A Walk Not to Remeber

...com/travel-gear/world-balance-contest/ http://sharedreviews.com/review/world-balance-white-rubber-shoes 2. Beach Walk * I was just surprised that these slippers are pretty comfy! Its "comfiness" is almost comparable to the ever famous (expensive) havianas. And it has pretty colors too. I bought the pink and green ones. For 129.75 pesos, its a great deal. Fits nicely too. I'm not in anyway connected to this company ha. Natuwa lang ako talaga.  Round One: Availability * The first thing I did in my quest was to look for a pair of Spartans. I went to SM Southmall and after asking a saleslady, I was told that Spartans the brand no longer existed. Apparently, Spartan merged with Beach Walk sometime back. I was then directed towards a single rack towards the edge of the shoe section filled with slippers of varying colors. Unlike the ubiquitous Havaianas which has a free standing store in every major mall, as well as big displays in Rustan's and various sporting goods stores, Beach Walk is not as easily accessible. It's probably available in all SM branches but you still have to search for it. I don't know if Beach Walk can still be found in wet markets though, as it used to be when I was young, but my dad bought his recent pair in the grocery. So if you're so inclined, you can grab a pair of Beach Walk together with the week's grocery requirement Round Two: Style * The available Beach Walk slippers were of the two - toned variety. I originally......

A Walk in the Woods

...PERSONAL: THE FOREST Personal: The Forest Susan Jones DeVry Univeristy PERSONAL: THE FOREST 2. Personal: The Forest “A walk in the woods” is a chapter in the book, Omnivore’s Dilema by Michael Pollan. This chapter reminds me of where I was raised in the back woods of Kentucky. Our property was attached to one of the largest forests in Eastern Kentucky, known as The Daniel Boone National Forest. This forest is beautiful in any direction that one can see. From the beautiful tall oaks, to the large pine trees and their needles covering the spongy forest floor. There are beautiful green ferns, leafy vegetation, thickets and rock cliffs. There are so many wonderful things to see and hear in this forest, which provide a natural home and shelter for many animals to live. My experiences and memories of the forest and hunting have lead me to have mixed feelings about hunting which will be examined in the following paragraphs. Omnivore’s Dilema has brought back memories from home, and yes that is the back woods where I grew up. In many ways, it is quite easy for me to relate to the chapters written about hunting by Mr. Pollan. Hunting is something my father and my brothers enjoyed doing together. It wasn’t as much as a sport to them it was a necessity. Actually it was our meat source for our daily meals. There were lots of different game to hunt; deer, rabbit...

Serendipity Walk

...Serendipity Walk A chance could be very clever now and again because it doesn’t appear too many at a time that’s why if there is one, I suggest, you grab it so close!  This is what I always learn from my everyday undertakings. Well, as we all coexist and live as a society together, it is of the essence that a code of demeanour is recognized to live harmoniously; to be able to make things proper, to do things in a right way, to show good influences to others, to implement creative ways of dealing with everyday activities. While seeing the beauty of life, I noticed that we are always confused about how to differentiate between what is right or wrong, both personally and professionally. This is just one simple thing that may lead to a great distinction as to how people act towards a scenario which could be his own life saver when it comes to his job, school concerns, family constraints, or some other relationships as they may deem very important to him. Looking at different places, while strolling inside the malls, or even on my way to school or back to our home, I see faces of people from whom I can feel diverse sentiments. Some are happy- go- lucky. Some may seem problematic. A lot of them, I see, are unsmiling and serious, although some are witty and funny-looking. I believe, these auras help us cope up with the very rough surface of professionalism, in connection to ethics, of course. Based on some existing distinctness, ethical behavior is something that goes......

A Walk in the Forest

...A Walk into the Forbidden Forest (A true story) By Jacob Conteh, Editor, Diaspora Dispatch News My heart jumped out of its cage. My greasy knees danced in disunity, my lips quivered, my mouth dried up and my hair rose to the top of the trees. My forehead dripped with sweat and my sweaty palms trembled. My eyes refused to blink, and my lips quivered. There, a few feet in front of me, sat a killer python coiled up to the size of a huge tractor tire with eyes pointing at us and tongue salivating with hunger. I motioned to my little brother Donald and pointed my fingers to the monster. We tiptoed backwards for a minutes, turned around and ran for our lives. My people, the Thaymnehs (Temnes), are a warrior tribe that reportedly emigrated from a region called Futa Jallon in present-day Guinea to Sierra Leone. My village, Patfu Mayawa, is a farming village of about 200 hundred inhabitants in central Sierra Leone. While most Thaymnehs are either Muslims or Christians, some Thaymnehs sometimes mix their religion with their traditional beliefs. Among those beliefs is that there are gods who dwell on forests and mountains. For the people of Patfu Mayawa, my hometown, they believe there are “devils” that dwell at Chainkafutu, a thick virgin forest hill that towers above the village. Before each of the many celebrations at Patfu that signaled girls’ and boys’ initiation to adulthood – the Poro for boys and Bondo for girls - the village headman would walk the half...

