By this days events, The Roshina’s economy, infrastructure and government would be changed forever.

Five words: the garden is beautiful

Describing a walk thing-a-ma-bob:

The way they walked drew the eye to their feet, pointed outwards like a ballet dancer’s. Their stride was mature, but far from decrepit, like a child that has been exposed to the harsh reality of the world from a young age. Their posture drew the eye and reeked of import, arrogance and narcissism, strong and tall like the buildings of the surrounding concrete jungle.

Next word: ravishing: smell from kitchen in morning.

A waft of burning coconut oil glides through to my bedroom, inducing a craze of hunger. My stomach growls like an angry tiger and takes over my brain, pulling me out of bed and towards the kitchen. The godly discs sit on a stark white plate, glowing with heavenly radiance, ready to be feasted upon. The first thing that hits me is the bittersweet tickle of lemon juice running down my throat, followed by the tingling sensation of sugar and finally the wholesome taste of the pancake as I swallow my first bite. In seconds, my first serving is gone like a dream in the morning. The next is similar, but instead of the zest, it is a rough, spicy cinnamon flavour. I down three pancakes in my ravenous mood, before I sit back in my chair and let gluttonous guilt and rabid regret overcome me.

 

Land in the clouds

The steam-ship soared through the cloud layer, its double screws propelling it through the white wonderland.

“Pearl Harbour ahead, Five mikes, bearing one-five-nine”

“Maintain current course, all ahead one fifth” The Captain replied.

Captain Ulysses Sharma was a veteran of the American Navy, a grizzled old man whose prize and joy was his ship, the U.S.S Galapagos. She was a Strongarm class frigate, 4 vertical turbines and two Intake driven propellers for movement. She was light and fast, armed with 1 360* Broadside gun emplacement, and powered by a newfangled Nuclear reactor.

“Pearl Harbour in sight, sir,” Said the XO. “And damn is she pretty”

The Gigantic flying city of Pearl Harbour appeared out of the mist, like magic. The first thing the eye is drawn too are the gigantic turbines, each as large as a Venator class carrier. These mechanical monstrosities stop the city from falling from the sky. The metallic surface was covered in factories and supply depots and laced with roads. The next was the amassed American fleet, awaiting completion so they could head out and join the war over Europe. The U.S.S Vindicator, the Navy’s flagship sat in the middle of the city. She was massive, The biggest sky-ship in the world. She was a Venator class carrier, powered by 4 Nuclear reactors and lifted by four 25 meter in diameter uplift rotors.

layering a scene

The street is filled with the cacophony of war. Screams and gunfire reverberate around the squat mud-brick buildings. Some are gone, craters in their place. One building looms ahead, still standing among the piles of rubble. It’s small, rough window beckons you. You run towards it, hoping to find shelter from the raging combat. You reach the window and look inside, while bullets ping off the walls around you. It is a field hospital, full of screams and blood. Inside, under the window is a white sheet, like many of the other improvised body-bags. Five of the white coffins lie together, like resting sheep. However, one, in particular, catches your attention. It is smaller than the others, like a child. The stark white blanket is obscured in the middle by a macabre splotch of blood, fresh and crimson. Looking closer, you see that the patch is slowly growing, blood pumping out of the body and into the fabric. Small feet poke out of the bottom, fitted with tiny sandals. The body is of a child, It’s life slowly seeping out and saturating its cloth wrap. Fascinated by the body, you fail to notice the other two white-wrapped carcasses that have been added to the lineup by medical personnel.

