This would have never crossed my mind; but if one day I woke up and all the sudden I am a girl, I would freak the crap out! For starters, I would think that I am still sleeping and it’s just a dream. However, after a few minutes I would realize that it’s not a dream and that I became a girl overnight. After getting over the fact that I am now a girl, I would get up and check myself out to “see what I’m working with”. Then I would mentally prepare myself to getting hit on by every guy, because mentally I’m still a guy but physically I’m a women.
A couple benefits of being a girl however are ladies first, emotional blackmail, and makeup and dressing. Ladies first, every one of us must have heard of this phrase -” ladies first”. Being a girl or a woman we often enjoy this particularly special right when standing in a queue or waiting in a crowded train or bus for a vacant seat. This is a fully known point that the vacant seat must be given to a lady first If there is any. And If unfortunately any idiot (obviously a man) doesn’t follow the acclaimed rule then he must get ready to be embarrassed by the co-travelers. Emotional blackmail, this is again something can only be done If you are a girl. Being in a relationship sometimes there are few demands that we want to be fulfilled by our partners at any cost, whether they want to or not. Trust me this emotional blackmailing is the strongest weapon of girls to get that demand fulfilled. We can cry and can give some emotional reasons on our part and the next party (the boy) has to surrender. Make up and dressing, unlike boys we can enhance our natural beauty by applying a little make-up and can conceal our zits and other minute skin disorders by some small trick. I can bet no boy can look as beautiful as much as a girl looks in a girl’s dress whereas…...

Girl

...The relationship between the girl and the mother is controlling, poor bonding, and one sided. Due to the mother being from Jamaica her traditions was instilled in her from her parents, so she attempts to instill those same traditions to her daughter. But, she fails to realize that what was foster in her is different by the time period her daughter lives her life. The girl seem to be annoyed with all the “you must do this, and you must act like this, and don’t sing Calypso in church better yet not on Sunday’s at all” rules of how a Jamaican girl should conduct herself in order to have a good reputation and name around the community. Indeed, the main influences that enforce her mother strict rules are her lower proletarian class structure identity. Its bad enough they are poor (father having to wear khaki jeans for work, suggesting he works in a place with little hierarchy and mobility), but being poor with no class is disgraceful towards their reputation. This mother just cares for her daughter and wants the best for her for when she grows up. This particular situation I can relate to because my mother is from Haiti and raised me in a similar way the mother in the story is trying to raise her daughter. Twenty years old now and I finally realized what my mother was trying to instill in me. She wasn’t trying to be the strictest mother out of all Haitian mothers, but didn’t want me to make the same mistakes that she had made in her country and rather for me to seek my own......

Girl

...​Throughout time and throughout the world women have always been viewed differently by society. In many cultures, women have destined roles to fulfill and repercussions to bear if she cannot achieve being that ideal woman. The short story “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid, consists of an extremely long, single sentence of advice a mother imposes on her young daughter. Believing her daughter is already at risk of an adolescent’s promiscuity, she cautions and reprimands her daughter in order for her to grow up with the appropriate reputation that is expected of her as a woman. With examples of dos and don’ts her mother professes, the mother sends a clear message of what the young girl’s domestic knowledge should encompass. Even though the young girl has not yet reached adolescence, her mother is deeply concerned with her negative behavior and the reputation that she might bring upon herself. ​Being from the island of Antigua and from a poor, small community, it seems as though a woman’s respectability is greatly determined by her reputation. Knowing from experience and even from past generations, the young girl’s mother knows that her daughter must stay far from her adolescent promiscuous instinct and conceal any sort of sexuality in order to gain respect from her community. Throughout the short story her mother emphasizes that her daughter should not become a slut in any manner. She cautions her not to walk like a slut and demonstrates how to hem her dress, which will prevent her...

How to Pick Up a Girl

...You can pick up women in all types of scenarios in bars, clubs, during the day, online, and in any social event. Even with all these ways there is still quite a few methods that hold true when trying to pick up girls in any situation. This report will go through the basics of these methods so you will know just how to pick up ladies! Opening You can either open a lady directly or indirectly, each have their own unique purposes. Direct is going up to a lady and directly telling her that you are interested. E.g, Hello I just had to come meet you because you're stunning. When being direct you are stating that you are interested in her and if she accepts this and starts talking to you, you are well in. Indirect is when you ask a lady a question. For example, Who do you think lies more men or girls? Then let her know why you are asking her this null my friend thinks guys, but I'm 100% sure its girls'. This opening will start up more conversations due to the fact you are not hitting on her, thus your not a threat. Having said that null could end up in the friend zone I prefer direct in most cases as it is a lot more efficient, as you find out the truth about where the interaction is going a lot faster. Make yourself stand out from the crowd Since she is now opened up, we need to prove we are not like the regular men who open her, with all the same boring questions e.g., what do you do? Null. Now I can't stress this enough, avoid these questions at all cost in the...

