What Dreams May Come The different colors worn and portrayed in What Dreams May Come all have specific meanings. Red, blue, violet, and black make up the different moods and personalities of each character. The patterns that each color portrays, makes each character their unique and own self. The color of Annie, one of the main characters is red. Throughout the film, Annie was changing. She was going through many intense situations, which made her change. When Annie is herself, acting who she really is, her happy self, she is wearing red. For example, the first scene in the film was Annie on a boat, looking happy and content. She was in white, but the sail was red. When she is lying with Chris in the field she is wearing red. The viewer can feel their love and that they are happy. But once Annie’s children died, she never wears red again. On the other hand, the color blue represents Annie’s husband, Chris. Chris was happy a lot of the time. The viewer can recognize his content vibes while he was with Annie or the children. When Chris and Annie were lying in the field together, while Annie was wearing red, Chris was wearing blue. They were happy, in love, and peaceful. The purposes of them wearing “their colors” were to back up the fact that this is who they truly are. The third color that is portrayed in the film is violet. This color represents people, situations and other things that are going through transitions. Take the tragic moment of Annie killing herself. This is her transition from her current life of sadness to a new world, hell. Another example if a transition is when Annie painted the purple tree which Chris first got to heaven. Violet was a major part of the film making each transition noticeable. The last color is black. For obvious reasons this color represents a problem, or when something bad happens. For…...

What Is the American Dream?

...What is the American Dream, and who are the people most likely to pursue its often elusive fulfillment? Indeed, the American Dream has come to represent the attainment of a combination of goals that are specific to each individual.

The American Dream was and always will be something that makes America great. It allows those with aspirations to make them come true.

What Comes to Mind

...When Two Become One (What Comes to Mind Reflection Paper) One science wizard says, “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.” A brilliant saying that reflects to the reality of our thinking. Just like combining two indifferent things into one comprehension. Who would have thought that there could be psychology in marketing at the first base? Of course we could not immediately observe It but through excavating it we would appreciate its importance. It was the first day of class this year that help us prevent from mind-bugging school work. A seminar entitled “What Comes to Mind?” gave us an opportunity to be relieve somehow and made our mind refreshed. I could say that this is not new for my perplexed mind given the fact that I am business course student. That’s why I never got excited. I’m a bit well-educated from these because I have a Marketing subject plus I already took up a Psychology subject. These two may come from different category which is the first is business and the latter is science. Psychologists invest their time studying mental functions and behaviors. Marketers invest their time communicating product and service values to customers. Beneath these broad strokes of practice are patterns, intertwined and working together for greater impact. Marketers can learn a great deal from psychologists, especially when looking at buying habits, brand emotions and the psychological influence what we see, hear and......

Why We Dream and What Our Dreams Mean

...Why We Dream and What Our Dreams Mean There are several theories to why people have the dreams they have. Yet there are no definitive answers to this age old question. One theory is the Evolutionary Theory which states that we dream to practice responses to threatening situations. Cognitive scientist has shown that our amygdala (the fight-or-flight piece of the brain) fires more than normal when we're in REM sleep the time in sleep when we dream. So even though your body is not moving it is practicing the fight or flight response. Another theory is to organize the brain. Everyday our minds are filled with new information both consciously and unconsciously. This theory suggests dreaming is a way to file away key information and discard meaningless data. It helps keep our brains organized and optimizes our learning. There is yet another theory that suggests dreams help to solve problems or cope with trauma. Based on the intensity of our emotions, we will generate dreams to cope with certain situations. Although, scientists generally seem to agree that dreaming is a form of thinking during sleep. I decided to keep track of my dreams over a three week time period so that I could analyze how many times I had a certain dream and to find out what the dreams meant. It is very interesting to see what is going on in my subconscious. I went to dreammoods.com to find out what the meanings were. In one dream I was pregnant with not a human child but puppies.

Climb Till Your Dream Comes True

...Climb ‘Til Your Dream Comes True As students many of us are here in pursuit of our dreams in life but some of us may give up when the going gets tough and the challenges seem impossible, but faith in our hearts is the fuel that will propel us through the challenges we face in life prior to realizing our dreams. According to Helen Steiner Rice a well-known poet, faith is a force that is greater than knowledge or power or skill and many defeats turn to triumph if you trust in God’s wisdom and will. On the journey towards our dreams the road may be tough and many of us will be faced with many tasks more than we can bear; challenges like working to support ourselves, raising children in addition to the course workloads may be very daunting and impossible and many may give up their dreams. But always remember the hills ahead are never as steep as they seem and with faith in our hearts and believe in ourselves we can climb until we reach our dreams. I remembered when my husband was preparing for pharmacy school he was a fulltime student, working for 12 hours a day, taking care of the household expenses, and he barely got 5 hours of sleep a day but despite the challenges he never gave up his dream of becoming a pharmacist. He was relentless in his pursuit of his dream through believe in himself and faith in God; and now he is a practicing pharmacist. As many of us are pursuing our dreams we may be confronted with many challenges, which may abort our dreams if we give up,......

