I knew in a few hours she would have left and i wouldn’­t see her for a while, I opened the drawer next to the bed and held the ring in my hand. After thorough inspection I put it back in its casket and into the drawer. I would have to ask her when she awakes I thought to myself, encouraging and reinforcing the thought rather than believing it. Time passed and I lay there, it must have been around 5 in the morning and I had no way to tell for sure since the darn holiday shed didn’t have a clock. The ceiling fan completed its slow and noisy rotation, resounding…[show more]

Miscellaneous 569 Words / ~ pages Martin Luther Universität Halle Cause And Effect 16/01/2001 Why study - life is hard to be a success. My biggest problem as a student is the need of time. Time is always too short for anything in life. Especially these days, I got to do such a mass of tasks that it’s hard to keep up motivation. On the one hand I’m very happy about my new flat, I found some weeks before Christmas. On the other hand I know, that I need a lot of time to fix several things there, that I’m able to move there.

Each city has its own style of architecture, which is unique…[show more]
Miscellaneous 458 Words / ~1 page Gymnasium München Causes of the Civil War The issues that caused the Civil War had been brewing since the United States was formed. The most important causes Southerners listed for the war were unfair taxation, states rights, and the slavery issue. Here are some primary sources that show how heated these issues had become by the late 1850s.

From the cover of the book I couldn’t really expect anything, because it’s just red. But then I read the blurb and also watched the movie and the topic the book is discussing catch me a bit. The way how the blurb describes the experiment that a teacher wanted to stage a kind of national socialism in his class sparked my interest.
