Or like someone it’s an amazing feeling believe me there is
This one amazing girl that I just constantly can’t get my mind off of her like I adore her to much I won’t say no name but there is a story behind this whole thing but if only I could remember the beginning oh well…let’s start with how I met her so it all started in high school sophomore year 2013 I went to a school called Blu Ford High School where everything at that school wasn’t what you call paradise I mean everyone was happy and excited that they get to see their friends and stuff but I wasn’t really interested in all that stuff I was restraining myself from caring about school and education high school was like a child’s playground to me but that all change in a matter of seconds after seeing that one person a girl I adore honestly I didn’t know how to keep my composure because she was really amazing I mean she was gorgeous in every type of way she was a light-skinned girl with nice hair, great personality, and etc. but truth be told we started out not being friends because I didn’t know her, and I didn’t really want to make the effort on doing so but one day she was sitting outside on the lunch table with her friends, the same table that I was sitting on but we made no eye contact no communication whatsoever it was just awkward just being there and not saying anything especially since I has a crush on her or whatever but it’s totally fine but anyways during that awkward silence I decide to talk to her by saying “Hey, how you doing? What’s your name?”. As she proceeds to give me her name that’s when I started having a decent conversation with her it wasn’t bad cause she told me what high school she came from because this was her first year coming to Blu Ford High School so she was new to this school and I asked…...

...I. Introduction There is always a time for everything, “1For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. 2A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to harvest. 3A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-3) Throughout the ages and for the next generation to come, there is only one thing constant in our lives and that binds mankind together, and that is facing the great inevitable, which is death. Death is something we all must face -- no escaping techniques, no meditation rituals, and no amount of money can avoid it. Death is not a right, it is the end of all rights and a fate that none of us can escape. It is the great equalizer. The finality of death and not knowing the inevitable would ultimately give a person a scare for their life. But what happens when death can no longer be a natural occurrence? What happens when we are given the choice to manipulate and control the death of a person? What happens when a person interferes with the laws of nature and decides for himself/herself what time a person may die, but saying he/she had the best interest of the person? What happens to these situations then? Is it justifiable to end the life of a person? i. Background The ultimate right we have as human beings is the right-to-life, an inalienable right that can never be taken away, not even by the person who possesses it. It is similar to the fact that our right to......

The Man Who Loved Flowers

...Stephen King’s short story, The Man Who Loved Flowers, manages to craftily
blur the lines between love and insanity. King vividly describes New York City as a beautiful, vibrant place on that particular Spring afternoon. The only point in the beginning of the story where things don’t seem wonderful is where the radio is playing as the man buys his flowers. The news describes the problems of the world (including the hammer murderer on the loose), but it’s brushed off because the world seems bright at that moment. At the story’s climax, the imagery is dark and the sounds described are designed to cause the reader to imagine pure cacophony. Tomcats “making alien love” and a screaming woman are certainly not pleasant sounds. The most important fears expressed in The Man Who Loved Flowers are the fear of strangers (the unknown) and the fear of love (the fear of loss).

The story takes place on a beautiful afternoon in May of 1963. Everything looks positively radiant with Summer coming quickly. Everyone smiles when they see the man in the gray suit because he is so obviously in love. The young man approaches an older gentleman who is selling flowers and buys the most expensive spill of tea roses. As the afternoon turns to evening, he makes his way to Norma’s. When he sees her his heart skips a beat. “It’s always a sweet shock to see her.” When he goes to her she pulls away. She tells him that he’s mistaken and her name is not Norma. We are then presented with the true identity of......

I Once Loved a Soldier

...I ONCE LOVED A SOLDIER (mypinkrosary_clvt) Do you know what I've done the moment I've lost you? Do you know what I've said the day you went away? Without words slithered from my lips, my tears just fell and my heart was broken ..and it all started the time I fell in love with a soldier..   An immense question faced me off. What came about? You dropped me off and left me empty. You ripped my heart into pieces. Implicit reasons gave me puzzles. I’m thinking then that it took you a tough time to finally say what you didn't want me to hear. So I made things easy for you. With a heavy heart, I let go and moved on. Undeniably, two of the hardest things I've done to someone I truly love. Now, I'm used to the fact that we're not together anymore, and that maybe we won't be. Eventually, everything will be a part of my past. But beyond doubt, you left a fossil in my heart. Because of you, I've learned a lot or I've been hurt too much. I can't help but shield my heart to love again. I often wonder if it is my way to keep distance from someone because true intimacy is just too bloodcurdling for me now. So I allow myself to let go of the things I fear to lose. So that when he’s gone, I won't feel not the pain of losing him, but the pain of losing myself without him again. Still, I believe that sometimes, the best relationships take place by accidents. Who knows? It's with a soldier again. What learning I've hauled out from the love I once had is that you really need to trust......

