Journal 2 – Tip Jar There are many dollars out there but none of them have the same serial number as me,
That is why I am unique. Luckily I am not very old, only a couple years old. I have had plenty of homes in my short lifetime. I have almost been caught in a fire, I almost even drowned once. But the day I was finally taken out of the tip jar was the greatest adventure I have ever had. December 30th 1999, I was taken out of an old rusty can tip jar. As I was being stuffed into an envelope I screamed in excitement! “I’ll never have to smell this old bar again.” After being stuffed into the envelope I was thrown into a box, which was eventually tossed into the back of a plane. I thought, “This is going to be a great journey!” The air was hot and musty in the cargo I was flying in. I wished there were other dollars like me to talk to, but all there was were old hundred dollars bills and a couple of checks. The old hundred dollar bill seemed way to high class, hence he didn’t speak to me once, and dollar bills never dare speak to checks. So there I was, all alone in long, hot, boring plan ride. The sun was blazing when a ten year old took me out of his envelope. I lasted about twenty minutes in the hands of this child before I got completely drenched in ice cream. I was handed to an old man immediately after suffocating in ice cream. I was placed into a very old register, it smelt quite bad from what I recall. The old man and I, along with a bunch of change and bigger bills, drove around with creepy “ice cream man” music blaring. I was immediately relieved when he took me out of the register, but began having an anxiety attack when I was placed into a snack machine. “Seriously, you traded me for some measly peanuts?” I was overwhelmed when I found out I was stuck…...

The Bell Jar

...The Bell Jar Essay Thesis: Buddy Willard Esther's ex, pressures her into bad situations and to do things she has never done before due to his character issues and lack of respect for Esther. Buddy Willard is Esther's former boyfriend. He's the kind of guy that, in a mothers perspective is always trying to get you to be more like him. And if it's from a girls perspective, he's the kind of guy that your mother is always trying to set you up with because he's her idea of perfection, contrary to what your idea of perfection is. No matter how great he seems as a boy, you know there has to be something terribly wrong with him to make your mother like him so much. While Buddy looks great on paper, Buddy's interactions with Esther reveal him to be at times dumb, oblivious, and just plain pathetic. Buddy is constantly making Esther feel irrational and ignorant in contrast to his conceited sense of superiority and falsely confidence. When Buddy undresses in front of Esther, and Esther compares him to a "turkey gizzard", it's hard not to feel that Buddy sort of deserves to be ridiculed. The way Buddy talks about Esther I think affects her. When somebody you care about makes you feel like crap that it really takes a toll on you. You want to how much you appreciate and admire the person you care about, not have them dampen them with a lack of interest, making yourself feel better, and a misunderstanding of how to treat a woman. Esther idolizes......

The Bell Jar

...Joelle Silverman Professor Yoder WR 150 Paper 2 The Bell Jar: What Causes Mental Illness Sylvia Plath’s semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar chronicles the protagonist Esther Greenwood’s decline into mental illness.Throughout the novel, Esther becomes increasingly depressed and suicidal, but it is never explicitly stated what is the actual factor that is causing her such torment. Although the focus of the entire novel is Esther’s psychological deterioration, the question of what it is exactly that causes a person to go mad is constantly posed. Realistically, the mind is complex beyond our understanding, and that of each person’s differs significantly, but there must be a common element that triggers depression. Esther’s circumstance exemplifies the notion that a lack of identity is detrimental to a human being’s mental health. Despite the fact that the precise cause of her depression is never stated, when examined, it is clear that Esther’s anguish roots from the fact that she is unable to find her place in society. Because she is unsure of the type of person she is and therefore the role she fits into, Esther does not have the ability to feel comfortable in the world, and because of this, is miserable being a part of it. Esther is first seen questioning her role in society when she is in New York. During this time, she is split between two types of friends. There is Doreen, who is dangerous and outgoing, and there is Betsy, who...

