Comparing And Contrasting Rich And Poor Homes
You might wonder why there have been many Egyptian buildings found still standing but not houses. The answer is mudbrick. Houses built with mudbrick do not last, while houses built with stone last for a long time. In Egypt there is a huge difference in living standards between the rich and the poor. Differences occur in the layout of the house, the materials used to build it, and of course the size. The poor, or the common people, lived in either townhouses or normal homes. Townhouses were usually two to three stories high. The ground floor often kept for businesses, and the rest provided living space for the family. A typical home consisted of a living room, a sleeping room, a kitchen and maybe even a cellar for storage. These homes were built with sun-dried bricks, or reed matting smeared with clay which did not last long. On the other hand, the wealthy had huge houses depending on the persons power. Some houses were even on the Nile. The houses were rather vertical than horizontal, not to take up much space of the fertile land used for agriculture. Homes included gardens, reception rooms, private quarters and even bathrooms and toilets. Windows were placed at the upper part of the building. They would be covered with mats to keep out the sun, dust and even the flies. While most of the houses in Egypt were built with sun-dried bricks, those who can afford to, built them with stone. The ones constructed with stone were much sturdier and solidly built. The wealthy houses even contained tiled floors and painted walls making the home look more elegant. While Egyptian houses built by commoners and nobles might have differed in many respects, in many others, they were quite similar. Almost all houses were built with a flat roof. Not only did this make the construction process simpler, but the flat roofs also acted as an escape from the burning heat inside the home. People would sometimes sleep and cook on the roof to avoid the heat. Also common in Egyptian housing...

A residential home in Pathanapuram

A home is a place of residence or refuge.[1] When it refers to a building, it is usually a place in which an individual or a family can rest and store personal property. Most modern-day households contain sanitary facilities and a means of preparing food. Animals have their own

homes as well, either living in the wild or in a domesticated environment. "Home" is also used to refer to the geographical area (whether it be a suburb, town, city or country) in which a person grew up or feels they belong, or it can refer to the native habitat of a wild animal. As an alternative to the definition of "home" as a physical locale, home may be perceived to have no physical definitioninstead, home may relate instead to a mental or emotional state of refuge or comfort.[citation needed] There are cultures in which members lack permanent homes, such as with nomadic people.

The word "home" can be used for various types of residential community institutions in which people can live, such as nursing homes, group homes (orphanages for children, retirement homes for seniors, prisons for criminals, treatment facilities, etc.), and foster homes. In computer terminology, a 'home' may refer to a starting view that branches off into other tasks, e.g. a homepage or a desktop. Many such home pages on the internet start with introductory information, recent news or events, and links to subpages. "Home" may also refer to a home directory which contains the personal files of a given user of the computer system.

[edit] Psychological impact


Since it can be said that humans are generally creatures of habit, the state of a person's home has been known to physiologically influence their behavior, emotions, and overall mental health.[citation needed] The loss of a home (due to whatever reason, be it through accident or natural disaster, repossession, or in the case of children simply the decision to move on the part of the parents) can be a valid cause of grief.
Further information: moving

Some people may become homesick when they leave their home over an extended period of time. Sometimes homesickness can cause a person to feel actual symptoms of illness. It has been argued that psychologically "The strongest sense of home commonly coincides geographically with a dwelling. Usually the sense of home attenuates as one moves away from that point, but it does not do so in a fixed or regular way."[2] Furthermore, places like homes can trigger self-reflection, thoughts about who one is or used to be or who one might become. These types of reflections also occur in places where there is a collective historical identity, such as Gettysburg or Ground Zero.[3] In the past the mother was the person who ran the household. The house was a place for women's work more than anywhere else. However, in the modern sense, these duties are now shared between mother and father. In Western countries, the home has become a place for more equality in duties, the roles are shared and the burden of maintaining the household is a shared family responsibility.[4]

Question 4: Begin a story with "It had been raining all day..."

