Haunted Corn Maze

It was a cold October night as my mom pulled up in our church’s parking lot. I opened the door & got out the car & headed towards a small building which was where our youth group met every Friday night at 7pm. That Friday night we were going to a haunted corn maze.We were all looking forward to it. In our youth group there was about 20-30 kids. As soon as everyone got their they made us give our parents these papers that they needed to sign in order for us to go on the little field trip. We we're about 30 kids & they was only 4 cars & that meant that one car would have to ride with 6 kids in it. As soon as we got the car situation figured out we headed out into the freeway. Silence roamed the air as we all sat their in silence. Finally the girl sitting in the front said “You guys want some music?” she said in a questionable tone. She turned on the radio at that moment the song International Love by Pit-bull ft. Chris Brown was playing & since we all knew the lyrics to this song we all decide to sing along. After that song the next three we're all songs that we knew so we all sang along. An hour had gone by & it was silent once again. I was feeling kind of tired so I decide to take a quick nap. I was awoken by loud yells & people arguing about something. I asked my friend who was sitting next to me “What's going on?”& she said that we were lost. We waited about 30 minutes until the one of the other cars came to help us. We followed the other car all the way to the Haunted Corn Maze.
We arrived at the corn maze around 9:30pm we spent like 5 minutes trying to find a parking space. When we finally found one, we got out & headed towards the corn maze. Their was tons of people, some were at the pumpkin carving station, others were getting some popcorn & the rest of the were either waiting in line to get into the corn maze or going home. We all…...

Corn

...and profits, it will be seen, have a very intimate connexion with each other. The principles which regulate rent are briefly stated in the following pages, and differ in a very slight degree from those which have been so fully and so ably developed by Mr Malthus in his late excellent publication, to which I am very much indebted. The consideration of those principles, together with those which regulate the profit of stock, have convinced me of the policy of leaving the importation of corn unrestricted by law. From the general principle set forth in al Mr Malthus's publications, I am persuaded that he holds the same opinion as far as profit and wealth are concerned with the question; -- but, viewing, as he does, the danger as formidable of depending on foreign supply for a large portion of our food, he considers it wise, on the whole, to restrict importation. Not participating with him in those fears, and perhaps estimating the advantages of a cheap price of corn at a higher value, I have come to a different conclusion. Some of the objections urged in his last publication, -- "Grounds of an Opinion," &c. I have endeavoured to answer; they appear to me unconnected with the political danger he apprehends, and to be inconsistent with the general doctrines of the advantages of a free trade, which he has himself, by his writings, so ably contributed to establish. On the Influence, &c. Mr Malthus very correctly defines, "the rent of land to be......

Corn

...there looking all “sweet”, but I know deep down, you’re just about ready to POP! You know how I know? Because...you’re… corn. “What?” you say, “I’m not corn, I’m a person!” ah-ah-ah, you see, I am a firm believer that you are what you eat; and I’m fairly convinced that you, myself, and everyone else in America, eats corn. <Beat>+<Beat in between sentences> About three years ago I was watching an episode of the Colbert Report in which he pointed out our nation’s insane dependence on corn. It made me realize just how unaware of corn we actually are. A good analogy our situation with corn, is that of the Bourne Series, where a man wakes to find he does not remember anything of his past, and must fight through a corrupted government to find the Truth. Like Mr. Bourne, we have forgotten just what corn means to us, and the hold it has over us. But by examining how our society became rooted in corn, and why our society will never be able to shuck its corn dependence, you can skip the violence and go straight for the understanding. I’ll begin with explaining corn itself, or, The Corn Identity The history of corn is summarized nicely by, surprise surprise, Mike Gibson of Iowa State University: Corn, known as Maize in all but a handful English-speaking countries, is a grain originally domesticated by peoples in Mesoamerica around 2,500 B.C. Corn was the major crop for the Aztecs, Mayas, Incas and various Pueblo dwellers of the southwestern United States. Next,......

The Haunted Cemetry

...clock set on my bedside table, I put on my glasses and headed to the bathroom to get ready before Emily wake up. She always got angry if she woke up and I was not done with the bathroom, since she took forever to get ready no matter what the occasion is. The bell rang indicating that the first period had started, and I hurried to my first class thinking about some plans for tonight since it was Friday the thirteenth. After attending four classes, the nuns dismissed all the students to get ready for tonight. While everyone strolled away excited for their plans, Emily and I walked to our dorm hoping that we could find something to do tonight. "Can we please visit the cemetery next to us?" Emily said eagerly, hoping I would agree to go to the HAUNTED cemetery next to our orphanage. I just couldn’t believe she was this crazy, but I added courageously "We can drop by and come back before the sunsets since we have nothing to do.” On our way to the cemetery Emily was squealing and talking excitingly until we finally arrived. I trembled and hesitated to open the gate, since I was having a terrible feeling about this. We entered the cemetery with big cautious eyes staring at the scenery in front of us. Fog was covering the place, and dark black crows hovered over the graves. The place was littered and disgusting with enormous banyans planted on both sides of the pathway in front of the gate. They attracted my attention because according to Sister Mary, our biology teacher,......

Haunted House

...ride another surge ran through my body. I loved it! I wish it would go on for like ten minutes. We got off with smiles on our faces. I kept using the word “kakkoii”. It was Japanese for cool. We now looked for bump cars. My special someone kept on screaming “Alam na niyo na gagawin ah! Banggain si Marilou!” (“You know what do! Crush Flirty!”). We all hated her so bad. Marilou was not her real name as well. I just decided to name her here Flirty. I think she sensed something bad was about to happen, so Flirty decided not to join in the merrymaking. I picked a green car, and my classmate joined me. I was annoyed because my wheel was on reverse if you know what I’m talking about. We went backwards, which I didn’t enjoy. We went to another haunted house again. This time I was determined to protect my special someone at all costs. We weren’t even inside, but her arm is already entwined with mine. It looked like I didn’t mind it, but deep inside I didn’t want that scenario to end. When we entered she hid behind me. I clasped her hand with mine, and then I got so happy when she held on tight. I don’t want to forget that part. It really was memorable. I now wish every place was a horror house. This would be the time where she would never let go of me. As we went through those half-assed animated dolls I held her hand as if we were real lovers. She was real scared because I heard her scream all the time. I expected real people dressed in scary clothes would shock us, for I fear......

