Geneva on the Lake I went to Geneva on the Lake and had the most lively time there. First we went to the beach and rummaged through the sand with sifters to find beach glass which was so much fun. We then went to this rundown building with old antiques and knick knacks, and some of the things were shuddersome and freighting. After we went through some more buildings we went to get some food which was really appetizing. Lastly it was time to leave which was hard because I had so much fun there.
The movie Dead Poets Society is about a teacher who comes to an academy school to teach a english class. His name is John Keating and he is one of the main characters in the movie. Mr Keating was an alumni of the school he is now teaching at. There were many different lessons that the movie taught. The first lesson is to Suck the marrows of life. The second lesson is to do your own things and be independent. The third lesson is to look at life from different angles. The purpose of this movie was to show people better ways and different perspectives on life.
In the beginning of Dead Poets Society, Mr. Keating takes the boys out into the hallway to show them pictures of past students and encourages them to “make their lives extraordinary” and “seize the day- carpe diem”. This is only the beginning of his unorthodox but revolutionary teaching style that ostracizes him from the other teachers at Welton and eventually leads to his expulsion. I believe the lesson he was trying to teach the boys was important, and I believe that Charlie Dalton personified the lesson he was trying to teach.

Two Rivers is a campground not too far from Sartell, I have been there countless times throughout my childhood. It is called two Rivers because the Mississippi River and the Platte River connect at a bay that surrounds the entire campground. The Platte River is much smaller than the Mississippi, which makes it popular to tub on, like a giant lazy river at a water park. Tubing on the River is one of the most popular activities, with that you can also canoe and kayak. Most years the water in low and slow with some rapids, but this year it was particularly fast.

Three characters that fall on complete opposite ends of the spectrum with respect to overall character progression include: Todd Anderson, Charles Dalton, and Knox Overstreet.
