People feel like outsiders all the time. Most people’s situations are different. Mine is a lot like everyone else’s though. Back when I was a sophomore in high school I decided that I didn’t like the school I went to. Bishop Carroll didn’t feel like the place I wanted to be. After a lot of thinking I decided I wasn’t going to go to school there anymore. It was sophomore year at Bishop Carroll and I wasn’t having a very good time. Your last name was all that mattered there. If you had the name you could get away with anything. And by having the right name I meant being one of those people that gave a lot of money to the school and church. After getting in a little bit of trouble and always getting put behind people with the “right name” I decided it was time to change schools. Sophomore year was over and I decided to go to Eisenhower High School. It was the first year that the school had been open. I was the first junior class. I figured this would be a lot better because everyone would be new to the school and not know their way around. But I was wrong. Everyone there’re was already friends. Everyone there had been going to school with each other since kindergarten and I was the only one that no one knew. This was hard because everyone else would have someone to talk to in class and I didn’t know anyone so I had to start all over making new friends and finding a new group of people to hang out with. Everyone was going to all the football games together and I didn’t go

Structuring an essay in Third Person Narrative is the preferred standard of academic writing, as…
study of games through their form and adherence to genre conventions, and narratology, or the examination of narratives in the medium. The author argues that scholars have had difficulty analyzing games in the past because they were trying to use techniques traditionally applied to literature or film studies. She suggests that games are a hybrid medium that has specific form and narrative elements that impact people’s emotions and processes differently than traditional media. She discusses the commentary…
