I woke up on an especially cool winter morning and looked over to my mother’s side of the bed. She was not there, I knew that, but I secretly wished she was. I swung my legs off the bedside and rushed to the bathroom to brush my teeth and get myself ready for school.
The Living-dead is our closest link to the spiritual world. The Living-dead can be protectors for families and warn them of up and coming trouble. The Living-dead is still considered a part of the family that they were in when they were fully human. That being said the living dead are not fully treated like family. It is said that the living dead should not come around too often or humans will resent them the relationship between humans and the living dead is just supposed to be an occasional meeting. Humans are also supposed to offer food to The-living dead and show hospitality or else illness and other misfortunes might appear and could be connected to the anger and rage from the living-dead feeling unwelcomed. The Living-dead become fully dead and become spirits once the last living person on earth who knew them
The trip to Florida. Orlando to be exact. We had been planning this trip for a while. My whole family hopped in the new car we bought about a month ago. It was already beginning to look like the car we had before. Candy wrappers were in the floor, old water bottles still in the cupholders, and jackets, basketballs, and bags piled in the back. It didn’t matter though because we were about to have the time of our lives.
Have you ever moved houses? What about cities? Or states? Moving for many people is normal and doesn 't affect them whether they move to a different neighborhood or to a city far away. Some enjoy experiencing new places and new people, basically starting a new life. Those people probably want to branch out and expand farther from their roots. Some people on the other hand would like to just stay where they grew up with friends and family. Me, I was one of those people. I never imagined my life away from the home and the people I grew up with. Moving away from my hometown was one of my biggest challenges in life.

I will never forget that encounter the intense sun, the endless horizon, the infinite shades of blue that dissolved any boundary between sky and trees.The views were like swimming into a kaleidoscope, deceptively plain "Lake Winaukee" sign on the outside, but a show of colors on the inside, waiting to shock and, mesmerize me. Those colors! Sails on the horizon covered the lake; streaks of sunlight illuminated them, the swaying wildlife creating a dance of rhythm. Beautiful, preserved life synchronizing every movement with the camp sight creating one living entity. As I finish my 15 minutes of observations at camp, I realized I was ready for my first padded practice of the year.

The mesmerizing images of cowboys, Indians, and saloons conjures a pictorial view of, as we all know, the "Wild West". The Industrial Age changed the West in many ways. In times before the West, there had always been farmers. Farming, mining, and cattle were the life of the West. A great variety of Native American cultures ruled most parts of the area. By the end of the era, the West became filled with new immigrants of all kinds of ethnicities. In doing so, it become a place of diversity and complexity because of the variant differences of cultures. In the emergence of the Wild West, two distinct groups of people were warranted as outcasts by white settlers. According to white settlers, the Native Americans and Chinese did not fit into the image of what they upheld as daily living growing in the West. To get a better understanding of that time, personal accounts and factual evidence during the historical events of the Wild West will give readers a well-detailed experience through the advantages
When the Jews came to America they refer to themselves as ' 'greenhorns ' ' which meant they were foreigners in their dressing language, and thinking. One immigrant said ' 'I was unhappy because I did not know anything and I was frightened...When they used to call names like ' 'greenhorns ' ', I felt that I would rather die than hear it again ' ' ( 280).

I was putting my Halloween costume on when I heard something moving in my closet. I turn to the closet door half dressed with a curious look on my face. In my mind, it being Halloween, I thought I was just hearing things or my little brother was playing a prank on me. I walk out the door to my room, down the stairs and as I was about to walk out the front door my father caught me, “Where are you going?” he asked “Out, it’s Halloween I’m going to go trick-or-treating” I replied “No you are not you’re grounded”, “What? Why?” “Your grades mister until you can pick them up you can go out and do whatever, until then you are to stay in this house” I clinched my teeth together “Yes sir” I replied “If mom was here she’d let me go” I mumbled “What did you say?” dad asked “I said if mom was here she would let me go” “Well your mom isn’t here, is she?” “Yeah because of you, you left mom it’s your fault she’s not here, you lazy bum, all you ever did was go to the bar and drink every day, the only reason you have a job now is because mom isn’t here to support us.” “Go to your room” “Why because I’m right” “ I said GO TO YOUR ROOM, NOW!

One of the best days of my life was when we went deer hunting in South Dakota with my dad, brother, uncle and two cousins, but before I tell you about my trip let me tell you how it started. We left early in the morning to head to South Dakota where my cousin Jacob, who had just got a job as Game warden in Custer State Park, was taking us deer hunting. We got as far as Fargo, North Dakota when my cousin Keith asked my dad where our license were. Then to our surprise we forgot them back at home. We were lucky enough to have my two aunts and mom bring us the license because they were going to Fargo that day anyways for a girls shopping day. They just had to leave a little earlier. So we just waited in a parking lot until they
It was a gloomy September day and the bear hunting season was about to begin. The old farm truck was loaded full with barrels of cooking grease, assorted candy, birdseed and tubes of sticky frosting. We were to hunt four hours north in a little town called Orr, Minnesota. My family had an 80 acre lot that we used strictly for hunting. My mom volunteered to sit in the stand with me and videotape the hunt. She was excited as I to begin this new hunting experience. Near the Canadian border wildlife was abundant in many different forms and we were hoping to shoot a large black bear. I had only heard stories of bountiful black bear hunts and I was finally able to experience one of my own and make an everlasting memory.
