Wearing only bathing suits, three girls walk into a store, causing chaos and forever altering one young man’s life. While the customers of the store scorn the girls’ immodesty, a cashier, Sammy, becomes greatly affected by them, intensifying his longing for change. He admires the
In the book Into the Wild the main character, Chris Mccandless, made a rational decision to exclude himself from human society because he believed that going beyond what his parents and society wanted he would live a happier life. Chris wanted to leave society and venture into the wilderness to find the true meaning of who he was. Chris Mccandless was neither crazy or ignorant to live off in the wild where there was no people or anything to interact with but nature. Chris wanted to find his inner self and not only was he a role model for kids all across the country but he also followed his dream. Even though it was selfish of him to leave his family, Chris Mccandless is not crazy because he followed his dream, lived his life the way he wanted to, and went into the wild to find who he truly was.
This excitement and nervousness compels Kathy to pursue all odds to become one of the grown-ups. This would appear to lead her away from individuality, but it ultimately, after finally being pushed over the edge into maturity, allows a more profound realization that she doesn’t need to conform.
He is different from all the other guys that she ever had a bad luck to know, but nonetheless all she wants of him is «a non-pressure bang, once a week, on the sly, with a man who's been through it all and is nicely cooled out.» (p. 40). She plays her role, she satisfies him like no other woman ever before, sho doesn't want anything else from him, no expectations, no feelings, no true relationship, she's becoming his Voluptas.
This is when she stops becoming a naive child and becomes a more self-aware person.
In the novel Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, Chris McCandless takes a wild journey. Although some believe that his journey and thought process was noble and courageous, he was actually extremely fatuous throughout his journey. Many people that Chris met along the way made remarkable attempts at making him aware of the dangers that he would surely face in Alaska. Chris McCandless knowingly stepped into the treacherous wild without being prepared for what reality would throw his way.

- Nick implies Myrtle’s personality changes because of her appearance change- she can’t think for herself and needs the clothing “with the influence of the dress her personality had undergone a change”.
She is more in control of what is happening, or has happened to her, and is beginning to harness herself as her own person, her own identity. She is not acting, or trying to be a certain type of person because everyone is telling her that "that" is who she is. Instead she is taking her identity and molding it; shaping it to fit who she is and who she has grown up to be.
Shawn Pogatchnik shows how important the fact that so many migrants are trying to flee to Germany and other EU countries by using statistics. Pogatchnik states that the EU countries “...has seen more than 332,000 migrants enter so far this year.” He also says that Germany “...is expecting to take in 800,000 migrants in this year.” When people read the article, they realize that what is going on must be bad enough for hundreds of thousands of people to want to flee their own country to enter another European country.
In this article the writer, Greg Silver, starts out by talking about a 25 year old waitress who has broken her arm, and has no insurance or money for the medical bills. Due to these reasons her arm healed on its own but healed crooked. This has caused it to be painful for her to hold a tray while working. She asked the writer what was she supposed to do. Greg Silver has been a primary care physician for 30 years now and he’s heard so many stories from Americans who don’t have insurance or the money for their medical bills, so they suffer in pain. “Even with the affordable care act we leave 28 million people without any coverage.” He talks about how we need a streamlined single-payer program that would provide universal coverage for everyone, “such as Rep. John Conyers’ House Resolution 676 and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Senate Bill 1804.”
Accordingly, Fantomina acts repetitively throughout the novel to gain the attention of Beauplaisir as a result of an identity crisis. This is relevant because she has a process of developing a character and subsequently seducing Beauplaisir, but she never realizes that she succumbs to each new role. Succumbing to the role almost as a method actor, she hides her true identity by burying beneath each character she embodies. Method acting tends to take a toll internally on a person and Fantomina is clearly affected, “she found herself involv’d in a Difficulty, which before never enter’d into her head”, she feels pulled into the role here and it reflects in her thoughts showing internal strife on how she initially uses her first character to interact with suitors (Haywood, 43). Therefore, Fantomina painstakingly undergoes a full transformation to become each identity to the fullest extent she can while discarding the previous layer of identity until her final true identity is revealed. Slowly, she peels away false attributes in the characters she acquires. As previously stated, the method of her embodiment of a role causes her to subconsciously adapt this persona as her own disguise. This method is how she can successfully adopt new alternative identities.
It not only threatens, but also breaks through. Betrayed by love once in her life, she nevertheless seeks it in the effort to fill the lonely void; thus, her promiscuity. But to adhere to her tradition and her sense of herself as a lady, she cannot face this sensual part of herself. She associates it with the animalism of Stanley's lovemaking and terms it “brutal desire”. She feels guilt and a sense of sin when she does surrender to it, and yet she does, out of intense loneliness. By viewing sensuality as brutal desire she is able to disassociate it from what she feels is her true self, but only at the price of an intense inner conflict. Since she cannot integrate these conflicting elements of desire and gentility, she tries to reject the one, desire, and live solely by the other. Desperately seeking a haven she looks increasingly to fantasy. Taking refuge in tinsel, fine clothes, and rhinestones, and the illusion that a beau is available whenever she wants him, she seeks tenderness and beauty in a world of her own making.

Chris Mccandless was a man that many would call crazy or maybe even immoral. He left everything to live in the wild and become “one with nature”. He had determination, a strong mindset, fearlessness and courage. I believe that my life and the life of Chris Mccandless are not similar in any aspect. In fact I wish that my life was more like his and that I had the drive and determination to do what he did.
