In April of 2010, my dad, mom, and I traveled to Orlando, Florida. We stayed there for about a little over a week and it was so much fun. On one of the Wednesdays we were there we started off the day by going to Walt Disney World. We began by going through security which nobody likes because it takes a little time out of your day, but it keeps everyone safe so it is an appreciable thing. While we were going through security we saw lots of moms and dads being annoyed by their screaming children.
It was the seventh day and I saw my grandfather and dad talking my grandfather said the last word and they hugged I was so confused what was going on, but it stayed in the back of my mind the rest of the trip. On the tenth day we went to the Hollywood Studies. I rode a ride called the Tower of Terror it was one of the best rides I had been on in Disney it is a complete adrenalin rush. I also went on the great movie ride which is cool because you find out so much about old movies and I love it my sister didn’t like it. It was the final day of the trip my seventh Birthday the first thing that happened was when my parents told me that they were getting married I was so excited as well as shocked.
Originally, I had to work on weekdays. However, due to the clashing with my summer course schedule, I had to give up on a few days of my work in order to attend the lectures. Seeing as my friend was desperately looking for a job, I introduced her to my boss and applied for her to become my replacement while I study. She eagerly accepted. On the eve of her first day of work, I
These devoted people are volunteers, and they believe life’s most extraordinary pleasure is the joy of helping others. I experience this joy every time I volunteer, and I recognize it as one of life 's greatest pleasures. My most rewarding volunteer experience was the time I operated a game booth at my church 's annual fair. I
It 's really hard to gather together, last year, he had a good Christmas Day with his own family, it was fun, but he always felt like there must be something that lost, the feeling was not so comfortable. But now everything was on the right track. After the "guests" took off their package, they went to the shopping mall in the downtown, on the way to downtown, Gustaf was very talkable. "Hi, Sunny, my sister, what about your grade at
I, too, was a selfish and spoiled person until an eye opening experience happened to me. It was the Wednesday during spring break, and school was out. My family and I decided to take a trip to Lafayette to visit my cousin and the new apartment she was renting. It was the perfect day for all of us. My aunt who has MS got to see her daughter which does
I’m positive that after the “cuteness factor” of me singing it wore off my family hated the song from me playing it over and over again. This One’s for the Girls- Martina McBride This song came out when I was six years old. It is very significant to me because when I hear it I remember singing happily in the car with my mom being joyous, and having no major troubles or stresses in life. It also reminds me of the first concert I attended. My family went to the state fair just to hear Martina McBride in concert.
It was great to see them since the last time we had met was a long time ago. We drove all the way to Dexter as they proceeded to ask me the usual questions: how my flight went, if I had met any new friends, and so on. All I wanted was to get home to study my flashcards that I had been using on the plane. This next week was leading up to one of the pivotal moments in my life, because I would go to my first day at my new high school. I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I truly didn’t know how this event was going to be changing my life. The night my dad carried “Baby Lucy” through the airport gates brought me much excitement and brought much, much more to my life. The joyful adventure of welcoming my baby sister home began on a late night in October at the Pittsburgh Airport. I should tell you that my family videotaped that event. This video certainly helps me remember it in greater detail.
Maybe a road trip! My mom has always wanted to do a road trip, she’d love to do that! I mean, it's not like the flight tickets to Disney are that expensive during spring break… Actually… that's a lie, they are. But that doesn’t matter because maybe we could get refunded! It is still three hours before our flight, I'm sure someone would eagerly grab a hold of our tickets!
The Andre House has daily interviews with individuals who show that they are clean of drugs, employed or at least seeking employment to show that they can be in these houses that offers meals, and no charge of rent. By getting this offer of housing, the “guests live together in community, supporting one another on their journey and helping each other transition into permanent housing” (andrehouse.org). It’s hard for many homeless people to get back on their feet, and with this support group, it makes it easier for guests to get their life back on track. Andre House does a satisfactory job helping many individuals to get a life they deserve through the use of
1) I could make a long list of what I accomplished in my life such as winning Most Valuable Player award, but there is one thing that I prize the most and made these accomplishments possible: Moving to America. 2) moving to here and losing my mom marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, it made me to understand the world better, it made me to appreciate the god for what I have and not for the things that I don’t. It is such a vivid memory that I have carried with myself till now, memory of when I was in Iran’s airport and was talking to my mother face to face for the last time. Her words changed a person who I was before and made me to keep moving forward, even though I lost her and would never see and hear her voice again. She said
The Dumas were given so much kindness and were accepted so quickly in those two short years that they were in America. They were highly thought of in their community that they didn’t want to go back to their homeland of Iran after their two-year were up. They didn’t know when they were going to come back, the girl even said so herself, “I didn’t know then that indeed be returning to America about two years later” (Dumas, 16).All that the girl knew was that everyone was upset that she was leaving. “ The last month of our stay, I attended one slumber party after another, all thrown in my honor” (Dumas, 16).She also knew that, even though her mother could not speak or understand hardly any English, she was thankful for all that the community
Fifty-two chapters, thousands of girls, timeless friendships through sisterhood, one big family. I’ve always known that I wanted to move away from home for greater opportunities and experiences. Although my parents were very optimistic about my decisions and the route I chose, it was difficult to leave home. The five-hour flight alone, the lonesome nights without my family, the horrifying first day speeches and upperclassmen, having no car to get around, and maybe the possibility of not liking your dorm roommates. It felt like the list would never end.
After 11 years in Louisville, Scott and I have made our move back home to Indiana to be closer to our family. We will miss all of our friends in Kentucky more than we can tell you...too many to list here, but you all know who you are. It was a difficult and emotional decision to make but we are excited to be home. I will go to work at IU Health in the morning and Scott is still remotely working for Honeywell, supporting Boeing. We have certainly been reminded that life is short and priorities change and nothing is more important than family.
