One day when I wanted to know more about my
parents and how they become to know each other i asked them some questions
on this subject.
It all started when my dad first came to America when he was around
20 yrs old. He was new and know english but haed to understand with his
acient. My mom who grew up in Arlington mass never has been to europe at
all. So some how my mom and dad meet in a bar in downtown Boston and
became very friendly and started dating. My mom learned alot from him and
my dad learned alot from my mom.
This is how i became to this earth and started a new life. If my mom
and dad didnt get alog so good I would not be here on earth and u would
not have me as a student.
backyard appriciated? behind my house there is a place that is not
lookedat as part ofmy yard. Most people will look at my yard and not even
see or reconize this place. Its located off to the left of my yard a
little woodend area with lots of leaves and sticks. I believe this is
unappriciated because of this reason. As i have been watching this place
for two weeks i have not seen much happen but a few more leaves fall on an
already leafy area.
Looking out my bedroom window i see my backyard. I do not see
all of my backyard there is a place lonely not looked at as part of my
backyard. Everyday for two weeks i have not seen one bird, squrral make a
home in this place. Was this place put here for no reason or to not be
appriciated? Two weeks pass their i keep looking and each day I see more
and more leafs fall on this place.How my people are appriciatd for their
backyard? Well it seems to me that no one is appriciating this backyard
like they should.
As Bob Dylan said "the times they are changin" and soon the
timewill change and this place will be looked at as an appriciated
American plce. Because this is and American place its on American terrain
and should be appriciated like when Indians used this trrain for survival
Dickinson lived from 1830-1886. Her poems
usually were short she used dashes which was very unusual. Her poems also
were mostly quatrains and had either exact rhyme or slant rhyme. One of
her poems that was very good was “I heard a fly buzz when I died”. This
poem on how she describes death makes me feel like I was there.
Dickinson does this by using death as a dominant theme. For example:
The stillness in the room/ was like the
Stillness in the air. The eyes around-
Her had wrung dry/- and breaths were
Gathering them firm.
She uses strong words like eyes, breaths, and stillness and relates them
to death very well. Dickinson puts the reader into the funeral parlor to
show the reader the effects of one persons death.
When she talks about the fly its very suttle. She talks about the fly
only once or twice. She sticks that word in and you wouldn’t even notice.
“With blue – uncertain stumbling buzz-between the light-and me-.” This is
a good example on how she can just put it in so sudden. She makes death
seem like a slow process, how she drags her words on.
This poem is very unusual. When most people think of death they think
of a bright white funnel or heaven. Who would think of a fly buzzing? I
think this is very unusual to explain death by using a fly as a prop.
I felt death in this poem to the first person. How she describes
death and makes you feel it is unreal.
Ice Hockey was not invented it evolved. It
originated around 1800, in Windsor, where the boys of Canada’s first
college, Kings College established in 1788, adopted the exciting field
game of Hurley. Hurley was played on grass, not ice but these boys played
this game on ice during the winter on their favorite ponds. Soon after
this soldiers at fort Edward in Windsor took up the new game they carried
it to Halifax, Canada, where people there picked up on it and played it
often. Nova Scotia transformed the name to ice hockey.
Professional players believe that hockey is a game for tough kids who
like fast pace and strong competition. They pay respect to the kids who
evolved the sport. Without them they would not be able to play what they
love as a career. According to Ray Bourque “I started liking this game
when I first picked up the hockey stick”.
Amateur players are people who play this sport for recreation and
fun. I interviewed my brother, Eric, who has played hockey most of his
life. I asked him what he thought about hockey, he said “I love to play
hockey but the side effect of this, is hard work going to practice all the
time”. He says “but in the long run it all pays off because I am playing
a competitive sport that I love”. In other words after the hard work this
game can be very fun and exiting.
Newspaper writers who write this sport for a living talk about there
love for the sport and how they enjoyed playing it as little kids. These
writers have studied hockey and sports in general for many years. They
know everything about this sport from history, statistics and the players.
One writer said " Im going to be writing about hockey my whole life untill
I die." This shows how much dedication this writers have in doing this.
Today this sport has been adopted all around the world. The
Europeans have a little advantage because they have been playing this
sport longer than the Americans. When I was younger I too, played hockey
and found it very exciting, competitive and fun. I would not recommend
this sport for individuals who do not like competition, teamwork, having
fun. Hockey is a vigorous sport that requires lots of hard work and
