I could feel myself begin to freak out. As she began to clamp my nose, I asked her “Is this going to hurt as bad as I think it is?” She responded, “No, you will be fine I promise. Now, do you want me to count or should I just go ahead and do it?” Once the words left my mouth that she could just do it, she immediately pierced it without hesitation. Tears began to stream down my face, but not because of the pain though. I was so happy to have finally gone through with something and at that moment, I felt rebellious that I did something my ex would not agree with.
I was so happy that I started screaming so loud that everyone in my house thought I was in some type of trouble. As the night got closer, I asked my mom for a ride to the movie theater as she drove me, I didn’t know how to react in front of him. Time passed, and he texted me he was already there, I got more nervous and started walking towards him, to the place where he was waiting. I didn’t know whether to hug him or say hello, so I did both but I hugged him so fast I hit his arm. The date was starting to go badly, after getting the tickets to the movie, he asked me if I wanted something from the snack bar, I was so hungry, but I didn’t want to seem fat, so I told him “no, thank you.” This date was my unforgettable moment, because it was the first date a guy has ever asked me to go out on, but it is also unforgettable for all the little shy mistakes I made in front of him and staying hungry for the whole movie.
Earlier that evening Jessica’s parents left her in charge of her four younger siblings Iris, Jessie, Blaze, and Nicki while they went out for date night. Throughout the night they played games and watched movies, while the movie was playing the twins Iris and Jessie fell asleep on the couch so Jessica had to bring them upstairs but before she went she told blaze and Nicki to not move from the couch because she would be right back. After Jessica put the twins to bed she was walking downstairs and as she peaked over the banister blaze and Nicki were nowhere to be seen, a wave of panic rushes through Jessica as her eyes start darting frantically all over the living room. Afraid she would wake the twins by calling out for blaze and Nicki she decided to just look in their usual hiding spots
It’s December 12th, the day after my 17th birthday. I am awoken to yelling and my heart is beating out of my chest and I can hear it ringing in my head. I look at my phone and the time reads 4 in the morning. I climb down my bed so fast that I almost trip on my way down and hug my mother who is sleeping beneath me in the spare bed. My mother lets go of me and I can still hear the arguing at this very moment.
My Military Journey As I finished packing my bags, I hear the doorbell ring. I stumble over my bag trying got out of my bedroom to the door. I looked though the peephole and there stood my recruiter SFC Jackson come to pick me up. My parents were still asleep so I awake them and told them I was leaving and they hugged me and said, “We love you”. I tried not to tear up but I could not hold back the tears from waling in my eyes.
Adam walked up front and when he saw me a big smile crossed his face. Well, well Big Zach Taylor and Big Jake he said holding out his hand. You look well and so does Big Jake. Come with me I have someone I want you meet. I followed Adam back into his workshop and was introduced to the fellow sitting near his bench.
I wondered’’ how did they know which room we were in?’’ The real reason they came was because they were doing a knock-knock ditch. When they found out that we were in there, they were a little disappointed. Cochilla and Taiya’s mom told them to stop and they didn’t. The hotel had later found out that we were playing knock-knock ditch because people were complaining. When they found out who was involved, the three kids tried to blame it on us.
“The Lottery” employs contrast to effectively deliver the story’s theme while encouraging the reader to question what is acceptable and what is not in one 's own culture.

My first night I walked into the bathroom couldn 't find the light switch and cried in the darkroom. I wanted to go home I felt like I was literally dying of homesickness but once I started working I knew everything was going to be okay because I was getting better I was happier. On visits I did watch my cousins arriving at my house they ran from car to house excited and quickly ran to embrace me with a
to which I responded, "Minnie Lee." His confused look told me that I had done something horribly wrong, something from which I could never redeem myself, but thankfully my mother saved me from a slow-but-painful death from embarrassment by answering the question for me. This was the model for the rest of my day, as well as the following one. Meeting new people is always an awkward endeavor, multiplied by each new person one must meet. In an environment full of people, this becomes
