Everyone has different uses for writing. Some use it to channel their creativity, some use it as a means of making money and some, like me, use it to vent. I always had writing assignments in school but none of them really had an impact on my life until the summer before junior year in high school. That summer was a terrible summer for me. Nothing went the way I had hoped and I was unhappy. My boyfriend and I broke up the night before my last exam. I would talk to my friends about it but I felt like it became too much for them. I knew they wanted to make me happy so they would listen but I didn’t feel right about putting them through it so I started writing. Whenever I needed a break from everyone around me, I would grab a piece of paper and a pen and just start pouring my thoughts onto paper. It was usually about how I was going through a tough time, which now seems increasingly petty, but at that time paper was my confidant. I wrote everything, even if it was a paragraph, or even barely a line. I used to transfer all the bad thoughts in my mind onto paper and just leave it there. I substituted my friends for paper. Paper wouldn’t talk back or tell me that it wasn’t god for me. It would just listen, absorb, and always be there. And that’s when I fell in love with writing.
This is when writing became a habit. When I got over irrelevant boyfriend issues, I still had that craving to write something, anything, so I started writing about my day. If I had had a bad day, I would sit with my book and pen and just write till I overcame the bad thoughts. Those rare but sweet moments when I would go into a stream of consciousness showed me glimpses of certain peculiarities I didn’t even know I possessed. Sometimes I would re read things that I had written previously and I would be able to feel what I had felt when I was writing those words. All those memories would come…...

Changed Forever

...Changed Forever For years, I have wanted to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. My youngest son had been there and was immensely touched by this. Therefore, I determined this assignment would be the perfect opportunity for me to visit and in turn write about it. Immediately, in all honesty, I understood that this memorial and museum was a dedication of peace and hope that will change you forever. The museum is a place of amazing transformation that offers a unique insight of the events that took place on April 19, 1995. As you enter the museum, the first item you see is a huge wall that states, “Just like communities everywhere, it is the start of a day like any other day”, but as you proceed, the story of that day is revealed gallery by gallery showing you that it was not an ordinary day. As you approach the end of the third floor, which is where the tour begins, you are greeted by Gus, an elderly man, probably in his early seventies and full of knowledge of the events that took place that day. He explains that we are about to hear an actual audio recording of a water board hearing that was held across the street from the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on the morning of the bombing. Our group, roughly 20 people, is ushered into a room where the audio is playing, approximately two minutes into the hearing; you hear a loud explosion followed by panicked shouting as the faces of the 168 victims killed that day are displayed on the......

...FOREVER Si Jack ay isang simpleng tao na may simpleng pangarap sa buhay ang makahanap ng babaeng mamahalin nya at mamahalin sya habang buhay. “NGSB”, No Girlfriend Since Birth, sumpa daw para kay Jack, hindi nya alam kung bakit sa lahat ng babaeng niligawan nya ay wala kahit isa ang sumagot sa kanya.

...Left in the bookshelves full of dust and webs lies the, Book of Sands. Many pass by it, feeling the chills, power, and loneness coming from the books direction. But, no one dares to get close to the Book of Sands, for it is said to be haunted by something evil. It said that the last person who dared to get the Book of Sands was haunted until he/ or she was never to be again. Since then, no one wouldn’t look its way and pretend it wasn’t there. Everyone would stay away in fear that they could be next. All of them fear it, but no one is brave enough to get to the book and suffer the consequences. Except for one; Alexander Steuben, was a bully, thought he was the greatest boy in the world and that he was invincible. He felt so great and invincible, that he announced to the whole town, “I Alexander Steuben, will get rid of this book and save this town from living in fear. Poor little and naïve Alexander, didn’t know what was coming to him in the end. Late that night with the wind blowing softly, the streets quiet from the usual busy streets and laughing children, Alexander walked up the stairs to the building that will soon foretell his destiny. He entered the quiet building, squeaks here and there in the silent building; a low breeze coming from one particular door, there lays the Book of Sands. He stares and stares, until he finally opens the door, and walks down the stairs towards the book. He feels the chills, power, and the lonely feeling everyone in town talks about.......

Offers Last Forever Unless Expressly Revoked. Critically Evaluate This Statement as It Relates to the Formation of Contracts.

