    tree. We were stuck. She was screaming bloody murder. Nothing could shut her up. Richie and I, both confused, tried to calm her down. After she had stopped screaming and flailing her arms, she yelled “I drove through a spider web! Don’t tell me to calm down!” She said she was blinded and it covered the entire front of her body. As she was saying this, Richie jumps off the four-wheeler. No. He flies off the four-wheeler. I turn my head quickly and ask what happened. He stares at me and then mutters “spider”. I turn to look at Lauren; she has the same puzzled look as I do. When I turn back to look at Richie, I see it. There is a massive spider hanging from my hair. The spider was stuck in my wet, muddy curls. The huge, long legged, black arachnid was centimeters from my face. It was wiggling its legs- all eight of them. I let out a screech and start swinging my arms and moving my head furiously. About a minute had passed and I finally stopped. The spider was out of my hair but now we could not find it. Was it on the seat? Was it on my back? Was it making its way up the side? Richie ran out of the mud and left us there to die. At least that’s what it felt like. Minutes pass and he comes back ready to haul us out. It took fifteen minutes to get out of that hell hole but we did…

Hazlitt makes no big arguments but instead, all his essays build up with well-drawn points to create a conclusion. Hazlitt argues that it is human nature to hate and to exploit the misery in other beings. It is our own self-knowledge of the undesirable within us that leads us to chase and…

    The Greek god I am most like is Athena. One main points of reasoning why I am like Athena is because, we share similar traits. She is the god of wisdom, weaving, and she created numbers. Her symbol is that of the owl and olive tree branch (Hamilton 29). “Zeus was suffering a terrible headache and Athena emerged from his head fully grown, warring a suit of armor (Bierlein 27).” I to tend to get bad headaches especially if I don’t eat to the point that I think my head might explode.

    Men in spandex survive the critic of time. If you don’t know the story of how Peter Parker came to acquire the superhuman abilities of an arachnid or how Clark Kent is more than your below average journalist, then you have yet to experience what so many have been experiencing for decades, but what makes these men in tights so appealing after so many years? A major reason as to why so many film producers have decided on rebooting these iconic films is the advance in technology which has…

    I definitely was not prepared for black widows. Black widows were only something I had heard about through TV. In my mind, I would only come across these arachnids in Australia or some other deadly place. I shuffled away from the trees and closer to the vehicle. No way would I die in North Carolina because of a little spider. Soon, people started to come out of the house to greet us. They trickled slowly toward us. First, Parker’s father introduced himself to me and greeted the rest of…

From its commencement, she suggests that "The barn in Charlotte's Web functions as its own ecosystem,” where the barn not only represents the physical gathering place for the different animals, humans, and arachnid characters, but also the metaphysical crossroads of human culture and biological nature (p. 101). Indeed, Wake focuses on the environmentalist narrative, departing from human…

    my feet. Around me there are plenty of farm animals that are filling the thick, humid, air with a raucous noise. I made my way to the far corner of the barn, as I dodged humming insects hovering around some of the animals. When I arrived at our meeting place, I looked up to see a beautifully woven “Good Afternoon” stitched into a web of silk in the top corner of the barn. She then descended slowly from the ceiling on a string of silk, and introduced herself simply as "Charlotte". There she…
