Every time we caught a fish it smelt really bad because the fish sometimes just flat out had a disgusting smell. After an hour we caught a lot more pretty fish with black stripes down them and so we were gonna call it a day because it was like 5:00 in the afternoon. So we packed up and gathered all of our stuff and we looked at our phone’s and Will’s mom called him 10
In the middle of the battle, a messenger arrives to Jiro, stating that Ayabe is marching towards the First Castle. Jiro has to retreat in haste. Kurosawa's skill in directing a plethora of actors in the same scene found its apogee in "Ran" and this scene is a distinct example. The troops move harmonically, showing their discipline and the various armies stand apart from each other due to their coloring, that matches the official one of the leaders. As Kurosawa uses almost exclusively long shots, through many static cameras, cutting between them, even the key figures appear irrelevant
However, Pythias needed to have a hostage replace him. If he failed to return, then the hostage replacing Pythias would die. Damon volunteered to become the hostage. He held great faith in Pythias that he would come back, and he did. “Presently the excitement grew more intense still as a swift runner could be seen approaching the palace courtyard at an astonishing speed, and wild shrieks of relief and joy went up as Pythias, breathless and exhausted, rushed head long through the crowd and flung himself into the arm of his beloved friend…” (Russell, 1232).
The first day of middle school is also the first day I have ever rode the bus. I don 't really like riding the bus because it 's loud, the bus smells weird, and it 's way too crowded. OI got lost the first time trying to find my bus. I walked around for like five minutes trying to find bus number nine. Luckily my friend Mackenzie told me which bus to ride that would take me to the same place.
With his long blonde hair and muscular body, he might have been the most handsome man I’ve seen in this town. That boy I had seen on July 13th, 1950 was indeed the Tony West. As I was walking home that night there were people filled in the streets ready to fight for their rights and freedoms by early dawn. So I had to take the back way. Even though it was 15 more minutes to get home, I liked going that way once in a while there were always new things to see, whether it was new
Splash! There I go again failing to water ski. Why does it look so easy for others to do things, but when you try you fail infinitely? Well, four summers ago I was having the same problem. I spent a lot of that time falling face first into water.
This theme I felt matched Roethke’s poem “My Papa’s Waltz” sense of his adolescent mind clouding what may have been actually occurring. I continued this theme when I wrote, “It dashed behind a vegetation veil; I ran after it with great persistence”. I used of the phrase “vegetation veil” to produce a jungle type image in the reader’s head, I did this to continue the nostalgic viewpoint, and to add more imagery to the poem. In the final stanza, I chase the faux deer around a corner, and I find a raging waterfall. I actually did find a rather large waterfall on the trip; that was not an exaggeration.
The Climb I remember thinking oh, this will be easy it is probably not steep at all and will only take a few minutes. Well, I was wrong that’s for sure. Over the summer my family decided to hike the Disney Trail, we would go all the way up and all the way back down and we thought, well it is probably easy. There were about 10 sights before we got to the final top one, and about every sight we would stop like it was the top. It went on and on and on.
Lacking self-confidence can decrease one's' eager to learn, ability to focus, and the wish to take risks. I've always been a person who was shy and lacked self-confidence. Even if everyone else thought I was the best at something, I somehow found my way to feeling self-doubted. I tried blocking out the doubt several times, but I just don't happen to feel myself. It was August 2008, on a breezy afternoon I decided to join the soccer team nearby.
That is exactly what he is doing driving around the lake, trying to trigger positive images from his life but he is not able to, he just keeps going around and around the lake like the sprinkler. The Song Tra Bong River is a symbol of the once pure lake that would turn to mud and create a disaster that would overflow his life for a long time, if not forever. Norman explains that the river “was exactly like any other river, nothing special” but in the wet seasons that “the rains never stopped, not once, and so after a few days the Song Tra Bong overflowed its banks and the land turned into a deep, thick muck” (O’Brien, 135). This represents the turning point in his life from clear and simple to a never ending rain turning the river into muck. During the war his life felt heavy and difficult to get through.
He believes that once they allow one person to start doing stuff to the river, everybody will start to mess with it. He thinks that greedy, money-hungry people will do whatever they want to the river for some cash. He believes this will lead to the river being ruined. One time Luke got sucked under the current while not wearing a life jacket and almost drowned. He loved it and said that he never felt closer to nature than in that moment.
Next, we arrived at the meet. While we came off the bus we became very delighted because it was so hot with about 50 people on the bus we took. We all walked to our camp and put down our bags. While we were putting down our bags I forgot my knee brace because my left knee was bothering me. But I found it eventually.
More and more people began to notice Custer and an artist by the name of Alfred Waud started to draw pictures of Custer and print them (McNamara, n.d.). Waud wrote "Custer charged and charged again here capturing and destroying trains and making many prisoners.” Custer continued to fight and helped end the war by cutting off General Lee’s last escape route (Custer 2014). He was a general filled with energy and bravery that is hard to find anywhere these
I have been waiting since the start of summer for this day, the day to go against Topeka West the school that have been talking stuff for the longest. There was so much hype about this game and it was finally here, when the bell ringed at the end of the day i rushed out of class and got on the bus to head over to chandler our practice field. When we got there we all the football players loaded off the bus and when we got off there was a table of chips,water,gatorade,PB & J and fruit snacks so we didn’t play on an empty stomach. After we ate and got ready coach talk to us for a little bit and then we got on the bus to head to Hummer sports park, it was a loud bus but i don 't think coach cared because we was hype going to play t-west. Topeka high and Topeka west have been rivals for ever in almost every sport but mainly football.
As we stood on the freshly cut grass motionless, in complete despair, we soon realized the effort we had given was simply not enough. We could have ran those suicides harder, connected one more pass, added 5 more pounds in the weight room. Although the crowd was roaring, everyone in a white uniform stood as if there wasn’t a sound heard for miles. With 56 seconds left on the clock, we all knew our season was coming to an end. The time that we thought was boundless, was ended by a buzzer that only brought disappointment.
