The Great Depression

The great depression happened from 1929 to 1939. It was the deepest and longest-lasting economic downturn in the history of the industrial West. It began in the stock market crash in October of 1929. In 1933, when the Great Depression reached its highest peak, about 13 to 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half of the country’s banks had failed.

colleges in the 1930s

University of Pennsylvania State

The mascot of Penn State university is Nittany Lion. A room and a board would cost you $540 a year. The average tuition was about $300 for all subjects. One major difference from colleges then and now is the costs for everything. Now a days its easily over $1k a year just for tuition. Another difference is campus life. Before people would just go for their education. Now their is parties all the times in the dorms.

Stan's Apology Letter

Dear Mr. Strohein,

    Im very sorry for kicking dust onto your shoe.I just wanted to stand up up for Andrew. But I'm apologizing and I think you should let me come back. I always come to work on time and do all my work and sometimes stay extra time. I really think you should consider hiring me back.

Personal Review

Broadway show: The book of mormon

First show was in 2011 and the price of tickets is $238

"The Book Of Mormon" isn't about religion.

Sure, its protagonists are a pair of missionaries in Africa. And a hefty portion of its laughs come at the expense of those friendly door-to-door Mormons. But this is a play about contrasting reality with fantasy and making fun of everything and everyone as it goes. From AIDS to Jesus to Yoda, nothing is off limits.

The Broadway musical from the creators of "South Park" (Trey Parker and Matt Stone) and the composer of "Avenue Q" (Robert Lopez) played to a full house at the Landmark Theatre Wednesday night. It runs until Sunday evening.

Let's start by being clear that the show is offensive in the traditional sense of the word: Four-letter words; sex jokes; sacrilege. But it's only offensive because it wants to offend you. Ultimately, it drops a dose of vulgar, ugly and comically juxtaposed reality on the absurdity of musical theater and the incongruities of one particular religion: Mormonism.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was funny interesting and entertaining. I would absolutely recommend this book to some of my friends because me and my friends share the same interests, and I know they would like it. My favorite part in the book is when Stan gave Eugene a picture of a naked french lady, and he got surprised. I really wish to read a book like this again in the future.
