The spread of urban sprawl causes insane traffics that last up to one hour just to get from one place to another. Urban sprawl also causes air pollution which harms our environment and damages the air we breathe. In Atlanta, Georgia there were too many cars on the road and the Clean Air Act (CAA)
The biting rain drenched him and his surroundings, making the street glisten under the glow of the cars’ lights and causing their tires to swish as they drive by. The setting builds up the story to be dark and depressing, from the pounding rain, to the cold, grimy, dismal alley. In this alley, Andy is trapped. His hopelessness growing as quickly as the pool of blood he is surrounded by. At first, as he lay there with life slowly escaping his body he does not realize he is dying.
In addition, over 11,000 residents lost power because of the strong winds downing powerlines and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport canceled over 40 flights, with others being delayed an average of 20 minutes. Strong winds are expected to continue through today and temperatures are expected to only be in the 40s, but feel like 30s because of the wind chill. Weather System heading for New England As of Friday the storm system will be dissipating, but will still be carrying enough punch to cause high winds with gusts of up to 60 mph and dump several inches of wet snow in the Lake Superior area. Snow is expected with flurries and lowered visibility throughout a large swath of the Northern states and lower Great Lakes region. The National Weather Service continues to watch the storm closely and assess and damage caused.
xxxx.08.24 Finally, I escaped from suffocating world. I was walking on the street. The street was brightened with various colors and I hate those colors that glow from people. I hate every color that each person has. Limpid rain was falling into the ground from the sky.
Thats the question i ask my self everyday these past couple of months. I feel as if I never made my own decisions in life. I always depended on my guardians and others to help make my decisions . It’s good to get help from others to make decisions but not all the time. There were time where I would like to do certain things and i would ask a friend how they felt about it and if they negatively commented I would automatically change my mind , there would be parties I would not want to go to but the people i surrounded my self around wanted to go I would force my self to go.
Last year, in my world literature class, I read Our Town by Thornton Wilder. Before I read this play, I never truly valued time. I always saw it as something arbitrary, a human invention. To me, the clock ticking in background was just signaling the time of day, nothing else. Seconds were just a smaller unit for minutes and minutes were just a smaller unit for hours.
In high school, I hated writing essays for my English classes. At first, I did not have a reliable writing process. I would free write a rough draft and turn it in as a final draft. I would also write last minute instead of using the time to create a well-thought essay. I focused more on passing a class rather than boosting my writing skills.
The beginning of the year started of rough as we started writing our first essay. I had no idea how I was going to write it at all. I struggled and struggled, but I started to get the hang of it, or well I thought I did when I got the essay back i had mad a 64. I was only one point from passing it which was still a bad grade but like I said I have never been good at writing. Although I was not expecting a good grade, I still wondered what I had done wrong.
As you moved from story to story you were still left with the presence of the one before. When I first read the first story “Basement Magic” it took me while to get used to the writing language. Klages use of imagery and metaphors was abet different from what I am used to but is a strong component in supporting the story. I agree with Publishers Weekly when they say “this collection will linger in the memory long after reading” because after I finished the book, my mind was still replaying the stories. I was envisioning the characters over again, their actions, their emotions until it was far into my mind that I was thinking about it for days creating my own twist and sequels of those
In all honesty, I have been a participant of the commuter community since the first day that I commuted to campus which was the first day of this semester. However, I was not actively involved with my community at that time and had no reason in doing so until I came across this assignment. I would go to the commuters lounge every now and then but I would not talk to anyone or even think about talking to anyone. I would simply just sit at a table alone and do homework until I had to go to my next class. After this assignment was given and we had to start writing essays, I knew that I had to become involved.
I was not sure about what to write for my journals, I did not want to write more than just my daily duties. I ended up thinking that writing about my perspectives, goals, objectives about my duties at work and the homeless shelter system. I started working at the Aguila INC Shelter, which is my place of work and internship. I started in November 10, 2015 as a Case Manager and it has been a challenging place for me. I did not have the experience, knowledge and I dare to say the educational background that may make me feel more comfortable to work with Homeless Families.
Students never have a complete experience except on the installment plan (Gatto, part I, pars 11). I received flashbacks from my childhood, when I knew there could have been additional work to do before the bell rang. I always ended up being swept away into a completely different environment to advance skills in a random field of knowledge. To counter my agreement, the set class times did help in my erudition to what studies I relished more and the areas which I felt were unbearable. This determined my time management based on interests outside of school.
This year I set out to improve this very important skill. Time management is a skill that will be important all throughout your life. In the past I use to just barely turn my assignments in by the deadline or even sometimes past it. I used a planner and reminders on my phone to help me with this. I was tired of always feeling rushed to finish assignments or even chores around my house that I googled ways to improve on not being distracted which contributed to my time management.
