MONOLOGUE

Ten seconds left. I can barely hear anything. I feel the vomit creeping up in my throat as the milliseconds go by. Everything is getting very blurry. Tension is rising. Who would have thought that we would be down by one point and I would be the one trusted to hold this basketball? Why did my coach want me to shoot the last shot in the first place? What do I bring on this court that is any different from what my teammates would bring? Every face on my bench is almost frozen, their eyes locked on to me and the ball. There are hundreds of people in the stands watching my every move. Deep breath. Every little thing has to be on point. Nine seconds. I just want to pass the ball away over to my teammate, get rid of it. Why not? Who cares what my coach says? He’s the one who put me in this situation anyways. Eight seconds left. Its just too embarrassing to miss THE final shot in THE final game of the season. I have earned every second I stepped foot on this court and worked too hard for this shot to be a miss. All the time spent practicing and all the injuries, I just cant let myself and everyone down. Seven seconds. I see everyone in the stands jumping up and down but can barely hear them. What do they want from me? i’m 18 years old for crying out loud! It’s not like I’m in the NBA here! I want to see them try and step foot in my shoes right now... Nonsense, focus. My defender looks really intimidating. His muscles contract as his thumbs rub against his fingertips. Boy does he want the ball from me. I can even see the droplets of sweat drip off his chin to the ground, but there is no time for that. I need to make a move and make it quick. Six seconds. Should I try the stutter step? No? he looks too good for me to try that on him. Maybe a spin move? Ah! I got it! I’m going to use my teammate over here as a screen so I could rub off of him and shoot a wide…...

...BASEBALL’S INTERIOR Something happened to about 4 years ago to me. I was fourteen years old and my brain took a major cramp-full. My loving grandfather died at the age of 71. He was my mentor, idol, friend, and a loving grandpa, I will never forget him. He worked his ass off his entire life and didn’t take anything from anyone. He turned out to be one of the most successful people around. He started off as a janitor and later become a president of a die cast shop. When he died, it really got my brain to critical think and to do this day I always think things through and never just go with it. The contents of my brain are everything that I do on a daily basis. My direct personal experience with my grandpa made the ideals I live by exist exclusive. The game of life is a very difficult game to play. You never know what going to happen and you never live in the past. Always look toward you’re future goals to live a more successful life. I have made many mistakes in my life and by making mistakes I learn from them. My brain at first thinks it’s going to be a good idea at the time and in the end it just gets you in trouble. That’s why personal experience is a key to the knowledge of your brain. You have to really stick with your values and be truly loyal to them to get past hard life experience. Your brain can play tricks with you, but you have to remember those personal experiences and get by the hard times. There have been major changes that have occurred in recent years in...

Vagina Monologue

...women were in Vagina monologue and in The Laramie Project both disturbed me because I know people who could relate to both topics. Both are very close friend of mine. Starting off with Vagina Monologue the story that affected me the most was the situation with the girl who couldn’t speak English so she couldn’t tell her parents what actually happened so they assumed and treated her like she was washed up and a disgrace. She did nothing wrong and they were very wrong to assume without having and kind of communication with her. Not even to ask if she was okay being that they did think she was sexually abused. My friends Mom accused her of having sexual relations with her boyfriend which was totally gross!!! She didn’t want to hear her daughters side of the story so she just ------ her out. There was absolutely no communication going on what so ever and assumptions could go so far as to destroying something that means so much to you for no reason. Another part of the Vagina Monologue that made me think of a friend was when the girl was disgusted with her vagina!!!! She thought it was gross and she didn’t even want it… It reminded me of a girl I know who is gay, she hates her private part. She hates to acknowledge it and doesn’t even like to clean herself. She’s cried to me numerous times about it and I was speechless because I felt the vagina was a part of a woman’s body that should be embraced. (Quote) The one part of the vagina Monologue that I enjoyed......

Bridgewater Interiors Information Sharing

...Methods of Sharing Information at Bridgewater Interiors Patricia Reed HCS/325 January 30, 2012 Kelli Reid Methods of Sharing Information at Bridgewater Interiors The way that a business shares knowledge inside the organization as well as outside of the organization is very important. Whether a business shares knowledge through traditional means, or the new boundaryless means is critical to the success of the business. What are boundaryless organizations? “Boundaryless organizations communicate mainly through email, phone and other virtual methods rather than more traditional face-to-face communication.

This paper will discuss the ways Bridgewater Interiors effectively shares knowledge within the organizations, and outside of the organization. This paper will also discuss whether these methods of communication are effective or ineffective, how these techniques can be used in a health care organization, and the impact that technology can have on information sharing.

Journey Ti the Interior

...“JOURNEY TO THE INTERIOR.” The poem “Journey To The Interior” is written by Margaret Atwood. This poem was written in 1960’s. This poem belongs to the “Confessional School of poets”. These poets believed that as a result of the post world war genocide, atom bombs and concentration camps, human psyche has been damaged to a large extent, leaving the poets with the responsibility to explore their own recesses of darkness. Margaret Atwood was deeply influenced by this urge to embark upon such an inner and imaginative journey. The poem “Journey To The Interior” portrays Atwood’s attitude on inner journey to discover oneself. She presents a metaphorical journey to explain a journey into the mind. She examines human behavior’s reasons, understanding one self’s mystery, lack of knowledge of individuals about themselves.

Viola's Monologue

...Skyler King Professor Lanham English 1020 February 6, 2015 Viola: What Means this Monologue? In the play “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare, Viola decides that she will disguise herself as a man and she will be working with the Duke Orsino. He has been in love with Olivia for a long time, and he asks Viola to be his messenger. Viola goes to meet Olivia and tells her everything Orsino told her too. Orsino also sent a ring with Viola to give to Olivia, which she did. As she leaves, Olivia realizes that she has fallen in love with her, even though she has no idea she is a woman dressed as a man. She sends Malvolio after her to give her the ring back. She then goes into a long monologue about the ring and how confused she was that she had gotten it back. A monologue is any composition in which a single person speaks alone (dictionary.com) In her monologue, it is clear that Olivia is falling in love with Viola, and that they are caught in the middle of one huge love triangle. Throughout Viola’s monologue, she depicts many different literary elements, including allusion, metaphor, personification, symbolism, and theme. When Malvolio brings back the ring that Viola had given Olivia, she becomes very confused. In her monologue, she is basically saying that she didn’t leave a ring with her, why is she giving this to her? She is hoping that Olivia hasn’t started to like her. She was looking at Viola so much that she couldn’t even finish her sentences and she seemed......
