The average ACT score to be accepted to UGA ranges from 26-31 (“Compare Colleges”), and the average at Vanderbilt ranges from 32-35 (“Compare Colleges”). My ACT composite score is 31, but I have only taken it once and plan to raise my score. I believe that I will have an ACT score within or above the ranges for both UGA and Vanderbilt. In addition to looking at ACT scores, UGA and Vanderbilt look at GPA, course rigor, and a holistic view of the student to determine admission (“Applying to Vanderbilt”; “First-Year Applicants”). My cumulative high school GPA is 4.41 and by the end of my junior year I will have taken six AP classes, so I feel that I will have a good chance of being accepted at both of these colleges.
Werewolves a very well-known fantasy creature, who have been depicted as vicious beasts who will turn on their best friends. In the lay “Bisclavret” the stereotypes of werewolves is no different. Marie de France redefines the werewolf in a very courageous tale of a man and his loyalty. Bisclavret was a very loyal man regardless being werewolf or not. This was shown in multiple scenarios, such as the interaction with his and wife and with the King. The O.E.D. defines loyalty as “Faithful adherence to one's promise, oath, word of honor” (def.1). Throughout the entire story Bisclavret is faithful to everyone he made an oath too. Others have to break
“Cosette, how are things looking tonight?” Colter stepped up to the bakery counter and waited patiently for his usual: a double bacon, double perception breakfast biscuit with an over easy egg and a shot of fair-trade espresso. When we was a young monster hunter, the night was his playground. These days he had more knowledge under his belt, but far less ability to stay in-tune in the wee hours of the night.

The color red represents nonconformity, standing out or being unique This is because of the narrator’s unwillingness to be a unique girl.

Desiree shook her head and smiled, "You didn't scare me, in fact last night was the first night I wasn't afraid to sleep. I just couldn't. I didn't take any of the meds the doctors gave me. They normally knock me out, like a coma almost. I stopped dreaming, or more actually I stopped traveling I guess." Desiree had no idea what to call her ability. But she knew the medicine that doctors made her take stopped them. "I guess I should expect a lot of insomnia in my future." she laughed softly before kissing Razio once more.
Jessie tried to do the math in his head and came to the conclusion that the redhead was probably a lot smarter than he was. "Sooo, how smart are you little one?" He didn't have time to get his answer that she was already jumping up and down in front of the hot dog stand. "Give her whatever she wants," he asked the vendor. Something kept nagging at him and it took him a few second to find out why exactly. "I'm sorry to be so personal, but why wouldn't your dad want for you to go surfing? You are obviously an overachiever and he must be really proud of you, so what is it? Is he afraid that you would hurt yourself?' Jessie paid for the food and waited for her answer by taking a large bite of his hot
The blonde knows better than to become stiff at a question like this. Instead, she draws one of her hands onto the cold grey table and taps her fingers gently on the surface. While she brings her other hand to rest under her chin. Fleurette tries to think of a moment when she didn’t have a run in with the law. When faced with the danger of being imprisoned or fined, her water works would pave the way to victory. It was cliche to say the least, but behind her faux tears and her weak pleading, she put on a beautiful show. She was a temptress to the law and once they fell for her act, a gentle calming smile would form on her lips. Her face would read thank you, but her mind read you fool. You’re all fools. Clearing her throat she stopped her light drumming and brought both her hands to rest on the table together. “Non, non.

Just 252 miles from Paris lies a small town called Dinan. In a 132 foot high tower, it feels like being on top of the world, as if everything is visible. In Paris, France on the lake Lac Daumesnil, many tourists are on boats staring in wonderment at the colorful fish and the swans who are gracefully swimming without disturbing each other. While visiting the Catacombs of Paris it was chilling to see that many skeletons. There was that slight moment of fear while walking past the door that leads to Hell just knowing if you took one too many steps towards it then there would no longer be light, friends, or family to see; only darkness... Then suddenly, pulled back into reality the tour is over and there’s sunlight everywhere. While walking about
The overarching trauma of this novel is highlighted by Celie’s relationship with Shug Avery. Though the brutality continues, Celie still manages to find an escape allowing her to come closer to the line of thriving. For Celie her first notion of Shug comes from her abusive husband's obsession with the singer. Her growing sense of imagination and curiosity began to develop a more nuanced character. The reader is given a new looking at the character; Celie crosses the threshold of survival to thriving only for a few fleeting seconds. Our first encounter of this diminishing joy unfortunately encapsulated a well-rounded sense of author's purpose. “And then I think about Shug Avery. I know what he doing to be done to Shug Avery and maybe she like it. I put my arm around him”(Walker, 12). There are several key elements that the author has intentionally created. The first being the motif of sex, for Celie sex has been a brutal massacring for her body, which resulted in two heartbreaking children. While these children were taken from her and killed, Walker highlights the wedding night sex scene shifting from brutal to sad. The reader can clearly see that the idea of Shug is what allows Celie to escape from her horrid reality. As Charmaine Eddy notes in his paper entitled Marking the body: the material dislocation of gender in Alice Walker's The Color Purple “Because Shug's picture has initiated lesbian sexual desire in Celie, this imitation must be seen as a transvestism, a drag