Social Networking Making a Dream Come True

...online specifically to become this false self of themselves. Everyone has been given that freedom of speech to become that person he or she imagines to be, but some people take advantage of that. When it comes to online they begin to lose their morals and ethics. We are at fault of this when we put too much out there that could be used against us such as in job interviews, college applications, and new relationships we encounter every day. As shown by Yoshino, he says "covering has enjoyed such a robust and stubborn life because it is a form of assimilation" (Yoshino 552). A 14 year old girl called "Kiki Kannibal" exposes herself to the social networking to feel part of the world and gives it away when she faces all the publicity of her online life turns to an "endless, soul sucking performance." (Erdely). This comes to show that there is a online world that changes us to create this fantasy world we so desire from what we lack in the real world. Although it can be argued that social media allows people to honestly express themselves, most people use social media to perpetuate a false self; in doing so, they strive to be one with themselves and society by the advancing technology that it offers, compromise their beliefs and values for attention, and have difficulty discerning what they post online along with what's really being told. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and many other social networking websites are just a few means through which people create that false self.......

Dreams Do Come True

...Dreams Do Come True  Dreams do come true. Everyone in their life has a dream or two or three. Finding the way to achieve your dreams, goals, and aspirations is an epic journey on its own. It takes discipline, determination, and self -exploration. This is the tale of the journey I am still currently on.  As a child I always wanted to be in the spotlight. I was always the ham in family pictures, the one who had to excel past my brother, and be in the know of everything. When I was about twelve years old, I realized that entertaining people was what I was all about. Since I wasn’t any good at telling the jokes around the campfire or singing acappella, I thought about trying my dance skills. I liked dancing and I have always enjoyed music videos like Janet Jackson’s “Miss you much”, so I thought why not? What did I have to lose? With the support of my parents, particularly my mom, I went for the gusto.  Like any first experience we remember all the details of the event. I remember my first dance class at J in Jazz Dance Studio. I was under the instruction of Julie Pederson who was one of the young faces in my little town of Sierra Vista. I was thirteen and thought that the class was awesome. Now if you are under the impression that I was great the first time around you are wrong. I was the one goofy awkward kid who was there having fun. Julie thought that I would be gone by the end of three months because I couldn’t hack it. She was just glad that I was there having fun......

What Is American Dream

...November 2015 What Is The American Dreams? Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a book written by Hunter S. Thompson published in the year 1971. The book is a reflection of American politics during Thompson’s time. It is written with the author (Thompson) as the main character, but he uses a fictional name to avoid repercussions and allow for more artistic license. The book takes place in the early 1970s and the main character, Raoul Duke, is sent to Las Vegas to write an article on the 4th annual “Mint Race 400” buggy race. Under the advice of his lawyer (Dr. Gonzo) both drive out to Las Vegas on a nonstop LSD and mescaline trip. Unfortunately, Duke and Gonzo engage themselves in an adventure of the lifetime. Somehow things go berserk and both of them end up abandoning work and engaging in an experience that involves disparaging everyone around them. The obvious theme of the book is The American Dream. Thompson wrote a lot about the American Dream and just like most people, he believed in the American Dream. Hunter S. Thompson portrays the American Dream as illusionary, as there are some places where he says that the American Dream is about money. The American Dream is a phrase which is heard, at some point, by most people today and the meaning has been understood since the founding of America. The definition of the American Dream appears to be different for most people, depending on their views. Probably the most accepted explanation of the American Dream is that it “is......

What Is the American Dream

...something. I believe that The American Dream is exactly that, the climb to become successful in America. It is a commonly known fact that immigrants in history and in the present day have come to the United States to start again and make better lives for themselves and their families. Although this dream means different things for every individual person, all of them reach for something they don’t have, and they usually originate from a lower class than their end point. An example of The American Dream in action is the background behind renowned special effects makeup artist Glenn Hetrick. He was raised in the lowly suburbs of Bethlehem Pennsylvania, and his interest in makeup effects drove him to participate in local theater productions as a fledgling makeup artist in high school. Once he graduated from high school, he moved to the big city of New York and took various film jobs, mostly for horror films. Soon enough, Mr. Hetrick was noticed by big time movie and special effects companies, and was being hired to work for them. After years of hard work under their corporations, he finally became the owner of the Optic Nerve Studios in Hollywood, and more recently has opened up his very own original studio, The Alchemy Studios. The point I’ve tried to make behind Mr. Hetrick’s life story is that he, like many others, started from little to nothing and worked his way up. There are no shortcuts, no get out of jail free cards. The American Dream can not be realized in the......

For What We May Hope According to Descartes

...very essential to him. Imagination and sensory perception can be in existence without the mind to contain them. These sensory perceptions he argues could be created by God, himself someone or just something else externally. From the western philosophy, the mind is strictly stands out from the external bodies around it. In this case we can actually point out for instance two people who are dissimilar yet the same thing and therefore analogically argue that mind and body may be two different ways of looking at things. Additionally, holding the mind and the external world as two things which are totally distinct, the mind would be trapped inside the body and it will be unable to know what is happening externally except through sensory surfaces. HOW DESCARTES COULD BE FALSELY HOPEFUL. From the argument of Universal doubt, and from the dreams argument, Descartes argues that he have perceptions which are very much alike his sensations while dreaming. He further argues that there no signs that can distinguish dream experience from waking experience and therefore there could be a possibility that he could be dreaming and hence all his perceptions are false. We believe that there is an all infinite powerful God who has created us and in his power, he can make us deceived even in matters concerning mathematical knowledge which to us seems very obvious, hence, there is a possibility of us being deceived even about the structure of the world mathematically. On the other hand, we......
