  • Florida State, First Impression - 1,374 words
    Florida State, First Impression Florida State, First Impression When I decided to come to Florida State, surprisingly enough it wasn't for the parties. I was actually excited about coming here and studying (don't ask me why). Every other school I looked at I judged them according to how much of a party school they were and what the girls looked like. Then I end up at the #1 party school with a 5:1 ratio of girls to guys. In fact when I came here I wasn't even planning on rushing a Fraternity. When I got here though it was a whole different story. I can remember the week before school started, walking down the hall of my dorm and seeing newspaper clippings on all the doors. After a few days I ...

Although his interest and participation in theatre began at an early age, it was just after he finished his doctorate at Columbia that he was asked to return to Brazil to work with the Arena Theatre in So Paulo.

  • Fools Ball - 564 words
    Fool's Ball Fools Ball Many people enjoy watching or playing the game called football. However, there are many people that think football is just a waste of time and money. I, for instance, am one of those people. Whether it is just hometown high school football, College football or even NFL football I think that football is an awful representation of athletic ability. There are many cons including the physical effect that it has on the players, the amount of money that is spent on the players, and the message that it is sending to children. First of all, football is one of the most dangerous sports that is played in the United States whether it is the little leagues or the NFL. Players are ...

    Gun Control Americans are faced with an ever-growing problem of violence. Our streets have become a battleground where the elderly are beaten for their social security checks, where terrified women are viciously attacked and raped.

We cannot ignore the damage that these criminals are doing to our society, and we must take actions to stop these horrors.

  • Life Or Death: Who Chooses - 2,215 words
    Life or Death: Who Chooses? In Roman times, abortion and the destruction of unwanted children was permissible, but as out civilization has aged, it seems that such acts were no longer acceptable by rational human beings, so that in 1948, Canada along with most other nations in the world signed a declaration of the United Nations promising every human being the right to life. The World Medical Association meeting in Geneve at the same time, stated that the utmost respect for human life was to be from the moment of conception. This declaration was re-affirmed when the World Medical Association met in Oslo in 1970. Should we go backwards in our concern for the life of an individual human being? ...

    Message In A Bottle Rolling waves gently brushed upon the sand and nipped softly at my toes. I gazed out into the oblivion of blue hue that lay before me. I stared hopefully at sun-filled sky, but I couldnt help but wonder how I was going to get through the day. Honestly, I never thought in a million years that my daughter and I would be homeless. Oh, how I yearned for our house in the suburbs. A pain wrenched at my heart when I was once reminded again of my beloved husband, Peter. I missed him so much and couldnt help but ask God why he was taken from us. Living underneath Pier 14 was no life for Emily and me. I had to get us out of here and back on our feet. My stomach moaned angrily. I ne ...

  • Reversals - 577 words
    Reversals annon 'Youth is wasted on the young.' And 'if I only knew then what I know now!' In my teen years I couldn't be bothered with trying to understand those cryptic phrases; didn't I already know everything I needed to know? I never dreamed that the decisions I made in my relatively youthful years would have such an impact on my future. I always felt that I would never look back upon my life and say 'I wish I had taken more time in considering my choices.' But I have found myself doing just that. If I were able to rewrite history, I would pick a different career when I reenlisted in the Army, I would seek out opportunities to enhance my future job options, and finally, I would have don ...
