Content Summary
“You fit into me” may be perceived as very brief, but the four lines have such a deeper meaning and can be interpreted in numerous ways depending on how you view things. Overall, you fit into is about a relationship between a women and a men. Throughout the poem the speaker is describing her experiences in this relationship. Her relationship can be viewed from either a negative or a positive perspective.
The first two lines “you fit into me like a fish hook” can be interpreted of a wonderful relationship that the speaker feels that her and her lover are compatible for each other. On the other hand, from a negative stand point a fish hook can be looked as a sharp and unpleasant object. It can also be about a relationship that was once perfect but feeling as if you can’t live without the person. Another theory that can be supported is that the speaker in the poem is in an abusive relationship and the pain she goes through, but yet she seems to still believe that the relationship is going well, because she’s holding on to the past and what was once good and hurts her not to be with her lover.

I consider both theories support that the poem is about a relationship that has once been perfect between a men and women. The speaker may feel as if they are perfect, but the other individual causes pain towards her. The woman is in an abusive relationship mentally and physically. Many times women find themselves settling in relationships because of “comfort” feeling as if they will not live without that individual despite the…...

A Poem to Me

...A Poem To Me ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Miranda Saake October 6, 2013 A Poem To Me The first thing that comes to my mind when thinking about poems are two thing. 1. Something from a time when our language of English was hard for us to understand mainly the era of Shakespeare. 2. The way it rhymes all the way to the end with fun or unique words. Not all poems have this or even need to have this quality of them, but this is what I think when thinking of poems. I am doing this paper over the poem “Lady from Cork.” The author is anonyms for who is listed but I don’t think I would put my name to this poem myself, especially if it was about a relative or spouse. I like this poem because of some of the funny rhymes in it. Like I said before this fits into my idea of a poem and it has the comical aspect to give it the win over me. The language is very comical. When you read this it rhymes like a children’s poem made to make them laugh. It in a small ways makes fun of this possible imaginary woman, or just states the obvious. The tone in regards to this area is hard to figure out when given those two options. It just is not long enough to make the decision on that end. The content to this is something I can relate to and many other as well most likely. In a world when two thirds of us are overweight we all can see this woman in our heads. I personally stay fit, and don’t much like obese people. Yes it is horrible of me, but I cannot help it at all. So this poem...

You Can't Touch Me

...”You can’t touch me” 1. ”You can’t touch me” is about a teacher called Mr. Goade. Mr. Goade is grapping a boy (Campbell) in his ear, because of the boy’s behavior. The boy takes another boys coat in the schoolyard and would not give it back, then Mr. Goade says to him that he have to deliver the jacket to the boy, but he will not hear what Mr. Goade says. Then Mr. Goade grabs the boy’s ear, and takes him to the headmistress office (Mrs. Baynes). Mrs Baynes takes a quick talk with Campell and short after Mr. Goade gets called into Mrs. Baynes office, she is not happy about that he has taking hold in the boy’s ear. The following day, is Mr. Baynes called to the office again, and the boy’s parents had said that the boy’s ear is in inflammation and that he cannot hear optimally. Mr. Goade ends up in trouble, which talk about suspension. 2. Ian Goade is a primary school teacher, he is intelligent, and people do not understand why a person so intelligent like him, ends up like a teacher. However, Ian likes his job and believes herself like the man he is. He thinks that the children/students looks forward to him, because he is a man. Ian is a determined man. He wants that all children have it good in school. When he grap’s Campell in his ear, I don’t think it’s because he want Campell something bad, he just want him to behave properly, but today teachers can’t touch the children without getting in trouble, so it was a bad decision. 3. The headmistress way of...

You Can't Touch Me

...You can’t touch me 1) Summary ”You can’t touch me” is a short story written by Blake Morrison in 2010. The short story is about a teacher’s use of physical coercion towards a primary school student to demonstrate his authority and the following consequences of that choice. The short story’s main character is the primary school teacher Ian Goade. One day in the schoolyard he observes a school bully, Campbell, teasing another student. Ian Goade breaks into the conflict and blames Campbell and tries to reprimand him and commands him to go with him to the headmistress of the school Mrs Baynes’ office. Campbell refuses to follow and then Ian Goade grabs his ear and drags him to Mrs Baynes. The headmistress sees Ian Goade’s handling of the conflict as wrong and so does Campbell’s mother who makes an official complaint about Ian Goade. Ian Goade tries to reason with Campbell’s mother and the headmistress but fails, resulting in an upcoming hearing with the governors. 2) Characterize Ian Goade Ian Goade is a primary school teacher, the narrator and the main character of the short story “You can’t touch me”. This characterization will focus on Ian Goade and why he used physical coercion instead of a more proper handling of the conflict. The dialogue used in the short story shows that Ian Goade is a man who has experienced other men’s authority physically. He tells about his father’s rages and that he remembers the physical methods his own teachers used when he was a...

