Descriptive Essay

Working to find my inner peace, I go from place to place just looking for the solitude. A warm, comforting place that I may call my own. That place has been found and not many can claim it for it is mine. Out in the rolling country side of Fort Meade, Florida is a dream just unfolding. The Sunkist sunrise and sunset, the breath taking stars, and the calm, solitary squeeze against my being just makes it all the more better. On the outskirts of the Lilliputian town there is nothing more than the everlasting land where it’s hard to tell where the sky starts and where it stops. Nothing more than a relationship between nature and myself. Cool breezes drag the scent of pine trees and water through the air and the grass grows tall and dark green. Hawks, pigeons, and quails make beautiful music as their aria begins to sync. So the only sounds you can hear are the arias being sung and the wind blowing through my hair. The sunset glows of many pinks, yellows, lavenders, and blues as the day begins to kiss the land goodnight. The numerous birds flee to their nests as they begin to drift into slumber as the night is just beginning. The luminous moon rises to the center of the dark, velvet curtain. Its illumination kisses every tree, strand of grass, and the mist obscuring the few houses that scatter the land. Although the birds are nestled in their homes, the foxes, raccoons, and creatures of the night come out to find their next meal. No longer is there a breeze brushing my skin for it is now humidity that clenches me in its breath taking hold. Glancing up at the night, galaxies and constellations liter the velvet curtain, leaving a lasting impression. Shooting stars fly by and I send my wishes with them as the soar through the velvet sky. Never could you see a scene in the city as you do out here in the country…...

Favorite Place to Travel

...My favorite place to travel to while on vacation is Orlando, Florida. Orlando has become our home away from home and the traditional family vacation spot. During our vacation there we experience a lot of shopping spots, great restaurants and last but not least Disney World. We take our family there every year and we always have a wonderful time. But our favorite place to relax and visit while in Orlando is to stay at our vacation home. We plan and prepare excitedly for the special time to spend with the entire family during the kids’ yearly spring break. The adults have just as much fun as the kids. Even though, we have a huge family to accommodate in one house for a week we are anticipating the family memories we are making. During our family vacation the ladies always plan a special day of the week to go shopping. Of course, a vacation isn’t a vacation unless we do some shopping and site seeing. We love going to flea markets and malls looking for some great gifts for our family and ourselves. While the women are enjoying an evening out shopping the men are home grilling and watching the kids have fun in the pool. To wrap up a long day of shopping, we treat ourselves to a very nice dinner. Last but not least, THEME PARKS!!! Our family begins the day with an early rise to begin our adventure to as many theme parks we can handle for a day. My personal favorite is Disney World. I love the fairytale atmosphere where everyone can be a kid again.......

My Favorite Memory

...My Favorite Memory ENG 101/102 January 30, 2013 My Favorite Memory 1 I have to say that my favorite memory has to be going on our family vacation to the Bahamas. We went on a five day cruise. There were eighteen of us in our group. Including my Daughters’ dad, co-mom & her little brother and sister. We drove down to Port Jax in Jacksonville, Florida to catch the boat. My mom, son Chance, my daughter Kayla and I went down early, so we could enjoy our drive. The trip down was great. Spending time with my family is always nice. We did some sight-seeing on the way down, we sang songs together like we were a quartet and tons of other things. After we arrived in Jacksonville, we checked into our hotel. We were there a few hours before everyone else arrived. When they all got settled in, all eighteen of us met up for dinner. This was a great time to celebrate our big family vacation. The group included nine adults and nine children. Ranging in age from almost two to sixteen. The next day we loaded all of our things up and headed to Port Jax. There we so many people and long lines. Customs was a little stressful, but we all made it through save and sound. After taking pictures, we finally got to board the ship. It was amazing! It was like a floating city. With all of the shops, restaurants, bars & nightclubs. Our luggage was......

My Favorite Palce

...2006081024 Jonathan Yu My Favorite Place I am not a Canadian. I am a Korean who lives in Korea my almost entire life. When it comes to my favorite place, there are a lot of good place to visit in Korea and I went there many times. However, my favorite place is in Canada. Last year I made up my mind to go to Canada not only to experience different cultures, but to study how to speak English well. Calgary in Canada is my favorite place because of some characteristic : A tourist attraction, friend, food. Even though I went to Calgary through working holiday program visa to work and study English, many tourist attractions tempted me into enjoying them. The Calgary Stampede which is the biggest festival in Canada is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary. As soon as I got to the festival, there were a lot of people from other countries. It looked like vehicles were bumper to bumper. Also, delicious hot dogs was tempting me to buy them, giving off attractive smell. In the middle of the festival were horrible rides and rodeo event in which cowboys show different skills, including riding wild horses, catching cattle with ropes and a thrilling race. When I went into Calgary’s downtown, I could easily find a big tower, the Calgary Tower. The Calgary tower is the tallest structure in Calgary. When I arrived at the top floor of the Calgary tower, bright sunshine welcomed me with smile and the tower gave me a scenic view of downtown through a wide window....

