The book I would like to present is called “Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow” by Peter Hoeg. It was the intricate title that called my attention. I immediately thought about the Eskimos that have more than twenty different words for snow, but the question what exactly the book was going to be about still remained open. It was February, a fatiguing winter period and I was longing for someone with fresh approach to “icy” things that seemed totally unbearable by the end of the coldest season. I couldn’t but start the book that was like an enormous glacier, with arctic cold and frosty beauty coming from it. But let’s start from the beginning.
First of all I’d like to introduce the author Peter...

The difference between feeling petrified out of your wits and feeling irresistible describes what self-confidence is. According to William (37), one way of being happy and living a better life is increasing our self-confidence.
Since developing self-confidence is not an instantaneous event, there are several steps one needs to take before he/she is able to fully develop their self confidence. This paper therefore looks at these steps and their relevance in the process of developing self-confidence. Ganesan, (9), states that the first thing one should do is to recognize his/her insecurities. Here, one should identify...

Love is a word with many definitions. Although, Webster defines love as a strong feeling of attraction resulting from sexual desire; enthusiasm or fondness. But to me love is not just a feeling, but it is the way that you treat the ones you care for. You should treat the ones you love so considerately through your actions they'll know you care and love them. Love in my eyes, is making that sacrifice for someone, knowing that you might regret it sooner or later. Love is how you make another person feel when you are in their presence. Many people show or express their love for someone in many and different ways. To me love is in the actions not the words. The true meaning of love like what is...

The best holiday ever
My best holiday was when I went to San Diego, California with my family. When my dad told me I was very exited, because it was going to be my first time in the United State of America. I took a month break of school and went to America with my family. I was going to see some members of my family, who I had never met before in my whole live. I was exited to see my family and on the other hand I was exited to see America.
We flew in the morning. I can not tell why, but I have always enjoyed getting up in the morning and getting ready to drive to the airport. I can not explain the feeling I get, but there is one thing I know, it is a wonderful feeling.

During adolescence, teens become interested and involved in dating because of
the desire to belong with others. As a result, it is clear that over the time, romantic
relationships gain in importance. Adolescents crave to have an intimate romantic
relationship to which love is given and received without restriction. Myers (2010) supported the
need to belong theory by asserting that people who find a person complimenting their
needs to whom they can share their problems with, makes those people more
acknowledgeable. Belongingness is supported by close, intimate relationship which
tends to be healthier and happier. Because of this need to belong, we can see nowadays that most students...

It is important to live life to its fullest potential, enjoying every moment and making it all count because who knows if I will ever get a second chance. As J.K Rowling said “As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.” I personally believe in making a difference and creating an impact to this world. When you accomplish the objectives you have set in life, you feel more satisfied and pleased with yourself. It is not always about helping people around you and making them smile but also feeling worthy about yourself. Regardless of your age, being able to look back and see the impact you have created or the difference you have...

Music is a part of my life. It affects me a lot. It is with me through the good and the bad.
Through music, I can express my feelings. It is a motivation and a method I enjoy my life.
One of the best way to express the feelings is through music. Music delivers messages.
For instance, I would rather sing a song that has lyrics or the beats fits my feeling than speak it
out. I am more comfortable that way. When I am sad, I will sing ballad songs such as “Back to
December”, “Teardrops on my Guitar” by Taylor Swift, “Complete” by Girls’ Generation, and

THE COMPANY IS GOOD AT COMMUNICATION
The company communication is low because with all of the way the employees can talk with anyone they want too when they have a problem. It gives them the feeling that whatever they have to say will not be taking seriously and so to me this would be the reason for them to have a low score on the communication. When you have employees who feel like just because they do not agree with something that their feelings are not be considered when it comes to making changes that would help boost the why employees are feeling about the way the...

"As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself
transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect" (Kafka 1757).
This opening is famous not only for its startling content but also for its
calm, matter-of-fact style which then sets the tone for the rest of the
story. Along with Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and Dante's Inferno, Franz
Kafka's "The Metamorphosis" has one of the most-memorized and most
attention-catching opening lines.
Gregor Samsa feels that he has been treated as a lowly insect and comes to
feel that he is one; the story makes the leap from...

Jack Finney starts off the story with Tom Benecke sitting at a desk in the living room of his eleventh floor apartment, typing a memo for work. His wife Clare is preparing to go to the movies alone. With difficulty, Tom opens a stubborn window, and a gust of wind blows his paper out of the window onto a ledge. We see how Finney casually introduces that his apartment is on the eleventh floor of the building, in the great city of New York. Before you even begin reading the story, you get an eerie feeling just from the title of the short story. Then when you begin to read the story, and he introduces...

