Tina McElroy Ansa’s article, “The Center of the Universe” discusses her childhood. Ansa thesis is “When I write, I still envasion myself standing at the fountain surrounded by my family, my community, my hometown, my state, my country, and the world.” The point Ansa is trying to make is that your childhood shapes your adulthood and your views on the world of being an American. Ansa was raised in the south in Macon, Georgia which was her center of the universe. He childhood was different then many in the south. She was a product of Americanization by the way the segregation and discrimination was not present at this time. She saw firsthand how whites gave her a better treatment then they would as she was their daughter. This helped her see the world other then black and white. See saw that people were all the same and just in the universe for the same reasons as many people. Being the last one in the family she had the duties to past on family traditions. She expresses herself talking about no matter where she goes or what had happened her life and lifestyle are strongly affected by her uprising. If it wasn’t for her taking on her family traditions and prior ways of life they may become faint and then she would have less and possibly little identity to whom she was as herself. In the analysis of this reading I interpreted it into it meaning that you should not forget where you came from. No matter what happened in life your uprising was because of your family traditions and values so continue to continue to keep your family
Home Sweet Home
There is no place like my home. My home is a welcoming and secure environment that is perfect for both entertaining guests and just a quiet night of pure relaxation. My home is a place where I find myself feeling safe and loved. The interior and exterior of my house is very unique, because my dad designed it, and I am very grateful to live where I do.
As I cruise down Riverton Drive I pass by my old high school, James River. Before turning onto my street, just ahead is the entrance….
"Home Sweet Home"
There are hundreds of people, young and old that live in my apartment complex and each of them have a different and unique story to share. My story is that I come from the typical middle-of -nowhere suburbia, where the grass is always green, and all of the houses look the same. In that community it is easy to become too comfortable, and forget that things aren't so "perfect" in the rest of the world. When my step-dad past away, we sold the house and moved into town changing….
like you’re safe? Guns? Money? Your spouse? Your brilliant plan? Your family? I feel most safe when I am staying with my family at home. My home is just like my heaven. Homes, what does it mean? To some people it means a box in an alley with hardly any food, water and with no money. To me, home means where you can be with your family and friends and worship God. In my home I can be with my friends, family, and I can worship God. It will bring me peace and comfort, and will be calm. I can do anything….
Woof. Woof woof.
The consistent barking of my neighbor’s dog awakens me. I look outside the window only to realize its just 5 o’clock in the morning. Four hours before I need to get ready to head out with my family for a Sunday outing. “No use hitting the pillow now. I won’t be able to sleep anyhow.”, I tell myself. Having no clue how to spend these 5 hours, I start walking around my house.
My room, with its orange hues, is the brightest one of all the rooms. Be it summer, winter or monsoon….
Home, My Sweet Home
I don’t know the meaning of the word “ordinary”. Ordinary. Some regard mundane as dull, but some do not. I love uniqueness, but also love commonness. I believe that there is a bountiful criterion for “ordinary”. I thought my life was quotidian, before I faced a new life with a new family. My life was quite different with them, but their life was normal, too. After all this happened, I pondered about the definition of “ordinary” and the “ordinary” life.
I was just an audacious….
4. What new information do we learn about Sweet Home in this chapter, specifically about Denver’s birth?
In this chapter, we learn that Sethe was already pregnant with Denver when she ran away from Sweet Home. By the time when Sethe collapsed her feet in the woods, a white girl Amy Denver had found Sethe. Due to Sethe’s fear about Sweet Home, she told Amy Denver a false name- “Lu”, because if she were caught, she would be returned to Sweet Home, and she would continue experiencing her previous painful….

You will learn….
refers to him and the other slaves on the plantation as the “Sweet Home Men” as opposed to the “Sweet Home Slaves”. Though this may initially portray the Garner’s in a benevolent light, the implications of Mr. Garner’s statement become convoluted. By distinguishing his slaves as “men”, it suggests that manhood does not already exist intrinsically within slaves, but instead becomes a privilege specifically imparted onto the five men of Sweet….
Movies have always played an alternative to books. At times similar story lines are evident as one watches an excess of movies in a particular genre. The similarity is obvious in "Sweet Home Alabama" and "The Notebook" since in both there is a seven year absence period for the couples, their choices in the types of lives they want to live are uncanny in appearance and the two girl 's reasoning towards the end of the movie are the same. The differences are plenty and they include the genre of the….
At home but not at home
The main aim of the article is showing that in case of migrants (specifically Filipinas in Honk Kong) the concept of home is not as simple and unambiguous as it may seem.
Constable presents different conceptualizations of the notions “space”, “place” and “home”. He follows the conception of Ackbar Abbas, who writes, "We think of a place in terms of definable physical characteristics and situatedness, at most as a symbolic structure. A space by contrast….
