One of my favorite things to do right when I get to Florida is go in the ocean and relax on the beach. I have been to Florida many times and everytime I go there, I always have a day planned just to go to the beach and relax. I always enjoy going in the nice cold water then relaxing on the hot sand at the beach. Sometimes there are beach volleyball nets set up so my family and I always play a game if a court is available. Also my dad and I play catch on the beach with either a baseball or football.
The process leading up to the day was more important than the actual event. This coming of age taught me many things, including responsibility, determination, confidence, time management, and that hard work pays off. Overall, my bat mitzvah was an amazing experience full of preparation and enjoyment, in which many virtues were learned. Numerous preparations allowed me to be ready for this special event. I had an extra long Torah reading and haftarah, which took even more studying than normal.
As a younger child, I felt like being Jewish was nothing out of the ordinary. I attended a Jewish preschool and grew up in a fairly Jewish area where the people around me were familiar with Jewish customs and traditions, even if they, themselves were not Jewish. For the most part, wherever there were Christmas decorations on display, there were Hanukkah decorations as well. As I have gotten older, I have come to understand that it is not unusual for Jewish children to feel alienated during the holiday season for not celebrating Christmas, and I too have come to experience the same alienation. Starting in September, stores are flooded with all things Christmas.
This first stop was a huge one for me and we had little time to do everything we wanted to do. This trip was planned around Rylie and I and what we wanted to see first. I remember the excitement overwhelmed my entire body when our captain came over the intercom and announced, “We will be over Hawaii in twenty minutes.” This is when it was really started to settle in. That entire twenty minutes I was so electrified, I just wanted to land. I remember flying over the islands and looking down to see the gorgeous light blue ocean, the green luscious trees and ponds and streams.
The members played a big part in this personal growth of mine, as well. I was shocked when random community members would come up to me to congratulate me on a win or ask how the teams are looking. It was important for me to be assured that they care about the things I was doing. These small conversations felt like an invitation for me to start and hold meaningful conversations with adults. Some of the greatest lessons that I have taken from high school are lessons that have nothing to do with the curriculum.
The flight took 16 hours, technically 2 days, We’re almost to the shore of California beach, California looks so beautiful from up here, all the light scattered across the ground. We finally got off the plane, my dad which I haven’t seen in years drove us to an apartment, 3 days after Meadowbrook Middle School starts teaching, for those 3 days we went around and eat new food, greet the neighbors. The first day of a new school in years, I’m shy, so I couldn’t make any friends, it was just me and my sister for the few first weeks, during that time I lost all connections with my Vietnamese friends, they all left my group chat and I never knew why. I couldn’t make new friends, I never had to, I was in my old school my whole life, friends come and go, they usually approach my group (the whole class because the school was small) and that’s how I made new friends, but now seeing that I’m the only one without a group, I was scared that they wouldn’t accept me. I start to over exaggerate everything.
All I knew was that I wanted to make a difference in someone 's life. It took me 18 years of experience and a great deal of self-reflection before I realized that social work is exactly what I 'm looking for. Now that I know, so many things come to my head when I think about why I want to pursue social work. One of the major reasons is because I 've always loved people. Since as long as I could remember I 've had a genuine care for the happiness and wellbeing of others.
Soon after I found out the news about going to Florida, I then began to think about how we were going to get there. I have never been on a plane before, but apparently, we were going to be riding one there. After finding out that I was going to be on a plane for the first time, I was terrified. One, I am afraid of heights and two, I have never been out of the state without my family. I shouldn 't have been even panicking yet, because I haven 't asked to go yet.
Culture is the beliefs, values, and background unique to an individual person or group of people. Jewish culture is focused on the action and life of YHWH and his teachings. Judaism influences the lives of practitioners by increasing their faith through their internal and external values by learning about central figures, the creation story of the universe, sacred texts, key beliefs and teachings, numbers of believers and major sects,methods of prayer and worship, holy days and festivals, and holy places. The Jewish faith was first started over 3,500 thousand years ago. The Jews believe that the world was created in a week with a new creation each day.
I don 't believe, at that time, I fully understood the weight of what I was learning. I had never in my life felt as loved or accepted as I did at camp. My friend and I continued to go to camp every summer throughout elementary and high school. It didn 't matter what point I was at in my life, camp was a safe haven of love. Each year, I would come and hear a little more about my creator.
The skills I have been able to develope since joining the National Honor Society are skills that I will will use for the rest of my life. Before joining the National Honor Society I was a typically high school student who really did not care about anything around him. Since joining the NHS I have grown a new appreciation for everything around me. I have grown as a leader and a person and I have learned to have a new outlook on life. When it comes to leadership, there is one thing that I am very proud of.
I really didn’t care about my responsibilities. Also during my earlier twenties, I wasn’t even thinking about getting married. I didn’t think much about settling down. I was always on the go. Now at Twenty Eight, I’m happily married maintaining my relationship as we continue to move forward in our lives as we aim for greatness.

Sharkasm The year was two thousand, fifteen , Claire Spedale, Janie Spedale, and I were enjoying a leisurely day on the warm white sand of Rosemary Beach. Lathered in dermatologist recommended sunblock, we embrace the warm essence of the summer sun. The Spedale’s had obtained several chairs, boogie boards, and most importantly Tahiti Island. Tahiti Island was an extravagant inflatable island with drink holders, chairs, and a slide. The entire extended Spedale family attended the annual family beach trip, and that day were all there on the ever so coveted Tahiti Island.
