The Lion King (Hero’s Journey) 5 paragraph

The Lion King

The ordinary world of Simba is the time of his birth. There he had fun with his friends and family when he was a cub. He assumed his father will always be with him and thought that he could do whatever he wants to do. His society also expects him to be a king. Simba was also loved by his friends and family, so he thought that everything will last forever.

While Simba was playing with his friend “Nala” as a cub he accidentally went to the hyena’s territory (call to adventure). The hyenas then tried to attack him but his father came at the right time and saved him and his friend. He then meets scar the first time and thought that he is a good uncle (tests). In the movie The death of the king/Mufasa is one of the most iconic moments in the movie, after saving son Simba from a stampede of wildebeest, Mufasa is sent falling to his death by scheming brother “Scar” more strikingly, instead of gorging his claws into his brother’s paws, Scar hits Mufasa in the face to send him falling down to the large her of wildebeest in a stampede.  (refusing the call) Simba saw his father fall to the stampede and he got chased out by the hyenas.

After the hyenas chased Simba out, he fell down a hill and woke up in the middle of a sandy place. He was being attacked by birds and two other animals appeared and saved him. Simba fell asleep again and woke up in the place of the two animals that saved him earlier (crossing the threshold). The two animals that saved him are named Timon and Pumbaa a meerkat and a warthog the two made him adapt to the new environment, Simba grows up in the oasis with his two new friends and other animals in their oasis, living a carefree life under the motto “Hakuna Matata” (“no worries” in Swahili) by eating new things and stayed by his friend’s side. Simba then grew up after a few years with his friends (allies) and adapted.

When Simba was playing with his friends, a lion tried to attack his friends and saved them. Simba rescues Timon and Pumbaa from a hungry lioness, who turns out to be Nala. She and Simba reunite and fall in love, and she urges him to return home, telling him that the Pride Lands have become a drought-stricken wasteland under Scar’s reign. Simba then met this monkey that knows him when he was a cub and told him that it is Nala that gave him the courage to go inside the cave and she became his mentor. Simba then had a fight with Scar and the hyenas, when he came back to take the territory again. His other allies also joined the fight.  Simba then got his territory (reward) back and lived peacefully with his family.

In conclusion, this movie is using the hero’s journey formula. He was born in a family where everyone is living peacefully and had many conflicts with Scar and the hyenas. Simba also made new friends which became his allies throughout the movie.  He then came back to take the territory back and won with the help of his family and allies and lived peacefully.

 

 

 

Dream house

My dream house will have three features. Modern wooden features, it will have modern like but wooden features. The house will be in Switzerland and it will be my vacation spot when I have a company.  I will also own horses to be able to travel the land near the mountains.  I would also add some swimming pools and jacuzzi inside the house. My dream house wouldn’t be complete without any pets of course.

In the morning I would enjoy a warm cup of tea/coffee and watching the sunrise in the mountains. The house will have a second floor where I could keep all of my important documents and books. There would also be a stable for the horses that I would own. I would also adopt many dogs and cats to accompany me while I am there and get them a room for themselves.

Switzerland is a mountainous Central European country, home to numerous lakes, villages and the high peaks of the Alps. Its cities contain medieval quarters, with landmarks like capital Bern’s Zytglogge clock tower and Lucerne’s wooden chapel bridge. The country is also known for its ski resorts and hiking trails. Banking and finance are key industries, and Swiss watches and chocolate are world-renowned. The reason why I wanted to live in Switzerland because there are high peaks and beautiful lakes that you could enjoy looking at in the morning.

The dream house that I would have, will have a secret room. The secret room opens when you pull out a book and press a button in the bookshelf. It opens and will show a view of big mountains outside and would have TVs and couches. The room will look like a library because there would be many bookshelves full of books. I would travel and buy books I am interested in reading and put it there.

In conclusion, I would live in a place where it is quiet, full of trees, and peaceful. The place that I would be living in is Switzerland. The house will contain many different kinds of accessories like secret passageways for different rooms that I only want for myself. I would also have many pets to accompany me while I am reading or watching TV.  There would also be a large lot for myself and my pets to be walking or riding horses. The house that I would like to live in forever is a house that is always peaceful and when you open the door or windows you could hear the sound of birds and falls.

Rosiness or Gloomy Gray: On Viewing the World (5 paragraph)

Rosiness is not a worse windowpane than gloomy gray when viewing the world.

-Grace Paley: What do you gain when you choose to look on the bright side, when you choose to expect the best instead of the worst? Looking at the bright side of things helps us perceive the thing that we do.

Rosiness

There are many quotes that have many different kinds of meanings.  Do you wonder “what does that quote mean?”, well I am here to explain it to you. I chose the first quote by Grace Paley she is an American author, poet, writer, political activist, and a teacher. She made different kinds of quotes and writes books. In every poem and quotes I have read there are many meanings that it has, like the Road not Taken, and Annabel Lee, which are my favorites. “Well, do you wonder what meaning this quote has?”, I have an explanation to give you right now.

This quote by Grace Paley has a whole lot of different meaning to it. It also helps us understand different kinds of meanings for this quote. The first that I am going to be mentioning is the term rosiness, it means that just by looking at the positive or bright side of things does not mean that it will help us to look at the positive things around us makes us be a happy person and expecting the worst possible thing on something will just drag you down.  Having positive thinking helps us see nature more and notice many different kinds of decisions we have made in life.

Positive thinking empowers you and makes you feel stronger and more confident. Positive thinking has strong effects on your personality, health, level of energy, and your creativity. The more positive and optimistic you are, the happier you will be in life. In fact, positive thinking is the key to a longer life, scientists have found. According to an article, I have read. Positive thinking often starts with self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of a lack of information. If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, you’re likely an optimist — someone who practices positive thinking.

It’s unclear why people who engage in positive thinking experience these health benefits. One theory is that having a positive outlook enables you to cope better with stressful situations, which reduces the harmful health effects of stress on your body. It’s also thought that positive and optimistic people tend to live healthier lifestyles, they get more physical activity, follow a healthier diet, and don’t smoke or drink alcohol in excess.

We can understand that the research is clear. It really does pay to be positive and the benefits include enhanced health and longevity, happiness, career advancement, athletic performance, team building, and financial success. Being positive is not just a nice way to live. It’s the way to live. If we always look on the bright side of things it helps us understand more the things around us. We can conclude that negative thinking is going to affect us negatively too. Looking for the bright side of every decision you made makes you feel relieved and makes us understand the new ways of making a decision.
