I am reluctant to write about you raping me. It is the type of thing that puts people so very on edge, edge of their seats, clinging to the edge, need a drink to take the edge off kind of edge.

Before you raped me, I was vibrant in the worst kind of way. I moved like I was a dancer and danced like I was terrible in bed. But I was not a walking contradiction because to say that would be cliche and I was no cliche.

It's true that most of the time I was being watched, like I was this little vibrant spec in the middle of a sea of black umbrellas and suits. A vibrant spec that was undeniably watched. If you were watching something special, something that rose to the top in a bubble, then you might have been watching me. I wonder now if you chose me for this reason.

Those days, I had a smell so very few ever forgot although they never even really knew it. I would try and leave my scent wherever I went, my bakery-sweet sweat to linger in white cotton curtains that blew in gusts, or silk tablecloths spoiled with red wine, or sheets - dirty with sex juice. It was a scent that reminded people of the worst kind of girl, one who lies and cheats and has found the perfect rhythm and swing of her gait because she's figured out the power of her own hips. My scent would collect people like a flies to sticky paper. I would leave them in my wake. That is how it was with me, then.

In time they would all get over it, like a death or a birth or all those things that happen in between, but every so often a gust of wind would pass, or a fork would drop to the floor, and it would somehow stir up a memory of me that they thought was settled. An atom of me, a fraction of a drop of my sweet sweat would soar in suddenly and cling to one hair right inside of their nose. And it would be enough to make them blow up, it would be enough to make them throw up, it would be enough to…...

Your My Inspiration

...you today to just say thank you. Thank you for the inspiration u have given me to continue track and inspire to work hard on basketball and possibly football come fall. You inspire me to never give up, work hard, and be the best I can be. I plan to focus and work on my road ahead as soon as the weather warms up a little bit. You inspire me to become great whether it be with sports or academics. I don’t really know why I think this but there is just something about you that pushes me to achieve great things. Because of you, I set some personal goals that I would like your help to achieve them. One goal is to make the basketball team and be a starter for most of the games. Two, work out to improve my overall health and really get me prepared for next year. Lastly, I would like your help just to push me in anything I do such as sports and schooling. Through your inspiration, I have become a better person if though it may not be noticeable right now. I have the willingness and the heart to strive for what I want and believe in. From the support I was given about not making the basketball team, it opened my eyes and I realized that I have to work for what I want. That why I want your help, I’m ready to get prepared for basketball and football and I’m ready to work out and become bigger but I need someone to push me. Overall I just want to thank you for what you have done and given to me, I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have you in my life and as my Uncle. After working......

A Letter to My Dearest Friend John Smith

...October 2012 A Letter to My Dearest Friend John Smith September 15, 1616 Dear John, Since I have met you I, Matoaka (Pocahontas), have matured into a great woman. Most people know me as "the most dear and well-beloved," but other people (Powhaton Tribe Members) still think of me as "the devil child or playful-one." In my opinion I am just a strong, resilient, self sacrificing, and overly caring lady of the Tidewater Region. Therefore embracing my new lifestyle as a Christian wife and mother is easy. When I was growing up in Werowocomoco which is about twelve miles outside Jamestown, Virginia I learned what I thought were necessary skills to being a good wife and mother but not how to be a colonial wife and mother. Being a colonial wife and mother means cooking, cleaning, sewing, making clothing, and assisting in raising baby Thomas to be a great man. In contrast to my tribes way of life where the good wife and mother constructs the house and everything associated with it, cooking and preparing food, gathering firewood, collecting water, rearing children, making clothing, planting, harvesting, making useful items (baskets, pots, wooden spoons), processing meats, tanning hides, and collecting plants. Apparently being a Powhaton mother and wife is harder than being a colonial one. I am really enjoying all the free time. In regards to my feelings I think I am finally in love with my husband John Rolfe. Even though I was forced to marry him for peace between my......

My Hardship Letter

...Hard Ship Letter    I am writing this letter to explain to you about my current situation that is going from bad to worse. This continued hardship has crippled my ability to pay for my mortgage on this house.   Since the beginning of 2009, I had lost a career and regained a much lesser paying job and my income has been greatly reduced. In addition, there were 11 months of vacancy at this property which I tried desperately to fill up. Then, as of January 2009, we finally got a new tenant but the tenant was only able to pay two-thirds of the monthly rent, and I had to come up with the rest of the monthly mortgage amount. Besides that, I had other personal loans and debts which I am still paying off.   I have tried to refinance this property but I was unable to do so because of the drastic market drop. I have been trying to keep up with the mortgage payments using my savings up to this point, hoping that the economy will recover soon. At this time, my savings are gone and I know that I am not able to pay the mortgage with this high rate of interest.  I tried to pay the partial amount for this monthly mortgage but your bank did not accept my partial mortgage payments. I tried to do loan modification and was turned down by your bank.  Now, I am requesting that you allow me to do short sale on this property and post pone the trustee sale date, scheduled to be effective on 10/05/2009, so that I can salvage this house value and make the short sale payments to your bank.   I......

