“How, if possible, can I pass Charybdis or fight of Scylla when she raids my crew?” (930). Like Odysseus, I manifested a determination when it came to achieving a new PR in cross country. I worked harder in practice, started eating healthier, and fought against the pain and urge to walk at the following meet. My determination paid off because I knocked off around two minutes off of my previous PR. Along with achieving a new PR, I demonstrated determination when I wanted to start a snowmobiling youth program in the state of Iowa.

Snowball fights, building a snowman, and staying inside drinking hot cocoa happen
This action shows selflessness very well because Fred could have easily stayed behind and had someone else do the job instead, but instead he immediately volunteers to go into a storm that he could get lost and die in within minutes of exposure. In fact, Fred actually withstood the storm longer than he had to. Once he found the bridge he tried to make sure he would remember the way when he would guide the rest of children to safety, “he had walked back and forth between the bridge not once but twice” (Laskin 161). He could have just gone back forth

Every time I saw on we saw one my eyes would light up and I would run toward it, but then I would change my mind and hide behind my mom’s leg. My parent’s started to realize my strange addiction to dogs, and they got me a shirt with a dog on it. This may not seem important to my story, but this shirt was very influential. I loved it so much, I wore it everywhere even if it was dirty. If it was even possible,
Now, before I answer these seat clenching questions I want all you soon-to-be dog owners (or multiple dog owners) to do me a HUGE favour. First, take a deep breath. Now, put your breed stereotypes on the shelf, put your rescue dog horror stories under the stairs and wrap your sunny puppy ideals back up in the glittery gift paper they came in.
