For the next 5 days was my test trials. It started at the same pace I ended with the conditional trial. I was able to complete everything on my to do list for Tuesday (the day before thanksgiving break start), but it went downhill as the break started to almost not doing the important tasks. However, I was able to get back on track by Saturday. Even though I did missed many of the assignments I didn’t use the “buy my siblings food” punishment at the end of the weekend, but did use “time-out technology” which was an immediate punisher and was helpful.
As fees have dropped or, in some cases, eliminated, you no longer have to worry about the old two percent rule of thumb. Because you are not paying any fees up front to refinance your home, or are paying very little in the way of fees, you have nothing to lose by refinancing, except a higher interest rate. Even dropping your rate a few points can have a dramatic effect on your monthly mortgage payment. If you are paying eight percent interest you should take a look at some of the new rates being offered by different lenders. You may end up saving yourself quite a bit of money in your monthly mortgage payment that will be effective immediately.
Much like junk food, on the outside, I maintained a... ... middle of paper ... ...d making sure I took at least an hour break between the hours of 2-5, that way I can have dinner. I started waking up early to make myself breakfast to eat before a shift. I simply started eating the foods that I enjoyed, and because of that, I didn 't mind eating these foods. I felt like a full person again. I took more time off of work to make sure I had rest days where I could make myself better meals and time to relax.
I look forward to going there every summer because there at the ocean I feel at home. It is a place where I can forget every stress in my life and be totally at peace. It is a place where my family can spend time together, not like at home where we all have activities and places to be. The Outer Banks is not a beach where the ocean is forgotten; there is no partying and no boardwalks, nothing but nature to fill your days there. The beach is not crowded to the point where it is hard to even walk to the beach ,and looking for shells is not even an option.
Once the dolphins are gone, I gently squeeze the throttle and head back to the docks. With a final look back, a see the sun’s reflection off of the glassy smooth water as the ripples of my wake break the surface behind. I think about what a wonderful experience this day has been. Approaching the boat trailer, I realize how physically tired I am from the constant rush of adrenaline brought by my adventures. I have the memories of the exciting jumps of the waves and the vivid pictures in my mind of the graceful dolphins swimming in the sunset.
They look at the sea all day. As long as it takes to pass Aship keeps raising its hull; The wetter ground like glass Reflects a standing gull. The land may vary more; But wherever the truth may be--- The water comes ashore, And the people look at the sea. They cannot look out far. They cannot look in deep.
Instead, the men are forced to take the boat further out to sea, where the waves are not quite as big and dangerous. They spend the night in the lifeboat and take turns rowing and then resting. In the morning, the men are weak and exhausted. The captain decides that they must try to take the lifeboat as close to shore as possible and then be ready to swim when the surf inevitably turns the boat over and throws the men into the cold sea. As they get closer to land a big wave comes and all the men are thrown into the sea.
It allows me to breathe and escape the stress that the day brings, as I look at the glittering sea for miles until it fades into the golden horizon. On these days, I just sit for hours, taking it all in, watching life pass by. Tonight is one of those days. Once again, my dad is going out to sea. This time, he is on “The Voyager”, the latest ship to set off in our harbor.
In the novels that Ernest Hemingway writes, he uses metaphors to reflect his life experiences and opinions. The ocean in The Old Man and the Sea is a metaphor, which represents Hemingway's personel view of life. Hemingway believes that in life everyone must find their own niche and uses the metaphor of the ocean and the boats on it to demonstrate this. ...most of the boats were silent except for the dip of the oars. They spread apart after they were out of the mouth of the harbour and each one headed for the part of the ocean where he hoped to find fish.
Until the age of five, my life was not always this way. This was the time in my life where I enjoyed being in the ocean. On one fateful day, at Venice beach, the ocean tide took me under. My family and onlookers could not break me free from the tide, and I almost drowned. This day was the catalyst to my severe phobia of the sea.