It had been raining all day, and my feet hurts from walking a lot. It was lucky for me to spot a safe-house a few feet away earlier. As soon as I went in, I barricaded the heavy metal door with an old work desk and a rotting sofa. I took off my shoes and wet socks, and hanged them on a chair nearby. I lighted up an old oil lamp to warm myself up. I looked up to the walls, full of scribbles left by other survivors that had passed by here before. Writings of farewells and survival tips were done by markers and spray-cans. There were two sleeping bags beside a shelf full of ammunition and an axe on it. It had been 2 months since the mysterious flu outbreak broke out. I remember that night I was hanging out with my friends in the lounge room, enjoying some snacks before going to bed. It was our second month of National Service program, and everyone was anticipating to go back home the next month. A participant switched the MTV channel to TV'3, and a breaking news was on. The host lady looked shaken, and she reported that an accident had occurred at the National Hospital in Kuala Lumpur that left many dead people. It was suspected as a terrorist attack, but a surviving doctor stated that the patients who were infected with an unknown virus began to act strangely violent hours before the massacre. As my friends and I were focused in the news, the whole dorm had a sudden black-out. The warden came in, telling everyone to quickly evacuate to the field. I remember like it was yesterday, seeing a helicopter picking up a few people and taking them to somewhere safe. When it was my turn to board it, I heard the other participants scream. I looked back, and saw one of the boys lying dead on the ground. Another was standing over him with a bloody mouth. As the memory played in my mind, I loaded the shotgun I was holding onto with 10 bullets. I scavenged the safe-house for anything edible, but only found a pack of biscuits. I sat and ate in silence, cautious for any sign of movement outside the other metal door. I took out a map I had found earlier on, and began marking roads and shortcuts to use for my escape. When I came across an abandoned police station earlier, there was a working radio. After making sure there were no infected 'zombies' around, I switched the radio on. Someone was broadcasting in it! Whoever who was broadcasting stated that there will be a helicopter at the other side of the Penang Bridge every afternoon to pick up any survivors. I was so excited, I took out my map and marked the location. I didn't notice there was a zombie coming from behind, so in the midst of confusion, I accidentally shot the radio. As I rested enough, I stood up. I packed a medical-kit, some ammunition and a few other necessities into my back pack. I used a spray-can to write on the wall about the rescue helicopter for any other survivors who might come by here later. I walked to the other door, took off the metal bar, and cautiously made my way. I figured that if I follow the highway, it will lead me towards the bridge. I wiped my sweaty face. I accidentally shot a car earlier on, letting the alarm go off and attracting a whole horde of zombies towards me. Luckily I managed to make a Molotov bomb, lighted it up and threw it towards the coming horde. When the flames were slowing the zombies down, I quickly made my way away from that area. To my luck, I came upon the Penang Bridge. As I expected, the bridge was long and full of abandoned cars. I picked up a walkie-talkie from a

dead officer, and heard it crack. Someone was speaking through. I immediately responded, saying I am on the bridge, waiting for the rescue helicopter. The man in the walkie-talkie stated that the helicopter is on its way, and will be landing at the other side of the bridge. My heart skipped a beat, thinking if it was possible for me to run across a huge bridge full of zombies on it. I cursed under my breath, but said I will do my best to do so. The man wished me good luck, and warned me about the fighter jets that will be bombing the bridge down soon. I fastened the walkie-talkie onto my belt, and braced myself for one heck of a run. My blood was running fast through my veins, and my breathing was ragged. I quickly snatched up a machine gun that was left on the road by a dead soldier. Running on top of cars was harder than it seemed in movies. I was sure that the other side of the bridge wasn't far away from where I am now. I peeked through a stained window of a car, and saw an unimaginable count of zombies on the other side. I took my last Molotov bomb, lighted it up, climbed on top of a car hood and threw it towards the horde, and made my way through the flames. At the same time, I used the machine gun to shoot at the coming zombies. It was difficult to get head-shots, but I had to slow them down. I could hear the thundering sounds of fighter jets flying by above, dropping bombs behind me. The bombs vibrated the cars, and I fell down hard on my chest. I quickly scrambled up, ignoring my bleeding forehead. I saw a yellow helicopter landing not far away, and I did my best to run faster. I hear the pilot shouting for me to run faster, as the horde was closing in on us. Another man in the helicopter opened the door, grabbed and dragged my weakened self into it. He helped fastened the seat belt on me, giving me a thumbs-up and shouting "You did well! We are going home now!". I let the empty machine gun roll onto the floor. My eyes drifted towards the bridge that was getting smaller in the distance, and saw the fighter jets dropping more bombs across the bridge, destroying it to pieces. The pilot's assistant helped clean my wound on my forehead. I felt so tired, I finally fall into a solitary sleep. End.

