Finding Forrester William is one of the main characters in Finding Forrester, an old, white male, novelist, makes a friendship with, and helps, a black sixteen boy who is very talented in basketball, literature, and writing, Jamal Wallace. William was known for his famous novel The Avalon, fifty years earlier. There were many bad reviews about the novel, and the death of his parents and brother put him into a long depression. He decided to isolate himself from the public and was never heard from again. There were very many events that happened and the development of a friendship with Jamal, would give William a new perspective on life. In the movie, William would have never confronted his fears or rejoining the world if it weren’t for Jamal. A friendship with Jamal led to many events that brought change with William Forrester. Having someone to talk to, realizing he could trust someone, the importance of friendship, seeing life in a new way, and standing up for what he believes in, were all factors that resulted in his growth and would not have came out with this friendship. Jamal’s company came as a bit of surprise, but William is a smart man and knew that by editing those notes, Jamal would be back.

Towards the end of the movie Jamal was having a problem at school, William went out of his apartment to go help Jamal. Remember William was isolated from others but he overcame his fear for Jamal, William…
I recently saw a cartoon image of a nurse looking a few pages into an enormous book titled All the Things You Didn’t Learn in Nursing School Vol. 1. I indeed chuckled and absolutely related to the image. It is probably a combination of becoming an adult, graduating from school and starting a career as well as being a nurse that has caused me to learn so much in the last three years. As I have grown older I have really begun to appreciate education and understand its importance. I…
life because I want nothing but the best for my future. I know continuing on this path toward the medical field will not be easy but I am motivated to push though all the years it takes to get it done.
I learned that having your own identity and finding yourself is an important thing in life because it defines you as person from the rest of the world. No one can tell you who you are; you have to learn through your own experiences to figure it out. I also believe if you do not find your own identity…
Point of view: the story a separate peace is told in fp pov by gene forrester. Gene tell his story in retrospect while visiting his former boarding school in new Hampshire. We the readers are led to many point of view confusions, as we can never be sure which emotions belong to teenager gene and adult gene telling the story. The narrator is unreliable because we don’t know if gene is lying or capable of telling the truth after all these years.
Exposition: Gene and Phineas are best friends…
The Danger in Finding Meaning
“Those who read the symbol do so at their peril” –Oscar Wilde
Finding a piece of art that excels all others is finding a piece of one’s own soul by accident. Why is it that this piece stood out above all others? Why is it that this piece intrigued thy mind? Why is this piece creating a calamity in the mind? Why is this piece so eccentric? These questions arose with the piece I chose. As I looked around the room I could not find anything that gave me an awe feeling;…
Finding Macromolecules in Food
This experiment was conducted in order to find the presence of a certain macromolecule in a food sample. This was done by using different reagents that would indicate a certain macromolecule present by a color change. The data presented within this lab shows that each reagent gave a color change to a solution, showing whether or not the macromolecule was present in the food item. Each result depended on the actual nutritional…
movies that you could compare and contrast to, but the one I am going to choose will be “Finding Nemo.” “Finding Nemo” is a movie where Nemo, the main character, goes from a little clownfish to someone on a big adventure while going through different obstacles along the way. I will be discussing the similarities and differences between “Finding Nemo” and “The Other Side of the Sky” by Farah Ahmedi.
In “Finding Nemo,” Nemo is on his way to fish school but gets distracted from a boat that he and his…
Report on findings of Risk Assessment.
In my opinion the “clean if seen” control is working. Everyone is responsible for not only their own work area but if they see a wet surface no matter what it may be then I think they should wipe/mop it up to prevent not only slipping and an accident but to also protect the under floor sockets. If measures were not in place for this then there could be a serious accident by way of slipping or a fatal electrical accident.

Nemo is Not the Only Thing Marlin Found
Finding Nemo apart from all of the other Pixar movies is that within the first 5
minutes of the movie they have killed off almost an entire family. The degree of difficulty of this
film is extreme and given to the rookie director, Andrew Stanton, at the same time makes it seem
like they were trying to haze the him. To begin, it’s a movie about fish…
