Titanic Essay

Intro Sample...


My mother was furious that he didn’t knock… poor soul; He was only going to inform us that dinner was ready. I wasn’t too excited to hear this. I just wanted to be on my own in my room. Otherwise I would have to sit with my mum and her friends, listening to them blabbering on about the inadequate behaviour of the 3rd class passengers. Personally I don’t think people should be judged by class. Everyone deserves a chance to prove themselves. But there wasn’t much point of me saying this anyway… my mother never cared about my opinions and views in life.
As I walked down the hall, I could smell the fresh aromas of my dinner wafting through the air from the kitchen below. My taste buds were tantalised as I hadn’t eaten for so long. My belly was grumbling as I got closer to the dinner hall! I stepped inside and followed my mother to the table. We sat down at a big round table with at least ten chairs circling it, which meant we weren’t eating alone! That night I had the best lobster I have ever tasted, with a few roast potatoes on the side. When dinner was finished I was finally free. My mother had gone off for a few cocktails with her friends and I was allowed to go to the suite. I got back into my room and did something I wouldn’t have been able to do if my mother had been there. I launched myself onto the bed and just stared into the beautifully decorated ceiling. Hours went by, and my mother hadn’t yet returned. Surprisingly, I was extremely bored. So I decided to sort out my clothes for the third time. Then it dawned on me. I could draw! I go to a private art school. I don’t know what else I would do if I didn’t go to an art school. It’s not that I’m not bright, because I am, in fact, very clever. However, I enjoy drawing so much more. I got out my sketch pad and pencils and I was off. When I start to draw, I View More »

    The Titanic

    408 words, 2 pages

    Since 1912, when the Titanic sank on her inaugural voyage, there have been many theories behind the mystery of how this unsinkable ship ended up on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Up until now, the theory has been that an iceberg tore open a 300-foot gash in the side of the 900 foot-long luxury liner. Even after 1985, when Robert D. Ballard founded the Titanic, the expeditions mainly focused on the beauty of the ship and not the damage it had sustained from the iceberg. Of course the Titanic is submerged in many feet of mud so searching for the damage has been impossible. Just Recently r

All of these stages build off one another and guide students towards a polished final product. However, studies show that students do not necessarily devote an equal amount of time and energy to all parts; in fact, most students will only focus on one or two of the four proposed steps. One step in particular that is heavily neglected is the prewriting step. There are a number of reasons why students often opt out of this particular step, but this research paper will e

Evidentialism is the standing that for a belief to be knowledge, it must be supported by evidence. According to evidentialism, everyone has a rational and moral duty to believe only those claims that are supported by sufficient evidence.
