Personal Narrative - My First Trip to America

- My First Trip to America It was about two years ago when I arrived in United States of America, and I still remember the day when I left my native country, Honduras. As I recall, one day previous to my departure, I visited my relatives who live in San Pedro Sula. They were all very happy for me to see me except my grandmother Isabel. She looked sad; even though she tried to smile at all times when I was talking to her, I knew that deep inside of her, her heart was broken because of my departure the next morning....   [tags: Personal Narrative]

Personal and Imaginative Writing - My Trip to Sacramento

- Personal and Imaginative Writing - My Trip to Sacramento The cool fresh air blowing past you was simply amazing in Sacramento. I had three weeks of pure excitement and luxury. My holiday started with a warm lively welcoming from my cousins, at the airport. The journey from San Francisco airport to Sacramento was horrendous. The traffic was furious and there were rages and people very inpatient blasting their horns like maniacs. The noise was deafening.

Change of Perspective after Meditiational Journey

- When people hear the word sustainable, most will instantly connect this with the “green” movement or being environmentally responsible. I have instead twisted the definition. To me, something that is sustainable is something that has the ability to endure anything that it goes through. Following this definition, what has consistently sustained me through my life has been my family. My family have not only supported me in whatever I am passionate about, but even now - with many miles in between us - their impact is clearly evident in my everyday activities....   [tags: three week trip account, personal reflections]

Graduation Speech : My Life

- Everyone has had a conflict with loved one’s, countless conflicts can be resolved while other’s turn into full on fights. My conflict had commenced during freshman year of high school with only my statement of desiring to visit Europe when I graduated; more specifically London and Paris. After all, my dad had traveled around the world with the military, my grandma voyages for fun, and even my mom had departed the U.S., so it was in my blood for the excitement of travel. However, Rob, my stepdad, hadn’t been on board with my proposal to go overseas, saying there was no way I’d be able to come up with the money and even if I did assemble the money I should put it towards college....   [tags: Money, Payment, Trip, English-language films]

Physics of Self Bailing Boats and How I Built One

- The Basic Principle behind a Self Bailing Boat Actually the idea is quite simple really, it consists of a floor above the hull with open drain plugs in the rear of the boat and above the water line. By this simple method as water comes in to the boat it will drain right out of the back. If too much weight is in the boat then water will simply come in through the drain holes. This is no worry to me because I can always just put some plugs in the drain holes when carrying a heavy load. I made the decision to build the aluminum skiff 17ft long and strong enough to hold an outboard motor with a mass of 141kg (approx....   [tags: physics boat boating ship]

Trip To Australia

- The thick burnt scent of roasted coffee tickled the tip of my nose, just seconds before the old faithful alarm blurted a distorted top-forty through its tiny top speaker. As I wiped away the grit from last night’s sleep, the stark white sunlight blinded me momentarily as I slung my arm along the top of the alarm, searching for an off button. While stretching my hands and feet to the four posts of my bed, my eyes opened after several watery blinks. Swinging my legs over the side of the bed, I crawled out of the comforter, edging awkwardly like a butterfly from a cocoon....   [tags: Personal Experience, Autobiography]

The Features Of Naturalism And Its Effects On The Behaviours Of The Characters

In addition I will help develop the story as I focus on existentialism as the supporting theme. But before I begin to explore the conflict in this story, man vs nature I will first begin by defining what I mean by nature borrowing a quote by Mr. Robert Huntington in 1916: Imagination penetrates below the surface and comprehends and brings to light the deeper forces and facts--the real controlling instincts of characters, the real motives for actions, and the relations of material things to those of the spiritual world and of Man to Nature and God Stephen Crane’s Th...   [tags: The Open Boat, Stephen Crane, Nature, Thought]

Out Board Propeller Dynamics

- Missing Figures In The fall of 2004 I purchased a boat and outboard. The company that built the boat also had the responsibility of mounting the out board. Unfortunately the company built the transom of the boat to high and this had a major effect on the boats performance. With the prop so close to the water’s surface the out board would ventilate ever time I tried to get the boat up on step. It would also ventilate on tight turns at high speeds. Unless I wanted to ship the boat back down to Seattle for modifications I would have to find a propeller that would operate effectively near the surface....   [tags: physics boat propeller]
