Throughout the 17 years I have been on this earth, I have encountered many amazing friends, each of whom has influenced me in some way. The friend whom I love and cherish most, though, is not even a human being, but a horse. I call him Teddy Bear, or Teddy for short. Before I had him, I owned a number of other horses, each very special, but as difficult as it is to admit, Teddy is my favorite.
I saw Teddy for the first time two months ago. A young boy brought him over from the Netherlands but had grown too tall and was forced to sell him. Teddy arrived at my barn before anyone even knew he was for sale. Although I was not in the market for a new horse, my trainer immediately recognized his

here, but there are probably enough people and buildings to generate at least a small sense of claustrophobia in someone who is used to an open landscape. Wayland is a very intellectual community, and virtually all of the adults are well educated and many hold a professional degree. Most of the high school students are diligent about their studies, and just about everybody lives a comfortable, safe life here. Unfortunately, there isn’t much excitement in this town, and unless one stays busy with a hobby, job, or other activity, it can be downright boring.
My friend, Bob was much different than anyone I knew in Wayland. I’d have to say some of my friends from Wayland would probably

Have you ever had that one special friend that you knew would be there for you through thick and thin? That special friend, who can read your thoughts, finish your sentences, and make you smile when you are feeling blue. A friend is someone who is honest and you can trust. A friend is someone who you hang out with, and someone you rely on. Friendship is being there for someone when they need you. That person for me is my best friend Katrina. She is the kindest, sweetest person I have ever known. She will do anything for anyone.
I met Katrina when I was in the 5th grade and she was in the 6th grade. Making friends has never been easy for me but we seemed to hit it right off from the

Her. My best friend, my un-biological sister, the calmness of my drama. She has many titles to her name, well from me at least. But unfortunately bad friend is one of them. It all started last year. Our first year in a new school. Our first year in middle school. I can just remember about how we were wishing things wouldn’t change. But they did.
This past year my very best friend has treated me like dirt. I was not the wind beneath her wings, but the dirt beneath her feet. She has treated me like a no one. She has pointed out my flaws, order me around like a slave, embarrassed me to a point of no return. Yes my parents know about it, and even some friends too but they do not confront her

Friends can be described as people we like, and share a bond with. Each person has a different perception of whom they would call a ‘friend’. My dearest friend is Sara because of her loyalty, her outgoing personality, her kindness and trust. These are the qualities I look for in a true friend. People may call a lot of people their true friends but in my opinion, unless they have the characteristics that are like Sara’s, I do not believe that they are actually your friends. Sara is a loyal friend who is trustworthy, kind and overall, a really fun person. This is the reason we do everything together, and hopefully we will also continue to do so.
In the first place, Sara’s loyalty to her

The battle lines were drawn and everybody knew where they stood in the social scene and everyone was happy that way. High school rolled around and partying was a blur of "let's try this" and "I wonder what this does". Despite the personal moral degradation I experienced due to the support of the local DARE institution, I pressed on knowing that what they taught us was not the whole story.
Things were looking up and I was learning all about the capabilities of the human mind when what could possibly be dubbed as "a lysergic antidote for reality" intervened. My Friend, who won't be mentioned

Brittney and I met in a Physical Science class we had together. At first we didn't talk very much if at all, but after a while we grew on each other and stated hanging out together.

She doesn’t know this, but she changed my life. She was there for me when it seemed like no one else was. When most of my friends were dissolving around me and I just didn’t feel like I could do anything right, she was there, and she made everything seem okay. It didn’t matter that I was inevitably going to graduate with a GPA a tenth of a point lower than I wanted, or that my director told me that he was disappointed in me because I just didn’t seem focused lately, or that my other friends just weren’t talking to me anymore. It didn’t matter because she was there and she made me feel safe. She’s my best friend, and I love her and admire her for so many different reasons.

