    clock is a reminder of something you've gained here. Pay attention, so when you hear them later in life you will remember. When you hear a bell ring, remember our first day of school, back in September of 2008. The coolness of the desks chilled our sun-tanned skin as we sat timidly in our seats, quietly absorbing the shrill sound of our first high school bell as it rang at 7:30 in the morning.

    In Platizky’s (1999) article on the Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Alan Poe is choppy and, sometimes, wandering critique.

    My moment of self discovery was a coincidence. It was August 13th and it occurred right after my shift was over in Burger King. It started when I was going to Liberty bell gas station to hang out with my friends Julia and Deanne.

Julia was pale and had green hair but a green that resembled the statue of liberty. I met her through Deanne around January of 2017 and

    Revelation By : Hunter Newell I had only been in school for a mere few hours, but the reality had already started to settle in. My first four hours of the day were nothing to stress about, they were as easy as sinking a layup, but as the day went on, my eyes got heavier and the classes only got harder. I thought after listening to my first four teachers talk, that things were going to be as easy as last year, I thought I wouldn’t have to stress, and it would be a cakewalk once again, I thought

    The time of the Victorians marked the start of the supernatural, which very importantly happened between 1750 to 1950. A main factor which caused the Victorians to believe in so much about the super natural was down to a big part to play in religion.
