Analysis Of I Just Wanna Be Average By Mike Rose
We go to school day after day and see the same things happening. We never have the time to
question these things or to even stop and take a second to wonder, is this the right way to handle this
or is this what I am supposed to be doing with my life. From the moment we walk through those
school doors until we leave at the end of the day there is nothing but competition. There are many
different kinds of competition, whether it is in a sport for school or for who has the best academic
scores. A second in the day does not go by where there are not two students competing for the
winning spot. In Mike Rose, "I Just Wanna Be Average" we are able to see that there is no self–
motivation for Rose when he realizes his test scores have been mixed up ... Show more content on

Many people believe that we need to have our children competing to be the best of the best when
they are young. Therefore, giving them a head start on a great future. In Rose he says, "Students will
float to the mark you set." (Rose 154) This means that if we set the mark at college, there are kids
that will compete to be the best out of their class and will strive to become the most successful.
Although we do not realize this, but by setting that mark it is giving the slackers something to aim
for even though they never seem to compete for anything. This means that by having an
environment that is willing to push even the slackers in school shows that they to can have
something to compete for in the future. The environment of students plays an important role in
helping students compete to become better. We tend to see better scores from students in private
schools rather than students in public schools, this is because students are pushed harder in private
schools and are competing to be the best because they know that if they start to fall behind they will
be left in the dust. These students become the slackers. Problems start to form when the parents of
the slackers start to shelter them and say that competing is not that important. Young adults are
smart and they see this as an opportunity to use their parents. When reading Katherine S. Newman,
"The Accordion Family: Boomerang Kids, Anxious Parents, and the Private Toll of Global
Competition" we find it interesting when she brings up the topic on how "Adult children are
migrating home or refraining from leaving in the first place, and there they stay for many years
longer." (Newman 91) With this being said we can right away notice that there is no motivation to
become better or to even compete in the work for to be able to be living on their

Coworkers
Coworkers. These are the people that the majority of us have to deal with by the time we reach the
college level. Some can be a joy to work with, while others may not be as easy going. As an
employee, at my current job, I've had good and bad experience with my fellow coworkers, but over
the course of time I've learned how to handle this type of situation. At any job you will have to know
how to deal with different types of coworkers. To my understanding coworkers can be classified into
three major groups: slackers, overachievers, and neutral co–workers. The slacker is the one who is
unwilling to work or use energy and probably the worst one to work with. These sluggish co–
workers show up to work five to ten minutes late and have the nerve ... Show more content on

This person is constantly busy at work and rarely takes a moment to relax. He or she is always
trying to impress the manager and tries to keep themselves occupied throughout their whole shift.
They usually only talk when customers are approching, but even then they tend to come off as being
snobbish. They are depicted to be bossy and love to take charge, but when they do something wrong
they wont hesitiate to throw you under the bus to save themselves. For example, during one of my
many shifts I had to work with one of my least favorite co–worker, Sabrina. That afternoon we
agreed to split the several task assigned to us in half so we would finish faster. During the time we
had to complete these task, we also had to be at the register attending customers as they approched
us. As the day progressed I have taken notice that all the items I have stocked up was rearranged, but
everytime I would reposition the item, it would change positions again or it would be relocated to
another section of the store. I soon found out that my co–worker was not just finishing her task but
changing what she believed was wrong with my display. Of course, I let this type of situation slide a
little because everyone knows how she is, however, soon after our manager approached us, and
politely asked who was the one that stocked up the items. Sabrina shot up and proudly announced
that she did it all by herself, which obviously was not true, and goes to show that everything she had
stocked up was not in the correct shelves. Although it was her mistake and I had nothing to do with
it, she tried dragging me down with her to save herself. In addition, our other fellow co–worker,
Dora, never talked to anyone else except for the customers, but she was not as nice and polite as
everyone may have thought. She acted like she knew it all and would try to consult the customers

Slacker By Nathan Rabin Summary
Many may view a "slacker" as one who will procrastinate on everything meaningful, one who is
ignorant, lazy, incompetent, or even uneducated. Nathan Rabin argues statistically that men ranging
from their late teens to late 20s happen to be in the prime time when "you're too young to realize
your limitations, or even to know that limitations exist" (Rabin 482). The author argues that no man
should have a "limit" but to realize our potential as human beings as a whole to perceive red lights
from green lights, and to keep going when someone else said STOP. This essay influences its
readers to believe Rabin's assertion that being a so called "slacker" is not so bad through its
anecdotal evidence, appealing to the opposition, and societal values. Nathan Rabin affectively uses
anecdotal evidence to make readers understand what he means when he says that no man should be
declared a slacker because he's "dressed in a baggy ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Men are not created with the same mind–set nor the same motives as one another, but we all had the
same thought of becoming a billionaire at age 20. The author mentions Mr. Zuckerberg as "a 26–
year–old scruffily dressed Jewish kid who started a cultural revolution in his dorm room and
inspired a movie that may just win an Oscar for best picture"(Rabin 482). Also another way he
effectively appeals to the opposition by the opinion of other people, because no one in their right
minds would guess a person who dresses in their pajamas in the middle of broad day could be the
next 26–year–old billionaire. But that's the flaws of judging a book by its cover. One can say that
Mr. Zuckerberg had a clarity to be successful, there's a saying in which goes for everyone who is
striving to be successful "If you don't help build your own dream, someone else would hire you to
build theirs". Not all men are like Mr. Zuckerberg, but we sure can be inspired to be like

Me and You and Memento and Fargo by J.J. Murphy
Structure in any form of narrative is vital, whether it be in films, books, theatre, etc. It is a frame for
a story to work within. While there is a traditional method and formula to structuring a film
narrative, filmmakers all over the world have experimented with breaking the norm and trying new
ways to structure a film. It tested the viewer's notion of what structure is and how a narrative can be
told. It was also new and something that audiences were not used to. Even now, a film that moves
too far away from the traditional three–act–structure, is highly experimental and usually only seen in
independent or student films. In this essay I will look at the film "Slacker" (Linklater, 1991) and see

"Act I, the screenwriter sets up the story, establishes character, launches the dramatic premise (what
the story is about), illustrates the situation (the circumstances surrounding the action), and creates
the relationships between the main character and the other characters who inhabit the landscape of
his or her world." (Field,
2005:21)
At the end of the first act there is a turning point, also known as the 'inciting incident', that signals
the start of the second act which is what Field (2005:24) calls "Confrontation". While act one and
act three usually translates to about roughly a quarter of the story's length each, act two is usually
half of the entire script. "During this second act the main character encounters obstacle after
obstacle that keeps him/her from achieving his/her dramatic need, which is defined as what
the character wants to win, gain, get, or achieve during the course of the screenplay." (Field,
2005:25) "...resolution means solution." (Field, 2005:26) In the third and final act, the resolution, the
story and characters reach a climax. Here the character usually faces his fears, overcomes his
biggest obstacles and defeats the antagonist, though not always. There is a de–escalation in act three.

