MORGANTOWN, W.Va.--In Saturday 's win over Morgan State, Daxter Miles Jr. tallied a career-high 32 points on 12-of-15 shooting. He had three assists, two rebounds and one steal in West Virginia 's 111-48 win over the Bears. Earlier in the week the senior racked up 20 points against American. In both games, Miles looked locked in, especially with his teammate and friend Jevon Carter. "Me and Jevon do whatever our coaches need us to do," Miles said.
Now the only thing Jed had standing in his way was the money to ride the bus to the school and facing his father. He decided that he would be able to pay for the bus fee by selling some of his carvings and it just so happened that his town was opening a craft store for tourists to stop in and get some homemade goods. The day Jed decided to tell his father he was actually okay with him not working in the mines which really surprised Jed. That same day the mine collapsed and the last two men to come out were Jed's father and his friend Tommy's dad. Jed's father had actually gone back into the fallen mine to get miles.
When was the last time you and your significant other fought? In Popular Mechanics by Raymond Carver, the story is about a husband (or boyfriend) who is leaving for an unknown reason, he demands to take the baby with him, but the wife (or girlfriend) will not let him. Undoubtedly, the parent's rage and lack of communication leads to the death of their son. Raymond Carver presents symbolism throughout the short story to indicate something awful is going to happen. The first sentence of the short story is: “Early that day the weather turned and the snow was melting into dirty water.” Snow is a great example of symbolism, because snow is pure or it could be cleanliness.
As my instructor was explaining to us what he was going to have me do on the test, he mentioned that I had already failed my test due to driving in the car alone just before he arrived. I was so confused and nervous that I just looked at him with an expressionless gaze. “I’m just kidding with ya” he stated as he was laughing. Nevertheless, I had no words, all I could do was chuckle to make it seem like it was funny. Within 5 minutes of waiting for another girl to show up, he had decided that we would start it without her.
One of the events in your life I can relate to is when Lucky had got hit by a car in the chapter Jason Highway. I can relate to this chapter because my first dog ever named Lu-Lu got hit by a car like Lucky. It All went like this, when I was walking Lu-Lu down the street in Raritan before I moved to hillsborough. Next, as I was walking Lu-Lu she did not know how the world worked because she was only 1 year old, so as I was saying a garbage truck was roaring by and Lu-Lu got scared and ran into the street and got hit by the huge truck. I was only 6 when I saw this, this was the most scariest thing that happened to me at the time.
The story “A Small, Good Thing” had a theme of human disconnect. In a myriad instances throughout this story human disconnection was shown by the characters. In the beginning of the story when the baker “listened without saying anything when she told him the child would be eight years old next Monday.” Now a normal person would most likely answer in some sort of way like by saying congratulations or something of sorts, but this baker didn’t even acknowledge Ann. Then Scotty was walking with a friend and got hit by a car and the driver just drove away. Again, in a normal world people would expect whoever had hit Scotty to stop and make sure he was alright before they drove away.
Once I find it, my head is tucked between my arms, and my hands and arms stiffen to prepare for the entry into the water. As the water recoils from the sudden intrusion, I use the momentum to launch myself forward. Then, I get a mouthful of water. As I emerged spluttering, I spot the competition way ahead of me, steamrolling through the water. I proceeded to dash through the wall of water as if there was a shark behind me.
Mike suggested we hide the bike in the woods and say that it was stolen, by a group of teenager. Petrified about how upset Ryan would be, I agreed. However, the next day I felt as though the guilt was devouring my mind and I could not withstand it any longer. Eventually I brought the bike back to my house, where I told my dad about what happened. Although my dad was upset that I ruined my friend’s new bike, he helped fix the chain and made me tell Ryan what happened.
It took a lot of blood and a few stitches to enjoy watching hockey with my dad. I was never interested in hockey or sports in general for most of my life. That is, until the Spring Break my brother hit me in the eye with a rock using a jumbo baseball bat. To explain, he had thought it was a good idea to hit rocks into our neighbor’s yard. When I realized he was partaking in this activity it was already too late.
The next story, Hatchet, will tell us about a turning point that had made him motivated. In the story Hatchet, Brian’s plane crashes and he is alone in the wilderness. Then, Brian realizes he has a hatchet on his belt, which his mother gave him. The text tells me he got motivated by the hatchet because it says, “And on his belt, somehow still there the hatchet his mother has gave him.” (Paulson, 7). This tells me he was surprised when he remembered that his mom gave him the hatchet because he is able to use it now that he is in the wilderness by himself, which he never expected.
Heather has no idea how turned the tractor. Heather stated, “I 'm not sure how I turned the tractor, it may have purely been an act of God.” This happened because her dad had her raking hay on a field that had a steep section on one end. Her dad’s tractor already had bad breaks. The brakes had not yet been reinstated. In fact, her father (Paul Sargeant) still pillows snow with that
