write a story about how you're counting cards in order to pay for college.
i don't agree with that at all. i think it's extremely rare for a 17 year old to be able to sit down and write an essay that could easily be the deciding factor of whether or not they are accepted into a college without some uncertainty regarding the topic of choice.Sign #1 that college may not be for you. "Uhh, like, I can't think of an essay topic."
that about sums it up.motherfucker at 17 in the suburbs i had no lifechanging experiences.
brilliant post.that is YOUR history, that is who you are, that is what made you the person you are today; what greater topic can you write, and what topic do you know more about, than that of yourself? yes, your direct reactions can affect HOW you write it, but the gist will always be the same.
you have all the raw materials for the great american novel there; character flaws, lonliness/isolation and not understanding, and yet your character overcomes these limitations, deals with them, and learns to accept them, your only catch there is a finalized summation of what you define yourself as and how you want to be from that point on. the lives we all live are the greatest stories we ever tell or hear.
thanks. i'll keep working on it.intro and first body paragraph look good. i would work a little more on that last paragraph though, i wish i could give you some tips right now, but im really way too high. to me, it see just seems like it would be better off as a concluding paragraph rather than a body paragraph. maybe add a body paragraph describing how you became more determined/sedulous through the lack of a father, as it isnt very clear in your current essay...
From Dictionary.commelancholy is a noun, melancholic is an adjective.
you're a worthless idiot. if you have nothing good to say, why do you waste your time and mine and come in here and make stupid posts like that?Tell them your dad had a feeble mind and a stripper took advantage of him
