Under the influence of a certain curse (as a rule, imposed with the help of some magical object), the princess falls into a kind of lethargic sleep, but physically, she remains alive, but its consciousness is turned off and the heroine stays conditions until the evil spells are destroyed (usually by the prince). Sleep is the Spiritual rebirth. Such a state of fairy-tale characters can symbolize the degeneration of their souls, a kind of spiritual perfection, something similar to the degeneration of the caterpillar into a butterfly. Which means plunging into such a dream, the heroine seems to die for her past life, all the terrible events that have happened to her, and after awakening she passes on to a higher

My querencia is a place where your with girls that you consider your family or your sisters, mine querencia is a softball field.

“Strike two”, the umpire yells again. I think to myself, here is my chance to prove to everyone that I am not this weak kid who can barely hit the ball. The pitcher is back in the center of the mound; she is ready to throw the final pitch that could end the game. She lets lose a 60 mph fastball right down the center. It is the dream pitch for every softball player out there.
Holden thought to himself as he watched his sister Phoebe grab for the ring; realizing that you can’t stop everyone from doing what they need to do. Phoebe is the symbol, she is a symbol for untainted and unbesmirched youth. Phoebe, though we know her for only a portion of the book, changes Holden. She allows him to understand that if people need to do something that they will do that. for instance, when Phoebe is talking to Holden after he writes a note to her, she tells him that she is leaving; she says that she will be very good.

I have the whole world at the palm of my hands, and it is up to me to figure what I am trying to accomplish. Everybody has a lot of potential, and people make that one mistake, that change their life forever. Me personally, I feel like I am not going to make that mistake because I have been taught what is right from wrong. I prefer to live the clean, take no risk, because I see from
I realized that even the things that we hate doing the most, are absolutely necessary to us because they define who we are as a person, and they could bring us several benefits in the future. For example, the reason a person continues to go to school even if they hate it is because of the benefits they get out of it in the future. The benefits of this example would be related to a job or career, and eventually having the financial freedom, all by doing something that you temporarily despise. Basically saying that no matter how bad things are now, it will absolutely be worth it in the future. After having my watershed moment, I was offended by the fact that I was taught at a young age that we should only do things that we found fun and nonstressful.
Some people have the idea that thinking of random facts about yourself would actually be an effortless task. One fact, I happen to be writing this the day before the due date because of two reasons. One, I have always been a tremendous procrastinator. Two, it’s surprisingly hard to pull facts about myself out of thin air. I go through the whole phase where I want all my facts to make me sound cool and interesting.
She also was the first woman to throw batting practice to all 30 MLB teams. She once said, “If you tell a girl she can’t play baseball, what else is she going to believe she can’t do.

Over the years I have been able to create a face for myself in Plymouth Canton Little League, throwing a perfect game, 18 batters up and 18 batters down, becoming the only girl in the city to do that.
On Friday night I was playing softball. I was playing in right field, the girl up to bat hit the ball. The ball she hit was a line drive right to me, instead of me catching the ball it hit me and I fell and hit the ground. That’s the last thing I remembered before I woke up in the hospital. This hospital was not a place I recognized.
As soon as I opened the door I stood there in silence, listening. I couldn 't hear anything..nothing. It was so quiet I could hear myself breathing but that was it. With the way this place was made, I wasn 't even sure if it was possible to hear anything unless someone was standing directly above me. With a long drawn out sigh and disappointment coursing through my body, I went back into the awful gray room and shut the massive metal door behind me.
This was it, the day was finally here. It was the day I had been waiting on for a while. It was the day of the softball camp. It was when the softball team got to teach younger girls. We were a little nervous going into the camp because the girls looked up to us.
