Love a girl who writes because she will be able to recall in detail the dialog between you two, and while it gets you in trouble, it's endearing and sweet at the same time that she remembers. This also forces you to choose your words carefully and you will become an expert in diction.
Love a girl who writes because she understands the complexities of characters, and knows you are more than your successes, failures, winnings, or losses. She loves all the layers of you, all the deep parts and even the shallow. When you are acting like the villain, she will see the goodness in you. When you are the hero, she'll still secretly admire your flaws. All the depths of you become her big adventure.
Love a girl who writes because she will give you the most beautiful settings you've ever seen. She writes about the paradises she imagines, the paradises she has been to, and shares them with you.
Love a girl who writes because sometimes a little silence is welcome.
Love a girl who writes because the post-it on your refrigerator reminding you to buy milk will be original and full of adorable metaphors. And because she is so creative, she'll put the post-it in your shoe rather than on your fridge.
In the fairy tale that is your life together, she will always make you prince charming, and happily ever after is a guarantee.

Love a girl who writes because she understands the value of word choice, and will mean everything she says to you.

She's always looking for the page-turner, which becomes quite exciting for you.
The storyline will never have to end. She will write all the sequels that keep your love breathing. And just so that you remember all the things you love about her, she'll make sure to include prequels too.
You'll never have to worry about dementia, amnesia, or Alzheimer's in your later life. She has already written out your story so that you may remember each other forever.
Buying gifts for her is oh-so-simple because she knows the incredible worth of a pen and paper.
She'll write you emails because the laptop is her friend, but prefers to show you how she cares by painstakingly writing you pages upon pages of letters when you two are separated.
Love a girl who writes because she can take criticism and turn it into wit, disappointment into accomplishment, and sadness into laughter with the wave of her pen.
She will spend her life coming up with a thousand different ways to tell you how incredible you are as she is not fond of repetition. But the words she will wear out is "I love you," because even she knows there is no better substitute for them in the history of writing.
Love a girl who writes because you will be her muse, her inspiration. Without you, she will have writer's block. Or write the greatest tragedy since Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Either way, you are the man she will always write.
Every day she fascinates you with a new genre. Today she is Romance, tomorrow Philosophy.
Love a girl who writes because when the cold winter of life traps you in old age, there will be somebody there to describe for you the summers in Paris, heat in Arabian nights, and tropical forests in South America so that you feel the warmth of adventure as if you were there. And so, in the twilight of your life, you will feel the touch of youth.
And finally, you must love a girl who writes because it is she who will allow you to live forever. With just her pen, she will make sure that you never grow old nor die nor fade, remembered for generations to come. A character in one of her stories, you will be given the gift of immortality.

A Different History and Where I Come from

...we visit we take the memories and experiences that we had there and keep them in our minds and hearts forever. Whereas Bhatt suggests that when we go to a new place we forget who we previously were and change ourselves so that we fit in with the new culture that we are living in. We know this from when she says “And how does it happen/ that after the torture”. This shows the struggle to keep your cultural heritage when you move places. In “A Different History” Bhatt suggests that not only does places change who we are but that we change the places that we go to. She writes “he simply emigrated/ to India” which shows us that you can still be the same person that you were before you moved but now you can get the opportunity to learn new ideas and views on things. In contrast to this Brewster suggests that in some places you will not fit in as it is not the sort of place that you are used to and love to live in. We know this from when she describes the city smell as “smog”. This shows that she feels claustrophobic in the city whereas in her homeland she is used to the “acres of pine woods” which is a metaphor for space to breathe and relax. Elizabeth Brewster writes “Where I come from, people/ carry woods in their minds”. This shows that the people who live there are open-minded and that their homeland has made such a big impact on their lives that they are always thinking about it and will never forget about it. On the contrary Sujata Bhatt writes “the unborn......

Evidence does indicate that the poet W.B. Yeats had a hand in editing and publishing it! GITANJALI 1 Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure. This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again, and fillest it ever with fresh life. This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills and dales, and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new. At the immortal touch of thy hands my little heart loses its limits in joy and gives birth to utterance ineffable. Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass, and still thou pourest, and still there is room to fill. 2 When thou commandest me to sing it seems that my heart would break with pride; and I look to thy face, and tears come to my eyes. All that is harsh and dissonant in my life melts into one sweet harmony---and my adoration spreads wings like a glad bird on its flight across the sea. I know thou takest pleasure in my singing. I know that only as a singer I come before thy presence. I touch by the edge of the far-spreading wing of my song thy feet which I could never aspire to reach. Drunk with the joy of singing I forget myself and call thee friend who art my lord. Page 1 3 I know not how thou singest, my master! I ever listen in silent amazement. The light of thy music illumines the world. The life breath of thy......