Choosing Between a Skilled Nursing Facility or Home Health Care for Your Elderly Loved Ones

...Choosing between a Skilled Nursing Facility Or Home Health Care for your Elderly Loved Ones Kelly M. Skawienski University of Phoenix While a facility, like a nursing home, is a good option for extreme care of the elderly, most cases show that living in their own homes, surrounded by familiar people and things can promote better health and wellness. While working in the health care field I have worked in both fields; a Skilled Nursing Facility and Home Health Care. Some important points to consider in choosing which option is best for you or your loved one are the cost; how much is it going to cost for each of these two options, services provided; what help will you be receiving for your money, flexibility and freedom of accessibility; having friends and family visit and being able to travel, go for a walk, and last is the comfort of the client or patient would they do better in a sterile environment or in their own home. The cost of a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) as most already know can be expensive. The average cost is more than $50,000.00 a year and climbing, and it will vary widely depending on where you live (Long Term Care, 2012). Your employee health insurance does not pay for a SNF, so about one third of the residents pay from their own funds. This can eat away at their savings very quickly, most people run out of funds after six months. Five percent of people have purchased long term care insurance which will cover the cost of a SNF......

To Be Loved or Feared as a Leader?

...TO BE LOVED OR FEARED AS A LEADER? Leaders in fields ranging from military and politics to business and even education have been posed with the choice of instilling love or fear among their respective followers. Traits like warmth and trustworthiness of a leader instill love among followers and fear of a leader originates mostly from his strength and competence. Although there are numerous other traits in a leader, warmth and strength are the most influential. According to psychology, a major part of other people's perception about a person is determined by these two dimensions of personality (Cuddy, Kohut and Neffinger, 2013, p. 56). The dilemma of the choice between these two is inherently present in the nature of the two extremes i.e. either of the choices will make you fall at the opposing ends of the human emotional spectrum. It is interesting to note that the question of choosing between the two extremes is not a new one . Tracing this conundrum back to the sixteenth century takes us to the writings of Machiavelli. His political philosophy in 'The Prince' acknowledges the best leaders to command both fear and love. Having said that, Machiavelli recognizes the opposite polarity of the two emotions and maintains that since it is difficult to combine both in one person, it is better to be feared as a leader than to be loved (Machiavelli, 2003, p.53). Today, about five hundred years later, the Machiavellian concept of a feared leader is still quite rigorously......

Dyeing to Be Loved

...Dyeing to be loved! I met him at a mutual friend’s party. At first I thought ...”oh my Gosh, this has got to be the most beautiful man I have ever seen. Why on earth is he devoting all his attention to me when he could have anyone in this room?” The fact that he chose me to engage with that night made me feel like a princess. His words describing my beauty shook my soul and lifted my feet. I felt as though I was floating above myself, looking down on the man that I knew would change my life. I had no idea that allowing this kind and gentle man to sweep me off my feet would nearly cost me my life. The first year was amazing; he went out of his way to make me feel like the only woman that he could ever be with again. I was his angel, his savior, his muse! Every night was filled with overlapping compliments and loving embraces. My life was perfect, I had the man of my dreams, a promise of an upcoming wedding and talk of starting a family to make our lives complete. I was on cloud 9. I remember the first mean thing he ever said to me like it was yesterday. I never thought I would hear the words ugly or fat come out of his mouth especially when he was referring to me. I was crushed…I literally felt a piece of my heart break off into my chest. For what I am sure was only a second I couldn’t breathe, but to me it felt like an eternity. No way was the angel that God sent me intentionally stomping on my heart like this, it felt like a nightmare and I couldn’t wake......

The Man Who Loved Flowers

...The Man Who Loved Flowers The Man who loved flowers is short story about a young handsome man, who wants to surprise a girl named Norma by giving her some flowers. The story takes place in New York on a beautiful day in May 1963 where everything seems lovely, but it turns out that the young handsome man ends up killing a random girl, who he thinks is Norma, in a narrow lane in New York’s streets. The main character in The Man Who Loved Flowers is described as a handsome young in love. In the beginning of the story he seems like a guy whose life runs perfectly, he is suited up, he is in love and he just seems like a stand up guy “He was dressed in alight grey suit, the narrow tie pulled down a little, his top collar button undone. His hair was dark and cut short”. There is nothing suspicious about him. Stephen King tricks the reader into thinking that it is a perfect evening; maybe the young guy is going to propose to this Norma? “He reached into his coat pocket and touched something in there. For a moment his ace seemed puzzled, lonely, almost haunted, an then, as his hand left the pocket, it regained its former expression of eager expectation.” But when the young man finally meets this girl, who turns out not to be Norma, we find out that Norma has been dead for ten years. I believe that the young man ones has had a lover named Norma, who he thought was the only one but she died and he was forced to live on with that, but couldn’t accept it. Therefore he is now......

