read that. it's a theory i created, and it's completely based around theism.

so you can be an agnostic, or a believer,

but being an atheist is grasping onto hope more than any theist could ever. Go have a small read.

Basically what I'm saying to you right now, is that if you're an atheist, it's because you have little brain movement or have not thought a lot about Religion. Lol. "

heres the thread if you would like to join in on this discussion.

Question and answer to Their eyes were wathcing god

With love being a major symbol in the book, how does Janie define it and how is it different from what others might think?

Janie likes her independence along with her love. She would define it as being on equal terms with one another. her relationship with Tea Cake represented this, while, the ones with Logan and Jody didnt. Everyone else would define love as a nessesity to fulfilling life; love is finding what you don't have or cannot have in another person.

I would score myself with Seven. My question involves the book and is about the main charactor. I do not have spelling errors, my answer did not consist of run-on sentances, and it makes sense as a whole to the book.

Repeat steps 1-4 for a book of literary merit. You can find these at or you can email me for approval

podcast essay

The music is mellow; making you think that everything is dreamy and everyday from now on will be fine. If you listen to the words, the man is depressed. He wants his girl, but she doesn’t want him. He really wants her to come back to him, he thinks to himself" maybe the sun will shine today"; he has hope that maybe she will come back.

Impossible Germany, Unlikely Japan; obviously this means something to the writer, others may not perceive what he means. “I know you’re not listening” shows that he knows that people wouldn’t know what he is really talking about.

The album as a whole is all about heartbreak, hopelessness, and even a hint that there is hope. Also there is a lot of giving up in the songs. The writer is very confused on what he wants to do and what he really thinks will happen. One minute he is hopeful that he will get his girl back. Another he just feels like he should stop trying

If you just listened to the song, not the lyrics, then you could easily fall asleep, or read. These songs are great for just letting your mind wander. The first time I listened to the album, was in class. As I was listening to it, I tried to actually listen, but it was hard. All I wanted to do was put my head down and daydream.

You cannot listen to this album for long, unless you were intending on falling asleep with it. I would have to change it up a bit with some metal then some country and even something happier. As soon as I have to actually pick apart a song that I could have enjoyed, I tend to not like it very much anymore. Listening to it right now I want to just turn it off because it is annoying me actually. I need to finish this yet I’m on the edge of falling asleep.

This whole album makes it hard to differentiate each song, its like one very long song that never ends, and you desperately want it to so you can listen to a much better song that wont annoy you. Well, in the songs, the writer talks about very destructive things such as war and loneliness, but then he says everything will get better eventually. He still, after everything, has a good brain and can think past all the bad things in life. He has the will, for now, to move on and be happy. But you know that the sadness will come back, it just seems to be his way. Maybe he needs a shrink.

All in all, the album music was alright, the lyrics had good meaning if you’re in the mood to actually sit down and try to understand everything he has to offer. Would I listen o this album again? Yes I would, when I want to take an afternoon nap. Otherwise, I will stick with my heavy metal and upbeat happy country tunes. I hope that we can switch topics in the future and listen to happier things. And also, enough with the future, live in the moment for once.

collin raye- Love, Me ALBUM POST

I read a note my Grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me
He said, "Boy, you might not understand, but a long, long time ago,
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none, but I loved your Grandma so.

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
I found this letter, and this is what it said :

"If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I'll be loving you
Love, Me."

I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away
In the doorway of the church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray
I know I've never seen him cry in all my fifteen years
But as he said these words to her, his eyes fill up with tears

"If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I'll be loving you
Love, Me."

Catcher in the rye Writing prompt 11/13/07

Many books have an adventure or lesson to be learned. There are certain symbols within the book that help you unerstand the meaning of the book as a whole. In the catcher in the rye, there are many of these sybols to help you see the big picture.

One of the symbols used in the book is the birds. The birds represent Holden. They represent him because whenever he is faced with trouble or fear he runs or 'flys' away from his problems, just like the birds. Along side the birds are the golfish in the fountain.

The goldfish in the fountain add to the story as a whole also. The goldfish represent everbody in the world except holden. These goldfish, no matter if they're scared or not, have to face their fears and deal with life because they have no way out of it. The goldfish deal with life just like everybody else in the world. Together, these symbols shine light on holdens world.

While Holden is sitting next to the fountain, he observes the goldfish trapped in their water world and he observes as the birds fly away from the cold winter. Holden is the bird that flies away to the safe place, and the world is the goldfish stuck in their icy fountain, stuck with the problems they have to deal with.
These symbols in the book as a whole show you the problems and the things running through Holden's mind. They show that instead of fleeting from your problems, you like everyone else must face your problems and move on.

robot dreams

Some similartiies between 1984 and robot dreams are that the robots and the people act one in the same. they both do not feel as humans should. Also both worlds use people for doing the dirty work of "higher authorities." The robots and humans arte told what to do and think, what to believe in. Another important thing about both of them is that if either human or robot becomes a danger to society, they shoot them.

Some differences between both books arethat humans are humans and robots simply are not. they probably also live in different places, different worlds, environments.

George Orwell would probably tell asimov at a luncheon that robots would never have taken over humans positions in working fields as much as he has you believe. also the government would much rather have control over the people as they can make them do as they wish. they would agree on, however, that the government does and probably always will have a way over the people to a certain depends on the poeple on how far they will let the government control them.
