In the pleasant description, I discussed the chirping of birds. I have discussed the sounds of water in the fountain and the rustling of leaves due to cool breeze. This description emphasizes the fact that the weather out there is very pleasant and the people sitting there are relishing the moments. While the leaves rustling was creating an amazing environment, there were also some dead leaves in the fountain decaying over days and months contaminating the environment.
I also skipped some details in order to maintain the mood and tone. In my pleasant description, I skipped the dead and decaying leaves settled in the fountain bottom, while discussing the stream of water rising from the fountain. The reader could have got a negative impact of a good place had I mentioned the garbage details in the positive description.
Similes and metaphors also helped me writing the description. The water from fountain crafting a magical melody depicts the beautiful environment out there. The rustle of leaves portrays the grace of nature. The bright colors of flowers have strong resemblance with juvenile period of human being, which makes the description more pleasant. Similarly, gloominess specifies sadness in the negative description.

A college education is valuable and its quality is of the highest importance to most Americans.

It was a short drive to the hotel, and the scenery was pretty cool, but I was really waiting for arrival time. I couldn't wait to see the hotel, and I had no clue what to expect. I eyes drifted out the window at all the tall trees on the hilly landscape. The trees filled the hill, and there was on sight of the forest floor. Birds of all sizes flew in and out of the forest, keeping a person looking at them and their home forever. But then the landscape began to change.

In ‘Here’s Why Legalizing Marijuana Makes Sense’, Alex Newhouse, a lawyer who resides in the area of Sunnyside, Washington addresses the controversial issue of the legalization of cannabis. The sole purpose of Newhouse’s article is to persuade readers and voters that marijuana should be legalized. Throughout his article, Newhouse focuses on the use of ethos and logos, while also slightly focusing on the use of pathos, to help persuade his audience.

For example, the author uses the explanation of ideas in the article and employs lots of diagrams in each parts of the topic to show the visualization to support his evidence which is very informative because the visuals give lots of information about what the article is about and that to get attention of the audience.
J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye presents a look into the mind of Holden Caulfield, a popular literary icon numerous teenagers have rightfully found themselves relating to at some point. While the familiar emotions of Holden were welcoming for me, his anecdotes and witty remarks proved entertaining as well. The story chronicles Holden’s exploration through New York post-expulsion, with his point of view influenced by his growing alienation with the world. He represents that growing sense of unease at growing up and facing a reality that is not always pretty, and, in his case, a need to save children from having to face that reality. I personally admired the fact that he was not just an angry teenager in the world as stereotypes suggest.
Magnificent, heavenly light filters through the wispy clouds, signifying a new day. The thin clouds slowly drift apart, presenting a beautiful sky beneath. Speaking out to me, the sky seems to know every one of my thoughts, my dreams, my darkest fears. The sky is but a canvas of light, creating a new picture within seconds. Weaving a story through the delicate clouds, the picture grows beyond the expanse of sky. The colors splay before me, painfully beautiful and simple. Pink hues morph into vibrant purples as they blend with the beautiful blues. The glittering stretch of sea shines before my eyes. With every new wave, the light from above whispers promises of riches and sparkling diamonds. The light breeze that kisses the sea sends the twinkling light back into the air above.
The cold crisp winter air bit at her as she trekked across the empty field. A light gust of wind picked up, blowing her wild fiery hair into her face and she pushed it away in slight annoyance. Exhaling a breath, she inched further into her coat and stuffed her hands into her pockets in an attempt to keep warm. Making her way over to a small bench that was dark and slightly rustic, she plopped herself down and instantly fell back into the hard wooden seat with a sigh. Rubbing her glove-covered hands together, she looked towards her vacant surroundings. Lush, vibrant greenery stretched across the vast entirety of the land. The near-naked whimsical-looking trees that were posed disorderly sprouted long thin branches that were yet to blossom into divine colours. Soft yellow light filtered through the grey clouds and casted a warm glow over the field. The faint audible murmur of bristling leaves and the high intermittent chirps of birds pleased her ears. As she watched the blushing withered leaves fall upon the dewy grass, a sense of warm nostalgia settled over her.
Nature is well described and there are even some good detail descriptions. For instance; “….sunbeams dancing here and there through the trees”, which made the best impression on me. Description of the nature was undeniably very important. Mainly because I think that by describing the nature well, the writer wanted to scare kids away from lonely forests.
A ways away from a town that I call home, I found a happy place. I often find myself walking through the park by myself. The beautiful trees, the way the yellow and red leaves crumple under my feet every step I take. When the flowers bloom and how it's the most spectacular sight you could ever imagine seeing, all the different colors that appear. When you breathe in and you get this smell of purity, you feel free and alive. Sometimes I like to sit on the old wooden bench where the bench frame is a little rusted, and I get rid of my thoughts and my eyes search the sky. In the winter the icy breeze makes me shiver, and the cold air I take in, is like sitting in front of an air conditioner and breathing in. Some mornings the sun beams across the sky, which is not quite blue yet, but the sun has almost fully risen. When the wind blows, it grazes over the blades of grass. Some days I just stand and take a deep breath in and I can taste the spring. When summer comes around, and the bees are buzzing, and the hot sun beats on the back of my neck, I lay on the soft grass and listen, to the birds chirping a beautiful song, and the kids playing in the park. The sky is the bluest view in sight.
The alluring sun rays peak through the clouds at Ponder Park as I step on the misty lawn. The sweet faces of those who have arrived, peer into the distance. The park represents a heinous, yet endearing place. Unexpectedly, a numbing breeze rushes throughout my entire being. Although I’m tired, the abrupt glimpse of the landscapes beauty glorifies me.