Couch Potato Slacker
Imagine a world where everyone received the same exact amount of money every payday despite
the diverse career and job opportunities available. In a given neighborhood with equally nice houses,
heart surgeons and lawyers could be living right next door to garbage collectors and waitresses. No
matter how much hard work and effort an individual person puts into their job, that person will still
inevitably get the same paycheck as the couch potato slacker living right next door. Equally

A Generation Of Slackers By Catherine Rampell
As generations go by, our predecessors assume we are skipping out on important aspects of life just
to get a few extra minutes on our devices. In Catherine Rampell's "A Generation of Slackers? Not
So Much", it is said the older generations believe Generation Y is "coddled, disrespectful,
narcissistic, and impatient" (Rampell 388). In all reality our generation is just doing what it has to in
order to thrive in the world we live in, where technology is one of the largest parts of our everyday
lives. If the older generations that criticize Generation Y had grown up in Generation Y they would
realize the world we live in requires the use of technology. The advancement of society with
technology has shaped Generation Y to be the people that they are, relying on technology; however,
older generations believe Generation Y is lazy. The world we live in today depends on technology to
run. We have phones that can practically do anything. That is where the older generations say we are
lazy, it is not that we are lazy, instead we are intuitive and resourceful. These words are viewed
differently by Generation Y as we are trying to simplify everything, allowing work to be done faster.
For example, in "A Generation of Slackers? Not So Much" it states, "College students also spend
fewer hours studying then their counterparts in 1961..." (Rampell 389). We no longer need to go to

What Is A Slacker In College
College is a very diverse place. You encounter all kinds of different people and their characteristics.
In every class you attend, you are most likely to encounter these three people. The slacker, the
overachiever, and the natural.
The one you are more likely to come in contact with is what we call the slacker. The slacker is a
person who does no work. They barely get by in class, do not study or complete class work and they
may even try to cheat off of another person. They are the ones who don't really want to be there but
need to be there to get their degree. The slacker may fall asleep in class, barely show up to class, or
joke around too much. The next likely one you'll come in contact with in college is the overachiever.

Slacking College Students
These days it's hard to find a good paying career without at least an associate's degree. This leads
many people to college. People are different, and although they all came with the same goal they
pursue it differently. College students can be organized into these three groups slackers, average
students, and the overachievers. The first group are slackers, and like the name suggests the slack off
in all things school related. They most likely don't have a clear goal for going because of this they
aren't worried about absences. In fact, they barely show up to class. They aren't worried about their
grades because they aren't trying to achieve anything special. Slackers never study, and if they're

Big Five Surveys
I took the Big Five questionnaire and the LIFE survey. Both of these surveys collect self reported
data (S–data). Self reported data is very beneficial to researchers in that it allows them to gain
knowledge only known by the individual. Questionnaires and surveys which provide S–data are
limited by the answers provided. It is easy to lie or skirt the truth when self reporting data. In my
opinion, the Big Five questionnaire was a more accurate assessment of my personality than was the

The LIFE survey was very similar to the Big Five in that it measures personality in multiple
dimensions and then gives a numerical score for each dimension. The dimensions on the LIFE
survey are suburbanite, cultured, slacker, and preppie. In the suburbanite dimension, I scored 8 out
of 13. According to the survey, people who score higher in the suburbanite dimension live a more
conventional life style and tend to be more family oriented and conservative than those who score
lower. I agree with this score. I tend to be more of a homebody and I enjoy cooking, which is a sign
of a suburbanite. I scored 2 out of 13 in the cultured dimension which I disagree with. The
interpretation of my low cultured score contradicts the interpretation of my low slacker score.
Cultured people try to better the world around them by attending museums, volunteering, and
writing letters. People who score low in this dimension as I did, are assumed to be the kind of
people who eat too much junk food and watch too much TV. The discrepancy probably arose due to
my introversion tendencies, as cultured people are purportedly expressive and vocal. I scored low, 3
out of 13, in the slacker dimension. I apparently relate better to other humans than I do to
computers, and I know that smoking and drinking in excess are bad for my health. People who score
high in the slacker dimension live unhealthy lifestyles, characterized by their excessive use of TV,
fast food, smoking, and drinking habits. I agree with my slacker score, but this assessment of my
personality in the slacker dimension directly contradicts the assessment in the cultured dimension. I
supposedly eat too much fast food and indulge in too much TV according to my cultured score, but
according to my slackers score I live a healthy life style characterized by my infrequent indulgence
in fast food, TV, smoking, and alcohol. The contradictment of these two dimensions goes to show

Types Of Slackers Essay
When it comes to school every student behaves differently in the classroom. Once I reached high
school I realized that some students cared too much and some students didn't care at all; when it
came to their education. Everyone knows someone who would always come to class but never do
anything or someone who never missed a day of class and always participate in class discussions.
During my years in high school I've observed several types of students and how they behaved in
class. In my opinion, most students can be categorized as slackers, over achievers, or standards.
Slackers are the students who almost never come to class or doing any assignments. These type of
students usually just enough work to barely pass they class. A slacker never participates in any
group or class activities. I knew a kid in high school who was a slacker, his name was Billy. He was

sure that one of the biggest factors in this "lazy younger generation" belief is the technological

advancements as "working smart, and not hard", which in their minds, makes it seem like we prefer

Before Sunrise and Before Sunset
The films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are said to represent the so–called slacker genre.
Slackers are individuals in society who have no direction and no reasonable expectation or realistic
goals in life. This term is mainly used with Generation X'ers (people born between 1961 and 1981)
(Casto, "What's A Slacker Movie?"). Slacker movies are films that deal with the ordinary day–to–
day life of these people. In Before Sunrise and Before Sunset the characters sense of wandering and
the feel of aimlessness is what make them qualify as slacker films. It is a different story telling, not
the classical Hollywood story where boy meets girl, falls in love and lives happily ever after but a

definition"). Nine years later, and in their thirties and both attached to other people, they realize that
they are constrained by the choices they have made and that "getting older means no longer having
the chance to realize ones potential through their free choice" (Wartenberg, "Before Sunset |

listening to music and she begins to dance reminding him about his flight. The camera turns to Jesse
where he is seen twirling his wedding ring on his finger. As a viewer the twirling of the wedding
ring is representing the uncertainty about his happiness in his marriage. This situation is very much
relatable to the audience as divorce and the struggle of marriage has become a common occurrence