It was 1.30pm when class started, ready with the presentation and our team wearing professional dress code, we walked in to do our best. Our team was the last to present. All were shocked listen on what we are going to present. None of our friends knew what we are up to. Dewmini starting on she explained about “HOW TO CHEAT ON A TEST?” all our classmates were very happy to get some tips on how to cheat. Dewmini did an awesome job and then I got the chance to give the tips. When I went in front of others to do it, I was nervous and stressed to get it done perfectly. To my own judgment I did not do my best towards my team. Following me Shashendran came I and did his part well. Everything was well done and we were waiting for the comments and the points. It was really an exciting moment that we had won the competition and accordingly with that the comments were; Dewmini did an excellent presentation so she got 95, I got 85 because of my negative choice of words, nervousness and for the small mistakes that I made & Shashendran he got 55 because he was not ready for the presentation and he did consider that as a big deal and he did not practice it.

Cookie Jar Reserves

...CONSERVATIVE RECOGNITION OR COOKIE JAR RESERVES Robin Turner Summary Two months after graduating from college Nick O'Brien started to work in the accounting department at his aunt's software company. While going over some financial statements Nick notices what he believes are revenue recognition issues. Since Nick believes that Lee Marchetti the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of O'Brien Software is an honest man, he decides to have a discussion with him about what he believes are revenue recognition issues. Mr. Marchetti explains to Nick that accounting is not an exact science and that it involves a lot of judgment calls and that O'Brien Software's "deferrals and estimates are well documented and in accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules" (Conservative Recognition or Cookie Jar Reserves, Carpenter p. 3). After speaking with Mr. Marchetti, Nick decided to still speak with his aunt Amelia about his concerns. Amelia expressed to Nick that she was not very good when it came to accounting matters but she was educated when it came to recognizing revenue and that she believed being conservative was better than overstating. However, she asked Nick if he thought she should mention what he found to the audit committee. Issues/Questions One question that should be addressed surrounds why the CEO Amelia is not aware of certain financial aspects of her business. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires the chief executive officer (CEO) and the chief......

...Times may be excellent ways of learning what is happening in the world, they are no substitute for scholarly articles in peer-review journals. Therefore, the accuracy of the stories can be harder to discern. 2. How do you approach research? When approaching research, I identify a subject and make sub-subjects and add topics and provide details to each topic. By doing this, I have an organized structure of my subject, with different pieces of information supporting it. When conducting research, a good initial step is to compile a list of relevant literature. A second step is to scan the references to locate relevant articles. A third effective strategy is to Google relevant topics, especially useful resources for information on just about any scholar topic you can imagine. 3. What are the biggest challenges in doing research? The biggest challenges when approaching research I face is finding a reliable source for information. Using incorrect information is not acceptable. Websites such as Wikipedia should also never be used or cited as academic works because the sources are not delineated clearly enough to critique. In addition, Internet sources are so variable. At the one sites where bona fide educational group provide information compiled by groups of scholars or educators based on current and reliable literature. 4. What are some tips that you think will help you and others in conducting research? Always chose a good source. And make sure that sources......

Bell Jar

...Period D English The Theme of “Identity” In The Bell Jar Humans’ lives are shaped by success and failure within their personal life, and their relationships with one another. This is expressed in The Bell Jar, a novel written by Sylvia Plath. Plath is concerned almost entirely with the education and maturation of the novel’s main character, Esther Greenwood. The Bell Jar uses a chronological structure to constantly keep Esther in focus. Though significant, the other characters are secondary to Esther and her developing character. As Esther’s character develops, she becomes more central and relatable to the reader. The reader tends to sympathize with Esther’s character. We all at one time have felt that we just did not quite fit in. Esther tries to adjust herself to those that surround her by observing different personalities and trying to find the right one for her. We lose respect for ourselves if we allow others to determine who we are and who we ought to be. Esther’s dive into depression has made her unsure and unsatisfied with the world around her. This leads her thoughts to become dark and eventually attempt suicide. But this novel is much more than a story about suicide, it is a journey that inspires a new beginning, mentally and spiritually. In The Bell Jar, Esther Greenwood’s struggle to deal with the pressures of social and personal life lead her into a dark place full of negative thoughts and depression. Esther feels trapped in her own mind with no escape......

