“Well, we’ve got to do something to celebrate.” (25) What most people find fright in, Finny finds excitement, such as when he jumps from the tree and founds the Summer Suicide Society. “This is the most fun I’ve had in weeks. Who’s next?” (16) An example of Finny’s innocence is showed through blitzball, the game he created with no teams, therefore without any losers of winners, but it was loads of fun. (37-40) Though, with an innocence this perfect, there is bound to be corruption. Finny’s innocence was corroded by the jealousy and malice of his supposed best friend, Gene.
The lakes are large with not a lot of people around, which is nice and relaxing since some people are loud and obnoxious. The lakes are surrounded by tall trees, glittering beaches and old hiking bridges. My favorite part is the smell of the burning campfires and smoky food we have, and it is a great getaway from people. Camping is my favorite thing to do with my family, no matter when or where it may be. I get excited every time my dad tells my brother and me that we are going camping.
Fourth of July is a time where family comes together to enjoy great food and see great fireworks. Coming from Puerto Rico I didn’t know the meaning of Fourth of July, my family and I just knew what to plan out. It means so much more when knowing the history on it because this day means a lot to this country. Many Americans forget that we have so much freedom to live our lives they way we choose to, it’s a time where we remind each other that this is the land of the free. The very first Fourth of July experience I had was at my aunt’s house; she was the only one in the family that was living in the United States.
After successfully breaking a window with a screaming angel and having to run inside to make sure there was minimal damage, my aunt seized the fireworks, and cut short the celebration in fear for her home’s well being. I laughed to myself, glad that the day had ended without any serious injury and that everyone had fun. Regardless of the intolerant sun, the humid air, flaming gas cans and broken windows, it was a lovely day.
Because the whole town comes out for the parade, I have chatted and laughed with the people next to me who I don’t even know. The people in the parade are usually local families, members of the community, students from my school, and local businesses who work together to entertain the town and show us unity. When the American flag passes by, we all stand up respectfully and there is a very strong sense of patriotism. Even if we personally don’t have family members in the armed forces, we realize that the person next to us does and for that we are thankful and realize how bitter sweet this holiday can be for them. The BBQ at the end gives us all the chance to sit and eat together.
Usually people that were half our size and walked around by themselves. We liked to blow up people's letter boxes the most, usually just at random. Whenever any new kids came to our school, we used to tease and make fun of them, so they felt unwelcome and had no friends. Usually they left the school, we loved it when they did that. Anyway, back to the story... On Friday afternoon, just after school, we were all walking home talking about how much of a loser this new guy was.
We have thanksgiving together, and all of my family comes out here for the 4th of July and we have the best time. During the day we go out in the boat and things in the water and at night we eat a lot of food and shoot off tons of fireworks. Then we will sit around with everyone just chatting about anything and everything, catching up on what everyone has been doing. Sitting in the warmth of the wonderful summer evening. Then everyone heads home and there I am with my parents and maybe a few friends to watch some of the fireworks around the lake still going off, its peaceful and its family time that we all share together.

While Maggie was too distracted by laughs Glen was driving to a cliff near their town. “Hey babe where is that mixtape you gave me on our third date?” Maggie asked “Um, I have no clue; it’s in this car for sure. Just plug your iPhone into the auxiliary port.” “No, I wanted to see it again; I like what you wrote on it.” “Ugh, women always have to make things difficult.” Maggie shoots glen a death stare. “But I love you babe!” Glen says to try an save himself from an argument occurring. “... ... middle of paper ... ...to be great to see, I mean I got your back and all, but this will be the highlight of my month if not year!” Andrew says while laughing.
Just great. And now together, I and Derrick, spending our precious holiday on this blasted island that always give me the creeps. It would be fun spending it at Chicago with my parents if they hadn’t gone there to attend a serious business meeting. You can’t blame them, thought, this trip is very crucial, make one mistake and it would affect the whole company. Mr.Taboon, the owner of the only motel on this island, is very obliging and promise to take care of us while they were gone.