The Haunted House

...The haunted house Everyone says that the old house at the end of the road is haunted. It used to be the residence of a rich family but now none of them would stay there. So the house is vacant and uncared for. The compound is filled with over-grown weed and grass. My friend Jack and I decided to find out once and for all if what people said was true. So one evening, we bravely entered the house and prepared to spend the night there. We brought along a powerful torchlight, two sleeping-bags, some food and drinks, and a portable stereo set. The early part of the night was no trouble at all. We sat on our sleeping-bags and listened to our favourite music. Twelve midnight came. We felt a bit sleepy. So we switched off the stereo set and crawled into our sleeping-bags. However sleep was impossible. There seemed to be a heavy atmosphere hanging around us. The darkness was oppressive and there was a strange soft whining noise coming from upstairs. We dared not go up to investigate the noise. So we lay quietly in our sleeping-bags and hoped that the noise would go away. But it would not go away. Actually it got louder and louder. Then it sounded like someone moaning. Jack hurried out of his sleeping-bags and switched on the torchlight. We could see nothing except the walls of the empty living room we were in. Suddenly there was a loud crash from upstairs and the moans turned to screams. We screamed too and ran out of the house as fast as we could, leaving behind...

The Maze Runner

...to his own job. The Glade is surrounded by a giant Maze where vicious, slug-like creatures with mechanical like arms, named Grievers, roam at night. Massive walls called the Doors surrounding the Glade protect the Gladers from these creatures by sliding closed every night. Every week, supplies are brought to the Glade and once a month a new boy is sent up through an elevator called the Box. The day after Thomas is brought to the Glade, a girl is sent with a message claiming she is the "last one ever." A girl has never been brought in before and the Gladers are excited and confused by her unexpected arrival. Immediately after arriving, the girl falls into a vegetative state. Meanwhile, Thomas learns more about the Glade, and he feels at home like he's been there before. He learns that the Gladers have been trying to solve the Maze for two years and that the Grievers sting can cause you to recall almost complete memories from the past. The process is painful and dreaded by other Gladers. He feels oddly connected to the new girl and also befriends a young Glader named Chuck, as well as a boy named Newt. On the other hand, he has a somewhat negative relationship with Gally, who is suspicious of Thomas and claims that he has seen him, after he was stung by a Griever, in a process known as the Changing. Thomas also feels an inexplicable urge to be a Runner, the people who explore, map out, and try to find a way out of the Maze. One day, one Runner and the "leader of the......

...gigantic maze surrounds the Glade. Inside, mechanical creatures called Grievers roam it at night. The huge doors into the maze close at sunset and reopen in the morning. Every week supplies are sent, and every month a new boy arrives in an elevator called, "the Box," It is the same elevator Thomas arrived in. There are also Beetle Blades, mechanical bugs which spy on the Gladers, with "WICKED" (World in Castastrophe - Killzone Experiment Department) written on them. After Thomas arrives, an unconscious girl arrives carrying a note reading, "She's the last one." She is taken to the infirmary to recover from a coma before being questioned.

Maze Runner

...The Maze Runner book review The Maze Runner is very similar to the Hunger games books as it almost has the same story line. I would suggest to anyone who enjoyed reading the Hunger Games, they would very much relish the chance to read The Maze Runner. The basic plot of the book is the lead character Thomas wakes up in an abandoned elevator by himself and has no memories of life before the elevator he wakes up in, the only memories he had were not specific and were bare such as his school, however he doesn’t remember any people faces and only remembers his name. The elevator doors open and he finds himself in a huge field with boys aged 12-18. The boys are known as Gladers and use their own dialect every other words so the first couple of chapters are very hard to understand but once you get the hand of it, it’s all very easy. All the boys lived in huts inside this field and there are massive walls surrounding them so Thomas is very unsure of his position. Outside the walls there is a huge maze which runs on for miles and miles, which seems to run nowhere. Everyday this group of boys called the runners try to find a way out of the maze. However they have to return every night as the wall go up and the boys would be stuck outside the maze where these horrible creatures called Griever’s come out and hunt down the children. These creatures are half animal half machine and have saws for arms. Thomas came up with a dangerous plan to escape. The plan works, but half of the group......

He could have disappeared. One day, Nancy Bullock taunted Todd. “If you think you’re so tough, then I challenge you to go to the haunted mansion and stay there for a whole night” Nancy said. Everyone knew that the manor was vacant for over 50 years. Everybody wants to know how that will turn out. “Whatever, you’re on”. Todd exclaimed. When Todd was at the gate, dim clouds appeared. Lightning struck the roof. While he was slowly walking in, he saw that the door was opened .When he ascended into the house, he heard a loud squeak. He was questioning what it was. The first thing he gazed at was the living room. It was all filthy. The only stuff there was a T.V. and a couch and they were covered with immense plastic bags. Then he arrived at the kitchen. In a second, there were knives coming at him. He leaned to his right and the knives punctured into the wall. For the first time, Todd felt apprehensive. When Todd was walking upstairs, he found a show case. It was clogged with swords and paintings. He opened it and swung a sword. Then, he took a painting and looked closely. It looked like his dad.