...down. There was nothing else to do, so Alice soon began talking again. 'Dinah'll miss me very much tonight, I should think!' (Dinah was the cat.) 'I hope they'll remember her milk at tea-time. Dinah my dear! I wish you were down here with me! There are no mice in the air, I'm afraid, but you might catch a bat, and that's very like a mouse, you know. But do cats eat bats, I wonder?' And here Alice began to get rather sleepy, and went on saying to herself, in a dreamy sort of way, 'Do cats eat bats? Do cats eat bats?' and sometimes, 'Do bats eat cats?' for, you see, as she couldn't answer either question, it didn't much matter which way she put it. She felt that she was going to sleep, and had just begun to dream that she was walking hand in hand with Dinah, and saying to her very earnestly, 'Now, Dinah, tell me the truth: did you ever eat a bat?' when suddenly, thump! thump! down she came upon a heap of sticks and dry leaves, and the fall was over. Alice was not a bit hurt, and she jumped up on to her feet in a moment: she looked up, but it was all dark overhead; before her was another long passage, and the White Rabbit was still in sight, hurrying down it. There was not a moment to be lost: away went Alice like the wind, and was just in time to hear it say, as it turned a corner, 'Oh my ears, how late it's getting!' She was close behind it when she turned the corner, but the Rabbit was no longer to be seen: she found herself in a long, low hall, which was lit up by a row of......

My Favorite Place on Campus

...Mr. Stephens Essay 1 September 9, 2013 My Favorite Place on Campus As I sit under the pavilion, I begin to recognize and appreciate how relaxing and refreshing the atmosphere around me truly is. Whether your purpose is to study, have fun or relax, the pavilion is the perfect place to do it. Many students agree that the best place on campus to study is under the pavilion. Other students say that they have had the most memorable experiences of their lives there. One of my absolute favorite places to study and do homework is underneath the pavilion. There, students will find themselves feeling peaceful and tranquil. When the birds and crickets chirp there is a soft and calming noise that echoes throughout the pavilion making one feel relaxed and serene. At times, studying can be extremely stressful, but with the wind blowing just right and the sounds of nature buzzing in my ear, I feel a sudden sense of peace. Focusing on schoolwork for long periods of time is a challenge for some students, but being under the pavilion helps most students unwind and focus on your goals. Students come to the pavilion on a regular basis, whether to play games or to simply have a conversation. It is a great place to gather with other people and to get to know fellow classmates a little bit better. Many of the relationships that form around OC will last a lifetime, and I can personally say that many of these connections and memories originate from under the pavilion’s roof.......

My Favorite Place

...The Musketeer in Me—Vikas One fundamental rule of reincarnation is that you do not know your past life. Well, it seems as though I broke that rule. In fact, I am absolutely certain that my past reincarnation was none other than d’Artagnan, the fourth musketeer. Knowing that is a gift. It makes the arduous process of describing the entirety of my personality in 500 words or less, possible. I can simply toss Alexandre Dumas’ biographical recount of my past life and say, “That’s me,” and those two words would mean everything. They make me that noble and heroic Gasconian that set out to Paris with nothing more than a yellow, hairless pony and a dream of grandeur. Alas, times have changed. The Musketeers, dueling, and horses, they have all become relics of the past. A new era and new circumstances bring a different life. Now, I am a first generation, 17-year-old American living in Jersey. My yellow, hairless horse is an old, squeaky Toyota Camry: its modern equivalent. My stunning silver-gilded rapier and armour have been replaced by a BIC pen and legal pad. However, all those changes are superficial. Inside, I still dream of the same grandeur. I dream, with every fiber of my body, that one day I will become a Newtonian giant holding a Nobel Prize. That one day I will support the innovation and ingenuity that fuels our evolving world. The only challenge is that there are millions of people that share the same dream as me, so what makes me different? Well, even if......

