A Mountain Journey Vocabulary

Eternal: Mist, like the shadow of universal darkness on the treeless summit, moved about him, searched every crevice of the mountain land, roamed in great billow, formed in the blindness and suffering of eternal homelessness.

Beggared:  A beggared moon from behind a grey rack of clouds wandered in the sky above the earth’s desolation and in its light he perceived on the slope above him, where the fire had leaped from the cabin, stiff, branchless trees, like a parade of skeletons climbing up the mountainside.

Once he joined the Royal gang, he had many terrible fights and this experience had involved Andy.   

The couple Freddie and Angela came into the alley suddenly. They found the victim was lay bleeding in the rain on the sidewalk 

“We found a boy lay bleeding in the rain, I asked him he’s cut, and he nodded. I saw the lettering on the jacket. THE ROYALS. He’s a Royal,” said Freddie 

We didn’t know what to do because if we get a cop the Guardians will find out who and I hesitated. So, we left him. I got panic,” said Angela.  

I found him in the alleyway in a minute past midnight. I left the dance to look for him. When I found him, I told him I’m Laura, he didn’t answer. I ran from the alley hysterically and didn’t stop running until I found the cop,” said Andy’s girlfriend, Laura.              

Laura mentioned that Andy had left the jump to get a package of cigarettes. He had told me he would be back in a few minutes, and then he had gone  

downstairs and found the candy store closed.  

“He’s dead. I picked up the jacket and turned it over in my hands, he’s a Royal,” said Adrian the cop.                                                              



Gender Inequality Article

This Article is about that women still face pregnancy prejudice, sexual harassment, and gender gap. It says that condones a culture of inequity against women. It also talks about although there’s no disparity in lower levels of education and work, higher ranks often reveal opposite. While the starting pay for college graduates is the same for both gender, a gap starts to broaden going up to post-graduate, and have supervisory levels. It involves the women that are pregnant, students, and gender pay gap. I chose this article because, first of all, this news is from Philippines and I’m Filipino, and they talked about how Filipinas (women in Philippines) are rather freer career-wise. I understand that because I already know that Filipinas have several jobs/works, just to have enough money. This news article and from the story have connections. From this article, women can do anything, they get several jobs just to have money. From the story, the part when Alma asked the teacher, why can’t girls carry the water bucket. I think from the article and from the story, it relates because like, why can’t women get a big job like boys have, and probably the payments too. Why do women have to have several jobs/works just to have a bigger money. And from the story, why can’t the girls carry the water bucket because I believe that at least some the girls can carry the water bucket. Girls can also do anything what boys do. For example, it doesn’t mean you’re a girl you can’t play basketball, because there are still girls that can be able to play basketball and other sports not just boys. All people should be treated the same.
