From the moment I arrive at Orlando Florida’s International Airport I am thrilled to be back to my favorite place in the world. A thirty-minute drive away is a place called the International Drive; this is where I stay during my time in Florida. Orlando's 14.5 mile long International Drive is a place I know only to well. Having been fortunate enough to stay on the International Drive several times I am aware of all of the great things it has to offer. It is a place that makes me feel such happiness whenever I visit, a place that holds fond memories and a place I will continue to visit for as long as I possibly can.

The International Drive is always busy. The majority of people are tourists staying in the area. Many people uses this areas to stay as it is in the heart of Orlando and is ideally situated close to Walt Disney World Resorts and other theme parks such as Sea World and Busch Gardens. There is never a dull moment on the I-Drive. From the moment you leave the hotel you are surrounded by a great deal of things to see and do. Amongst these things are a fantastic water park, arcades, numerous adventure golf courses, museums, restaurants, dinner shows and so much more. There are plenty of attractions to keep you busy plus, at each end of the road, some great outlets for shopping. The majority of the things to do are within walking distance but alternatively tourists can take advantage of the I-ride Trolleys. These are very cheap little green buses that have marked stops dotted along the drive and they are never far away from wherever it is you want to go.

During my holiday there is one place I never fail to return to. The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show is spectacular and never fails to amaze me. I have seen this show a countless number of times and it's still funny. Over the years new tricks and acts have been added but even the same ones continue…...

These Things I Know

...may sound, I blinked and I was 18 years old, I blinked and I was 30, and I blinked and now I am 50. That is how fast it feels. I swear my children were just born….but suddenly, they are adults. It feels like just yesterday that I was a young woman able to raise a child, work full time and take a night class all at once with ease, and now I’m a grandma with a good few aches and pains, looking at retirement plans. Very rarely do we think about our life’s purpose or reflect on the big picture when we are growing up or even when we are in our 20’s or 30’s. I’m sure it happens at different ages for different people…maybe some never do, I don’t know. I believe I started “getting it” when I was in my 40’s. By this…I mean that I truly realized what was important in life and what not to sweat about. Losing family members had a lot to do with it. It was hard enough when I lost Grandma and Grandma ...parents are security blankets that are very, very hard to lose. But when Uncle Bob died…I felt a major change in my soul. It was as if I’d been on a spinning top my whole life and then it just stopped. Everything was suddenly right there in front of me to deal with…think about, from my childhood to the present. It was as if I was seeing things with new eyes…and it wasn’t a bad experience at all. Looking back, I knew that I had made mistakes, but also that I had done the best I could with what I knew at the time and with the resources that I had. I was proud that I had......

A Clean, Well-Lighted Place

...Jorge Tapia ENC 1102 Prof. Dawn 11/06/12 A Clean, Well-Lighted Place By Ernest Hemingway Does one's purpose in life diminish after there is nothing left in life to look forward to? Ernest Hemingway's short story "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" addresses this question through the character of the older waiter, a man pondering the meaning of life. The older waiter observes the old man and comes to the conclusion that without a motivation to live, one wanders in a world of nothingness. I am going to discuss the analysis of the major characters in the story “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place.” First of all, there are three main characters: The older waiter, the younger waiter, and the old man. I believe Hemingway is attempting to make the characters show different ideas in which he conveys different personalities in the characters. Furthermore each character represents the ideas that Hemingway had about the youth, mid-age, and the old. The first main character in the short story is the young waiter; seems like a cocky and uncaring man he cheerfully admits that he isn’t lonely and is anxious to return home where his wife is. He doesn’t care that the people in the café use it as a refuge for those who feel alone. The young waiter is rude to the old man because he wants to close the café early. He doesn’t seem to realize that he won’t be young forever. In addition to the story the young waiter represents the youth that is at conflict with the older generations. The young......

A Clean Well Lighted Place

...rather than going home to bed. But there is more to the older waiter’s “insomnia,” as he calls it, than just loneliness. An unnamed, unspecified malaise seems to grip him. This malaise is not “a fear or dread,” as the older waiter clarifies to himself, but an overwhelming feeling of nothingness—an existential angst about his place in the universe and an uncertainty about the meaning of life. Whereas other people find meaning and comfort in religion, the older waiter dismisses religion as “nada”—nothing. The older waiter finds solace only in clean, well-lit cafés. There, life seems to make sense. The older waiter recognizes himself in the old man and sees his own future. He stands up for the old man against the younger waiter’s criticisms, pointing out that the old man might benefit from a wife and is clean and neat when he drinks. The older waiter has no real reason to take the old man’s side. In fact, the old man sometimes leaves the café without paying. But the possible reason for his support becomes clear when the younger waiter tells the older waiter that he talks like an old man too. The older waiter is aware that he is not young or confident, and he knows that he may one day be just like the old man—unwanted, alone, and in despair. Ultimately, the older waiter is reluctant to close the café as much for the old man’s sake as for his own because someday he’ll need someone to keep a café open late for him. The Younger Waiter Brash and insensitive, the younger waiter......

