The walls had to be wiped from ceiling to floor. When I thought I was done I had to let him know so he could check my room and if I missed anything I had to fix it before I could do anything else. Sleeping past 9 meant you were wasting the day away, and really you should be up by 8, and laying around on the couch all day became less of an option as I got
Remember that frightening monster that was under your bed, well he is back with a message to deliver.

After the events, Orr started another journey working for Family Planning International Assistance (FPIA) during which Orr worked in many different positions in this organization and where he learned vital management skills. After leaving FPIA, Orr went to work in El Salvador as a consultant, during his stay there he is involved in a rather daunting ordeal.

In this part of the book, Orr elaborates on how the media messed up their reporting and how they did not report the correct details.
War- Allie Maples had come to hate the word more than anything else in her world, she tried to shut it out of her mind when she heard it spoken, but the word echoed through her ears as she raced toward the lake behind her father‘s plantation. That is all everyone is talking about theses days. Why they cannot find something else to talk about is beyond me, thought Allie as she made her way to the gazebo; apprehensively, she sat down. She could not even enjoy the sanctity of her favorite place on her father’s plantation because of all the war talk. The lake behind their home had always been one of Allie’s favorite places to go, when she needed to be alone.
At 5:45 AM the alarm on my phone blared some generic default tone that I had never gotten around to changing. This was probably the earliest I’ve ever gotten up in my entire life. I groggily removed myself from the pile of blankets on the floor that I had been sleeping in and headed for the shower, brushed my teeth, washed my face and searched my near empty closet for something to wear on my first day of school. Although I was absolutely exhausted and there was yet to be any furniture in my room, I was thrilled to be transferring to Pattonville High School in midst of my junior year and living in a bigger house in a better community.
It was a rehearsal day for our school musical and I had left my house a little late for class that morning, so I grabbed the first pair of sweats in my unsurprisingly uncoordinated closet and went. I got to the stage that afternoon and took my clothes out of my bag, leaving to the crowded bathroom to go change. To my disappointment, (honestly, there isn’t even a word great enough to convey what I felt at this moment) I had brought possibly the ugliest pair of sweats that I will probably ever own in my lifetime. They were gray, sort of skin tight, clinging onto every flaw on my large thighs in a more than unflattering way, and the best part about them was that they were bootcut. If there is one article of clothing people with large thighs can’t
At the end of the duty day which was around 1700 I kept to my normal schedule of going to chow and then the gym instead of prioritizing what needed to be done by getting a haircut prior to chow and the gym. After returning from the gym I took a shower with planes to go to the barber shop. Once I sat down on my bed to cool off I feel asleep until 2100, once I woke up and realized that all of the barber shops would be closed I went around to other people in the barracks asking if anyone had clippers so that I could cut my own hair, no one did. In the morning once I went into the Platoon Sergeants office and noticed that I did not get a haircut he yelled at me “weren’t you told to get a haircut, your fired get out of my office and have SGT Walker come in as your replacement”. When the Platoon Sergeant went down to the 1SG meeting, the first thing that 1SG asked was if I had gotten a haircut, and when told no, immediately called the Battalion CSM to inform him that I had not gotten one as ordered.
My Military Journey As I finished packing my bags, I hear the doorbell ring. I stumble over my bag trying got out of my bedroom to the door. I looked though the peephole and there stood my recruiter SFC Jackson come to pick me up. My parents were still asleep so I awake them and told them I was leaving and they hugged me and said, “We love you”. I tried not to tear up but I could not hold back the tears from waling in my eyes.
Most people gained a lot of independence going to college out of state; however, I stayed within an hours drive of immediate family, and an even shorter drive to extended family. DU was also a comfortable choice for me because my sister would be a senior as I began my first year and my cousin played hockey at DU, so I had been to DU many times before. Going into a college where nothing is familiar—the buildings, the environment, the people, the accent—is intimidating. This experience is one of the most straight forward ways to become an independent
I can tell that Piper is not who she pretends to be and will most likely involve Moose in a scheme she has or get him into trouble for something that she does. She breaks her father’s rule of speaking about Al Capone and having Moose work with her on a special project she has. Her “project” is to get money by using the convicts to do laundry for their classmates without the warden knowing. In the novel Al Capone Does My Shirts I think it has just the right amount of foreshadowing. The author gives the right amount of clues to help you guess of what is going to come next with each person’s story.
Today was the day, the last day of practice, before I had my first hunter jumper show. My I just realized that I was going to have to wash all my equestrian pants. I only had one pair clean and they were my black show pants. I had a brand new shirt for the show. When I got out of the shower I put on my pants I wore yesterday but it was only a two hour practice.