Analysis Of Michael Francis Moore 's ' The Columbine High...
Born in 1954, Michael Francis Moore is an American documentary filmmaker. His opening
documentary, Roger & Me, "launched his career as one of America's best–known and most
controversial documentarians" (In IMDB). However, his documentary that studies the events of the
Columbine high school massacre is what put him on the map. Bowling for Columbine won the
Academy Award for Documentary feature in 2002. His notable films also include Fahrenheit 9/11,
the highest–grossing documentary of all time that presents a contentious view on the presidency of
George W. Bush. His latest documentary, Where to Invade Next, premiered in the US on October 2,
2015.
Apparent in all his films, Moore is unafraid to make use of entertainment to discuss political,
economic, industrial, cultural, and social concerns that informs, provokes, and sometimes,
manipulates its audience. Moore utilizes the documentary form of filmmaking that adapts to the
shifts in popular culture where entertainment value is crucial. Though his chosen subject matter are
commonly treated in a scholarly and profound manner, he remains critical by treating these topics in
a comedic and sardonic manner.
Apart from being a filmmaker, Moore is also a television screenwriter through his political comedy
show TV Nation, an author of eight books, journalist, actor, and a political activist. Perhaps
Fahrenheit 9/11 is considered Moore's most intriguing documentary. Premiered in the 2004 Cannes

habits not only involve you studying by yourself, but you should ask your classmates or teachers for
help. If you do not discern the lesson that was taught, pull your teacher off to the side and
respectfully ask them for help. Hang around people that do not know the same thing as you,
therefore you can help each other out. Helping friends study is always a benign act. Prioritizing is
always the best route to go. If you prioritize, you most likely will be less stressed when studying for

but if you prioritize you can execute your task very well. To exemplify for you, imagine next week

whether it be the construction of the project, or the pieces of the project you assign to each member.
These people will give you lousy excuses for not finishing their part of the project, and make the
rest of the group agitated. They will also ruin your grade on this project. Unless you want to stay up
all night to do their work to salvage you and your teammates' grades, you will not be getting a good
grade if you are missing things that the "slacker" decided they did not need to do. Even if you have

badly as you do. These people will work with you to try to finish the project and cooperate with you.

Waiter Analysis
you would think there would only be one type of waiter, the kind that does whatever they can to get
the best tip. there are three types of waiters the rookie, the slacker, and the veteran . no matter what
one you get, you're going to get your meal; the question is will the time in the restaurant meet your
standards. the type of waiter you get plays a huge roll in your dining experience, and can really
make or break your time out. the rookie; you can always tell who this is by the first couple of
minutes, they are very unsure of themselves and are shy and always seem scared by what could the
next question be. the service isn't bad when you have a rookie waiter, but you can tell they are
flustered and have so much going on at that exact moment. you'll ask ... Show more content on

you sit down and they are ready for you and don't even have to write down any drink orders and
have them out for you extremely fast. the veteran always seems to know when your ready to order
and has no problems with substitutions and gets everything done quickly and with a great attitude.
your food comes out and if something comes out wrong they quickly fix it and make sure to take it
off the bill. you never have to ask for a refill and they already have dressings out before dinner is
even served. they always have a happy face on and want you to enjoy your meal, you can just tell
they have been doing this for a while and know exactly what to do. the veteran is the waiter you
always hope to get, even on the busiest nights the service is still above average. no matter what kind
of waiter you are, being a server is a tough job and you have to put up with a lot of crazy people. in
a perfect world they would all be classified as a veteran but it's not, and unfortunately theres still the

Slack Off Research Paper
I am a slacker. There is no possible way I will deny that. In some ways, slacking off is both a good
thing and a bad thing. I will admit that I love slacking because I don't have to worry about anything
that is so important and that I can only focus on my video games. It's true. Every time I'm at home, I
play video games and slack off. Every time I am in school, I slack off and feel like that I shouldn't
do my work at all. That's what most slackers feel like. They feel like they shouldn't do anything that
feels important with the exception of video games.
What is my advice for future students? Do not become a slacker. That's the only advice I can give.
What are the main reasons? First, slacking off is not a good thing depending on how you look at it.
Slacking off can drive you away from your school work and you will definitely not graduate from
high school and you will most likely not get a good job because you didn't go to college. The second
reason is that slacking off will get you nowhere. School is the most important thing in your life and
slacking off will not help that in any way. You need to graduate in order to have a job and in order to
get money so that you can buy what every you want. Finally, slacking off will not help your family
members. Let's say that you have chores to do. You were asked to wash the dishes, cut the grass,
clean your room and many other things. You feel like the chores are of no importance so you slack
off and play video games all the long. If you slack off, you can't help your parents around the house
or do ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
My message is this: if you care about your life, if you care about your school work, if you care about
anything in your life that isn't about video games, you shouldn't slack off. Think about that for quite
a while and see if slacking off will do anything in your life, even see if slacking off will improve or
decrease your future in any way

Difference Between A College Scholar And A Slacker
Let's face it, not all who choose to continue school past the 12th grade made the choice with the best
intentions in mind. When it comes the college, the next level of education after high school, students
who choose to attend will come from different nationalities, religions, and financial backgrounds,
but can almost always be classified into two categories the will define them during the collegiate
journey. Those categories are the scholars and the slackers. A college scholar is one who makes the
best of their college experience and understands the main purpose of earning a college degree. A
college slacker is one who does not understand the main purpose of earning an education and does
not make the best of their experience. Scholars and slackers are hard to tell apart based on their

When it comes to the time spent on preparing yourself to do well, for scholars it always seems like
there is never enough and every bit of time is precious and must be used to put together their best

upcoming party or concert and can honestly care less about a test grade. Now when looking at a
scholar and a slacker there are some similarities, even though they aren't always easy to identify.
There is nothing wrong with attending a party here or there or even taking time to see your favorite
musician. Scholars and slackers are initially given the same resources and opportunities to do

Essay about Two Cheers for the Maligned Slacker Dude

9 March 2015
Rise at a Young Age Two Cheers for the Maligned Slacker Dude by Nathan Robin is an essay from
the Wall Street Journal on February 19, 2011. Nathan Robin is the head writer for "A.V. Club," the
entertainment section of the Onion (481). In this essay, Robin aims to convince his readers that men
in their 20's can accomplish great things. The idea of being young and creative is what Robin
emphasizes in the essay. It is interesting what Robin uses to persuade his readers about the idea of
being young and creative. Robin uses a movie, and four men, who are billionaires today, and his
own personal experience as examples to persuade his readers. In the beginning of the article, Robin

