Hi my name is Bentley. I am black and brown with spots and many people love me more than cats. I am very very fluffy and tiny and I love playing in the backyard. I am also shy around others.
Can you guess what I am? I am a puppy. One day when I was walking back from the beach to the hotel, Chima, the mean dog threw his ball at me and hit me in the head. I told him to say he was sorry but he didn’t. He and all of his friends laughed at me because I didn’t act like they do or pick on other puppies. I felt so embarrassed that I ran as fast as a cheetah back to the hotel where we were vacationing at. Chima, Lily, Marco, Roo, and Josey were all award winning showcase dogs. They were bigger than me and older than me that’s why they bothered me all of the time. After this horrible encounter it was time to go back home to Atlanta, Georgia. After a few weeks passed before I saw them again. This time it was different. I saw Lily, Roo, and Marco screaming for help because Josey and Chima were stuck in a hole. While they were trying to pull them out, Roo and Marco accidently fell in, so Lily needed help. I thought about all the times they had been mean to me but instead of not helping, I ran to Lily, grabbed the rope, and helped her pull them out. They were so relieved to be out of the hole. But even though Bentley helped them out, they still were mean to him. The next day Roo told them that they were wrong for treating me so bad when I never did anything to anyone because I was so shy. The group realized that Roo was right, so they went off to find me playing in the yard. Josey was the first to apologize for being so mean to me for the past two years; then the rest of them apologized.
I forgave them and asked them to play with me. The dogs started playing and having fun. That day I had friends for the first…...

...decisions made by the U. S. Supreme Court. The district court in HPU’s location has a previous rule that the business should be capitalized therefore; it should not be used in this case. The federal court also follows upper court decisions in its decisions. So this court would follow in the ruling of the IRS. The tax court does not have to follow any other court rulings. The tax court is the one where the claim should be filed. This court goes on bases of the company reason of use for deduction. This point that it is not required to follow other court rulings might help HPU with winning this case. References Pope, T. R., Anderson, K. E., & Kramer, J. L. (2011).

When I Turned Diabetic

...child one of our favorite activities was to go camping with our pop up camper. We went close to every weekend or every other weekend during the spring and summer seasons. As I was enjoying riding my bike I felt something that was unusual. I had a thirst that could not be quenched come over me and at the time I did not realize that this trip would be very different from any other in the past. We left for our usual camping trip on a Friday but this time we would be in the doctor’s office as they were opening on Monday morning. As I sit in the diabetic specialist’s office hearing the news that I was diabetic I realized that the life I had known so far would never be the same. It was August of 1989 we were on our way to another weekend of fishing, bike riding, and camping. I was eight years old at the time and was getting ready to start the third grade in elementary school. As soon as we got unloaded I could tell that I didn’t feel quite right. I had a thirst that I could not quench. There was a paved circle where our camper was parked and I remember riding my bike around it continually. In the middle of the circle was a water faucet for the campers to use any time they needed it. I can vividly remember not being able to pass that water faucet without stopping and drinking as much as I could stomach. We also had a case of soda and other drinks for the weekend that I finished off after a day at the campsite. The constant thirst was the worst part of the symptoms,......

When I Was One and Twenty

...When I was One-and-Twenty Summary Our speaker gets some advice from an older, wiser person: don't bank too much on love. Like any young person, he promptly ignores the advice. Did we mention that he's 21? Keep that in mind. It'll be important later. Flash forward: now he's 22. And as it turns out, the advice he got was pretty good. Love hurts. And we're not just quoting that '80s song. Line 1-2 When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, • Uh-oh. Any time a literary work starts out with a wise man's sayings, you just know that they're probably going to be ignored. If we listened to wise advisors, we wouldn't have any stories to tell. And poems are stories, after all. • So, we've got a young whippersnapper and his older mentor. Stay tuned, folks…. Lines 3-6 "Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free." • Well, it turns out that love is worth more than gold. Or, er…the lack of love is worth more than gold. • Don't let the happy tone and snappy rhymes confuse you: this poem is about control. It turns love into an economic calculation, one which allows the "wise man" to balance feelings against more conventional forms of currency (crowns and pounds and guineas are, after all, the big guns of the U.K.'s monetary system). As it turns out, the heart is more valuable than money – which is precisely why the speaker's buddy thinks that it should remain soundly within his control. • Of course,......

I Wrote This When I Was Young, so Don't Judge Me

...told me when great-great grammie Loretta passed away. That was a sad day, yes it was. I cried. You can ask my poppa about how I cried for 2 weeks straight. Oh, how I cried. Maybe I’m getting’ way, way ahead of my-self. My name Loretta, too, and ain’t nobody tellin’ me my name is nothin else. That is not who I is! Anyway, I live on some plantation in northern Carolina and these parts ain’t kind to ya either. I work muh butt off to keep it from that mean, nasty, leather strip.

