Reflection820 Words / ~2 pages My personal ‛Americ­an dream’ My personal ‛Americ­an dream’ isn’t just about a certain person from a film, a book, a TV-series or from politics (although, it would be fairly interesting to talk to Barack Obama or someone like him). It is also not about some landscapes, like the fascinating view of the Rocky Mountains. It is not even about my expectations concerning a typical American high school that tiptoed into my mind by watching thousands of TV-series, but it consists of all these things combined.

Essay639 Words / ~1 page Reflexion zu „Vergänglichk­ei­t“ Bei der Findung des Motivs war von Anfang für mich entschieden, dass ich mich der Landschaftsma­lerei widmen möchte. Die Landschaft und ganz besonders die unberührte Natur stellen für mich eine über jedes menschliche Individuum wiegende und kontrollieren­de Macht dar. Das Gefühl klein und unbeholfen, aber gleichzeitig tief mit der vor einem liegenden Landschaft verbunden zu sein, fasziniert mich schon sehr lange. Die Unerreichbark­eit der Weiten und die erdrückende Wahrheit, dass die Natur immer die Macht über einen selbst hat läuft auf eine Ohnmacht der Gefühle hinaus. Ich habe mich für einen impressionist­ische­n Stil entschieden, da die Wirkung der Landschaft vor allem von außen an uns ran tritt. Des Weiteren bin ich bin davon überzeugt, dass die bis heute für uns Menschen nicht…[show more]

Essay929 Words / ~2 pages English Homework comment Is The „American Dream“ Still Alive? We students had to write an essay about the American Dream as a homework in English class, and especially we had to answer the question „Is The „American Dream“ Still Alive?“. But I did, however, deal with the question „Was there ever an American Dream?“ The first thoughts which came in my mind were „What exactly is the American Dream and is there something like an American Dream?“ According to Google the A.M. is „the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to any American, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved.“ This sounds pretty nice, for the Americans but I will not be jealous or sad.
