Everything we do is science! Over the summer, I went to Six Flags in New Jersey with my cousins. We went on many rides and it was a fantastic day. One of the rides we went on was the “Batman”. On this ride, you’re placed in a sitting position with your feet dangling off the edge. The creators of this ride basically wanted you to experience the feeling of flying, like batman. There’s a bunch of loops on that ride that will take you upside down, reverse, you name it! It was truly an incredible experience.

This also ties into our lives today about how all people in society take responsibility for themselves and each other in our daily lives.
Snow Falling on Cedars is a 1994 novel written by David Guterson, situated in the fictional island of San Piedro, America. The story centers around the trial of Kabuo Miyamoto, a Japanese man accused of murdering the white fisherman Carl Heine. Set during post-World War II, anti-Japanese sentiments lead to biased proceedings despite the absence of conclusive evidence. Throughout the trial, news reporter Ishmael Chambers follows the case while struggling with his past affair and unrequited love for Kabuo's wife, Hatsue. Guterson effectively communicates complex ideas of prejudice, fate, and the influence of the past on the present through the use of symbolism and characterisation.

Snowfall is a pretty sight, the world is still; no movement, even the air stays still. When you look up at the cloudy gray sky and see the snowflakes fall they float down in a graceful path that would make ballerinas look clumsy. It 's a euphoric moment almost, the kid inside you wakes up and without thinking everyones impulsive habit is to scream “It 's snowing!” and raise their hands to the sky asking for more. In this case, I wanted less snow. Leo and I have been driving along highway 25 for only two hours, once we left colorado springs we noticed the first of the snowflakes fall about 30 minutes out. Pulling over for that silent moment in a target parking lot. Looking back it was a pleasant short memory Leo exclaimed