What I Remember Most

...We all can think of many times in our lives where we just felt good to be in such a place, for me it was my grandmother’s house. My grandmother’s house has a very special place in my heart. I lived with my grandmother for many years when I was little. There has never been a place where I had a feeling of such joy and happiness. What a wonderful feeling of joy and peace waking up in my Grandmother’s home, that grew small as I grew big. The humble white house with black trimming that my great great grandfather built had a tall chimney and a broke down picket fence that my brother and I loved to run and jump over in the small town of Mound Bayou Mississippi. From the squeaky front porch swing you could see all the way down the street. Looking to the left you could see my grandmother’s country store, and to the right there was a field with grass as tall as the days were long that my friends and I loved to play hide-n-seek in. Knowing if I lay in bed long enough I would soon hear my grandmother's heavy feet rushing down the hall opening the back porch door to go hang clothes that she had just finished hand washing. The door made a squeal, almost a wine then a slam! I was sure the door was responsible for waking me up every morning in that house. Her feet would almost stomp as she rushed back to the kitchen to prepare breakfast for my brother and I before school. I would lay there and say to myself that 5 a.m. was too early for anybody to get up and do anything...

What I Need

...Marriage? I have not even thought about the concept, and here I am being told that I am supposed to meet my future husband in a mere couple of hours? What is a young girl to think? Could he be my true love, or can others not accommodate true love that is not there own? This has been brought to me so suddenly. Is there someone else out there, someone who I will truly love? Why has such conflict come upon me? Should I agree to marry him, or wait for someone who may never come? Now it seems almost inevitable that I will be engaged to Paris, an arrangement of love, and one that I may not agree with. But there is nothing I can do, I would never dream of defying what parents think is best for me, and for another boy that may never come. For now, I feel my love has been assigned to Paris. I must go to the party, where I am to meet my supposed true love and dance the night away. (After the party) Tonight I have found true love. Not arranged or forced, but love at first sight. Romeo. I name I will remember forever. He was so perfect. But, like any other good match, it will never work. For he is a Montague and I am a Capulet. Two extreme differences, ones so extreme, we may never be together unless our love is secret. Yet another conflict brought about into my life. My love has been given to a Montague, because of this our love for each other may never be accepted. There are now two men, one who I love truly, and one who I should rightfully love. Should I defy my parents, go......

I Am What I Am

...“I Am What I AM” is a musical which was on shown in January in Sheung Wan Civic Centre. The story of the musical is actually a real-life story adapted from a Singapore transgender person, Abigail, about making a tough decision of being loyal to her true gender. Abigail’s frustration of whether to take the Sex Reassignment Surgery (“SRS” for short) or not was exquisitely presented in the musical, so as to communicate with the audience and encourage them to have an in-depth review about the related issue. Why Abigail hopes to be a female rather than a male? To uncover the underlying reasons, let’s start with knowing more about her life in early stage. Being born as a boy, Abigail felt that he was a girl deeply inside his mind. Liked other normal little girls, he loved playing Barbie dolls and doll’s houses. Presenting girls’ characteristics in his childhood gave him a derogatory nickname, “Girlish Boy”, which was frequently called by his classmates in primary school. Trying to conceal his female mind, Abigail always made himself looks like stronger, self-reliant through behaviors, thoughts but seems that was not successful. His classmates continued to laugh at him with offensive languages. When he grew up, he felt much more natural and comfortable to play with girls while sensed shy to play with boys. In Singapore, boys who aged 18 had to serve their duty in military. During that period, Abigail took baths in late evening after all the other soldiers took their baths. It...

What I Learned

... strategy and the action taken, or to identify if there are different perceptions of the same strategy within a company. This is extremely relevant when dealing with multinational companies where the structure is complex and there is room for error and risk of misunderstanding with the whole team you create. I can now identify where action needs to be taken, and then use them to make the whole business work. By seeing links between consequences, I saw different choices had different consequences and learned to look at trade-offs, pros and cons to determine what is the best choice is, and identify what is lost and what is gained in making one decision over another. As we got into strategic marketing, I realize it is not your typical marketing strategy of what I have learned in my prior marketing class, but more understanding the different markets in a broader perspective. International and multinational companies must understand the complexity of the markets which they exist. A market is not just a country or audience; it can be defined by borders, cultures, age and more. This shows the challenge of how to approach a segment that is not in one location. I learned to see the complexity of a market in an international context which is much bigger than a local market. There are also political issues to address, socio-economic issues which have a lot more risk involved that you should be considered when opening a multinational business. I also have a clear understanding of what......

