its importance was never over emphasized. Though I haven't been in school long enough to emerge myself into the brutal competitive environment, I certainly did study the materials well to make my parents happy.
During the exam I was rather confident. The material wasn't that challenging so I quickly finished the exam. With nothing to do I started to look around: birds singing outside the window, people walking by the door, and the answers on the paper of my fellow classmate behind me. Though my action looked suspicious, I had no plan to cheat because even the concept of cheating was new to me. I was confident in my answers and had already finished the exam. I turned around simply to check

I have learned a lot about myself in the last twelve weeks. I discovered so much about my writing. I learned who I really am once I came out from behind the "Official Style" that I've clung to since junior high. I have to tell you, it was very difficult for me to let go. I felt lost and uncertain. But in the process I found myself, my style, and my voice. I learned to let myself come through in my writing. I have to admit, writing became a lot more fun and interesting.
When I looked back and read my first paper for this class, I laughed. I couldn't believe how trapped in the O.S. I was. I remember thinking as I wrote it that I was getting away from theme writing, but the only reasons I

After looking into the results of my personality tests, I found out many things that I did not know about myself, which would affect my future career choices greatly: I found out that I was even tempered, which would be a two sided blade for me in the future. I found out that I am very adaptable, which will aide me when tough changes occur; I found that I am confident enough to step up to any challenges yet I dislike pressures and deadlines; And last but not least, I am creative and logical, but never really inspiring and motivating.I am very even keeled normally, which means I rarely get too emotional. Here is an example of me being temperate: I was always a very good student in the

Every person have born, grow, do activities, married, have a child, become old and old following the time, and then die. It is a common life is everyone knows. We, however, have different ways to think of our life. Maya Angelo through her poem entitle “When I Think about Myself” has shared the voice of her people and result of the process of thinking or musing life. It is a very interesting poem because we need to read it twice or more to catch the real tone and story.
When the first you read the poem, you will not recognize the Maya’s mean and then be extremely curious to read it again carefully until you get the real story from the poem. The poem has contrasting word “laugh” with some

A common goal for many writers is to connect with their audience. In my previous essay for this class, my goal was to invite the reader into the magical world of Disney. Unfortunately, due to my lack of preparation, the invitation to the reader was lost. I also was unable to place myself into the viewpoint of the reader making me ineffective in connecting with the audience. For an essay to be effective in conveying a message to the reader it is imperative to always draft an organized outline and to put the author at the same point of view as the reader to avoid any confusion.
Organization is an ordered manner; where the author uses structure or a formulaic pattern to aid in the daunting

There are many subjects, experiences, and opinions that make us all different. For this essay I chose four ideas to write about that make me who I am; dreams, choices, identities, and stories. So here it goes…
Who am I? I am a person, just like everyone else. I have emotions, I breathe, and I live. Though there is something about each person that makes us unique. That something is our dreams; our dreams to do something great, our dreams to be something great, and our dreams to live a life that is great. Those dreams take us to new places. Also they make us meet new people. So what is my dream? Well I have many dreams.
A dream of mine is to become a concert pianist. Over the years of

The relationship between organizational culture and organizational structure is an important theme that is often overlooked. The two can be difficult to clearly distinguish from one another, and even more so to clearly define within an institution. Organizational structure works within an organizational culture, but it is not completely separate. The two are very much intertwined.
Organizational culture is more of a larger picture, a more general term that refers to a large umbrella of smaller topics and issues within an organization. The structure refers to the infrastructure, and the various methods and

The Mona Lisa was stolen from the louvre on August 21st 1911. According to Seymour Reit
“someone walked into the salon carré, lifted it off the wall and went out with it! The painting was
stolen Monday morning, but the interesting thing about it was that it wasn’t till Tuesday at noon
that they first realize it was gone.” Inspector Louis Lepine takes charge but for all his efforts he
was unable to get any hard leads. He started questioning the louvre administrators thinking that
they staged the theft in order to boost attendance. They searched every square inch of the

Walt Whitman, a Great American Poet
Walt Whitman was among the most influential poets in American. His works boldly emphasize the worth of the individual. When I first began to read some of his poems in the packet "Song of Myself," by Walt Whitman, these are the lines that intrigued me: "I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume, you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you" (Whitman 1011). After I read these first lines, I realized that Whitman seemed to be concerned not simply with himself, but with all of humanity.
Whitman began "Song of Myself," with these confident lines. In these few words he

Sometimes people ask me what enables you to work so hard in study, why you can enjoy learning knowledge, which is somehow tedious and boring for others. I have been thinking this for a long time. I found there is something inside myself, which is the most significant motivation for me to be educated. It is to build a strong, complete, and erudite myself.I always feel unsatisfied with myself.