What We Eat

...our choice. However, have you ever stopped to think about where the food you buy at the local supermarket comes from? When we think we are eating healthy are we really making the right choices? What about where does the food from the supermarket comes from? How did it get to the supermarket before it made its way into your shopping cart? These are all questions we want to think about when we make food choices. Not only do we want to make right choices but we also want our choices to have a positive outcome on our community. Supermarkets are usually stocked via grocery suppliers or grocery wholesalers. One of my local chain supermarkets, Shaw’s, has different vendors that they use. Their website does not list the different vendors but it has access to their policies and how they choose their vendors. A Consumers International report from July 2012 says that supermarkets buy from suppliers and then sell to consumers. Supermarkets have both retailer and buyer power which means they have influence on both suppliers and consumers. “The more supermarkets buy, the better terms they get. The better terms they get, the more they sell.” (Nicholson, C. & Young, B., 2012). If I were to purchase all the items for my meal, chicken, lemon, rice, mushrooms, greens, almonds, wheat roll, butter, milk, and apple crisp, from Shaw’s Supermarket I would not know where any of my items were being sourced from. I would not know how long the chicken’s been packaged......

Mullholland Dr Analysis

...female (Rita) being driven in a limousine, she realizes that the driver is not going where they need to be going. The limo stops and the driver orders her to get out, and then pulls a gun on her to attempt to murder her. At the same moment the car is hit head on by another car. Rita escapes death and stumbles into an apartment complex where she sneaks into one of the apartments. Later the niece (Betty) of the apartment’s resident comes to stay there, where she finds Rita. It is there where we find out that she has amnesia and does not know who she is. Betty befriends Rita to help her find out who she is. There are other stories that are intertwined as well, there is a scene where there is a man and who appears to be his shrink in a diner. The man tells the other about his dream about a man in the alley that is scary. The doctor takes the man to the spot where they come to the scary individual, and then the man passes out. This scene does not reveal if the man died or not. The way the film was shot, it felt like it was meant to be shot from the earlier times, and not the times when the film was actually shot. There were a lot of extreme close-ups to give a more serious feel to it. Other shots that I felt were used to help the viewer feel more part of the film, was a lot of point of view shots. The view has the chance to see what the character sees, from how they see or feel what is going on. During the opening scene with Rita......

Spiritual Journey In our way of life, the Navajo way of living, we have to know where we come from and where we are going in life. The first time I had ever heard of the Hero Twins story was from a medicine man. Long ago, a woman named changing woman had given birth to twins. During the day, they would play outside of their Hogan, with their mother, changing woman, watching over them to make sure they were safe from the monsters. One day, one of the monsters wanted changing woman for himself because he thought she was childless and went to their home, changing woman quickly hid her twins.

Changing woman lied saying she made them herself, as she made prints with her hand and fingers, saying she is very lonely and wanted to make it look like someone has been coming to visit. As the hero twins got older and wiser, they started asking their mother who their father was. Changing woman kept saying you have no father. Eventually, changing woman finally gave in and told them if you really want to know who your father is, you must travel east to find your......

...those items. What we usually don’t do, is think about where those items come from. Some of the items may come from here in the United States and some may come from other counties. There could be good things and not so good things come from items produced inside and outside of the United States. One of the good things is that the items that are produced and used in the U.S. help our struggling economy. An example of this would be milk that is produced from cows and collected at a farm and brought to a pasteurization plant where it is processed. Since milk spoils so quickly it’s usually sent to a plant that is fairly close to the farm. They test the milk for antibiotics and then it’s pumped into holding tanks and processed in 24 to 72 hours of the time it gets to the plant. It is kept under 45 degrees from the time it gets into the transportation truck until the time it’s processed. After it’s processed it is put in cartons and taken to the store still being kept below 45 degrees. Milk is never shipped to other countries because of the fact it needs to be kept refrigerated. (Milk Processing, 2007) One of the not so good things about products produced in other countries is that they may have to add preservatives to food in order to transport them to other countries and those preservatives may lead to obesity. They have to pick fruits and vegetables even before they are ripe to add the preservatives to prevent them from spoiling. Some of the...

Family so many ways. When I asked my friends what family is, I received four different answers. The first one said “Family is a group of individuals who are connected by blood who love each other.” My next friend replied “family is where you can be yourself, enjoy life and be embraced and not judged by society.” My third friend claimed “A family is a unit of people that range from young and old. It might consist of a couple; a mother, father and children; a single parent and child; grandparent and grandchildren; a sibling group; a circle of friends; or however that family defines itself.” My response to my own question was “Families are the foundation of society. It's where we come into the world, are nurtured and given the tools to go out into the world, capable and healthy but also our Family is a social unit consisting of guardians and the children they raise.” When the idea of family comes about, what exactly comes to mind? Do you think of the ones that you live with? Do you think of the ones who made you the person you are today? Or do you just think about what makes your family different? Well when it comes to the notion of family as a whole. All of these things plus more come into play. I will introduce you to my family and show you what the Williams/Paris family is all about.