How I Wrote Jubilee

...An Analysis of “How I Wrote Jubilee” Margaret Walker’s essay “How I Wrote Jubilee” is an essay that summarizes the author’s vast research for the Novel Jubilee. Based on stories her great-grandmother portrayed as bedtime stories in her childhood, the novel itself depicts the life and times of a character named Vyry that went through slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction. This responsive essay gives way to an establishment of educated and factual data through timing, oral history of the stories of those who were in slavery, and primary research of the subject matter, thereby providing ample documentation of the credibility of her novel. When gauging whether an author’s writing is credible, one must first inquire what their educational background is. Keeping this in mind, there are several references of the educational background of Walker in the essay “How I Wrote Jubilee.” Graduating from Northwestern University in Iowa at the young age of 19, Walker went on to obtain her master’s in English from the University of Iowa in 1939, graduating in just a year in 1940. Here she studied at the Writer’s Workshop and began writing her thesis on the Civil War, compiling and reading a laundry list of books about the South, the Negro during slavery, and the slave codes in Georgia. Although Walker’s poem “For My People” was published in 1942 her father heeded warning by stating, “I would have to eat if I wanted to live, and writing poetry would not feed me (Walker 52).” It is......

When I Crossed

...When I Crossed Hello,my name is Jose Sandoval. I am fourteen years old. I come from Honduras. I have one sister in California,the state of freedom. The reason I am here is because of all the violence in my country. My father died when I was just five years old. A a very terrible year for me. After my father perished I became the man of the house. I was always curious what America looked like. My cousins and I always fantasized about it. It was like a big hot cocoa cup with a bunch of mushrooms in them. Ever since I was a kid I have always wanted to go to the United States. When my father died my mother knew right away that I had to leave to the free country. My mom hired a coyote to cross me over the border. The coyote talked to me before we left. He told me that once we crossed the Mexican border everything mattered. How you walked,how you spoke and how you ate. EVERYTHING. *Two months later* I was walking home after work. It was like a normal day,except it wasn’t. Once I arrived i was surprised to find two filled up travel bags. At that moment I knew it was time to go. Two hours later the coyote arrived.

The Thinks Guide to God. (This Is Rubbish I Did It When I Was 15)

...caught my attention as I thought it could challenge me and the way I think about the world. This book also had very good reviews. Personally I didn’t believe in one religion, I believed each religion has very good views. And they aren’t all that much different. While reading the first chapter I enjoyed the detail they went into when analysing the paintings. I would never have look so deeply into the paints and opened my mind into the small feature with such a big point and meaning behind them. I enjoyed reading Aristotle’s views on god. I liked the fact that Aristotle and Plato both have different views and both of which have good points. After learning they both had different views it made me think of all the people in the world and how many people can have different views and beliefs from each other. Although they had different view they still got on… where as in the world to do we have wars for different views. In the second chapter they tell us of the first believing God(s) living in woods, trees, rivers and the earth, fire, water and air; this is something I partly believe in – mostly them living in the highest mountains and the sky… I believe in the gods (like in the film Hercules) I enjoy that the book calls out the view of biologist- the fact they believe god an old man with white bread being worshiped by millions of people across the globe. And the fact the y mocked people when “their understanding is limited, not the concept of God. I enjoyed that the......

Dream Deferred and When I Was One and Twenty

...It is funny how two poems can go hand in hand but not be related in any way. Such is the case with the poems "Dream Deferred" and "When I Was One and Twenty". They speak the same kind of concept in terms of life goals. In "When I Was One and Twenty", the old wise man says not to give your heart away so young because you will regret it. Whether he is talking about having your heart broken by someone at a young age or giving up on your dreams to settle down isn't known. If a person gives up on their dreams or puts them on the back burner to pursue a relationship, it is the same as a raisin in the sun. Although a raisin is a dried up grape that is still full of nutrition, it becomes hard and useless after a while. Such would be the case with life goals, if you put them on hold to pursue a relationship, they become useless over time and forgotten. If a young person enters a relationship while in college lets say, their focus is no longer on school really. Most want to spend as much time as possible with the other. As the writer looks back upon himself in "When I Was One and Twenty", he basically says that he should've listened to the old man's advice. He is only twenty two at that point and already regrets the decision he made to give his heart away. There are plenty of people that will tell you that they had given up on their dreams to continue a relationship. Whether it be letting a dream job be passed up or an opportunity to do something they have always wanted to.......

When I Get Old

...Running head: WHEN I GET OLD 1 When I Get Old Janice Johnson SOC304 – Social Gerontology Dr. Elaine Alden October 26, 2014 Running head: WHEN I GET OLD When I Get Old There are conflicting ideas about what to expect as we get older. Will we be able to keep growing our gardens, be able to keep our present jobs or will the younger generation take our 2 freedom and pride from us. Our text states that no matter how old you are, child or adult, that we are told to “act our age” because societies have a social system that is considered to be normal (Markson & Stein, 2012). It is getting harder to think of a norm for saying someone is old now because we are living longer and for example women are having their children, are almost a grandparent or a last child is just graduating and leaving the home around the same age. The chronological age is not enough to say whether someone is reaching a certain norm age group as easily as it used to be determined (Markson & Stein, 2012). Some of the issues that we do have to deal with as we grow older are when others discriminate against us, the aches and pains that come with different levels of intensity and how we feel about ourselves at this time. Discrimination Anyone who has gone and applied for a job, no matter what kind of education they may have or how they feel, they are turned down for the position and while not telling you, it is because of your age that you were turned down. It is much the same kind of discrimination......
