January 25th, 2013. I’m on my “straight guy” Facebook profile. I check the news feed and see many posts about my dad saying “Hope you feel better” and “God please help him”. To me he was sick, so I ask my mom why everyone was so worried. She told me that my dad was in the hospital which got me even more worried. She told me that he was not feeling very well. I was convinced by my own mind that he was going to heal from the sickness I was told he had.
However shocking and unusual the ancient story of Gilgamesh may first seem, it is actually the archetypal Epic. The structure for an archetypal Epic is: unusual circumstances of birth, leaves family and lives with others, traumatic event leads to quest, special weapon supernatural help, proves himself on quest, journey and unhealable wound, atonement with father, spiritual apotheoses. However The Epic of Gilgamesh may not follow this structure completely, it is still the archetypal Epic.

In this project, you start by opening the Scratch program. You have to learn to use Scratch first. Make your own backgrounds at Stage and either import or create your own sprite. Give them things to do like speak, think, make noise, move and lots of other things. You will have to assign these things to a specific sprite. You will have to give the background something like switching its “costume”. To make a continuous conversation one after another, you will have to use hats and to broadcast things to make it work well.
Introduction: This is a story about a freshmen high schooler named Go Dok Mi from Seoul, Korea.

I am reading a book called the Tent by Gary Paulsen. I think it’s pretty good, it’s about a teenage boy name Steven and his father. Steven’s mother apparently ran off with some guy shortly after Steven was born. Still I think even though Steven’s father keep telling Steven “your mother has gone off with a ... well ... a friend” I think he is old enough to know what his father means by that. On top of that they are poor. Living in a ten- year- old rented trailer in a trailer park.

One dark, gloomy night there was a little girl playing in her backyard near the woods, named Sally. Sally had been outside for several hours just playing with her dolls when suddenly she saw a tall, skinny man approaching her. She didn't have time to go back to her house and there had been reports of a tall man abducting children near her neighborhood so she did the first thing that came to mind, she ran without thinking into the woods, where she thought she would be able to get away. After several minutes of running, Sally turned around to see if she had escaped.
It was 3 in the morning on a Saturday night. Jessica and her boyfriend Tanner were driving home from a party they had attended. It was Jessica’s first time she had been out after her curfew and she was petrified to go home to her furious mother. “ Let’s take a shortcut,” she said, pointing down a narrow, sinister street that went through an eerie forest. She had been down this same road only once before, and she was unenthusiastic to drive down it again, but she had to get home as soon as possible. They took a left onto the street and made their way down its gravelly path.
As the leaves rustled outside, Jessica couldn't help but wonder who, or what, could be out there and immediately regretted letting her father leave for his night shift. Ever since the murderer had showed up, Jessica’s dad, the town sheriff, had been working every hour he possibly could in order to catch the murderer wreaking havoc on the town and especially Jessica’s neighborhood. In the past three weeks there had been three murders. Each killing getting closer and closer to Jessica’s house.
When I awoke, I couldn't help but feel that something was wrong. I felt a sharp pain in my head as i got up off the cold,hard floor and I couldn't remember where I was or how I got there. When my eyes finally adjusted to the darkness i saw a light flickering in the distance, urging me to come closer. As I walked down what appeared to be a hallway I started to notice the sloshing of some kind of liquid on the ground. As i bent down to investigate I immediately knew what it was. The red color and metallic smell left me no other explanation.