Letter to My Child

...Do you know who you are? Seems like a crazy question, but it is real. You are my greatest gift from God. You are not only my greatest gift; you are apart of God's greatest creation. This is a stressful time for you. Your body is going through so many unfamiliar changes. These changes are probably super uncomfortable for you. These changes are called puberty. Believe it or not, mom went through these same feelings that you are going through right now. Looks like you will be putting on a bra pretty soon. If you have not already, expect to feel some tenderness around your chest and nipple area. Do not panic! You do not have breast cancer. You will have boobs soon. This is just the beginning of you blossoming into a beautiful young lady. The sensitivity in that area will go away. Also, get ready to wake up one of thes mornings to have grown more inches than you ever have in your life. "Puberty" brings forth the fastest increases in your growing since you were a baby. (70, Santrock) Both of your grandmothers and I reached a height of about 5'5, 5'6. You will more than likely reach these heights too, due to heredity. You will gain a few pounds to go along with those new inches. This is not a bad thing. This is a great reason to go shopping! Shopping for new bra's, shirts, pants and panties. Yes, new panties are going to be needed also. When there are changes up there, there will also be changes down there too. These changes are very natural. Embarrassing, but natural. Everyone goes...

A Recycling Letter to My Headteacher

...Dear Ms Jackson, Thank you for your time and willingness to listen to the issues I raised regarding the use of Sixth Formers’ 2-hour period for the E3 program. I have recently discovered it is a concern shared by and affecting many students, some of whom prefer to revise during these hours. Therefore, for many including myself, the E3 period is proving to be a burden more than an effective use of time that could be benefitting us as individuals as well as our means of furthering in life after Sixth Form (CV, applications, records, etc). Below I outline the proposed E3 program and ideas for how the period could be used that would prove as or even more useful than revising for our subjects. Health and Wellbeing All activities proposed for this area are essentially P.E options. Since 2 hours of our timetable are assigned to mandatory P.E activities, I think as well as existing options we should be able to choose from more activities not limited to sports. Keeping with the idea of health and wellbeing, we can: * Have sessions addressing stress and how to deal with it (possibly sessions helping us DEAL with stress directly rather than just suggesting ways how to) * Sessions to build motivation * Sessions addressing depression/other issues affecting wellbeing of students Other relevant topics/skills that benefits our general wellbeing/life: * Learning about taxes/mortgages/financial matters in real life * Specifically, student finances – e.g for......

Molestors and Rapists

...Alixandrea Carter Dr. Cooper 20 March 2011 Crime Causation Title Page Research Paper: Molesters and Rapist Normal people have questions and often ask why a molester becomes a molester and why a rapist becomes a rapist? What goes through their minds’ to make them want to harm children or other people? What kind of help can they get and can they ever be cured? People who become sexual molesters’, predators’’, and rapists’ usually have gone through some type of sexual abuse and/or have been raped as a child. From childhood to adulthood we will see how the abuse that one has went through during childhood and may/can affect them as through adulthood, causing them to become a sexual molester and rapist themselves. Molesting one’s own child/children and family members is called intra-famial. They normally don’t go outside the family because they think that they can persuade the child/children not to report them to the police. Pedophilia is the sexual attraction to children and they desire children, they usually work very close with kids like at the YMCA, schools, and church. Pedophiles’ normally don’t have children or families. They are sexually violent offenders are the perpetrators who are most violent. My hypothesis is the children who are molested or raped grow up to become molesters and rapists who keep the cycle going, rather than getting help. Children are the main victims in today’s society to molestation and rape, one reason being is that they are the......

An Open Letter to My Former Other Half

...To my former Other Half, When I was asked to write for the Writers Guild’s current topic: Choices and Chances, I was initially thinking of writing something that would inspire me to give myself a chance to love once again. Instead, I decided to take the chance to write this letter for you. Let me start this by admitting to you that your love was remarkably one of the most wonderful experiences in my life, there’s no way I can put into words the love I felt from you and what I might also be still feeling from you until now. I looked over the pain that caused us, the mistakes made, because you were never the kind of person who keeps ill-feelings for others, but I am your exact opposite. I find it hard to forgive and forget. All this time, I’ve been holding onto the idea, that after getting over all this trouble, we are finally meant to be together. I would always remember the lines I’ve read from one of Paulo Coelho’s book, stating a quote from I Ching: “It says that a city can be moved but not a well. It’s around the well that lovers find each other, satisfy their thirst, build homes, and raise their children. But if one of them decides to leave, the well cannot go with them. Love remains there, abandoned – even though it is filled with the same pure water as before.” I knew you’ll always be a part of what I have made myself as of this time. I poured my happiness and dreams with you. You were supposed to be a part of my future, but it was all shattered with that......

My Story(an Application Letter)

...When I was younger, I used to take pens, small parts of different machines, flowers, leaves and many other things apart to put them back together, so that I could see how each piece, however unimportant the piece seemed, fit together to create a working object. As I progressed in my school life, my interest in applying this in real life increased. It always fascinated me how even the lack of the smallest organism could tamper the ecosystem just like a spring toy that does not work properly if the spring is slightly bent. After Grade 10, I took up pure sciences- Biology, Physics and Chemistry as well as Mathematics and English. My passion for biology was keenly supported by all my chosen subjects. Chemistry helped me understand the molecular structures while Physics and Mathematics helped me understand the dynamics and statistics that we were provided with. Being an avid reader, has led to the formation of many ideas which I feel can be expressed on gaining more insight. A degree in Biological Sciences will help me reach my dream. Earlier this year, three of my friends and I participated in NTU Science Symposium. We had to write a research paper in any field of science. The four of us love biology and felt that we would be able to express our skills and knowledge through the paper and came up with the topic 'External Factors Affecting Bacterial Growth'. The research paper certainly tested our abilities to work as a team. We had to submit the paper in May and all of us had......