 

 

Preposition writing

Over the water, looming like giants are steep mountains, laced with trees and shrubbery. Between the hills and the crystal surface are colorful houses, bustled together on the uneven surface like a flock of mountain sheep. From the bottom of the sea erupt bleak gray cliffs, a barrier against the ferocious tides. In the mountainside is the road, cut into the side of the surface at a seemingly impossible angle. Inside the town square, there is a market, cries of buyers and sellers wafting out of the arrayed stalls and into the cool sea air. Down from the center of the town winds a path, leading to the ocean. At the edge of the water are the people of the town, soaking in the sunshine and frolicking in the refreshing aqua. Along the coast from them is the marina, cluttered with luxury yachts and boats. Under the town square is a tunnel, a direct route to the beautiful caverns under the island. Above the scene, the glaring Mediterranean sun sits in the blue sky, casting its burning gaze over the bustling township like God himself.

The deep navy screen envelops the twilight, choking all light from the scene like water chokes a drowning sailor. small nocturnal animals screech towards the bright torches in the heavens. Cozy houses spew invisible towers of smoke into the damp outside air. The people’s houses protect their owners resting bodies, standing silently like the guards at Buckingham Palace. few get to appreciate the scene of twilight, but those who do remember it forever.

Fate: an essay

Romeo and Juliet is one of William Shakespeare’s most famous play. The general storyline has been reworked and redone countless times, a story of love and sacrifice. It is one of the most significant plays of the 16th century. One of the most interesting things about this piece is the underlying concept of fate. Different features are used to express this theme in the play. Of the many, I will be discussing Metaphor, Foreshadowing, and acts of God.

The first signs of fate in Romeo and Juliet are the Metaphors. They play an important part in adding to the dramatic irony of the play. It gives the audience or reader knowledge of what is going to happen and lets them know more than the characters. There are lots of uses of metaphor in Romeo and Juliet. The first is the Metaphor of Death. It occurs multiple times throughout and adds a sense of Irony as the characters unknowingly predict the outcome. One good example is when Juliet says “Go ask his name. If he be married, my grave is likely to be my wedding bed”. She says this after she meets Romeo at the Capulet’s ball in act 1. The grave as wedding bed saying occurs more than once in the play, and acknowledges the end of the play when Juliet and Romeo are wedded in her grave, to be eternally together in the afterlife. Another commonly used metaphor is the Boat/Sea metaphor. Romeo talks about how he is a passenger on a boat (life) that is helmed by fate. In act 2 he says “By love, who did first prompt me to inquire; he lent me counsel and I lent him eyes. I am no pilot; yet, wert thou as far as that vast shore wash’d with the farthest sea, I would adventure for such merchandise”. In this quote, he recognizes that he is not a pilot, and says that no matter how far Juliet is he would venture for her. Also, at the start of the quote, he talks about love. Love is his guide. Love first prompted him to go to the ball because he was sad about not being loved back by Rosaline. Love lent him counsel (wisdom) about Juliet and in return, he lent love eyes because love is blind. Love is Romeo’s mysterious pilot, who guides him every step until the end.

 

Similar to metaphor, foreshadowing is another sign of fate in Romeo and Juliet. foreshadowing is where a character unknowingly predicts future events. Like metaphor, It is used by Shakespeare to give the audience a sense of dramatic irony. There are a lot of times in the play where a character foreshadows a future event. One of the most known of these is when Friar Lawrence is marrying Romeo and Juliet. He says “These violent delights have violent ends, and in their triumph die like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume”. At first, he talks about violent delights. This is referring to Romeo and Juliet’s love, which is a passionate and violent affair. This passion will lead to a violent end for both of them. He next talks about fire and powder. In their triumph, or their love, they die like fire and powder. Fire and powder have a unique bond in which one consumes the other until there is nothing left, then dies out itself. This is like Romeo and Juliet’s love, a fast relationship that escalates to a finale before burning out. As they kiss consume links to Romeo’s final word and action, kissing Juliet before drinking the poison, saying “With a kiss, I die”. Another major foreshadow occurs just after Mercutio is mortally wounded by Tybalt, saying “A plague a’both your houses”. This foreshadows the rest of the play, where the death of Mercutio indirectly causes the final outcome, by making Romeo kill Tybalt and leading to his (Romeo’s) banishment. The plague on both the houses is the loss of their beloved children. This Quote can also refer to the Black Plague, which plays a major part in the story.

