  1. “The trouble is if you don’t spend your life yourself, other people spend it for you,”
    my mother always chanted this quote to me, now I finally know what it meant. I personally regretted what I have done and my decision of being Ricky's friend, much less having drank so many glasses of that disgusting beer. I will never touch that atrocious beverage again in my life.

  3. I ended up being banned from driving for 5 years, while Ricky was crying as her leg began to hurt. I still could not figure out why I was I banned and not Ricky, he was the one driving, he was the one who got drunk and hit another car.Why did I get banned?He was driving half way then I passed out and "bang!". Up to this day, the police and my parents knew the truth but I was drunk that time. I could not figure up till this day...

  5. Persuasive Essay Conclusion

    The evidence is overwhelming: the cost of driving a vehicle, both monetarily and environmentally, is outweighing the benefits. We can no longer in good faith support something that is so destructive of the environment. At five dollars per gallon in some areas, we need to ask ourselves if our dependence on cars is merely a result of our own laziness. The bicycle is truly the most efficient means of commuting if we would just take the energy to do so. Saving money while saving the planet is surely enough reason to sway a person without even mentioning the health benefits. Some will never be convinced, but every little bit helps.

  8. Analysing the essay

    To conclude, Coco Chanel was, in her own way, a liberator of women. She released them from the bounds of the corset, which greatly limited a woman’s physical movement and served as a restraint upon women in general society. While women in America were fighting for the vote, they were doing so in outfits fit for revolutionaries. A dropped waist and soft fabrics helped women focus less on their own physical discomfort and more on what they were trying to achieve. They were granted the opportunity to enjoy the same luxury as men: the luxury of comfort. Chanel’s refusal to conform initiated a movement that would see generation after generation of women using fashion as a way to express themselves, rather than attempting to fit themselves into an unrealistic ideal.

  9. Cold sweat ran through my spine, thinking that I would not be able to be the school's track team captain. Then I opened my eyes. What I saw was my white room ceiling as usual. I gave a quick look at my leg and was relieved that my it was safe and sound. Then giving a second thought: Is this the reality? Or was I dreaming in the hospital? I became confused. However, one thing I was sure. I would never, ever repeat this mistake in my life.

    1. I used a combination of 'moral' and 'inconclusive (cliff-hanger)' method.

  10. ''Every mistake is a lesson,"
    My parents always emphasise this to me. The consequences of looking "cool" has caused me a leg, worries to my parent and Ricky getting suspended from driving. The mistake of drinking has caused these accidents to become a lesson, a lesson that i can never forget.

  11. The After-the-Fact Ending

    After the incident, I was unable regain back the trust that were lost through the series of events. The hatefulness that I had towards beer was unsatisfiable, even thinking about it would trigger it. Only that now I am to babysit my sister and stay at home on Saturdays as to not get into trouble. Should this happen once more i will not forgive myself for bringing grief to my parents. I just hope one day they would trust me again.

  12. When I came to, I was being shaken by a woman with a familiar face by my bed. It was my mother. She said that I had been asleep for at least 4 hours and that I needed to finish my Science homework because it was getting late. I sleepily followed her and felt that my lips were wet. I licked it and tasted the disgusting fermented malted barely that I only 'dreamed' that I drank. Was it a dream or was it real? I thought to myself.
    I am using the mysterious ending type.

  16. I was foolish to lose my parent's trust so easily and swore to never do such a ridiculous ever again. And I finally understood my mother's favourite saying 'trust... a hard thing earn, but simple enough to lose it.' looking back on the acts, I promised myself to change my habits and to babysit my sister for the next two years.

  19. In life, there is no re-wind button my mother usually says to me. I really regretted my actions of drinking those glasses of beer. Now my actions had brought me to my consequences. My opportunity for going for the track and field events. Not only that, I had also lost my parents’ trust. Since that day one, I vowed to myself to never drink beer ever again.

  20. As I opened my eyes from my memory land, all I saw was my handicapped leg lying lifelessly on the sofa making me regret my actions on the day I got into that horrible incident. I dragged my body out of sleeping mode as I watched the sun set down hill leaving me with some questions in my head"What will happen to me?""How are my parents going to forgive me?" and all this incident happened in a day "What could happen next?"

  21. Title:Helping a Blind Man


    I can’t image being deaf and blind. You would be so helpless and dependent on other people. Can you imagine going home like that every day: walking a block, then waiting for someone to help you get across the street, then walking another block, and waiting, relying on the kindness of strangers? After this incident, I realized how blessed I am. I should cherish every day and do my best to help the people who need help in my life.
