After exploring the Black Hills, I fell in love with the open land. The suburbs of Minneapolis are inferior to the Black Hills in every way. The night sky was, by far, the most stunning difference that I noticed. I sat outside every night by the bonfire talking to the group while stargazing because I could see twice as many stars as I could back home. Due to the fact that I am no stranger to enjoying the outdoors, I felt right at home during the two week vacation.
With her, it didn’t matter what people said about us. Strength allowed us to overcome the bullying, but without her, I can’t hold myself up. All of their nasty actions are put upon myself alone. I am lost. I am drowning and I cannot find the surface.
But the most intricate and intoxicating thing about the mountain was its appearance in the sky. It appeared as if the only purpose of the sun was to cast its glow on the enormous heap of Earth. The clouds parted at the peak of the mountain and the rays of the sun cast a warm glow on all the mountains hills, trees, and snow. An enormous grin spread across my face as we slowly came into view of the station at the peak of the mountain and began to decelerate. I stepped out of the gondola, grabbed my snowboard, and made my way towards the
Huck and Alex leave society behind when they apprehend that nature is a sanctuary. “The river looked miles and miles across. The moon was so bright I could a counted the drift logs that went a slipping along” (Twain 36). In this quote, nature provides Huck with a path to escape his father and society which he gladly accepts. Nature provides for Alex also in that it provided him with the magic bus which he lived in.
She turned the car real hard and spun off the rode into some shrubs, so that she would lose their followers. The driver introduced herself as Kit Snicket. We have an important brunch to go to, to discuss the matters of a imposter. Kit layed out a blanket on the ground and placed a feast out for them to eat. Kit was a pregnant woman who was very kind because she was a volunteer.
There was a twinkle in his eye as he offered his wings and we flew away. We took off into the endless night sky and the castle behind us waved goodbye. As we soared over the snow covered mountains and the forest down below I thought, never hesitate to dry a dragon’s tears. That day we both learned a lesson about boldness in fear, and we let it carry us up above the clouds and into the world beyond. THE
She is wrapped in swaddling clothes and sent down The River, until she starts drowning and can’t swim back up. She is stuck down at the bottom of The River until Owen finds her. After this one incident, her afterlife goes by in a flash. She truly learned that Elsewhere isn’t as bad and isn’t as horrible as she had once thought it was. Here, she was happy and reacted to her problems in a bright manner.
Falling Into a Swamp One bright and sunny day I had to go to school in first grade like normal and I couldn't wait to go home and play in the snow. The day went by in a flash, when school was over my dad picked me up and I told him about school and went home when we got home I asked my dad if I could play outside but he told me to put on my pink puffy jacket . My dog Norton was outside with me and my dad went inside and went on his computer in the backroom. I didn't know how to swim. I thought that it would be a good idea to walk around the little edge of my 8 foot pool.
It will become ordinary.” (atwood). After the Handmaid’s were fully trained by the aunts, each of them was sent to a commander’s house, and became his mistress and “instrument of pleasure”. Despite of the dangerousness of the system, rebellious acts still existed though it was limited. Offred’s aim was to stay alive in the system, yet she managed to resist the system in many ways, but her resistance did not threaten the system, “her small resistances were ineffective or counter-productive”. one of her very simple rebellious acts, was when she stole butter from the dining table to use it as hand lotion because cosmetics were not allowed anymore.” there’s a pat of butter on the side of the plate.
I was fourteen years old and my family had moved to Utah a few years prior to this Boy Scouts survival scenario. My Scout leader had just informed us that we would be going on the annual “snow camp outing”. I had never been camping in the snow before and was extremely excited. Not only was I going to get to hike in the snowy Rocky Mountains I was also going to have to build a snow shelter and sleep in it, no tents allowed! Unfortunately I procrastinated with my preparation and did not start packing until the day of the trip.
I watched with immense curious attention as the swirling leaves slowly turned into swirling bright tiny stars. They were miracles! I ran to them and swatted and tried to catch one, at least one in the brisk air of autumn. But, when I reached out for one they all slipped away from our universe into an infinite abyss of a forever black night and tiny specks of
I was the oldest of three kids, including myself, and very independent, which required me to be independent. Chicago turned into my playground. My brother and sister attended day camp that I volunteered at, while my parents worked during the day. While my siblings were at day camp I took the train and bus wherever I needed to go. The Chicago transit authority has this amazing green laminated glass on their older train cars that I always stared out of going from place to place.
Chapter 9: “I wanted to go and look at a place right about the middle of the island that I 'd found when I was exploring; so we started and soon got to it, because the island was only three miles long and a quarter of a mile wide. Jim, the slave, and Huck climb a big hill and hide their equipment in the cavern. While they were already there, they decided to sit and eat as well. Huck is still happy even though it is raining hard outside. Most days, the two travel during the night, to not risk getting caught.
Beaching myself, I crawl about three feet before throwing up the water in my lungs. After my lungs were purged of any unnecessary liquids I stood, leaning on my good foot, then looking at my damaged arm. The pain hits me and I collapse and throw up again. Feeling faint I do my best to pull myself together before I pass out. Standing once again and trying to look at the positives, I realize I am not dead, and the pain in my arm may give
Reacting quickly, I blew my whistle loudly to alert the other guards nearby that I had to make a rescue. Jumping into the water with my tube in front of me, I hurriedly swam over to the girl handing her the buoy. She grabbed on tightly and began to gasp for air. It took a few minutes, but once I brought her to safety, and even though I knew she was grateful, she quickly jumped out of the pool and ran away, almost as if nothing had happened. As I went back to my position, full of adrenaline, I reflected on how odd it was to save a life when neither she nor her parents gave the event, nor me, a second thought.