A Clean Well-Lighted Place

...In “A Clean and Well-Lighted Place” there isn’t much of a story. There isn’t a looming conflict that requires the attention of its characters, there’s really not even a protagonist and an antagonist, there’s just nothingness and how its characters relate to it. There are a mere three real characters in the entire story, the younger waiter, the older waiter, and an old man. The younger waiter and older waiter, and how they relate to that nothingness is the main theme of the story, with the old man being the subject of their conversations. While the younger waiter attacks the old man in his talk with the older waiter, the older waiter doesn’t attack the old man, instead he defends him, because he can sympathize with him. The older waiter knows loneliness and despair, which is what separates these two characters. The story opens with the two waiters speaking to one another about an old man who’s drinking brandy at the cafe which they work. It’s learned through the waiters’ conversation that the old man attempted to commit suicide by hanging himself but his niece cut him down. It’s said that she cut him down for “fear for his soul.” It was as though they don’t even care about his current life, but his life after death. The younger waiter cannot comprehend the reason for suicide when you have money, like the old man does. To the young waiter, money can and will solve all problems. The young waiter is incapable of comprehending the idea of committing suicide over the......

Place You Know Well

...During my time as a child, I remember visiting so many places with my family throughout Southern California. One of the best memories was when I visited Lake Arrowhead. Located in the beautiful mountains of San Bernardino, Lake Arrowhead is a tiny city where every family would enjoy living in. Not only is Lake Arrowhead Village a great place to live but great place to enjoy nature’s beauty at any time of the day. I remember Lake Arrowhead for its beautiful scenery, it is family-oriented, and it has many outdoor activities. While visiting Lake Arrowhead in the winter time, I fell head over heels with the beautiful scenery that nature brought upon my eyes. As I arrived to the house in the evening, I looked up and I was able to see the stars that lit up the sky above me. As I walk down to the lake, I was able to hear the crickets’ chirping and the owls hooting as they hear the crackling of the snow that I’m stepping upon. As I look through the horizon of the snow, I saw the never ending slope falling towards the lake that apparently was frozen. As I sat on one of the unfrozen steps, I looked up once again, and I see the beautiful full moon sitting on a cloud. The stars shined even brighter when the moon glistened its light down to Earth. The lake looked really calm and I only saw a couple of ripples being caused by a female duck and her ducklings swimming in the middle of the lake. In the morning when I looked outside the window, the sun shined beautifully through the icicles......

I Know I Hurt You

...“ I know I hurt you, but I was forced .please forgive me “. All my way back to home these words were playing football in my mind. It was 20th of December I still remember the day .the warm wind brushing through my cheeks, the engine roaring, booming music from my stereo of our car, the bursts laughter and gossips from some of the best people in my life. Looking at the dancing wheat fields out of my window, the road was quiet as a statue. “BEEP BEEEEP” hey! Watch it, my father yelled at the man who was over taking our car.

...with a film adaptation of a book, their complaints tend to lie in the tendency of the creators of the film to change elements of the story: plot, character, and the like. It would seem, then, that the best way to make a successful adaptation of a novel would be to just stay as true as possible to every detail mentioned in the book. However, staying as true as possible to plot points, character type, and the like may be the best way to a horrendous adaptation. In moving from the printed page to the silver screen, moviemakers must be aware that they are not simply reproducing a narrative&emdash;they are changing the medium by which the narrative is presented. Oddly enough, cinema lends itself easily to some of the tenets of writing well: namely, the command of, "show, don't tell." In cinema, there is no option, really, of telling, "the details are not asserted as such by a narrator but simply presented." (Chatman 406). The use of a voiceover, of course, is an option, but even the voice of an omniscient narrator cannot stop the viewer from seeing the images and interpreting what he sees. In movies, the viewer does his own telling. The very nature of The Big Sleep, then, makes adaptation difficult. The entire narrative is described by a character within the story space: Marlowe tells us the entire story. Our view of the plot, then, is clouded by Marlowe's sight. Being a character within the story space, he has his own feelings and his own reactions to what......

