“Guess he's been in Starkfield too many winters. Most of the smart ones get away. (Prologue)” Within this quote we see that this place called Starkfield becomes a trap for the people living there. The ideology that people will either escape or become stuck there shows the theme of dreaming and hoping to leave that place for something better. This also shows the theme of being isolated because Ethan tries to leave he becomes stuck from living in Starkfield for so long.
In World War 2, the whole period of 4 years can be considered as war with no freedom while the whole setting of Narnia can be considered as winter but never Christmas. Both of them were trapped inside a dark age for a period of time until light came. This allows the book to have a dark mood at the beginning, creating multiple conflicts, which gradually turns into a happier mood. Because of these reasons, World War 2 has changed the
The weather also had an impact on the decision for the new position. Many staff members did not work during the snowstorm which resulted in little to no hours. One of the men applying for the position said that to a co-worker who was also applying that they should say they both worked 35 hours when they only worked 20. Working in such a large facility it is difficult for the boss to keep track of employees hours especially when few people are there. It took some convincing but he finally agreed and said they would validate for one another.
Waldo’s central focus in his diary entry is the struggles the army went through at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777. He talks about how the troops are becoming sick, are running out of food, are exhausted, and have very poor living conditions in the harsh cold. According to Albigence Waldo, “Here all is confusion, smoke and cold, hunger and filthiness.” Additionally, he discusses the effects of these harsh conditions on the soldiers. Their situation causes them to become downcast with loss of faith and hope of surviving through the winter. The winter of 1777 at Valley Forge was one of sickness, trials, and gloom for the soldiers fighting in the war.
We learned about how these colonies couldn’t farm. Their land was very thin and stony with little level soil. Their long winters made it difficult too. Since the New England colonies couldn’t farm, they made their wealth by trading across seas. Next, Henry talked about the Middle colonies.
The poem Journey of the Maji by T.S. Elliot talks about well, the Journey of the Maji, however it is not talked about in the same sense that it usually is. Instead of the typical idea of it being some amazing journey that is worth it all, it talks about it in a darker sense. He talks about how it was the worst time of the year because of the freezing weather, as well as the lack of shelter, lack of fire, hostile cities, and the extremely high prices. By the end of the stanza, they start to question whether or not the whole journey and the effort they made was worth it.
After being let down by the gloomy vibe of Manhattan, Medina started getting suspicious of what his first day was going to bring. “Inauspicious, blank, with shades half-raised on the windows, it could have been a factory or a prison”(72). Medina also explains that the snow is completely gray. Later in the day Medina witnesses a teacher dragging a girl down the hall, and then he smacks her. Medina was confused and he could not believe what he saw.
Compared to my normal life, the week-long camp was very different in terms of the people along with my surroundings. These difference made me uncomfortable as I had no leadership, outgoingness, and cultural awareness. However, the differences in the camp allowed me to become a leader, more of a social person, and more culturally aware. Travelling into the unknown is a big risk, but people still need to reach out and try new things. Otherwise, they will be stuck in their “hobbit hole”
This is very ironic because it is common knowledge that Himmel Street is “not exactly the epitome of idyllic Molching living.” The neighbourhood is portrayed as very bleak an poor.

(Opening paragraph) Introductory sentence- life in a medieval castle is not a good place to live due to the serious situations that makes people not want to stay because “the rooms are extremely cold”, “it has a really bad smell” and “the windows are extremely small to look out of.” People would not think it is a safe place to stay overnight due to it being uncomfortable for a living circumstance, and finding a better way to make it more stable for everyone to feel like there at home. Overall back then the Medieval castles was very destructive and dangerous, therefore living in a medieval castle may not be a good place to live. Today when we look at a castles they are a lot bigger, has more windows, a better smell and even shows a reflection of the castle in the water. (Second paragraph) Introductory sentence- The Hall was elevated to the upper story of the castle and the entrance had a side door that led to
It was the Winter at Valley Forge. I am not going to re-enlist in the war because we have poor conditions, many people are dying, and we are getting very little support. The first reason I am not going to re-enlist in the war is because there were very poor conditions. In document C, the diary of Dr. Waldo, he says “Poor food-hard lodging-cold weather-fatigue-nasty cloaths-nasty cookery-vomit half my time…. why are we sent out here to starve and freeze?” They are dying out here of the poor conditions.
In Arnold 's case, poverty is a significant situation, which has impacted his life into many negative aspects. Poverty among Native Americans affects them more physically than academically or socially because they possess limited services and transportation. In the book, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, Arnold has an onerous time getting to school because he lives on the reservation and his school is 22 miles away. In one situation, Arnold said "My dad was supposed to pick me up. But he wasn 't sure if he 'd have enough gas money...If they didn 't come, I 'd start walking...Twenty-two miles.
There were a lot of poverty. They had no heat to be warm at winter time, they had cardboard coverings as their homes; the card board houses were not strong enough for the weather they had. The houses had holes and also numerous amounts of people had to stay in one household. A lot of the Natives used alcohol and drugs. They did not have enough money to
Being in the snow isn’t always fun. It is January 1, 1778 and I have been serving my term at Valley Forge. I have been very miserable which has made my experience here dreadful. I’ve finished my time as a soldier but I have the option to re-enlist or come back home. As much as I want to stay and help out the army, I’ve chosen to come back home.
