My body weak and my eyes hazy. They must have drugged me. The smell of antiseptic violated my nostrils, making me feel nauseous. I tried to sit up, my body sluggish, but I couldn’t move. Taking deep breaths, I tried to look at the rest of my body and saw leather straps binding my arms, waist, and legs to the sides of the rigid bed I was on. I heard drilling again, but this time much closer. The vibrations seemed to bounce off the walls and into my skull. Looking around the small room I found it was unoccupied except for myself. To the right of the bed was a trolley, with an array of dangerous and sharp looking medical equipment. The tray was just under a metre away from the bed. Just close enough if I could manage to stretch out to it. Shuffling up the bed as much as possible, till the straps were straining on my wrists, I attempted to sit up again. This time managing to elevate my head and torso. Leaning to the side where the tray was, I desperately tried to reach it. My brushed the edge. The cool metal freezing on my bare forehead. Using my forehead, I carefully tried to move the tray closer. Excruciatingly slow, it moved a centimetre. Then another, until I could just reach the tools with my mouth. "Является предметом проснулась?" Voices drifted in from just outside the room. Trying not to panic, I quickly picked up the closest tool and lay back down, carefully dropping it near my arm in the process. I tried to slow my rapid breathing as a door
O’Brien culminates The Things They Carried with “The Lives of the Dead,” which includes a story about a girl named Linda that is at first seemingly unrelated to the overall plot. O’Brien discusses the story of Linda, a girl who he fell in love with in elementary school who succumbed to cancer. He had a deep connection with her, and found himself relishing sleep so he could dream endlessly about Linda. O’Brien then connects this story to those revolving the occurrences of Vietnam. He reveals yet another purpose of telling war stories: not to simply show readers what war in Vietnam was like, but to “revive…that which is absolute and unchanging” (O’Brien 224). Telling war stories serves as a way of “making the dead seem not quite so dead” (O’Brien
I had been cringing about day for so long. I was completely terrified to go into that room. As the door opened I was exposed to a cold draft and I could feel the dense air. The day I was told this needed to be done was horrifying, and now it’s actually happening. They rolled me over to a new bed and I looked around seeing doctors everywhere. There was a table that they rolled next to me and on it was things that I can’t even explain. They put a green mask on me with tubes going through both sides of it. They told me I’d get drowsy and all of the sudden I closed my eyes and it was happening. I was getting knee surgery.
It was my first time in the second floor OR and I was placed there alone. I went to found Ronny and told him that it is my first time in the OR. He told me that when I go into the OR I must always have a surgical bouffant on. We went to a room in the OR where he gave me a walkie-talkie, this always the front desk to contact me when there is a patient pick-up. He said that it must be on channel one at all times and that the volume should not be loud enough to disturb other that I can hear loud and clear. As I understood him a nurse for help called him for something. As I was waiting for a patient pick-up Ronnie was walking out of the OR telling me that he will be back as soon as possible. As soon as he left there was a call for a patient pick-up.
My surgeon, Dr. Mainigi came back into the room with two other doctors and she told me that it was time for me to be wheeled away. I said my “I love you’s” to my family as one of the male doctors wheeled me away. He was asking me questions, trying to ease my nerves a little bit. We finally reached the operating room. I transferred from the hospital bed to the operating table. My heart was beating so fast, as I realized this was really happening. There were at least 10 doctors in the room and there was a light above me shining down on me. Dr. Mainigi anesthetized me and before I knew it, I saw
As my sweaty hands lay on top of my stomach, I glanced at what seemed to be the end of the machine. The only section that was lit and in my mind, the only part of me that was safe. I had gone through this twice already, but I hadn’t made it inside the MRI machine and never thought I would.
Some say that people never change. They may be right, but no one really knows. What people do know is that every living person has one thing in common, something that will never change. Everyone will die, there’s no way around it. Every “new” and “old” generation will succumb to the same ghastly fate. The differences in the “old” generation and “new” generation sometimes collide in life. The contrast between generations in James Joyce’s “The Dead” is similar to the contrast in the generations today. The “baby boomer” generation is the old fashioned generation preoccupied with hospitality and tradition, where as, “generation x” is the new generation, preoccupied with knowledge and intellect.
“My office is right at the back of the clinic, I saw what was happening on the news and took precautions before they tried to check this room. They think the door won’t open because the room is empty and if you don’t mind me being quiet, I’d like to let them keep thinking that.” He grumbled.
In the articles "Whispers from the Grave" by Katia Bachko and "The Haunted House" by Valerie Worth it mentions how even before scary horror movies where made, people where almost addicted to scary stories, scary movies, and scary things in general. In the article "Whispers from the Grave," it talks about how back in the day people would love to have a medium come to their house, it was like having a celebrity in your house, and when a medan was in the state word spread very quickly. The article says “In Sarah's day—before movies or television—visiting a medium was an extremely popular form of entertainment. Many Americans thought it was possible to communicate vdth the spirits of those who had died. Mediums like Adam Coons were thought to be bridges to the "other side"—that is, the unknown world beyond the grave.
According to Anna March from Salon.com, in 2013, Detective Dave Davis reviewed the case and thought Lloyd Welch needed further investigation. He found Welch's 1977 mug shot and connected it to the long-dismissed sketch of the suspect that a witness described. In a recent interview with investigators, court papers say, Welch admitted that he was the long-haired man confronted by the sisters’ friend.
When the cops finally arrived, they determined that he had been drinking, and somehow slipped on a rug and fallen down the stairs. In their report they wrote that the house was empty because the servants had fled, afraid they’d be blamed for his death. They never did find his wife. So his death remained a mystery.
This is the first evaluation essay, and it is in a book that the readers have read called the Nuit of the Living Dead. The story had the readers in countless suspense, especially the part when the setting takes place at the time of the zombie apocalypse. However, numerous people have been wondering the same question all their lives, which is this: “How do you understand your own identity, and how does it relate to the communities you are a part of?” and the question remains unanswered to this day, until now. (Center for Civic Reflection) The four topics that shall stand as the supports of this essay, which will help us with this question, and the four topics are the following themes listed: Loneliness, Paranoia, Fear, and Conditioning. (MoreStories102) Although the title of the story would make people assume that this is a horror story, it certainly is not. This story is just about a middle-aged man who is trying to keep himself busy at night, as he was afraid that the zombies would attack him. As he attempts to help a mouse in putting it out of its misery, a van pulls up with an older driver coming out asking for directions since he got lost. (Nuit of the Living Dead 452)
