When he was two he learned how to roll over, and in the story “The doctor said that with his weak heart this strain would probably kill him, but it didn’t.” Then he eventually learned to crawl backwards, and that was his mode of transportation unless he was being carried or pulled around in his cart. Doodle began to talk soon after and, as described in the book, would not stop talking. Then one day Brother, the narrator, decided to teach him how to walk. And Doodle did learn how to walk, and also skip and run. Doodle was also a skilled at lying which is basically storytelling.
"They usually last a couple of hours and can consist of stunt practice, cheer practice, or competition practice, depending on what you have coming up," (www.varsity.com). Before the first football game, practice usually consist of practicing cheers and sideline chants. You may also practice stunting. If a pep rally is coming up, then practices will consist of going over and finalizing your dance and routine that you will be performing. If you are on a competitive team for you school and a competition is coming up your coach or advisor may have you work on tumbling, stunting, and your routine.
Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting. The worse thing the pressure brought to Hughes was his loss of faith. He no longer could believe in Jesus, and he lost that faith while making other people happy that he had been “saved.” Orwell doesn't buy what society believes about beggars. Beggars have to go through a lot on the streets, to still be detested by society. Society doesn't care what beggars have to go through, they only care about who has a lot of money.
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.
One of the main ways that the characters cope with loss (death in particular.) is having rituals to respect the ones that they lost. After the loss of the Harrys mother the rest of the family goes to the cemetery on “the first Sunday of every month" and visit her grave. Harry and Keith’s “dad pulls weeds and sweeps cleans the marble". Another example of this would be how harry and "the ghost of the swamp" (who is later discovered as Johnny Barlow) visit Linda’s cross in the pierce swamp and leave small tokens such as a locket and "silver ring with sapphire glass" harry likes to "tend the daises" around Linda’s cross .
Chapter Two: CJ An educational trip to the Globe Theater over spring break. I chuckled just at the thought of the whole ordeal, this man cannot be serious. But as many times before I was proven wrong and he was serious and handing out papers about the trip. I wasn’t worried though. There was no way my parents would make me go on this trip.
In seventh grade I had my first “boyfriend”; it was the typical middle school relationship. I remember telling my parents at the time that it was not a big deal; I said something along the lines of “it’s middle school, this doesn’t mean anything”. We lasted almost a year and when we broke up it was like nothing happened expect it was a little odd seeing him with other females, but we were still friends for some time. I noticed that I was one of the few girls at that age who weren’t who knew that relationships then do not mean much. When it came to boys I had an “eh” attitude, while many girls got attached and when they broke up they were a little too sad.
Suddenly i felt beautiful. The freshmans are only allowed to go to the winter formal but it seemed okay. I’ve been dreading this night for weeks. Mostly because the guy who had asked me was, well you know,
I had also sprained my wrist, when I tried to catch myself from hitting the ground, and I had road rash. It was only two days after the accident that my family and I had to fly out to Las Vegas to go for vacation. The timing of all of this happening wasn’t the best. We could not put a cast on because of the flight coming up and the trip we had, the doctor said It would have been very uncomfortable having the cast on the flight with a newly broken bone. So, instead I just wore a boot, which was good enough because it had the support I needed.
The Mighty Trojan Marching Band: Garner’s Unsung Talent Written By: Lauryn Gibbs The Mighty Trojan Marching Band marches to a cadence played by the drumline to Friday night football games.

She told me to tell his mother not to cry loudly; that may disturb the rounds. On those days, we just obeyed them blindly, since that was the tradition. I tried to comfort the mother; we wept together silently. That mottled body, pale, half-way closed eyes, and bluish lips haunted me for several nights. I felt anger to God and started bargaining with God, and asked why do we have to die?
A memorial day for me was one Friday night at a dance at Flandreau Indian Boarding School in South Dakota. I went to this Boarding School, not knowing what to expect. My father had gone to this same Boarding School many years before I had. He graduated from there and I was hoping to do the same. Me and my very good friend of mine, we had the crazy idea to go to the school together to escape the realities of our home town.