My Favorite Place

...My Favorite Place Gatlinburg, Tennessee is my favorite place to be for many reasons. In the city there are many small stores and different restaurants to choose from. There is never a boring moment at any time of the day. Every time I visit Gatlinburg I always have an awesome and eventful time. My main favorite place in Tennessee is my grandma’s house. My grandma has always kept many farm and house animals. In the backyard there is an old gray barn with white doors, four windows, and the paint is slowly peeling away on the outside. The barn contains a few pigs, cows, and chickens. She always has had a dog inside the house, currently a caramel colored Boxer named Sammy. About a mile from each side of her house are two big farms. One farm grows different crops such as hay and corn. The other farm has many cows roaming around inside of a fenced area while grazing on hay. There is also an oval shaped pond in her backyard. After a long day I always swim in the pond and in the middle of it there is a huge navy blue raft I swim to and sit on for a while. The pond also stocked with fish so it’s fun to go fishing in too. I love visiting my grandma during the summer because it is very peaceful and eventful. Another reason I enjoy being in Tennessee is the extremely beautiful weather that it has. There are consistent hot and sunny temperatures. In the summer it is usually around 80-100+ degrees outside. During this time I’m never occupied in the house at all and I’m pretty much......

Favorite Place as a Child

...Eugenia Flores Professor Gimaraes English 1A February 10, 2014 Most important place that you enjoy as a child Everything changes, but memories lasts. As a child I also had my favorite place and was my home, the home that I left behind when we moved to this country. My home is located in El Salvador a peaceful quiet place where every afternoon at 4 pm was all noise because of my sisters and I and other kids from our neighborhood. The house was white and burgundy, it had two windows one on each side, the house looked like a face to me, because the windows were the eyes and in the center the door which to me was the mouth of the house. Even though I no longer live there I miss the backyard, it is small but we owned a small garden with red roses and violets, there is the place where I used to play along with dolls and sisters. Also I miss my bedroom which I called our heaven because is the place where my sisters and I shared happiness, tears, and even secrets. I miss going to the park in front of our house, we will always see a grown man sitting on a bench. Whenever we went to the park we would played as much until night came. Most of my memories were created in that house and neighborhood. Whenever I need to calm down my minds travels back to the house I lived as a child. The house with the small garden, our garden was located in the back of our house a garden that was composed with red roses their ordor was fresh as can feel the sweatness of the rose, the sweatness......

The Furture of My Favorite Technology

...The Future of my Favorite Technology Each generation lives in a changing world, and along with change comes innovation. There are everyday conveniences that I take for granted, yet some of them have only been commonplace for the last 15 to 20 years. Most of them were not even dreamed of when my Mother was young. She remembers when they got their first television and I cannot imagine a world without television. I am sure when my daughter gets older; she will have only faint memories of blue-ray discs and i-phones, because something better will have come along by then. As the saying goes, “change is good”, as I always say, “change is inevitable, but not necessarily good”; however, the technological advances of the last 20 years have certainly made my life different from the last generation. What will the future bring next in the world of technology? In an article I read in Reader’s Digest recently, they asked people living in the United States what they would give up: television, cell phone, or the internet. The results showed that 49% would give up television, but if all the people polled had been over 45 years of age they would have chosen the cell phone. These are three pieces of technology that I use every day. I have had a cell phone for the last sixteen years and I do not know what I did before I had one. I could not imagine letting my daughter out of the house without hers. What did parents do before cell phones? As for the television technology, I like the......

...understood by securing information from the sample that was chosen. • De Vos (1998:191) indicated that (convenience) sampling could be regarded as being a rational choice in cases where it was impossible to identify all the members of a population. In this survey it was impossible to predict which women would request TOPs in Gert Sibande District during August and September 2003. Although the population of women who underwent TOPs during these two months could have been determined retrospectively, drawing a random sample and tracing the women for interviews would have been difficult, if not impossible. It might have been impossible to trace many of the TOP clients once they had left the hospital, because they might have relocated to different places. Many of them might not have granted interviews once they had left the hospital as their families and friends might have been unaware of their TOPs. As the researcher knew that many women obtained TOP services without confiding in any other people, the researcher regarded it to be in the interest of these women to conduct the interviews while they were in hospital rather than to attempt to trace them subsequent to their discharge from the hospital. 3.6 DATA COLLECTION Polit and Hungler (1999:267) define data as information obtained in a course of a study. In this study data was collected by using structured interview schedules. A structured interview schedule was used in order to capture data relevant to the study’s objectives......