The Monkey Who Loved Chocolate

...the ordinary as boys go, because he didn’t like chocolate. No, not at all. Not even one little bit. And I must say, I’ve never met a boy like that. Not in my entire life. And the monkey was unusual because he absolutely adored chocolate – this particular monkey went absolutely bananas for it – and as you may guess – very few monkeys are mad about chocolate, if only because, they’ve never even tasted it. The boy was called Jim. And the monkey was called Theodore, or Theo for short. One day, Jim’s Aunty Judith took him to the zoo. Jim’s mother had told her that Jim didn’t like chocolate, but she didn’t believe that. “Poor little thing,” she said to herself. “His mum won’t buy him chocolate because she’s too mean. But I’ll buy him a nice lovely bar and give it to him while we are out.” And that’s what she did. Only it was true. Jim really didn’t like chocolate. “Oh thanks Aunty Judith,” he said when she gave it to him. “That’s really kind of you. I’ll just save it for later, if you don’t mind.” But he did like seeing all the animals in the zoo. The prowling bears weren’t at all cuddly – but they were super cool all the same. The giraffes had lovely soft noses. The snakes in the snake house made Jim’s blood run cold – but he liked being scared really – just a bit. And the monkeys – well everyone loves monkeys. They looked silly but intelligent all at the same time. And in particular, one was nicer than all the others. He came up to the bars of the cage and pressed his......

Loved Ones

...Losing Loved Ones Kyla Jones SW Death and Dying Oakland University Abstract Death is something I personally think about a lot. I have not experienced much loss, but the losses I have experienced have affected me enough to the point of thinking about why people die at random times of the day. I have had a total of five deaths of family and friends in my 20 years of life. They have all been within a few years of each other but the first death there was a larger gap in between until the next death. The first death I experience was my Grandma’s best friend Kim, then my Grandma’s Sister Carol, then my great great grandpa, then my father and last but not lease my friend who was like a younger brother to me. Some of these had a major impact on how I view death and how I am when death is a topic of concern for most people. At the age of 20 I can say I am not afraid of death because I have accepted that it will happen to anyone, and if it is your time to go then God believes it is your time to go. I look back and wished I handled myself a little different when it came to certain deaths, but once I experienced a death of someone really close to me that was the one that really made me question what is the point of living if we are going to die anyways? But if I experience another death soon, I believe I know how to deal with it head on and be able to help the other people who are affected by it as well. I am very thankful for having people surround me and explain to me more so......

A Loved One Lost

...A Loved One Lost It was a quiet summer night and I was just sitting in my room watching TV. My fan was blowing refreshing cool air on me and it helped relieve me from the heat of the summer. It was also a little annoying as it makes a whirring noise, but despite the sounds it was still very calm and relaxing. My mom was in our computer room playing on the computer just as usual. My dad was asleep in his bed at an early time as he usual. My brother was downstairs in his room and everything seemed just fine. However, there was something in the back of my mind that I was thinking about that kept me from being completely relaxed. Something that I just couldn’t help but think about that made me a little less than relaxed. My grandma was having a double bypass heart surgery and I was a little worried about her. My mom and dad had both assured me that everything was going to be fine, but I couldn’t help but worry a little bit. She was my grandma after all and I loved her and she loved me and I didn’t want anything to happen to her. All of a sudden I heard “ring, ring, ring” it was the phone. I didn’t think anything of it at first, but then I thought to myself how it was kind of an odd time for a phone call because it was a little late. Luckily my room is right next to our computer room, which is where my mom was. Also fortunate for me, the walls aren’t very thick and my mom has a loud voice so I could hear everything that she was saying. However, I didn’t know who she was......

I Loved My Mother

...I Loved My Mother By: Scott Daugherty It took me eighteen years to realize what an extraordinary influence my mother has been on my life. She's the kind of person who always has time for her two children (my sister and I). Growing up with such a strong role model, I developed many of her enthusiasms. I not only came to love the excitement of learning simply for the sake of knowing something new, but I also came to understand the idea of giving back to the community in exchange for a new sense of life, love, and spirit. My mother's enthusiasm for learning is most apparent when she was a nurse waiting to help everyone she can get better. I was nine years old I twisted my knee and popped out of place she took me home and fixed my knee since we didn’t have insurance. Every night for sixteen years, my older sister Patricia and I sat with my mother on her bed listening to her read out of her old medical books My life has been equally transformed by what she has shown me just two months after I moved out and in with my dad she died. At seventeen years old, I was supposed to be ready for her to pass away but nothing can prepare you for it. Even now over one year after her death, every time I think about her I start to cry. Everything that my mother has ever done has been overshadowed by the thought behind it. While the raw experiences I have had at home have been magnificent, I have learned to truly value them by watching my mother......
