Sally called “see you tomorrow; I must be crazy to keep coming back here!”
“She seemed confused and so other worldly. I wasn’t sure if she understood my questions, but she did everything I asked. It was all so strange.” He frowned. “I wasn’t comfortable in pushing her though the system or taking her to a homeless shelter, you know, call it gut instinct, but something was not right.” He looked inquiringly at Adrienne, hoping for some explanation.
How would it feel if you lived in an annex? Living in an annex would be hard because there is little room and not a lot of people can’t live there. You can’t bring everything to the annex because you wouldn’t be able to fit everything in the annex. Some items must be left behind because not all of your stuff is going to fit, but also because you're not going to make a use for it.

I would bring a book because it will keep me busy while we stay quiet in the annex, it will help with reading and writing, and it will help me understand things more.
For a long time, Andy wasn’t able to be a "normal kid." Going to the hospital was where he spent a "1/3 of his life," his mom, Melinda Hernandez, said. They were constantly traveling to the nearest children's hospital which was 4 hours away, until they finally decided to move closer, to be on the waiting list for a new heart. Andy was telling me about his life at the hospital. "Its annoying," smiling as he says it, "there's always people walking in and out of room. Nurses and doctors, always around me."

“Come on big guy!” I said as I ushered Journey upstairs. As he struggled to get up the stairs onto his designated spot, it scared me that he went from being an energetic, hyper dog into this.I didn’t know how to feel, I just felt like a shell, empty,emotionless, lost on an island where I’ve never been, alone. I had not the slightest idea what to do and that gave me a sense of hopelessness. I sat down, next to
Tessa jumped down the hill and shouted to the compass, “Take me to Bayfield… Now!” Tessa knew the device didn’t understand that she was in a hurry, but she knew she didn’t have much time. Thomas’s snowmobile sliced into the heavily packed snow. The hour ride to Bayfield felt eternal Tessa could almost feel a legit weight on her shoulders. Tessa knew she was in Bayfield county not only by the compass, but the colossal amount snow assured Tessa that she was in the right place. Houses were almost unnoticeable underneath all the snow. Trees jolted in every direction from the strong wind and fast snowflakes continuously fell from the pale sky. She decided the first thing to do was to prepare the melting machine she had built to perfection
In the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes, I would describe Calvin's advice to listening being in the form of Monopolizing listening. He likes to purposely interrupting the conversation to draw attention to himself. Continuously drawing attention toward you in a conversation is one form of monopolizing a conversation. Unfortunately, the listener may miss important information from the conversation due to not being involved in the conversation. It is important to be mindful of others when listening. If Calvin would listen to the speaker and think about what the speaker has to say, he would be able to process the information to be able to make comments, ask questions and remember things that maybe of important from the conversation. Calvin becomes an
