While on vacation in Acapulco Mexico, I, along with my family and friends took a tour by boat to a small resort island. As we approached, I was awestruck by it's beauty.

I knew it was gum because she had it in her mouth for a long time and plus I could see it in her mouth. So just like any normal brother would do, I told her not to eat things you find and she said that she didn’t find it on the ground but rather in a tree.

Throughout life clothing and body language are often utilized
Throughout life, clothing and body language are often utilized as sources of emotional expression. These emotions can also be portrayed in literaray works and artisitic displays, such as those of Poe, Baudelaire, Manet, and Warhol. In Poe’s “Man of the Crowd,” there are several descriptions of different types of people based on their appearances, but one particular man is focused on by the narrator due to his unique appearance. Baudelaire’s “The Painter of Modern Life” emphasizes the emotional

An A- (90%) was received on this paper. The dress code in public schooling has been a controversial issue lately, both in Massachusetts and nation-wide. I feel some type of dress code would cut down some of the everyday problems that schools have today. A dress code in public schooling would be a good idea because it would reduce violence, eliminate the problem of wearing hats or jackets in school, and make school more of an academic atmosphere, and less of a social one. In this paper, I will d

As a child, on any hot, sunny summer day there was always a good chance that my family and I would be going swimming. Going to our cousins’ house to swim in their pond were exciting times. We parked in their driveway and walked through the very tall pine trees that went up as far as the eye could see and as far down. The trees seemed like an entrance into another world. If I looked up, I barely saw the tips of the trees swaying back and forth by a light breeze. I faintly smelled the light scent

I am violently warring for peace. I know this is a paradox, and I'm rather proud because it is true. Passivity has been a lifelong threat, laziness a constant lure in my search for identity. This world begs me to succumb to existing in the image of someone else, it asks only that I slip silently and blindly into the niche it provides instead of carving my own. I required a long time to work up courage to fight for the serenity I had glimpsed in hot summer woods and in lovingly handled books rea
