By the time we left the airport it was around 2100 hours and we had a bus ride that was two hours long. That was the longest two hours of my life. As the bus rolled up to Fort Leonard Wood, we drove right up to the reception bay. As the drill sergeant came on the bus, you can guess what was next. “Get of my bus and go into the reception bay!” At that time, we had a debriefing about what will happen the next day, got our bed sheets, and a bed to sleep in for the night.
While Edison was a full time inventor, he was hardly aware of the condition of his family until someone else told him. He finds out that his older brother Pitt died at the age of 59 broke and penniless in 1891 (Benge, p. 166) Then, only 5 years later in 92 year old father dies on February 26, 1896. (Benge p. 166) Edison never liked to be somewhere where there was a lot of emotion so he avoided his family at that time. These events are the most important moments in Edison’s
“I know, I haven’t seen you guys for a few months,” another kid chimes in. After I arrive back home, my mom questions me, “So how did your first day go?” “It was one of the most fun days of my life” I say, as I divulge into the story of the whole day. After I came to Amherst, I didn’t know how it would impact my life since being the new kid is nerve-racking at times. It caused me to be antsy at first about talking to people, and not wanting to share personal information about myself. I came to a realization a few years later, that this was the change I needed in my life, to be able to talk to people and step outside of my comfort circle, and it has shaped me to be the person I am
The hard part was to find one that would give me a tryout. I ended up making a team called the Spanish town football club they weren’t the best but they taught me a lot about the game I spent a year there. My next task was to get on my prep school team who were ranked #7 in the whole nation at the time. I remember the night before open tryouts because all I was thinking about was me not making it. I was an only child but I had a cousin who was a year older me he taught a lot.
He was very skinny and he was asking people for money for food on the sidewalk . I couldn’t give him any money as i was too young to have a job . the next week I lost my phone that my father bought me as a gift for taking my first steps . he gave me an iphone so i can call when there was an emergency, even though i was 1 one i was very smart and talented . I felt so happy that i started showing everyone in my english class since i was very advanced then everyone else , However one day i had dropped my phone off the rollercoaster at six flags and did not notice until i got off, and of course the roller coaster was small but i am just a kid.
I was seven years old at the time and like most seven year olds i've dreamed of going to disney world.but there was one bad thing about it we had to take a bus to get there. Well at the time they told me we had to but we really didn't.and what made it worst was that all majority of my family was coming.why you ask is that such a bad thing its fun doing things with family.yeah your right in all but we going to all going to be on a bus for over 10 hours together. I remember the time only a few of us took a trip and we argued and argued till we got there and that trip was less than 5 hours long.so i had very low expectation for this trip that we were about to go on.the trip wasn't that important but it wasn't that bad. We had finally arrived and i was filled with excitement. this was my first time going to disney world and i wasn't about to take any moment for granite.
My mother was tired, but I was ecstatic about going on my first field trip with my friends and my mother (which I would later regret). As I was getting dressed the movie Parent Trap the 1998 version was playing on my television. This was the film based on two twin sisters (both played by Lindsay Lohan) separated at birth who discovered each other for the first time at a random summer camp, creating a plan to get their mom and dad back together again after 11 years. At the time, it was the perfect movie, I figure that I was going to discover myself on this trip and would come back home a completely different person. Clearly, I was foolish at the
We were preparing for a 10 day camping trip and my Grandpa said that there was a storm coming, so we started to leave to beat the storm. We were halfway to the campground in Ohio and it was barely raining. I was a 8 hour trip, so once we got there it was pouring in the middle of the night and we had to set up the camper. The next day, the people who were camping with us all went out and had a bike ride around the campground. The next day we were all going to a island to bike around and do other things.
My dad and I sat out there the whole morning and saw….nothing! The start of my hunting season was turning out to be like last year’s season when I didn’t see a thing the whole first weekend. After a whole three hours of sitting in the brisk wilderness, my dad and I drove back to my grandpa’s house with the four wheeler. I enjoyed my second breakfast, which was the leftover hot chocolate I had earlier this morning, and a delectable Subway breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese and bacon. Since we had a long and boring morning, my dad and I decided to head back home and rest for the night shift of hunting.
“Get dressed Lauren the bus will arrive in fifteen minutes!” My dad exclaimed. Whoosh! What the… I was in my room without getting up and walking there myself? Whatever, it’s the last day! I ran out to the bus, and took a seat next to my cousin, Jack.
