Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights is a sort of a confusing story. Alot of it is a story being told inside of the story. But i'll get to that in a moment. First of all, the name you must know is Lockwood. He is the one that goes to Wuthering Heights, and is the one that the story inside the story is told to. He rents a manor named Thrushcross Grange, in England. He then meets his landlord, Heathcliff, a rich man who lives in the old manor named Wuthering Heights. In which he also meets a woman named Cathrine and a man named Hareton. They are all very cross, rude and not very sociable. So as soon as Lockwood can, He leaves Wuthering Heights and goes back to Thrushcross Grange. But to do that he had to travel through a terrible snow storm, thus, getting sick. Once back at the Grange, he asks his house keeper, Nelly Dean, if she knows anything about Heathcliff and everyone at the Heights. Turns out, she was their maid when they were younger. So she tells him her story. Heathcliff was taken in by Mr. Earnshaw, owner of Wuthering heights. Mr. Earnshaw had two children, Hindley, and Cathrine [which the aformentioned Cathrine was named after]. But Mr. Earnshaw grew to like Heathcliff better then his own son, which made Hindley act out and was terrible to Heathcliff. Although, Cathrine became best friends with Heathcliff and not too long after he came, they were inseperable. When they grow up, Earnshaw send Hindley away to college, but keeps heathcliff near him....Three years later, Mr. Earnshaw died, and Hindley inherited Wuthering Heights. He came back with a wife named, Frances. As soon as Hindley arrives he tries to get some revenge on Heathcliff for being His fathers favorite. Hindley makes Heathcliff work in the fields. But Heathcliff is still close friends with Cathrine. One night they go to Thrushcross Grange to tease Edgar and Isabella Linton. While there, Cathrine is bitten by their dog, and stays there to heal. By the time she comes home, she has developed feeling for Edgar, hence complicating hers and Heathcliffs relationship. Later, Hindleys wife Frances, dies after giving birth to a boy, which they named Hareton. Hindley become an alcoholic, and leaves Hareton in the care of Nelly. Hindley become worse and worse, and treats Heathcliff absaloutly terribly. Eventually, Cathrine, wanting to boost her social status, becomes engaged to Edar Linton, even though she loves Heathcliff. Heathcliff runs away for three years, and comes back just a little while after Cathrine and Edgar are married. He immediatly wants some revenge on all those who did him wrong, so he lends Hindley money, knowing it would deepen Hindleys debts. After Hindley dies, Heathcliff inherits Wuthering Heights, and marries Isabella Linton to put himself in the line of inheriting Thrushcross Grange. He treats Isabella VERY badly. Cathrine becomes sick, gives birth to a daughter[which they named Cathrine] and died. Heathcliff is desperate for her soul to stay on earth so he begs her to haunt him and not leave him alone. Isabella runs away to london and gives birth to a son, and named him Linton, and keeps him there. Thirteen years pass, all while Nelly takes care of Cathrines daughter. She is just like her mother, but with a better attitude. she grows up without knowedge of Wuthering Heights, until one day she wanders and meets Hareton ands they play. Isabella dies, and Linton comes to live with Heathcliff, and he treats Linton worse then he treated Isabella. Cathrine and Linton eventually become married, in which was Heathcliffs plan, so he could inherit Thrushcross Grange....Edgar dies, Then Linton dies, and Heathcliff gets the Grange and makes Cathrine be a servant. Thats where Nellys story ends when its catches up to present. Lockwood, after hearing that story, quickly leaves Thrushcross Grange. He comes back after a while to visit Nelly. She has new stuff to add. Cathrine falls in love with Hareton, Heathcliff became upsessed with Cathrines ghost, and shortly after a night walking on the moors, died. Hareton and Cathrine get married and inherit Wuthering heights.

My Philosophy

I believe in the creation theory. Only I don’t think it’s a theory, I say it’s a fact. I choose to believe that we don’t come from monkeys.

Why do I believe this? Because the first chapter in the first book of the Bible tells me where I came from…and it’s not from monkeys! We were created by God. Because He loves us.

The world is to awesome to be made just by chance, or randomly. Somebody had to set things in motion. Earth didn’t just happen to explode into a big ball of rock and lava. Water didn’t just happen to appear on the said rock and lava.

**If the big bang theory is real, then okay, but where did the gases come from that made the big bang? If evolution is real, then okay! But where did the small germ things come from, that turned into other things that turned into a monkey that turned into us???**


( How could all of that just happen?? )


**I do not believe in the big bang theory. Or evolution.**

Over the last two weeks, My parents and I had our vacation. We pretty much went everywhere. We went to Valley forge.[[there happens to be a million deer there]] We went to the Franklin Museum in Philly. We went to D.C. and went to a couple of the museums there and saw the Washington monument and the Lincoln monument. We also spent 3 days at my Grandmothers house. But sadly it did lack Me staying up late and sleeping in....Isn't that what vacations are for? No school related stuff, sleeping in, staying up late. HA! Not for me. I'm pretty sure the latest I slept in to was 9 o clock..maybe 9:30. Hmm...I wanted to have more music on My MP3 player before we went...oh at the moment all I have on my MP3 player music wise is a Paramore CD and Jonas brothers CD...kinda sad isn't it? But how is this related to our vacation? Ah well my parents like to talk or whatever, so they don't listen to music in the car so I have to listen to the same thing over and over on my MP3 player....hmm not much different to the radio I guess....FM 97 plays the same like ten songs all the time...OH and that's another thing! Do other places outside of the Lancaster area not have radio stations???? I never seem to be able to get music any where else on the radio...well there was the one time Me and My sister were coming home from Indiana and We got country music....the rest was all fuzzy...haha that's the first time We heard honky tonkbadonkadonk...but anyway...yea I like music....I'm actually listening to a play list of mine at this very moment.....its music from WJTL...I figure that's school appropriate? Oh well....My Moms gonna read this and be like "your not supposed to listen to anything but classical"...but isn't Christan music good too??...well I guess Skillet isn't to Good to help concentration...But yeaaa i totally got off subject....We had a totally rad oops the 80's called they want their word back :P

