Both pieces of art convey that it is important to have dignity in life to make the worst situations seem a little better. Mack and the boys, Lee Chong, and Dora provide this tone in Cannery Row while the colorful figures do so in Haring’s painting. The dysfunctional yet dignified tone reminds both readers and art viewers that even when things are not going the way they are planned, they can turn out better if you maintain the pride that you tried to get something done. If you keep a positive attitude, your life will mirror your
Now this place was not your average go and sit down and eat kinda place. This was a five-star place that had a view of the beach and the pier, and the food was to die for. The best part of that night though was when an announcement came over the intercom and said that in 5 minutes we would see the greatest firework show north of the Ohio River. My goodness, I have never been more impressed by the amount of light that was shot up into the moonlit muggy air. That was a night I will never forget, sitting on the patio with family and friends while celebrating our Independence Day.
My friend Josh had this bright idea to drink a whole half a bottle of brown liquor by himself! All of them are like lit before 3:00. So the day goes on and we usually end up at the “Strip” at night. Usually we find our own way to the Strip but this particular year Mrs. Christie was nice enough to take us to the Strip. So we all pack up in the “church van”; all my friends are high, drunk, and everything else and we head to the Strip.
We smoked dope all the way, and as we were late in arriving headed straight to the club. Ty had a handful of meth tabs, and we each ate five hits to get started. We spent the rest of the night hanging out with his band members and dancing until 2:00 AM. We then moved to an after-hours club and danced until dawn eating speed all night. We did stop for breakfast, but because we were so wired, couldn’t eat and spent the next few hours smoking a bong full of hash until we were ready to crash.
Bacardi and Coke, my favorite drink. It was at my first work-related ball I had my first drink. Once that drink hit my taste buds, life was never the same. One minute I’m having fun then I’m legless, beyond drunk and passed out in the ladies toilet with vomit covering my new green dress. In front of other work-colleagues, like a wounded animal hanging off a pole, four male friends of mine, carried me across the ballroom floor, down the stairs to the street below.
Every bite was a tasty sensation. A morning out on the lake fishing can bring on a mighty hunger. The next day we had to pack up and head back home. As we drove out of the driveway of the cabin, I was sad because we had to leave the place I have loved since I was a little boy. As the sun sets I dreamed of returning to Mann Lake for another adventure with my
Forgiveness The word forgiveness sounds like an easy concept to understand and act upon it- but it’s much harder than anybody can believe. Saying the phrase, “I forgive you,” and actually going through the stages and presses of the forgiving process is two totally different things. For example, when someone you care about hurts you, you can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge, or embrace forgiveness and move forward with your life. In order to forgive others, you have to be able to forgive yourself. You have to accept the fact that we all are human, and also we all have faults and make mistakes.
I woke up to my obnoxious alarm, groggily walked upstairs, and made myself a peanut butter jelly sandwich. As I sat down in the tan recliner, I flipped the television channel to NBATV. I proceeded to watch the highlights from last night’s games in the NBA. It didn’t take long for the Stephen Curry highlight reel of remarkable three-pointers to start playing. Watching in amazement, I imagined myself doing the same in my game later that night.
Mark opened his eyes and saw an empty spot right beside him, Bambam was not beside him. He got curious so he went out of the bed and went to the bathroom to washed up first before searching for Bambam. Surprisingly, he saw a slim naked human figure in front of his eyes. Bambam was busy scanning the bruises he got last night by the sink's mirror, he had matched eyes with Mark and suddenly, he had a uneasiness feeling in him. Mark approached Bambam and pushed the latter against the sink gently and he nibbles on his lips passionately.
I was naïve for not being able to cut my losses, and I paid the price. “At the moment it seemed like a good idea”, is what maybe goes through everyone’s mind after they come into their senses from our failed attempts in Escalation of Commitment. Persistence is not always a good thing, and it could lead people into their own demise. I learned that you shouldn’t ignore the subtle signs that are given to you, whether to continue

With no immediate threat present I left an returned to walking around the sandbar enjoying the band an nice weather. Another 45 minutes passed approximately when I glance over to see a distressed expression on Shane roads face as he looks over to me an says "where have you been?!". Being alarmed I walk briskly to my boat to find a stranger on board uninvited aggressively trying to remove the flag from the canopy. He was 6 '1" mid build 180lbs dark hair an tan with facial hair mid 20s maybe. I then board port side over the rail where 2 men were wrestling with Shane roads, I tried
