#### Life In the Day of

Life in the Day Of Finally as Sarah Michelle Gellar is about to take the last piece of her clothing off, "BEN GET UP NOW" "BUT IT'S ONLY BLOODY WELL FIVE TO SEVEN" "GET UP YOU'LL BE LATE" "FINE JUST GIVE ME 5 MINUTE MORE SLEEP." Eventually I did get up due to the fact that I couldn't get back to sleep. No thanks to the bleeding witch I mean. So I slowly climbed down from my chamber which I call me bed. It takes me a while to get down because my bed is about six foot high quite literally. Then I have the most enjoyable task of looking around the house for all the different pieces of my uniform, which my mother couldn't be bothered to put away. Well I suppose that will have to do for the start of my English work because I only had to write the beginning of it, "BEN AREN'T YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE YET", "NO MOTHER!" "WELL BLOODYWELL HURRY UP AND GET OUT, NOW!" "FINE I WILL." "OH AND BY THE WAY CAN I HAVE SOME EXTRA MONEY" "GET OUT NOW" As usual I had to run because I am always late. I am meant to be there for quarter to eight but ninety nine times out of a hundred I am there for ten too. "Hi Ben", Says Thomas in a ridiculous American accent, "Hello Thomas", I said in a normal Geordie type of accent. Peacock did not say anything because he was to busy listening to his Walkman as usual he was listening to Blink182 so there won't be much conversation coming

#### The investigation of coin combinations

The investigation of coin combinations In this investigation we had to try and find out all the different ways of paying for phone calls with different value coins. We started off with 10p and 20p's and worked out all the combinations using them to make a pound. I did all the values up to a pound aswell so I could work out a formula. Combination for 10p: 10p For 20p:10+10, 20 For 30p: 10+10+10, 20+10, 10+20 For 40p: 10+10+10+10+10, 20+10+10, 10+20+10, 10+10+20, 20+20 And so on. I got this table of results. As you can see there is no pattern that is because these results follow the Fabernacci sequence where the previous 2 values e.g 5+8 added together equal the next value, 13. With this in mind you can predict that the next value will be 55+89=144 To see if other values of coins did this I tried it with 10p and 30p's. This doesn't follow the Fibernacci sequence in the early values only in the later ones like70, 80 and 90p I used other values of coins and came up with this graph. This is the graph I came up with as you can see It doesn't follow a set pattern, only the 10p 20p combinations follow the Fibernacci sequence the rest seem to be irregular. I did not manage to find an nth term for any of the coin combinations but you can use the graph to find out values. That proves that there is a linear equation the equals the corresponding line on the graph but I have

#### The Mysterious Train.

Birun Patel English GCSE Coursework Creative Writing- The Mysterious Train I used to rely on trains very often on my way to work, so I was familiar with every sound down to the last detail. As soon as I reached the platform I could gain a sniff of the damp electrical smell which always wafted straight up my nose from the rails which where 20 to 30 years old with thousands of cigarette butts underneath. I could sense that my train was approaching just by the tone of the chitterling sound that would disperse from the rails and the rail light changing from amber to green rapidly. I would even know the exact place to stand in order to be right in front of the doors when the train came to standstill. It became a routine. Two stops and I was at Baker Street, it all seemed too quick . I would barely get a chance to read the first paragraph of my Daily Mail. Nevertheless, at work I would just take an extra long lunch break and take a seat in the park whilst eating my cheese and Branston Pickle sandwich. My shift was usually 9am to 6:30pm, but it would vary depending on how much clients I had to attend. Luckily, today I only had four clients, so I finished at what I call a breathtaking 3:00pm. I rushed to the train station to get the twenty past three train. I ran and ran I managed to get there for quarter past three , by now I was exhausted and out of breath as I

#### Using Counselling skills

Using Counselling skills Before I started I went over a contract and I told Jillian how I was using the content of the session to write an assignment for the course that I am doing at college and that only myself, my course tutor and maybe an outside assessor for the course would see what was written about the session and that she could read the assignment before I showed anyone else. I stated that almost everything that was said to me would be confidential, although working along the B.A.C.P ethical guidelines, confidentiality may have to be broken if it became clear that serious harm may be caused to others or herself. We agreed that this would be a one off session that would last around 30 minutes. I explained a little about Person-Centred counselling to Jillian, I explained that counselling is a way of using a relationship, in this case between myself (acting as the counsellor) to facilitate the development of the Jillian (the client). It works on the assumption that if I am able to offer Jillian a relationship characterised by empathy, acceptance and genuineness, and if Jillian is able to perceive and appreciate these qualities, then she will feel safe enough to disclose hidden aspects of her self which could be upsetting to her. The fact that I can accept these previously hidden parts of Jillian's self (unconditional positive regard), helps her to accept them too.