The other three men is Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim. These three men created
YouTube. The trio were too young and green, and wanted to share clips of T.V. shows and movies.
Piece those clips together in a video because it would be cool to share (482). YouTube then led to
success for other men in their late teens and 20's such as Justin Bieber and the Lonely Island. Mark
Zuckerberg, Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim all share the same quality, creativity. That
is why Robin uses these four men as examples of his claim. These four men provide good examples
of his claim because of how young and creative they were, which then led to success and
accomplishment of their goals. Robin's last example of his claim is his own personal experience,
which also relates to the ethos of his argument. As a 22–year old college junior, Robin became the
first head entertainment writer of the A.V. Club. As I said earlier, the A.V. Club is the entertainment
section of The Onion. The Onion is a website based on entertainment featuring satirical articles
reporting on international, national, and local news. The founders of The Onion are Tim Keck and
Christopher Johnson. Both Keck and Johnson founded the website while attending the University of

This might seem harmless but this "Dream" is very dangerous. Denizet–Luis explains how "There
are kids starving themselves so they can be the Abercrombie girl, and there are guys who think they
aren't worthy if they don't look exactly like the guys on the wall" (Denizet–Luis, 371). Children
don't know that it's bad for them to starve themselves to look like the idol they look up too. They see
those people and say "why can't I be like that?" and try so hard to do it and get sick or hurt. This
pursuit for the "Dream" is dangerous especially if it involves children because children are naive and
do not know the difference between what they can or can't do. This does not exclude the adults
because they too have the same dream and some are reckless to achieve it, some want to look like
the Victoria secret models and so they throw up what they eat or exercise too much which is very

On Laziness By Christopher Morley Summary
Generally, lazy people are not admired. Society, as a whole, prefers those who are willing and able
to actively and positively contribute to its progress. Effort is praised while indifference can typically
be seen as shameful. Christopher Morley understands this. In his short essay, "On Laziness," he
indirectly confronts the slothful in an effort to make them see the error of their ways. Morley deals
with the topic of laziness in a overly sarcastic and satirical tone to stress the absurdity of the trait.
Early in his essay, Morley utilizes irony that made it evident that his essay on the supposed benefits
of laziness is meant to be treated as a satire. He in no way is actually believing what he is explicitly
stating. The opening statement can only reasonably be viewed as an intentional joke. Morley claims
that he intends "to write an essay on Laziness but [is] too indolent to [even] do so." Yet, the paper
does not end here; he continues on and completes an entire academic essay, blatantly contradicting
his first sentence in it. If Morley stays true to his words and fully believes in the value of idleness,
no work would have been made to defend it. He makes the sarcasm even more obvious through his
deliberate choice of words. While criticizing activeness and energy, Morley spoke of having "a
determined effort to be more languid and demure." It is paradoxical to try to be lazy. Putting in
effort and making an attempt to be so goes against its basic definition. Morley provides examples of
where laziness was shown to be virtuous. However, he purposely makes them flawed and highly
debatable, forcing the slothful to consider if there is in actuality a strong case for their behavior.
Morley initially calls upon recent history for proof. He reminds the audience of the Great War– the
essay being written in 1920 shortly after it ended– and declares that "the world would have been
spared a great deal... if the Germans had been as lazy, as indifferent, and as righteously laissez–
fairish as their neighbours..." This is a bold claim. War is an atrocious ordeal whose causes are
complex and cannot solely be blamed on one group of people. Many including the toughest

Before Sunrise and Before Sunset
The films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are said to represent the so–called slacker genre.
Slackers are individuals in society who have no direction and no reasonable expectation or realistic
goals in life. This term is mainly used with Generation X'ers (people born between 1961 and 1981)
(Casto, "What's A Slacker Movie?"). Slacker movies are films that deal with the ordinary day–to–
day life of these people. In Before Sunrise and Before Sunset the characters sense of wandering and
the feel of aimlessness is what make them qualify as slacker films. It is a different story telling, not
the classical Hollywood story where boy meets girl, falls in love and lives happily ever after but a
real story with perhaps no happy ending or no ending ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
The difference is that nine years earlier, they were a twenty–something couple both single, which
represented the Generation X, people who "grew up in the 'me generation' of the [1970s and] 1980s
and now recognize that it was not all that it was cracked up to be" (Jochim, "Generation X defies
definition"). Nine years later, and in their thirties and both attached to other people, they realize that
they are constrained by the choices they have made and that "getting older means no longer having
the chance to realize ones potential through their free choice" (Wartenberg, "Before Sunset |
Philosophy Now"). At the end of the film Before Sunset Céline and Jesse are in her apartment
listening to music and she begins to dance reminding him about his flight. The camera turns to Jesse
where he is seen twirling his wedding ring on his finger. As a viewer the twirling of the wedding
ring is representing the uncertainty about his happiness in his marriage. This situation is very much
relatable to the audience as divorce and the struggle of marriage has become a common occurrence
in today's society. Both the films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are about Céline's and Jesse's
relationship and their mutual interest in conversation. They spend a lot of time talking about their
feelings yet never sincerely act upon them. The films can relate to the

Mr. Maxwell, that he isn't just a slacker. Instead he puts himself and Mr. Maxwell in a whole bunch
of danger. The main theme of this book is everybody deserves a second chance, because even when
Mark is very rude towards Mr. Maxwell they end up becoming friends in the end of the book. My
first quote shows that in the begging of the story Mr. Maxwell does not like Mark. The quote is "But
after 22 years in the classroom, Mr. Maxwell could spot a slacker a mile away. And by Wednesday
afternoon at the end of his third class with mark he reached his decision: This new boy was a
slacker" (Clements 22). In this quote it shows how Mr. Maxwell judges Mark and immediately
dislikes him because of his attitude. It only took Three days before Mr. Maxwell decides that he
dislikes Mark. This relates to the theme, everybody deserves a second chance, because it shows that
one may not like a person at first but it doesn't mean one should not give that person a second

Analysis Of Claude Levi Strauss 's ' Black As Slacker...
Claude Lévi–Strauss was a French anthropologist who believed that the myths created and told by a
society could be a window into the beliefs and conflicts of that society. As a Structuralist, Lévi–
Strauss saw stories as language and sought to understand their underlying grammar. This he believed
centered on pairs of opposite ideas, held by the culture, but creating tension within it – the raw and
the cooked, the sacred and the profane, and so on. School of Rock, a 2003 film starring Jack Black
as slacker Dewey Finn, shows the tension between a truly American pair of opposites: laziness vs.
hard work. While in other mythologies it is a trickster character who mediates between these
opposites, the nature of this American pair, and the surrounding culture, make it necessary that the
trickster not remain so; he has to join one side or the other. Claude Lévi–Strauss sought a scientific
approach to the interpretation of the meaning of myths. To perform an analysis, he would first
collect every version and variant of a myth possible. Each version would be broken down into its
individual plot elements, and these elements were then plotted on a chart to show how they fit
together. The charts would be compared across variants, and eventually the true meaning of the
myth would emerge. Any scientist knows that a large data pool is indispensable for getting good
results. Unfortunately, there is only one School of Rock. Though I cannot be so thorough as he

