A few blocks down, there is a young man lying on his bed, contemplating weather his parents would notice him missing. Then there is an empty house, filled with only memories of a family torn apart by hate. Each household has different scars but the same cover up story. The wife telling her neighbors that she tripped and fell; and the child laughing with their friend, talking about how great life is. Even the empty house tells the future buyers that it is a place to raise a family.
I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.
After my mom forced me to get my Eagle (the highest rank in scouting) I thought I was ready to retire the sash, but my mom had one more trick up her sleeve… I learned I was going to philmont about a month before school ended. For those who don't know, philmont is a “high adventure” boy scout camp, and when you go there you put all of your belongings on your back and hike a route that your crew created, occasionally stopping at various outposts. At first I was very reluctant to go, but then after talking to my friends and discussing how fun it could be I decided what the heck. Me and my 6 man crew, 10 if you count the parents, planned our hike and then went
Soon, I will start my new life in Oregon. There, I said it. On Monday, my entire world, my family, will be leaving our home to find out what is really in the magical place called Oregon. Caroline, my wife, is skeptical of the 2000 mile journey. She doesn 't know if we should be risking it at all.
The thing is that, I was talking to my brother-in-law. When I opened my eyes, no one was actually there. This was in between sleep, dream and waking up…weird. So, the following day, I still had the severe headache. My mother had decided to take me to the doctor.
A quote in book IX was, “Nohbdy’s my meat, then, after i eat his friends. Others come first. There's a noble gift now.”. (400) This quote creates an effect which is building up the tension between Polyphemos and Odysseus. This is building up tension because he saying that Odysseus is his food then the whole sentence is saying that he would eat Odysseus last as a gift.
We would look down as though we didn't see anything. We stood there in that line at attention, in our minds, we prayed for the “parade rest and dismissed” that would eventually come. I can remember when I was about 10 years old being huddled under the covers on my bed listening to my father throwing my mother around the living room. The dread would creep in like an icy
She often asked her parents if one of them has been adopted. After saying goodnight to their parents, they went to bed. While they were sleeping in their enormous rooms, something creepy happened: they conjure in a nasty and stinky street; Lucy said, “Where..where are we?” “How am I suppose to know?” Jimmy responded. For Jimmy the situation was urgent. The air was toxic.
When Cather had to move to Nebraska, she hated it for the first year or so. This shows Naturalism because she sulked over the fact that she had to move. Likewise, in the story, Alexandra had gone through some tough times. Cather wrote, “She began to wonder whether she would not do better to finish her life alone. What was left of life seemed unimportant.” In a Naturalistic way, Alexandra has put that way of thinking onto herself.
”Everyone here is still very tense. Pim has nearly reached boiling point; Mrs Van D is lying in bed with a cold, grumbling; Mr Van D is growing pale without his cigarettes; Dussel, who 's having to give up many of his comforts, is carping at everyone; We seem to have run out of luck lately. The toilet 's leaking, and the tap 's stuck.” As we can see the register is the one that everyone would use to describe a normal family situation, but the content is what gives us the idea of how they used to face their situation during the oppression. And nothing could be more useful than a direct “live” deposition of what was going on in people’s mind, and this would definitely take the “Interpretation error” off
