A long time ago in a school not so far away a peculiar event occurred,that I will never forget. It all started on the first day of school. It was my first year at Finley Farms Elementary and I was ready for the second grade, or so I thought. I entered my classroom and was happy to learn.
Vacation on a cruise Terror fled over the people as the boat went down. People were screaming and trying to find the life jackets. Chloe, Aubriee, and Amanda dropped the lifeboat… they hit the water with a big SMACK!!! “ Come on, we have to go now!’’ Amanda shouted, “ We can’t go shopping today, Chloe and I have to work” said Aubriee
In my lifetime, I haven’t had the best of luck when it comes to injuries. For example I’ve been burnt a few times, had many cuts and bruises, even had my head split open but one injury that always sticks in my mind is when I almost broke my jaw. It was about 8/9 years ago and I was at a wedding, everything was going well, the day was lovely the newlyweds and their guest were happy including me until the agonising moment occurred. I was on the dance floor with my sister Kameryn and our friend Chloe, when they decided to take off their shoes and return to the floor and me being the child that I was I copied them, then they both decided to twirl, again I copied but I didn’t work out as well for me as it did for Kameryn and Chloe.
He was taken so soon at the young age of 30. He had so much life to live. He was married to a beautiful and strong wife, who has become my pillar of inspiration as she continues to be the strong for her family and their children. Their daughter, Izzy, has become the backbone of their family. Being diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of two, she offers me a solace of hope as she represents what it means
I never thought I would end up in this program. In a strange and perceptible way I’m glad I did. This program allowed me to come into realization of what I really wanted to do and laid down the foundation of me taking those steps to achieve my goals. What lead me to this academic point in my life? Ignoring my desire of what I really wanted to pursue.
My family and I were all going to the Rockies game. There was actually a lot of us who had went, First it was my brother, sister, mom, grandma, grandpa, my three cousins, and my friend, my sister’s friend, plus my brothers friend. The day was going to be exciting. I went with my mom to go pick up my friend, while the rest of the family went to the Rockies game and went to get some food. Sometime later me, my friend, and my mom all arrive at the Rockies game.
We had just gotten off of the tea cups, when we walked past Apollo's Chariot. My dad said as a joke “Hey Emily do you want to go on the roller coaster?”. I thought about it for a second and then I said, “sure”. He was surprised, but he said “let's do it!”.
A family of three, a father, a daughter, and a son, lived in a quaint little cabin shrouded in the thick foliage miles away from civilization. It was a late afternoon. A cool breeze swept over the silent, wooded neighborhood. The two siblings were home alone left to tend their studies.
All growing up, Washington was a place of sunshine, family, and exploring. It was more than just a summer vacation, it was a second home. When I was 13, I became absolutely determined to save enough money to purchase a plane ticket and I set out to make that dream a reality. Once I had saved enough to get a roundtrip ticket, I pitched the idea to my mom, and because she wanted to reward my determination, she made plans for me to stay with my grandpa.
This picture I chose, is a picture of my Grandpa and I. My grandfather was my best friend who I always looked up to. He was my role model in life. Whenever I needed someone he was always there, or whenever I needed advice he was always there. We had such a great relationship!
One explicit, gorgeous Wednesday morning, I’m awakened by the sound of my phone. “Hello?” “Hey Bruce, sorry for the inconvenience of time but we have an emergency meeting at an abandoned warehouse in the middle of Tiger Mountain, Washington Forest.” “Alright, that’s fine. Hey, are you feeling okay?
“This isn't happening today, this doesn't happen. The chances are to thin for it to ever happen.” Words sank and echoed off the cliffs. The camera still stood there, hooked onto the tripod motionless. No one to pan over to the sunset between the hills, no one to strike the compound and start driving home.
A few months ago, as my mother picked me up from school, she broke the news to me that my grandfather developed stage 4 lung cancer. Since my grandfather is one of the most important people in my life, hearing the news that he was soon passing away made me, and the people around me feel completely helpless. As my mom broke this horrible news to me, I shut myself from believing it. I find it quaint that my grandfather impacted my life in such a tremendous way. Although my grandfather was not biologically related to me, he taught me how giving up is never the solution to a problem.
