The Ultimate Camp Trip based on a true story
2/17/2013
Kayla Baird

One weekend, two best friends, Layla and Ashlynn, decided to go on a camping trip. It was going perfect, until in the middle of the night, when they heard the most horrific scream.
Layla immediately jumps up. “WHAT WAS THAT?”
“I..um…don’t know. Should we check it out?”
“What do we have to protect us?”

“I can call on Mina, my magical llama.”
“Nooo….Ashlynn…just no. Here grab this twig, and I’ll take my pillow.”
“What are you going to do with a pillow? Sing them a lullaby and make whatever that was fall asleep.”
“Shut up.”

In a crouched position, they headed for the woods. Somehow the friends sensed the scream came from that direction.
As they were walking, Ashlynn spotted a blood trail then heard footsteps to the right of them. She grabbed Layla’s arm and pointed to the right. There was obviously something or someone walking. After a moment of silence, they decided to follow.
Finally, it stopped. Layla and Ashlynn crept close enough to see what it was. It happened to be a grizzly bear. They ceased with fear.
“I know you are there. You both fail at being sneaky.” Layla almost fainted. She whispered, “Did that bear just talk? It can’t be.” “Indeed I did, sweetheart.”
“How can you talk?” Ashlynn demanded. “The same way you can, by opening my mouth. Humans are so naive to believe the conception that animals can’t talk.” Layla jumped back into the conversation. “Did you hear that awful scream?”

“Yes.”
“Do you know what happened?” Ashlynn asked.
“No. You see when the scream took place, I was…uh…running…from a tiger. This must have been the fastest tiger alive.”
“There are tigers in these woods?”
“Of course.”

“Well, why were you running from the tiger?”
“Because….um…….I…..hit his brother. Yea, I hit his brother, so he started chasing…...

"Advantages & Disadvantages of Mastering the English Language and Politics" Mastering the English laguage and politics can cause a possitive and negative efffect on a person by pointing out the flaws of society and government issues. Mastering the english language enlightens one on how to survive in this society and what this government is based on. Language can cause conflict to ones emotions an thoughts about this society and government,and its history. Fredrick Douglass, Malcolm X, and Jonathan Kozol help me show how when a person lives in this society without mastering its language they are unable to properly provide for themself or others, mastering the English language educates one in many differet political aspects, an how mastering the English language can open ones eyes to the flaws in this government and society and make them have negative feelings towards it. A person is unable to properly provide for themselves or their families if they have not mastered the english language.

English Essay

...When I was first assigned to write a persuasive essay about the future in September, I wrote it about the different logic of people. Many can accept change that is heading towards them while many hesitate to approach it. Writing this essay was difficult because I didn’t have as much knowledge as I do now. As time went by, looking back at this essay, I believe I could’ve done a better job. As I improved on my persuasive essays, it began getting easier to develop ideas and set a theme to my writing. In the beginning it was harder to get all of my thoughts together and make my paragraphs flow. Now that I’ve mastered writing persuasive essays, my ideas flow together without taking too much time trying to fix the way my sentences formed. In the beginning of the first marking period, we were assigned to answer short constructed answers in the form of a paragraph essay. As difficult as it was in October, it is much easier now that I have many techniques I could use in writing. In the “The Autobiography” We explained the different perspectives the author, Benjamin, Franklin spoke in. It was a very complex assignment because we were limited to a paragraph. Trying to put down sentences to explain what my point was was very difficult because my sentences were not constructed properly. Throughout marking period two, I mastered writing short answers without going off topic and creating run on sentences. I learned how to place my sentences in the order which they make sense and most......

Creative Thinking Essay

...Critical and Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays Week One Describe a situation of public interest in which critical and/or creative thought could have been used for a better outcome. Describe why it is important to think critically and creatively in similar situations. One situation that comes immediately to mind is the phenomenon of climate change we are currently dealing with and how we are woefully unprepared to cope with it. If critical and/or creative thought had been used by all concerned, instead of fear and denial, we would be in a better position to handle and curtail these climate changes. When the data that pointed to human-induced climate change first was made public, it seemed that fear and hysteria was the common theme in most discussions of the problem. It has gotten better in recent years but it may be a case of too little, too late. It is important to think critically and creatively because it helps you to see the whole picture. When you think critically, all sides of the problem such as history, a source, a context are considered making a realistic and effective solution to a problem more likely. Define free will, truth, knowledge, and opinion. Explain how we use them to form thoughts. What role does each play in critically assessing situations? We have free will when we have the freedom of self-determination, action and ability to make choices. If the choice is consistent with a person's desires and nature then it is representative of a......

