Ski Trip
Ski Trip Standing in awe, cold air permeated through my hair. The smell of fresh and minty pine scent complimented the beautiful vantage of the wilderness. With my boots wedged in the snow, a shiver took over my body. This is was a place of peacefulness and tranquility. Never before had I been so close with nature. Facing the north was the vast forest. To the left and right, only the crystal white snow was visible. While looking up, I caught a glimpse of the old ski lift, the solo apparatus whi...

SmileCome onIts Free
Smile...Come on...Its Free !!! A SMILE costs nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine t...

In the book Sometimes a Shining Moment: Eliot Wiginton had a student that talked about a teacher who takes time to recognize students as an individual and not just part of a group. The student went on to say I had one particular teacher that I would never forget. Once when the teacher gave back an essay I found that she had complimented my essay, the topic, and even me. I had a teacher that that was just like the teacher that one of the juniors or seniors had. The teacher that I remember the ...

Hardo Baker HCOM 197 Independent Studies Journal (Woman Hollering Creek and other stories) (By Sandra Cisneros) Chapter One Section One My Friend Lucy Upon opening the book and reading the first paragraph I noticed a strangeness in the writing. I said to myself that these are run-on sentences. I had to go back and read the first paragraph all over because it did not make sense to me at first.

Instant
Instant I'll always remember Instant. That was the nickname the men had tacked onto the muscled giant that wielded the M60 in my unit. Instant was short for Instant Death. And I'll always remember the first time I saw Instant in action. I was a new Lieutenant assigned to Vietnam. Back then, the Army didn't try to develop any team spirit within the corps; men were rotated frequently before any friendships developed. Consequently, my men were a group of strangers united only by the need to ...

Suicide is a very serious problem, and it happens too often for us to ignore. I have always been interested in the different things involved in suicide and what would cause a person to kill themselves, but have never had the time to find out, until now. I used to think it was something that was a spur of the moment decision, but its not always. I thought it only happened to kids whose parents abused them, but thats not always true. I found that out when one of my friends that I had known sinc...

Teenage Years
Teenage Years People who are nostalgic about childhood, were obviously never children. Few people can remember the truth about adolescence. Their minds censor their memories; and have them believe that being a teenager was was one big party, free of cares and responsibilities. Well let me say this, you couldnt be more wrong if you had a lobotomy. There aren't that many adults around who realise what adolescence was really like. The anguish, the fear, the anxiety, the stress. People don't rem...

QuIP 1
QuIP # 1 Questions- Q- In the styles of live performing or television performing which style would be more suited for an average viewer. A- I believe that television as a way of mass producing entertainment has made it more of a low rate form of entertainment than live performances, however when using mass media one can broadcast a show to millions of viewers at one time. This surely proves that in our society that live performances are very rare but well remembered unlike all the ridiculous T....

The Advantages of American Educational System
The Advantages of American Educational System Parents and the older generation Americans always complain about the educational system of the country.

Instead, it is just teaching some other factors that are considered more significant than simply basic knowledge and skills. The American e...

Neil Christie
Neil Christie EL 101 2-13-97 The Best Way to Fix Greed Giving money to a charity really should be given from the heart, not just to make people look better. Donating to the poor or the sick should not be just for recognition of oneself. Giving should be done, not to get a name in the newspaper or on a plaque, but to help those who are less fortunate. In order to make the giving valuable, to the giver, they should experience or witness the lives of the less fortunate or sick. Community service i...

Exhausted, Kendra leaned back against the tree. The quiet of the night surrounded her, and in the distance she could see a small orange glow here and there of fires set by those who had been forced to leave their homes and set up camp in this park. She closed her eyes, rested her arms on her knees, and put her head down on her arms, cushioned by the sweatshirt she wore. The sweatshirt smelled of fresh air and smoke. She pulled the sleeves down over her cold hands. She sat like that for a while,...

Driving through the dessert can be wearisome, fatiguing and all the things that you dread in a long drive. Not this trip, it was the new beginning, I was on my way to find myself. I had 14 hours to contemplate the reasons I was doing this. My friends said I was nuts, family said I was stupid. Lets see, nuts and stupid, um, O.K. I guess everyone has their own opinion.

In the book of Matthew the Bible states that the second greatest comma
In the book of Matthew, the Bible states that the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself. When a person holds on to stereotypes and resentments towards his fellow man he cannot possibly love them to the degree called for. Both William Faulkner and Mark Twain show their characters struggling to progress past their stereotypes and the consequences of clinging on to them. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and Intruder in the Dust by William Faulkner the ...

Honors English 10 Frankenstein Essay The Forbidden Fruit All things truly wicked start from an innocence. Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) The Creature was not born evil. Nor was his corruption his fault. He was born innocent, without fault or sin. The Creature was turned to a Monster after he learned of humanity, and what a cold, cruel thing it can be. He was shunned, beaten, chased, and persecuted by those who did not understand him. The Monster then turned bitter and vengeful, and hated his cr...