...An offer is where one party namely the offeror outlines the terms and conditions under which he is willing to be legally bound and the offeree is the person to whom the offer is made. It may be contested that an offer never last forever and there are several situations where an offer can be terminate and these can range from lapse of reasonable time, failure of a pre-condition to counter offer amongst others. If an offer is not accepted then there can be no legal contract between both parties An offer may be terminated when reasonable time has lapsed as was in the case of Ramsgate Victoria Hotel v Montefore (1866) where the defendant applied for shares in the hotel company. He heard nothing and then after 5 months he received a letter of acceptance. By this time he had decided that he did not want the shares. The courts held that the lapse of time was so great that the offer to buy the shares had lapsed. This case shows that an offer doesnot last forever. Where an offer was made subject to a pre-condition and it was found that the condition was not what had been expressed in the offer, the offeree can refuse the offer as expressed in the case Financing Ltd v Stimson (1962). In this case, the defendant signed an "offer to buy" a car on hire-purchase from a finance company. The document had been given to him by the car dealer. The document had a clause which said that the agreement would not be binding until it had been accepted by the finance company. The......

Forever with You

...Forever With You PROLOGUE I never knew life could be this cruel. I never knew it would all end up like this. Life is so unfair. And I started to dwell on that fact. Why would he have to be the one? A tear fell from my eye. No! This can’t be happening! I knew at an instant that our battle is over. I broke into a run outside the hospital and as soon as I was out, the crisp of the cold night air engulfed me. I screamed at the top of my lungs as a blinding flash of light struck my eyes. I saw a glimpse of a shiny black Volvo: the very same car that started all these misery. It’s the car of death: the one that almost killed me and my beloved. Instead of sprawling away from the road, I smiled unwarily as the loud tire screeches filled the silence of the night. I was sent flying over board as the bone shattering impact met my build. This must be what dying feels like. And if this is true love, we’ll see each other again. His words echoed in my mind. I fell on the road feeling the cold asphalt on my skin and that’s when I closed my eyes . . . forever. Chapter 1 Moving “Sehun-ah!” A booming voice awoke me from my trance. “You coming or not? The car’s waiting. Ppalli.” I mumbled something to myself as I caught a final glimpse on my window. Why do we even have to leave this house? The weather’s so good it’s a shame for me for not being able to enjoy it. Sigh. Screw this moving-somewhere-else idea. It would be fun skiing - without falling on the water of......

Forever Gold

...Forever Gold As I sit here, and reflect on the poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost, one story comes to my mind. On one particular afternoon, my family had decided to go to Prairie Winds Park, for a little adventure. When we arrived, my older brother had asked me if I wanted to ride a bicycle down the hill that the park had. Now, keep in mind that this hill is very large, almost perpendicular to the ground and covered in rocks and bumps. I, being the naïve girl that I was, didn’t even hesitate to say yes, or to think of all the injuries the trip down the hill on the bicycle could give me. And so, my older brother and I both settled on the bicycle ready to go downhill. The bicycle was clearly meant for one person so I sat on the metal frame in between the seat and the handlebars. We landed on the ground with the front wheels hitting the ground first and the back wheels still in the air. All the while, I was screaming my head off. The slight brush with death sent a chill down my spine. When I finally decided to open my eyes, I realized that both my older brother and I were safe. I was oh, so thankful. But even with the scare that I had had a little part of me wanted to do it all over again. So, we did. We continued, and each time, it was much more exhilarating. After about the third time, a person patrolling the park stopped our fun, and informed us about the many rules that we apparently were breaking.......

