    Area of Study Essay- Journeys The Oxford Dictionary defines Journey as “an act of travelling from one place to another”; this could, of course, be taken literally. Instead, why not think of “places” as emotional or mental situations? So you take a journey between different emotional states. “The journey, not the arrival, matters.” This statement is correct for all four texts I will be discussing.

    A journey is imperative for personal growth and development. In Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ it outlines the inner journey Offred undertakes throughout her life in Gilead and her journey to survive in a repressive totalitarian regime. This journey is also evident in Martin Luther King’s speech ‘I Have a Dream’ and the Negro’s struggle for freedom. Examining these two texts I have come to appreciate and understand the concept of journeys. In order for Offred’s journey…

    The Journey Continuous Writing Essay We were quite a pair, silently waiting on the dusty train platform in the late afternoon. Clutching our rolling suitcases, we were unable to speak over the loud screeches and hisses of trains in Penn Station. There he was, my eighty year old grandfather with his massive shock of silvery hair and bushy eyebrows. Dressed in a plaid flannel shirt, which he insisted on wearing with suspenders, he was a unique sight in the middle of New York City. And there I was…

    Each person’s life is a journey on a contorted road dotted with bumps and craters. At certain points, the bumps could seem as high as mountains and the pits as deep as hell, making this journey called life appear quite despondent.

They could be positive traits, which could steer you on a more decent path; or negative…
