The Motel Was Old

309 words, 2 pages

Intro Sample...


I flip the switch to light up the dark room, but I switched on this dim, rusty lamp that I could have sworn was from the seventies. I walk into the room to do an inspection, and boy were the comments on the motel’s website accurate. I instantly notice the cigarette-smelling, gray walls, and I was glad I didn’t take off my shoes as I walked in because under my brand new Nike shoes was a very sticky, muddy carpet that I feel was not cleaned in a decade. I turn on the fan because of heat-wave outside, but its fastest speed is as fast as a turtle, and as noisy as the cicadas in the hottest day of summer. I walk over to the window to open the curtains, hopefully to shed more light, but what I received was an unclean, opaque window.

I placed my things on this short and unorganized desk with papers all over it, because I was sure as hell not putting my stuff on the ground. I needed to take a breather, so I went over to sit down on the torn-up couch, but as I sat down it creaked like a door from a horror movie. As I tried to relax, I wanted to put my feet up onto the table, but thankfully before I did, I saw that it was cracked and termite-infested. I remained sitting and tried to turn on the tiny television but it was so quiet I’d rather listen to the incessant, dripping pipes behind the walls. Giving up on relaxing, I went over to the bathroom to clean up, the battered door squeaked as I opened it. I first saw the ink-splattered, shower curtain, an undersized yet stocky toilet, and an unsanitary, leaking sink. I washed and dried my hands on these dry, sandpaper towels, left the bathroom and decided to take a nap in bed. The bed was freezing and rock-hard, and the pillows were soft but soggy. Under these conditions, I’d rather sleep outside. Can you guess who’s going to write another bad review? View More »

    Sam Cooke In a class titled History of Rock ‘n Roll, one would think that the course would cover almost every major artist who participated in or influenced the rise of the genre. However, due to time constraints and personal preferences, every artist cannot be given the credit they deserve in the proper way—at least not all in one semester! That is okay, though. In this paper I plan on introducing an artist whose career and influence on the creation of the rock n’ roll era both was tremendous in his own right. Sam Cooke was a revolutionary artist who in some instances set the preceden

    In a little district west of Washington Square the streets have run crazy and broken themselves into small strips called "places." These "places" make strange angles and curves. One Street crosses itself a time or two. An artist once discovered a valuable possibility in this street. Suppose a collector with a bill for paints, paper and canvas should, in traversing this route, suddenly meet himself coming back, without a cent having been paid on account! So, to quaint old Greenwich Village the art people soon came prowling, hunting for north windows and eighteenth-century gables and Dutch at

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (

    Ted Bundy: The Raising Of A Serial Killer

    2455 words, 10 pages

    the word “serial killer” comes to mind, usually for me the name Ted Bundy is the one that dominates. Before Bundy was executed in 1989, he confessed to killing more that thirty women in almost a dozen states across the U.S. during his four year long string of murders in the 70s. “The thing that set Ted Bundy away from the serial killer’s stereo typical analysis is that he was such a mainstream All-American man that the Washington State Republican Party hired him, so cunning that he escaped from jail, twice, and so dashing that a woman friend used to send marriage proposals to him on death ro
