In the book Freak The Mighty by Rodman Philbrick I believe the theme is that friendship is unlimited my your physical differences. Max, a very big eighth grader and our narrating main character, is at the Fourth of July fireworks with his new best friend Freak, who according to Max hasn't grown since preschool. Freak is unable to see anything. Max recalls, “I just sort of reach down without thinking and pick up Freak and set him on my shoulders” (Philbric, 32). Max and Freak are different but Max is still there for Freak.
One summer day, out of the blue, my dad decided to take us to South Padre Island. Summer vacation is always a stressful time for me. I’ve always wanted to experience something entertaining, but I never seem to enjoy trips with my family. We complain a lot and don’t get so well along. Everyone I know has really interesting vacation stories in which their families enjoyed awesome adventures and created unforgettable memories.
Every night before I go to sleep, I must watch at least one episode from “Family Guy”. It comes on at night because it’s not meant for children under the age of seventeen (it’s called adult swim). I must say this show has all my attention, every time it comes on I find myself singing along with the opening credits (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhAN-L0EzCI) because I find the song very catchy. Like most television programs, “Family Guy” has a theme song. It was created by Walter Murphy, this song opens almost every episode except for some episodes such as Fast Times at Buddy Cianci Jr. High, PTV, Family Goy, Brian Griffin's House of Payne, And Then There Were Fewer, And I'm Joyce Kinney, Livin' on a Prayer, Space Cadet, Valentine's Day in
Cobain tried many times to create his own band, only to fail each time. Later on, Kurt meets someone who happened to like the same types of music and was able to create a band with bassist, Krist Novoselic (Gould, 2018). Becoming more and more popular from performing at college parties, Cobain dropped out of high school and later got kicked out of his mother’s house. This resulted in, being homeless for quite some time and going in and out of friends houses and under bridges (Gould, 2018). Performing at the Evergreen State College, Nirvana progressively started to get bigger gigs (Gulla, 2018).
The light has been driving Gatsby for five years to obtain enough money so he will finally be able to marry her. 2. How does Nick describe himself at the beginning of the novel? Nick describes himself as someone who does not pass judgment on people. He is from a well of family from the midwest.
You would think that she is rich because for every good deed you do you would get $5, even if you were cleaning your room without being asked you would get $10. (But we all know the reason you really cleaned your room; there probably something moving on your sock or something) Next of course is Mr. Edward’s, the sport freak. Let’s put it this way, if you were watching a sport game of any kind he would know everything that happened and how the winning team won. He is like ESPN crazy. Also there is the oldest of the three brothers Evan Edwards, no one really hears from him much now that he is married and has two kids, no story there besides he has a great life and everyone is jealous of his love life.
Throughout Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby most if not all characters fall victim to the complications and consequences of love. Throughout a significant portion of the book Nick is caught up in Gatsby’s five year long plan to reunite himself with Daisy all while he is struggling with his own conflicts of attempting to stay true to himself as “one of the few honest people that I have ever known.” (Fitzgerald 64) Fitzgerald portrays love as something you make sacrifices for, do unreasonable things for, and go to the extremes to pursue, examples of all of these can be noted throughout the story. Gatsby builds his fortune over a span of five years and spends a massive amount of money constantly in order to get Daisy to fall in love with him. Gatsby expended the best and last years of his life working to impress a woman that already had her whole life set and likely forgot about him. Gatsby sacrificed his time, money, and ultimately his life for Daisy, that is love.
I decided to interview one of my friend’s older brother, Minh. My friend and I have been friends throughout high school, and I decided to interview her older brother because I do not know him very well and wanted to learn about Minh’s passion of breakdancing. I was particularly interested in learning about breakdancing from Minh because it is the foundation of hip hop dancing, which is one of my hobbies. The interview took place on Saturday October 17, 2015 at 11 pm through a Skype video session. I called Minh on Skype from my dorm room on campus, and he was sitting in his room with a casual, red t-shirt.
When my alarm clock sounded at five o 'clock in the morning on the first day of summer, I groaned as my fingertips searched for the snooze button and pulled the covers over my head. I dreaded this moment for weeks, not only because it meant waking up before the sun but also because it meant I would be taking care of seventy-plus exuberant kids for the rest of summer. Working with kids didn’t intimidate me, I adored kids and I had been a caretaker for kids since the young age of three when my twin brothers were born. However, I was fazed by the thought of my entire summer being chaos and mayhem. I could already feel the headaches, the stress and the 'why did I get myself into this ' feelings.
I got 6th place in the tournament and was not happy but I gained experience and never gave up. My father and I drove back to Dallas and were greeted by the rest of my family who were all over the country and some in different countries. My Spring Break was fun because I got to spend five days with my dad and we did what we both love to do. I was upset that I did not win but you can’t always win and you have to learn how to lose and be a good loser. Spring Break 2018 was one for the record
