Mosquito Fest - Mosquito Fest I felt a small tickle on my arm. It turned into a pinching itch. I looked at my vulnerable white arm to find a small black-striped mosquito harassing my clean flesh for the perfect spot to strike. At the speed of light it was already injecting my skin and by the time I looked, it had conquered my blood. Mosquitoes, mosquitoes, mosquitoes. Aaaahhhh. They can drive anyone crazy. Walking through the hammocks, not even the insect repellent will save you. I just don’t get it. I’m sacrificing my skin by wearing insect repellant with deet (which melts plastic) and these salt water monsters still managed and dared to pinch and penetrate though my skin, sucking my blood out of me....   [tags: Personal Narrative Descriptive Place Essays] 980 words

There, Where Flows the Alazan by Alexander Gridoedov - The concept of freedom is something that means different things to different types of people. To some it means freedom of expression, whereas to others it means freedom to do what one pleases, and those are only two of several different views of the meaning of freedom. How freedom is defined largely depends on the environment in which one is raised and influenced upon; if one lives in a suppressed government, for instance, their view of freedom is going to be largely different from one who lives in a country in which it is self-ruled....   [tags: freedom of expression, caucasus] 1415 words

The Lake of Fire - The Lake of Fire has been a theological topic of great controversy. Cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses reject the doctrine of eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, and instead they assert that the place is purely symbolic and that one should not take it literally. However, any good student of the Bible knows that although there is much figurative language throughout the Scriptures, he should always interpret the Bible in the literal sense. Therefore, the believer of God’s Word should consider the Lake of Fire a literal place of torment....   [tags: Bible, Scripture, eternal punishment]

Paul Valéry's Le Situation de Baudelaire - Emergent-Emerging Writing An essay written by Paul Valéry is titled "Le Situation de Baudelaire," translated in the Collected English Works as "The Place of Baudelaire." Our translators may have taken liberties here, for if Valéry wanted to say "place" would he not have said "lieu" or "endroit". "Place" comes via Middle English and Middle French alike from Latin "platea," a street or courtyard, whereas both the English and French "situation" are straight from Latin "situ," place. Why this detour through etymology, which seems either way to take us back to, or puts us back in, place....   [tags: ] 2172 words
