    Ever noticed how quickly time fly’s by? A single day retains only twenty-four hours; ones individual life is contrived up of these single seconds, hours, and minutes. Before it’s even realized that time has passed. How that time was spent is inconsequential. I realized that no matter how that time was used; that day will come to a halt. When it ends there is a series of questions you can ask yourself. In my opinion there is one question that trumps the others. Did I have a positive effect on the…

    The song I chose is “Surfin’ U.S.A.”, is characterized by the Beach Boys. I chose this song because of how laid back the tune sounds and makes me want to relax. It’s relaxing because the song reminds me of the beach and the sounds of the waves. In the song it talks about how they will be gone for the summer and to tell the teacher they have gone surfing. The summer always reminds me of the beach and all the surfers in the water. In the 1960’s California was known as the surfing state. The Beach…

    Kailua The location that I chose to observe was Kailua beach in Hawaii. The beach is known to be a local hotspot. There you will find many locals swimming, surfing, barbecuing, and enjoying themselves. Driving up to the beach you probably wouldn’t think that right behind the abandoned house was how you actually got to the beach. There is a small parking lot that locals wait to park in. There is no paved pathway to get to the beach there are only paths on the grass that have been made by people.…

    "Let’s take the kids down to the beach today.” Joshua was slipping bottled water, apples, and crackers into the backpack we took everywhere with us like I’d already said yes. “Ugh. Today? Can’t we just stay home and put on a movie for the kids?” Victoria lolled her head to the side –the thought of trekking all four kids down to the beach and then trying to have an enjoyable afternoon while trudging through the sand was exhausting. They hadn’t even left the house, and she was already exhausted.…
