Where i come from My house isn't the typical country house at the end of the street. It’s huge and the most noticeable building in the whole of the village. To get to my house you have to start a journey through a heavily wooded path leading to the gate way. As you drive down you are surrounded by the wilderness, the trees enclose around with the tiniest bit of sunlight shining through the trees. As walk up to the front door. You have to appreciate the enchanted woodlands with the wind whistling in your ear. Its such a peaceful place with no other building surrounding you just the birds chipping away and the forest creatures frolicking in the leaves. As you continue walking to the front door you get to the little stairs you have to big columns leading to the most elegant doors. They are made of mahogany a reddish brown timber from a tropical tree in africa.They have stained glass in the centre of the door to give a sophisticated look. I now head to my living room with my 65 inch tv which is 3D and my luxury golden brown sofa. The wallpaper is 250 years old but would never look out of fashion, as you touch it’s soft and furry. I now head to my bedroom its the most comfortable place to rest and sleep. The wallpaper is stippy pink and in the centre of the room where a fire place used to be i have a floral cream and pink wallpaper. On the right hand side i have my white television and xbox where i spend hours on end screaming at the tv having not won my game. Beside my television i have my walk in wardrobe where i press a button and it spins my clothes around so i can choose what to wear without ripping my clothes out of my wardrobe and getting myself in a hify. I have a family and friends collage where i have all my greatest memories, it makes me…

If one were to sit down and think "where am I?" You would think "well I'm here." But think about it in a more literal way. Yes, you are "here" but where is here; is it in your brain or is it in your body. What if your brain and body became two separate entities, how would you distinguish where you are?In In Denett's "Where Am I" he discusses this very idea. His brain and body become separate, to distinguish between the two he names them. His brain is named Yorick and his body is named Hamlet. Throughout…
Where Am I From?
The book Something Like Hope by Shawn Goodman sets a theme of “where am I from?” by having such a hectic life all her years, it’s hard to talk about where she is from and who she is. Choosing this book wasn’t difficult what so ever. It sounded great and also real life stories are very interesting. It’s much easier to relate to and puts a vivid image in your head throughout.
This book is about a girl that has been in and out of juvenile detention ever since she was in the 7th grade…
I Believe Morals Come From Within
While growing up and going through the many changes that many young adults and children do I was always told what path in life I should take. This goes from the morals that I should have had, to the religion I should believe in, to the friends I should choose, to what my hobbies were, etc.
My first experiences of something “out of the ordinary” were when my brother and I would be sent to my Aunt Kerry’s every summer for two weeks. She would bring us to bible…

At the time of the Quiet Revolution, workers found it difficult to borrow…

There’s No Place Like Home
From the beginning I was never alone,
From preschool to high school I’ve always been known
We were called the “Full House.”
A set of twins and triplets defines my story,
Now read a little bit of my history.
Walking into my house was never unknown,
The creek in the door was one thing,
But the sweet smell of roses always reminds me of spring.
The purple couch always called my name
And I ran to it like a burning flame.
I remember doing my homework at the kitchen…
Where does identity come from?
Identity comes from within your-self; it is who you are and what you do. I have learned a lot about my identity, I understand it more because of the articles we read as a class, the videos we watched, and the poems we read. What makes up my identity are the books and magazines I read, the sports I play, the people I hang out with, and my whole life experiences.
In the videos we watched about identity I learned that some people look at others and judge them based…

We are awake for the daily tasks needed to be done but we…