My Favorite Resturant

...Professor Graham Engl 1101 TR 5:00-6:15 7 February 2013 My Favorite Restaurant As a child, I wasn’t fond of eating out. During the early 1960s, where racial segregation was still Prevalent in the south and spending time in public places presented a high challenge for African- Americans. Severely hampered by socioeconomic barriers, our choices for leisure, recreation, and entertainment was limited, particularly in restaurants. Every time we went anywhere, something would happen to illustrate the fact that we were not welcomed, but for a little place called Helen’s 2 Spot. I loved the place and this made my parents love it too. The place seemed so magical and fascinating to me then, when I was still an elementary school kid, and surprisingly, the place still very much fascinates me today. Just recently, when I went back to my hometown of Florence, S.C. for Thanksgiving, I was surprised to find out that the place still operated, and in fact, was run by the same family. Apart from the house in which I grew up, Helen’s 2 Spot is probably the dearest little place to me in town. What is so special about this place? It’s hard to answer in just a few words. First of all, Helen’s, as we all like to call it, is a small cozy house in the outskirts, with not one indication, even a sign, that would tell you from its outer appearance that would tell you that it is a restaurant. This is what probably earned my love in the first place; this and the people who worked, and......

My Favorite Recipe

...Terry Harris ACO332561 EN 130 Composition II Lesson 4 Writing a developed process analysis How to prepare my favorite dish I have always been someone who enjoys good food, but very particular about what I eat. So for that reason only I have become somewhat of a chef. I love to entertain and have family and friends over to test new recipes. One recipe I debut have become a family favorite and have to bring it to every family gathering. I received this recipe from one of my coworkers when I was looking for something different to do with cabbage, which I love. She told me that her family loves this recipe and its super simple to prepare. It’s called Runza, similar to a calzone, without the red sauce. To get started you will want to make sure you have all your ingredients close to you. This is what you will need. When I make this recipe I rarely measure anything out. It’s all to taste. I’ll start with the most important ingredients first, One head of cabbage, one pound of ground turkey or ground beef ( which ever you prefer), one green and red bell pepper, mozzarella cheese, one large onion, garlic cloves. You will use one teaspoon of each of these spices: salt, pepper, red pepper, red curry, Italian seasoning and chili powder to give it a little kick. I usually would make my own bread recipe but for time saving measures I just use an already made pie crust. I would get two just in case you will need to double wrap. Lastly you will need, as Rachel Ray would say,......

Favorite Place

...To feel safe from the evils of the world, in my childhood, I would go into the backyard and enjoy the beauty of the green grass. When the everyday routine of childhood would get boring to me I would visit the insects of the backyard, where a curious attraction was sure to last. The backyard at times seemed to be quiet and devoid of life,but soon friends would gather and a game would ensue causing the backyard to generate life. When uncertainty of life created fear in my mind I would cling to the love of my favorite thing I owned, the backyard, where there was never a question of it generating hateful strife. On cold days when you could see your breath or hot days when the dress attire was as little as possible there would always be the backyard welcoming me for a visit. I could escape to the backyard and monitor the sky day or night and while singing or eating, but unlike other yards there was always a place for me to stand or sit. When fear and depression made me scared or worry I could always run to the backyard and look up at the peaceful and soothing heavens while laying back on my hair. When my mother would sometimes temper my ugly anger with punishment the visions of me in my favorite place, the backyard, soon would clear my despair. On days of boring subjects at school and when the time seemed to stand still or days where cartoons did not feel me up with joy I knew the backyard would be waiting for me, full of life to explore. In the backyard, I would experience...

Diversity brings out the different qualities in each individual which makes us interesting? We need to base what we think about someone by their hidden characteristics and not their visual, otherwise we are judging them unfairly. The way you look or the way you were raised is your visual characteristics and this is not the most important. However this is what most people base their opinions on. If you would get to know ones hidden characteristics along with their visual we could understand a person more in their diversity.

My Favorite Place

...April 17,2012 My Favorite Place Through out the whole world, there are plenty of places where people love to go. Some may be a certain area, a store, a home, or even a different country. One place can hold special values to one person. Whether it’s a memory or memories, a feeling, or even just being in the environment. All of it leads up to being a persons “favorite place”. Everyone has a favorite place in their home, a place where he or she can be him or herself. Somewhere you can find peace and harmony. For some it's a quiet place, for others it's a hustling, bustling, full of people and movement place. But all of these places have one thing in common; they are places where you'd run to in times of both joy and stress. There is one place to me that makes me feel like I am the only one in the world. I chose this place because its stress free. It’s the only place in my house where I can be myself. I don’t have to worry about what others have to say. I can lay back and relax on my bed. A lot of times I just lay down and close my eyes and daydream about places I'd like to see or think about things that make me happy. One thing I do not do is think about things I need to get done or anything that makes me feel stressed because then I’ll never feel relaxed. I usually try to stay away from these kinds of thoughts and it usually works out well. Being able to watch whatever I please on my own television. Even playing my Xbox 360, without having to share with my brothers.......