If I could build my dream house it would be amazing.I would like it to be on the Hawaiian island of Maui.Also my house would sit on the beautiful,white,sandy beaches.My dream house would include a beautiful bedroom,lugubrious bathroom,and an exciting back yard.

The first rooms that i would want to look great would be the bedrooms.My beds would be queen sized and fluffy.The window would be really big so you could sit in it.My closet would be a walk-in and beside it on the wall would be a flat screen TV.The bedrooms would also have a hangout area.

Also other rooms inside would be the bathrooms.The bathtub would be a Jacuzzi.It would also have a shower.I would also have a towel warmer and a TV.The sink would be huge so I could put everything on it and the toilet would be automatic.

The outside is going to be the best part of the house.My pool would start at three feet and go to twenty feet.Beside the pool would be the hot tub.I would have a volleyball and basketball court.The last big part would be a skating rink which would turn into a ice-skating rink in the winter.

I am speechless but I now realize that this is where my dream really is With the warm welcome but also takingmy dream clutching it Giving a surprise by staying

While I love going to Romania as much as ever, the convenience of the United States of America keeps me here, leaving the temptations of Romania only as memories from my childhood and a place to visit. Visiting Romania Its like going to the best vacation where I can eat my favorite food and drink natural flavored drinks. On the other hand living in the United States is quite different in comparison to living in Romania on a huge farm with a lot of land and animals around. Comparing the two places is like comparing an apple to a pear, which is totally different in look, shape, and color. After living in Los Angeles for the past four years I have noticed the differences between the two countries and how the lifestyles differ from each other; the differences are: Romania is less crowded than Los Angeles, the houses are a lot larger, and Romanians live a much more relaxed life than most people in America. To begin with, living in Romania on a big farm for eighteen years is a little bit different than living in a big crowded city such as Los Angeles. I remember when I was back home and I had to get up early to feed all of the animals before I could go to school. Living on a big farm where you have a lot of land and animals to take care of is not at all easy. On the other hand, there were good things about it because I did not have to go to the market and wait in line for hours to get some bread and milk. However, I had friends who had to because they did not live on a farm. Now that I am living in a crowded city like Los Angeles, here I do not have to struggle to wake up early before the sun does. Now that I dont have to deal with animals my life is completely different and a lot easier, but some way is boring. Going to the market where is a quick 20minute trip and I just pick everything I need for at least a week, which is very convenient. Of course, they are different countries, which implies a different lifestyle. Likewise, In Romania I was... The word home is something that is often misunderstood. Home makes up your identity and not many people know that. Therefore you ask me, what is home? Home is not just in your house. Home is a place that surrounds you. Its you environment and cause for emotions. Your home is where you are with the people that surround you (peers, family, and strangers), as well as cars, houses, stores, and/or toys. All of these things (people, buildings, playful objects, and nature) are the components that make up a home. Some people dont have all of those things in their home though. A homeless man has no house to live in whereas a rich man has a beautiful house to his or her accommodations as well as anything that will make him or her happy. This also explains the question, where is home? Home has no exact place to be. Your home can be on the opposite side of someone else's home. You can even share the same home with family members that live with you, even though they see it different than you. That is because you dont share the same emotions. Emotions are expressed differently through each person because of their life experiences. A young child could be laughed at at school, while their brother or sister(s) isnt laughed at. The result for that is that they could live in the same home, but be different people in their personalities. The word personalities is often mixed up with the word identity. The way a person is treated affects their personalities. Not really their identities.

