Failing at life (or at least deadlines for this class)

Ao once again I missed the deadline for this post. This is probably because my father was in town visiting from Alaska and that I am completely finished with my paper. Below is the last section of my paper. I hope you enjoy...

Through my research I was able to learn more about the folklore behind the vampire as well as the effect these creatures are having on people in society today. The fact that people are still interested in these creatures centuries after the first story was told really says something about how it connects with the human psyche and the desire to live forever. This research made me look at this creature as more than a popular trope that permeates through our popular culture but a symbol of human desire and longing for still more explanations for life and death and the meaning of both.