Is Holden Caulfield Ignorant
Adolescence, this is a time where you figure out who you truly are. This soul searching leads to self
realization. Holden Caulfield from The Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger, has trouble accepting
himself. Throughout his days he would put on a cap just to be someone else. It is his get away place,
a place of isolation. A way for him to seclude from the world and become someone he isn't. This is
relatable to numerous teens. Though Holden could be described using numerous adjectives,
Holden's character can be perfectly described as ignorant, a liar, and a slacker. He is ignorant
because he does not learn from his mistakes. He is a compulsive liar. Finally, he is a slacker because
he avoids work. Holden is just like countless people out there who do not apply themselves. You
see, Holden could be smart. He could be successful. He just doesn't have the motivation or ambition
to do so. Being ignorant means to lack knowledge or awareness; uneducated or unsophisticated.
Holden is known to be this way because he gets himself into the most severe situations. However,
once he is out of them, he will have the same issue later on. This is because Holden is not astute. He
repeats those mistakes because he does not learn from them. This makes him ignorant. An example
of a situation is when he gets in a fist fight with Stradlater. "I tried to sock him, with all my might,

Analysis Of I Just Wanna Be Average By Mike Rose

  • 1. Analysis Of I Just Wanna Be Average By Mike Rose We go to school day after day and see the same things happening. We never have the time to question these things or to even stop and take a second to wonder, is this the right way to handle this or is this what I am supposed to be doing with my life. From the moment we walk through those school doors until we leave at the end of the day there is nothing but competition. There are many different kinds of competition, whether it is in a sport for school or for who has the best academic scores. A second in the day does not go by where there are not two students competing for the winning spot. In Mike Rose, "I Just Wanna Be Average" we are able to see that there is no self– motivation for Rose when he realizes his test scores have been mixed up ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Many people believe that we need to have our children competing to be the best of the best when they are young. Therefore, giving them a head start on a great future. In Rose he says, "Students will float to the mark you set." (Rose 154) This means that if we set the mark at college, there are kids that will compete to be the best out of their class and will strive to become the most successful. Although we do not realize this, but by setting that mark it is giving the slackers something to aim for even though they never seem to compete for anything. This means that by having an environment that is willing to push even the slackers in school shows that they to can have something to compete for in the future. The environment of students plays an important role in helping students compete to become better. We tend to see better scores from students in private schools rather than students in public schools, this is because students are pushed harder in private schools and are competing to be the best because they know that if they start to fall behind they will be left in the dust. These students become the slackers. Problems start to form when the parents of the slackers start to shelter them and say that competing is not that important. Young adults are smart and they see this as an opportunity to use their parents. When reading Katherine S. Newman, "The Accordion Family: Boomerang Kids, Anxious Parents, and the Private Toll of Global Competition" we find it interesting when she brings up the topic on how "Adult children are migrating home or refraining from leaving in the first place, and there they stay for many years longer." (Newman 91) With this being said we can right away notice that there is no motivation to become better or to even compete in the work for to be able to be living on their ...

  • 3. Coworkers Coworkers. These are the people that the majority of us have to deal with by the time we reach the college level. Some can be a joy to work with, while others may not be as easy going. As an employee, at my current job, I've had good and bad experience with my fellow coworkers, but over the course of time I've learned how to handle this type of situation. At any job you will have to know how to deal with different types of coworkers. To my understanding coworkers can be classified into three major groups: slackers, overachievers, and neutral co–workers. The slacker is the one who is unwilling to work or use energy and probably the worst one to work with. These sluggish co– workers show up to work five to ten minutes late and have the nerve ...

He or she is always trying to impress the manager and tries to keep themselves occupied throughout their whole shift. They usually only talk when customers are approching, but even then they tend to come off as being snobbish. They are depicted to be bossy and love to take charge, but when they do something wrong they wont hesitiate to throw you under the bus to save themselves. For example, during one of my many shifts I had to work with one of my least favorite co–worker, Sabrina. That afternoon we agreed to split the several task assigned to us in half so we would finish faster. During the time we had to complete these task, we also had to be at the register attending customers as they approched us. As the day progressed I have taken notice that all the items I have stocked up was rearranged, but everytime I would reposition the item, it would change positions again or it would be relocated to another section of the store. I soon found out that my co–worker was not just finishing her task but changing what she believed was wrong with my display. Of course, I let this type of situation slide a little because everyone knows how she is, however, soon after our manager approached us, and politely asked who was the one that stocked up the items. Sabrina shot up and proudly announced that she did it all by herself, which obviously was not true, and goes to show that everything she had stocked up was not in the correct shelves. Although it was her mistake and I had nothing to do with it, she tried dragging me down with her to save herself. In addition, our other fellow co–worker, Dora, never talked to anyone else except for the customers, but she was not as nice and polite as everyone may have thought. She acted like she knew it all and would try to consult the customers about having their card or money ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 5. Slacker By Nathan Rabin Summary Many may view a "slacker" as one who will procrastinate on everything meaningful, one who is ignorant, lazy, incompetent, or even uneducated. Nathan Rabin argues statistically that men ranging from their late teens to late 20s happen to be in the prime time when "you're too young to realize your limitations, or even to know that limitations exist" (Rabin 482). The author argues that no man should have a "limit" but to realize our potential as human beings as a whole to perceive red lights from green lights, and to keep going when someone else said STOP. This essay influences its readers to believe Rabin's assertion that being a so called "slacker" is not so bad through its anecdotal evidence, appealing to the opposition, and societal values. Nathan Rabin affectively uses anecdotal evidence to make readers understand what he means when he says that no man should be declared a slacker because he's "dressed in a baggy ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Men are not created with the same mind–set nor the same motives as one another, but we all had the same thought of becoming a billionaire at age 20. The author mentions Mr. Zuckerberg as "a 26– year–old scruffily dressed Jewish kid who started a cultural revolution in his dorm room and inspired a movie that may just win an Oscar for best picture"(Rabin 482). Also another way he effectively appeals to the opposition by the opinion of other people, because no one in their right minds would guess a person who dresses in their pajamas in the middle of broad day could be the next 26–year–old billionaire. But that's the flaws of judging a book by its cover. One can say that Mr. Zuckerberg had a clarity to be successful, there's a saying in which goes for everyone who is striving to be successful "If you don't help build your own dream, someone else would hire you to build theirs". Not all men are like Mr. Zuckerberg, but we sure can be inspired to be like ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 7. Me and You and Memento and Fargo by J.J. Murphy Structure in any form of narrative is vital, whether it be in films, books, theatre, etc. It is a frame for a story to work within. While there is a traditional method and formula to structuring a film narrative, filmmakers all over the world have experimented with breaking the norm and trying new ways to structure a film. It tested the viewer's notion of what structure is and how a narrative can be told. It was also new and something that audiences were not used to. Even now, a film that moves too far away from the traditional three–act–structure, is highly experimental and usually only seen in independent or student films. In this essay I will look at the film "Slacker" (Linklater, 1991) and see how they structured the ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... "Act I, the screenwriter sets up the story, establishes character, launches the dramatic premise (what the story is about), illustrates the situation (the circumstances surrounding the action), and creates the relationships between the main character and the other characters who inhabit the landscape of his or her world." (Field, 2005:21) At the end of the first act there is a turning point, also known as the 'inciting incident', that signals the start of the second act which is what Field (2005:24) calls "Confrontation". While act one and act three usually translates to about roughly a quarter of the story's length each, act two is usually half of the entire script. "During this second act the main character encounters obstacle after obstacle that keeps him/her from achieving his/her dramatic need, which is defined as what the character wants to win, gain, get, or achieve during the course of the screenplay." (Field, 2005:25) "...resolution means solution." (Field, 2005:26) In the third and final act, the resolution, the story and characters reach a climax. Here the character usually faces his fears, overcomes his biggest obstacles and defeats the antagonist, though not always. There is a de–escalation in act three. In the book "Story" (McKee, 1997:105–106) Robert McKee defines the function of structure and character: "The function of STRUCTURE is to provide ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