Rich Spadaccini Fifth Period March 31, 1996 The Glass Menagerie The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams shows the struggle of two people to fit into society, Tom and Laura, and how society wouldnt accept them. They were the dreamers that were unjustly kept out and you may even go as far as to say persecuted into staying out and aloof like the other dreamers which are forced to become outcasts and not contribute to the actions of all. Tom and Laura, the two dreamers, were pushed by their mo...

Foreshadowing and Flashback
Foreshadowing and Flashback Two Writing Techniques That Make Fitzgerald A Great Writer by Jonathan Werne 'Suppose you met somebody just as careless as yourself.'

(Fitzgerald, pg. 63) Jordan is explaining to Nick how she is able to drive badly as long as everyone else drives carefully. This quote represents the writing technique of foreshadowing, which is being used in one of its finest form. Fitzg...

JD Salinger's Personal Life
J.D. Salinger's Personal Life Lots of people have asked me for the goodies on JDS' personal life. Frankly, I don't understand why. Because so many have asked, and keep asking, I thought I'd put down my reasons. Remember, though, that this isn't a monarchy. It's not even a democracy. It's just my opinion. Please feel free to disagree. My main reason to respect Salinger's privacy is just that, respect. He has asked very loudly for us to leave him alone, and who can blame him? If you were in his...

The Missed Fly Ball
The Missed Fly Ball Final Draft It was only a fly ball, but I missed it. I missed a fly ball in the final baseball game my 3rd grade year . It was a beautiful day, a few clouds covering the extremely blue summer sky. It was very hot. I remember this because of the tremendous amount of sweat that would run down my face while I stood out in right field. When I heard that crack of the bat, all I could hope for was that the ball would not come my direction. I have never had good luck, so the ball w...

The theme for The Gift of the Magi is that love is more important than any material item. Della and Jim, the two main characters, demonstrated the theme. This theme also occurs in the real world. The theme in this short story has a deep meaning. One way to interpret the theme is that love will last a lifetime, and material gifts will not. Another interpretation is that people will always remember how much they love someone or how much someone loves them, but they will not necessarily rememb...

The Need for Federal Government

The white-haired doctor with the blood-stained coat and pants smiled maliciously as he brought the razor to his waiting patient's face. Now please answer me honestly this time, Mr. Beckett, he said. I have been in this profession for over thirteen years, and I take pleasure in receiving input from clients. It helps me to know what hurts and what does not. Kind of keeps me ahead of the competition, I guess you could say. His patient nodded solemn acquiescence, shutting his eyes hard and biti...

While reading the essay Muddle in a Puddle, some very colorful images came to my mind about what I have done in my life that compare to this particular piece. Of all the times I have embarrassed myself by sticking my foot in my mouth, or by making a fool of myself by playing with a strange toy in the toy department, only to my surprise, everyone in the toy department was laughing at me.

This yellow wallpaper obsesses her so much that she begins to distrust everyone, even her husband. She is terrified that someone will take her wallpaper or find out more about it than she knows. One point I found interesting is that she sees a woman behind bars trying to get out in the pattern of the wallpaper. This might be the only ...

Many people who dream do not understand why they dream or what their dreams mean. I can still remember one particular dream I had as a young child that still puzzles me. I was in my backyard on my tire swing spinning and swinging around. As I was swinging the door on my dads tool shed started to open up. I then saw things that could only be described as humanoid aliens. They then stepped out, captured me, and took me into the tool shed. The tool shed must have really been a space ship from wha...

True Human Nature (Criticism Of Lord Of The Flies)
Word Count: 867 Reading Lord of the Flies, one gets quite an impression of Goldings view on human nature. Whether this view is right or wrong, true or not, is a point to be debated. This image Golding paints for the reader, that of humans being inherently bad, is a perspective not all people share. This opinion, in fact, is a point that many have disagreed with when reading his work. There are many instances throughout Lord of the Flies that state Goldings opinion suggesting an evil human nat...

When I was a kid we left the dirty streets of Brooklyn, New York for the quieter suburban streets of Connecticut. We moved into a large house in Norwalk, Connecticut. Norwalk is the sort of town that dreams of being a big city but will always be just another small port on the Connecticut coastline. Like out of some horror story, the south side of town offers plenty of frightening images: ghettos, drug dealers, prostitutes, graffiti, and even young urban professionals. The south end was a popula...

Whispers
Whispers Reading Orwells Shooting An Elephant helped me to remember about many decisions I have made, including a decision I made on a warm senior day of high school during lunch. Shooting An Elephant is ingeniously linked to everyday life. Orwell writes about his experiences as a political intruder in a western country, how it affected his life, and how these people influenced him to kill an elephant. My decisions are often based on the same subliminal whispers Orwell heard when he was ma...
