As they finish up their school the kids prepare for long lazy afternoons, swimming, and just being kids. They don’t need to worry about a paper that needs to be done or math homework.

While I certainly don’t want to leave out relaxing besides the beach, a summer break can give me experiences I couldn’t otherwise have such as practicing a new skill....   [tags: summer vacation, summer break] 419 words

Summer by David Updike - King Solomon wrote wisely, and later was wisely paraphrased by the folk band “The Byrds”, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven...” (Ecclesiastes 3:1,8).

Themes Depicted in the Play "Summer of the Seventeenth Doll" - "Summer Of The Seventeenth Doll" is a timeless play as it can be transposed to be as relevant today as when it was written. The play is definitely a tragi-comedy but more than the ideas raised in the statement the play is about change and the inability for some to deal with it, the battle between dream and reality and loyalty and mateship. It also serves as a social document of Australia in the 1950s.

Albert Camus': Summer in Algiers - Albert Camus': "Summer in Algiers" This early essay by Albert Camus presents an eloquent picture of his understanding of what it means to know. But in order for us to assimilate it, we must recognize that Camus is not celebrating a hedonic naturalism, nor engaging in an existential anti-intellectualism. Rather, his articulation of lucidity and the exemplification of it in the artistry of the essay itself presents us with a challenging concept of knowledge. I attempt to explicate this concept with the help of two images, one from the musical Hair and one from the movie The Pawnbroker, thus seeking to reinforce Camus' reliance upon image as the equivalent of idea....   [tags: Literature Papers]

Descriptive Essay: Our Summer Cabin - In my lifetime, I have been privileged to travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world. I have seen the rich fire of sunset over the Rocky Mountains and the brilliance of coral reefs in crystal blue Caribbean waters. No spot on earth, however, has yet surpassed the beauty of my childhood paradise, a place my family called Tamarack. Tamarack was a family camp and hunting lodge set deep in the heart of the Mountains. My earliest memories of it are fractured images of sights and sounds and smells--golden bars of sunlight through majestic oaks and elms, the ever-present smell of wood smoke and haunting echoes....   [tags: Observation Essay, Descriptive Essay] 2114 words

Mount Tambora and the Year Without a Summer - ... Pumice stones of up to 20cm then began to fall at 8 p.m. with ash between 9 and 10 p.m. Then violent winds blew toward Sanggar between 10 and 11 p.m. Possible pyroclastic flows that buried the village of Tambora could be attributed to the winds. A tsunami of 4 meters hit Sanggar a short time before 10 p.m., indicating a sudden entry of the pyroclastic flow into the sea. The explosions could be heard as far away as 1050 km and in many places produced concussions that resembled small earthquakes (Stothers, 1984)....   [tags: Environment, Volcano ]

Why Summer is my Favorite Season of the Year - My favorite season of the year is summer because of the warm weather, the school vacation, and the endless fun. I really enjoy the warm weather because it’s the perfect atmosphere to do outdoor activities. My favorite part about summer has to be the fact that school is closed for two months. During summer, you’re free to do whatever you want, not worrying about curfew or waking up early for school. Summer time is a great time to relax with friends and family by soaking up the sun at a beach or simply having dinner together....   [tags: Favorite Season, Descriptive] 524 words

Balanced School Year: Reduces Summer Learning Loss - ... To negate a loss of skills over the summer parents would need to ensure the type of learning their child engages in encompasses math, spelling and reading skills. A balanced school year would not only help alleviate summer learning loss in specific skills areas, it can also help boost a child’s academic self-concept; students who believe they are skilled at reading and math are more likely to have an overall positive self-concept (Vail, Zolner 376). On the Loyola University Chicago Child Law and Education Institute Forum, a review of research on the American education system and the link between the achievement gap and a long summer vacation shows an equivalence of one month academic loss, but adds that this could increase to upwards of three months for low income children (Miele 7)....   [tags: Education ]

Free College Admissions Essays: Summer Camp Entrepreneur - Summer Camp Entrepreneur The first wedding that I planned was in no way a traditional wedding. Ten eager little girls decorated the printed invitations with sequins, buttons, and markers. The same energetic hands prepared the wedding feast, consisting of bagged lunches, blintz soufflé, and of course a layer cake. On the big day I looked around with excitement. Again, I noticed something odd about this wedding. All the participants and guests appeared about four feet high.

Formal Critique of “Indian Summer Hudson River” - ... In continuing the analysis of Bierstadt’s painting, one must also explore the principles of art in his painting and what elements create them. The emphasis or focal point of Bierstadt’s “Indian Summer” is undoubtedly the sun. The sun is painted with such luminosity that it becomes the center of attention in the painting. The use of color and painting technique blurs the edges of the sun and achieves an almost hazy brilliance, as if the viewer is looking into the sun itself. What gives the painting its greatest sense of unity is color....   [tags: Art Analysis]

Excellently set on a secluded lake in the mountains in Korea , director Kim Ki-duk has created a classic love story with a religious twist with the movie Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, And Spring. The movie doesn’t have a lot of talking and characters. The title is used to show the growing up of a young boy and shows a few valuable lessons on the way. The old man and his student live on a floating monastery, away from all life and that is significant because it shows that you don’t need to be around people 24/7 to live life to the fullest....   [tags: essays research papers] 821 words