In a given neighborhood with equally nice houses, heart surgeons and lawyers could be living right next door to garbage collectors and waitresses. No matter how much hard work and effort an individual person puts into their job, that person will still inevitably get the same paycheck as the couch potato slacker living right next door. Equally upsetting is the lack of capacity to do something about this potential free–rider problem; the national government is unlikely to even hear the case out, let alone do something about it.

Wescott had many extracurricular activities, most of which evolved around writing and receiving letters to and from Bobbie, shopping, drinking, or gambling. Wescott spent a lot of time spending and obtaining money while he was away from the United States. He spent money buying Bobbie gifts such as China sets, pajamas, lipstick holders, and silver bracelets, just to name a few. When he talked about the things he would buy for Bobbie or for himself when he was on liberty, he would write in great detail about the items and the cost in yens and the exchange rate at the time (the dollar had depreciated since he had last been to Japan). He wrote pages upon pages about playing poker, blackjack, craps, etc. and how much money if any he would win.

  • 11. A Generation Of Slackers By Catherine Rampell As generations go by, our predecessors assume we are skipping out on important aspects of life just to get a few extra minutes on our devices. In Catherine Rampell's "A Generation of Slackers? Not So Much", it is said the older generations believe Generation Y is "coddled, disrespectful, narcissistic, and impatient" (Rampell 388). In all reality our generation is just doing what it has to in order to thrive in the world we live in, where technology is one of the largest parts of our everyday lives. If the older generations that criticize Generation Y had grown up in Generation Y they would realize the world we live in requires the use of technology. The advancement of society with technology has shaped Generation Y to be the people that they are, relying on technology; however, older generations believe Generation Y is lazy. The world we live in today depends on technology to run. We have phones that can practically do anything. That is where the older generations say we are lazy, it is not that we are lazy, instead we are intuitive and resourceful. These words are viewed differently by Generation Y as we are trying to simplify everything, allowing work to be done faster. For example, in "A Generation of Slackers? Not So Much" it states, "College students also spend fewer hours studying then their counterparts in 1961..." (Rampell 389).

In every class you attend, you are most likely to encounter these three people. The slacker, the overachiever, and the natural. The one you are more likely to come in contact with is what we call the slacker. The slacker is a person who does no work. They barely get by in class, do not study or complete class work and they may even try to cheat off of another person. They are the ones who don't really want to be there but need to be there to get their degree. The slacker may fall asleep in class, barely show up to class, or joke around too much.

The quadrants represent your habits on importance and urgency in relation to your priorities. Although I spend most of my time as a prioritizer, I can remove the yes–man from my life by being a better prioritizer and learning how to say no to people. The first and fourth quadrants, procrastinator and slacker, are the two worst quadrants to be in. Both leave you with low–quality performance, stress, guilt, and a lot of wasted time. Procrastinators and slackers do not plan anything out, nor do they worry about the quality of their work, only that it eventually gets done, sometime in the future.

People are different, and although they all came with the same goal they pursue it differently. College students can be organized into these three groups slackers, average students, and the overachievers. The first group are slackers, and like the name suggests the slack off in all things school related. They most likely don't have a clear goal for going because of this they aren't worried about absences. In fact, they barely show up to class. They aren't worried about their grades because they aren't trying to achieve anything special. Slackers never study, and if they're given homework they don't do it. ...

Self reported data is very beneficial to researchers in that it allows them to gain knowledge only known by the individual. Questionnaires and surveys which provide S–data are limited by the answers provided. It is easy to lie or skirt the truth when self reporting data. In my opinion, the Big Five questionnaire was a more accurate assessment of my personality than was the assessment from the LIFE survey. The Big Five questionnaire measures personality factors in five dimensions; openness, contentiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. The score on the Big Five purportedly indicates how well a person fits into their ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The LIFE survey was very similar to the Big Five in that it measures personality in multiple dimensions and then gives a numerical score for each dimension. The dimensions on the LIFE survey are suburbanite, cultured, slacker, and preppie. In the suburbanite dimension, I scored 8 out of 13. According to the survey, people who score higher in the suburbanite dimension live a more conventional life style and tend to be more family oriented and conservative than those who score lower. I agree with this score. I tend to be more of a homebody and I enjoy cooking, which is a sign of a suburbanite. I scored 2 out of 13 in the cultured dimension which I disagree with. The interpretation of my low cultured score contradicts the interpretation of my low slacker score. Cultured people try to better the world around them by attending museums, volunteering, and writing letters. People who score low in this dimension as I did, are assumed to be the kind of people who eat too much junk food and watch too much TV. The discrepancy probably arose due to my introversion tendencies, as cultured people are purportedly expressive and vocal. I scored low, 3 out of 13, in the slacker dimension. I apparently relate better to other humans than I do to computers, and I know that smoking and drinking in excess are bad for my health. People who score high in the slacker dimension live unhealthy lifestyles, characterized by their excessive use of TV, fast food, smoking, and drinking habits. I agree with my slacker score, but this assessment of my personality in the slacker dimension directly contradicts the assessment in the cultured dimension. I supposedly eat too much fast food and indulge in too much TV according to my cultured score, but according to my slackers score I live a healthy life style characterized by my infrequent indulgence in fast food, TV, smoking, and alcohol. The contradictment of these two dimensions goes to show that it is ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Once I reached high school I realized that some students cared too much and some students didn't care at all; when it came to their education. Everyone knows someone who would always come to class but never do anything or someone who never missed a day of class and always participate in class discussions. During my years in high school I've observed several types of students and how they behaved in class. In my opinion, most students can be categorized as slackers, over achievers, or standards. Slackers are the students who almost never come to class or doing any assignments. These type of students usually just enough work to barely pass they class. A slacker never participates in any group or class activities. I knew a kid in high school who was a slacker, his name was Billy. He was a cool kid but sucked when it came down to getting assignments done. Billy barely came to class and when he did all he would do was day dream and play games on his phone.

