2: Winter boots |
3: There was this one time in my life where i had to buy winter boots. It was in my first year of middle school and i was just beginning to care about how i looked. Well anyways i was shopping with my mom and she had found what she called "wonderful gentleman's boots." I ended up buying the boots to make my mother happy. My mom told me after we bought the boots that i had to where them to school. The boots were brown and sleek looking with fur on the top. The reason I didn't wan to to wear them was that they looked like girls boots. I knew that i would get made fun of for wearing them but i still wore them the next day.
4: I went to school the next day with the boots on my feet and while i was hanging out with my friends, a couple of them noticed my boots and they began to ridicule me. I felt embarrassed and upset. After that day i wore them for a couple of other occasions and then I never wore them again.
6: The Rope Swing ADventures
7: When I was younger I had never left my street by myself before. I would sometimes ride my bike around but I had never been at the end of my street. There is a field that goes down into a valley with a little stream and if you would go farther out through the maze of trees on the other side of the stream there is a road that lead near my elementary school. It was like a whole new world I had never seen before. The first time i went near there was when i was helping my father and his worker dump leaves from my yard. I was fascinated by the depth i had never knew was woods down there before that time. A time that i remember being a good day where i had an adventure was when i went in the woods with a couple of my friends.
8: Back when this happened it was like a jungle and there was no open field.In order to enter we had to go to the end of my street take a right go about two houses down and then take a left we then had to walk down road for about twenty feet and then enter through a little path through all the brush and tall weeds that were taller than us. We were exploring and came across a swing. This swing was on the other side of a hill almost completely hidden by trees it was also behind somebody's house. The swing was made from telephone cables and a board.When i first went on it it was amazing. It was low on the ground but while in the air it seemed higher than the swings at the amusement parks.
9: It was so cool being able to over look the the river and the surrounding area. My two friends and I took turns pushing each other each time trying to see who could get higher.There was only three cables connected to the board that was the seat.The fourth cable had broken off from the wood which had looked like it had been through harsh weather. We called this cable the Tarzan swing we would hold on really tight back up and launch into the air. The feeling was like flying.
10: Uncle chuck
11: My uncle Chuck is really my cousin and also my dads cousin. My uncle Chuck is the one in my life who is an adult and acts like a kid. He is in his fifty's or sixty's. A way that I find my uncle chuck to be like a kid is he cant stay in the same spot to long. When ever he would come over he sits down and goes outside repeatedly. Also he has many guns, fishing poles and other hunting equipment. He is shorter than me and is in shape, He also wears gold chains. My uncle owns a motor cycle and a truck.
12: When he would visit he would also leave in his truck and come back repeatedly. My uncle is also social he is always outside talking with my neighbors.
14: swing in the woods
15: It was the summer of 2009 and i had found a wonderful place it was all mine. It was a swing entirely made telephone cables attached to a wooded board It was camouflaged by pricker bushes and trees so from almost any distance it looks invisible. It was on a slanted dirt hill distanced from behind a house and surrounded by woods. I began to go there when I was feeling down. During the summer after lunch when I would get bored or just felt like going on an adventure. It was a very peaceful and quit place
16: I would go for the next couple of years.
18: prince charming
19: There are many fairy tale characters but not many positive male characters. A male character that seems positive would be prince charming. I realistically wouldn't want to be him but if i had to choose one I would pick him because he is usually the guy who saves the day. He seems as if he is the cool guy that is likable and can get girls. As described in the fairy tales and movies prince charming usually seems as if he is "perfect". I would want that trait so that i could always finish my work on time and be able to socialize fluently.