Diamonds Are Forever

...Jackie Labor Case Study #2: Diamonds are Forever 2/11/2015 Provide a historical overview of the campaign. What were the factors in the industry/market that led to it? What specific consumers were targeted? Did competitive factors play a role? When was it launched and how long did it run? Who were the key players/strategists/agencies involved? * During the time of this diamond campaign, there was a diamond rush going on in South Africa. Every diamond company raced over to start mining in South Africa. Cecil Rhodes had bought land from brothers Johannes Nicholas and Diederik Arnoldus de Beer. On March 12, 1888, De Beers Consolidated Mines Ltd. Was formed and the empire began to spread throughout Europe. Sir Ernest Oppenhiemer grew tremendous interest in the company and ended up establishing the Diamond Trading Co. in Kimberly, South Africa and London, England. Harry Oppenheimer was on the board of De Beer’s company. He took a trip to the United States to test a pilot marketing campaign but ended up with this full-fledged advertising campaign that has been successful ever since (Posnock, 2006). * In 1931, through the mist of The Great Depression and later World War 2, diamond competitors were emerging such as Gemological Institute of America (GIA), The Diamond’s Dealer Club of New York, and Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association (Posnock, 2006). * Russia found diamond mines that were similar to the ones found in South Africa, so they became a crucial......

...Forever 21: Dealing with America’s fear of aging and death Abstract This paper is about confronting America’s fear of the issues of aging and death. Over the years, American culture has grown uncomfortable with matters of growing old and death. The basis of this thinking is rooted in the mind and influenced by society. There is an ever increasing desire that’s rampant across our nation to remain young. This can be seen in the media, marketing for different products from makeup to apparel. Americans want to remain young for as long as they possibly can. In 1984, the band Alphaville came out with the song “Forever Young” to express America’s heart cry. However, aging and death is a part of life and a direct result of the fall of man. Aging and death were not the original condition of humanity, rather punishment that resulted from rebellion against God’s commandment. This paper examines why there is aging and death, America’s response to it, and a solution to rightly mature in the process. Since long ago America’s heart cry has been to stay young forever. In 1984, the band Alphaville came out with the song “Forever Young” to communicate the nation’s desire. In cities across the country and around every turn, materialism is vocalizing the longing for youth everlasting. This constant struggle with “wants” versus “reality” has left individuals searching for ways to cope. In addition, the lifespan of human beings was not always an average of eighty years. One thing to take into...

The Last

...Benjamin Lucas COMM240 – Interpersonal Paper The Last I recall a brightly lit room on a Sunday morning, as I kissed her on the forehead, “I love you…” Slowly she opened her eyes and as she sat next to me, “Hey… Um… How many were there before me?” she asked. “Like, how many girls did you love before me?” “Love? Five…” I stated. “I loved five women before you.” The disappointment in her eyes after a sigh, though she smiled… “What are their names?” “…Who, What, When, Where, Why…” I said to her. “Can you tell me about them?” “Who I loved, was a girl from college. I wasn’t exactly close to her, but with some superficial facts and a few interactions over a semester, you know, like most guys fantasizing over girls they barely know, I filled in the blanks like a fairytale author. And who she became in my head was probably more than the reality. She was a third year, sorority girl, and yeah, I was an infatuated freshman, sure, but the several times you get to spend together outside of class… It really allowed me to see, she also had a good heart and a bright spirit. The only problem was, so did just about every other guy. And while she turned me down nicely, I swear… There were times when it seemed like the cliché sorority girl may have felt something for the typical awkward freshman.” “What I loved, was an old friend, but she was more than just a friend. We met early in college and kept in touch through the years. We saw each other grow, and change...

Forever Chew Marketing Paper

...Forever Chew the 12 hour gum Regina McWilliams Strayer University Marketing Management Dr. Karen Mountain August 20, 2010 My product name is Forever Chew the 12 hour longest lasting gum. The Forever Chew gum line will offer a gum that is very well capable of lasting 12 hours of more. This paper will discuss Forever Chew advertising strategy and how it aligns with its marketing goals. Forever Chew reason to advertise would be to increase the company’s sales and profits for the long run. The company wants to remain competitive and up to date on advertising to keep our name in the gum-line loop. Advertising will more than likely help with how a customer purchase a popular gum being sold. One of the many goals is to start out with the local pharmacies and health food stores advertising and selling the Forever Chew gum line. Forever Chew will advertise its gum line and the other Forever Chew products on Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and Myspace because it is free via the internet. The websites mentioned above have more than 250,000 fans that are using applications on the websites that could advertise the Forever Chew product and bring on more customers. Forever Chew aligns with the marketing goals because it’s a sugar free gum and sugarless chewing-gum brands are taking the lead in the retail gum sales as health-conscious consumers chose alternatives to sugary treats. (WR. Wrigley Jr, 2009). Forever Chew has created a new......