...Essay summary: Suki Kim’s “Facing Poverty with a Rich Girls Habits” Facing Poverty with a Rich Girls Habits is an insightful essay published in New York by the author Suki Kim. In this essay, she shares various challenges that she had to overcome in order to adapt to a new life of poverty and cultural diversity in New York after leaving behind her affluent and luxurious life in South Korea. This article discusses the author’s point of view as 13-year-old Korean immigrant who moved to United States out of desperation and financial tragedy rather than in search of a better life. The author’s main idea in this essay is to convey the message that the foundation of divided immigrant groups, cultural differences and generation gap are so deeply rooted even in the United States that it is impossible to eradicate them from the mindset of people. The author emphasizes on the fact that her wealthy and sheltered background in Korea created confusion. Thus, making it difficult for her to identify with people’s perception of her race in America “One new fact that took more time to absorb was that I was now Asian, a term that I had heard mentioned only in social studies class”, stated author Suki Kim in her article. She continued, “In Korea, yellow was the color of the forsythia that bloomed every spring along the fence that separated our estate from the houses down the hill. I certainly never thought of my skin as being the same shade.” The author struggled to accept the fact......

Det med fed blå skrift er ting jeg har rettet – en foræring betyder, at du har lavet noget, der er SUPER godt! Florianne by David Woodrell (Essay) The loss of someone, especially one’s own flesh and blood like a daughter, is a hard thing to deal with. In the story the narrator experiences a lack of closure, after the disappearance of his daughter. When we focus on a loss and the lack of closure, the ability to deal with it becomes weaker. Woodrell exemplifies this with utter realism. This essay will be focusing of characterization of the narrator, analysis of the setting etc. , is even harder, to deal with pain you are going through (noget galt her.. kommateringen forstyrrer også..). It is as if you are in your own inner circle WHILE everyone else is outside having no idea, what you are going through and you have that constant desperate feeling, that you want the person you have lost to come back to you(slettes) (du sætter ALT for mange kommaer, og de virker forstyrrende.

...Argumentative Essay: Why is it so Important to Know More than One Language We live in a multilingual world that is becoming increasingly globalized and it is therefore very important to know more than one language. There are three main reasons for this: an additional language can help you progress in your career, you gain an awareness of other cultures, and it helps increase our understanding and knowledge of our own language. More and more job advertisements are now specifying that they want second, third, and even fourth languages in some cases, and knowing more than one language opens up your prospects in a highly important way. Furthermore, as more and more companies begin to trade internationally, people are frequently beginning jobs for which they need no language skills, but then being asked to relocate abroad, or offered a promotion that requires language skills. Therefore, it helps with career enhancement. Some people refute this claim by saying that there are plenty of other jobs available, but this is simply not the case anymore with the global recession and more countries being international. The second reason that it is important to know more than one language is that it increases cultural awareness and allows you to communicate with different people. All good methods of learning languages also entail learning about another culture, especially when your language skills get to a higher level. This awareness allows people from different nationalities and......

...movement dealt with the way human personality seemed to change, and it embraced disruption and rejection to move beyond the simplistic. - women, their intelligence and their judgment had always been regarded with contempt by a male oriented society - according to Dora Marsden a English feminist, women had been seen and treated more as complements to the men in their lives than as individuals or spiritual entities; they were depicted in literature as womanly, weak, dutiful and stupid. Most authors continued to write with the misguides perception that women were always inferior to men. - the turn of the century and its many changes, industrialization in particular, gave a number of women the change to work outside of the home. - Mary Coolidge, in 'why are women so', ''not a few'' of these women were able to use their inherent intelligence and started to question and defy the traditional place of woman in western society. - as time progressed a gradual change took place and ''the new woman'' emerged between the two world wars. - the major aims of this modern woman was economic and financial independence. This type of freedom brought with it other rights: 1. to choose whether to marry or remain single, 2. to obtain work positions, 3. the right of sexual expression, and so much more. - Most important thing for the 'the new woman' was intellectual freedom, women were looking for self-realization, for the ability to use their intellectual abilities and talents to find......