What I Know

...life skill, but the fact is I obviously don’t and neither does anybody else. I’m here to write about what I do know, such as what I do at work, know when to shut my mouth, historical events, and etcetera. I’m not big on psychology in a broad range, but I do enjoy abnormal psychology and learning about anti-social behavioral people that make-up society. I started working at an airport after I graduated high school back in May of 2015. My job seems pretty simple in what I am told to do, but the work is a pain in the ass. I clean planes for a bunch of rich bastards that do nothing it seems except fly planes and go to swinger clubs. I also mow the airport mainly in the summer and not so much in the winter. Mowing is my favorite part because I can go do my own thing and not listen to dumbass Bill (who just got fired recently, Thank God) rant about how Fox News is what kids need to watch to learn something. I’m not a liberal, but I hate Fox News by the way. All Fox News does is rant about something non-stop and repeat the same thing over and over. Well anyways, the job pays the bills and that is what matters. School is very important as you may know, but at the same time homework sucks. My favorite area of learning is about history. Partly due to the fact I can easily memorize historical events. Another area of what I know but strongly dislike is math. Math is one of those things that I’m good at and hate, but do it anyway because I know how. I know that abnormal psychology......

...playing cards and Monopoly, turns toward the day-room door” (Kesey 15). The lives of people who live in the mental institution are same as those who live in prison, because the patients do not have the freedom to do what they want to do. Instead, they have to listen to the nurse’s commands. Ratched convinces the patients by saying, “I tell you this hoping you will understand that it is entirely for your own good that we enforce discipline and order” (Kesey 171). There were a few notable experiments that occurred during the 1950s American society. One of them was the syphilis treatment experiment. Black men were recruited to test a new treatment for syphilis. But they only treated a portion of the participants, and didn't tell the others that they would go untreated. Those untreated thought that they were receiving treatment. The hospital staff basically treated black people like lab rats. Although people had been told the treatment was good for them, no one would know if it was the truth. Same as the asylum in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, everyone in the mental institution has to listen to the nurse and take the medicine every day, but no one knows what they are taking and if it is good for their health. When nurse Ratched asks the patients to share their stories, she thinks this is one of the therapies for her patients. However, she does not care whether the patients are satisfied with this treatment; she does not give the patients the choice. When Ratched asks the......

A Clean Well-Lighted Place

...“A Clean Well-Lighted Place” Analysis “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place”, by Ernest Hemmingway, is a story of two waiters working late one night in “A Clean, Well-Lighted” cafe. The image of the café is central to the story; we get a feeling that outside this place the world is chaos. The story opens with two waiters discussing an old man who frequents the café where they work. He constantly stays late into the night drinking. One of the waiters, a younger man, expresses his dislike of the old man while the older waiter sympathizes and relates to the old man. The younger waiter wants the old man to go home while the older waiter doesn’t seem to care one way or another. This story is a tale of despair and loneliness and how different people deal with it. The older waiter defends the old man him because he can relate to his despair. Loneliness and old age are the common bonds that the older waiter shares with the old man. In time he will be old, unable to work and feel lonely because his lack friends. The old man seems to think there is no meaning to his life. It is like he has given up. There is no good or bad; no right or wrong, the only thing that may matter is making what time he has left somewhat bearable. The fact that he gets drunk every night and stays late at the café shows he has nothing better to do with his last bit of time. Depression puts a negative spin on everything, including the way you see yourself, the situations you encounter, and your expectations for the......

Me as I Know Her

...Me As I Know Her When I think of my life as a child and now as a parent. My views on life have changed to think of how to become a better person and parent. I will briefly discuss some of my life experiences that shaped me into the person that I am. I will also analyze some of the theories that apply to psychological development and how some of these theories pertain to my life. I grew up in a single-family home with my mother finishing school and taking care of my older sister, older brother, my baby sisters and I. A man who was absent from my life, that was my father I did not know. My parents got divorced when I was just an infant. I feel this is where my trust issues come from. I also believe what Erik Erikson theories “in stage one, infants must learn to trust their parents”(Witt & Mosser, 2010, 2.3) which teaches a child to trust others easily. I spent majority of my time with my grandparents who I looked up to. I took my papa as my father because that is all I knew as a child so the few times my father did call I just felt that this was a just a man with the title my daddy. On television I had seen that parents were together like on the Cosby Show and Leave It to Beaver so I did not understand why my mom and dad were not together. Growing up being the middle child of five children by my mother. Also having a younger sister from my father. My younger sister by my father I did not grow up with so I did not know much about her. As adults we have......