 

Acts of God played an important part in Romeo and Juliet. A lot of events are caused by seemingly good luck, but is there something more going on in the shadows? There are multiple instances in Romeo and Juliet where a coincidence is just too unlikely. When Lord Capulet’s servant goes to the town to find someone to read the guests off the invitation list, who does he first come across? Romeo and Benvolio. After they read the invitation to him (servant), he invites them to the ball. He says “Now I’ll tell you without asking. My master is the great rich Capulet, and if you be not of the house of Montagues, I pray come and crush a cup of wine.”. This invitation leads to Romeo and Juliet meeting at the ball, and without them meeting there would be no story. The fact that Romeo and Benvolio happened to be walking in the right spot at the right time, just as the servant was passing through can be seen as an act of God. There would be a fair few people in Verona, and the servant coming across our hero first has to be more than coincidental. God changed the servant’s fate to come across Romeo and Benvolio before anyone else. Another act of God in Romeo and Juliet is the Plague in act 5. In the time of the Bubonic (Black) Plague in Europe, many people saw it as an act of God, sent to cleanse the Earth of Heretics and Atheists. The Plague prevented Friar John from delivering Friar Lawrence’s message to Romeo, leading to the final outcome of the play as Romeo kills himself over “dead” Juliet. In Friar John’s words, “…Where the infectious pestilence did reign, seal’d up the doors, and would not let us forth, so that my speed to Mantua there was stay’d…”. The Plague was an act of God, sent to stop Romeo from learning of Juliet’s fake death. This leads to the final outcome, where they both wind up dead. This may have been God’s, or Shakespeare’s fate’s plan all along. He sacrificed the two lovers by twisting their fate, causing the Families to stop their feuding. God caused Romeo and Juliet’s death for the greater good, a classic case of doing the wrong thing for the right reason.

Fate is used by Shakespeare a fair few times in Romeo and Juliet and to great effect. It helps the reader along with the story and gives a subtle, underlying concept that adds the entirely new level of God and prophecy to the play. Whether it is Metaphor, Foreshadowing or Act’s of God that he uses to display it, The play is a masterpiece of subtle hints and dramatic irony, which helps us understand the sorrow of Romeo and Juliet. This story will be a classic tale of fate and love forevermore.

The Earth IS flat

It is a known fact in modern society that the Earth is in fact flat. 6000 years ago, God created the Earth. He made this Earth flat so as to stop his beloved children, Humanity, from falling off of it. The Earth has to be flat because there is so much evidence to support it. If the Earth was round, How would we have floods and oceans? The water would simply run off of the Earth. How would people in the Southern Hemisphere stay on? Some people attribute these miracles to “Gravity”. The truth of the matter is, gravity doesn’t exist. Isaac Newton didn’t discover gravity, he made it up. If the Earth is flat, there is no need for gravity, as things will just fall down by themselves. Many good Christians attended a meeting near the Kennedy Space Center of NASA, and their leader said that God himself had told him that gravity did not exist and that the earth was flat in space, with the solar system spinning around it. This is evidence that the earth is flat, Because God, having created the Earth, would know what it looked like. The Earth does not spin either. If we were truly spinning at 1000 miles per hour, Surely we would feel it? This is solid evidence that the Earth does not spin. In my opinion, the world needs to be educated by people of my intelligence, so that they are not believing in fake creation stories for the rest of their life, and worse, forcing their satanic lies upon future generations.

Romeo and Juliet: My response

this film was great. Baz Lurhman’s style showed through with lots of overdramatized stuff. It was very different to the book, especially at the end, but what movie isn’t? I wasn’t really fazed by the ending because I knew they were going to die, and I only get sad about movies if I don’t know the plot line. overall, pretty good movie, IGN 7/10
