Comic sans is the best font in the world. Really. I do not care which boring professor dares to argue it or win against it but it is supposed to be the truth. Comic sans is a font invented by Vincent connare to use it for Microsoft bob, Because a heavy-looking font like times new roman is not fittable for a funny dog. Times new roman is a serif font and a serious font, Of course used on formal essays this is better than comic sans but is the world only applied with formal essays? No! It turns out more informal texts are in this world. Tell me if you are going to use times new roman for early-childhood education when they cannot even see well and want a fun font. Children are not
PhD adults. They are not fainters who wants more serious stuff instead of what is really fun. Serifs creates a blur if the reader have farsightedness or dyslexia. Times new roman, As what Jessica reviews on narratively is a blurry font that could not been read, But comic sans is a significant font for dyslexia people because the strokes are friendly, Clear, And same width. Not all people are smart. They need clear and distinct and not blurry things for reading and furtherly writing. Also Comic sans is used by a humble and pun-telling skeleton, And times new roman? Some strict and unfunny and boring professor that will worsen your own life.

Tell me what is times new roman. It is just a old times font instead of New. Roman? Nowhere near. What is used for times new roman? Reports, Formal essays, Aka what nobody likes to read. Comic sans is used on, Ball party invitation, Childhood learning, And tv show icons, Aka what everybody reads. Why do they hate comic sans? Wiggly strokes, "inappropriate" appearances, And childish looks. For childish looks and wiggly strokes, Don't you want a teacher that likes child and will bead her waist when talking to you while you were short, Instead of a coldhearted teacher that will hold a strong posture all the way to the end of the day? And for inappropriate appearances, It is not like that. What do you call when a pre-k gamebook is filled with confusing times new roman? Isn't that inappropriate also? Comic sans can be used on every informal document, And informal texts are much more significant than formal ones. Do you want to read a 30 page essay about the core values within the popes in the holy roman empire? If no, Then choose comic sans. It is new and fresh. Time new roman is old and dull like broken antique.

Sorry had to write an essay regarding Romeo and Juliet. Handed it in as times new roman and the quality improved.
Essay before:
Gnomeo and julyet perents mad at dem.
Essay after:

How does William Shakespeare"s classic masterpiece of a tragic love story, "Romeo and Juliet", Continue to be relevant in our generation? Conflicts between parents and their children have been an issue since time immemorial. Such clashes have broken up or even destroyed families. "Romeo and Juliet" was written in the 1597 where the play was set in Verona, England. Shakespeare presents different but related types of conflict using a diverse range of literary devices such as simile, Tone and imagery. Shakespeare examines this issue of parental conflict and family relationships through the use of gender contrast and through significantly delineating parents" attitudes when dealing with a son or a daughter. Romeo & Juliet"s behaviour are substantially different in relation to interacting with their father or mother, Further defining the generational differences in this play. In Shakespeare"s "Romeo and Juliet", Parental conflict transforms a love story into a tragedy presented through young lovers who defy the norms of societal conduct in the Elizabethan England era.

Shakespeare depicts attitudes towards gender in "Romeo and Juliet" through the behaviour parents manifested towards their children. Romeo"s parents are concerned over his emotional well-being; they want to rescue him from his melancholy, But they do not attempt to strongly define his parameters in life. This is apparent when Lady Montague, In Act 1 Scene 1, Uses an apprehensive tone exclaiming, "Oh, Where is Romeo? Saw you him today? Right glad I am he was not at this fray. ". Her brisk abrupt questions paired with the use of the monosyllabic word "Oh" indicates her anxiety, Knowing that she cannot get definite answers from anyone, Least of all her son. It hints at the lack of communication between Romeo and his parents. However, Juliet"s parents are indifferent about her feelings because they are certain they know what is best for her. She is expected to follow her parents' wishes in matters of true importance such as matrimony. Shown in Act 1 Scene 3, When Lady Capulet says" Younger than you. Here in Verona/ ladies of esteem are made already mothers. Verona's summer hath not such a flower/ Read o'er the volume of young Paris face And find delight writ there with beauty's pen"", She tells Juliet that she must accept marrying Paris because he is ideal and sought after. She uses an imperative, Commanding tone and simile as she describes how Paris is as immaculate as a flower in a Verona summertime. She selects her tone of voice to enticingly deliver all of Paris" good qualities, Thus attempting to persuade Juliet to marry Paris. She is chiding Juliet by referring her to "ladies of esteem" that she will be considered less worthy if she were not a mother yet at her age. Lady Capulet uses this argument to build up the case for Paris. It is intrinsically understood that she is expected to follow her parent"s wishes as the norms of the time dictate.