A Fit and Healthy Me

... the gym, Zumba is another source of exercise I do to stay fit. Exercising is not only for me physically, but also helps me stay mentally positive and make good life decisions. Even if I am healthy, there could still be a chance of being sick. I face diseases every day whether it be with the environment, people around me, or the food I consume. Staying clean and watching my health is something else that I do to stay fit and healthy. Cooking a fresh meal is the healthiest meal anyone can have to stay healthy. I have a sweet tooth so I have cheat days where I do eat a few types of junk food, but I limit myself because junk food does ruin one’s health. Knowing the amount of hours I sleep and taking showers are other ways I keep my health under control. A good night’s rest relaxes the body and mind from all the activity it has gone through during the day. Staying drug free is another key part of maintaining my health in tip top shape. A healthy person is a happy person. Staying fit and healthy sounds hard, but it only takes self-discipline and knowledge with what I eat and knowing what I eat. Exercising keeps me full of energy and going to have a successful day. Eating “an apple a day keeps a doctor away” is not true; diseases lurk all around me, but just maintaining a good sleep schedule and limiting my intake on junk food keeps me far away from any doctor. They do say, “You are what you eat;” don’t be fake, cheap, or easy. I’d cook myself a well-balanced meal. In all......

... feeling further complicated Will’s choice, but he had his mind set on what he wanted to do. “I can't be the man I want to be with you. And that means that this - this just becomes...another reminder of what I am not” (324). Will demonstrated throughout the book that he didn’t want to live anymore. Louisa Clark and Will’s parents don’t want Will to kill himself and I can understand that, but I believe that Will should have the right to do with his life what he wants to. Lou began to have feelings for Will, and this further impacted the affect of Will’s death on her. “All I can say is that you make me... you make me into someone I couldn't even imagine. You make me happy, even when you're awful. I would rather be with you - even the you that you seem to think is diminished - than with anyone else in the world” (308). Further more, Will’s parents would have an even tougher time dealing with the death of their son. Mrs. Traynor’s struggle to prevent Will from killing himself could be seen when she was begging Lou to stay on the job as Will’s caretaker. “Please, don’t leave,’ Mrs Traynor said, quietly. ‘Will is comfortable with you. More so than he’s been for some time. I ... it would be very hard for us to replicate that with someone else” (136). I can follow why Lou and Mr. and Mrs. Traynor want to keep will alive. It’s because they both love him. Their love, and the potential impact that Will’s death on them is why this book helped to change my belief. This book did manage......

...The Discipline of Nursing Professional Boundaries As professionals in health care, the nurses’ aim is to have a therapeutic relationship with the patient, where boundaries of the relationship are strictly safe and within the code of ethics. Such boundaries are called professional boundaries that are defined as the ‘spaces between the nurse’s power and the client’s vulnerability’. Establishing these boundaries provide the nurse with authority to allow a confidential and professional therapeutic relationship with the patient (The National Council of State Boards of Nursing 2010, p. 25). To avoid breaches and infringement, these boundaries must be maintained throughout clinical practices and placements. The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council, also known as ANMC, (cited in Kralik & van Loon 2008, p. 76) define professional boundaries as ‘the limit of a relationship between a nurse and an individual or between a nurse and any significant other persons, which facilitates safe and therapeutic practice and results in safe and effective care’. In regards to nursing, the ANMC (cited in Levett-Jones & Bourgeois, 2009, p. 103) advocates that professional boundaries are related to the responsibility, performance, morals and actions from the nurse and must be maintained when working with vulnerable individuals.

