child a positive experience or a negative one?

For example, when a child goes away from their family for a sleep-away camp they have to separate from their families breaking all ties for a few days or weeks. This is a good thing because of the fact that this child when they grow up is going to have to leave their family…

    Fitting Genre to Audience and Purpose (Rough Draft) When writing, it is important to know to whom you are talking to and what’s the purpose of your composition. Throughout this course, my classmates and I have worked on many assignments where the audience varied. Sometimes our assignments were for our professor and other times for the rest of the class. The way us as students communicate with each other is different than how we talk to our professors. A good example that demonstrates this is how…

    did not seem to believe in an eternal afterlife, as evidenced by the speaker’s claim that “no man hath care for a corpse” (Havamal 71). To them, death was entirely absolute and all-encompassing; all men, regardless of kin or ability, would eventually die and remain so for eternity. In a sense, the Vikings believed that death was the distinct, shared destiny of all individuals. However, Havamal urges readers not to contemplate this fate, lest they fall prey to depression or anxiety: “who looks…

    The genre I have chosen is Rock. Common instruments used in Rock music are mostly amplified instruments, like the electric guitar and electric bass. Rock also uses strong baseline and driving rhythms. Rock music, which was developed from rock ‘n’ roll, originated from the late 1940’s in the United States. It was influenced by country and blues music that started making a new sound using electric guitars and a balanced drum beat, which was a faster beat and rhythm instead of a slow one. Rock…
