At that night, Larry’s friends came to discuss about the incident. At 12:00 midnight, the spookiness started to come into existence. At that time, they were in Larry’s study room which seems to be fearful. When they feel scared, they decided to read some novels. Suddenly, they heard a telephone ringing sound.
“These days I live in three worlds: my dreams, and the experiences of my new life, which trigger memories from the past.” (20). Here is the first introduction into the structure of this story. Throughout the course of the book, there are moments that trigger memories of Beah’s past, and many of these are the dreams he experiences. The dreams show that even though he may be rehabilitated and free from the war, the memories from his past continue to haunt his existence. Most of the dreams he experiences are nightmares, and many incorporate death of some form into them.
I have waked at night many times and found her in a corner, readin’ of a book. Now what do you make of that? HALE: Why, that’s not necessarily…” (page 21) In this passage John Hale has just come into Salem and Giles Corey is just inquiring about his wife reading strange books that he claims she is hiding from him. This normally would’ve just been a strange occurrence but Giles now has John Hale to ask because he is an expert in the matter. He means no wrong in asking these questions and does not mean to accuse his wife of
Ellie swears a lot, because she remembers that she has to write an essay about Virginia Wolf before the next morning. But there is a problem; she has no ink. She tries to remember the night, to figure out how many hours of sleep she has received. Slowly she recalls the night. “Eight hours of sleep is OK.” she thinks.
Marilyn Monroe would marry and divorce three times during her short life; it has been reported that she also had several affairs (Marilyn Monroe biography, 2013). She also suffered miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy during her marriages (Stephan, 2013). While Marilyn was a super star, she had many problems in her personal life, ranging from illness, to depression, and drug dependency (Marilyn Monroe biography, 2013).

Marilyn was seeing several different psychologists; at the time of her death on of those Ralph S. Greenson actually found Marilyn’s body (Marilyn Monroe biography, 2013).
The book I chose for my independent reading project is called “Burned” by Ellen Hopkins. The project I chose to do is a book box because the book I’ve read has a lot of items that correspond to the events and characters in my book. The items I have chosen from my book is a journal, a diaper, a ring, a cell phone, and a pregnancy test. The first item I chose was a journal. The reason I chose this item is because in the book, the main character Pattyn Von Stratten used a journal write down all her troubles because her librarian Ms. Rose told her it would be good for her.
I chose this topic because honestly, I am not someone who stays on top of political views and I do not have anyone in my life who inspires me. But I do have a love for books and to be able to speak about a book that I have read fifty times seemed to be the right topic for me. I figured that if I have to make a speech it needed to be about something I knew about so when I begin to mess up and forget what I wrote I could just wing it. The first time that I heard about this book was in 2001; I was pregnant with my first child and I was extremely moody. I needed a hobby other than sitting around crying about everything, so my mom made the suggestion I shut up and read a book.
Soon, almost everyone knew except the teacher. Even though many people looked, I held my values and didn’t look even though I knew it was there. I ended up getting full score without cheating. But, one time I poorly demonstrated the positive side of the trait was when I was 12. I told my mom that I would go to sleep at ten o’clock, but I took my iPod to bed and stayed up until one in the morning.
After this information was recorded I was to give a detailed account of my feelings, reactions, thoughts, fears, desires, questions, etc. This was to be recorded in my journal each night before going to bed. In the morning I was required to re-read the previous night's entry and make any comments I felt were necessary about what I'd written. I was often surprised at the things I'd written the night before. Very often I'd reacted to things that seemed so unimportant in the light of day but were a major concern just
Even in her suffering, Austen still managed to pick up her pen and write. She started to write another piece called Sanditon in 1817, but it was never finished. She finally succumbed to her illness, Addison’s Disease, on July 18, 1817. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were both published posthumously in December of that same year where Ms. Austen was finally recognized as being an author (Cody). Jane Austen is one of the few novelists in world of literature who is
