I was taught to cast a fishing line and how to handle a 12 gauge shotgun by my father and my Uncle Joe. We’d spend countless hours fishing for trout, but most of our time went towards duck hunting and it is still the best way for me to relax and clear my mind. Duck hunting is a very social kind of hunt and that means it calms my spirit. Hunters experience nature in such a way that they become part of it, and when that experience is shared with another human, it forms a bond like no other. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.
The engaged mallard ducks were searching for an impeccable place to raise their ducklings. As they found an island located on Charles River, they began to breed their ducklings and head to the pond located at the park. The theme of this story was likely about what is like being a parent that really cares about its family, whether it is about thinking about the perfect home, or the overall safety of their child. The overall story was enjoyable, as well as the illustrations. The author’s use of alphabetical order for the ducklings’ name is clever, with the names for the ducklings are Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack.
Gatsby hosted these parties, bought her tons of flowers when he reunited with her, changed his whole life just to make enough money for her. “He had waited five years and bought a mansion where he dispensed starlight to casual moths,” (Fitzgerald, Chapter 4). All these parties that he hosted and weren’t meant for the “casual moths” but for Daisy. All because she was the “first nice girl”. Within the poem by Chua, the male fish is exclaiming all the things he would do for the other fish in the other bowl.

Knowing that I am an arts ' enthusiast, she searched for local events pertaining to art and stumbled across tickets to this event on the OMA websites list of attractions. The intended exhibit of the Antiques Vintage and Garden Show was a bit of a snooze and we ended up spending over two hours in the room designated for the Pre-Columbian art works instead, which happened to line up with the time period of the art works studied in this course of Art History.

Over thanksgiving break, my friend and I decided to go visit the California Museum near downtown. After we purchased our entrance, the first thing that caught my eye was the live size bear in front of the museum. This was my first time at that specific museum so it caught my eye more than my friend. Since he has been there already, he showed me around and we went outside to see the giant Constitution Wall. The wall was also fascinating because it was huge and it had phrases from the California Constitution.
On Saturday March 24th I went to the Thien Hau Temple in Chinatown. I went to the temple with my friend Bianca and I met up with Tyler in our class. When we were first given the assignment I knew I wanted to visit a Buddhist temple because I know they have beautiful architecture as I’ve passed by a few in Los Angeles. I don’t know a lot about Buddhism except for the few things I learned about it in middle school. I wanted to visit the Hsi Lai temple in Hacienda Heights, but I couldn’t due to time restraints.
Bootleg Pheasants The South Dakota pheasant, a treasured resource fully protected by a regulated hunting season, provisioned the pantries of law-abiding residents with savory meals. During the fall hunt, shotgun toting men and boys with highly trained bird dogs tramped through the farm fields in pursuit of their prey. Subsequent to a successful hunt, wives and mothers canned the birds in quart jars to preserve the meat. During prohibition, roast pheasant under glass became the ultimate in fine dining in Chicago. Consequently, a robust and lucrative market emerged for fresh pheasant, which didn’t subside during the off-season.

A volunteer experience of mine that comes to mind is one that is probably my most favorite volunteer experience yet. It is one that I get to do at my very own school called DUCK Week (Doing Unselfish Charities for Kids), which is a week long event that I have been a part of since I joined Piedmont Schools as a second grader. What makes this charity unique is that it focuses only on a member or a few members in our very own community, which is why we are able to be so successful with it. It is easier for someone to understand the need to help when it is someone that they may know. This small town in Oklahoma rallies around community members and together we raise funds to help those in need.
