"Here's the list."
He handed me a huge list with a bunch of items that included a turkey, a ham, a Christmas tree, and many more.
"I would need some cash first, grandpa.", trying my best to put a smile on my place.
"Here's $300. Don't spend it all in one place."
He left, limping out of my room on his walking cane before letting out another wheezy cough.
How would I put $300 to good use? Wait, I have an idea.
I grabbed my coat and my wallet before making my way to the living room. "Are you sure you don't breakfast?", my grandfather asked before handing me a plate of my favourite pancakes. "No thanks.", I kindly refused before stepping outside of the house with my hands in my pockets.
The air was cold and dry. Although Christmas would come in ten days, there wasn't a slightest indication of eventual snowfall. The streets were barren like an abandoned wasteland. People were filling their front yards with Christmas trees, stringing lights around their houses, and putting a giant snowman on their roof. Refusing to cave into this so-called holiday spirit, I decided to walk faster.
The sky was filled with thick, grey clouds on a chilly, winter afternoon. The trees were stripped cleanly of their leaves. Children were playing street hockey, much to the disdain of the …show more content…
What the fuck was that? Don't you see where you're FUCKING going?!", I shouted at the top of my lungs, not minding the people watching. Someone had just crashed into my overflowing cart, spilling nearly everything onto the ground. I expected it to be an overweight, drunken idiot, but I was soon mistaken.
"I'm terribly sorry about that."
It wasn't an overweight, drunk buffoon as I expected. It was a girl. She was quite pretty, to be honest. She had rich, platinum blonde hair, pale skin, and those eyes!
"I a-.", I was unable to get any words out. Without any delay, she carefully put my items back into my cart. Noticing the green vest she was wearing, she must be working in the store.
"Sorry.", she managed to apologize before the last item had been restored into my cart. She walked away with her arms crossed of sheer embarrassment. What really struck my attention was the amount of coworkers jeering and making fun of her after the accident.
"Check out that fucking klutz!", shouted an overweight hag, who was probably a senior in that store.
"Ha! First mistake in less than 24 hours, huh?", smarked an Indian man in his 20's.
I think she might be the new girl for them to be picking on her like that.
Then, the manager came to confront

The frigid air on this Monday evening foresees snowfall once the sun drops below the horizon. The frost clinging to the turf blends in with the white cleats of the players. Each fan bundled up in sweatshirts, under jackets, under winter coats. A woman next to me saw that I had clearly not come dressed
When a heavy snowstorm sweeps across the North Pole, everyone starts to worry. Will Christmas be canceled, or will Rayne Emily Deer’s dream finally come

It was dark. It was November. And the earth seemed about ready to enter a new ice age. The only indications of a summer long gone were the trees that held fast against the advent of winter and the occasional popsicle clothed in dress meant for better days. And early as it was, the outskirts of seemed as busy as ever. Cars flew down the neon-lit streets of the city

We all have memories different than everyone else.Lights shimmer, “I see one,” the smell of musty wood, blood slowly dripping to My lip,bland baby octopus. something most of us have experiences but all in different ways. These are some of mine.
The last of the snow has slowly melted away, along with everyone’s puffy coats and holiday spirit. Although this morning began quite nippy, any chill disappears as the sun rises higher in the sky. Today, I watch the small town awake and begin it’s normal early-morning bustle.
All I ever wanted was to live happily ever after. Since we arrived, my family made a habit of drifting from city to county as the searched for a perfect place to raise a family in America. However, I wasn’t able to grow up the same way other kids did because, when most kids were playing with their friends, I was busy switching into new homes, fitting into new communities, and trying (and failing) at making new friends. Since our moves were unplanned and fairly frequent, I began to fear loving anyplace, anything, or anyone since I knew anything I would come to love could disappear at any instant. So I avoided making new friends and exploring my community and began to grow up with a very cautious and reserved personality. The only thing I knew that could bring me out of my anti-social shell was Disney! Disney films didn’t just break me out of my shell but, they taught me so many lessons that have been critical in discovering who I am.
Frozen is another Disney movie that is able to maintain its popularity due to its principal genre- a princess movie. The use of music, a transformation undergone by the protagonist, and the presence of love make Frozen just another princess movie. And yet, Disney is able to stretch this genre out over long periods of time due to the changes of personalities, ethnicities, skin colors and other features of the princesses. These changes do make the princesses, though similar in a general sense, stand out from each other. However, not all people find enjoyment in such a genre. In this article, Dan Schindel highlights the weaknesses of the movie Frozen. As a result of these shortcomings, this causes the movie to have an uncertain and unrealistic feel to it. How does Disney pitch
Humans throughout history have always used storytelling to pass on stories and morals to the next generation of society. Although it was always common to use verbal narration to tell these tales, within the last 100 years, remarkable achievements in technology have helped progress storytelling to a new level. As a species humans are now capable of creating images and sounds to display our fables and anecdotes to anyone with the ability to watch. Movies and television have begun to have ability to shape the way a person thinks. Animation is typically the most appropriate genre of movies. Companies such as Disney take their G-Ratings and mold the minds of the young children excited to watch. Typically Disney movies have been filled with undertones that are conservative and non-controversial until recently. Judith Halberstam, a Gender Studies professor at University of Southern California, is the author of an essay that points out elements in the newest movie additions to the Disney family of movies, i.e. Pixar movies, which are progressive. Halberstam calls upon readers to look into animated movies such as Pixar’s and to try and find how the creators of such movies tried to voice controversial opinions in subtle ways. The movie Frozen by Disney is not mentioned in the essay, but very easily fits into Halberstam’s description of new-age animation.
“Introduction: The Struggle for Meaning,” in Bruno Bettelheim’s essay “The Uses of Enchantment,” discusses problems that all children face while growing up and the path to attaining self-worth and morality. Bettelheim’s essay explores how fairy tales are not only enjoyable for a child but also that, “rich personal meaning is gained from fairy stories because they facilitate changes in identification as the child deals with different problems” (Bettelheim, 17). The Frozen adaptation, “Disney Frozen: The Junior Novel,” by Sarah Nathan and Sela Roman is a fairy tale based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen,” and includes features from Bettelheim’s introduction including death, aging, good versus evil, and anxiety. This Frozen adaptation provides children with valuable lessons that can help mature them individually and helps guide them through their personal morality and self-realization.