A Walk to Remember

...A Walk to Remember The story is not about mental illness, but the mental and emotional state and how it affects families. Several of the emotional responses are happiness, love, sadness, and loss. One question to ask, “What makes more sense, listening to your head or listening to your heart?” A Walk to Remember is about a high school girl (Jamie) who has Leukemia and a boy (Landon) during his last year of high school will end with a walk that he will never forget. It will change his life mentally and emotionally. Jamie’s illness was not known about except by her father and herself. A Walk to Remember shows opposites, Landon and Jamie. Landon is a typical rebellious teenager whose social life is the “in crowd”. He was very popular with his peers in high school, but feels there is something missing in his life. Landon did not care about attending classes or even graduating. He was the handsome jock, although insecure and vulnerable. He was full of anger and hate for his father, who left his mother and himself when he was young. Jamie is a serious and conservative girl who knew right from wrong and what she wants out of life, setting goals for herself. Landon and his friends consider her a nerd. Jamie portrays a bible hugging, science fiction bookworm who wears the same sweater every day. What others feel about her does not matter. One unique thing about Jamie, she is incredibly friendly to everyone. She enjoys helping elders, visiting orphanages, tutor unfortunate......

The Walk Home

...The walk home It all started with that walk home in the rain that night, She had left the party early and was walking home when the guy she liked that was at the party pulled up next to her and rolled down his window. He offered her a ride home, since she was still mostly dry she said yes. Right after she got into the car she keow that she had done a mistake, she thought the chemistry they were having at the party was strong, she was so wrong. The air in the car sizzled with hot chemistry now. she tried not to look at him. But she could tell out of the corner of her eyes that he was eyeing her out. When they got to the only stop light between where the party was and her house, she was hoping it would be green, but it was red. After the car stopped she could feel his eyes raking over her body now that he did not have to look at the road. She could feel the heat rising in her cheeks and the wetness coming between her legs. Then she felt his hand on her thigh, slowly working its way up. suddenly she wished she had not put the lace panties on under her skirt before she had left. She knew that if his hands got up far enough they would get to her wet panties. Just as they were about there the light turned green, and she cursed in her head, how much she hated that light now. But his hand never left her leg, it was just on her knee now. His thumb slowly going back and forth across her knee making her wetter.

A Walk to Reality

...Jack Phalon  Mrs. Dadio  English 10 Hon  A­2  A Walk to Reality     This whole thing all started earlier this week. I just had this idea stuck in my head. I  wanted to see if I could make the trip all the way from school to my house on my own.    Seven miles isn’t really that far but I knew that my Mom would never go for it.  “Come on, Mom, if you can’t pick me up after practice then maybe I could just walk  home… ?”  Then she would probably say something like, “ Are you crazy ? I would  never let you do anything like that!”     Knowing this did not discourage me one little bit. Many nights I would lay in bed and  ponder how I could start this adventure.  In my mind, I pictured each street, each corner  and all the sights along the way.  As I visualized the journey , it became less of a dream  and more of a realistic goal. I can definitely do this!    Then one day I woke up feeling totally energized and certain that it was just going to be  a great day. My classes were less boring than usual and they had chicken paninis, my  favorite lunch, in the cafeteria.  I got the last seat at the best table and everybody was  cracking up at my jokes. Later, I did pretty well at lacrosse practice and the coach  actually called me by name instead of a swear word.    Things took a turn for the worse though after I got home. Every time I turned around my  Dad was nagging me about something. “Jack, clean up your plate…Jack wash the  dishes...Jack take out the ga......

Walk About

...North End for our walk-about. After we got off at the Haymarket T-stop on a cold, rainy Boston day, we first walked the streets of the surrounding neighborhood before heading to the Old North Church. This notable church is located where the famous phrase "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal by Paul Revere was sent during his midnight ride before the Battles of Lexington and Concord. I was surprised that the church was still decently maintained, even though it was built in 1723 and still being used today. It is the currently the oldest active church in Boston. We turned the corner and right in front of the church was the Paul Revere statue standing high and tall commemorating his memorable ride during the American Revolution. It is claimed to be one of the most photographed sculptures in Boston, which the bronze statue took 16 years to create and 40 years to install in its place. I have always heard about Boston having the feel of New York but with older architecture and history, but I never realized how much history Boston actually possesses right in the heart of the city. I spent weeks and weeks learning about the American Revolution during junior year in US History back in Houston, so being able to see the historical landmarks was quite remarkable. I couldn’t get over the fact that I was walking on almost the exact same land Paul Revere stepped on almost 300 years ago. We then walked downhill and ended up at the Waterfront, home of Boston’s Harbor Walk. The harbor......

Walk with Jesus

...people of all times and just to have a physical walk with him would be truly remarkable. If I could spend a month with any real or fictional person in the past, present, or future, I would choose Jesus. I have spent almost my whole life talking to him personally but to have Jesus physically would be the best. I know that when I get to heaven I will see him but sometimes some of us cannot wait. Jesus is the person that I would ask if I could be one of his disciples, be someone he has done a miracle for so I could tell the world, and I would love to have a long conversation with his mother. In being one of his disciples, I would learn how true a great friend really is. I would be learning how to treat people from the master himself. I would enjoy walking around with him visiting others and fixing the problems of those that have little or no faith. I would love just being present with him as he says his prayers to our father for others to be happy. I would love to share a meal with him and after just sitting around the table telling jokes, because you know Jesus has a great sense of humor. Being someone he has done a true miracle for, so I could tell the world that Jesus is a blessing to all that believes in him. Being around Jesus I would have no more health problems. That is a miracle in itself. He would not dare to ask me to take my meds, there would be no need. I would share my testimony to tell all while we walk and he talks to others about giving their......
