Imagine your life was as close to perfect as it could’ve gotten. You had good grades that you are proud of, you had your small family, and you were like a normal kid. Then the feeling of being normal just disappears one day. Well, that’s how I felt when Morgan Blunier entered my live. She is a crazy one, that Morgan. When she has an idea, you better say your farewells because you never know what might happen. Her idea of fun is walking on top of falling-in roofs, driving gators through muddy ditches, trying to shoot birds with a kids bow and arrow, and trying to make our own torches drenched in wasp raid. Very few of our ideas are smart and if our parents knew what we were doing at the time, we would be in an enormous amount of trouble. You see, my life has changed so much in the past few years that we are starting to think alike and have the same crazy and reckless ideas. We have many funny stories to tell our summers together, and one of my favorite ones was on a rainy day last spring. We were driving our gator through the mud, and we drove into a ditch on the side of the road (luckily we live out in the middle of nowhere so not many cars were …show more content…
Just to add on to our anger, my mom and my sister drove by on their way home from IGA and stopped to take pictures! After my mom and my sister were satisfied with their pictures, they drove away, leaving us with a stuck gator that wouldn’t budge, and our own sour attitudes. With the determination to go into the dry, warm house and put on dry, clean clothes was enough to give us the strength to get the gator out of that horrid ditch. We learned a good lesson that day, even though at the time we thought this stupid gator would be sitting is that ditch for a while, or until Morgan 's dad came home from work. Although we were very angry at the time, we look back at it now and start laughing like

My dad and I went on a muzzleloader antelope hunting trip, in Central Oregon. Four days into our trip, on September 1st, we started our morning off like the past three days, very tired. We stumbled out of our beds and, drowsily, we geared up and left for another unknowing day of hunting. Once we arrived at some alfalfa fields, my dad let me drive the dirt roads.

Children are given the luxury of romanticizing the subtleties of life. Curiosity aloofly guides their imagination, which allows them to perceive and preserve the world as utopian, enhancing their happiness. However, as time passes, this luxury is categorized as a childish delusion when it was previously praised. Individuals who lacked this protection were forced to mature at a faster rate, helping them view life with more transparency. Jeanette Walls' intimate memoir, The Glass Castle, questions why this romanization is a distorted perception and discusses how it harms one’s healing.
The 41 Pound Bluecat It was a warm, breezy summer morning at Milford Reservoir. My dad had just woken up and he came to wake me up. We got dressed and got the boat ready and headed out to the boat dock. When we got there I got in the boat and got the life jackets out. My dad got in the truck and backed me into the water.

Hi, I am Paige Marquis and this is my story from beginning to end. It all began in a hospital named Baton Rouge General on Bluebonnet in East Baton Rouge, Louisiana when a woman named Jennifer Welch gave birth to the most beautifulest angel in the world (aka me). As I was growing up I lived all over Louisiana, my birthplace. I switched from living with my mom, to my dad, to with my grandma and other family that was living with her, and then to my grandpa, with all of that moving around practically every year that also meant a new schools every year. I was moving around so much, I practically shut myself off and stopped trying to make new friends.

(I’d just had the car maybe a month!). This guy had basically something off of Jurassic park on the front of his jeep. THANKFULLY it was on the passenger side so its just like a bad crick in the neck. But I really didn’t see him coming so I was pretty limber. He was flying... and there I was trying to take off taking a left turn.
We stayed on a resort, and the nearest golf club made dinner for everyone on the resort. All we had to do was pick it up. I was out with my father and two brothers, named Christopher and Stephen, going for a driving tour of the surrounding areas nearest the resort. The tour was extremely scenic, with palmetto trees everywhere. I just so happened to be looking out the window and said a little too loudly, “STOP!”.
There were 15 of us from my church all squished into two vans. While I climbed into this big van I thought it was going to be so fun to drive up a mountain, see all the appealing scenery and have the thrill of almost feeling like we're going to fall. Well…. I was wrong. Every second there was a huge bump or pothole in the road so our heads were slamming against the side of the van.
In the beginning of the series, Morgan possessed a positive and hopeful outlook on life, despite what was happening. This however came to a complete stop after the death of his wife and son. He became an emotionless machine whose only purpose was to kill. His severe PTSD pushed his inner demons to the brink. It was only when he was taught aikido, that he learned peace again.
The first day if hunting we went into the Black Hills and did a lot if walking to find some deer. When we finally found some my brother was the first to shoot, since he picked the bigger straw out of three, which was how we decided who gets to shoot first, he missed. So I was next up and when we saw another deer it was really far away and it took my seven shits before I killed it. It wasn't even worth trying to kill it because it was just a fawn and I wasted seven shots killing it and that was the end of day one.
