I’d consider a score of thirteen to one a butt-kicking, especially coming against one of the proudest travel teams in all of Ohio. With a record of three wins and no losses, our hopes were high. That night we went back to hotel we stayed at and had one of the most enjoyable nights of my life. To this day I still remember it fondly. Buffalo Wild Wings with friends then staying up until twelve-thirty running around the hotel playing tag probably wasn’t the right thing to do eight hours before our next game, but it was enjoyable and luckily for us it didn’t bite us in the butt.
(“There was a scientists at the Washington State University who stayed there for about 2 years before he got some good info about Bigfoot”). The info was about a pair of footprints found in the wild. He got casts of the prints and analyzed them. He found that there were different prints of the two and found that one foot print had come from a crippled beast because the it was probably 8 feet tall. Bigfoot is most likely fake!
Odysseus is a true hero because he shows his heroic efforts throughout his long journey, even though he makes some mistakes along the way. He is just like anybody else trying to be a hero, who is human and humans make mistakes. He showed how he is very intelligent, how he can be super strong, emotionally and physically, and he displayed his great amount of courage in all of the journeys and obstacles he
Cunningham. When Scout sees him in the mob in front of the town jail, she’s confused because she had been previously told that the Cunninghams are good people. However, now he wants to potentially harm someone else. Therefore, she asks her father who explains that “Mr. Cunningham was part of a mob last night, but he's still a good man” (210). He didn’t do it because he's a bad person; it was the mob's frenzy that made him do that.
In the book when Percy returned Chiron was jovial and relieved but in the movie Chiron was irate with him for leaving but glad he made it back. This is important because the reactions were virtually complete opposite. Additionally, There was no Oracle or prophecy and without the Oracle Percy would have never known about the solstice and getting the master bolt back to Zues. Furthermore, without the prophecy he wouldn't have known about "the god who turned." ( Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief (book) )
This theme is shown through Kevin, as he is tiny for his age, and has a physical disability, but is extremely intelligent. The author portrays this theme on page 54 by having Max say, “‘And anyhow it’s not fair how everybody always says ‘Poor Kevin’ just because he didn’t grow… You can ask him anything and he knows what it means.’” Max knows that even though Kevin is the size of a kindergartener, he is smart enough to be in college. Also, he knows that other people should never judge him on his looks, because on the inside he is so much more. Most people who meet Freak think he can not do anything because he is “disabled”.
My Michigan Hero Everyone likes superheroes, right? They all wear awesome costumes and have special powers, but not all superheroes are that obvious. David Newman is in eighth grade and is a living, real superhero. To people who don’t know his story, they see him as a normal boy.
I full of excitement (Absolute), got to packing as soon as I found out. We got there by driving I believe my parents realized their mistake at about hour two because of hearing "are we almost there" every couple of minutes. We left at night so that we could sleep most of the ride, but I couldn’t, I was so excited. When we finally got there, it was amazing and all I had seen was the hotel room. We stayed in the resort so that things were more continent.
“Suitors plague my mother-against her will-/… By god, it’s intolerable, what they do-disgrace,/ my house a shambles!” (Homer. 2. 55- 68) is an excerpt from Telemachus’ speech to rid the suitors. He literally tells the suitors that they are leeches and they lack the guts to properly ask for his mother’s hand in marriage by asking her father.
He was too smart for his own good. I walked up to him and he came over snorting and pawing and carrying on like he was the toughest thing since black powder. I put out my hand and he tried to snatch it from my arm. Just then Big Jake came over and he settled right down. Came over and nuzzled him.
An object that has great significance to me is, a Build-a-Bear I got from my grandmother for Christmas almost ten years ago. He’s brown with black and grey highlights and his name is Honey. This specific bear is still so important to me because sadly, my grandmother passed away in October of 2013. Obviously when I first got it, I wasn’t thinking about the thought or meaning of the gift, I was just so ecstatic that my grand mom’s voice was coming through a bear. I went everywhere with him, wouldn’t put him down for anything.
Saturday seemed to drag on but finally it was show time. Walking into the arena was the most nerve-wracking moment of my life; the bleachers were packed and there were people with big cameras everywhere. It felt as though I was famous! As the announcer called my name the only thing I could think about was making a solid run. My run for the first round was good considering my heart was about to beat out of my chest.
We started descending down the hill at a rapid speed, fast and faster, going up and down over bumps. As we started going down I could feel myself almost standing because of the bar, great I could potentially die if I don 't follow the rules. Instead of just letting myself stand I forced myself in with my elbows in my hips and my hands on the bar pushing me down. When the ride stopped panic arose in my parents voices. “Morgan where are you !”