Film Critique # 4
University of Maryland University College
August 11, 2013
I do not whether I like this film or not. I say this because, the film had a dark yet dry feeling to me. I am not saying that the story was not good. Somehow the film’s sound and effects and plot did not really capture my attention. That being said, I thought that the film had many good qualities to make it a great film for this time.
The acting was pretty dry, by that I mean that movements and dialogue were slow at times. My guess is that the director intended to create a feeling of confusion or build a sense of feeling of that of someone with vertigo....

What exactly is happiness and what can engender it? Though it is defined as the condition of being content, many people may have their own ideas of happiness. It is commonly thought of as having a lot of money, power, or fame. But can these things actually make people happy? Happiness is actually more than what most people think it is. It can be mysterious and exclusive, sought after by many, but not gained by all. Happiness can come from many different sources but perhaps the most closer ones are friends and family. Happiness resides not in transient possessions or gold, but instead in the conviction that we are loved. Happiness, which is often thought of as a fairly simple...

How does Alagiah present his views about being a reporter in Somalia?
George Alagiah presents his views about being a reporter in Somalia in quite an unusual manner. The purpose of this piece, ‘A Passage to Africa’, is to raise awareness to the public of all the poverty in Africa and the conditions the poor Africans are forced to live in. Also, Alagiah wrote it to discuss how touching an life-changing it was for him when the sick man mentioned in the piece smiled at him. The main reason he wrote it, however, is to inform, since he is a reporter for BBC.
Being a reporter, especially one for such a reputable news company, requires one to be desensitized. Alagiah is clearly completely...

If I do not study, I am far away to attempts my achievement to my future goals. That's a really stupid idea, if you ask me.

Morrison makes the passage very negative by giving a one sided argument against the multitude of surveillance cameras. He shows his personal views giving the impression of negativity as this is the only source of feeling towards that particular person. ‘Made by a sinister Minister of Internal Repression.’ Using the shocking story of the suicide on BBC News tries to persuade the reader that surveillance is used as cruel bait for prime time television for the rest of the nation to gawp at this man’s final moments.

How does color affect one’s mood?
Review of Literature:
Colors may just seem simple and unimportant, but they affect our daily lives more than we may know. If someone is feeling angry, it could just be because they’re angry, or it could be perhaps that they are surrounded by or looking at the color red. That’s right! People’s moods can change just because they are looking at different colors! There are many theories on how just a simple color can change one’s whole mood.
According to Johnson (2007), color does affect mood by producing certain chemicals and stimulating different feelings such as hunger. For example, blue can make one feel calm...

In the first situation with Stan and Alex at the Davis Agency the biggest difference was the technological advances that could be under taken to improve process to deal with the client’s needs. Now Stan being an old timer is having a very difficult time trying any new ideas that cut him out of the loop. Even though Alex conferred with Connor (who was very satisfied) on his way of doing a project Stan felt as if Alex was being insubordinate so wrote him up. Unfortunately, when dealing with older individuals that are unwilling to change you will come to an impasse and not be able to best address which way is different or...

The wind howls across the wide and open American great plains.
The greatest of these three short stories at evoking a feeling similar to that of being in the American south “A Rose for Emily”, “Dust Tracks on a Dirt Road”, and “The Life You Save May be Your Own” is “Dust tracks on a dirt road”, followed by “The life you save may be your own”, and finally “A rose for Emily”
In Dust Tracks on a dirt road, Hurstons use of imagery, telling us about her gingham dress and how most kids did not wear shoes evoked feelings similar to those that arose as a child when children would run around without shoes, get into a scuffle or two, and be home by dinner unless you wanted a bit of a whipping with...

Emily Dickinson’s poem, “After Great Pain,” has brilliantly recreated the kind of suffering we all undergo after something terrible and excruciating has happened in our lives. The specific cause of this pain within this poem doesn’t matter; whatever the cause may have been, the response is still the same and the response is what matters most in this poem. Every person who has had something terrible happen to them will always respond differently to the event. The theme to this poem seems to be that the existence and the power of pain and how pain can overwhelm an individual to the point of unfeeling.
In the first stanza of the poem, it is explained that after some time of great pain or...

I have, on the other hand, found myself being motivated to achieve the private life of interpersonal communion. I have always felt more driven to find bonds with family and friends, creating a tight knit environment. Looking at the study of personality, I would score high on the PSE in the area of intimacy. I say this because I find myself taking part in conversations...

Bartleby the Scrivener
The meaningful projection in this story is the walls. These walls are symptoms of separation and represent Bartleby's separation from both reality and people. This set the tone for the story, as the relationships with each other seem to be purely professional in nature. This impersonality of the characters is significant - the business based world in which they operate has no room for personal interaction. Nothing is learned about any of the characters beyond what they are like in the office.
The walls serve as a safe haven for Bartleby, as he is in a world with societal expectations and he chooses not to conform and the walls, in essence, allow him to...