And according to seventy–five percent of Americans, "Today's youth are less virtuous and industrious than their elders" (Rampell 388).

The older generation views our willingness to use these advancements as "working smart, and not hard", which in their minds, makes it seem like we prefer to take the easy way out. This is more than often not the case! I am sure that if millennials did not make use of our resources, some would consider us to be 'ungrateful'.

Slackers are individuals in society who have no direction and no reasonable expectation or realistic goals in life. This term is mainly used with Generation X'ers (people born between 1961 and 1981) (Casto, "What's A Slacker Movie?"). Slacker movies are films that deal with the ordinary day–to– day life of these people. In Before Sunrise and Before Sunset the characters sense of wandering and the feel of aimlessness is what make them qualify as slacker films. It is a different story telling, not the classical Hollywood story where boy meets girl, falls in love and lives happily ever after but a real story with perhaps no happy ending or no ending ...

Nine years later, and in their thirties and both attached to other people, they realize that they are constrained by the choices they have made and that "getting older means no longer having the chance to realize ones potential through their free choice" (Wartenberg, "Before Sunset | Philosophy Now"). At the end of the film Before Sunset Céline and Jesse are in her apartment listening to music and she begins to dance reminding him about his flight. The camera turns to Jesse where he is seen twirling his wedding ring on his finger. As a viewer the twirling of the wedding ring is representing the uncertainty about his happiness in his marriage. This situation is very much relatable to the audience as divorce and the struggle of marriage has become a common occurrence in today's society. Both the films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are about Céline's and Jesse's relationship and their mutual interest in conversation.

His opening documentary, Roger & Me, "launched his career as one of America's best–known and most controversial documentarians" (In IMDB). However, his documentary that studies the events of the Columbine high school massacre is what put him on the map. Bowling for Columbine won the Academy Award for Documentary feature in 2002. His notable films also include Fahrenheit 9/11, the highest–grossing documentary of all time that presents a contentious view on the presidency of George W. Bush. His latest documentary, Where to Invade Next, premiered in the US on October 2, 2015. Apparent in all his films, Moore is unafraid to make use of entertainment to discuss political, economic, industrial, cultural, and social concerns that informs, provokes, and sometimes, manipulates its audience. Moore utilizes the documentary form of filmmaking that adapts to the shifts in popular culture where entertainment value is crucial. Though his chosen subject matter are commonly treated in a scholarly and profound manner, he remains critical by treating these topics in a comedic and sardonic manner. Apart from being a filmmaker, Moore is also a television screenwriter through his political comedy show TV Nation, an author of eight books, journalist, actor, and a political activist.

Study habits not only involve you studying by yourself, but you should ask your classmates or teachers for help. If you do not discern the lesson that was taught, pull your teacher off to the side and respectfully ask them for help. Hang around people that do not know the same thing as you, therefore you can help each other out. Helping friends study is always a benign act. Prioritizing is always the best route to go. If you prioritize, you most likely will be less stressed when studying for a test. As we enter high school, there are going to be multiple assignments and tests on the same day, but if you prioritize you can execute your task very well.

"Slackers" are the people in the group who lack the effort to do anything in the group. These people will just run around the room, acting like animals, and will not try to get any work done, thinking that you will do it for them. These individuals will mess with your plans in anyway possible, whether it be the construction of the project, or the pieces of the project you assign to each member. These people will give you lousy excuses for not finishing their part of the project, and make the rest of the group agitated. They will also ruin your grade on this project. Unless you want to stay up all night to do their work to salvage you and your teammates' grades, you will not be getting a good grade if you are missing things that the "slacker" decided they did not need to do. Even if you have people who are frustrating, there are the people who will work with you and want a good grade as badly as you do. These people will work with you to try to finish the project and cooperate with you. But even if you have these especially exceptional people, there are still the people who will fight with you with everything and will not work at all.

I will admit that I love slacking because I don't have to worry about anything that is so important and that I can only focus on my video games. It's true. Every time I'm at home, I play video games and slack off. Every time I am in school, I slack off and feel like that I shouldn't do my work at all. That's what most slackers feel like. They feel like they shouldn't do anything that feels important with the exception of video games. What is my advice for future students? Do not become a slacker. That's the only advice I can give. What are the main reasons? First, slacking off is not a good thing depending on how you look at it. Slacking off can drive you away from your school work and you will definitely not graduate from high school and you will most likely not get a good job because you didn't go to college. The second reason is that slacking off will get you nowhere. School is the most important thing in your life and slacking off will not help that in any way. You need to graduate in order to have a job and in order to get money so that you can buy what every you want. Finally, slacking off will not help your family members. Let's say that you have chores to do. You were asked to wash the dishes, cut the grass, clean your room and many other things.

YouTube then led to success for other men in their late teens and 20's such as Justin Bieber and the Lonely Island.

Christopher Morley understands this. In his short essay, "On Laziness," he indirectly confronts the slothful in an effort to make them see the error of their ways. Morley deals with the topic of laziness in a overly sarcastic and satirical tone to stress the absurdity of the trait. Early in his essay, Morley utilizes irony that made it evident that his essay on the supposed benefits of laziness is meant to be treated as a satire. He in no way is actually believing what he is explicitly stating. The opening statement can only reasonably be viewed as an intentional joke. Morley claims that he intends "to write an essay on Laziness but [is] too indolent to [even] do so." Yet, the paper does not end here; he continues on and completes an entire academic essay, blatantly contradicting his first sentence in it. If Morley stays true to his words and fully believes in the value of idleness, no work would have been made to defend it. He makes the sarcasm even more obvious through his deliberate choice of words. While criticizing activeness and energy, Morley spoke of having "a determined effort to be more languid and demure." It is paradoxical to try to be lazy. Putting in effort and making an attempt to be so goes against its basic definition. Morley provides examples of where laziness was shown to be virtuous. However, he purposely makes them flawed and highly debatable, forcing the slothful to consider if there is in actuality a strong case for their behavior. Morley initially calls upon recent history for proof. He reminds the audience of the Great War– the essay being written in 1920 shortly after it ended– and declares that "the world would have been spared a great deal... if the Germans had been as lazy, as indifferent, and as righteously laissez– fairish as their neighbours..." This is a bold claim. War is an atrocious ordeal whose causes are complex and cannot solely be blamed on one group of people. Many including the toughest advocate for indolence will not support the idea that the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 61. Before Sunrise and Before Sunset The films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are said to represent the so–called slacker genre. Slackers are individuals in society who have no direction and no reasonable expectation or realistic goals in life. This term is mainly used with Generation X'ers (people born between 1961 and 1981) (Casto, "What's A Slacker Movie?"). Slacker movies are films that deal with the ordinary day–to– day life of these people. In Before Sunrise and Before Sunset the characters sense of wandering and the feel of aimlessness is what make them qualify as slacker films. It is a different story telling, not the classical Hollywood story where boy meets girl, falls in love and lives happily ever after but a real story with perhaps no happy ending or no ending ...