A little something that i did for school:)

How did the appeal of the world mentioned in 1st John 2:16 relate to the appeal of the forbidden fruit?

The way they are related is The appeal of the fruit and the appeal of the world wasn't made by God. The temptations and appeal to UN-Godly things are presented by Satan. Satan is always around the corner waiting to tempt us to do things that would disappoint God. He want to screw us up and get us to turn away from Jesus. His whole life is trying to mess with us and the world.

And how is all this connected to Jesus' temptation in Luke chapter 4?

The story in Luke is the one about Jesus in the desert fasting when along comes Satan and he tries to mess up Jesus. But Jesus wasnt having it and He told Satan to back off.

The way its all connected is Satan tries to mess EVERYONE up. He even had the nerve to try and mess with Jesus! He doesnt know the meaning of limits and will do ANYTHING to mess you up.

So just stay with Jesus and tell Him when Satan tries to mess with you and Jesus will take care of him. He doesnt want you to stumble just because Satan is a jerk who doesnt know when to give up.

So whenever you have bad thoughts or do something you arent exactly proud of, pray to God and He will take care of it...and in the end He will take care of that Looser Satan.

Little women

Little Women is a story about four young girls during the civil war dealing with their growth to womanhood. Jo, Beth, Amy and Meg are struggling with their mother to keep food on the table while their father is away as a doctor for the soldiers. Together they deal with growing up, love, death, new friends, new experiences, heartbreak and forgiveness. Jo was the tomboy of the family and often thought it would be easier if she was a boy. The rest were dignified young ladies that were usually on their best behavior. They all were Strong and Dependant.

It's a very good book...especially if you want some good role models.

I liked it because its relatable to almost every girl no matter what time period. The girl I am most like I believe is Jo.
It was a very good book except for one part. Some of the characters didnt marry the right people in the end **cough**Jo and Laurie**cough**.
other then that it was reaalllyyy good:]

The Hiding Place

Okay, so i just read a book a week or so ago. That book was "The hiding place". And my mom wants me to write a sort of a review about the book. So I will do the best I can, since I don't exactly know how to write a proper review I'll just write a little bit about the plots and what I liked and whatnot.

The hiding place is a book about a lady named Corrie ten Boom. She was a middle aged woman during the world war 2. She lived in Holland with her father and sister Betsie. Her father was a clock maker, and since she never fell in love and did not get married she lived and helped in the home above the shop. The building was called a Beje [bay-yay]. For a while she lived a pretty normal and quiet life. That is, until a shop across the street was raided by German soldiers because the owner was Jewish. She brought him in and made a call to her brother wilem who was hiding Jews and finding places for them to live. This was her first encounter with the "underground" and organization that helped Jews. She began asking her brother to help more and more until he couldn't anymore. So she took his place and the little Beje became the center of an entire organization in the underground that reached all over Holland. She was doing good, until she and a bunch of other people got in trouble by falling into a trap set by the Germans. They arrested her and her sister and everyone else in the beje at the time. She went to a local prison where she had a few roommates for a little while but was then sent to solitary. The food was bad, she wore the same clothes for months, and she started talking to ants. On the night of Hitlers birthday all the guards went out to celebrate and the prisoners took that to their advantage to learn about other people in the prison. Corrie learned that some of her family was released, her sister betsie was down the hall and sadly her father died 10 days into being at the prison. The guards then moved everyone at that prison to a few different prisons and finally to a concentration camp. Even though all of this bad has happened to corrie ten boom she tried to look at positive even though she wasn't able to find positive in the situations all the time. She survived the war but again sadly, her sister betsie did not.

I liked this book, because I like history and true stories. Corrie ten Boom was brave and stood for what she believed in. She even witnessed to her fellow prisoners about God whenever she could. She kept faith in God even through her hardest struggles.

popcorn rocks

Okay so my dad is a truck driver and he goes all over the country and even to Canada sometimes he brings back something interesting. A week or so ago he brought home these rocks called popcorn rocks, and what happens is, you put the rock in a jar and cover it with white vinegar and then after a while it actually gets bigger. Well my mom and i put one of them in today and its already grown quite a bit. Soo i thought that was sorta interesting.
Not a whole lot has happened lately...its actually starting to feel a little bit like fall so that's nice. Fall is my favorite season because it isn't to cold or to hot and i like the leaves when they change color. I also like thanksgiving and Halloween [thanksgiving 'cause i get to see family and Halloween 'cause of the candy]. Oh and school just started for a lot of people...not me though i started a few weeks ago...actually my one friend Ashley doesn't start until next Tuesday so shes lucky.
Well that's all for now,
P.S. I'll keep y'all posted on the rocks i guess=]
