It is a very visible part of ULL and has been looked passed and it is apparent that it has been neglected for years. Our Action Project is focusing on not only adding on to the bus stop, but also the renewal of what is already there.
Our project topic is something that is important because the current bus stop does not meet certain needs. When you are at the bus stop to go to Cajun Field and you look at the covering you will notice that it is falling apart However, there must be one main thesis that the author is attempting to get through to his audience.
Leopold argues that we Americans have manipulated the landscape and ecosystem of the prairie so that it seems to be nothing more that a tool at our disposal. All aspects of what was once a beautiful, untamed frontier have been driven back further and further, until they were trapped in the ditches It was winter. There was pleasant sunshine. The sun started punctually Just at 6 a.
I sat beside a window and was looking outside. The sun was rising with all its splendid beauty. Within an hour our bus began running leaving the urban areas at a high speed along the road with green fields on both sides. I was looking at the houses, trees, and meadows through the window with a cheerful mind. Things came to my vision and vanished in the twinkling of an eye.
Everything on either side seemed running swiftly to the opposite direction. I was really charmed at the green beauties of Nature. It filled my heart with great Joy. Their eyes are bleary, reactions slow, tiredness running in their veins just the same as their blood.
It takes forever, it seems, to the passengers, for the old diesel engine to roar into life. When it does, a funny feeling comes, not excitement, though at first it appears that way. It's some relief, some fear, some grieving for the place they leave.
Ahead is unknown, all they can do is pray for things to be better where they are heading for they cannot know what is on the other end, at the depot the bus stops at, engines cooling. Some cry, some look grim, and the children are held close and loved with all the strength they have left in their bodies. For what else is there the care about than their children? What else? And so though the bus is dirty and the road pitted and made bumpy with rocks, soon the tires will kiss the smooth tarmac of their destination.
Will there be flowers and love? Will there be bread and a hard bed? With the bus in motion, an emotional no-man's land takes hold in its myriad of manifestations, every person unique, destination known and unknown all at once. By Angela Abraham, daisydescriptionari , November 17, Leave a comment General The bus is sleek, running over the black tarmac so fast that the passing greenery becomes a hazy blur.
The windows are beaded and the rain beats on the roof like some crazy drummer. Inside we are a curious mixture of cozy and bored, all of us itching for the destination that will come eventually.
Until then we read, feign sleep, do crosswords and tell jokes. Some read newspapers, kindles or work on laptops, most periodically check texts and smart phones - the addiction of our age, of our western society. All the while the engines purr; the aroma is of new plastics and fabrics. Perhaps "bus" isn't even the right word, maybe "coach" is, but in the end, what does it matter?
We get to the destination just the same. Leave a comment General At the front of the bus sat a kid so tiny his bobbled hat only just peaked over the back of his seat. With every bounce of the suspension his head wobbled like it was only loosely attached to his neck.
Then every once in a while he would disappear from view, only to bob right back up again. After ten minutes or so he wiped the condensation from the window with mittened hand and pressed a button nose to the glass.
Hayley glanced around trying to see which one of these people looked like his mother. The kid was white, but that hardly helped, almost everyone on the bus was.
His hair was covered. She gave up, it wasn't a very rewarding guessing game and she was going all the way to the depot, time for some music. By the time they arrived it there were only a few folks left, the kid included. As always, she got off last, hurrying just wasn't her thing. The boy was actually a girl, under that hat were auburn curls and in her hand was the leash of a puppy.
When she walked off with no adult By Angela Abraham, daisydescriptionari , January 23, Leave a comment General So when I see the bus pull in, an old model with worse suspension than a homemade pram, my heart sinks. Once the temperatures spikes that tin can's gonna stink worse than a half-time locker room. Then some infant will puke and and old man will puff on some homemade blend of tobacco. These buses have one rule — sit down and keep your mouth shut or get off.
Well, that is the rule unless you have more brawn than the driver, then you can say whatever the hell you like.I interviewed a 23 year old White female, named Jessica. His hair was covered. The second point about modern American culture is the continued rising of the automobile industry and its related businesses.
Once the temperatures spikes that tin can's gonna stink worse than a half-time locker room. The countryside passes like a bad movie I've seen too many times before. I think of Hey, Soul Sister by Train. How to cite this page Choose cite format:.
I had recess for some days. Leave a comment General Loud, obnoxious children yelled and laughed. I was looking at the houses, trees, and meadows through the window with a cheerful mind. Therefore, I went to the main building where passengers buy bus passes to ask what bus I need to transfer on to get to Guilford County Social Services It's some relief, some fear, some grieving for the place they leave. Then every once in a while he would disappear from view, only to bob right back up again.
After a failed attempt at seat-hunting, I resorted to standing, and got hold of one of the handles. One can understand why an individual would be disorientated and or confused on what bus to get on. That's not me though, skinny girls like me sit and try to blend into the never washed seats with faces pointed at the window and never catching anyones eye. From the frying pan into the inferno; every step I took towards my seat on Bus-VNS16 amplified my angst. Whether on a flight to Shanghai, taking an opportune walk in the park or seated on the bus staring out the window - home is a place deep within me. And so though the bus is dirty and the road pitted and made bumpy with rocks, soon the tires will kiss the smooth tarmac of their destination.
But we always found our way back to our corner in bus VNS16, the space between us filled with love, hate, boredom and fun, lots of fun. The topic is close to home, and everyone will be able to add to the discussion and the support of their peers.
