A Trip to Lake Michigan This year my family and some friends decided to do something different than our traditional beach vacation. We didn’t want to make the long trip down to Florida to go to the beach for a few days and then have to make the 2-day journey home. So what did we do? We decided to try out the northern beaches of the United States. Moratorium week, just after the fourth of July holiday, was really the only time that the families could get away without having a basketball practice, cross country practice, a baseball game, or worry about work calling.

And because of that this is my tale. It started off one early Saturday morning, when a bunch of us Gold fish decided to take a tour Of the old stream in the back of our house on Morningglory road. I love the name of the street as well. Old Bessie, that’s what we gold fish call the old Golden Retriever next door. He’s a nice old dog, wouldn’t hurt a fly but I would not get near his mouth, just in case.
It was so cold, but we all still went in the water. After a little time in the water we went to look for sea shells. I found a sea shell that was white and then it faded into a light red, I still have it today. The next day we had to leave, which was a bummer because I had a really great time. But before we left my dad said to me, “I have something for you!” He pulled out a seashell that said Florida in cursive on it.
Before Nick leaves for the city, he meets Gatsby for breakfast. Gatsby discusses draining the pool with his gardener and tells Nick, “you know, old sport, I’ve never used that pool all summer?” (153) Gatsby is self-aware: he acknowledges that he hasn’t given into the temptations of wealth during the summer, as instead he has been concentrating on winning Daisy’s love. He was nearly successful—he almost got Daisy to leave Tom—but in the end, he failed. While he is able to set aside his temptations for the summer, he can never completely escape them. On the day of his death, Gatsby plans to go for a swim: “he stopped at the garage for a pneumatic mattress that had amused his guests during the summer, and the chauffeur helped him pump it up” (161).
He started his life out poor, with only a dream of being the Jay Gatsby of West Egg, Long Island that he is now. "For over a year he had been beating his way along the south shore of Lake Superior as a clam-digger and salmon-fisher or in any capacity that brought him food and bed. (98) This quote shows that Gatsby did not always have the luxuries of his big warm house as a young man, he had to work for shelter. After that and other struggles, he decided he was going to become a successful and wealthy business man. Just like America, that after the trials of the war, went on to the twenties and thrived financially.
ESSAY 2 Reflective writing In this region of the Middle East, Kuwait, It is not easy to find such a wonderful weather; September 2014 with the warm sunshine, fresh air that rarely so good and a clear sky; it is Saturday and I have to start anew challenge. It’s my first day in a post graduate program in diabetes care, education and management, I have no idea about what will happen, but I have some expectations and imaginations; one week earlier, I have tried to discover the module through the information given on the website, it was nicely arranged and formative but it was late for me to do so, this wasn’t my actual plan. This is the first lesson I have learnt from this not started yet course; which is to prepare early. On that day “one of the rare weekends I have; as it comes once every four weeks because I have to work either on Friday or Saturday” I was active and ready for the new adventure, Dasman institute for diabetes is the place where we should start the course, everything was easy and quick, starting from car parking, registration up to the study classes, all the people I have seen where friendly, active and enthusiastic but some of them looks worried. For me the most important aspect was to get engaged as quick as possible to get the most benefit from this course as I haven’t been able to prepare well, I know it’s my fault, hoping to avoid in the next module.
Even though last night was rough I was sad when I realized that today would be my last day here. I soon realized that I wouldn't have any time to go biking, boating, or hunting but the thought of coming back one day took that grief away. I wanted to make my last day memorable so I said goodbye to Bonnie, Tom, and Charlie and I was off. While starting my hike I realized how lucky I was to be one of only ~11,000 people that visit every year. I decided that after my hike I would end my expedition by going to Silver Salmon creek in hopes of seeing some Bristol bay salmon.
But this time we brought our fishing poles. Me my cousin and my dad went to the big doc away from all of the people swimming and started fishing. My cousin caught a few fish and so did my dad but I didn’t catch anything yet. Right when we were about to leave I felt a tug on my pole. I pulled back and had the fish hooked.