Now clothed, I ran back down the stairs and into the front yard, where I had seen my mother while I was getting my breakfast earlier. Just as I was walking out the door, I noticed that Smoky was walking across the road, though down the road there was a large truck coming.

Most of those three awards I have received were all given to me on the basis of my leadership skills and capabilities I have shown over the years. Therefore, from the experiences I have had, I am confident to introduce myself as a leader.

Sometimes, I just want to let everything go, be lazy and burst out screaming. I was bullied during sixth grade; the school I went to have a lot of Mexicans and only five or six Asians. They make fun of my name and my race; they believe were more superior than I am. I let them bullied me because I wanted to be accepted badly; a lonely girl without any friends. Luckily, I got away but those bully remarks and comments create more insecurities about myself. I do not know what is my real smile and my fake smile anymore because I hide my pain with a smile.

I have set four main priorities in my life: glorifying God, my family, education, and friends. I am constantly thinking about my actions and how can I glorify God through them. I have gradually established a feeling of communion with the members in my church; I attend to church and a Bible study which has helped me to know more of God. I enjoy doing activities with my church such as helping people with very low resources. I always carry a spirit of helping other. It could be just by giving them food, clothe and other basic needs or

verse is something like a declaration of arrogance because if Whitman, what says about itself does not fit to everyone, so does not serve at all. The poet will be returning to this idea many times, and insisting that the origin and perspective of his singing is never single but multiple. Moreover, it is clear from an important significance that in general the poetry of Walt Whitman, not only will fit beautiful, laudable, be worthy of our respect, but also be corrupt, secret and even miserable.
Whitman thinks that poetry should cover everything. For this reason, singing to myself has no distinction of gender, creed, age, wisdom or customs. In other words; Whitman singing is universal, not only

I am learning that a relationship is only good when there is communication, not only with the other person, but with myself as well. Mr. Powell stated, "If there is no communication in a relationship, we are in our own prison of loneliness because we expose nothing of ourselves" (p.48). He stated that we seek shelter in gossip as a conversation. I do not talk about others, nor do I judge others by their action. I do not tell others about my feelings or myself.

Even within the first movement piece, I created a small area and stayed within it. After I cut my hair, however, I began to make more use of the space. I especially focused on the space to my left at this point, because at the beginning I had essentially been pulled to the right by my hair. I allowed myself to use more space until I reached the closing dance, at which point I made use of a far greater space.

After this, its forehead is marked with three yellow spots of turmeric (kunyit) and finally the corpse is moved to the gallery (ruai) where it is placed inside an enclosure of woven blankets measuring nine feet on each side. Both doors of the 'rumah panjang' must be docked with two rods. They believe that, if this is not done, the ghost of the deceased will bring the spirit of the deceased along with him.

Walt Whitman's Song of Myself
This paper deals with Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" in relation to Julia Kristeva's theories of abjection--my paper does not point to abjection in the text, but rather the significance of the abscence of abjection. This abscence, looming and revolting, arises from Whitman's attemt to refigure a conception of sublimity which delimits the material which can trigger the sublime moment. Whitman's democracy of the sublime is inclusive of those figures on the American landscape, their lives and voices, which are functionalized into his world. This paper employs the theories of George Lukacs and Julia Kristeva allow the unearthing of the archeological layers of

The summer between eighth grade and freshman year brought about a lot of change for me, the biggest being my family moving from Fort Irwin to Edwards AFB. From the day we got here all I wanted to do was leave, and being new here, I had no friends; I was still unable to let go of my old home. My inability to cope with the change of moving, combined with the fact that I had no one to talk to, caused me to fall into depression. This depression caused my self-esteem, which was very high while living at Ft. Irwin, to plummet, this, in turn, causing me to be anti-social. The only escape I had from this downward spiraling path was

Usually, these same people go about their business with no more than a passing glance towards their fellow man.

