It was the fourth grade. I always heard rumors and gossip about a certain teacher. This year, kids said to take any teacher except Mrs. Williams, the oral project teacher.

Personal Narrative Essay

Higher and higher we rose up this seemingly endless track of the “SheiKra” with the car making a squeaking and clanking noise as we ascend up the glaring red track, until we reached the top of the steel giant. With the sun shining in my eyes, I didn’t know how high we were until the coaster reached the top of the peak and I saw everything in a ten mile perimeter. My jaw dropped to see how high we were. The car made a slow eerie right turn and approached the first drop of the roller coaster. The drop is a heart-pounding dive that takes you ninety degrees straight down two hundred feet on red steel track. It is a fall of death for some but a thrill of a life time that formed a special memory for my brother, sister and me.

Chocolaty Goodness – Creative Writing

It’s about 11:30pm. I am always tired but I have insomnia, so I have at least three hours before my eyes start getting heavy. My daughter, Ava, just went to bed. It’s Friday so I let her stay up to watch “Elmo’s Adventure to Grouchland” for the thirteenth time today. Now, it’s “me time.” The only problem is that I am bored. There is nothing on TV, I don’t feel like studying, my computer is broken, and the only food in the kitchen is baby food and milk.

Have you experienced a moment of epiphany?

Epiphany, is much alike in life to an “Instant of reality” (Denzin, 1994). Though it seems words fall short to describe an epiphany. There are times, when passion and deep thinking is increasing in you when you are not really aware of it and one day you are through with the situation. All the confusion gets cleared and you are on the top, ruling. A moment comes when all chaos

Biography of Eminem

“And get that motivation to not give up, and not be a quitter, No matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face, and collapse” (Mathers).

Does this sound like the words of a leader? Marshall Mathers, otherwise known as Eminem, on November 12, 1996, changed the rap world forever. Eminem, the man who George Bush once called, “the most dangerous threat to American children since polio,” is a leader nonetheless (Eminem: Unlikely Leader). Not every leader has to change the world like Oprah or Rosa Parks. Not every leader has to appeal to everyone, and some people have to have a different outlook for their point to make sense. In Determining the effects Emenem has had on today’s society, it is necessary to look at his early life, musical life, and his life now.

Shooting an Elephant by George Orwell

Orwell says that even though he hated British imperialism and sympathized with the Burmese people, he found himself a puppet of the system. A lot of what happened to me in about the past two weeks relates to a lot of what happened to Orwell in Shooting the Elephant. In the last two weeks my ex girlfriend met some new guy. The problem was he was twenty years old while she was only fifteen. So as much as it hurt that my ex girlfriend met a new guy, because we were still in love with each other. We were just dysfunctional.

The Goddess Athena

Back in time when Greece was making its mark in history as one of the great civilizations of the Ancient World, there was a great deal of emphasis on the Gods and Goddesses. To the Greeks the world was governed by the Gods and they were the reason many things happened in the world, mostly thing that where unexplainable.

Sanity is For the Weak, and There is a Yeti in My Backyard: the Day in the Life of That girl in Your English Class.

I have heard it said before that creative people tend to be crazy. Well if life was a post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy, then I could be considered a crazy creative person. The life I lead is far from the social norm of most twenty-one year old college students. When I think of college students the key words that come to mind are: dorms, parties, studying and the best years of your life. Unfortunately my life has very little to do with all of those things. For along with college, I rent my own house, work two jobs and have no life. Even this essay; which began with the Greeks, and later inspired by jealousy was not written normally. This is not even my first essay; the Greeks did in fact eat my paper (damn Trojan virus!) So in protest of myself and in challenge; I decided to create a new essay. I tend to be inspired in strange ways. When I met a friend in between classes I noticed that she had an odd pair of boots. They were dark brown, furry at the top, and laced up. In summery they were the perfect boots to hunt a yeti, and I desperately wanted a pair. For if I had a pair of said yeti hunting boots, I could write a short story about a yeti in the frozen tundra. Thus began the hunt for a pair of yeti hunting boots, but that is a different story; this story is about me, and what happens in a period of twenty-four hours.

My Favorite Possesion

My favorite possession is a guitar. I cannot live without it. The reason why I love it so much is that it’s been hand made from my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather. This guitar means the world to me. Why does it mean so much? Well, it has our family history on it since the late 1890’s. So this guitar is ancient!. Originally my grandpa told me a story that my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandpa had carved this guitar for his wife because she loved to hear music, and she loved to dance. And he loved her so much, he would have walked to the moon 12 times for her. Every time I hear that story, I like it even more and more because you can understand what it means. This very guitar was made out of love. I love this guitar, I like to mess around with it. I have a lot of memories with it. One Christmas eve, as everyone was sitting close to the fireplace, drinking hot chocolate, my grandma got in the mood to dance. She told my mom to get the guitar, and she demanded (playfully) for me to play. So I did. She got my grandpa and they danced around our living room. Everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves. You should have seen the twinkle in my grandma’s eyes as if they were laughing inside; as she eyed me with the guitar. But soon, my grandpa grew tired and I stopped, she still kept on dancing; she told me to keep on playing and she grabbed my 19 year-old brother and danced with him! I could not and would not stop laughing!
