A Place You Consider Beautiful

My Beautiful Place

Have you ever felt like you were born in the wrong era? I ask this because I know I do. The place that I consider beautiful is America, but please bear with me for a second and let me explain. I’m not talking about the America built on people who are famous for just being famous or the obese population produced by Mc Donald’s, I’m not even referring to the weather (yes I’m still bitter about the excuse of a “summer” we get in Ireland). To me America isn’t beautiful anymore but back in the 1940’s – 1960’s; well that’s a completely different picture. I hold my hand up and say this image that I fantasise about has come from sappy chick flicks such as “the Notebook” and any of Marylyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn’s collections but as a history student I believe I can back myself up with a little knowledge of this beautiful place in time.

I know how lucky I am to live in a time when thinking for oneself is replaced with “sure, google it” and one’s privacy has now ceased to exist due to one tweeting about the “amazeballs” time they’re having where ever they may be . That may sound narky and I completely agree that life has gotten much easier and technology keeps us safer (or so we like to believe) nowadays but is it all necessary? I confess I’m writing this with an iphone glued to my hand and my eyes fixed on the computer and I would lose all ability to function without them by my side but it is this dependence on technology that disgusts me about the 21st century compared to my fantasy life in this past era. Life seemed so much more simple back then. People knew their neighbours and not only talked to them but gave a helping hand anytime they could. The world seemed like such a big place that would take forever and a day to concur and kids were happy to play in the dirt and weren’t afraid to fall and break every bone in their little bodies. However it is not just the Stepford wives picture of the perfect family that I fantasise about.

    A Beautiful Place Everyone has their favorite place, if it’s in their heads or in real life. This is about one of my favorite places. This place would be the place I’d always go to whenever I had the free time. Even if I didn’t, I’d take the project I was working on and finish it there. No one ever went to the place or did I tell them where I was going so I was all alone in complete solitude. I used to live on a farm, out where no one could see. When you step outside you will see never ending…

    The Botanical Gardens is definitely one interesting place that I would recommend to anyone who asks me for my advice. The beauty of it is somehow beyond description. Each flower, each plant has its own way of capturing your soul. Each blade of grass, each tree somehow knows how to coordinate with others to form a picturesque scenery that no architect or designer could ever copy. No best selling novelist or Nobel prize winner could possibly put its miraculous beauty into words. One actually has to…

    My understanding of the poem was to figure out if I was going to go through with killing my step-brother or the neighbor’s child or my last chose, to sacrifice myself. This poem had a lot of meaning. The poem meant the world is a beautiful place without continuous violence, people being unhappy, people stressing, some people dying, and even some people being on drugs or people starving or people striving to do good things. This meant to me that I need to take life and my education much more serious…

    I think we all have a beautiful place in our mind. I have a wonderful place that made me happy when I was a little girl. But sometimes I think that I am the only person who likes this place and I'm asking myself if this place will be as beautiful as I thought when I will go back to visit it again. Perhaps I made it beautiful in my mind. Located on Ireland’s dramatic coastline that has been carved out by the huge Atlantic waves, lonely lakes and lofty mountains that separate communities. Follow the…

    The most beautiful place (Alex) The most beautiful place for me is Spain. When I was eleven years old, my mother and I first went abroad. Mom and I both love to travel. Before that we visited several neighboring countries that were part of the USSR, because we do not need a visa to travel there. Those countries are almost the same as my Kazakhstan, everywhere people understand the Russian language, architecture and lifestyle in them the same. But I knew that in Spain, everything will…

    J. Are you considered “beautiful”? Whenever you hear the word beauty, what first pops in your head? BEAUTY - a six-letter word yet has a wide variety of definition. The concept of beauty varies from one culture to another. What one finds beautiful someone else might find bizarre, outrageous, or sometimes, even ugly. Spray tans are the norm for the people in Jersey Shore, yet for people in Southeast Asia, they infatuate with the pale, white skin that they consider as beautiful. Right now…

    mine. I feel fine though because I’m living in the most liveable place, for instance, any day you can be under the sun and then a second later you’ve got the noise of thunder all around. The climate in Australia is incredible, so many different changes. And why are we deleting the trees? Isn’t it a known fact that everybody needs them to breath? I can scream out all of my love to the people because I’m living in a place where all the guns are illegal, but I feel the cops need to stop the…