They rejoice in the vastness of the electric crowd and become one with it.

"I am the poet of the woman the same as the man," Whitman exclaims, in "Song of Myself" (419). The exultant, rolling lines of Whitman's poetry contain abundant references to both the sacredness of women and the limitlessness of their power. At the heart of his representation of women lay his desire to build a new American identity anchored on democratic and egalitarian principles. Whitman depicts women, particularly in their maternal role, as the cornerstones to the realization of his utopian social vision for America, but what is more evident than this powerful glorification of the maternal figure is his revolutionary portrayal of women as highly individualized, self-contained figures.

In his first anthology of poems entitled “Song of Myself”, Walt Whitman reveals some of his views on democracy through the use of symbolism and free verse poetry. His use of symbolism and free verse poetry creates indeterminacy, giving the reader hints rather than answers about the nature of the poem. In the sixth part of “Song of Myself”, a child asks the narrator of the poem, “What is the grass?” (Whitman). Instead of simply giving an answer, the narrator cannot make up his mind, and stumbles on how to explain the grass to the child. Through the use of specific symbolisms, Whitman, as the narrator, explicates his views while remaining under the façade of explaining grass to the child

Walt Whitman was a trailblazer, an independent individual. He was unafraid of backlash,
living for shock value whilst challenging society. In his poem “Song of Myself”, Whitman opened the blind eye (squeezed shut quite forcefully) of the heteronormative society to homosexuality in his less then accepting time period.
“Song of Myself” was revolutionary for his era. Birthed in an age where America was not yet leading in any form of art, but still feeding off of its old monarchic parent country. “Song of myself” was solely American, unknown and original, and considered to be our countries first epic poem. ‘Revolutionary’ is not a term used lightly, but describes the

While reading through the poem Song of Myself by Walt Whitman, what comes to your mind? His deep love for nature? The use of symbolism throughout the poem? Whitman’s questionable homoeroticism that seeps its way throughout the lines? What came to the forefront of mind when reading this poem by Whitman was his deliberately obvious theme of individuality while also maintaining a universal identity. I also think that Whitman throws in a common underlying theme of transcendentalism throughout his poem. At various times throughout Song of Myself, he really seems to show that each individual person has a sort of knowledge about themselves that

Visualizing Eternity in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself
Whitman's poem "Song of Myself #44" stands as a confession and testaments of not only who he is and what he is, but also as who we are, we being people in general. The poem is not about a self-idolizing author claiming to be the greatest being of all time. Instead it paints a picture for all mankind alike to relate to. It puts a mirror in front of the world and presents an angle of an image that, though familiar, we have never seen or realized before.
In the very beginning of the poem, Whitman addresses the world upon a pedestal, asking them to stand and explore with him the unknown. And what is unknown is eternity

There are many "popular" topics used frequently by authors. Love, religion, and war are some favorites. Two other such topics we typically read about are nature and death. The two can be discussed separately or they can be related to each other. Walt Whitman, a lover of nature, tackled these subjects in "Song of Myself" from Leaves of Grass. Another author who does the same is William Cullen Bryant. Though two very different writers with different styles, they share some of the same ideas.
"Song of Myself" is a celebration of life and God. Whitman loved everything imaginable about nature. He loved people, animals, and himself. Throughout this extensive poem, Whitman

The Meaning of Life in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself
Our culture seems to be fascinated by the unknown and specifically that which pertains to things of an eternal nature such as Heaven, angels, God and the meaning of forever. These things cause us to think about what we can't see and even allow us to engage ourselves in questioning the meaning behind our existence and what our purpose is here on earth. Some of these may be humorous and take on the realities of human nature while others stir something inside ourselves that cause us to take a deeper look at life.
In Whitman's "Song of Myself" #44, he appears to be doing just that-- looking at life from a different perspective

When being asked to find a picture that describes myself as an individual, I found one picture that stood out from the rest; a picture of a "hippy" sitting on the grass with his friends. Although I am not a hippy, and I don't look like one, I feel that hippies represent freedom, and freedom is what I have always strived for.When most people think of freedom, they think of the past and slavery.
