Few objects spark such memories as does my old pillow. When most people see a pillow, they just think of sleep, but my pillow is different. My pillow has been with me since early childhood. That consistent comforter and friend has supported me through thick and thin. That pillow has patiently endured my nightmares and dreams for years. Whether I was in bed with a sickness or running after my little brother in a pillow fight battle, that familiar sack of cotton has been reliable. Every time I lay my head down on my old pillow, a torrential rain of memories floods my mind. My pillow’s name is Pillow. She has several defining features. She is not as fluffy as some of her newer more innovative counterparts. Also, she is not especially flashy in style. She does not match my curtains or add flair to the room. Instead, she is quite ordinary in appearance. She is an average size— nearly equivalent to the size of the back rest on an office chair. However, her normal, slightly even subpar features do not strike a negative connotation in my eyes. On the contrary, Pillow’s commonplace attributes are terrifically charming. She is unexceptional and undistinguished. She is usual at best. Perhaps, though, this is what makes her so enchanting. Her gentle and antiqued baby blue covering magically constitutes an unmistakable aura of friendliness that is inviting and relatable. Pillow has a middle class appearance, but she is sincere and genuine. Pillow reminds me of numerous events and feelings in my life. We have laughed and cried together. We have countless memories to reminisce upon. Some of these memories are bad. I vividly recall crying with Pillow for hours during my childhood in order to mourn the loss of a beloved pet. During difficult times, Pillow seemed to take on somewhat of a motherly role whereas to comfort me in the midst of stress and/or sorrow. Pillow has also gotten me in trouble on multiple occasions throughout my life. I have…
My Sweet Serenity
Everything about the ocean makes me smile. The energy of all the climate uncertainties working in unison, all of the organisms living together, and even the beautifulness of it all puts a smile on my face. I have always loved the ocean since the first vacation I can remember. I remember standing on the balcony overlooking the ocean. There was never a moment where the wind wasn’t blowing if only just a slight breeze. The sun was setting across the water when I spotted a pod of…

you’re thinking that the Mayan doomsday people sat around laughing and drinking sweet hot chocolate, well… it’s more likely they’d be sitting around drinking a bitter, foamy cocoa flavored beer, disgusting right.
How chocolate came to be the popular sweet item we taste today was when it was mixed with several ingredients early European chocolate makers found it was pretty sweet and thought it could be introduced in a sweet form. One other reason cocoa beans were easy to grow and transport. The day…

Dreams are like a world full of mysteries and fascinations, where there is very little reality or none at all. Dreams are made out of a series out thoughts, images, and emotions that happen in a person’s mind while they are sleeping. 90% of your brain requires to be active in order for you to be able to dream. According to psychologist Wiseman there is people who can actually dream the future, it might not be exactly as they dreamt about…
I like "dropout" as an addition to the American Dream language because it's brief and it's clear. What I don't like is that we use it almost entirely as a dirty word.
We only apply it to people under twenty-one. Yet an adult who spends his days and nights watching mindless TV programs is more of a drop out than an eighteen-year-old who quits college, with its frequentl mindless courses, to become, say, a VISTA volunteer. For the young, dropping out is often a way of dropping in.
To hold this…
Running Head: DREAMS
State Fair Community College
Dreams can range from normal and ordinary, to overly surreal and bizarre. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the dreamer, with the exception of lucid dreaming, where the dreamer is aware. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. Dreams can, at times, make a creative thought occur to a person or be a sense of inspiration…

Understand Your Dreams

I can’t seem to see my boyfriend in sight, and can’t help but think, ‘whose baby?’ Finally, I find the baby. She stops crying immediately after she sees me, and smiles and calls me ‘mama’ She’s so adorable with dark, thick, curly, black hair…
