    • 900 Words
    • 4 Pages

    I enter the music room really nervous about asking Mia to the Yo-Yo Ma concert, What if she say “No”. I mean I have done this other time so why am I nervous so I am just going to ask her, “Have you heard of the Yo-Yo Ma dude?”. She rolls her eyes and say “Everyone’s heard of the Yo-Yo Ma.” I grin and hooked my ringed thumb out toward the quad, “I don’t think you’ll find five people out there who’ve heard of YO-YO Ma. And by the way, what kind of the name is that? Is it ghetto or something? Yo Ma?” She answered right away “It’s Chinese.” I shook my head and laughed. “I know plenty of Chinese people. They have names like Wei Chin. Or Lee something not Yo-Yo Ma.” I found it very amusing the way she expresses about Yo-Yo Ma. “You cannot blaspheming the master.” She said. She started to laugh and then I started to laugh. I just thought about the way she laugh I found that is one of the many thing I like about her she is different from all the other girls I have dated. Then I just said “What would you say if I had tickets to the master?” Damn she just love them that she responded right away “Shut up. You do not.” She shoved me a little but I thought it was cute that she thought she was tougher than me. Than I pretended to fall against the glass wall and dusted myself off. “I do. At the Schnitzle place in Portland.” She says. “It’s the Arlene Schnitzer Hall. It’s part of the Symphony.” I say. “ That’s the place. I got tickets. A pair. You interested.” “Are you serious? Yes! I was…

In the chapter “Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong” in the book The Things They Carried, author Tim O’Brien lets us answer these questions ourselves. The chapter is a sweet one, we think in the beginning. It’s about a young soldier flying his sweetheart out to the war in Vietnam for a visit, since he can’t visit her. She…

    Some scientist didn’t believe that the popping noise had anything to do with gas bubbles. To follow up on this hypothesis, some scientist used an MRI to prove the “gas bubble theory” wrong. First, scientist had studied 10 joints by using volunteers’ fingers into a tube. They did this so they could apply traction to the joint. They had specifically used the metacarpophalangeal joints because those were the most common joints that people crack. Then, they took images before and after cracking the…

    The Day I Stopped Touching You know how some people don’t like others to touch their belongings without their permission? Well that’s how my mom is and she is very strict about those kinds of things. Like most people were, when I was little we loved touching everything, despite the ban of grownups. My mom always said that I couldn’t touch her possessions unless she said to do so, even if it was mine or someone gave it to me. The reason why is that because in Haiti, if a grown up gives a child…

    It has been four of the most rough, amazing and successful years in high school, all that because the right people came into my life. Today, those people became the closest friends to me: my best friends. As a matter of fact, they became my second family. If it weren’t for them, I would still be the quiet, shy and self-hiding person I use to be. Luckily, the way life works with meeting new people, and new places gave me the opportunity to move on from who I once was to outshine myself into who I…

    Insurgent began with a very interesting and fast-pasted start beginning only an hour after the previous book in the series Divergent. I thought this was very well done by the author because while it would have been better to read the previous book in the series, the way the author Veronica Roth wrote the book, any reader that did not read the previous book Divergent would be able to understand what was going on in the plot of the book by the end of the first chapter. Roth’s’ writing style made…

    The thin metal door of Rukia's locker swung open, revealing her colorful folders and an extensive amount of Chappy decorations. Sighing, the raven haired girl deposited a rather large stack of textbooks into the space. "This is what I get for taking all advanced classes," she muttered to herself, grabbing her bag. As Rukia turned to leave her locker, a bright orange figure positioned itself, or rather herself, to Rukia's right. "Hi, Rukia." "Hey, Orihime." "Are you free after school?" "I…

    “I’ve got it! There’s something in human flesh.” Vincent rolled his eyes. “There’s lots of things in human flesh. Protein, fat molecules....” Steven kept on like he hadn’t heard the sarcasm in Vincent's voice. “That’s not all.” “Enlighten me then.” The amber liquid splashed against the vial in Stevens hand competing for attention with the broad smile on his face. “It’s us,” he said. “We are the cure.” “What are you talking about man? Spit it out already.” The 20-hour shifts were getting…