#### The Importance of Patterns in Taekwondo.

The Importance of Patterns in Taekwondo By Philip Hines A pattern is defined as "a set of attack and defence movements against one or more imaginary opponents". In taekwondo however, patterns much more than just a series of movements. Often seen as the more traditional side of taekwondo, all syllabus patterns are linked to important events or people in Korea's history. Not only may the number of moves in the pattern or the pattern's diagram be significant, I think that the pattern's interpretation is as important as the pattern itself. Knowledge of the interpretation of the pattern helps to give students an understanding of the pattern and an insight to the correct frame of mind to perform the pattern in, meaning that the correct mental attitude towards the pattern is vital. The need to learn the interpretations also helps to discipline the mind of the student and portray the student's attitude towards taekwondo. I think that without the pattern interpretations and historical links, patterns would be without meaning and therefore lacking the passion and determination needed to perform the pattern properly. Patterns also serve to test the ability of a student at taekwondo without actually fighting anybody. Regular practise of patterns helps with the development of strong techniques, co-ordination, balance and stamina but more importantly it helps create a disciplined and

#### The Ouija Board

The Ouija Board While searching for her school pictures, Janet discovered this board in her attic. Although it was covered in a thick layer of dust, the original plastic casing still covered the box. Without telling her father, she brought it back down to her room, later deciding to bring it with her to work as a way to kill the time at the greasy Mexican fast food hut where she worked on the graveyard shift. At midnight they locked the doors to the store; only the drive-thru remained open. Janet tore off the plastic wrapping and removed the board from the box and placed it on a table by the window. Nelson, her co-worker, grimaced. "You don't believe in that stuff, do you?" She grabbed his arm and dragged him to the table. "Come on, it'll be fun." On the base of the board were written the letters of the alphabet in two rows of thirteen, the numbers zero through nine, and the words, "YES", "NO" and "GOODBYE". The message indicator was a triangular piece of plastic with a stake protruding from each vertex. "How's the board work?" Nelson asked. She was surprised that he had never play with one before. "It is supposed to have a spirit trapped inside it that will answer our questions." "So what do you do with it?" "You ask it questions." "Like what?" "Like...will I win this week's lottery?" The pointer snaked its way across the board, hesitating on the 'Yes'

#### Gone to Soon.

Gone to Soon I can't think, I can't speak, I'm numb inside, there is no beginning or end just this intolerable anger, and never-ending pain! I can't take this any more, if he doesn't stop; I'm going to have to hit him. There will be no question in the matter of what will happen to me, but just that one instant when nothing will matter anymore, because I will have got even. However, what he will do to me will be unimaginable! I'm 15, and have been picked on every year that I have been here at Saddlebunch Grammar School. Everyday I wake up and just imagine the unbearable torture he is going to put me through for another unliveable day. My parents don't know, there not at home long enough to see me, or the bruises he gives me. Once he had a metal bar that wrapped around his fingers, and when he punched me in the jaw, that was more than I could handle. I felt a crack, heard a large crunching sound and, black. I woke up in the nurse's office. Apparently, he had brought me in saying that I had walked into a lamppost, and he had found me unconscious on the floor. The nurse knew this was a lie, but there was nothing she could do about it. He blamed me for letting my jaw break; I was put in the bin and left in the middle of the playground with sellotape holding the lid shut. They timed it so that when everyone went to class they would leave me out there. I could be there for hours

#### America's Obsession

Lauren Minchella AP English Language Mrs. Provost November 8, 2006 Barbie: America's Obsession When you picture the perfect body, what image do you get in your mind? Skinny, big-boobed, tiny waist, nice butt...Barbie. If she were to be enlarged to human size, she'd have a 39-inch bust, a 19-inch waist, and a 33-inch buttocks. She'd be over 7 feet tall and weigh an impressive 115 pounds. She's perfect! She has no body hair whatsoever, long, beautiful blonde hair, bright blue eyes, plump lips, long legs, and tiny feet. Since the 1950's, Barbie has been a symbol for females everywhere. She has become more than the doll that Ruth Handler once envisioned as a simple plaything for her daughter, Barbara (the doll's namesake.) Over the years, Barbie has had over 75 careers; she has been everything from a registered nurse to a figure skater to a rock star. Barbie from the beginning represented what the American teenager should be. The advertisements presented Barbie as a living teenager that most young girls would want to imitate. Barbie started off with a sideways glance, heavy makeup and numerous different hair colors, and eventually evolved into the blonde bombshell we all know today. Soon Ken, Barbie's "main squeeze" was introduced, later Midge, Barbie's best friend, then Skipper, Barbie's little sister. And many other different members of the Barbie family started to pop up.
