How My Parents Met
One dayme and my mother sat down in my living room and she started
telling me a lot of stories, all of the stories she told me were wonderful
but there is one that struck to my head. That one is when and where my
parents neet. This is a funny story because a lot of weird stuff happend
to them before thay start going out.
The stori begins when my father was in my granfathers store in the
Dominican Republic, and that morning a young lady walk by the store and
decided to come in for some food. My father was sitting in the steps and
the first thing that came to his head was "who is that." The first thatng
that my grabfather said to him was "stay away from that one." My dad said
"why" and he said because her mother is a "witch". In his head my father
said thats fine i will chande that, and he started talking to her everday,
and my mother seemed very interesting as well because she kept coming back
My grandfather keep thinking this will probably work out. But a week
later he went to go visit the parents and her mother was very rough with
him but he didn't care. They went and moved in together and have never
This reminded my garnfather about him and my granmother. Because he
was telling me that his mother-in-law was also like that and that she
didn't like him, but with a few flowers and kisses he won her heart over
and she loves him know.
Thier where a lot of people that thought it couldn't happen but they
are still together and i dont think that anyone is going to break them up.
They have problems like every other relationship, but they aren't going to
break up at all. This happens in everyday america because every guy goes
through this at every point of his life, but we all get through it and we
most of the time get the girl that we want. So it wasn't an unusual story
because everyone goes through this.
around is great. You can justsit donw and fall a sleep if you want because
its so calm. This pine tree is the biggest one around and it is right in
front of my house. It seems like if the tree sees everything because when
it is sad you can see it when it is happy it is as green as it can be.
Such like in the words of emrson "I become a transparent eyeball; I am
nothing ; I see all ." I become one with the tree because no one really
sees what I see.
One day sitting in my porch I saw this beautiful pinetree that noone
paid any attention to. But if you look closely into it you just don't see
a tree, you see, a house for other animals, you see it give shade to
anyone that wants it in the summer. This is why it is not just a tree but
a part of our family. The only big problem is that almost everyone ignores
it because it is just a tree. Everyone walks by and doesn't think, Oh!
This tree is probably hundreds and hundreds of years old? Noone thinks
that is has been in the streets of boston for as long as is been there
for. We dont think maybe this tree has more history of wars fought in the
Americas that we will ever know about. For the time that I was watching
this tree I didn't see many people walk by there and the ones that did
didn't pay any attention to it or didn't respect it because its just a
tree so they can throw trash all around it. We should appretiate the
nature on Earth.
This tre was put in this world for a reason, you may never know the
reason why the tree was put their, but we can't say anything because we
dont know the history or the future of that tree. You will never no when
this tree might help any of us out one day. We dont know how many wars
this tree has been throught. Imagine if this tree knew how to speak just
imagine what it would say
One day there were two kids that were born in
boston, and there were pete and pablo. Both of them were very bad at the
age of twelve they were already getting into problems with the cops. Every
day they did a prank to someone and the bad thing was that they only did
the prank to someone and the bad thing was that they only did the pranks
to old people that they knew couldn't do anything back at them.
But one day it was sunny and hot and they both decided to go out and
find and old person and do the best prank that they have ever done. So
they both decided to go take a walk and find a little old lady to go and
do a prank to. They ranned after this lady and started to check her out,
and were thinking what prank they can do to her, so they satretd thinking
what prank they can do to her, so they started thinking and they decided
to go and buy some eggs and egg her and any other person they could fing.
But the old lady had been hit beforeby them and she was thinking, she
already had some eggs in her bag. After the kids went to the store they
went and hid behind a bush and went the old lady came by they started to
talk to her and asked her do you want us to help you cross the street and
she said yes knwing what they were giong to do.
But when the kid came to help her she and ohter friends came and
started to destroy the kids with eggs and all the kids could do was cry
and cover there faces so the old ladys wouldn't take there eyes out anmd
after all of that happend they said that they are to depressed and had to
leave there house so ther father said that they could stay only if they
had a job and the big problem was that
Emily Dickinson who was born in 1830 and died in
1886 was stiil a very young woman when she died. She was the type of girl
that never came out of her house. Everything that she knew she thought her
self. She didn't want anyone to know about her writting. They estimated
that she wrote over 1770 poem in her lifetime. At around the age of
thirty-two she fell in love with a man but it never worked out.
she died she told her sister to burn all of her poems that she didn't want
any on them published, but we still got most of her poems in our hands.
Most of her poems are slant rhyme, Quatrines, and most of her poems are
very short. She puts all of her though tinto her poems.
