Ordering a latteI got in line at my favorite cafe inside Barnes and Noble and looked at the menu board scanning for the day's special; the special always cost $3.00; but in my case, I always had to add $ .50 for soy and another $.50 for extra syrup. I was lucky my regular flavor was on the day's special, tall, soy, Double sweet, Hazelnut mocha. After I made my order I Scanned the crowd and I saw my old school mate Karlynn walk in from the rain she called me about a month ago to ask a favor, she wanted to show her art in my studio in Seattle, I told her that I had been trying to find her for the same reason. Therefore, we decided to meet up and go over her portfolio.
TattooMy first tattoo I got when I was 31 yrs old, my girlfriend at the time paid for it; only $100.00 bucks she gave a $20.00 tip. The artist was great he had a light-handed touch, when I went in for my consultation I was told to bring in the design I wanted along with ideas for colors that I and the size I wanted it to be. When the day of my appointment came, I was so nerviest I had goose bumps. I was almost late for my appointment When I got there I told the artist to choose the colors that he thought best the outline was done in black first
Greyhound bus stationHe said that he was coming into town, he just did not say how. After surviving, two helicopter crashes in the war I knew he would not want to travel by plane, which left traveling by bus or train Jonathan is my best and closest friend. Especially after I dragged him kicking and screaming out of a rut after his second wife left him for something she swore she did not want, life as a military wife. He went off the deep end trying to chase her back to him of course this was all before he joined the Army. As I said, I dragged him kicking and screaming back to his rational senses. Just as he did for me on too many occasions for me to count, he always saw me as the little sister he has always wanted; he was the second person in my life to show me unconditional love. I gave it right back tenfold. I have no clue how I ever would have gotten along in my life without him. Whenever
An answering machine messageThe phone was ringing when I reached in to my pocket for my keys to the apartment. By the time I got the key in the lock it stop ringing and the answering machine picked it up. The voice was masculine and had an accent that I could not recognize nor place, the name he gave was foreign yet familiar, as I dropped the stack of mail on to the counter and my purse on the back of the couch, I kicked off my shoes at the door.

I got another postcard from Zoëy today this one says she is in Rome, Italy. She said that the air is grand and clean and that the villa that she is staying in is beautiful. She said that she had seen the ruins of ages old and gone, like the Roman Coliseum as well as the leaning tower of Pisa, which is so much bigger than they make it to be. She says that she is having dinner at a winery tonight and hopes that she does not fall in love with the most expensive wine on the list.

High school 9th gradeEveryone hates the first day of school, & I'm no exception. The popularity contest starts the same day, no other guessing games start until the middle of the year, you know the ones; who's most likely to succeed, who's the class clown, who's the teacher's pet, and all the other ones which are too many to list. New friends are made, old friends moved on to different schools, new enemies made, old enemies forgotten. Anyway, my name is Zoey Elisabeth Bathorery, & I am 13 years old. Too young you say to be in high school! On the contrary, I have an IQ of 145, & I am a card-carrying member of MENSA (a high profile club for nerds). A child Prodigy & outcast of most educational institutions, I was home schooled most of my life, my mom, had tried public schools but they were too boring & I also had a hard time sitting still. I made many enemies of the teachers, for correcting them in front of the class & from some jealous fellow students. All the different things my mom makes me do or the hobb
I'm AliveIn 2011 14,000 people had their names incorrectly entered into the government database as dead. This can cause many issues, like not receiving disability checks, having loan payments and rent check bounds bounce, and evening getting your accounts closed. There were obviously mistakes for these people.
The apostle Paul was not mistaken when he said that the Ephesian Believers were at one point dead-spiritually dead. They were dead in the sense that they were separated from God, enslaved to sin, and condemned under the wrath of God. What a state of hopelessness!
Yet God in His goodness took action to reverse this condition for them and for us. The living God “who gives life to the dead” (Romans 4:17) poured out his Rich mercy and great love by sending His Son Jesus to this earth. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, we are made alive.
When we believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we go from death to life. Now we live to rejoice in His goodness
The Origins of Dragon MythologyThe Origins of Dragon Mythology
Dragons are fantastical beasts that appear in almost all cultures around the world. Dragons are symbols of man’s hatred and greed as we known as the dangerous reptiles that hoard gold. As for western dragons which I will be speaking of exclusively in this essay they are typically large, lizard-like in appearance, have leathery bat-like wings, and breathe fire. Since Dragon can literally apply to any mythological animal that is slightly reptilian, we will talk about your traditional western wyrm. But how did the dragon of western culture come to be this way, what were their origins and inspirations? In this essay I will discuss the evolution of Dragon mythology in western culture. I do not claim to have any credentials on this topic, I am not a historian or any type authority on this topic I’m just espousing what I believe to be a theory on what I believe to be how dragons arouse in European culture an
Senior Research Paper: Violence in Video GamesMatt Hines

