She learned that humans are kind and helpful when needed, and that if she can climb up and down a mountain with a prosthetic leg she can do anything, and lastly she learns that you can buy anything for yourself, if you have the money. Ahmedi learned other things about herself and others on her journey, too. She probably learned that if you believe in something you can do it. She probably learned about her mother that her asthma gets worse when there is worry and anxiety in the atmosphere. Ahmedi ,possibly, is a strong independent woman and is very and experienced.
They opted not to install the improved fuel efficiencies. This resulted in using over 50,000 more gallons of fuel to accomplish the same job. I would argue application of that regulation caused more environmental damage from increased fuel consumption and a 2 year cleanup operation that could have been accomplished in 1
She sacrifice herself in order to bring the medicine that her grandson needed. “Putting her right foot out, she mounted the log and shut her eyes. Lifting her skirt, leveling her cane fiercely before her, like a festival figure in some parade, she began to march across. Then she opened her eyes and she was safe on the other side. "I wasn't as old as I thought," she said” (Page 289).
I don’t mind at all, but I’ve warned you haha. That’s so great. I love traveling, but my family isn’t really the traveling type (probably because we’re so big and it’s expensive). So I normally travel alone or with my church too. I’ve been on four mission trips so far, but this will be the first year I won’t be going.
She was gifted with whatever she wants in return. Or, at least, I think I did; Lia is now 14 and constantly asks me to go out with her friends. As a response, I would instantly say no because of her studies. In her free time, I would make her do chores around the house or run some errands. Lia would always perform these easy tasks, but now she seems to ignore me.
Gabriella, the main character, is the protagonist, she is a round, dynamic character as the reader knows quite a bit about her, like that she is a 10th grade biology teacher, who is active and has a passion for hiking, she is dynamic because at the start of the story she still thinks that her and Liam have a great relationship, but by the end of the short story she recognizes that Liam is not the right person for her. It is clear that she is the protagonist because of the omniscient point of view the author provides, throughout the story there is consistent narration but the reader perceives the thoughts and feelings of only Gabriella. “Only three weeks since the accident, and it seems as if shes been waiting forever”(Helgason, 71), this quote says “she” has been waiting forever rather than referring to time in general, the author focuses on how Gabriella feels. The antagonist in this story is Lian, well why is Gabriella 's partner the antagonist? It is simple he opposes Gabriella, Gabriella wants to lease a home for the two of them but Liam opposes what she wants by planning out a 3 month trip with his peer, Clive.
Even though last night was rough I was sad when I realized that today would be my last day here. I soon realized that I wouldn't have any time to go biking, boating, or hunting but the thought of coming back one day took that grief away. I wanted to make my last day memorable so I said goodbye to Bonnie, Tom, and Charlie and I was off. While starting my hike I realized how lucky I was to be one of only ~11,000 people that visit every year. I decided that after my hike I would end my expedition by going to Silver Salmon creek in hopes of seeing some Bristol bay salmon.
I decided that I was going to run cross country in the fall, something I never even considered before. The first week of practise, I anticipated dreading going on the long runs and suffering through difficult workouts. Instead, what found was the most supportive group of people in my school and even more surprising I discovered my love of running. Now in my senior year of high school, I have become a dedicated runner who finds enjoyment in the pain of pushing yourself to the limit. Cross Country has taught me many lessons such as the importance of commitment and determination, however the lesson that stands out is the importance of being open to new opportunities and overcoming obstacles.
While many consider the 50-mile backpacking trek at the Boy Scout High Adventure Philmont Ranch 10,000 feet above sea level an already excruciating journey, my experience with the trek revealed the perfect metaphor: Life is just one big blister. Before this trip, I dedicated my life towards improving the mind rather than the body, embracing my talents in mathematics and science and envisioning myself as a teacher of academia rather than an athlete. With this background and as the youngest person in the expedition, my crewmembers often expressed their concerns: “Did you lace your boots properly? Do you have enough food? Are you warm enough?” Unfortunately, despite numerous preparatory hikes, their worries held true as I developed a blister on my left foot within the first day.
Making comparisons makes the situations she is in easier to relate to and understand. “I also tried one of those semi-backpack purses, but I bought it just when it was going out of fashion, and in any case, I put so much into it that I looked like a Sherpa” (Nora Ephron: I Hate My Purse | Reader's Digest). In this simile she is comparing the ‘semi-backpack purse’ to looking like a Sherpa, which is tribe in Nepal that provides courteous mountain guides to outsiders. They keep a lot in their backpacks whilst guiding people on the mountain which shows you just what her bag might have looked like. Ephron is able to share the lessons she has learned in her life through narratives and figurative language.
