For a half hour, every school day, for a few months, I was really happy. A

friend and I would go to the drainpipe, and we would sit, talk, eat our lunches,

and listen to my walkman. It was the perfect place: It was quiet, beautiful, and

it was full of peace. It didn't matter whether it was cold or hot, somehow you

didn't feel anything sitting on that drainpipe. You would feel the wind on your

face, and it made your face cold, but inside, you felt warm and cozy, and you

almost felt like you couldn't be harmed. There was something magical about the

drainpipe. Maybe it was the fact that nobody was around except the two of us,

and we were tiny compared to the long grass surrounding us. Then again, it could

just been the freedom of knowing that we were listening to the walkman that was

banned from school, and we weren't getting caught. What ever it was, it doesn't

matter because analyzing something takes away the feeling it gives when you

think about it. It was just a great place, and it made me happy, and I don't

know why. That makes it better in a way, just knowing that it had that power.

     Everyday, I would meet with a friend at the drain-pipe. That is until a

teacher found us and told us that because we didn't have any adult supervision,

we couldn't eat there anymore. It felt terrible. I wanted to stay there. I had

always thought that adult supervision was outdated by the time we were this old.

We had come to this place to get away from adults and all the other P.C. people

in this world, and now we had to join them again. At lunch time, I wander now,

using the tape player in any open classroom and get into screaming matches with

people, it's all just little kid fun anyway. Lunchtime isn't the same anymore. I

wish the teacher had never found us.

     Even to this day, I go to the drainpipe.

Descriptive Essay : ' Grandma '

- Slightly mournful, soft coos floated into the quiet bedroom; dove song borne along by the same gentle breeze which ruffled the white eyelet curtains. The aroma of frying bacon and homemade biscuits baking delighted my nose, overpowering my fleeting desire to stay snuggled in my cozy bed. I dressed quickly in the dim early morning light, I knew I could not appear at Grandma’s huge farm table in my pajamas. I joined my two brothers, Randy and Roger, along with my Grandpa at the chipped, white painted table....   [tags: Family, Grandparent, English-language films]

A Torrential Downpour in the South Essay

- What causes fascination. Perhaps it is our inherent curiosity of the unknown. Why then, do we often marvel at the most mundane of phenomena. Wherein lies the secret to this sensation of phenomenal wonder - the ability to perceive the ordinary with a unique sensual acuity. I cannot claim to have this aforementioned acuity, but I have endeavored on many occasions to hunt for the intriguing in what is plain - to experience ‘phenomenal wonder’. There are experiences which do not require acuity to fascinate us - the mystical....   [tags: Descriptive Essay, Descriptive Writing]

Descriptive Essay: A Beautiful Place

- I think we all have a beautiful place in our mind. I have a wonderful place that made me happy a lot of times, years ago. But sometimes I think that I am the only person who likes this place and I'm asking myself if this place will be as beautiful as I thought when I will go back to visit it again. Perhaps I made it beautiful in my mind. This place is meaningful to me because it is part of the county I loved, is part of the county where I grew up and is part of my childhood. This place is in the country in an old region named Appalachia, a small piece of the Appalachian Mountains, in a town named Pikeville....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Example]

Descriptive Essay: A Healing Place

- In my hometown, there is not much to do on any night of the week, so many nights I found myself walking around town with my friends. After walking an hour of so we would often become tired and need a rest. The swing along the Mississippi River was always a great resting spot. The metal swing fits up to four people and has a great view of the Lock and Dam. Although the swing was cold when we first sat down, it would soon warm up and sometimes we would end up staying there for hours just talking....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Examples]

Descriptive Essay: Lou's Place

- It is years later and I can still remember my first visit to Lou's Cafe. Stopping in to see if anyone could tell us where to locate the turn we had missed, my dad and I received a large dose of culture shock.

Miss Lou has been in business at that location since 1954. Even though the place looks a little squalid, it is not for lack of care; in fact, Lou is proud of how clean she keeps her place....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Example]

Descriptive Essay: Grandpa's Place

- Grandpa's Place I know to take one last breath of fresh, clean air before I open the front screen door and then the faded, chipped white wood door. I walk in, and the blend of the aroma of apples and old people suffocates me. As I walk in, the same two-year old cat food is right where it has been for the last six months: in front of the front door on the cold faded tile floor. The cat disappeared four months ago, but I guess there is still hope that he will come back one day. I approach the sliding wooden door to enter the front living room and see some bird feed on the floor that must have been spilled the previous week along with a stack of news papers....   [tags: Descriptive Essays, Observation Essay]

There seems to be a lot of pressure put on regular everyday average Americans, to celebrate, share the good will and get that perfect gift for that special some one in your life. Possibly your lover, mother or brother. Each year the same trend seems to be followed. September and October roll around and the season begins to change.

Essay about The Waffle House

- The Waffle House   It's late one Friday night. You, accompanied by a select group of your closest friends, drive down the interstate, wanting desperately to be at home in the warmth of your bed. Suddenly, the lot of us sees the sign. Like a beacon it is, summoning us to it like proverbial moths to a flame. Forgetting about the need for sleep, we turn onto the off ramp, a string of drool dripping down and off of your chin. "Waffle House," we say with a gleam in our eyes, "we have arrived." What follows will be one of the most important events of our adult lives: a tireless ritual continuing into infinity all across the nation's good expanse....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Examples, Observation]

Christmas Essay

- A few days before Christmas, Oxford street is swarming with last minute shoppers, laden with parcels and bags. Christmas is the highlight for many people, especially little childen, from as tall as your ankle to as tall as your knee. Small todlers were moaning and disappearing into the clothes racks like magicians disappearing in a puff of smoke entertaining the gullible audiences. Families and friends gradually emerge from clogged buses and congested trains, tired, exhausted and hungry even at this very early stage, as if they had spent the whole night awake, like a distressed parent waiting for their child to arrive home from a party but has still not arrived,...   [tags: Narrative Essays, Descriptive Writing]

When things get to hard at home,

and I need to just escape, I make the excuse that I forgot a book at school and

I leave. I cross the soccer field, then the gym, sometimes stop at my locker to

put away my backpack, and I run to the drainpipe. I lay down in the grass, and

think about what ever is bothering me right now. I put my headphones in my ears

and blast the tape that is in my walkman. I'm transported.