People often mistake home as a place where you are always happy to be around the people you live with, or live around and talk to on a regular basis. That is not completely true, however. A teenager can be used as a great example of this. Most teenagers dont get along with their parents because of their desire to be free. This is a stereotype however, meaning not all teenagers feel this way.... Feeling homesick is a natural reaction most of us experience when we move on from one phase of our life to another and leave important relationships behind. We begin to establish a sense of ourselves being separate from our family and friends, which is really important. The sooner we get along with new people and get involved in a new life, the sooner these feeling disappears. It's hard to be homesick because you're caught between two things you want - to have fun with your friends or want to be back home where you feel safe. Homesickness can be overcomed with time, most of us experience this. As I was flying down the Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Sarasota, Florida I realized that place where I always dreamt to be. At first, I felt nervous, but as the week went on, I found that I liked the academy and met lots of new people from all over the world. Bollettieri Tennis Academy made the training and activities I had done before a lots of fun. At campus, the food was nutritious You must Login to view the entire essay.

Concerning homesickness, there was no problem for the moment, everything was fine and I was not missing anything back home. Days went by; school, tennis, and activities were going fine. Adapting to my new living in Florida was not a problem, it was a city where everything was available. A few months a big problem arouse. Homesickness! But why was this happening? The problems were the school was difficult, I was missing my family and friends, and the most difficult thing to adapt to where the strict rules the academy imposed. Furthermore, there where rules such as being in the room at certain times, we could not leave campus easily, school rules where much stricter. In addition, even though I had new friends, nothing was the same and I really missed my family. Overall, I was not playing my tennis well. I wanted to go back...
Introduction

Homesickness , also called nostalgia , is the feeling of missing being at home , in familiar surroundings . Students who have recently left for college may feel it . Anyone who has recently moved , or who is on

vacation (especially away from family ) may feel it . It is very normal to experience homesickness . For many people , homesickness can lead to some great advantages in their new situations . For others , it can become very rough . In general , though , homesickness is something everyone experiences from time and to time and is a good motivator for change . The first advantage to homesickness is that it forces people to stay busy . Busyness allows people to be involved in lots of different activities , and explore their new area . When a person is very busy , they don 't have much time to dwell on their sad feelings , and they feel happier (Hitti . Being so busy may not leave much time for old friends , however . Sometimes missing old friends isn 't a bad thing ! Everyone has ``that ' friend . The friend who is much more a taker than a giver , and who actually annoys them . Most people don 't have the heart to cut ties with this person when they are seeing them everyday . However , if a person has recently moved away permanently , and is not just on vacation , it can be easy to cut ties with old friends who aren 't so good for them (Jackson . Once a person has cut ties with some friends , it 's time to make some new ones ! New friends are people who are going through exactly the same thing , at the same time , and who share any new interests a person may have . Being homesick is easily combated when a person decides to go out and make some new friends , because then the new area seems more familiar , and the person has a new life (Homeier . New friends aren 't the only advantage of homesickness , though . Being able to pick up new activities is also fun . Back in the old town or school , a person may have been defined in a particular way - a jock , a cheerleader , a loser . But a new place allows

a chance to become a new person . Instead of feeling homesick for what was , a person can realize that this is actually a brand new chance to be who they always dreamed of being . However , to be able to take advantage of any of these positives , a person must have gotten over the negative side of homesickness (Homeier . It is not always easy to overcome the initial feelings of homesickness , which may include loneliness , sadness , anxiety , and longing . A person who is homesick may internalize their feelings and not take advantage of their new surroundings , and may become depressed , more anxious , lost , and feel as though they are going crazy . Preparation for leaving before actually moving may help , like spending the night away from home just for one or two days (Thurber . According to Muller , ``Leaving home may initiate a grief...
