  • Personal Narrative-A Day At Camp V-Board

    It was a hot, sunny Thursday at Camp V-Bar; “the hottest camp going”. I had just finished teaching my favorite class; fourth period paddle boarding. I was playing a game of sharf with the rest of the Aquatics Staff under the rain fly. After a vigorous game of sharf, which I won, I was off to my next class. It was my fifth period small boat sailing class; a class I did not enjoy. I was not too thrilled about teaching sailing because the people you would teach would have to be engaged during instruction so they could learn how to sail properly. Along the breezy and sandy lake shore is where I preferred to teach since I could cool down in the water. My fifth period was full of uncontrollable, inconsiderate twelve and thirteen years old who had no respect for anyone. They would never pay attention when I was showing them what we were learning for the day; which was essential to be able to sail with no complications.

  • Gondola In The City Of Venice Essay

    of the gondola as a synecdoche for the city of Venice.