My Friend Committed Suicide, I Did Not
During Junior High I had many absolutely dire problems that were constantly on my mind. My out-of-date wardrobe continuously embarrassed me. My hair would not acquiesce to any attempted hairstyle. My parents didn't understand me, my teachers were all picking on me, and nobody really liked me for me. These beliefs were all false, of course. At the time, it never occurred to me that all my concerns and volatile emotions were "normal". I never considered that while I was going through the transition from elementary school to high school, from kid to teen, that I was creating my own world-view and that I was emotionally vulnerable to every imagined

How My Blind Friend Taught Me to See
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." Helen Keller
Twelve years ago, at the birthday party of a friend, was the first time I met somebody my own age who had a disability. He was tall for his age, thin, and wore eyeglasses, just like I did. It was this commonality that initially attracted me to him, since I didn't know very many kindergartners who wore glasses. I had begun wearing glasses to correct a case of strabismus at age two, and was able to see perfectly when I put them on. However, I was not aware of the fact that his glasses did very little to sharpen his vision, and that he was legally blind.

We were both from countries that weren’t the U.S., we had both left our regular lives far away, and we had both been crazy enough to be each other’s best friend. Even though she was from Canada and me from Argentina, and we only had one year together, you could swear that we were friends from a really long time.

In elementary school, she was in every one of my classes. During recess, we swung on the swings together and went down the slide together. We were the best of friends. Together me and Avery shared the same hobbies and disliked the same things. We loved listening to Rock-n-Roll, played softball, and got dirty. After school, we would play outside, and come home with bruises and scrapes on our hands and knees and dirt everywhere.

My heart pained as I looked in my bestfriend’s once twinkling hazel eyes that were now hollow and dull. Why were those coal colored eyes filled with hatred? I felt like a pariah but I was standing next to the person who knew me best. Why was I blamed for everything she caused? I'm a scapegoat for her many sins. I suppose I did not release I was her dumping bag, and perhaps that's my fault. Her gaze barely met mine, and avoided my yearning one.

Looking sidelong to make sure that people are watching, he picks up the half-bagel from his plate, thick with cream cheese, stands up on his chair and rubs it erotically all over the front of his pants.

I would go to school, go home afterwards and take a nap after completing my homework, and then when I would wake up, I would eat something and hang out with my friends at the park to play. Those were the days, unfortunately now it’s more like go to school, go to work, do homework, and sleep for only a little bit. But to me the thing that has changed the most since high school has been the long close friendship that I had with Rolando Martinez ‘aka Roly”.

I didn't pause to gaze down upon his broad shoulders, and thick chest. I hardly noticed the caramel color of his eyes, nor his nicely manicured goatee.
What I saw, was a broken tooth. A very tiny, short, yellowing, broken upper lateral tooth. Nice tooth, I remember thinking. Who could have known that tiny insignificant flaw was what made me take notice and start paying

The Misfortune of SilenceHello Darkness, My Old FriendTo make something as vast and all-encompassing as the image of Death is authors have generally chosen to personify it as if it was a person or an entity that we could speak with. One of the best examples of this in English literature is John Donne's Holy Sonnet X, or Death be not proud. Another good example of deaths personification lies in German literature, with the Brothers Grimm's Godfather Death. Both of these works use personification as an attempt to make dealing with the idea of death more concrete. The difference in these two works comes in the way in which death is portrayed, in Holy Sonnet X death is mocked and made impotent

People learn from a young age what friendship is or do we. Some people have experienced what a lifelong friend is. However to some friends come and go. As we go through life, it is normal to meet many people, but most of them will never be a friend. Most of the people will only be a casual acquaintance. From my experience I learned that people will come into one’s life for a reason and then as quickly as they came into a person’s life, they leave just as quickly. They leave for numerous reasons. A person may leave one’s life because they moved away to another state, town, or country; people may disappear from your life because they found a new circle of friend that may be more suitable for

Trust is like a brick wall.You build it up brick by brick, but a lie can make it all fall apart. My parents have told me, “Trust is slow to get, but quick to lose.” In other words, trust must be built up by time. Honesty is a big part of trust. Not being honest can change everything.

So many possible theories stem from just one character from a short story whether he could perhaps be death, or the devil in disguise coming to take Connie away; or perhaps just a mental creepy man coming to kidnap and rape Connie. So many things that Arnold Friend tells little vain Connie can be interpreted in either direction, it is all in how you look at it.