...provoking. My main objective would be to read these noteworthy books, and then draft my papers and essays to reflect how that particular author wrote. At that point I became so determined to create remarkable literature that I began to practice by writing in my journal every night. My writings would run the gamut-from the somewhat dull day to day activities I engaged in to what the latest hot gossip in school was. When it came time to writing papers in middle school I was certain I had it nailed down, that I would always get an A+ on my writing. So when some teachers did and others did not, I didn’t understand? I was heartbroken, thinking that I had done everything I could possibly do by creating interesting stories so they would be amazed at how well I could transcribe. But the real challenge arose when I got into high school. Although I had made it into AP English, it was ten times harder than I had ever expected. Coming from a small school where your class size is made up of only 23 students, being accepted into a class like that was a huge accomplishment, but also overwhelming. We began reading stories and books that I had absolutely no understanding of. So when asked to write long essays focusing on our opinions and views of these stories, mine could be written in just a few sentences. I simply did not understand them, and my writing ultimately revealed that. Being in an advanced English class, our teacher not surprisingly expected the work of advanced students, and for......

In addition, many countries have already faced issues with the Muslim believers. Islam has caused problems, terrorist attacks, anti-democracy all over the world. They were also very successful in sending a message of who they truly are. People who are literally obedient to the Islamic faith are called Islamic Extremists. People, who are of the Islamic faith however desire to survive in peace without tribulations are not considered obedient or dutiful to the Islamic faith, these people are called moderate Muslims. Therefore, the Islamic religious extremists are the major group in Islam who follow the Qur’an word for word and create extreme violence that moderate Muslims do not. Islamic extremism started in Egypt in the late 1920s. During the inter-war years, the country was occupied by the British military. The Nationalist Wafd movement, led by Saad Zaghloul, opposed the presence of the British, as would anyone whose country is being occupied by a foreign military power. (A brief history of Islamic extremism) In 1928, Hassan al-Banna established the term “The Muslim Brotherhood” which was the first Islamist movement. The British government supported the nascent movement in an attempt to counterbalance the Nationalists. In modern Egyptian politics, the Muslim Brotherhood is the......

...reality we are heathens when we run around, and call each other Nigga’s carelessly. We have so much black on black crime now then blacks had when growing up in a racist community. Baldwin wants the liberal whites to know the injustice, inequality, and hardship caused by racism. He achieves this by writing a letter to his nephew expressing images, anger, and to accuse whites of racial injustice. Baldwin uses a letter to his nephew to express the anger he feels toward white people. One example of Baldwin expressing his anger is when he states: “I nor time nor history will ever forgive them, that they have destroyed and are destroying hundreds of thousands of lives and do not know it and do not want to know it(2) “. Baldwin paints a life that has been deeply affected by the ignorance of whites to a life that we blacks must now learn to love, and, respect them. Baldwin points out the racism from whites that is killing the soul of black people, while picturing the change that whites must make, and, ultimately blacks must give acceptance in order to be free. He’s also claiming whites do not know they are hurting us with their words, and, actions, and don’t want to know the truth of the matter. Each time a white person calls a black person a Nigger they are destroying our self esteem. Baldwin uses a letter to trick his liberal white audience, but also knows that the letter to his nephew will be used as a reference for years......

...When a student needs to write an English essay for an English class, one good way to learn what types of information should be included in the document and for how the article should be laid out is to look for free English articles that provide some guidance. A free English essay may help a learner to understand what an English report should look like, especially if the student has never had to produce an essay for an English class or if the student is a new college student and is curious about how a college-level English report should look. There are many reasons that a student may need to use a free English article. Aside from using free English essays to learn and improve their writing skills, some students look for free English essays in order to research a topic that they are studying. The student may also look for a free English essay in order to use the report as a basis for his or her own document. If a student is looking for a free English essay to use as a research document or as a basis for his or her own document, then the student needs to first understand what the topic of his or her assignment is so that the pupil can be sure that the reports he or she finds suit the needs of the topic.