Bell Jar

...norm. The Bell Jar, written by Sylvia Plath, is an outstanding novel which depicts the modernist era as a whole. Sylvia Plath takes her readers through the mind of a young girl in her twenties, Esther, whose stability and sanity slowly start to slip away. Esther’s trouble starts within her mind but become magnified when external factors start to interfere. She disconnects herself from society and as her mind regresses; her hope of reaching sanity starts to diminish as well. Throughout the novel, Esther struggles with finding herself in a society filled with uncertainty. Sylvia Plath was able to create the perfect character to reveal her attitude towards new modernist view through her literary techniques, symbolism, and was able to intertwine reality with lunacy, creating the perfect modernist piece of literature. The modern era was composed of many elements in which authors incorporated a variety of literary techniques. The use of stream of consciousness, juxtaposition of ideas, staccato sentences, and symbolism was what led the modern era to success. The shifting outlook authors had during this era was like a chain reaction, and writers began to utilize these techniques to create a novel which was considered to be taboo. Sylvia Plath uses many symbols throughout The Bell Jar to represent various intangible concepts. Esther often feels disconnected from the real world and feels trapped in a bell jar, where her outlook on life is distorted. A bell jar is an......

Cookie Jar

...“Cookie Jar” Andrew D. Ross GEN/200 29Jan2014 Meagan Jones “Cookie Jar” Reflections and Thoughts on Personal Responsibility By: Andrew D. Ross Personal responsibility can also be seen as accountability, which is defined by Merriam-Webster as "the quality or state of being accountable; especially : an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions." This should mean that to be accountable for yourself, you would admit to your mistakes, make an effort to make those mistakes right, and live in a way that does not harm others whenever possible. “Personal responsibility is the willingness to both accept the importance of standards that society establishes for individual behavior and to make strenuous personal efforts to live by those standards. But personal responsibility also means that when individuals fail to meet expected standards, they do not look around for some factor outside themselves to blame. The demise of personal responsibility occurs when individuals blame their family, their peers, their economic circumstances, or their society for their own failure to meet standards. The three areas of personal decision making in which the nation’s youth and young adults most need to learn and practice personal responsibility are education, sexual behavior and marriage, and work.” Haskins, R. (2009). Brookings. Retrieved from http://www.brookings.edu/research/articles/2009/07/09-responsibility-haskins# This is just a......

But, a good parent accepts their imperfections and be a good role model for their children and the important things is try your best to be good and no need be perfect. “Parents who expect too much from themselves are typically too hard on themselves and end up feeling drained and inadequate.

Most of us still thinks what way or idea that might help us to manage children. They are several tips that I can share with all of you. First, let them be. Let your children become whatever they have to become. Don’t try to mold them according to your perception. Your children should do something that will lead or help them in their progress. For example, if your children want to play with sand. Let them play. Don’t try to stop them because this will stop their progress plus play with sand will help their hand coordination. Let them face the real sand, touch the sand and explain to them about sand and answer their question. Children should face with the real situation. Let them do their homework or any things in their way. The other example, if your children fail in any subject or get the lowest marks or fail in doing......

...TIPS Find an aloe-vera plant in your vicinity. Now, just break a leaf, break it into two and use the extract or the juice mixed with natural rose water for best skin protection from tanning and clogging. This also helps to overcome the skin allergies, rashes and itching. • Potatoes are one of the ancient remedies to strip the skin from dead cells. Some nutrients from this common vegetable can break down the grease inside the skin pores, this way enhancing the efficient elimination. • In fact all you have to do is place a slice of it on the whitehead and leave it on for a few minutes, you can then rinse off the area with tepid water. The effect of the treatment will resemble that of an exfoliation when the pores are freed from the clogging agents. • Apples have almost the same banishing power over whiteheads as tomatoes. However in order to have a smashing effect crush the apples and mix them with 3 tbs of honey. Make a fine paste of it and apply it to your face or only the affected area. • Leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse it off with lukewarm water. The two ingredients will complete • each other increasing the effect of the facial to eliminate the harmful toxins from the pores. • Milk is another ingredient that can be found in almost all households.