Strategic Plan Part 2 Swott Analysis a new business, a craft museum for kids; a place where kids can come and find their creative side, while being taught to learn how to connect and master the arts. We value creativity and encourage kids to express themselves in a way never before done. People will care about my organization because it offers a chance to enhance a side of children that is not always encouraged or have the opportunity to experience. We will be a small company starting out. We offer payment plans, as well as package deals for families of all budgets. The three important services we offer every client, is to work with each child individually, and in group setting with teachers who will bring out the child’s creative side, no child shall ever be turned away due to non-payment, and we teach each child to learn how to express themselves fully through art, and their creative side. My organization will be different from the competition because we are not a babysitting drop off center for parents; we are not a school of fine arts, nor are we a therapist center, My main goal is to see the silly, creative, and goofy side of kids come out and they are able to express those feelings on papers, on the walls, and on the furniture!

The Multiple Meanings of Nationality

...When it comes to nationality, I feel as though there are a few definitions for this term. There are three big variations of this term in my opinion. One is the literal meaning which is basically where you come from or where your native country is. Another one is your newly adopted nationality or the one I am most closely associated with, which in my case is being an American although it isn’t my country of origin. Finally the third one is a smaller subset similar to a community that defines you more so than your newly adopted nationality. The literal definition of nationality basically states that I am Indian and come from Mumbai, India but this doesn’t say anything about me personally or reveal anything about how I express or show my “nationality”. My newly adopted nationality is me being an American because I was born in America and I being raised to follow a certain American standard. This definition of nationality is closer to my own definition of the phrase. My personal definition is similar to that of Benedict Anderson’s where nationality is also closely linked with community and that almost shapes who you are. When someone asks me what my nationality is, the answer is never so simple as just “Indian”. My answer is normally, “Well, I am Indian, but I was born in America… but I am a very typical New Yorker.” After this short explanation someone’s follow up question is usually, “Where are you from in New York?” and then there is another short explanation of how I lived......

Not a Money Issue

...bestower. Gives means: to present voluntarily and without expecting compensation; bestow The Bible mentions money over 800 times, I know people get squeamish when you mention money in the church because they see so many that are greedy and so many that have been taking advantage of but it is not ok for believer to shy away from a subject because of false teaching that is the reason to address it, to call it out that are not ignorant but we are going back to the word if there is a doubt a question a cause for concern it is time for us to take these things back to God. The world is supposed to come to the church not the other way around but so many in the church are beat down, broke and discouraged. 2 Corinthians 9 New International Version (NIV) 9 There is no need for me to write to you about this service to the Lord’s people. 2 For I know your eagerness to help, and I have been boasting about it to the Macedonians, telling them that since last year you in Achaia were ready to give; and your enthusiasm has stirred most of them to action. 3 But I am sending the brothers in order that our boasting about you in this matter should not prove hollow, but that you may be ready, as I said you would be. 4 For if any Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we—not to say anything about you—would be ashamed of having been so confident. 5 So I thought it necessary to urge the brothers to visit you in advance and finish the arrangements for the generous gift you had......

...him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and save his servant. When they came to Jesus, they begged him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy for you to do this for him, for he loves our nation, and he built our synagogue for us." Jesus went with them. When he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, "Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I am not worthy for you to come under my roof. Therefore I didn’t even think myself worthy to come to you; but say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man placed under authority, having under myself soldiers. I tell this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it." When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude who followed him, "I tell you, I have not found such great faith, no, not in Israel." Those who were sent, returning to the house, found that the servant who had been sick was well. The Man Born Blind John 9:1-12 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.

Week 5 Individual Personal Reflection Paper

...HUM114 Critical thinking is when you stop to analyze any problem or situations and come up with ideas on how you can solve them critically; it is also the ability to use reasoning and logic to unfamiliar ideas and situations. Critical thinking is a form of behavior we can enforce in every moment we need to analyze a certain perspective, situation, problems, and issues. The three most significant things that I have learned about critical thinking during this course are how to identify if it is a problem or an issue, the steps to critically analyze a situation, and finally I learned how to listen, read, and view critically. Learning to identify if a situation is a problem or an issue is imperative. The reason is because they have different approaches to each one. If a situation is a problem, people can all agree that is a problem but may have different ways of mindset when it comes to finding the solution. There may be ideas for solutions that not everybody agrees with, but everybody will agree there is a problem. If the situation is an issue, people will not all agree there may be an issue. Everyone will have their own opinion on the situation to where some may think there is an issue, others may think there is no issue and also others may not agree on how to solve the issue. When you are able to identify if it is an issue or a problem, you can start thinking critically on how to come up with ideas and solutions to solve this problem and any issues that may......