Violence in Video Games
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “video games”? A fat plumber? A blue hedgehog? What about violence? Back in the day, it was rare that you could play a game with any sort of blood, and the violence was cartoonish at best. Nowadays, you can’t even play Call of Duty without hearing someone bickering about the blood and gore. The media believes that video games are a bad influence on today’s society because of that violence, along with things like drugs. Many gamers believe otherwise.
Video games in general are relatively young. According to “First Video Game,” ignoring the related-but-unnecessary debate on what the first game really was, the first well-known computer game was 1961’s Spacewar!, with the first home console debuting only five years later. Fast-forward to 1976, and you have the (in)famous Death Race, a game based on the cult movie
Pink Floyd Analytical Essay“The Lunatic is in my Head”
Dark Side of the Moon is an album by British rock band, Pink Floyd. It was recorded in April 1973, and quickly climbed the top of the record charts. There it stayed for 741weeks and grossed near 45 million worldwide. The overall theme for the album reflects the inner struggle of the average youth of the time, which still holds true today. Roger Waters, the band’s bass player, based the album off the former guitar player, Syd Barrett. Syd Barrett had numerous mental instabilities, this inspired Waters to create an album that reflected that. Dark Side of the Moon is one of the most influential albums in history, but not many people understand what it is really about. The album’s concept is the issues of a mental patient, and what is going on in his head at the hospital where he is being withheld from society. The concept is strongly held in the lyrics, tempos, and the mood of each song.
The first song on the album is “Speak to me&
Book Report: A Night to RememberWalter Lord published his account of the Titanic disaster in 1955. It was the first retelling of the famous shipwreck to appear in decades and is now considered by most to be the best book ever written about the doomed “unsinkable” ship. It tells the story of a cold night in April, 1912, when the luxury liner RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, struck an iceberg in the frigid North Atlantic and sank, taking the lives of 1500 of its 2200 passengers and crew. Some of those lost were among the most well-known names of the day, and others were impoverished immigrants hoping for a new life in America. Rich and poor, famous and unknown, all were thrown together in one massive drama of death that both defined the societal expectations of the Edwardian era and sounded its death knell.
What sets "A Night to Remember" apart from other books about the Titanic is that the book focuses solely on the people on board. It is a fitting choice, as the story of the
El comienzoNarradora: Tifanny Winter
Aclaraciones los personajes son totalmente míos y además la historia
Recuerdo el primer día en que te conocí, el primer instante en que nuestras miradas se cruzaron sin darle importancia, ya que aquel accidente, bueno aquel choque que sucedió en la mañana ninguno presto la atención suficiente para darnos cuenta de que la persona que estaba al frente tirada, era la persona que más querríamos y amaremos en un futuro, para que entiendan a cabalidad esta historia comenzare desde aquella preciosa mañana.
Me desperté tarde para mi buena suerte, claramente me levante de un salto de la cama para prepararme para la universidad, desayune lo más rápido casi atragantándome pero sin darle importancia, me cambie con lo primero que encontré en mis cajones del armario, m
El Arte de Usar y TirarOdio la palabra piscolabis. No es porque suene especial, diferente, única... o quizás sí, por lo que desentraña y pasaré a explicar más tarde. Lo que más rabia me da es por el pequeño trauma que me recuerda, surgido de un derivado que poco tiene que ver con la propia palabra aunque se le aplique igualmente.
Mi trauma surgió a partir de un pseudo-gafapaster que catalogaba libros en plan “aperitivo” o “plato fuerte”. Si me hubiese mirado en ese momento, se habría preguntado por mi cara de teleñeco, pero se limitó a seguir con su verborrea y “especiedeprepotenciaquenollegaperodalaimpresión” con respecto a sus gustos personales. No recuerdo de qué me habló, pues divagaba entre un infinito inventado y una realidad aparente, a causa de la impresión que ya no se me ha borrado sobre catalogar la cultura como si fuera algo de consumir... y poco m
Mexican Drug War in Mexico and its HistoryMexican Drug War in Mexico and its History
Ever since the month of December of 2006, Mexico and the surrounding Continent of South America have been fighting a long drug war for years now. The war between the Drug Cartels and Mexican government has affected the country for a very long time. The number of deaths on both sides has been very high in the past years. Along with the drug trafficking, there is also the problem with the shootouts and people trafficking. However, with the help of the US government and other countries nearby, the amount of Drug Cartels has gone down in large numbers. But the Mexican Drug War hasn’t stopped just yet.
In the Illegal Drug Trade-which in the US is handled by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration)-, there isn’t just straight-across drugs being trafficked. And not pharmaceuticals, either. Most of the drugs being traded across Mexico and the surrounding countries are more along the lines of Heroin, M
