“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal” -Steve Maraboli. In a Gathering of Days, Cathrine had to choose whether or not she was going to show compassion to a slave. Everyone Agrees Cathrine did give the blanket to the slave. But some believe she should have, and some think she should not have. Cathrine should have left the blanket for the slave for three main reasons, The slave needed help, He was trying to escape, and she could help someone in need.
Today is Thursday June 18, and thankfully I am feeling better after a whole week of sickness. Yesterday was a slow day I woke up late and did chores which I felt was a workout because by the time I was done I sweating like crazy. I felt that since my body was sick, my exertions felt twice as weak. Afterwards I just wanted to lay down in my bed and never get up but I decided since I was already sweaty I'd do more. So I got up and did some stretching, yo-ga, and some sit ups. Those I did to make-up a little for what I was missing.
This is my 739th day on the island. My hair is past my neck and I have almost lost all hope of ever leaving here. I miss my family and am loosing my emotions. All that matters is surviving. If we do ever get rescued which I doubt, I know I will never be anything like the boy I used to be. My only freedom here is talking to Piggy. Even if I didn’t know him before the crash, I know I have made a brother I would be the biggest train wreck ever if I lost him. About 20 days ago Jack left the group and everyday there are less and less boys. But I’ll always have Piggy. I’m glad Jack isn’t doing anything bad. Day 740. We are doing a pretty good job of keeping it civil. Jack invited us to a barbecue today. . . it would be nice to eat meat
In life, humanity has evolved over time. Present day, humans sit in these massive countries with pleasant houses and have less hassle opposed to many generations ago. Over time, humanity has convicted the most beautiful and the worst events in history. One of the worst- the Palmer Raids, how it signified to be the worst assault on civil liberties in United States History. There will be coverage on Palmer’s prediction for May Day, his insufficient evidence, and the raids disregarding civil liberties. The Palmer raids was a brutal act that came to mass deport and arrest any suspected communists.
My first visit to Daybreak consisted mostly of learning about the facility and helping the girls work on their team building projects. When we first arrived, I begin to realize how serious the situation these girls are in is. I was told to put a lock on my phone and to not share too much information about myself. At first I was extremely nervous, but once we entered the common room with all the girls I started to feel more comfortable. These girls have been through more then I could ever imagine. I have been sheltered from drug abuse for most of my life and I never could have thought that girls so young could get caught up in hard drugs such as crack and heroin.
July 4, 1776 marked a very special day. A day that holds the future for many. The day that reminds us year after year up to this day and beyond that we shall never forget. How special you may ask? July 4th is known as the 4th of July. We celebrate this day with fireworks, parades, cookouts, camping, vacations, and more. What are we celebrating? We are celebrating the day America became free. The day our founding fathers adopted the Declaration of Independence. The day that 13 colonies claimed their independence from Great Britain.
I love to tell stories about my childhood. Looking back now, through all of my life’s experiences, it almost feels like I was living in a fairy tale. It brings both joy and sadness to my heart when I share these memories with my daughter. The joy comes from remembering how things were back then and how those things impacted my life today. The sadness comes from knowing that she will never get to experience those things, therefore, she will only get to live them through me. Even now as a young woman, she will say to me from time to time, “mom, tell me a story about the Good Ole Days”!
I never will understand this day to the fair and what all happened, I don’t think anyone will. I just know that one animal ruined a month for me. It was the week right before fair, and all I did was walk my cow. It was the first time ever showing a cow, my brother convinced me that it would be a fun learning experience. That didn’t happen at all for me when I walked into that show ring with a 1,100 pound steer. I was up at 4:00 a.m. the morning of the show, and I was ready to go wash my cows and get them ready for the show.
Overall, I think this activity was pretty difficult for me because I would forget some days to write down the food I consumed for the day so sometimes I would have to ask my family or friends what I had eaten for the day. The reason I believe that happened was because some days are busy for me because of my daily routine. Basically my day starts by me getting ready for school, I take a shower and dressed, put my stuff in my backpack. Then I go to the kitchen drink a green juice my mom makes for me in the morning and I head out to my first bus location. I sometimes take different routes depending on the time the bus gets there, so at times I end up taking three buses or two buses to get to class. Then as I arrive I have my morning classes and I work at CSUN in the afternoon to the night. I work in the Sierra center in the marketplace. I am a cook for the Marketplace, however I work in all stations so sometimes I am making burritos, other times at pasta and sometimes making sandwiches.So I am all over the place. Because of that I end up really tired and end up taking a uber home. As soon as I get home I fall asleep so my days are always compacted.
Hey guys. Sooo I just want to clarify some things before you guys get here. When we go to the day club the drinks there are going to be expensive as fuck. Almost everywhere in Vegas that serves alcohol is going to be expensive but thankfully I know how to avoid us spending a crazy amount of money on alcohol (besides the day club). Now going to the day club there will be a cover fee for Britt and for you guys. I know people who work at the day clubs and they said that they might be able to give you guys a discount but the guys cover fee will obviously be a little more expensive. And I'm almost certain that we won't have to pay a cover fee for when we go to the night club. Also, the air in my truck doesn't work and it's hot as shit outside so
After the 4 days, I saw that if I ate a good breakfast and lunch nothing changed. I was still happy and my energy was high the rest of the day. But on Sunday, I didn’t eat a lot and I was using a lot of my energy over an extended period amount of time, my energy level dropped very quickly.
The single best day I had has a child was when my mom said that she had a surprise in mind for vacation. She didn’t say what it was but said that my brother and I would love it we took a long drive to St. Louis, Missouri to visit the Gateway Arch. This was an unexpected surprise visiting a museum it was a great time waster but my mom said that this wasn’t the surprise. The next day we went to the big surprise which was Six Flags. The first thing that we did there was visit the water park which had a multiple attractions that you had to at least try all of them. Then we went to the Main Park which had of kinds of rides my favorites being the Batman ride and superman ride that they had. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and the single best
It was a normal Wednesday afternoon, english class had just ended and I had only a little homework. I met my friends like normal during break, but when I was walking to my fourth period spanish class I started getting a splitting headache, as if something was trying to push through my skull. I was trying to pay attention, but I still had the headache going on, refusing to relieve me of my pain.
We forced ourselves to get a very early start this morning so we could beat the crowds in the remaining two towns, Vernazza and Monterosso. We arrived in numero quattro, Vernazza, just as all the locals and shop keepers were getting ready for the day, and we enjoyed having the little town to ourselves. Or at least it felt that way after the crowds we experienced the day before. Then, it was on to numero cinque, Monterosso! According to Rick Steves, it is "Cinque Terre's only resort town." Both Bob and I were not expecting to like it as much as the other towns from this description. However, along with Corniglia, it ended up being one of our favorites. Since it is a little larger than the other
The 4th of July is all about colorful fireworks, flavorful popsicles, and fun times. Although there are some standard 4th of July activities that people love to do - think fireworks in the backyard and grilled hamburgers - those aren’t the only options. If you’re looking for unique and fun activities for your celebration this year, you might just love these four ideas!
