The Strangers

[Tentacles undulating moistly], [wet footsteps squelch], [tense music intensifies] are as memorable as Vecna himself.

Stranger Paper Strangers are everywhere, some have even been sharing a class with me all throughout high school so far. Yet, I have never really bothered to notice them. However, during the past few days in Ap Psychology, I have observed someone that’s been a stranger to me for years and learned some interesting facts about them as a person. My stranger, Jake Allen, appears to be very confident in his appearance, athletic, fashionable, popular and cares about school. The evidence that backs up this assumption is present in the clothing he wears, his behavior in class, and his social media. Many times clothing becomes a way for teenagers to express themselves, especially on the first day.

First, his social media account is not private, like most other students. Every post he has uploaded is on display for everyone to see, which shows that Jake is self-assured about his social image. Even though he only has thirty posts, he has three hundred followers. His newest posts received over one hundred likes and multiple comments. This shows popularity is indeed something he has, confirming my theory from above. All the pictures look very professional, which reveals again he greatly cares about the way he presents himself. In one post, Jake holds a surfboard with the caption “try something new. you will amaze yourself with what you are capable of”, from this it is implied he has never surfed before.

Not only does this post show Jake is alright with going out of his comfort zone and attempting something brand new, but he is also very athletic. From the last boys’ volleyball JV 1 roster, I found Jake Allen's name. This shows that he takes time and keeps himself in shape. By making it into JV 1, it shows he is very dedicated and responsible. Not only does he practice a lot to maintain his skill level in volleyball, but he also had to balance school work with the sport. His posture in class also revealed many things about him as a person. Jake Allen is always slouched down and does not move very often, presenting himself as a very laid-back person. Unlike some people who twitch in their seats, he.

What if the past had no meaning and the only part of our lives that matters is that which is happening presently? To further exacerbate the matter, all hope for some form of salvation and everlasting life from a God is entirely futile; when life is over, all forms of existence are over as well. Such a desolate point of view is illustrated in Albert Camus’ The Stranger. Camus used characters such as the protagonist, Meursault, to establish his belief that life is nothing more than physical existence and that one can only define their life’s value based on the events happening at the time in question. Whether Camus himself agreed with this viewpoint is irrelevant as throughout his novel, the striking contrast between Meursault and the society he found himself in clearly epitomized Meursault as an anomalous sociopath. The events resulting from the protagonist’s detached and brutally honest personality, as well as a dearth of moral conscience, exemplify the extent to which amorality can be commensurate to madness.