... worst possible way—weak kids are made into fools, outcasts, and objects of ridicule. I’ve heard this one a hundred times, and it really drives me crazy because one of the major advantages of differentiation is that it is good and fair—to everyone! When differentiation is working, people know where they stand. You know if you have a strong shot at a big promotion or if you need to be looking for other opportunities, inside or outside the company. Maybe some information is hard to swallow at first, and yes, “bad” news often hurts, but soon enough, like all knowledge, it’s power—in fact, it’s liberating. When you know where you stand, you can control your own destiny, and what is more fair than that? Interestingly, when people raise this criticism with me at speaking engagements, I often ask them a question back. I ask if they ever received grades in school. Naturally, everyone says yes. I then ask, “Did you think getting grades was mean?” “Well, no,” they usually say. Sometimes grades sting, but kids somehow always live through it. And grades have a way of making everything pretty clear. Some people graduate and go on to be astronauts or research scientists or college professors, others become marketing managers or advertising executives, and still others become nurses,chefs,or even professional surfers.Grades,in fact,guide us, telling us something about ourselves that we need to know. — 44 — DIFFERENTIATION So why should we stop getting grades at age twenty-one?

... neighborhoods that are predominantly white. It has been over 50 years since Brown vs. Board of Education. It is sad to read about the state of things today. The final element is the idea of equal access to good education for any child no matter race or social status. Kozol discusses the problems of this area--economic, social, the crime rate--and shows how the schools relate to these concerns. He describes the different classes and the few white faces seen in these classes. Kozol also uses statistics to show how communities are wrongfully denying the fact that their schools are not integrated. Actually it does make you realise that there's a lot to be said for having a (openly acknowledged) class system and an aristocracy Form: The genre of Kozol’s artifact is a news article in Harper’s magazine. The magazine is the oldest general interest monthly in circulation in America. It is a politically driven societal magazine. Kozol wrote this article for the lawmakers to address the issues that needed attention in the school system. The secondary audience would then be the school officials so their eyes can be opened to what is wrong with the system. In this piece Kozol uses many statistics about segregated schools and the financial hardships that they face. He also uses references to historical court cases. The ones specific are those that have made strides to change school guidelines. Kozol brings his personal reflections into the piece to add to the honest and genuine......

...Karissa Rael P 4 Day Care Provider As of right now I am not sure what exact career I want, all I know is that I want to be able to work with kids. I have always loved kids and had a passion to work with them. At one point and time I wanted to become a Pediatrician, and then I thought about becoming a psychologist to counsel young kids with their problems. For me I never really wanted to counsel people because I feel like counseling someone is just telling them more about the problems that they already know they have. I took the time out to interview a day care provider because I felt that maybe having to deal with the same kids all day everyday would help me get to know them and guide them as they got older. The day care provider’s name is Jalisha Jerome. Here are some of the things that I asked her and her responses. Q 1: What is the name of your business? A: The name of my business is Just say Kids. Q 2: How long have you had your business for? A: .Just Say kids has been in operation since May 28, 1995. Q 3: What exactly is your business? A: Just Say Kids is a licensed family child care pre-school program. Q 4 : How did you get into your business ? A: I got into the child care business when I was attending UCLA through a girlfriend of mine. I was in between jobs at the time because of all the schedule changes that occur when you go to college and Tiffany told me that the director was looking for a child care assistant. I interviewed for the position and...

... know your father.’ I wanted to ask, but was too afraid. When I looked up, she was gazing at me a little beadily. ‘And no, Louisa, I am not doing my legs. And, no, he’s not happy. But there are more important things in life.’ ‘What did he say about you coming here today?’ She snorted, and covered it up with a little coughing fit. ‘He didn’t believe I was going to. I told him about it when I brought him up his tea this morning, and he started to laugh, and if I’m honest with you it annoyed me so much I got dressed and I just went.’ My eyes widened. ‘You didn’t tell him?’ ‘I already had told him. He’s been leaving messages on this phone thing all day, the eejit.’ She peered at the screen, then tucked it neatly back into her pocket. I sat and watched her fork another little scone delicately onto her plate. She closed her eyes in pleasure as she took a bite. ‘This is just marvellous.’ I swallowed. ‘Mum, you’re not going to get divorced, are you?’ Her eyes shot open. ‘Divorced? I’m a good Catholic girl, Louisa. We don’t divorce. We just make our men suffer for all eternity!’ I paid the bill, and we disappeared to the Ladies, a cavernous room of walnut-coloured marble and expensive flowers, overseen by a silent attendant who stood by the basins. Mum washed her hands twice, thoroughly, then sniffed the various hand lotions lined up against the sink, pulling faces in the mirror depending on what she liked. ‘I shouldn’t say so, given my opposition to the patriarchy and all, but I do...
