Soon more and more white people started boarding the bus, the bus driver told all the black people sitting in the middle row to go to the back. They all got up except for Rosa. She didn’t back down she sat there the whole way home. In the chapter, “Twenty years gone, and I am back again” of the Odyssey, Odysseus shows bravery while planning to come back home with his son Telemachus, “If they make fun of me in my courtyard, let your ribs cage up your spring heart, no matter what I suffer no matter if they pull me by the heels, or practice shots at me to drive me out. Look on hold your anger” (Homer 900).
When they leave the tavern, they see Kenny attempted to leave the truck bed and put him back in place. Kenny’s teeth are chattering and he tells Frank he’s hurting, so Frank appeases Kenny with a mantra and they start driving again. Tub realizes he left the shortcut given to them by the farmer’s wife back at the tavern, but they decide to continue. Though the snowfall lightens it only gets colder and Frank and Tub stop at the next roadhouse they see. While they’re warming up in the roadhouse, Tub confesses to Frank that his obesity is all his own fault, not hereditary, comparing his poor diet to that of a double life.
Katniss gathers all of her things to go into the woods for a picnic and sets off, she plans on meeting Gale at an old house her dad and her used to go to. Katniss gets to the old brick house and sets the fire. She is left waiting by herself for about an hour, that is when Gale finally shows up with a bow slung around his shoulder and a dead turkey in hand. Katniss offers the gloves Cinna wanted to give to him, but he denies the gift because he is still very mad at her for getting engaged with Peeta. Katniss then tells him how President
We did stop for breakfast, but because we were so wired, couldn’t eat and spent the next few hours smoking a bong full of hash until we were ready to crash. Chris pointed out an extra bedroom, so Bonnie went in stripped off her clothes crawled into bed and passed out. Waking up at around dinner time, Bonnie and I took a shower together soaping up each other and making out before deciding to go out and party some more. After another night of speed, pot, and booze I decided to mix it up a bit by screwing for the rest of the night. We finally passed out, and it was lunchtime before we next saw daylight and began to prepare ourselves for the drive back to
My father and I were traveling in our truck from our house, tired from packing for our trip to our box blind in the woods. We were going hunting for a deer that morning at four A.M. We were nervous feeling the pressure of hunting in our stomachs. It was a cold morning nearly fifty-degrees outside, cold enough that I needed warm clothing. I felt cramped while riding with all of our gear in the cab with us, wishing I could get out and stretch my legs. Eventually I fell asleep, listening to music on my iPod wondering when we 'll reach our destination.
They knew it was self defense but they didn't want to take that risk. So, they went to Dally and they got some money or food, a gun, and a jacket for Ponyboy. They went to Dally because they knew if they wanted to get out of town and away from prying cops, they knew Dally would be the person to make it happen. While they were in the church Dally had sent them to a week prior, Jonny fell asleep with a cigarette still lit without Jonny realizing it. Later that day, Dally showed up and took them to lunch for some real food.
The pungent smell of manure would waft down the hallways as students walked to and from class, I was always late to school because I would get trapped behind tractors on the single lane highway, and there were always pickup trucks in the parking lot. That being said, I loved this school with all of my heart. Friday night football would always make the front of our small-town newspaper, our school spirit was incredible, I knew everyone in my high school by name, and the teachers had great relationships with the students. However, the second trimester of my senior year, everything changed.
one of my other cherished memories from color guard is when we were suppose to have practice but it got canceled so me and a couple of other color guard members walked around town it was so funny we went to Mario's pizza a pared of us with our flags and all eyes locked on us we sat down shoved all of our flags into one booth and sat in the other and we went up to the counter and ordered a large cheese pizza and sat down then mason gets up to get napkins and knocks a whole shelf down that had things on it and I had to help him clean it all up then we resumed eating our pizza then Pj walks in all hyped up on sugar and starts yelling so we made him do laps around the parking lot that was a fun day Another color guard memories is when we were first learning how to do toaster turns and when you fist do them they hurt a lot it was funny well not me doing it seeing the seventh graders doing it or when was our first time ever with a flag and our choch said that we had seven minutes to mess around it was so funny cause we were trying to do tosses and you kind of just hear bunch o clanging cause none of us know the proper way to catch it it was really funnt so those are some of my cherished childhood memories hope you
My mom woke us up and said, “ Go inside take showers and go to bed sleepy heads.” So I did, I went to go lay on my bed to go to bed. The moon shined the window to give a little light in the peaceful room, and I thought, what a
“I made a pizza” I told her. “Oh ok, how about a snack” my mom asked me. “Ok” I said an went and grabbed a s’mores pop tart. Then we got in the car and rode to town to try nnb b outs. As I walked in the door, I saw so many friends, I saw them like a week ago.
On the bus it sounded like an abandoned house, all of my teammates were locked in thinking about the war we would soon face. Unlike me, scratching my thigh because of the uncomfortable bus seat and trying to close the tedious bus window from letting the frigid breeze fly through. I could only hear Tyler Boatwright’s rap music from his ipod, it was extremely loud. The distractions all around me hindered me from concentrating on the game. My inability to concentrate was something my dad and I had just discussed 30 minutes ago in the car when he dropped me off at the buses to go to the game.
I’m falling asleep at the wheel. I’ve been driving for 16 hours straight, hauling freight across the border between Nevada and California. Yawning, my eyes briefly flutter shut and I lose sight of the road. My eyes flick open and I straighten up my lorry. This post originally appeared on Kotaku UK.
The Farmers Reunion Ten years ago there was a field trip. It started like this 14 kids 3 teachers and one bus driver it was a rainy day. Everybody hopped on a bus and they took off to some historic cornfields about 40 miles away. They had lots of fun until the ride home, they drove about 5 miles till they here the bus pop and make a lot of racket then the bus starts to slow down and they come to a sudden stop. They broke down so the teachers started to walk back.
(In Grimsrud, you had to finish your lunch before you could go outside. (so if your tray was gone you could go outside. )And the only recess we had before lunch was the recess when you first came to school. I was always very hungry, so I never wasted the school food (It was actually good they 're) and because of that I never got outside before the kids who would take over our snow cone station. But if we ever got the station before the big kids, nobody would come so we just decided to get into the snow fort building contest that happens every
I remember waking up for school that day extremely sick with a cold, I know it sounds weak, but it was really bad. As much as I wanted to stay home and spend the day resting, I had to go to school, which was terrible. As soon as I finished class I went straight home and tried to sleep the cold off. After a nice long refreshing nap I packed up my gear and went to the rink where the bus was picking us up. The bus ride was about an hour and a half, a lot of the guys peed in bottles because we got lost and the ride took longer than expected.
