I however remained where I was seated and didn't move. "Excuse me, Miss, but you will have to give up your seat like the others around you." "Why do I have to give up my seat? I was on the bus first, and it isn't right for you to force me to move. I've been working hard all day, and I am too tired to stand in the back of this bus," I said to the
The quote proves her statement to be logical because these are questions that people involved with this topic think about when the boy/ girl situation is brought up. And the last example of logos is that she will show her daughter that if she does start to believe that she’s not a girl anymore she will be there for her. “If my daughter does begin to feel that the gender in her mind and the sex of her body don’t match, I will be supportive. I will research puberty blockers and hormones (more than I already have). I will listen to her and make decisions accordingly, just as I did when she turned 3 and asked for a tie and a button-down shirt” (Davis 12).
Her mother always nags on Connie saying that she should be like June who follows the rules and is a good role model. Her mom tells her, “Why don’t you keep your room clean like your sister?.. You don’t see you sister using that junk” (988). Connie does this so that way she can see what she likes and what she does not like. Connie’s actions also coincide with her being fifteen.
After running away and coming across the bright pink house, Lily was given one of the greatest gifts, a family. If Lily never saw the picture on the jar of honey, she would not have found the Calendar sisters, learned about her mother, and live in Tiburon with people who appreciate her presence. The smallest details led Lily to something amazing. Even though Lily had to deal with a lot of pain and suffering it ended up working out in the end because now she doesn’t have to live a lonely and scared life. Lily’s new life has started and it will be the life she wished she had ever since she was four- years-
Point of View The fitting description of turtle beach is “beautiful scenery.” The best decision I have made so far today seems to have been coming here. Sitting while watching love-birds walk past me, holding each other’s arms and young couples struggling to keep their hands away from their partners but ending up losing the battle makes me forget the stress I had earlier in the day. The beach is clean and less crowded; I guess the silence has really proven to be medicine when I needed it most. There are two small children playing not very far from where I am sitting. The way they enjoy playing in the white, powdery sand makes me look back with a lot of nostalgia how I enjoyed my early days.
It was December 25, 1996, that evening; the Ramsey’s were at a friend’s house, having their annual Christmas party. Late that night, when it was time to leave the party, patsy and john Ramsey’s daughter Jonbenet was sound to sleep on the way back home. When they went to put her to bed, little did they know that it would be the last time they see their daughter alive. Although JonBenet Ramsey’s killer may still be out there, her mother Patsy is most likely the suspect of the crime. On the morning of December 26, the Ramsey’s were supposed to go a family vacation to Disneyland.
Introduction: Twenty years after the release of the ultra-famous movie Clueless, teenagers and young adults still relate to this movie’s magical and adorable plot line. Clueless was based on Jane Austen’s novel Emma. Both stories consist of a young girl who plays matchmaker, but ultimately puts her own happiness and romance in danger. For example, in the beginning scene Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is seen shopping at Ralph Lauren and driving in her brand new white, four-door Jeep. She makes it well known her father is rich, similar to Emma, whose father is also rich.
I actually just half smiled and said, “Nothing much, I’m doing great.” I could tell that he knew I was lying, but I just snickered away, and he continued eating his chocolate donut. I work at city hall as a city council representative. Work usually sucks, but the other day was even worse than usual. This annoying, but determined lady, came in rambling on and on about taking the garbage out of this abandoned lot, and she brought some of it with her! The only reason we decided to go through
After dinner, I hurried upstairs to bed, I’m I was extremely excited to finally be on my way to arrive in Washington DC. As usual, my brother made a wise smartass comment: “It’s only 9 bud, what the heck are you doing going yo bed?” I ignored him, which is rare; I will not have have to deal with his comments for 4 whole days. I slowly shut my door, shut off the lights,
I still remember July 31, 2015 like it was yesterday. I was lying in bed at five in the morning, contemplating the day I had ahead of me on a warm summer morning. Hearing a knock on my bedroom door, my mom walked in and whispered that she was leaving for the hospital with my dad. All I could manage to do was hug her. My mom was scheduled to be induced to have my youngest brother, Andrew.
