This is one topic I think about a lot, how I’ve changed or as I like to put it, bettered myself. I like talking about this because in the past couple of years I have noticed a huge change in myself. Over this summer is when I’ve really just realized it. Usually when it comes to writing assignments in an English class I have a hard time figuring out what to start it with or what to even say at all, that’s what I love about writing things I’m interested in or can relate to; I can write about it with lots of though and interest. So first of all let me tell you what I did this summer. My summer was half terrible but the other half was the best summer of my life. I’ll start with with the beginning. So I have this friend. He is a big part in my life and a big reason in my change. Adam and I met each other about a year and two months ago. I know that sound like a short time but it feels like my whole life that I have known him, and I hope there are lots more to come with getting to know him. He has taught me so much in one year even if he may not know it. When I met him last year I was this young gullible girl looking for puppy love. Every summer I stay with my Grandma most of the time, in Morehead. This is where I met Adam. Well after having this “summer fling thing” with Adam, I had to go back home to Warsaw, two hours away from Adam. He hurt me many time since then but has also changed a lot, in a good way. But every time he hurt me I learned a little something new and helped him a little more. I learned a lot about boys and their game but I also learned a big thing, I learned to love myself! I also learned that love, no matter what kind of love, is real when you learn to not want just yourself to be happy, but when you really just want the other person to be happy and know help them love their self. I’ve learned to also love like Jesus does and it made me really understand Gods love. Some of this story may sound bad and make me look ignorant but has taught me so much and made me the person I am today. Also it showed me that people really can change even if you can’t change them you can help. My next story involves losing a friend but also making
"Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,"
Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead, yeah,
You know how the time flies,
Only yesterday was the time of our lives,
We were born and raised in a summer haze,
Bound by the surprise of our glory days,
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it,
I had hoped you'd see my face,
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over,
“Purple Haze was in my brain, lately things don’t feel the same, acting funny but I don’t know why. ‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky…” You could hear these psychedelic lyrics clamorously stumbling out of my grandfather’s squalid garage & marching into my curious seven year old ears. The rhythm of this man’s harmonic tunes rattled my bones with exhilaration. I eagerly rummaged through my grandfather’s mountainous mounds of old records & CD’s. In search of that precious voice that caught my attention…

Walking down the streets of Toronto, during the crowded summer months, you may have noticed low dark fog which lingers under your nose and makes breathing hard and unclean.
This unnatural fog is called smog. Smog is fog that has become mixed and polluted with smoke. Smog is affecting Torontonians in a bad way. From residents to city workers in Toronto, smog is causing sickness and death. The warm summer months and extensive air pollution from man made products and natural events…

England and the east Midlands are the least stormy. Britain's climate is dominated by the influence of the sea. It is much milder than that in any other country in the same latitudes. This means that marine influences warm the land in winter and cool in summer. This moderating effect of the sea is in fact, the cause of the relatively small seasonal contrasts experienced in Britain. The air in winter is likely to be cooler than the surface water, so that the heat passes from water to air. Air at low levels…
Charlottetown has a humid continental climate moderated partially by Prince Edward Island's location in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Cool on-shore breeze moderate much of the summer heat. Bright clear days give autumn scenery a visual crispness that contrasts with the mellow haze of late summer. Winters, however, can be harsh, with violent snowstorms and a stabbing coldness that can linger well into spring if northerly winds push gulf ice into the strait. The climate is moderate with…

Humbert also meets her 12-year-old daughter, Dolores (born 1935), known as "Lo", "Lola", or "Dolly", with whom he immediately becomes infatuated, partly due to her uncanny resemblance to Annabel, and privately nicknames her "Lolita". Humbert stays at the house only to remain near her.
While Dolores is away at summer camp, Charlotte, who has fallen in love with Humbert, tells him that he must either…
Even though it is stated that she wakes up in a haze, it is a minor detail in the mental state Connie is in. The plain realism displayed in the short story has a purpose to bring realistic events to the surface of reality and to set an example of how easy it happens. Interpreting this short story to…
Lolita is a complex story of passion, obsession, and manipulation. In the forward, Psychologist John Ray, Jr., introduces the story; "Lolita, or the Confession of a White Widowed Male,"(Nabokov, Vladmir Lolita, 3) as written by a middle-aged European pedophile named Humbert Humbert. The essentials of this title immediately strike you as controversial considering that a lolita is a promiscuous young girl and a confession is an admission of one's sins. Hum is viewed as the victimizer by others, but…
