Holden was failing everything except English and showed that Holden only liked literature and how he does not care if he passes or fails any classes. Liking one subject is a good thing, but failing the rest is very bad. In the song by Avenged Sevenfold, you could tell they were feeling lost and confused in life because they say, “This ride that takes me
Summer break is the best because there is no school, you can go on vacation, and you can spend time with your friends and family. The first reason summer break is the best because there is no school.

They reacted to my self-pity with gracious apologies and kind words. Another one joined the conversation in asking what sport I was training for. Once I told them my sport was beach volleyball, the burly men went on to rave about how much fun that must be and how great it must feel for the sand to seep between my toes, and how I get to be in the shining sun all day. Again, I retorted by complaining about the sun, the hot sand, my blistered feet and sprained ankle. They listened and showed great empathy as I protested their positivity and wallowed in my own self pity.
Into the Wild, written by Jon Kraukauer and lived by Chris McCandless, is a novel in the eyes of a young man who ventures out to find a happiness of his own.

There’s a difference between being ignorant and being intelligent, Chris was staying put on that line.
Axis IV: in this axis, my educational and occupational problems kicked in. I started to care less about my homework, being on time to school. Most of the time I would just go straight to the ocean until it’s about 10:00 pm. I liked to be alone with my thoughts. I enjoyed the beach waves and it was relaxing.
Away from all the madness, traffic, busy-ran lives, and locals who run around like a chicken with their head chopped off, a breathtaking sense of tranquility unwinds me. My mind and my body are at rest when I do not constantly need to think about the pressure of college apps, chemistry class, and expectations that are beyond my capability. In this very moment, standing on my hiding place, all that I know is the sky is blue, the sun is out, and the waves in front of me have a sound almost as if to sooth a baby to
Everyone was savoring their perfect summer day; swimming in refreshing pools or laying on a lawn chair letting the rays blanket their skin. But here I was, stuck in this futile office that reeked of latex and Lysol. Neglecting to listen to the receptionist and my mom engaging in small talk, I notice an archaic T.V showing a documentary of sea life darting in-between vibrant pieces of coral; the only viewers were the hard, plastic, waiting
In “Tableau”, the writer sets up a contrast between the judgemental, non-accepting society and the prideful boys. “ The golden splendor of the day/ The stable pride by night.” (Cullen, 819, 3-4). These lines show that the boys are positive and proud of this new path they are taking.

Clean forgot I told him to jump in. Well, I aint done nothing like that no more” (Steinbeck 44). Even George is remorseful for what he has done in the past he still continues to demean Lennie. Which (due to his childlike demeanor) Lennie does not notice when he is being made fun
