Remembering An Event

I do not actually remember when I got my first pair of boxing gloves; I just remember them being there. They were red with chewed up white elastic around the wrist section and Mike Tyson’s autograph replicated on the knuckle. They were all chewed up because when we would put on one glove we would use our mouths to put on the other glove. I do not know what intrigued me about this vicious sport, but I loved every second of it. I guess I thought that being the world champ meant that you had nothing to fear, like superman. My dad always told my brother and I about the undefeated heavyweight champ Rocky Marciano and every time I would hear these stories I thought that is who I want to be when I grow up.
When I was about 4 years old I had my... View More »

I won my first match and I felt exactly how I thought I would, like superman.
The next week Friday was basically our first real event. We had 2 matches and charged one dollar admission but only made about fourteen dollars. The problem with PAB was that everyone would come drunk and/or high and not want to fight. This was not the case with the first match, my friend Dan vs. my other friend Dan. The one Dan was high and the other Dan was high, drunk, and drinking in between rounds, of course this caught up to him in the second round when he lost by a 10 count knockdown. The second match was me vs. this chubby 6’3” kid named Josh Marshall. It lasted about 15 seconds but this time I knock my opponent down. Josh was a little intoxicated but he did not even hit me once. After this Friday, PAB would be the new thing for seniors, juniors, and sophomores to do on Friday nights.
The next week we had 34 people crammed into the 16’ by 16’ laundry room and we decided that we would move it to my friend Kyle’s backyard. The first week at Kyle’s, Kyle and I both lost. Well Kyle didn’t have an explanation, but my explanation was that I fought with one hand. It is not that I thought I could win the fight with one hand; I just wanted to prove to myself that I could not be knocked down. The kid that I was boxing was named Wes Laney; he was about my height and weight and he was very ugly. When I put my hand behind my back I realized that I would not be able to block any of his punches and I didn’t. I basically let him punch me in the head repetitively until he got tired and then I would ...

    Remembering Babylon by David Malouf and Heart of darkness by Joseph Conrad are two works that use variations of chronological order to create a variety of effects. Although almost a hundred years separates the writing of these two works, there are some similarities in the issues they deal with, and the historical setting of both works is roughly the same time, the mid to the end of the nineteenth century. In Remembering Babylon, Malouf explores ideas about identity and the clash of cultures: on the one hand the Australian aboriginal culture and on the other white settlers who have trav

    Themes Of Memory And Forgetting In The Odyssey

    1002 words - 5 pages

    There are many themes of memory and forgetting in the world of “The Odyssey”. Both play a huge part on the events that take place. To say which is more important in “The Odyssey” is debatable. Some of my arguments will show how in some cases one is better than the other, but even though there may be instances where forgetting may have been more beneficial, in the end I will show how memory is more valuable as it pertains to the main characters Odysseus, Penelope, and Telemachos. In the Greek world during the time period of “The Odyssey”, men who went into battle wanted to be glorified for t

    False Memory

    3661 words - 15 pages

    Memory is the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. A repressed memory is one that is retained in the sub conscious mind, where one is not aware of it but where it can still affect both conscious thoughts and behavior. When memory is distorted or confabulated, the result can be what has been called the False Memory Syndrome: a condition in which a person's identity and interpersonal relationships are entered around a memory of traumatic experience which is objectively false but in which the person strongl