One way that Emily Dickinson writes her poems is by slant rhyme.
"My life closed twice before its close/It yet remains to see. This shows
us that you dont have to have exact rythm to make a poem. Using the title
in the poem will even bring more meaning to the poem because it will
explain what the title is all about. Also by using the title as on of your
line it will help the reader know the meaning of the whole much easier
because it is explaning what the title means as well as the whole poem.
These two lines also show that slant rhyme can also be no rhyme at all
like you see in the two lines above.
Other ways that she writes her poems is by exact rhyme, because
it might sound much better. "As these that twice befell/and all we need of
hell". Hears befell and hell are the perfect rhyme. Befell has fell in it
and hell is as low as you can get. This also shows she writes her poems in
different ways so that the reader wont keep listening to the same rhyme
over and over. Here it shows that she mixes her poems in the way that she
writes them because previously i showed you that she was using Slant rhyme
and now she has exact rhyme and still her poems are still great.
Another way that she writes her poem is that in quatrines, and
that lines one and two rhyme and that three and four rhyme.
"My life closed twice before its close,
It yet remains to see,
As these that twice befell
And all we need of hell"
In this she shows us in how many different ways she can write all her
poems. In every single one of them she has something different so it makes
it intereresting to read her poems. Also everytime thatshe mixes them it
gives us something new to looke at. By her doing these we cant wait to
read her other poems because we are loking which other way she is going to
do her poem in.
This poem is great because it uses so many diferent kinds of
rhythmic ways that she uses in all of her poems. She makes her poems sound
so much better than a lot of poems out there. All of her poems sound so
much better because there are very short but they get to the point very
quick and it also teaches us a lot of lessons that could even helps us out
in life and just while being with your friends. Most of Emily Dickinsons's
poems are very inspirational because she is writting about stuff that is
happening in evevryday life, to all of us.
Bobsledding it is not a sport that is very fun, but there are a
lot of athletes that have worked their whole life just to become the best
that they can be in bobsledding. There are a lot of athletes that at first
didn’t even know what bobsledding was or if it was a sport. Athletes like
Vonetta Flowers first start off being track stars winning every track
event that they do, and then hear about other stars like themselves that
are trying out for a bobsled team and they all try it out. The thing is
that they all become stars at bobsledding as well. Definition of sports is
designed or suitable for outdoors. Just like bobsledding that is designed
or suitable for outdoors.
Bobsledding was developed in Switzerland in the late 19th
century; first someone tried it in a toboggan to get more speed down hill.
The sport first became popular with British and American visitors. The
word “bobsled” came from people trying to bobb their bodies back and forth
to get grater speed, but it didn’t work and the name stuck with it. In
1898 the first competition was held, and it was five-passenger sleds and
two had to be woman. With this design the sled became dangerous fast, and
so in 1902 a gentler slope was built so speeds would go as high. In 1932
they changed the rules and made it a four-man sled for safety reasons.
One of the best African American bobsledders Vonetta Flowers had
a similar path to bobsled as many famous track athletes had. She was
competing in the 2000 Olympic track and field trials in the long jump,
when she saw a flyer that says Bobsledding tryouts. So as a competitor
that she is she decided to try it out with her husband. She was such a
good athletes that are her first year she mastered it and broke the world
starting record in October of 2000 at a park in Utah where the 2002
Olympics were held. She said, “I always tried 150% but I never knew that I
would’ve broken a record.” Vonneta is still trying to get an Olympic
medal, and says that she “will get it in the next Olympic.”
There are a lot of amateurs bobsledders out there like Julio
Hernandez (a friend of my uncle’s). He says “Bobsledding is a sport like
any other that just takes your mind out off problems.” Julio was telling
me that he has being messing around with bobsleds since he was a teenager
but never got into it so seriously as to take it to another level, like
the Olympics. Julio says “that he does it for the love of the sport, and
that he is going to try to tell his son to give it a try. Julio got very
emotional because he says.” all that he wants is for him to see one of his
family member just quality for the Olympic.” This is his long dream.
Bobsledding is an American sport because the first artificial
bobsled run was built in Mount Van Hoevenberg, in New York. The two-man
bobsled was developed in the United States. Until the 1950’s, the U.S.
bobsledders were the best in the world, because we had better technology
innovations The U.S. won at least one gold medal in bobsledding at each
Olympic until 1952, when they won Silver Medal instead. Two Americans Bob
and Bill linney were the first to develop the all-steel steed with shock
absorbers to increase speed, in 1946.