...All the way to the top: Tom Brady Ubaldo Trevizo English 104 Janett Johnson November 27, 2013 Abstract The research topic I did is how Tom Brady made it to the top. Tom Brady has been an inspirational figure. What has he done in his life? Truly, his background has made him who he is. The things that Tom Brady has done have shaped him as well made him gain a career. These reasons have shaped him from his choices to his failure. Tom Brady is known to be one of the greatest quarterbacks in the National Football League which we know as NFL. Tom Brady, however, didn’t get this way just by taking the easy road. His journey hasn’t been a walk in the park. I found out a lot of new things about this person that inspire me to never giving up. He truly has changed my life. Talk about an inspirational figure. Tom Brady is one of the greatest Quarterbacks in our time, but he is more than just a player. Tom Brady is also a son, a husband, and a lovely father. A quarterback is the leader of the offense. The quarterback leads his team on the field to score and to win games. A quote that stands out to me that Brady said is, “To often in life, something happens and we blame other people for us not being happy or satisfied or fulfilled. So the point is, we all have choices, and we make the choice to accept people or situations or to not accept situations. (Tom Brady Quotes, n.d.)

.... Always use lubrication and great care when performing tapping operations. For load-bearing threads, always verify that the threads, fasteners, and materials are adequate for the job. The tap should be perpendicular to the work piece. Give details of how to use these tools correctly? To use a tap, choose the size that is appropriate for the size of the bolt or the hole you want to thread. Place the tap into the special wrench and tighten it in. Then, place the cutting end of the tap over the hole and turn. Use cutting oil to lubricate the tap. As with the die, once the tap is started, make a slight reverse turn every now and then and make sure, your piece is secured in the vice correctly - lateral movement may cause tap breakage or poor quality threads. What did you use these tools for and what were you able to achieve by completing this task? I have used this tool to make a screw thread on top of my upper and lower stay rod so I could attach the my two side plates on top. I firstly used the drill press to make a hole of the correct diameter on top of the upper and lower stay rode and then I used the tap to form the internal thread in the hole. What servicing and repairs are needed with regard to this tool? Use good lubrication in order to prevent built up edge and chip blockage and back it out after every few turns, cleaning the chips of metal off the tap and lubricating it again. If the tapping effort ever suddenly increases, back out the tap and clean the......

What Is Up ?

...Effectiveness of Antacid Tablets by Trisha Dwivdi, 2002 Abstract The purpose of this project was to figure out if antacid tablets are effective in neutralizing the human stomach. Effective was defined to mean that the tablet did not neutralize too much of the solution or too little of the solution compared to other brands. I titrated a solution that had a pH that was similar to the human stomach and tested four brands of popular antacid tablets. The four brands were Pepcid AC®, Zantac 75®, Rolaids®, and Alka Seltzer®. Rolaids® was the only brand that did not neutralize the solution. The other three antacid tablets did work and I decided that antacid tablets are effective in neutralizing the human stomach since they did not neutralize all of the stomach solution or they did not just neutralize a small amount of it. This experiment was all relative to the other tablets, because I had no background information on what defines an antacid tablet to be effective so I had to base it on the results of the other tablets. Rolaids® took an irregular amount of stomach solution compared to the other tablets to neutralize, so I based my results on this observation. Introduction The purpose of doing this project was to figure out if antacid tablets work effectively since there are many tablets out there on the market. I predicted that the antacid tablets will neutralize the stomach solution I made and therefore be effective. I worked in the Breck School Science Lab...

What "Makes Up" Makeup

...What “Makes Up” Makeup: A Short History of Cosmetics At the start of every morning, my mother wakes up an hour earlier than necessary to “put on her face.” As a kid, I never understood what she was doing and was constantly annoyed that it would take her extremely long to get ready to go somewhere that was barely down the street. Why was she putting makeup on to go grocery shopping? To my grandma’s house? “Because I like to, Shyla,” was the only answer I ever got. But being that young, makeup was something you only wore on special days: on Halloween, to disguise yourself as someone else or a wedding, to be pretty. My mom wearing it daily confused me. As a woman, contradictions are shot at you like bullets. “Be natural, but don’t you dare have any blemishes, pimples, scars or hair anywhere that isn’t your head.” “A girl wearing absolutely no makeup, bare faced and natural isn’t enough, but a girl wearing heavy eyeshadow and face makeup is slutty.” Everything we do is somehow scrutinized through the eyes of what a man would or wouldn’t like. We have an endless list of standards we must live up to, all the while making sure to be ourselves, because guys don’t like fake girls. Some view makeup as a weapon of destruction, like it’s lying to the world, making people appear to be flawless models with it, but completely different person without it. All those years of watching my mom layer on product after product, wondering what the point of all of it was, I realized...
