The first floor has 53 bays and each of the upper storeys has 56 bays. The wall around the first floor is 1.6 meters thick without original stone-laid base. People of later generations built one meter high wainscots for the wall with pebble stones to protect it from eavesdropping. When constructing this Tulou, only one staircase was set. Rooms on the first floor are used as kitchens, on the 2nd floor used as barns and above the 3rd floor used as living rooms.
An average middle class family trying to make a difference. It was a one story house filled to the brim with everything they might need. Usually there would be small hand-crafted wooden desks in the middle of the hallway. The once shiny wooden floor turned dark and dirty once the war started. The first thing Nixon noticed was the kitchen.
The book starts with Thomas waking up in a a dorm room while all the rest of the boys that were in the Maze with him are still asleep. Teresa is in another room across the hall.

There was never a single dull lecture from my grandfather, only stories filled with bold ventures that were not written in the history textbooks. After supper, grandpa placed both of his hands steadily on the armrests of the good old rattan chair and sat down. The chair was comfortable but felt completely different from a sofa or a bed. Though it was covered by curved golden rattan vines, it was actually structured by wood. It was stiff and sturdy, allowing one to straighten up their backs when watching the store whole

Biff explains to his brother both the appeal and the angst of working on a ranch. However, by the end of the play, Biff realizes that his father had the "wrong" dream. Biff understands that his father was great with his hands; Willy built their garage and put up a new ceiling.

Both poems reflect on how their fathers showed his love for his son, the time spent with their fathers, a maternal conflict, and their relationship with their father. Throughout “My Papa’s Waltz” and “Those Winter Sundays”, the author’s reflect on how their fathers were hard workers, although each memory is emotionally different. In “My Papa’s Waltz”, Roethke remembers his father coming home from work and his hands “Was battered on one knuckle” (Line 10). Even though the father had a long day at work, the boy recounts him coming home and dancing with him. Whereas “Those Winter Sundays”, Hayden recalls his fathers hard work by describing his “Cracked hands that ached/ From labor in the weekday…” (Line 3;4).
The main character in this book, Gogol, is constantly struggling to carve out his own life while juggling both his strict Bengali culture and independent American culture. In the Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, Gogol’s quest for self was at first impacted by his desire to blend in with American culture, however, when his father dies he begins to grow closer with his family and his journey is
(Most of the workshops were held in the main building.) Upon entering the small conference room, air conditioning streamed towards me and held me in a delightfully freezing embrace. The ceiling was low, the floors wooden or perhaps linoleum made to look wooden. There was a divider that was pushed hastily away like a disregarded accordion. Folded up tables and stacked chairs lined the walls of the small room that absolutely could seem no larger, even if the divider was dividing.
RACISM: A Misidentification of Ignorance? This is the story of an 18-year old boy who encountered love, hatred, betrayal, loyalty, happiness, and misery in his short life. When this boy was 15, he moved from India to the United States to pursue better higher education. He stepped in to the country with full of hope and excitement even though he didn’t know what comes next. The relaxation of the next thing what happened is the story of not a boy but of every immigrant coming into the country with hope.
Built in 2011, it has become our second home. Its long, about the shape of a rectangle with a pointy metal roof. Six white windows and two doors. One is on the right side and the other is on the porch. Its a large french door that has the option of leaving one door closed and one door to open.
Its rustic walls lack any decoration,with the exception of a singular black chipboard cutout of a man riding a horse sprawled across the wall. Like the rest of the interior the walls smelt of cardboard, the scent fully submerging you into the atmosphere that the church created. Metal fold out chairs, though not particularly comfortable, are lined in several rows across the room, allowing for substantial seating. The only things connecting the barn itself to the realm of Christendom is the large cross placed in the front of the room and the worshipers it keeps within its
Fearing perception, the pair embraced and kissed once more on the beach before boarding the bus home. On the bus, they sat across the aisle from one another, feigning detachment; it almost felt as if nothing had happened. James looked out his bedroom window. It was still snowing, perhaps even harder than before. The bronze light shimmered across the polaroid’s glossy coating, like sunlight dancing on the ivory tusks of elephants, as he moved it with his hand.

The guys always act like clowns as if they are comedians. I sit my phone and keys down against the wall and sit in my assigned spot by Brandon. Coach Dicks leisurely walks to the white board and writes down the workout for the day. We begin class with a slight jog around the gym twice and stretch. The workout is bench press and squats.