The difference is that nine years earlier, they were a twenty–something couple both single, which represented the Generation X, people who "grew up in the 'me generation' of the [1970s and] 1980s and now recognize that it was not all that it was cracked up to be" (Jochim, "Generation X defies definition"). Nine years later, and in their thirties and both attached to other people, they realize that they are constrained by the choices they have made and that "getting older means no longer having the chance to realize ones potential through their free choice" (Wartenberg, "Before Sunset | Philosophy Now"). At the end of the film Before Sunset Céline and Jesse are in her apartment listening to music and she begins to dance reminding him about his flight. The camera turns to Jesse where he is seen twirling his wedding ring on his finger. As a viewer the twirling of the wedding ring is representing the uncertainty about his happiness in his marriage. This situation is very much relatable to the audience as divorce and the struggle of marriage has become a common occurrence in today's society. Both the films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are about Céline's and Jesse's relationship and their mutual interest in conversation. They spend a lot of time talking about their feelings yet never sincerely act upon them. The films can relate to the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 63. A Week I The Woods By Karl Maxwell Quotes I really enjoyed the book A Week I the Woods by Andrew Clements. When a rich 5th grader, Mark Chelmsely, realizes he must attend the field trip he decides that he is going to prove to his teacher, Mr. Maxwell, that he isn't just a slacker. Instead he puts himself and Mr. Maxwell in a whole bunch of danger. The main theme of this book is everybody deserves a second chance, because even when Mark is very rude towards Mr. Maxwell they end up becoming friends in the end of the book. My first quote shows that in the begging of the story Mr. Maxwell does not like Mark. The quote is "But after 22 years in the classroom, Mr. Maxwell could spot a slacker a mile away. And by Wednesday afternoon at the end of his third class with mark he reached his decision: This new boy was a slacker" (Clements 22). In this quote it shows how Mr. Maxwell judges Mark and immediately dislikes him because of his attitude. It only took Three days before Mr. Maxwell decides that he dislikes Mark. This relates to the theme, everybody deserves a second chance, because it shows that one may not like a person at first but it doesn't mean one should not give that person a second chance. ...

The second quote is "When Mrs. Stearns told Mr. Maxwell the news, his attitude toward this new boy changed instantly. But it didn't change for the better. Because the only kind if people Mr. Maxwell disliked more than slackers were environmentally insensitive, buy–the–whole–world rich folks. And the only people he disliked more than rich folks were their lazy, spoiled kids" (Clements 25). I chose this quote because Mr. Maxwell is judging Mark and his family again because of what he heard.

We go through all the drills of our warm up until the buzzer rings. Finally it is game time. The ball flies across the net to the other team. We all stand in our positions waiting for the return. The ball comes and two of my teammates go for the same ball. One yells, "Got it!" while the other just stand there assuming the other one knows they are going to get it. The ball shanks off and hits the floor. My teammates and I come together. Some yell at the others and say "Talk!" making the players that messed up feel like a puppy that has just been scolded by its master. Others try to pick up the teammates by saying things like, "It is okay. Get the next one." or "Believe in yourself and your teammates." If you have ever been apart of a sport's team, you know every player has a different personality. Some may be uplifting, and others can drag you to the ground. Every team strives to get along, but how is that going to work when there is always a person who brings down everyone else? Fortunately, not all teammates are rude and hurtful. There are some who try and help out to lift the spirits and encourage others. Teams are only going to succeed when they're all able to find common ground and work together as teammates should.

  • 73. Analysis Of Claude Levi Strauss 's ' Black As Slacker... Claude Lévi–Strauss was a French anthropologist who believed that the myths created and told by a society could be a window into the beliefs and conflicts of that society. As a Structuralist, Lévi– Strauss saw stories as language and sought to understand their underlying grammar. This he believed centered on pairs of opposite ideas, held by the culture, but creating tension within it – the raw and the cooked, the sacred and the profane, and so on. School of Rock, a 2003 film starring Jack Black as slacker Dewey Finn, shows the tension between a truly American pair of opposites: laziness vs. hard work. While in other mythologies it is a trickster character who mediates between these opposites, the nature of this American pair, and the surrounding culture, make it necessary that the trickster not remain so; he has to join one side or the other. Claude Lévi–Strauss sought a scientific approach to the interpretation of the meaning of myths. To perform an analysis, he would first collect every version and variant of a myth possible. Each version would be broken down into its individual plot elements, and these elements were then plotted on a chart to show how they fit together. The charts would be compared across variants, and eventually the true meaning of the myth would emerge. Any scientist knows that a large data pool is indispensable for getting good results. Unfortunately, there is only one School of Rock. Though I cannot be so thorough as he would have liked, the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

For example, if you were a carpenter, but you enjoy writing, then you belong in both of those "worlds." While reading the books, Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, and the book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs, I found myself asking the question, can you really belong in two places?

  • 77. Is Holden Caulfield Ignorant Adolescence, this is a time where you figure out who you truly are. This soul searching leads to self realization. Holden Caulfield from The Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger, has trouble accepting himself. Throughout his days he would put on a cap just to be someone else. It is his get away place, a place of isolation. A way for him to seclude from the world and become someone he isn't. This is relatable to numerous teens. Though Holden could be described using numerous adjectives, Holden's character can be perfectly described as ignorant, a liar, and a slacker. He is ignorant because he does not learn from his mistakes. He is a compulsive liar. Finally, he is a slacker because he avoids work. Holden is just like countless people out there who do not apply themselves. You see, Holden could be smart. He could be successful. He just doesn't have the motivation or ambition to do so. Being ignorant means to lack knowledge or awareness; uneducated or unsophisticated. Holden is known to be this way because he gets himself into the most severe situations. However, once he is out of them, he will have the same issue later on. This is because Holden is not astute. He repeats those mistakes because he does not learn from them. This makes him ignorant. An example of a situation is when he gets in a fist fight with Stradlater. "I tried to sock him, with all my might, right smack in the toothbrush, so it would split his goddam throat open," (Salinger, pg 43). From this we know that ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
