It was then, that I started to doubt if it was the right thing to do. I was getting everything I dreamed of from the perfect guy and the perfect house and eventually a perfect family. But I had this feeling that this might all be a dream. Something just isn’t right, but then I thought to myself “come on Anna, pull it together. You’re just getting cold feet. You’ve been waiting for this day all your life.” All I had to do was go through those doors, walk down that isle and say … I DO. I thought back to the day I met Michael, He seemed to know how to take care of everything, while I knew nothing. Plus he was outgoing and strong, which I admired. We fell in love on the first date. That is when I imagined my life with him, a loving husband who worked and came home to me and the kids and sat and ate dinner and they would talk about how school went and how his day was at work, as a detective. That is when I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. So, as those doors flew open and I saw him, all my doubts went away and we were happily married. A year later, we were settled into our house and I had my first daughter, Tessa. It was as I imagined it until, a few months later when I found out that Michael has been cheating on me. That night I put Tessa to sleep and waited for him to come home. As I waited and waited I was starting to fall asleep but, then I heard the car coming in the driveway. As Michael walked in he saw me and just stood there confused. “Honey, why are you still up its ...” I cut him off mid-sentence and asked him “who is she, Michael? The woman that you’ve been cheating on me while I take of Tessa day and night and I’ve been thinking oh poor Michael has been working day and night, he must be tired. Except you weren’t at work all those days, you were with that woman weren’t you?” I tried to keep my voice calm and low so I wouldn’t wake up Tessa, but the anger was just bursting out of me. He started to explain himself to me, which it meant nothing to him but I didn’t believe a word he said. In that moment four words came out of my…

by Baz Luhrmann portrays these positive and negative experiences by exploring the
consequences of Scott Hasting’s individualism. The film explores how the concept of
belonging can be greatened or weakened by an individuals’ interaction…

How To Make A Change
I am 35 years old, a veteran and I hate the direction the United States of America is going in. Just maybe I am naïve, maybe the government has always been puppets to the rich, but it seems in today’s world the politicians don’t even try to hide it. When George Bush Jr. and company stole the state of Florida and the 2000 election right in front of the eyes of America and got away with it everything…
It Past It's Limits?
With many traditions that Umuofia has, the Week of Peace must be the most important. Everyone has to depend on a god to grow crops every season for the village to harvest. Their religion is supersticious yet very faithful. Chinua Achebe's "Thing's Fall Apart" is about gentrification, traditions, and culture within a community, but in this case, a village.
Okonkwo is know very well because of his great titles, strength and the small capacity that his villaeg has. Being said that…
Should there be a limit to Fakery?
Have you noticed the evolution of a new species of human beings, who appear to closely resemble living, breathing wotsits! This species can be recognised by their distinctive skin tones on the orange spectrum of colour. It is inconceivable and in fact appalling that these individuals feel compelled to disguise themselves in this manner.
The desire to appear glamorous can make slaves of us all. Cosmetics, lotions and potions can sometimes detract from the inherent…
