Life in Day

The film, “Life in a Day” showed me that people that live all around the world can be similar and completely different at the same time. This movie was very interesting and eye opening to me. I learned that even though people around the world could have different cultures and beliefs we could all be the same in many other ways. The part of the movie that interested me the most was when different people were asked what was in their pockets. This interested me because even though the people that were asked had little to no similarities all of their answers were generally the same. Some people stated there was money and others stated that there was nothing. The people that had nothing thought that it wasn’t important to have anything because family was all they needed. I think that family was an important factor in the movie as well.
Few of the people in the movie stated that they wanted family and a lot of the answers they got were family related. I think that that is fundamental because no matter where you go in the world people always stated that family was important; making everyone in the world more relatable to each other despite their cultural differences. The part of the movie that shocked me the most was when we saw the way they butchered the cow. It was shocking because I’ve never thought of where our food came from or how it got in the packaging. There was not a part in the movie that I particularly disliked, the movie was a real eye opener and it let me get a different view of the world. My favorite part of the movie, however, is when people are asked what they fear the most. I think that this part of the movie was the best because it really showed how similar people could be even when they have absolutely nothing else in common. Everyone who answered this…...

A&P by John Upike

...She had on a kind of dirty-pink - - beige maybe, I don't know -- bathing suit with a little nubble all over it and, what got me, the straps were down. They were off her shoulders looped loose around the cool tops of her arms, and I guess as a result the suit had slipped a little on her, so all around the top of the cloth there was this shining rim. If it hadn't been there you wouldn't have known there could have been anything whiter than those shoulders. With the straps pushed off, there was nothing between the top of the suit and the top of her head except just her, this clean bare plane of the top of her chest down from the shoulder bones like a dented sheet of metal tilted in the light. I mean, it was more than pretty. She had sort of oaky hair that the sun and salt had bleached, done up in a bun that was unravelling, and a kind of prim face. Walking into the A & P with your straps down, I suppose it's the only kind of face youcan have. She held her head so high her neck, coming up out o fthose white shoulders, looked kind of stretched, but I didn't mind. The longer her neck was, the more of her there was. She must have felt in the corner of her eye me and over my shoulder Stokesie in the second slot watching, but she didn't tip. Not this queen. She kept her eyes moving across the racks, and stopped, and turned so slow it made my stomach rub the inside of my apron, and buzzed to the other two, who kind of huddled against her for relief, and they all three of them went up......

Jersey Shore Critical Analysis

...he refers people as sheep’s and followers. The author incorporates the use of animals and clothing as symbols in ways to characterize the town and people throughout the course of the story. Sheep’s are described as close group animals that do the same routines and don’t have a mind of their own. This symbolizes how the people in this town are not risk-takers and the girls walking half naked into the store was out of the ordinary. Sammy’s point of view is that everyone is always in conformity in the community standard, but changes when he witnesses the girls rebelling against the status quo. His fascination with the girls allows readers to get a better a better view of his insight to the characters. For example, he states, "She had sort of oaky hair that the sun and salt had bleached, done up in a bun that was unraveling, and a kind of prim face". Describing Queenie in details revealed Sammy’s obsession he had toward her and calls a Queen as opposed to a sheep follower. Sammy is also overwhelmed by power. This can be seen by him stating, “She didn't look around, not this queen, she just walked straight on slowly, on these long white prima donna legs”. He is more sympathetic towards her and romantic in a way. Sammy is seduced by Queenie self-confidence in particular, when she defends her choice of clothing to the appalled store manager, Lengel. Lengel is upset that his authority is being challenged and especially by the three young girls. The girls are very aware of the power......

Who Moved the Cheese

...zones. How does this reflect on those workers losing their pension funds? Employees now need to ensure they embrace change as it is more frequent in the current work force If employees had anticipated these changes it is possible that they would not have lost their pension funds or be able to recover quicker. As the book was trying to point out, if you stick to what you know or depend on others, the chances are that the things you depend on are not reliable or unable to provide or even help you in a timely manner. It would be better to up-skill your present skills and learn to rely more on your-self and take the initiative to step out of your comfort zone, and never be afraid to learn more. There are times you will need to realize it is oaky to fail and move forward and learn from the experience and embrace change as it is fact in our lives today. 3. One of the book’s most powerful questions are “what would you do if you were not afraid”. As you look to your future and grasp the attitudes Spencer Johnson suggests, share your answer to that question with your classmates. Afraid of change or like the mice, who went out and got what they wanted, cheese? If I were to look to the future and not be afraid, I would start my own business, unfortunately it would not be wise for me based on the economy and the timing. I have strong concerns that the economy will get worse and if I start a new business it won’t succeed. I am not in a position to blow money and pray that......

...it for a good reason and I’m planning on going to visit someday. How was your life like in Mexico before coming to the United States? I worked in a candy store and then in the afternoon I worked in the farms to support my family of 9. What did you do after you got to the United States? I got to my cousins house and she took me to go see around and showed me where all the stores were and she showed me what meant what because I didn’t know English. Did you have a job? No but I was working so hard on finding one and a few weeks later I started to work with my oldest sister that has been in the united states for 3 years. We were both working in an airline company. How was your life so far in the United States? It was oaky, but I missed Mexico because the life over there was easier and it wasn’t hard to get a job. Was it hard to understand people and sardine things when you first got here? Yes I had to finish my high school years to understand more English.

Self Centered Generation

...than the ones from the 1990’s and 1980’s. Professor Twenge also acknowledges that as part of normal developments, 18- and 19-years-olds are generally self-focused and narcissistic, but she says they are a lot more narcissistic now than they were in previous generations. They also found that men scored a little higher in narcissism than women, but women are catching up fast. These tests and studies open the door to so much more. Twenge then realizes the need of plastic surgeries have increased. It is all about looking the best and looking like a Barbie doll. People are taking vanity to the extreme by trying to make themselves look perfect. This is greatly affecting the children of today’s generations because it is teaching them that it is oaky to only worry about yourself and the way you look. That ‘as long as you look good and get a lot of likes, you will be fine’. But there is much more to it. The same studies that I have mentioned also show that the relationships these people have do not last long and/or are very meaningless. Many relationships for these kids are over Instagram or twitter or other forms of communication media where they don’t even know the person. “Somebody high in self-esteem values individual achievement, but they also value their relationships and caring for others. ‘Narcissists are missing that piece about valuing, caring and their relationships, so they tend to lack empathy, they have poor relationship skills. That's one of the biggest differences,......
