Can Some one proof read this please!!!! Oh How I Love My Family It was Wednesday, November 23 2008, 2:25 pm. My parents and I were sitting in my mom’s gold van waiting for my sister Macey and brother Andrew to get out of school. My sister gets out at 2:30 pm because she was in elementary school. Whereas my brother, who was in his senior year and had a perfect attendance record up until that day, with less a year left of his high school career, and he was pulled out 30 small minutes before the end of the high school school day, man was he mad about that. So, we were on our way by 2:32 pm to my dad’s sister Joanna’s house in North Carolina. We were on the road for many, many long and boring hours, the van was claustrophobic and stuffy. I was asleep for at least two hours when I was jostled, then the next thing I knew the car was stopped, it was dark and the car filled with freezing cold air as my dad left his car door open while he walk around the car looking at the ground. Apparently we ran over a nail, so we had to call AAA. Since it was so late, they said that they would come get the car in the morning so my dad told them our exact location. Luckily, we were close enough to my aunt’s house so my dad called my uncle Rich. While we waited for the longest hour of my life, my sister and brother both decided to have hissy fit break downs and say we were going to be stuck on the side of the cold dark road and die. I just didn’t realize what was actually happening because it was about 12:45 and 8 year old little me just didn’t care, because I was so very cold, overly tired, very cramped and just wanted to get to my aunt’s house. Finally, my uncle and two oldest cousins showed up in their huge brand new white Suburban. By the time we got to their house, it was around 3 am, I could barely stay awake as I grabbed my bag from the car upstairs to my aunt’s dark wooden paneled office, I didn’t care it was cold or that I had to sleep on a yoga mat on the floor, I just wanted to go to sleep. I woke up and was extremely confused because I forgot where I was and as I looked around I wonder where my sister, brother, and cousins from Pennsylvania were. So, I opened the old creaky office door and wandered down the stairs, when I finally made my way to the kitchen and family room. On the three seater black leather couch was Andrew reading his book, as always, sitting next to him was Jake and Owen, two of the three cousins from Pennsylvania, Jake was playing on some handheld gaming device and Owen was playing with Legos on the shag carpet floor. When I went to get a bagel form the kitchen my parents were chatting with my aunt Suzy and her son Nick from Orlando, Florida. Turns out that Jake and Owens’ mom, Wendy, dad, Ron, sister, Julia, Macey, Joanna, Rich, their three kids Kelby, Kyle, and Chase were all participating in the local Turkey Trot. By the time they all got back it was bright and sunny noon. >>>>

Read the following passage and answer the question that follows. Tom Stoppard’s play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, draws on two previous theatrical works: Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead follows the “off-stage” exploits of two minor characters from Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. While the two main characters in Stoppard’s play occasionally make brief appearances in “Hamlet,” as scripted in Shakespeare’s original tragedy, the majority of the play takes place in other parts of the castle where Hamlet is set. While “off stage” in this way, the characters resemble the main characters in the absurdist Waiting for Godot. As in Beckett’s play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern pass the time by impersonating other characters, engaging in word play, and remaining silent for long periods of time. These same two characters were also featured in a parody of Hamlet, the short comic play by W. S. Gilbert entitled Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Gilbert’s play makes Rosencrantz and Guildenstern into central characters and alters the storyline of Hamlet. This passage clearly states that (5 points) there are many playwrights who show little or no respect for classic works of literature Tom Stoppard wrote his play to counteract Shakespeare’s messages in Hamlet two different writers have made Rosencrantz and Guildenstern into main characters analyzing literature can be difficult for people who do not know many different titles

This question is based on the following paragraph. In American society, romantic love is considered the main reason for people to marry. On the other hand, in some societies, romantic love is considered a form of obsession or madness. In fact, even in many societies where “true love” is not considered a form of insanity, arranged marriages are still the norm. For example, in many cultures it’s believed that marriage is basically an economic arrangement. Thus, a farmer needs a wife both to bear children and to share the farm work while raising new “hands” as additional farm labor. In other societies, marriage is mainly about cementing connections between families. Indeed, most marriages between members of European royal or aristocratic lineages were primarily aimed at creating trust, loyalty, and mutual obligations between privileged and powerful families. What is the main idea in this paragraph? A. Arranged marriages are more practical than those based on romantic love. B. Marriage is usually a family affair. C. True love is a sound basis for marriage. D. Different societies have different ideas about the purpose of marriage.
