Mt. Everest

These photos represent the tone of the essay Mt. Everest because it is a happy story. In the essay Mt. Everest Eric Weihenmayer is trying to be the first blind person to reach the top of Mt. Everest. In the end he reaches the top and becomes the first blind person to get to the top. The essay has a happy tone.

Digger Wasp

I would probably rather spend time studying the wasp rather than the spider. The reason I would rather study the wasp is becuse from what I read so far the wasp seems to be pretty intresting. Could you imagine seeing a wasp 2 inches long? That would be crazy! They also burrow holes into the ground the diameter of a quarter and some of the holes can be up to 24 inches into the ground. Then they paralyze insects and bring them into the hole and lay their eggs on them.

The most challenging thing I ever had to do was play basketball against Onalaska at the state tournament in Stevens Point. They were a really good team and were really hard to beat. The game was close the whole way but we ended up loosing to them by a few points. They ended up winning the whole tournament. So, we did pretty good against them because they were one of the best teams in the state.

One person that inspires me in my life is Duane Wade. The reason he inspires me is because he is a really good basketball player and I want to be as good as him someday. He works really hard at practices and never gets into trouble so he can play in every game. He is the starting point guard for the Miami heat. I also am a starting point guard so we play the same positions which inspires me to be like him. He is a really nice guy and has donated to many charities in his life time. I really want to be like him some day!
