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.

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.**

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 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:]
