Soon as we egged their house, they let their pit-bull out on us. He chased us, and I’m jumping on everybody cars and trash cans outside. When we left the neighborhood, the man and his sons came down the road shooting up in the air.
Although my parents said to stay still if I ever got lost (months in advance), my feet wouldn't listen to me. I kept looking and looking, but to no avail. It was either I was looking in the wrong places or the fact that I'm too short. Probably both. With too many bodies per square foot, it was hard to move around.
As I walked out of the airport, unfamiliar faces surrounded me. I was beginning my first week in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere -Haiti. We rode in an open air box truck to where we would be staying, bouncing out of our seat with every bump along the way.

I 'm just minding my business doing this and that then a speaker came on saying that if someone writes an essay about the cubs game from last year, they get to go to a chicago cubs game. I started the essay and talked about what happened at last year 's game. I am finished with it and gave it to the radio people and won the tickets. I was so happy that I get to go to a cubs game.

Sorry, no can do” (28). The officer told me that no one can assist me because the other officers were responding to more important calls. The officer also said it was not a big deal because it was not a life-and-death situation; it was just a stolen property.

In early September my family and I took a trip up to State College, Pennsylvania for the Rutgers Penn State game. Even though it was not the outcome I wanted for my Scarlet Knights, we still had a great time. Just being there for only a couple minutes, I quickly learned that when you travel for an away game with your desired sports team, you are going to feel like the minority. Kickoff was at eight o’clock in the evening, so that meant my day started at eleven in the morning in “Happy Valley.”
