Every time when I passed by a frozen lake, I could usually remind an amusing thing that happened in my childhood. Each time I told this story to my friends, they always couldn’t stop laughing. This thing happened in winter in my hometown when I was 6 years old. After that happened, I was more aware of my surroundings.
A gelid winter almost gone, but the weather was still cold. I went to a park with my friends which is extremely huge and magnificent. It includes a small mountain, a carnie and a small lake where people can row during the summer. First, we climbed the mountain and enjoyed the beautiful view when we stood on the top of the hill. What made me so happy is that I can see the whole city after I climbed the mountain. I can observe this city in a different angle, and I really like this kind of feeling. After we stood for a long time, one of my friend asked “Where are we going next?” Another guy said “Why don’t we go to the lake?” Then a rummy journey began.

- “The Unforgettable Waltz” My Papa’s Waltz is a powerful poem written by Theodore Roethke. The title of the poem set my expectations on a poem about someone dancing with their father.

- Frozen Fritz, Iceman, Oetzi the Iceman or just Oetzi (so called after the Oetztal Alps, the place Fritz was found), whatever his name is, the ‘findings’ surrounding the mummy Fritz are occasionally so bizarre that I am always reminded of the wise sentence of Orson Welles: “Many would never speak with a full mouth, but do it with an empty head.” If they had found common objects next to the mummy, one would have given little thought to the death of the man from the ice.

In one of the many challenging activities, the cohort was split into different groups and each group was made to push an army truck down a road. We were given a break every 20 minutes, and I found it very satisfying to, even when on a ‘break’, encourage my peers and lead them through such a physically and mentally exhausting challenge. Other challenges involved us crawling through small, confined tunnels.... [tags: Engineering, Physics, Learning, Mathematics]