This striking contrast in how Juliet is treated by her father and her mother is consistently present in this work. Shakespeare presents her father as one to take the initiative when forcing Juliet into her parents" plans, Attempting to eliminate all possible defiance, While her mother is observed to be more reserved, But still determined, With Juliet. There is a build-up of tension between Juliet and her parents. In Act 1 Scene 3, Juliet"s parents are angered because of Juliet's initial rejection of her mother"s proposed marriage plans. In Act 3 Scene 5, Lord Capulet exclaimed, "Call her names, Green sickness, Carrion, You baggage, You tallow face! / Hang, Beg, Starve, Die in the streets. " All of these names present demeaning images with the intention to belittle Juliet. He uses selective diction, Following the rule of three in choosing harsh words for emphasis as he threatens to disown Juliet. Juliet is subjected to an unmitigated litany of insults. Being strong-willed and fearful of losing Romeo, She openly rebels. Her defiance and strong will are shown in her secret plan to leave home as her definitive response to her parents" arguments. This plan is the culmination of Romeo and Juliet"s severing ties from their parents.

In Romeo"s case, His defiance is subtle and sometimes understated; his parents do not directly confront and question him about his behaviour. This portrayal is in contrast with Juliet"s more direct, Argumentative approach to defiance due to the more forceful means her parents use is their attempt to convince her to follow their wishes regarding Paris. This provides a glimpse into how Romeo"s character is developed. He doesn"t rebel openly but rather conceals his emotions from his parents. This is shown in Act 1 Scene 1 through Montague"s imagery of the prevailing mood conveying only desolation. He says, "Many a morning hath he there been seen/With tears augmenting the fresh morning"s dew/Adding to clouds more clouds with his deep sighs. ". His melancholy is concretised through pathetic fallacy correlating the mood to morning dew and gloomy skies. His tears add to the morning dew and his deep sighs to the clouds. The cloud imagery is typically used to reflect deep sadness. This description captures his alienation from his parents. Romeo"s mood is not a temporary occurrence as evidenced by "many a morning". This phrase flows fluently due to alliteration. Both types of rebellion show the same degree of resistance to their respective parental wishes despite Romeo"s family relationships having no dramatic outbursts. In actuality, Romeo was never observed engaged in conversation with his father. This is shown when his father hastily exits the scene as Romeo arrives as if he found it awkward to be with his son. Both scenes illustrate the way in which Romeo"s parents vainly attempt to communicate.

Parental conflict is a consistent, Powerful and underlying theme in "Romeo and Juliet". The complex circumstances, Enhanced by Romeo and Juliet"s rebellious behavior, Are further complicated by the age-old enmity of these two families. In an Elizabethan setting, Parents are endowed with their own right and responsibility to dictate a certain path of their children"s lives. The two different households merely present differing parenting styles which motivate their children"s defiance. This defiance makes this piece of literature relevant as it mirrors the circumstances of many families today in which children, Particularly teenagers, Rebel against their parent"s wishes. Both Capulets and Montagues face difficult issues regarding a unique inability only adolescents have wherein they struggle to share their personal life with their elders. The significant difference between the Capulet and Montague households involves societal expectations with regards to children; sons can be more liberal while daughters aren"t supposed to think for or of themselves but rather about honouring and enhancing the family"s name and prospects. Parental conflict foreshadows the later tragedy of "Romeo and Juliet. " This is presented through the two young lovers who rebelliously defy the norms of societal expectations and conduct in Elizabethan England. The young lovers eventually succeed in consummating their love as man and wife although the tragedy of their deaths acts as a catalyst to heal the rift between the two families.
